ConnectingSingles – Meet by Choice, Not by Chance

What is ConnectingSingles all about?

ConnectingSingles is a 100% free community with loads of quality features to help you connect with friends worldwide. Have you been surfing the web because you're single now and at a loss looking for a safe and comfortable place to connect with others? We understand what you're going through, as we've all gone through this. It's hard because there are so many sites out there and you can waste a lot of time signing up and finding your way around only to find it isn't right for you, or you have been misled about costs and features. Well, we're glad you're here and, after we tell you a little about ConnectingSingles, we hope you will decide to Join the Group and feel at home here.

ConnectingSingles is all about you. First off, the site is exactly as advertised, totally 100% free to use, with loads of free features and high quality, easy to use design. Our goal is to make our members look their best and give them all the features they need and all the opportunities possible to get acquainted and connect. We all have the dream of joining up, immediately finding 'The One', and living happily ever after. But realistically it takes time and patience to find that someone who is perfect for you. In the meantime, we would also like to help you meet new friends and enjoy your search. Besides searching for that special person, there are lots of things to do here and lots of ways to get to know others.

YOUR OWN SITE PAGE. As a member you will have your own site page here. From your CS site page you can post photos, polls, your favorite videos, blog, or create ecards. Your friends can be added and your fans displayed. And you will have your own admin page to manage it.

Your site on CS is your place where friends and members can come to view all these items, to contact you, send you flowers, rate your photos and leave you comments, shouts, and testimonials.

Your profile will also be listed on the community’s site pages available for a variety of searches. All CS features have been designed to help connect members here. Every time you use these features, post in the forum, write in your blog, create an ecard or a poll, comment on a video, rate someone’s photo, view a profile, or add a Friend, you will bring attention to your site page and bring mail to your inbox. The more features you use, the more exposure you will have to members searching for someone just like you.

Each one of us is a package... not just a photo, and so much more than the personal ad we write to make ourselves look good to browsing members. The more you get to know about a member, the more help you’ll have in making a decision of whether to take a new friendship further, to meet up, and to spend more time with them.

FORUMS are a great place to get to know members, make friends from all over the world, and to debate issues from sex and dating to politics and current events. If you don’t find a thread that interests you, start one that does. Diversity brings us together here, but it also provides cause for lively often very heated debate. So enter the forums with tolerance and an open mind.

BLOGS are a great place to express yourself, impart words of wisdom from lessons you've learned, try out a poem you wrote, or just write about your day. It allows members to get to know another side of you that may not show in your profile or forum posts.

RATE PHOTOS is a fun, interesting way to view a lot of members and find someone who attracts you. The goal of Rate Photos is to connect members who might not otherwise find each other through other search methods. You can leave comments for the photos and add members to your Favorites List to go back and send mail, flowers or a card to later. You can simply rate random members’ photos, or you can specify a certain age group and whether you want to rate men or women. You can also rate the photos of a particular member by visiting their CS site page and rate and leave comments for them there. You will have many options regarding rating of your own photos.

ECARDS Once you get to know some members better, you may want to send them a CS eCard. You can also use the Birthday List to send cards to members celebrating their special day. Many singles are alone on birthdays and holidays, and receiving a card from another member can be a bright spot on an otherwise lonely day. You can either choose a card and customize it for your occasion, or you can create a card of your own and add one of hundreds of great music choices that Connecting Singles provides. If you’re creative at all, you’ll love this feature!

FLOWERS Everyone loves to receive flowers. Visit the ConnectingSingles Flower Shop and ‘pick’ a flower and either choose a greeting from the list or write one of your own. Flowers are a quick, easy way to show interest and invite response if the feeling turns out to be mutual.

CHAT and IM ConnectingSingles has both public chat and IM (instant messenger). Chat with up to 25 members at a time in an existing room, create your own chat room, meet new friends, or invite a group to meet at a given time. You can also IM one-on-one with members. To find members to chat with, click Online Now in the top menu bar for members who are online now who may be available for chatting, then click the green IM link on their profile.

POLLS are an interesting way to survey for the opinions of others on a topic of your choice, and also to get acquainted with other members through discussion of their opinions and poll results. Vote on a wide variety of poll topics or post a poll question of your own. Two poll options are available: create a poll that will appear in a forum thread for discussion and comments by forum members, or create a poll in the Polls area where members can vote and leave comments there.

VIDEOS ConnectingSingles members have posted some great videos for you to view and comment on. Do you have a favorite video or have you posted one of your own on YouTube? Videos you post will appear on your profile site page and members can watch and comment on them there.

BIRTHDAYS Members with birthdays this week appear on the Connecting Singles Birthday list. Send them a card. It's another way to connect with members here. You don't have to know them to send a greeting. Check the list and use it as an opportunity to send an eCard or flower; or to send a Birthday message to a member on your Friends list, someone you have debated with in the forum, or someone new who interests you. Singles are often alone on birthdays and holidays and a surprise greeting may be a cool way to brighten their day, or it may be the start of a great connection. Creating eCards is fun and totally free to do.

WHO'S VIEWED ME Have you ever been at a social gathering, party or pub, looked across the room and caught the eye of someone who is attractive to you... and who is also looking at you? Wow! For a single moment, sparks fly. What next? Will either of you make the first move? Or will the moment and opportunity be lost because you're both too shy or too busy to do anything about it or take it any further. Who's Viewed me is similar. It's like virtual eye contact. When you use the list, it allows others to see you have enough interest to check out their CS Site page, and it shows you who has viewed yours. It can be like a friendly or a romantic glance from across the room and present the opportunity for one of you to respond and take the first step to show mutual interest... maybe just a quick note or flower to say 'Hey I see you viewed my site...wanna chat?' The list can also be used to measure the effectiveness of a new photo you add or change you make to your site page. Who's Viewed Me is another great tool to connect and it's totally free to use.

GET-TOGETHERS Attend a get-together or help plan one. This is a great way to get better acquainted with members you’ve met on ConnectingSingles and it’s also a great excuse to travel to a place you may not have had the chance to visit alone. Check out Get-Together threads in the forum and join the discussion by members planning to attend.

GAMES Are you a gameplayer? Play cool free online games at ConnectingSingles. Compete against other members for high scores in the singleplayer games, or invite a member or a group to meet and play Pool, Spades, Checkers or others in the multiplayer games. All games are flash-based online games, there is nothing to download or install.

POETRY CORNER Do you have a passion for poetry? The CS Poet’s Corner is a great place to post poems you’ve written and get feedback from a supportive group of writers there. Entering and formatting your poems is fun and creative with your choice of font, background color, border-style, etc. The Poet’s Corner is also a great place to read poems written by members, to help you get to know them better.

ARTICLES Read articles about dating and other interesting topics written by singles. Or write your own articles and get feedback on your topic.

MUSIC, MOVIES, BOOKS Our interests and favorites tell a lot about us. Share the music you love, the movies you recommend and something about books you’ve read. Looking for a good movie or book or CD? Read member reviews or ideas and opinions. And get to know members better by what they like and what they write. Find members with similar tastes.

QUIZZES and TESTS Take fun Quizzes on interesting topics written by other members or write some quizzes of your own. ConnectingSingles has 4 types of quizzes. Take personality quizzes to learn more about your yourself, take tests to see how much you know about a given topic, take How Well Do You know me quizzes to test how much you already know about a member, or take member’s compatibility quizzes to see if you connect with them. Take quizzes, make quizzes, leave comments!.. it’s fun to do, and a great way to share something about yourself and get to know others.

PROFILE REVIEWS Are you wondering about the first impression your profile gives, what members really think of what you’ve written about yourself? Are you open to some constructive criticism? Post your request for review and get helpful tips on how you can improve. Or read reviews of other members profiles and post your comments.

GROUPS A Group is organized to give members who share a common interest, background or belief a place to share ideas and discussion about their specific interest. It's often hard to get to know new people in a big place. Joining a small group will help connect you to like-minded members in a more intimate environment. Each Group has its own forum for discussion. Join an existing group or start one of your own.

TAGS Tags help connect members with like interests. Tag your profile with keywords to help members can find you. Use the tags page to search for all members who have tagged keywords of interest to you.

TOP 10 LISTS Creating a TOP10 LIST allows you to share your knowledge, experiences, or favorites with others. It can be a personal list (My Top10 Favorite things to do on a First Date) or non-personal (Top10 Ways to Attract a Mate). Top10 lists are easy to do and fun to read. Topic of your List can be fact or favorite, helpful or humorous, historical… or just plain weird. It's up to you.

FACE PUZZLES PUZZLE YOUR FRIENDS... upload a photo and create a cool puzzle of yourself. Invite your friends to see how well you fit together.

OTHER FEATURES In addition to the features listed above, ConnectingSingles also has Who’s Viewed Me Lists, Friends Lists, Fans Lists, Shouts, Testimonials, Photo Commenting, onsite Mailbox, and a large variety of Search options.

STABILITY is a Minnesota based company, online since 2001, started with a mission of building a quality site, and making it totally free to use.
