The profile at Singles Net is one of the most basic and incomprehensive profiles we have found at any dating site. The page will ask you for some basic information on your preferences. They will request your basic physical attributes, interests, and education level. Once you have finished this, you are done. They will never ask about the type of person you are looking for; if you want someone different than yourself, you should probably visit another dating service.

The problem with this profile arises when you note that does not allow for custom searches; the only way to acquire results is to search according to the criteria you have included about yourself in your profile. So, if you would like to change your search criteria to receive different variety of results, edit your profile and change some of your own attributes.

Their membership fees are lower than their competitors,' but they also offer much less with that membership. Without an advanced search feature, or any true search feature in general, it is difficult to browse through a variety of the profiles even as a paid member.
