Independent Dating: How to make use of the site features

 

With so many online dating sites out there it can be hard deciding which site is the right one for you. Here at Independent Dating we know how important it is to meet someone who is on your wave-length and that’s exactly why we offer a service that is dedicated to helping like-minded singles to connect.

On top of this, we have some of the best site features around to make sure you have the very best dating experience possible. Take a look at some of the features you can expect to benefit from when you join Independent Dating.

Encounters

Our Encounters facility lets you browse through member profiles while rating them ‘Yes, No or Maybe’, so you can let others know if you’d like to meet them or not. We’ll keep a record of all the people you’ve said ‘yes’ to, show you the members that have said ‘yes’ to you and show you if you have any matches (where you both rate each other as a yes).

Who’s near me

The Who’s Near Me facility is an interactive map that will show you singles by their location. Scroll around the map, zoom into the bubbles, and view profiles all from the map – the best way to find singles in the area you live, work or like to hang out.

Ice breaker

Once you’ve signed up to the site, and before you’ve upgraded your account, you can send a free ice-breaker.  An ice-breaker is the perfect opportunity to introduce yourself to a group of singles, whilst at the same time gauging your response. Kind of like a ‘try before you buy’!

Filtering

With so many singles looking for love online it can sometimes feel like finding a needle in a haystack. That’s where our filtering facility comes in handy! Set filters on your account to make sure you’re only contacted by the people you want to be.

Notification bar

You’ll never miss a thing with our notification bar. Situated at the bottom of the site, the notification bar will alert you every time you get a new wink, message, profile view and much more, so you’ll always be in the know.

Video profile

You can really let your personality shine through with our video profiling facility. Record your very own video and upload it to your profile to shows others the real you.

Mobile platform

We don’t want you to miss any dating opportunities and that’s why you can date on the go with Independent Dating. Find singles in your local area, reply to messages and arrange dates – all from the palm of your hand!

With all these benefits and so much more Independent Dating takes the stress out of dating, leaving you to make the right connection with the right singles. Join free today and take a look for yourself!
