Dating in NZ
Aussies have it hard enough looking for online dating services that aren’t geared primarily to the rest of the world (hey, we like the United States and Europe just fine, but we’d like to find some local folk), but if you’re a Kiwi, you’ve probably discovered it’s really slim pickings out there – or it has been until recently.
Many times when you click on a link that touts “NZ personals” it merely redirects you to an international site. Nothing wrong with that, but if you want to stay strictly local, why not try out the small sites that cater to Aussies and Kiwis? NZdating.com is the most popular one out there – easy to navigate, although the design is a bit pared down. It comes with a steady, active membership and it’s the most well known NZ dating site around.
There are a few others, though (nzconnections.com for the spiritual seeker and aselectchoice.com.au for those seeking a personalized match up with actual meetings) , that are worth a look. Our favorite is FindSomeone.co.nz. This truly Kiwi site is a pleasant surprise – attractive, well-maintained, with lots of members who obviously are loyal to the site. There’s also a magazine and special member events planned throughout New Zealand ! It’s an attractive, fun site with great chat features that rivals some of the bigger, international sites for quality.
