You also get to see all the information that was added when the account was created (height, drinking and smoking habits, religion, ethnicity, etc.) and when the person was last online.

What you see when you first open the app is a profile of a candidate that matches your criteria.

My Single Friend allows you to create a network of friends, where for instance you can have more than one friend helping you with recommending potential dates, and vice versa.

If your friend accepts, he or she will first answer 5 quick questions from a menu (e.g.

whether you prefer Guns Nā€™ Roses to Nirvana), and then add his or her description or thoughts about you (max 2,000 characters).

However, your friend doesn't do all the work of filling out the profile ā€“ you still do most of it.

There are two ways of signing up, either one of your friends can take the initiative to create an account, start filling out the information and then invite you to complete it - or you can start the process yourself and then invite your friend to add his or her contribution.

All in all, this process should take about an hour (or more) of effective time, as the written parts of the profile (the verification and recommendation by your friend) are key to a successful profile.

The way you find dates on My Single Friend is through its search feature.

My Single Friend has a blog that provides dating tips and advice, shows featured profiles, displays success stories of people that met on the site, and also promotes discounts and special offers.
