Commission Junction, the world’s largest affiliate network, today announces the launch of a new affiliate programme with, one of the UK’s most popular dating sites. The success of the site, which launched in 2004, has been largely attributed to its unique approach where profiles are written by friends of the user.

About Mysinglefriend
MySingleFriend is one of the UK’s most unique dating sites. Created by TV presenter Sarah Beeny, the site delivers a fun and engaging dating experience because the profiles are written (and often directly added) by friends of the user. This results in a friendly and community-oriented site of interesting people with great profiles that are interesting, natural and generally very funny.

The friend’s referral creates a much more interesting insight into the person’s character than traditional online dating sites. As friends on the site are linked, singles can check out who knows who, providing a much better picture of the user. Friends can recommend singles people to date too. With over 100,000 users, don't just take our word for it; Radio 1 has described us as the "hottest dating website in the UK", Vogue has featured us in "The List", FHM and Loaded both voted us their favourite dating site, and Revolution claims we "bring the personal touch back to online dating".
