Which site are you using now?

I am missing it because it was slow-paced. I tried Match but got a bit overwhelmed with all the spammy messages.

Plus I liked the (mostly) good grammar and lack of text-speak.

Is there anywhere else to meet crusty vegetarians who look like Jeremy Corbyn grin

This doesn’t answer you question but that’s where I met my now dh.

I also would like to know. Someone needs to set up an equivalent.

Marking place. I can't be doing with dating apps which consist of glossy pics and a few ungrammatical words.

GSM has stopped? I loved that site when I was last dating.

Yes dudsville. It shut down in June. I only went on one actual date in the 3 years I was on it but I liked the idea that I was technically "doing online dating" without it taking up too much of my time.

And yes I met my ex on there 12 years ago and we had 8 good years (and 1 terrible year but that's not GSM's fault).

I’m finding Hinge has a better class of man on it. It’s not perfect, but seeing some interesting people.

Didn’t realise they’d closed down GSM. Met my partner of four years on there and definitely found the online dating experience much nicer there than on other sites. What a shame.

That is a real shame. Business opportunity for someone!

Agree with pp. If you're in or near a city - hinge

Good memories of GSM! Great dating website.
