Free users are also limited to sending and receiving ‘flirts’ which are automatic alerts sent to your inbox, or sent to the member of your choice inbox. They are a great way of breaking the ice, but until you subscribe to a monthly membership you cannot communicate via any other method.
Premium members however have unlimited use of a number of contact features, including sending and receiving emails, instant messages, live public and private chat and also audio and video messages.
Other site features include dating articles and safety advice, message boards and discussion forums, member blogs, and a ‘little black book’ where you can store the details of any member you are interested in.
