You can also do a more advanced search based on aspects that might be important to you such as religion, race, marital status, smoking/drinking habits and even aspects of appearance that might be important to you such as hair color, build and so on.
You can receive “kisses” even as a standard member without upgrading to gold. However, as a standard member you can not send kisses but you will get an idea as to what members are interested in you, which means you can initiate conversation.
If you have privacy concerns on a dating site, there are some things you can do to protect your security. You can block certain members if they make you feel uncomfortable and gold members will also have access to a private email.
