There’s no cringey profile writing, because My Single Friend believe that your friends know you best – so you friends write your profile for you! Just like having a virtual wingman by your side, it takes the hassle and stigma out of dating and paints a better picture of you as a person. Your friends can even recommend other singles on the site to you, and it doesn’t matter who starts the process – your friend can add you, or you can join up and simply give them your friend’s email address.
mysinglefriend.com is one of the UK’s most popular dating sites. Created by TV presenter Sarah Beeny, the site delivers a no-nonsense approach to dating as everyone on the site is described by their friends. The site has banished the stigma associated with online dating and innovated a modern approach to finding likeminded people.
Back in 2004 mysinglefriend.com was just an idea born from Sarah Beeny’s love of match-making. A notorious “fixer”, Sarah often wondered if there was an easier way to match-make her friends without terrifying them! She realised that if friends wrote descriptions for a single friend and placed them all on the same site, they could check each other out.
By involving your friend, you’ve not only done the hard bit (letting them know), but you now have someone to use as a virtual wing man, and you can get them to help you out.
In short it’s a social dating site – mysinglefriend.com is a social network of single people all described by their friends. Groups of friends are linked together making it, unlike any other dating website, a community.
