I've made so many great connections! I've tried several sites and this is by far the best I think that I've found!

Would be great if we could have other payment methods for premium features. Paypal is something I do not trust at all.

its a fun site with like minded people the only down side is that you have limited credits and have to pay for a beter version of the site.

A rare place in this world to find people to talk to without a tons of ads. And i find the simplicity of the site really helps too.

I find it very hard to make friends especially in person. This site has really helped me expand my circle. It really helps to be able to have regular conversations with people but also there to be an understanding that I can't always be on here. I also really appreciate the ability to filter out who can and can't search for you in those sort of safety features it makes me feel really secure using this site.
