We here at Stuzz are always on the lookout for new sites on the web designed to help you be lucky in love. The eternal search for peace, love and harmony is a worthy cause as the number of hours I’ve spent searching is nothing in comparison to the time it takes for the single person to scout through profiles on numerous sites! Imagine my excitement when I heard about datemy.co.uk, an online dating site where I can do the matchmaking for my nearest and dearest. This is exactly what I’ve been waiting for, no longer am I just a shoulder to cry on or a font of useless dating advice, now I can be queen of the matchmakers, I can actually look at the hopeful daters and see who I think would best suit my friends or family.

Datemy, a revolution in online dating?

How Datemy dating site works:

As a matchmaker I can register with www.datemy.co.uk for free, all that’s needed is an email address and password, very easy. Next is the profile building for your nominated single. A list of simple questions that are designed to give an insight into their personality.

This stage actually took me much longer than I anticipated. Suddenly the future of my friends was in my hands, I wanted to make sure I did them justice. I realised at this stage that I didn’t know my friends as well as I thought I did so although there are only a handful of questions I was easily stumped. I know that the lovely Prisqua likes to bake cakes and doughnuts for everyone all of the time but does that make it her favourite food? If I say that her weakness is that she’s bossy will that turn people away? I was beginning to see how the single population can get themselves in a twist over profile writing, and I cannot stress enough how simple this format is to use. That is another point to consider, the information on the profiles at datemy is so limited that the final choice is based on looks, 3 words describing a personality will never be enough to enable a choice so looks it is. That’s absolutely fine, the age old debate of instant attraction lives on and we here at Stuzz are no strangers to stressing the importance of photos to sell yourself on profiles! Again it was something that left me in a cold sweat though, I had to make sure the picture I chose for their profile was just right, remembering all of those lessons Stuzz has taught me. So there were no pets, cars or children in the pictures, my job was nearly done. Click the button and my nomination was complete.

Datemy dating site: What happens next…

An email is sent to the people you have created a profile for, so make sure you’re prearmed with that when you fill out their profile. They then get to see your handy work and give consent to be registered as a single person on datemy.co.uk. Meanwhile the matchmaker can be looking through potential matches and suggesting some happy likelys.

In theory all I do is select the people I think would most likely be a match for my friends and click the button to let their matchmaker know. The magic will happen and a date will be had if our singles like the handy work done on their behalf. Absolutely brilliant, enforced single status will be eradicated within 5 years!

Datemy: The good

I absolutely love the concept of this site. Every one wants to see their loved ones happy and this is a fun proactive way to achieve that.

  • There are only a few questions to complete so signing up should be easy and quick.
  • You can sign multiple singles up with your own login account, so you really can be queen of the matchmakers.
  • The presentation of the site is bright and easy to navigate through.
  • A real database filled with genuine people.

The story of how the dating site came to be is beautiful, datemy.co.uk and Stuzz.com have a lot in common in terms of philosophy.

Datemy: The bad

Unfortunately I had to register using my laptop as I was unable to input numbers (date of birth needed for registration) on the mobile web site, not a major issue but an inconvenience at that time.

Another glitch problem I encountered was not being able to save the photo on upload as I’d not moved the page up enough beforehand. The real issue being that when you click off the page for any reason all data is lost, it took me 3 attempts to sign up one friend and I’m still trying with the other. It hasn’t deterred me though!

Datemy.co.uk appears to be in its infancy, the database is small so date matches are hard to make. That does spin a positive twist on the site, the database is full of real people looking for a match.

When choosing matches I was unsure what the buttons meant, who would see that I’d pulled their profile out as I didn’t want to.give false hope to a potential if they were instantly dismissed by my friends!

In theory all I do is select the people I think would most likely be a match for my friends and click the button to let their matchmaker know. The magic will happen and a date will be had if our singles like the handy work done on their behalf. Absolutely brilliant, enforced single status will be eradicated within 5 years!

I feel that I need to add a few words as I really am looking forward to continuing to use this site. The scoring system doesn’t do datemy justice as it is a fledgling site. I would strongly urge users of the site to add their own scores using the table above to help show its improvement. I also hope the team at datemy will encourage their users to visit Stuzz.com to add their thoughts to the rating. The datemy team are also good for banter on Twitter which enhances the whole experience. Get registering those singletons!
