We launched in August 1999 and here we are, celebrating our tenth anniversary.
All of those sites that were on our list ten years ago have now disappeared off the Internet. People don't like to pay for dating and they like even less to be "tricked" into joining a pay site when it is advertised as free.
Unlike other 100% free dating sites we actually respect our members and don't treat them like "eyeballs" (that's the advertising-speak for somebody who could potentially click on an ad).
Other sites are run with just one thing in mind - getting you to click ads.
We decline about 90% of all new applications on the basis that they do not meet our quality criteria.
We hand-check every new member who comes onto the site to ensure they are not a previously-identified low quality person.
You can use our search, messaging, Conversations (for social dating), photos, etc etc completely free.
To put our money where our mouth is we joined the ABIA (Association of British Introduction Agencies) in 2004 and we were the very first online dating site to be accepted into this prestigious organisation. It's super casual and no one will puke on your shoes after.19. Maybe they're your friends, maybe they're mutual friends. Gorgeous water, lots of sun, and both of you are kind of naked! These points will give you an idea of how trusted the person is and how they have interacted with other members.Midsummer's Eve pioneered this system and we continue to be at the forefront of developing trust systems within online communities.Of the few that make it through these tests, we constantly monitor and check their activity, awarding "membership points" as they gain trust in our community.As you search the site you'll notice membership points on members' profiles.We are very pleased to welcome to you to Midsummer's Eve, the original 100% free online dating site. It's autumn, it's romantic, and then, at the end, you get to use knives in a fun way! On the other hand we have the advantage of being totally upfront.Midsummer's Eve has always been, and always will be, a 100% free dating site.
