A dating service that offers matchmaking, profile searches, and emailing to its subscribers. It's free to join 12Meet but if you want to contact others you'll need to upgrade. There's a two-way matching tool that matches other users against your preferences as well as you against theirs.
It is open to anyone though most members are in the United States. Those looking at 12Meet might recognize the layout since it uses a dating site template from the “The Dating Lab” which also provides its services to several well known brands.
While it's possible to join the site for free, to create a profile, and to search for other members, contacting other people requires upgrading to a paid membership plan. Creating a good profile can take some time as there's several different sections to fill out.
You can also set preferences for your ideal match, and doing so will ensure that you receive good quality results when you use the matching search feature. You can also choose to remove matches that don't have a profile picture.
On choosing the “matches” option under the find tab, you'll be presented with members who most closely match your preferences. A two-way match score will be displayed on their profile, which tells you how well you match their preferences. You can customize the list by removing those you don't like and you won't be shown their profile again.
Overall 12meet is a decent site. The lower numbers compared to eHarmony and Match.com mean some won't find enough suitable matches.
