*Review: Let's Mingle With Singles*


I live in L.A., and if there's one thing I love hearing about it's a new dating service. Especially one that focuses on real-life interaction and not just swiping left and right, with messages that go nowhere.


So when I heard about dating website Let's Mingle with Singles , (which is based in Las Vegas but available nationwide), I had to check it out. The site offers the traditional online dating experience - that is, you create your profile and you can search and message other members. But the cool thing Let's Mingle with Singles (LMWS) is doing is creating a community where people are invited to engage and participate, making interaction a little easier and more organic.


I was tooling around the website and came across the "Mingler Zone," which is a feature inviting website VIP members to engage. Every day, LMWS offers a theme with a game to play - and to win cool prizes. For instance, "Manic Mondays" offers an early morning trivia question - first person wins, so those of you who are morning people, this is your day of the week! "Thirsty Thursdays" encourages members to give "drinks" to each other from the virtual gift store during happy hour as an ice breaker to start messaging, and a prize is awarded for the person sending and the person receiving the most drinks. Party on...


The other days of the week offer great prizes, too - including "Over the Hump Wednesdays," "Tantalizing Tuesdays," and for all you lotto players - "Lucky Fridays," where the first 50 people pick a number between 1-50 and have a shot to win the lucky number of the day. Because it's payday, winners get a cash prize. During the month of November, the company held a special raffle where they chose one current VIP LMWS member and one new member to win cash prizes of $200 each.

People can join LMWS for free, but to take part in the cool offerings you have to upgrade to VIP status. The cost is $8.95 per month - a steal for the online dating industry - and you could potentially win prizes well over that investment.


There are other ways of engaging on the site, including a sports news area called “Let’s Talk Sports” where you can get all the latest on your favorite teams, scores, etc. and talk about it with your matches. And as a woman who doesn't watch sports, I’m glad that LMWS added some pop culture/ gossip news, too in their “Let’s Talk” section - like what's going on with any of the Kardashians. And in the next three months, the company is launching a movie review section called – you guessed it - “Let’s Talk Movies,” which will give you the scoop on what’s worth taking your date to see and what’s not.


What I like most about LMWS from a personal standpoint is that it's upfront about the membership you are signing up for. Some dating websites make it impossible to delete your profile even if you make it inactive, so they can count you in their membership numbers. LMWS lets you be in control of your experience and what you want. If you want VIP status, you can buy it. When it expires, it doesn't automatically renew like most dating sites.

Right now for you L.A. daters, LMWS is running a special promotion with LA-based car wash service Handy J Car Wash. If you purchase a 3-month VIP membership, you receive a $10 gift certificate for your next car wash. And we all know how important your car is in L.A…


I'm curious to see how you guys find the experience. Send me a note when you join Let's Mingle With Singles and let me know what you think. And use promo code LMWSK33.


Happy dating!
