Theloveclub is a dating and networking site for Australian singles of all ages. It's free to join as a trial user. Once registered, you can search for friends, dates, true love or just hang out with other Australians who share your interests.
The loveclub is the new name for aussiematchmaker.com.au. It's been around for a while but has a totally new look now. At it's heart it's a meeting hub for Australia's singles looking to find love, or at least sexual fulfilment, online.
Loveclub covers a number of demographics. Right up from young singles of ages 18 to 30, to mature singles between the ages of 30 and 50. It also has seniors above the age of 50, looking to light the sunset of their life with the golden hues of romance and love.
Loveclub doesn't yet have the numbers that eHarmony.com.au or RSVP boasts.
What it does have is a strong sense of uniqueness, with many tips and suggestions for first-time users. There is even an adult chat room, for users who are interested in discussing and exploring the sexual side of romance right off the bat.
With just 9,000 users, it can be a challenge to find someone desirable and attractive in your part of Australia. They say there are typically 100 or more users online and using the site at any given time, which gives a few opportunities for real-time chats.
To help matchmaking, the site sponsors social events set in the "real world," such as boat cruise parties and speed dating encounters. There are usually several sponsored events happening each week, which keeps users checking back often. This makes it feel a bit like a social club rather than a dating service. Basic membership is free, which has encouraged the site to grow.
The Low Down...
Theloveclub is an attractive, friendly website with a brand new look. If you can get past the smaller member pool it may be a good choice. The site only accepts members living in Australia or New Zealand at the present time.
