Then once you have filled out your profile you will be able to find the option to start the free 3 day trial at the top right of the screen. The free trial is really nice since it gives you the opportunity to test drive the site before committing to a longer paid membership.
You can make full use of all the features that you would have available as a paid member, including full mobile support. It is also a good opportunity to find out how many potential dates are living within a sensible distance to your location, although with over 5 million UK members you would have to live in the Outer Hebrides before you struggle to find someone.
If you do enjoy the trial most people do! The 6 month membership is easily the best value and will provide you with plenty of time to go out on a number of dates before settling on someone.

Joined an online dating site and after a couple of months I met Damian. We emailed and spoke online for a few weeks, before talking on the phone most nights.
We eventually met up for our first date and have never looked back. We've now been married nearly two years, and have an week old son. Say what you're looking for. If you're after a soulmate and they just want a quick fumble in the bushes, it'll only waste your time. If it's you that's after a quick fumble, don't be too boorish - make sure they're happy too.
