- UK and Ireland's award-winning original free dating site - celebrating twenty years of love, romance and friendship! With thousands of marriages, dozens of babies born, hundreds and hundreds of new lasting friendships formed, we're your number one choice for finding friendship and love online.
We started in August 1999 as a free online dating site. The site grew exponentially, with fantastic reviews in the Daily Mail, Mirror, Guardian, Cosmopolitan, Computer Weekly and many other publications. We were nominated as Steve Wright's Web Site of the Day (BBC Radio 2) and a year later we got the accolade again! As far as we know we're the only web site ever to have won the award twice.
Whilst other dating sites began charging extortionate prices for dating services, we decided to keep dating free. We're proud to have been offering our successful service free of charge ever since.
We have always had a free-of-charge philosophy. Here's what we offer:
Midsummer's Eve is the UK's first and oldest free dating site. We pioneered the concept of offering online dating services free of charge. We were not set up as a business, but set up to try to make a genuine difference in people's lives. With tens of thousands of members in the UK and Ireland, we're one of the premiere web sites for dating.
Whilst we're first and foremost a successful dating site, we also have pioneered the concept of social dating. This means that even if you haven't met and fallen in love with one of our members yet, you'll be meeting new friends along the way. One of the things that our members find surprising, is that they went in search of love, but found dozens of genuine lasting friendships as well.
How do we do this? Mainly through our fab Conversations feature. Members start a conversation - other members join in! There have been literally thousands of great conversations since we've been offering this service. Why not join us to find out what's going on?
Whilst there's a lot going on, we have never forgotten the one thing that makes falling in love special - the sheer romance of it all. We're incurable romantics ourselves (that's we set up a free dating site in the first place) and we just love seeing relationships blossom, friendships form, and marriages result. We've thousands of success stories already, but there's always room for one more - and we want it to be you! Please join us and find out the real meaning of romance.
Finally a quick word about our name. Midsummer's Eve is renowned the world over as being the most romantic night of the year. As Shakespeare understood so well, the spirits come alive on this special, magical night. In fact folklore has it that charms and divinations, predictors of love, will work on this night alone. That's why we named our site Midsummer's Eve.
