LovelyArab.com offers a wide range of options, features, and conveniences that you would often only find with a paid membership rather than a free site. To join, simply answer a list of questions, most of which offer multiple choice answers. Within five minutes you are online and searching for that special someone. While a photo is not required to set up a profile, it will make your chances of someone finding you ten times better - so be sure not to skip this step.
If you're still debating whether or not you would like to join you can take a site tour on LovelyArab.com's home page, which gives an explanation of the site, how online dating can work for you, and the many benefits the site has to offer. In addition, their Success Stories section of the site is available before you've joined, so you can read how the site has worked for others - no better way to seal the deal than hearing stories of found love.
With very detailed search options, you can find exactly what you're looking for, in no time at all. LovelyArab.com has many options for interaction, once you find a member with a pleasing profile. You can wink, if you're feeling shy. You can send a postcard, with multiple options for background, pictures, and sounds; you can type in a message, if you wish, then preview the card and send it on its way. These postcards are slightly more personal than a wink, but require less detai than a standard email. If the initial flirting has been fruitful and you want to let that person know how you feel in more detailed emails, you can! There's even the option to send unlimited emails so you don't have to worry about having your communications curtailed right in the middle of a promising exchange with someone special.
For more interactive options, you may utilize LovelyArab.com's Instant Messaging option, or go for the 3D chat, which gives you images to accompany your conversation, making it feel more real, as if you're really sitting next to the person. You can also record videos offline (when you're looking especially hot!), then share those videos with other members and watch the popularity of your profile soar! For those of you who love to express yourself through writing, you can share your thoughts via a blog, updating it as often as you like.
Your personal home page (A.K.A. profile page) is nicely laid out with an array of useful tools to make it fun and easy to interact with other members and keep a record of those interactions. Here you can view new mail, new winks, new members and new members in your area. You can see the total number of times you've been viewed since joining the site or since your last login. With easily accessed tabs and links across the top of each page, you can quickly move on to your music, your videos, and your blog. You can perform searches or see groups of people with similar interests who are online now. There are the chat options and a voting area where you can view profile pictures and vote on whether or not you're interested! This is similar to the "Hot or Not?" section on other dating sites.
At the top right of every page is a link to Settings, a section of the site that allows you to change the language on your profile. With people joining world wide, this is very helpful. Settings also allows you to enable or disable email notifications telling you that you've received a new message or wink, so you can be as on top of your online dating game as you want. You can also choose to receive the weekly newsletter, which offers advice and columns on dating and relationships. This is also where you can choose to hide your profile, or in the event that you've found 'The One' you can delete your profile, with the ease of a single click.
We noticed many technical glitches with the LovelyArab.com site. The link to the Help page brought up an error page and a few other actions, though not specific, also brought up error pages where the links were broken. This is one of the downsides of a free dating site: unlike fee-based sites, free sites do not have the money to provide the same level of technical support or fix broken links efficiently. So if you're serious about finding someone special online, we suggest that you become a member of our top ranked site, and also sign up with one of our higher ranking free sites rather than LovelyArab.com.
Please note that Lovely Arab has now been discontinued.
