LuckyLovers is an oddity amongst mail order bride sites. Really, it only just fits into this category due to the cursory mention it gives to foreign brides in its profiles section. The site tries to be lots of different things and succeeds at none of them unfortunately. We don’t think you will have much luck finding a bride here, but there are a few features which might be worth a look if you have nothing better to do with your time.
To start with the actual mail order bride features provided by LuckyLovers we should mention the section of the site that operates a bit like a traditional mail order bride site. You create a profile, upload a photo or two and are then free to browse the profiles submitted by other members. True, most of these are by foreign women, but we weren’t sure how recent most of the profiles were. You can send messages to other members through the private email system and even leave them voice messages if you have a microphone attached to your computer. Video introductions can be uploaded to your profile too if you want to make a lasting first impression.
If you would rather meet some random strangers than browse through the profiles, LuckyLovers provides some free chat rooms which are easy to join. So far so good then, although the site badly needs a makeover and, as we mentioned, it doesn’t seem like many of the profiles have been updated in a while. What makes LuckyLovers strange though are the extra features it deems it necessary to provide. Firstly, there are forums dedicated to all manner of ‘fun’ contests between members of the site that don’t seem to have been used much. Secondly, there is an area dedicated to members uploading and sharing videos, which is very badly designed. Finally, there is a forum dedicated to helping people find travel partners – not specifically to meet lades from the site, but just in general! Oh, and we forgot to mention the rate-and-be-rated photography section where you can upload photos of anything you fancy.
All of these features might be at home on a decent community centered site, but not on a mail order bride site! Especially when most are so badly implemented they are pretty unusable. It doesn’t seem like there is much of a community to use them either – which might be just as well. However, premium membership is free if you meet certain conditions, so as bad as it is you have nothing to lose by giving it a try. When you are ready to seriously start looking for a foreign bride we recommend checking out our top ten list of the best mail order bride sites we have found.
