Our systems automatically look for scammers and they are flagged for the moderation team. We have a zero-tolerance approach and erase accounts every day. You can also report and block any member who you feel is not genuine. Dating sites always have undesirable accounts and we don't hide this fact away, we provocatively hunt for them and remove them to improve your overall experience.

Your GPS location is approximated, pictures are optional, no full date of birth, first names only, and passwords are stored in a way that would take 100s of years to decode.

Relationship expert advice

A quick Google® for the search terms 'Desperate Dating' and you are inundated with expert advice from bloggers and relationship professionals. The vast majority of these are guides on how not to appear desperate with rules and suggestions to follow. If you have been single for what seems like an eternity you may have read content such as this and found that it still didn't help. There is also some good general advice hidden within the search results. At Desperate Dating, we believe you just need to be yourself and match with others who are also not interested in playing games and following dating rules.

Let's take a look at some of the advice, these are from a selection of websites on how not to appear desperate.

Being available at any time

Dating and confidence consultant, Nick Notas has an in-depth article on ''10 Mistakes that make you look desperate''. This includes:

You never want to say, “I’m free whenever, just let me know.” or “I’m open Monday, Tuesday, Friday, and the weekend.” You’re not being concrete enough and you won’t get her to commit to a specific day with you. . . If you really have all that free time, then you should work on becoming a man that women chase.

Telling someone the days that you are free makes perfect sense. It would be wrong to lie just to make yourself look busy, this is an awful way to start a relationship. If you don't have a busy life then please embrace it, your date might be glad that you actually have time for them. You have already been single for far too long, so reinventing yourself as a busy person to get women to chase you isn't going to help. Relationships need time and effort, they should not be squeezed into your fake busy schedule.

Over pleasing and lies

Desperate singles are warned about over-pleasing their dates/partners. There must be millions of people in relationships desperate to be over-pleased!

Over-pleasing -- Trying to make your partner feel good in a relationship is a good thing, but overdoing it may come off as desperate. It may make your partner think that you need him or her too much.

Don't lie or embellish the truth. The truth will always prevail; embellishing your attributes to catch the attention of another is a desperate maneuver that will most certainly come back to haunt you.

Chloe Carmichael

Dr. Carmichael makes a very valid point with respect to the truth which also contradicts Nick Notas' advice about inventing a busy life. Being honest is so important and this emphasizes the key point of just being yourself.

Try something different

Hunt Ethridge, relationship expert says that at some stage you may need to try a different approach. If something isn't working then why keep trying over and over again?

Desperate means “of extreme intensity” and I can think of nothing that pushes people to the extremes more than coupling! So many people advise you to hang back and play it cool. But if you’ve tried that for so long to no avail, maybe it’s time for a change of tactics. If you have an extreme intensity to be in a relationship and find that other person that feels the same, why not try something new?

Don't play games or follow rules

Some people find dating and relationships complex enough and I would recommend not making it more challenging by defining a complex set of rules to follow. It's more important to be open, honest, and genuine. You want to attract these same qualities, this is what will help you in the long term.
