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.
Welcome to Midsummer's Eve - UK and Ireland's award-winning original free dating site - celebrating twelve 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.
A little history: 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.
To keep the bank manager happy we have also introduced some optional paid-for services which we call Essentials.
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, USA and all over the world, 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. Members propose a meetup - it could be a theatre trip, pub visit, walk in the country or anything really. There have been literally hundreds of meetups throughout the UK and all over Europe since we've been offering this service.
