To keep the bank manager happy we have also introduced some optional paid-for services which we call Essentials.
Midsummer's Eve is the UK's first and oldest free dating site.
Twodoves is a place where you can search for people in your country or around the world and read about them before you decide to contact them.
We also offer a free subscription option in return for you telling your friends about the site.
You might make some new friends or you may just find the love of your life.
This means that even if you haven't met and fallen in love with one of our members yet, you'll be meeting new friends along the way. Members propose a meetup - it could be a theatre trip, pub visit, walk in the country or anything really. There have been literally hundreds of meetups throughout the UK and all over Europe since we've been offering this service.
One of the things that our members find surprising, is that they went in search of love, but found dozens of genuine lasting friendships as well. Why not join us to find out what's going on in your area?
We pioneered the concept of offering online dating services free of charge.
