Mainly red and white color
scheme. Fast loading with a simple and user friendly interface.
Profiles are simple but informative, with photo albums which store
up to ten photos, as well as 1 to 6 video messages.
Profiles are accessible to all users but private photos and videos
are only available to paying members. Profile pictures are of a
reasonable size , however, the video messages may be of poor quality
and can be a bit jumpy at times.
Overall well laid out and easy to navigate, the instant messaging
system is very easily operated and offers an instant notification
when a message is received.
This section of the lavalife

range of facilities, however it is well laid out and no matter what

What we liked about the site:
Overall the site is very
well laid out, and easy to navigate.
It offers a very simple and visual way to meet and choose a partner
of your choice. The site also has one noteworthy great facility,
you can instantly scroll through profile photos by an additional
window without actually having to enter the profile itself. Which
What we didn't like about the site:
main criticism is that it doesn’t seem to offer a direct and
interactive form of chat. You only seem to be able to communicate
through messaging. It has everything else so if a chat room isn't
paramount to your needs, give it a try.
I would only give this
site a 3 star rating as it lacks chat room facilities and to gain
any real time with the instant messenger you have to pay. However,
the site is really well laid out and very user friendly, even though
its range of facilities are not very large compared to other sites
of this orientation.
It's highly recommend to visit this site if you're just starting
out in online dating as it offers a safe and simple way of meeting

thank you Manline!
I met Peter on your site pratically one year to the day. later,
we met in person and quickly developed a chemistry. In fact, we

dreams....thanks to you guys too.

wonderful, beautiful, amazing man on your website.... I was just
about to give up too!
What a weekend
Just got back from what I can truly say was the hottest weekend
of my life. We recently met on Manline and I can't begin to desrcibe
to you how good it's been since. Thought I'd let you know you're
Kudos to you
We both wanted to send a quick thanks your way for letting our paths
cross. It happened about 6 months ago on Manline. I was literally
seconds away from logging off when I got Michael's message. We chatted,
met, one date led to the next, and here we are today, still in bliss!
Thanks so much,
Tim & Michael
Wow, that was simple. Just got on Manline a few weeks ago and I've
already met and hooked up with a few great guys, and one who I think
might be a potential keeper... I'll let you know how it goes!
