“fair enough”

11/09/22 Overall Rating: 3.0

This is probably one of the better dating sites but that doesn't mean it's great. I have found it to be a very frustrating experience. What's frustrating is that, like other sites, they present matches who are no longer paying members so there's an illusion that a member has many more matches than is actually the case. Members will go to send an email which will never be answered because the person is no longer a paying member and can't see your email.

After months of signing in I just had a crush on someone here. Keeping my fingers crossed and hopes it all turn out as planned. Keep it up guys; on the other hand, I don't mind recommending this site to my friends


“They have no mercy for broken hearted or lonely people, GO AWAY”

07/15/22 Overall Rating: 1.0

Plenty of fish. Not a good experience. Some very clever and manipulative scammers using the site. Having been nearly had, elsewhere, I insisted on video call with the “woman” I was chatting to, she insisted I use the one on the site indicated by an icon I could not find. She “helped me” eventually sending link to a site posing as POF video, which - surprise surprise, wanted my credit card details including ccv. Which is where I pressed the delete button. Us lonely, sometimes old, widowers etc might just as well have a target painted on our backs,


“It paid off handsomely ”

10/28/19 Overall Rating: 3.0

I met someone after only 2 weeks on the site. I didn't expect to meet someone this fast. We're still on the early stages of the relationship, but it seems to be going really well. And I couldn't be any luckier - she lived only a few miles away from me! I was wary of using this since the price is pretty steep, but I was willing to take the risk for this beautiful woman, and it paid off handsomely. Not sure what the statistic is for other users, but I'm pretty sure I'm one of the lucky ones. Never expected to meet a lovely woman just because I was reading The Guardian based on a headline I first saw on Facebook. Funny how life works out.


“ Scammers everywhere! ”

10/17/19 Overall Rating: 2.0

Guardian Soulmates is a dating site run by the Guardian newspaper. Their membership numbers are mostly made up of Guardian readers. The site has a very small number of members when compared to larger UK dating sites. However, that this is really a niche dating site for those with a little more culture running through their veins. There's a large number of Nigerian scammers on the site. I wish they would have better profile moderation process.


“Loving the people here!”

10/16/19 Overall Rating: 4.0

Easy to use, straightforward dating site where liberal, left-leaning, creative, witty, clever people go to connect with like-minded geniuses. Or at least someone who reads the same newspaper.


“ Very pretentious flaky men”

10/13/19 Overall Rating: 2.0

Joined Guardian soulmates, it was one of a number of dating sites that I tried out. Would say stay away if you are underemployed. I am very well educated but setting up my own business and didn't have enough money for the likes of the people on the guardian website. Men who earn way above the national average e.g. 45k upwards expect their date not only to be physically attractive but to match them income wise. I also found men who were on the guardian website more flaky than other websites. I won't be going back on it, however I won't be going back on online dating full stop.


“The quality of members is above average ”

09/23/19 Overall Rating: 3.0

Despite the name, Soulmates operates on a more dating website structure. It's not as intensive as other websites on matchmaking, with their personality tests and scientific algorithms. It's just your run-of-the-mill online dating service. However, the quality of members here is above average. With most of them being integrated from The Guardian, you can expect them to be well-read, well-traveled, and well-versed in the finer things in life. You'll find anyone throughout the UK with all sorts of sexual orientation, educational background, and financial status.
