Midsummer's Eve is a dating service for people living in the United Kingdom. They've been around for some time, since 1999 to be exact. You'll need to create a detailed profile before you can message others on the site.
They don't have a huge number of participants; however those who are there do have quite in-depth and interesting profiles. As a joining member you must answer several pages of questions and provide details about your physical appearance, lifestyle, and relationship type sought.
As well as the usual questions, there are more obscure questions, such as “in what period you'd like to live” or “name someone famous you'd like to have a dinner-date with”. Unfortunately it's necessary to fully-complete the lengthy profile and upload a photo before one can fully participate in the site.
Is it Free?
Although they advertise themselves as being “free” on the front page, this isn't strictly true. While non-paying members can use the site to some extent, browse, send winks and send email messages (up to a certain quota), other privileges such as viewing full-size photos, and having access to the matchmaking and viewing tools, are only available to subscribers. Monthly subscriptions start at £9.99.
The site offers a surprisingly rich set of features that include sophisticated searches and checking who's visited your profile, voice greetings, finding out who's tagged your profile (there are several options, gorgeous, bonkers, a genius etc), who's saved your profile on their favorites list. Local meetings and events are also advertised on the site.
