IdealNewLove provides a free dating service for singles looking for dates in their local area. The site offers picture personals, free email, a bookmarking feature, as well as a member's forum and dating tips.
IdealNewLove is a straightforward dating website providing free access to all of its services. It's open to people living anywhere in the world, however members are predominantly from the United States. To join the site, simply choose a username; provide your location and a valid email address. The additional questions can be skipped until later or you can fill them in as you go. Once complete, you're taken directly to the search form. The basic search will allow you to choose a preferred location, age range and gender. Additional options are available by clicking the “advanced search”.
Once you've entered your search settings you'll be shown a list of matching members, and upon clicking a photo in the list, you'll be shown the full profile where it's possible to add the person to your favorites list (bookmarks), or to send them an email. The site doesn't offer a flirt (ice-breaker) link, or a block facility to prohibit unwanted members from making contact.
IdealNewLove has a blog section, as well as a forum where members are invited to post suggestions and ideas concerning the site.
