honestlydating.com is a brand new dating experience that offers a fresh and unique approach to finding love on line. To celebrate its launch, there are 500 FREE memberships up for grabs.
The business is owned by best friends Anona Hessler and Clare Beaney, and mum of two Clare has a wealth of experience of internet dating. She met the love of her life online, only to have him snatched away from her following a tragic accident. Clare, 40, said: "I know that it IS possible to find love on line because I did! Lots of people criticise dating sites because people use out of date photos and embellish their profiles with loads of stuff that isn't true! This is why we have launched honestlydating.com. Our approach is totally different to other sites, we encourage members to be brutally honest and really buy in to our concept of being transparent, truthful and totally honest about who they are and what they are looking for."
The site differs from others because as well as encouraging honesty, it has a unique feedback system that is not available on other sites.
Anona, 42, who is married with three children added: "We know that we are operating in a highly competitive market and that we needed to offer something much better to our members. Looking for love online is serious, we are offering a service that can change people's lives and it is vital that we offer really good value and a quality service. Our feedback system gives members the chance to rate their date. We hope that this will really reinforce the need for honesty and help people with confidence, personal development and to make some positive changes to their approach to dating.''
It has been reported that some dating sites may buy databases of details to boost their membership and give the impression that the site has tens of thousands of members.
Anona added: "Everyone knows that this can be common practice, but there is nothing worse than visiting a site, seeing loads of photos of available, attractive people and then parting with your hard earned cash, only to find that the profile you were interested in was fake. We don't work like that! We only want REAL people on our site and that is why we are offering hundreds of free memberships to launch the site.
