Italiano Singles Review

Italiano Singles brings together Italian singles from around the world, which you’ll discover is about as close to home as you’re going to get unless you pay to use this site. Although it looks the same as it did before, it seems that it has done a restructuring of its services as far as what you can experience for free on the site before signing up to a premium membership. In the end, you’re mostly going in blind when it comes to upgrading, since you’ll have such a limited access to searches on the site before paying.

Its biggest drawback is the lack of localized searches until you upgrade your membership. You can supposedly search by country and state or province. However, my test search results ended up being all over the place rather than within my selected area. It’s impossible to know what’s going on in your neck of the woods with such random results returned from a search. The profiles do list last login time, at least, so if you can find some more local members it’ll help you know whether they’re active on Italiano Singles.

“One good thing about ItalianoSingles is that it’s free to reply either on instant messaging or by email.”

Nevertheless, profile creation is certainly one of the stronger areas of ItalianoSingles.com. Sites generally try to get you in as quickly as they can. Many don’t require answers to very many questions. Italian singles looking to find dates on this website must put in a little effort. On average, they ask more questions than most other dating sites. You can easily pick random answers to speed up the process of getting inside for your tour, but, in the end, the extra details they ask for go a long was to ensuring better profiles.

Generally, I expect a site with a specific cultural group in mind to make some effort to create a sense of online community, or even offer tailored information and news stories from outside the site that relate to its specific niche. You won’t find anything like that on this site. At least there’s an advice column where someone named Keeley answers members’ questions about dating and relationships. I’m not quite sure what her qualifications are, but from what I read she gives frank, commonsense advice.

One good thing about ItalianoSingles is that it’s free to reply either on instant messaging or by email. You can only respond once to each message you receive, but, obviously, as long as the paid member continues with his/her end of the conversation, you can continue a dialogue. That’s good, since there’s limited traffic to the site, despite a slight increase in visitors to its pages. The best part of Italiano Singles is the price, which remains highly competitive.

Italian Singles Connection Review

Italian Singles Connection is the place for Italian singles to meet. If you’re a man then you’ll soon find lots of women on this site who are looking to meet someone special and become their “bella ragazza” and possibly one day their wife. This site lends itself well to folks hoping to start a more serious relationship. It’s more conservative in tone than many dating sites out there. It’s the kind of place to meet a guy or gal who’s good enough to take home to “madre” and “padre.”

Completing a profile on ItalianSinglesConnection.com is super easy and requires no time at all. Even though little info is required to complete the process, there are added options. You can include details about your ideal first date and preferred romantic holiday getaway. You can also do a personality test and a specific color, such as yellow, blue, red or white, will be assigned to your profile based on the results. This color coding will be explained in detail for those reading your profile.

“Before paying, you also have the chance to use the Italian Singles Connection matchmaking system.”

While browsing for free through the member profiles, try sending “a smile” or an e-card to show you like a person’s profile. You can also read the message boards for free, so you can get an impression of what it’s like in this online community. When you upgrade you can start to send and receive email, actively post in the message boards, enter the live chat rooms and have a private discussion using instant messaging.

Before paying, you also have the chance to use the ItalianSinglesConnection matchmaking system. Beyond simply ticking off checkboxes describing your preferred partner, you also have a chance to rate, by percentage, what replies should count for more in the overall assessment of your ideal match. Hair color, for example, might be less important to defining your perfect person than level of education. Once the form is completed, the program sends compatible results to your offsite email.

Although the site offers a full range of features and services, it seems to lack the ability to attract many visitors to its pages. That might be in part because only paid members can exchange emails, severely limiting your chances of meeting anyone even if you pay for a membership. If the other person hasn’t already decided to sign up, that individual will be notified of receiving your email but can’t even read it before upgrading to a premium subscription.

However, one positive change they made is making it even more competitive to join. If you’re interested in only meeting those serious enough to financially commit to pursuits of romance, then consider visiting Italian Singles Connection to start your own “storia d’amore.”

Italian Friend Finder Review

Italian Friend Finder does a very good job of creating a sense of community. It’s where you can meet a friend or even find amore. It might be with someone from around the corner or from around the globe. Many sites targeting a specific niche fall short in terms of offering more than just a cookie-cutter type of experience. The fact that this one succeeds where others have failed definitely counts in its favor.

The free profile process on ItalianFriendFinder.com is simple enough, because there isn’t much info you have to supply. Still, you have the option of giving a more detailed portrait of yourself. It takes quite some time to fill out the optional dropdown menus, text fields and essays. All the same, it can be worth it, because people can get to know you better faster.

“You can reply to 10 emails from paid subscribers each day and that’s actually good news for both free and premium subscribers.”

As a free member you can do searches within your zip code (U.S. only). You’ll only be able to view some select profiles in their totality. At least the summary results reveal how far away members are from you and when they last logged into the site. If you live outside the United States, you’ll be limited to a whole country and state or province. You can reply to 10 emails from paid subscribers each day and that’s actually good news for both free and premium subscribers.

One of the site’s strengths is the amount of extra features. You can access chat rooms, blogs, groups and magazine articles to entertain you. Some sites scrimp on such things, even though they’re a key part of any real dating community. However, access is limited to many of the features unless you upgrade. In fact, you must pay for the most expensive membership if you want unlimited access to everything on the site.

Despite all the extra areas to visit on Italian Friend Finder, surfing the site is easy. The navigation and menus are self-explanatory and there’s always a way to get back to where you were before. Sometimes, there can be a lot of stuff on the screen, so you might need a bit of time to get familiar with how the site works. Once you do, though, it should be smooth sailing!

The site has seen a real drop in the number of visitors it gets. Maybe people aren’t happy to find out how little they really can do if they don’t pay to upgrade. I can tell you that it doesn’t cost much money to join, so you don’t have to spend much to enjoy the full experience of what it offers. Italian Friend Finder is inexpensive enough that you’re not risking much to sign up for full access.
