Loopylove Website Review

Loopylove Reviews

Loopy love is one of UK’s leading dating site for heterosexual singles aged 18 and above. It has more than 1.6 million active singles dating in their site. Loopy love is a site that focuses exclusively for the members in UK. With such a large user database, it makes the site quite popular in UK.

It was launched on 14th of February in the year 2003 and has had a rapid development, that it now occupies a top spot for sure. It is a fun and quirky site that provides you a very relaxed environment for online dating. It has an enormous user-base with a lot of interesting features. These features actually makes the site more fun than other sites.

Design and Navigation

Talking about the design of the website, we were not that impressed. It is quite blank, a lot of colours could have been added. The design had been improved in the year 2007, yet, it requires more of attention and much more of design improvements.

For instance one of the navigational shortcomings was that, you will not be able to return to the search in one click when you are browsing the profiles. The only way is that, you will have to click over your browser’s back button in order to return to LoopyLove’s search results. Another issue with the design is that, there could have been menu options in the sides of the site too, as there are options available only on the top half. This requires scrolling each time you need to click over a menu. When someone invites you for a chat, it pops-up, interrupting you from whatever you were doing. You have no options to turn off instant messaging.

This might not seem to be a big issue, but these are the areas where, “ease of use” comes to play, which will be certainly reflected on our rating.

Profile and its Quality

The sign-up in the site is not that interesting as the page itself gives you a low-tech feel . You will find it very difficult to find the fee structure unless you register with the site. This might be certainly annoying, but we have listed you the pricing clearly and so, that is not going to be a problem for you.

The profile gives you a lot of chances where you can be original and you can make it stand-out from other profiles by spending some real time on it. It is a bit less serious and is real fun. While registering, you will have to answer about 18 questions which include the description of what you are looking for, your tag name, demographic information name, address and phone number. All of the questions must be answered. The phone number is not a part of the profile, it is only for the loopy-love people and so “no worries!”.

Some questions can make someone feel either irritated or funny, depending on the person’s mood. For instance, questions like “which star do you most resemble?”. There are a lot of drop-down boxes that makes options limited. They also make tasks much easier for you and most of them look and sound funny. The question “what you are loopy about?” has a lot of funny answers in some of the profiles. Then you can also upload your photo and a 30 second video clip. The video clip addition option is a great one as, photos always lie, especially with a little help from photoshop, it can be a big liar cock and it is better to ask for a little video preview.

In addition, you can also complete the optional personality assessment feature that lets you know about your personality, traits, relationship motivation and relationship strengths.

Features and exclusives of the site

Loopy love has all the other standard features that people are familiar from other networking sites, and those include instant messaging, email, favourites, sending smiles and block members. It also has some additional features like admirers section and you can also access the site via mobile . Video chat is also possible.

Mobile messaging:

Another unique feature of LoopyLove is mobile messaging. You will be able to keep in touch with interested profiles even if you are not browsing. But, this feature does cost you 5pounds. You will be charged 25p for each message profile or photo you receive. In addition to that, your standard network text message sending costs will apply. You can stop or manage this service on the “my mobile” page in your profile or you can just text LOOPY STOP to 84949.

Love wall:

On each of the user’s profile page there is a “love wall” which is similar to the face book’s wall application. Anybody can post anything in this wall and this wall can host any number of messages but each of it must be less than 2000 characters. The love wall posts are not immediately posted on the wall, the messages must be approved by the owner of that particular love wall and the LoopyLove has to give their approval

Love wheel:

Another fun feature is that you can spin the love wheel and when it lands on someone, it takes you directly to their information.

My words:

Loopy love also uses the search engine techniques to be enjoyed by the users. Each user can provide a list of words that describe them so that other people can easily find them if their search term matches, but each member can have only nine “my words”. for instance, if you list yourself as “beautiful”, the search results of the word “beautiful” will result in listing of your profile along with others with others who have included the word “beautiful” in their profile. The “my words” window is placed right next to your profile. These nine words are put in large fonts and bright colours, giving your profile visitors a quick glance of your predominant characteristics.

Love bomb:

Another very interesting and unique feature of LoopyLove is the “love bomb” which allows each user to send an introduction about themselves to 100 other members who they are most compatible with, each week. Since this message can be sent only once in a week, the amount of bulk mail would certainly be in control.

Searching:

Searching in LoopyLove is simple and quick. You can have the list of members who you are already interested in a separate window which is easy to change if you need to. One major blot with the design is that you will not be able to differentiate between the new users and the already searched users. This makes searching a bit complicated if you are using the site for a long time.

You can also see last time someone has logged in, which will help you get better responses, that is, you can look forward for someone who logs in frequently than those who have logged ages before.

With a lot of interesting features, large database and clean profiles, LoopyLove is certainly recommended.

Loopy love’s campaign: “Loopy-losophy”

“Here we believe dating should be a fun, laidback and sociable affair. You can stand out from the crowd with your very own personalised profile. You can also chat live to other Loopylovers, send emails, upload pictures and upload/watch videos all day long! What’s more thousands of new members have joined the Loopylove group, which means there are a lot more Loopy daters to choose from, so it’s never been a better time to get dating!”

Some highlights from user reviews

Some of the users fell that the word “FREE registration” is simply a bait to get to registered as you will have to subscribe even to view the messages that you have received. Yes! As, we has mentioned in our review, free members cannot last long without actually paying. Users even had issues with the credit points system which was used by the site, however, they have now removed this system.
