The search function includes various filters such as age and distance which help narrow what can other be an overwhelming list of possibilities down to a special few. It is then possible to message a potential partner to see if the interest is reciprocated. This site has a lot of different features that would sound positively overwhelming if listed together.
Fortunately, the interface has been laid out in the most intuitive manner and there are never more than the necessary number of options available at any given time. The same is true of the profiles. An initial look provides a lot of information but it is also possible to receive a much more detailed view if the other person has chosen to share that information.
The user base is as large as it is diverse. This makes it relatively simple to find a potential partner by narrowing down the options without having to sacrifice any desirable traits. There have been many success stories and even those people for whom it takes longer to find something there is still a very good chance of a happy ending.
