What to do when online dating sites don't work for me (And what you can do about it)

Like many people looking for that special someone you probably spend countless hours every week clicking through profiles and messaging members on dating sites and apps.  You get a response every now and again, but rarely from anyone, you actually want to connect with.

 On average people spend 6 hours a week looking at profiles, then another 7 hours sending out messages. That adds up to around 13 hours, all living in hope that they will actually meet someone!  Internet dating seems more like a part-time job rather than a chance to meet that special person.

Each dating site will have their own matching algorithm - they need to if they have a growing user base.  How dating sites match users depends on what they believe or have (in their eyes) proved to be the recipe for a successful relationship.  After all, why would people waste their time joining a site if they didn’t want to meet someone!

One question that may be pertinent to ask yourself is, do you have more success meeting someone if you pay a monthly subscription rather than joining a free site? Unfortunately, there is no guarantee either way.  Some people believe that when you pay a monthly subscription you' buy-in' to the process and have shown a true commitment to meet someone.  However, the opposite can be true.  When you pay a monthly subscription it’s a bit like a gym membership insofar as whether you go to the gym once in a blue moon or you attend the gym regularly you pay the same subscription.  Over time apathy can take over and you may feel less optimistic about meeting someone.

So what is the answer? has a fresh approach to finding lasting love.  This dating site brings romance to today's time-poor, technology-driven singletons.  Your name (And that of a potential partner) carries far more relevance than you realise when it comes to forming a lasting relationship.  There are 64 personality types so each name has traits of its own that will either modify, balance or clash with other people's names.  So when it comes to relationships, we are compatible with some people but not with others. This site is currently exclusive to London and matches members with potential partners through a compatibility system based on their full name.  There is no monthly subscription or joining fee and you simply pay for the people you want to connect with and they want to connect with you, this gives you more control as you can accept or decline connection requests. Matches are generated on a daily basis and you will be notified by email directly to your inbox.  Love by Name does all the hard work for you, so you don't have to spend hours writing your profile.  More love, the first time!
