Here's how to use various Friend Finder dating sites.

Signing Up

Sign up with a Friend Finder dating site, choose a user name and confirm your email address. All Friend Finder dating sites require email confirmation before a profile can be completed.



Membership Types

Choose the type of membership you want. Friend Finder dating sites offer a free membership, but it comes with limited capabilities. To be able to use all of the communications capabilities of Friend Finder dating sites, such as being able to email other members, choose a silver or gold membership. While signing up for a paid dating membership, you can also choose extra account features such as having your profile highlighted in search results or allowing members with free memberships to email you without having to pay to do so.



Create Your Profile

Fill in your personal profile with the site. This includes deciding what type of relationship you're looking for from other members of the site. This can be a serious relationship or just a friendship. Include pictures in your profile. Online dating sites all recommend pictures in order to get more responses from the member you're interested in.



Search Options

Find singles that you have something in common with. There are several search options for finding profiles that will interest you. Search for members who live in the immediate area, who want the type of relationship you are looking for or who have the specific traits you are looking for.



Discussion Groups

Join any of the discussion groups that interest you. These groups are what give the Friend Finder dating sites the social networking atmosphere they are famous for. The discussion groups allow the Friend Finder dating sites to function as both online dating sites and a place to find friends. The discussion groups often center on specific areas, allowing you to meet people in the local area.



Use Caution

Be cautious about offering too much personal information online. Online dating personal profiles often include information such as favorite activities, hobbies, favorite movies and other information that doesn't personally identify the site member. Don't include your address, phone number, personal email address or your real name on your personal profile.
