Although you might be likely to be well matched to people based on the questions asked, the lack of any search of browsing feature means that you’re completely stuck if you want to go outside of the site’s recommendations. We built several profiles and although we had some success in attaining suitable matches, other profiles were simply told that no-one was suitable for them. Surely that’s for us, and them, to decide!
