Editor’s Verdict:

MegaFriends may have a slightly silly name but how does it do at getting you a date? Well it takes a number of approaches, its selection of chat features being its trump card. However its relatively low membership numbers mean that there is a lot of competition from elsewhere.

One issue that you might have in using Mega Friends is that the membership numbers in your country might be very low. It’s certainly worth checking how many people live within a reasonable distance of you before deciding to pay up for gold membership, unless of course you are interested in moving abroad. Indeed, some members do seem to have this focus, specifically looking for long term partners in other countries. If you’re looking for someone a bit more local, though, a quick search will give you a good idea of your chances.

Profiles are okay, but nothing particularly special. You can upload as many photos as you like, which is a nice addition, but the quality tends to be quite average. Despite being able to see who is online, not many members actually appear to be frequent users of the site and it can feel a little lonely at times.

Searching on MegaFriends.com is relatively simple and there are over 120 specific details to pick from. It’s not necessarily the quickest search system, though, as it often involves ticking or unticking a mass of boxes to get the details right for you. Let’s assume you’ve found a member or two who you are interested in getting to know better, what now? Well there are a number of ways to chat to them, including sending an email-style message, using an instant messenger service or through a webcam. It’s nice to have a few options because sometimes you’ll want to chat face-to-face and hear someone’s voice, but at other times you might just want to take your time to respond in a written format.

Compared with many other dating sites, this one simply lacks the membership numbers and motivation to be a good contender. That said, you might find a few members who you’d like to speak with, particularly if you’re looking to move abroad or have someone move to be with you. This is a relatively cheap site, but there are others at a comparable price which will likely get you more dating success. You won’t be losing out on much by browsing for members, but your time might be better spent elsewhere.
