If you clicked on it you only got yourself to blame, its almost become fashionable for some people to join every single dating site there is.
Addicted to the lonely hearts scene or what ?

I don't see a problem with joining another site to look for the calibre of person you seek if you can't find that on the existing site...but if it doesn't...I don't blame people for trying yet others.

Personal choice...I guess some with closed minds wouldn't get a response no matter which site they chose

I got the invitation too....thanks, but the URL is broken.


I have the same problem. I was invited to join evow by email. When I go to www.evow.com, I get an empty blue page, with sorry in the title.

After googling, I found several aspx pages, like acount.aspx, search.aspx. But none to join. Can anybody give me the exact link including the correct .aspx for joining?

Does evow exclude people from countries by the IP? Is Germany not allowed in?

People are encouraged to try as many different avenues as possible and the internet dating site is supposed to be an extension to real life interactions and to try another site is a good idea. The benefit of a smaller site is that it is smaller and with less choice it takes away the sweetie effect, makes you focus more on the profile than the picture.
The site though if advertised just through here would have people who have experienced this site. The site could easily have merits in the future and even now it may let two profiles see each other that would of been almost impossible with a site this large.

Joined out of curiosity and seeing how some people have set "my background" and "my ideal partner" in such ridiculous ways is hilarious.

Non smokers want smokers then smokers want non smokers, single mothers want men with no children, women without children want men with children. Crazy stuff but sure is

Now multiply that experience by 100 and you'll know how the blokes on POF feel.

I am afraid that was my point. Unread/deleted is not gender specific both men AND women experience it dear sir!

Evow is limited to a few countries
Posted: 9/15/2010 7:27:39 AM
I happened to find the page to join EVOW in the cache of google. It only allows a few English-speaking countries in.

Germans are not welcome. Even by entering UK and a London zip code, I was sent back to the empty blue page.

Obviously, they discriminate people by their IP. But it would have been fair to announce this on the POF site. I got an email sent by Markus inviting serious members of POF to EVOW.
Why on earth did he include me in his list, if I am not wanted?

It is like being invited and when arriving getting the door slammed into my face........

If they do not want me in evow, ok, but I wasted my time looking for a technical glitch on my computer, when I got that blank evow page.

Methinks perhaps just another site to attract advertising revenue. Or am I being a tad cynical again

^^^^^^
A tad realistic I'd say.
I think one has to bear in mind that the new site is at an early stage of its development, so I suppose the sort of initial problems outlined above are inevitable.
However, I see no reason to change my view that these dating sites are generally as good (or bad) as each other.
Obviously, the more sites one is affiliated to, the greater your chances of success. The same applies to the number of times you are going to feel disappointed, frustrated, resentful etc etc. !

It is for people looking for a long term relationship or marriage and it is free for the first "certain" number of people who sign up.....

Thanks Isolde, you have confirmed my worst suspicions. Had a desperate forlorn hope that Evow might be my last chance to find my true and everlasting long term lover and friend, now dashed

Have just tried to log on and found, as others, site is down. Oh well, perhaps it's my overflowing message inbox that has caused the problem


Was getting into a conversation with girl now its gone tits up and i cant get on
my condolences and sympathy, you do have a problem. Do you need a leg up, or perhaps a ladder.
Keep smiling, everyone

I joined this site and have received a few messages. Your right its all just POF members right now. It seems that there are a lot more women than men in my age group on evow which is good if your a guy because on most dating sites men outnumber women giving women the advantage. I received an email saying it would be free for me. I assume thats because I joined early but I am skeptical. I'm not convinced yet that they are not all of a sudden going to say "your free membership is up. Time to pay"

I joined Evow this week but am not impressed. There doesn't seem to be many members, the search is poor, there is no way of knowing if people are online or when they have been active recently, I think some profiles are years old but theres no way to tell.
