So who is AmericanSingles
and what are they all about?
AmericanSingles is a California company based in Beverly Hills.
They have been online since 1999 and are still one of the most popular
dating sites in America today. Here's what they had to say about
their mission statement:
"AmericanSingles is a leading provider of online personals
services in the United States and internationally. We enable adults
to meet online and participate in a community, become friends, date,
form a long-term relationship or marry. In the first six months
of 2004 we averaged approximately 5.3 million unique monthly visitors
to our Web sites, which, according to comScore Media Metrix, ranked
us as the second largest online personals property among United
States Internet users. Currently, our key Web sites are AmericanSingles
and JDate. Membership on our sites is free and allows a registered
user to post a personal profile and to access our searchable database
of member profiles and our 24/7 customer service. The ability to
communicate with other members requires a monthly subscription fee,
which represents our primary source of revenue."
AmericanSingles.com makes it easy to meet people outside your usual
circle, whether it's in your own home town or across the sea. Just
think, you might be walking past your soul mate every day and never
even know it. Members come from all over the United States and beyond,

What we didn't like about the site:
|No webcam features
or video/audio introductions, but it has everything else.
||AmericanSingles is an excellent
site. It is well presented, has lots of features, loads quickly, didn't
crash and we had a great time interacting with other members in the
sites chatrooms and profiles. The free phone support is great too.
Add to the fact that you get access to most of its features as a basic
member and you will have no problems deciding if this site is for
you or not. It's definitely for us and we'll be using it for a long
time to come :-) After testing this site for a few days, it's not
hard to see why it has become so popular with American singles and
singles around the world. 4 stars.
Singles Customer Testimonials
||Thanks to your website I am now married.
Bryant saw my profile last year and just decided to email me. It
took me a while to respond since I was about to give up on this
online dating stuff. I had met a few guys, and I was disappointed,
but finally decided to respond to him. I figured, what do I have
to lose, and thank God, I did. We got married on July 10th, 2004,
and believe me, my daughters and family couldn't be any happier
Bryant first wrote to me on June 8th of last year, and it took
me until June 13th to reply. We both live in the Kissimmee, Florida
area, so we decided to meet in person. But, like always, meeting
a stranger is dangerous, so we met in a public area (restaurant).
We really enjoyed our date and decided to hang out again the next
day. It was a slow process between us, but within time, we both
realized that we had fallen in love with each other and that we
were good for one another.
We dated for about 5 months when we both decided that it was time
to meet each others family. Bryant spent Thanksgiving last year
with my family, and to my surprise, everyone took a liking to him.
They really welcomed him to our family. When I met his family, it
was the same. We had a party at my house so both sides of the family
could meet, and they all had a blast. It felt so right that, right
after that, he asked me to be his wife.
We are both so happy and grateful to your website. Just when I
was about to give up. Like I said before, thank God I didn't give
Once again THANKS! And people don't give up. It really works!
Yvette and Bryant
I am sorry that it has taken me so long to reply, but things have
been VERY busy here! Danny and I are still doing WONDERFUL! We bought
a house and moved in on Halloween...and we are getting married on
New Year's Eve!!
To give a quick background, Dan and I went to school together up
until the 9th grade until he moved. We never talked, just knew of
each other. When I joined your site in February, it was more of
just a looking around thing...didn't really plan on anything serious.
I was just looking for someone to have a good time with.
We both saw each other's profiles and wondered if we knew each
other since we are from a small town. We were very surprised when
we found out we were in the same grade together!! We chatted online
and on the phone for a couple weeks and then got together with my
kids for a movie and pizza night. We have been together ever since.
Dan has made me extremely happy. He is wonderful to me and my kids.
My husband passed away last year from cancer, and Danny has really
filled our lives with joy once more.
Thank you to your site. Keep up the good work.
Aimee and Dan
I found the man of my dreams, or should I say, he found me. He's really
a gentleman, and I mean "A GENTLEMAN." I am so very happy
now. I owe it to AmericanSingles.com and to God for pointing me in
the right direction, to my lover. We had long emails with each other.
Then soon after, we talked on the phone. WOW! What a voice! I loved
it! We decided to meet each other, and for next weekend, I flew to
him in Michigan. It was love at first sight. He lived 2 hours away
by plane... I didn't think it could work out. I didn't like the distance
between us. Before my very eyes, I was falling in love. And the distance
didn't matter. We walked around together, talked, laughed, joked,
I met his mom and dad.
To make a long story short, he asked me to marry him at midnight of
New Year 2000. That night he went down on his knees and asked me to
marry him. I said, "YES." I have never been happier and
never knew I could have these feelings for someone. I thought they
existed only in dreams or movies, but I have it all now!
My parents are very happy for us and wish us a life of only love and
conjoined happiness. We are going to set a wedding date soon and just
want everyone to know that someone is out there for you. Just open
your eyes and your heart and leave the rest to God. They will be there.
I'm very grateful for your help!!! Thank You So Much AmericanSingles.com!!!!
