Lov repeatedly states in their Terms and Conditions that they do not check the profiles of their members. This protocol screams red flag because catfishers and scammers can easily access the website. With the member’s safety in mind, Lov ultimately decided to reserve most of its communication features for paying users only.
In terms of functionality, nothing’s new; Lov encourages you to use your words and interact to get that match.
Lov’s version of the famed “Favourites List,” pin an engaging member’s profile on your pinboard, so you don’t lose their name after browsing. Pinboard is free, so go on and pin as many as you can.
This directory-like feature lists down the profiles of all members who matched your criteria. Technically, there isn’t much in terms of standards.
The matches included are either single males or females or a couple, depending on your preference upon registration. Apart from that, matches are also decided depending on location. The nearer they are, the higher the rank. As with the Pinboard, you can use the Match tab for free.
Icebreakers is a premium feature that aims to introduce members to each other, even if they’re offline. Mostly computer-generated or customised by Lov’s team; Icebreakers are not only limited to messages—these can be actions, too.
Once you allow the site to send or do Icebreakers on your behalf, they will help you interact with potential matches. And don’t worry, the receiver will know you’re using an Icebreaker. Your profile will include a statement reading “I use Icebreaker to connect with other people” to indicate that Lov may be the one doing the sending and commenting.
The feature is just that—breaking the ice. Ultimately, it’s your charm and wits that will land you the date.
Seriously, what dating site won’t allow a person-to-person interaction? At Lov, not only can you send words, but you can also customise with emojis and even share photos for a livelier conversation. Opening, sending, and responding to chats are for premium users only; thus, you can somehow feel secure in knowing that you’re interacting with someone real.
If you wanted to have some action while at Lov, it seems like remaining a standard account holder is disadvantageous. To freely interact, you’ll have to subscribe to a premium account.
