Who Is It For/Demographics?
The name gives you a pretty good idea of what Love Again is all about, right?
This is a website primarily for people who have been through a breakup or a divorce.
It’s often so difficult for individuals who have suffered through this kind of emotional trauma to be able to commit themselves to someone else again.
That’s because they fear the pain and emotional hurt another breakup could bring.
So to spare themselves that, they simply choose to remain single and do not pin their hopes on another partner providing what they need emotionally and physically.
But Love Again helps to change that.
It’s a website that brings people that have gone through these situations together, to help them a partner that understands the trauma that they been through.
That’s because they would have gone through something similar in their breakup or divorce.
That’s one of the main groups that Love Again is aimed at but it’s not the only one.
According to Love Again, it’s open to singles, people who are widowed and over-40s.
Also, Love Again is open to everyone, so if you are a member of the lesbian or gay community, you are free to make a profile in your quest for love.
How many users does Love Again have?
On the Love Again landing page, there is no mention of just how many users the site has.
But through some extensive research online, there are claims that this dating site has so far had around two million people sign up and register for profiles.
So that’s a pretty good base to start off with, that’s for sure.
Trying to find a further breakdown of numbers proved difficult but I can say that during my time trying out the site, it was pretty busy.
Also, search returns for my location brought up a number of profiles that were worth following up.
In terms of age ranges, the user base on Love Again is on the older side.
As it’s a site aimed at older people and those who are looking for love again, most of the users are from 40 and upwards.
Ease of Use
Let me take you through the registration process for Love Again.
The registration page first has you providing the following information:
- Who you are and what you are looking for (for example, a man looking for a woman)
- Your age
- Your email address
- A password for your account
Make sure your email is a valid one because as an extra layer of security, Love Again will send you a verification password and you need to click on a return link.
Your Love Again profile
Love Again then takes you to your profile where you can fill in a few more bits of information or skip it and do it later.
I suggest you get it done.
It takes just a couple of minutes to finish it all.
The information you need to provide here is:
- Screen name
- Status (140 characters)
- Body type
- Hair color
You will also need to upload a profile picture.
That’s just the basics.
To complete your profile, you will need to click on your profile picture and provide the following information.
- Your eye color
- If you have any tattoos
- If you have any piercings
- If you drink or smoke
- Your income
- Your education
- Your weight
- Your height
- If you have children
- Your living situation
- Your religion
Of course, it’s not necessary to provide this if you don’t want to.
But remember, people use these categories as search filters, so you might be missing out on the perfect matchup if you don’t.
That’s why I always make sure that no matter what dating site I sign up for, my profile is completed 100%.
Navigating the Love Again site
The first thing you will notice about Love Again is that you are presented with potential matchups from the get-go.
Also, it has a simple design that’s easy to understand and makes finding your way around a breeze.
Below are the menus that you will use to navigate the site:
You will find the following:
- Search: If you want to look beyond the matchups that Love Again presents to you, you can launch your own searches here.
- Like Gallery: This takes you through user profiles that meet your requirements and you can either like them or move on to the next based on their profile picture. Most dating sites have similar roulette-styled matchup games these days.
- Messages (chat bubble symbol): Messages that you’ve sent to others as well as those you have received can be found here.
- Notifications (bell symbol): Important notifications will be found here. For example, if someone likes your profile, you will receive a notification.
- Profile: Other than editing your profile here, you can find other menus as well including settings, a help menu and more.
You will also notice a quick search bar that can be found under these menus.
Here you can launch searches based on a few parameters:
- Age range
But you also have access to more filters that you can add or remove.
These advanced search filters are free for regular users to use.
Normally, this type of thing is a member-only feature, but not at Love Again.
These filters are based on user profiles and include:
- Tattoos and piercing
- Eye and hair color
- Body type
- Sexual orientation
The overall design of Love Again is pleasing to the eye and let’s be honest they chose a perfect color scheme with blue and white.
What I also like is that the users and your potential matchups are always at the forefront of everything.
And that’s the way it should be because ultimately, you are looking for someone, that’s why you are making use of the site.
Once you’ve had a look around the site and figured out how it all works, you have a couple of ways of hopefully finding that perfect matchup.
The first is obviously to look through the matchups that the site suggests.
Don’t discount that.
Why I say that is while they may not all be in your specified age range (if it was pretty narrow), they will all be near you in terms of location.
I don’t know about you but the first thing that I check about a matchup is their location.
I never want to have to travel too far.
So take a look through and make note of those that might be worth contacting.
Making searches on Love Again
The second way you are going to go about finding matchups is by launching a search of your own.
And believe me, this you will do time and time again.
I’ve already talked about the search bar as well as the search menu that you will use to launch your searches.
Always remember that you can adjust the search filters as well.
It’s a balancing act, however.
Too many filters will cut down on your returns.
So unless they are non-negotiable, rather leave filters out to widen the field.
If you click on the home page, you will also notice that there are a few other clickable search options below the search bar.
And you can use these to search as well.
- All members (using the basic filters when you registered)
- Online now (again using the basic filters but members who are online at the moment)
- New members (search any new members who have joined up on the site using your basic filters)
You can also sort these returns in the following ways:
- By popularity
- When they were last active
- Distance from you
- Their age
So when you’ve found someone, how do you go about messaging them?
Making contact on Love Again
If you click on another user’s profile, you will see that you can add them to your favorites or “like” them.
If you “like” them, they will receive a notification that you have.
Sure, that goes some way to show your intentions that maybe you want to get to know them better, but ultimately, you need to message them in some way.
You will easily notice the chat icon on a user’s profile.
And click on it and you will see that you can type them a message.
But there something at the bottom of the screen that will get you frustrated.
That’s because on Love Again, sending unlimited messages is only so a member can do.
As a regular user, you can send just five messages.
And that’s not five messages per person you’d like to chat to, that’s five messages in total.
When you are done, that’s it.
You cannot message anymore.
So yes, if you want to make a success of the site, you are going to have to look into membership options.
These are the key features you can expect for a paying membership on Love Again.
1. Unlimited messaging
No matter what the dating service, for me, the key member feature is messaging.
And it always will be.
At least Love Again lets you see how the messaging system works by allowing you to send free messages.
It might only be five but at least you can see how to message someone and reply if they message back.
Membership provides you with the ability to send unlimited messages.
Just remember, if you send to a regular user who doesn’t have a membership, if they have used up their five free messages, they can’t reply.
2. Flirt cast
A flirt cast is the opportunity to get your profile out there.
You can write a message and then broadcast it to all those people who meet your initial requirements.
You can do this once every day and it’s a great way to promote your profile, that’s for sure.
3. “Looking for” information
Knowing what a potential matchup is expecting from a relationship is key.
For example, you may be looking for long-term love and they just want a friend they can chat to.
As a member, you can see exactly what they are using the site for.
And if it doesn’t meet your expectations, you need not waste your time contacting that person.
4. More search filters
While Love Again has a fair amount of search filters for regular users, there is even more if you are a member of the site.
If you are someone that likes to find matchups that are very specific then that will appeal to you.
5. See large photos
Members can not only see all the photos that other users post, but they can also see them in their full glory.
That means all photos are showing in full definition and size, not the small sizes that regular users see them in.
6. Site support
If you have any troubles or questions as a member of Love Again, you have access to excellent site support.
7. Photo and video sharing
While in a chat with another user, you are able to share photos as well as videos with them.
While there are some interesting features for members of Love Again, there is nothing spectacular to write home about.
If I had to choose my two favorites it would be unlimited messaging and added search parameters.
Those are two things that are invaluable on a dating site, that’s for sure.
But the question is then, how much will membership to this site cost you and what options do you have?
Well, the good news is that you can try the site via a three-day trial.
If you are unsure if the key features are worth it, then this is the best way to go about it, that’s for sure.
There are also one-month, three-month and six-month membership options.
Here’s a breakdown:
- 3-day membership – $3.15 ($1.05 per day )
- 1-month membership – $24.99
- 3-month membership – $45.00 ($14.99 per month)
- 6-month membership – $72.00 ($11.99 per month)
While the features are spectacular, membership pricing is spot on I think.
I’ve seen dating sites with similar key features ask over $30 for a one-month membership option.
$24.99 is perfectly priced.
Of course, if you are going to use the site for longer than a month, you could immediately opt for a longer membership, perhaps three months or even six months.
And if you sign up for a trial offer, after three days, you will have a very good idea as to whether this is the kind of site that you are going to find what you are looking for.
Conclusion and Overall Rating
There is no doubt in my mind that Love Again is a dating site that has a lot to offer.
It’s aimed at people that have been hurt in love before as well as an older target market that’s never quite managed to find love.
But in reality, you find all kinds of users on the site.
To use the site effectively, you need to have a membership.
That’s because membership will allow you to send unlimited messages.
There are other features, but they aren’t that impressive.
Luckily, membership is very well priced and if you want to try the site, you can sign up for the three-day trial which is something I would encourage.
So let’s get to my rating for Love Again.
Today, I am scoring it 3.75 out of 5.
