    I don't know if someone has already thought of this and if they have I am sorry.
    I was thinking maybe Lovehoney should make their own dating forum. This is a specialised company which everyone here has an interest in. There is your first thing in common. I don't know the facts or figures on the single users ratio but I bet it could help bring a lot of people together and of course increase sales.

    Like I said I'm not sure if this has already been thought of but I would like to know what you all think. . .

    I don't think it's something lovehoney would do as the anonymity is very important to users.

    There is no sharing of personal details and this keeps members safe.

    Personally the fact it's safe is why I'm here and not on any other forums.

    I do see where your coming from, but I don't think it would be something lovehoney would do.

    Whilst I agree with the reasons why Lovehoney have such strict rules and why they don't do it, I do think this is a possible good idea! It is hard to divulge extreme personal details and to meet others with the same interests without going on to very extreme forums! At least if you were able to discuss your fetishes and likes before meeting there wouldn't be any surprises or dissapointments. The Lovehoney forum and their success does prove there are a lot of us out there with simular interest so maybe there is a call for a dating site for adventurous people.

    This is a terrific idea!

    I completely understand that people want to remain anonymous to talk on this open forum, but surely on the Lovehoney dating site, people can sign up and have a username totally different from their forum name in order to date.

    This way you can still use the forum and for the dating site use another name/proper name keeping your anonymity on the forum.

    Hey, sign me up! I'd love to date a Latex lover! 😉😀

    Even in relationships some topics are taboo and both partners might not want to admit or go into details regarding there personal preferences. I understand the privacy that Lovehoney provides but I'm sure there is a way of opting in to such a service and choosing what to disclose. I hope if they do come up with such a service they would remember who initiated it lol

    I think this is such a lovely idea!
    And I'm sure there could be "opt in" choices so that not everyone had to be involved.
    As long as it's done safely and properly.
    I mean..... there's maybe even a demand for NSA hook ups or swingers groups 🙊

    This has been asked many times before, Leanne's reply went pretty much like this.

    The forum used to have a private chat function; thats what the add friend button was for. it proved imposible to moderate; and there was much abuse of the facilitly, resulting in it being removed, never to be returned.

    Even the ability to post twitter tags was revoked as member disputes on twitter were spilling back on to the forum.

    Lovehoney is a business and the forum is there to allow customers of the main site to come and ask advice about sex toys sold on the site and sex from other members.

    The internet is repleate with sites for the purpose of meeting people to date.

    Yes sounds good to me, ah thx Alicia i was wondering why there was the add friend option as i was using it i thougth you could message people it's a shame some people can't behave and then over abuse rights and spoil things for everyone else! But the friend button helps me to see which thread people been on if you don't keep up to date with forum, however such a shame you can't message people so the lovehoney dating would be amazing

    I've thought this myself.
    Especially when there's 2 single people who could meet if only in a friend situation .

    Separate profiles , would make sense.
    Think again Love Honey.

    The big bonus I can see from it is like other dating sites you could have a lists of likes and dislikes but obviously that list would be a bit different! Aswell as things like "cinema,socialising etc" you'd also have things "anal, latex, bondage" then you could meet someone with same interest and also fetishes as you! I have some extreme fetishes and needs and if I had to meet someone again I know this would a make or break for a relationship! If you could get it all out before you met so both would know and you could find someone who shares your interest surely that would help.

    Well you can put your likes and dislikes on your profile, it is a shame that we can't share our twitter handles on here now though seeing as lovehoney do promote on social media sites.

    I don't see any issues with safety on here when you hide behind a user name as long as you don't share personal information.

    But at end of day love honey make the rules so we will just have to follow them.

    There are plenty of dating sites out there who spend a lot of time trying to get good at pairing people. I think Lovehoney should stick to what they do best. Sexual Happiness!

    Couldn't agree more. If there was a dating section I would feel rather uncomfortable. I enjoy my times on the forums as I don't feel like anyone's trying to get into my knickers. There are so many dating sites and hook up sites where you can find those into similar things.

    I thought it odd that there was a "friend request" thing, but basically you still couldn't PM the user. Given LH's previous negative experience around this, I can understand their position.

    I guess they are looking for a way to enhance their core business, and an open forum where ideas are discussed without external pressure helps them achieve that (no risk of personal contact etc). If you were to add in a dating aspect, it may put people off venturing here to begin with, and possibly costing them sales.

    Ahh it's a shame the chat facility was removed, would have made it easier to ask specific questions from people. Oh well, forum seems nice and active :)
