No other site in Australia gets your friends or family involved in setting up your online dating profile. DateMyFriend is more like a virtual ‘wingman’who knows you well and can probably describe you better than you can describe yourself. We encourage honesty and integrity and have steps in place to ensure all site users are as genuine as possible. This is a fun alternative to other dating websites and at a better price!
Yes! Only one friend can write your main profile description but you can ask for up to 10 other friends for a review. This is a small statement about your personality and/or friendship that will help back up your main description and help other users get to know you better. Once you approve them they will be visible on your profile and you are free to delete and replace what reviews you wish to be included.
People can get busy with their own lives but don’t worry, you can easily ask someone else to write your description for you. Just go to ‘Account & Profile’ then ‘Send a Reminder’to delete your original request. You will then be prompted to send off a replacement request to another friend. We recommend, of course, that you let your first friend know you’re asking someone else to complete your profileas you’re keen to get started. Just remember whilst you can have up to 10 ‘Friend Reviews ’visible on your profile, you can only have one main Friend Description.
Don’t worry! You will be able to request an amendment from your friend if you’re not completely happy with what they’ve written. It won’t go live on the site until you are happy. It’s important to remember DateMyFriend wants the information provided about you to be authentic and original from your friends perspective. However, we also know how important it is for you to be happy with your description. While you do have the opportunity to request changes we want you to remember DateMyFriend is all about someone else describing you. If you have had too much influence on what your friend has written about you, then it's no longer truly the friends description.

Whilst DateMyFriend is building our community, all activity on our site is free. Once we introduce a small subscription fee, the difference between a member and a subscriber will be the following:
Members can sign up anytime for FREE and can:
Once you have become a Subscriber you can:
Please note: If you're subscribed but your profile is incomplete, you will not be allowed to reply to any messages until you complete your profile.
DateMyFriend allows a profile to have up to 20 photos (including your main profile photo and the photo a friend may have uploaded). Please note all photos need to be approved by the DateMyFriend team and will be approved promptly. Try to make sure your photos do a good job of representing you as an individual and having a variety of photos always help to present a personality and what someone might like to do. Photos can be a great conversation starter and show where there may be common interests. Breaking the ice can also be a lot easier if there are photos to refer to.
Photos can be uploaded in the following formats; jpg, jpeg, gif or png. It's better to upload good size photos so you look your best on all fronts. If a photo is in the right format and there are still issues uploading, it could be trouble with the size of the photo. We can try and help where possible so send us an email with the photo to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll see what we can do to help. Remember to include the registered email address so we know we're uploading the photo onto the right profile!
Videos are becoming more and more popular in social media and can really help to represent who you are and what you want in a relationship. Again, first impressions are important and as a photo can speak a thousand words, so can a video! So it's important you upload a good quality video, be authentic and relaxed (as hard as that is sometimes!). We recommend your video is no longer than 30 seconds (it is said that Goldfish now have longer attention spans than humans so you have between half a second and 5 seconds to capture someone's attention!). Maximum file size is 20MB. Ensure you include in your video a little about you, what you are looking for in a relationship and what makes you tick. A smile also goes a long way to a good impression and try to avoid a poorly lit video. Your video needs to show you at your best so don't be afraid to load one and most importantly be yourself! Copyrighted videos, video's with children or videos showing guns or knives are not permitted and will be removed from your profile by one of our team.
Any changes to your profile can be made through your ‘Account & Profile’or ‘Edit Profile’ links which are found on your logged in Home page.
We don’t want people to hide behind made up silly usernames that don’t always accurately represent someone and can sometimes represent you in a bad light. DateMyFriend is about honesty and integrity and finding a partner isn’t a game. So being upfront and honest in the ‘name department’ is a good start.
At any time, singles can change their response, photos, personal data (such as profession, location, smoking etc.), and the data about the partner they are seeking (e.g. preferred age etc.). Once you are logged in follow the ‘Account & Profile’ or ‘Edit profile’ links to make any changes.
Every member has the opportunity to ‘Favourite’ a profile of someone they like. In doing so you are subtly letting this person know you’re interested. They will be sent a message that you like them and then if you’re lucky they may ‘Favourite’ you too!
No! This function is for your reference only. If you find a profile you like but you’re not sure you want to let them know yet then you can ‘bookmark’ their profile in your ‘Looks Interesting’ list. The candidate will only be messaged that someone likes them. You will remain anonymous until you move them into your ‘Favourites’ list.
No, it's completely anonymous so only you can see who you've moved into this list. Once you 'block' a single then they will no longer be able to view your profile and you will not show up in any of the searches. So they won't be able to add you to their 'Favourites' or 'Looks Interesting' lists. Their profile will no longer appear in your searches either, unless you 'Unblock' their profile.
If you're a Friend of a Single then when you 'block' a profile it will no longer appear in your searches.
People can hide their profile for a while if they’re taking a break or they could’ve removed their profile altogether. If you would like to follow this up further please contact us at email@example.com and we'll be glad to help.
All messages that are sent will be visible in the receivers Inbox. Depending on the users preferences, they will receive an email notification or when they next log in to DateMyFriend they will see they have a new message in their Inbox.
If you’re single and browsing through profiles, when you see someone you like then you can add them to your Favourites or Looks Interesting list. Anyone you add to your Favourites list will be notified you like them and you will then appear in their Who likes you list. If you’re not sure how much you like someone’s profile but would like to ‘bookmark’ them for later then you can add them to your Looks Interesting list. This is private and can only be seen by you. The person will be notified someone likes them but your identity will remain anonymous until you move them into your Favourites list.
Once you've found a potential date and would like to make contact, just follow the ‘Send a message’ link to write them an email. They will only be able to reply properly if they have also subscribed to DateMyFriend.
