MySingleFriend.com has an absurd premise: you sign up, and a friend refers you to women. Or you refer a friend, whichever.
The creator apparently got her rocks off by matching up her friends in brickspace, so she thought it would be a fabulous idea to make a site do it for other people. You know, a site where the person who’s referring you has never met the women, the women don’t know a damn thing about you from what your friend says (which you could have fed to your friend), and basically she has to rely on your friend’s word that you’re not an axe murderer.
It’s basically built for that shy guy who sits hunched over in his cubicle all day at work and doesn’t say a single word to another human being at all if he can avoid it. That’s the kind of wuss you have to be to use MySingleFriend.com.
MySingleFriend.com: Review Our Results Using The MySingleFriend.com Site
To use it, we had to have friends refer us, so we created two profiles, linked them as friends, and started the referral process. Can we pause for a minute and note how ridiculous it is that we had to do twice the work just to find women to message? Come on, MySingleFriend.com, do you really think that’s an intelligent business model?
Apparently, a lot of people agree with us. Just finding five hundred women who might reply took ages. Because the site is so absurd, not a lot of people use it. The ones who do seem kind of desperate. It’s probably because we showered the site with confidence that we walked away with no dates and only forty-seven returned messages.
MySingleFriend.com Issues: 3 Things MySingleFriend.com Didn’t Do Well
We hate to harp, but the business model is plain stupid. It requires a person who doesn’t have the nerve to introduce themselves to other people to get their friends—if they have any—to refer them to other people. If they don’t have any friends, we guess either they’re screwed or they really hope someone else’s referral comes near them. Then maybe they’ll land someone. For the people who have the confidence to introduce themselves on their own, this site is pointless. You’ll give people a much better impression than your friends can do for you; for one thing, you don’t look like a coward.
Did we mention that they don’t have much of a userbase? That shows on the front page: they specifically ask for success stories to be shared so they can advertise them. Right there, the site asks if you got lucky. The fact that they have to beg like that tells us two things: not many people use it and even fewer are successful.
The users are truly pathetic. We guess they have friends who refer them, since we found them, but the women are just sad. They seem depressed and lonely, they don’t seem to have an ounce of self-esteem, and they’re probably all going to have ninety cats and die alone. And then their cats will eat them.
MySingleFriend.com Review: Is MySingleFriend.com Legit & Worth Joining?
In case you missed it, MySingleFriend.com has the single stupidest, most ridiculous business model of any dating site we’ve tested yet, and that’s saying something. We got less than a ten percent return on messages sent in the form of replies, and all those replies just seemed pathetic. Maybe we were already biased by the site scheme, but how can anyone be desperate enough to go this route? Mostly, we felt bad for the women who replied. We shouldn’t feel that way about respondents; we should be interested and into them. For comparison’s sake, check out Match or another top site, and you’ll see a dating site done right.
