may not be as "cool" as Happy Pancake or Tinder but it’s one of the oldest and most well-established dating sites in Sweden (it arrived in the Nordic countries in 2002.) There are plenty of foreigners here alongside Swedes and it's one of the biggest ponds in the Swedish net-dating landscape – though you do need to be aware of fake fish, as scam accounts are common. You can try out a free version but in order to use the best functions you’ll need to fork out some cash.
All our members are single people in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland just like you, who are looking for a bit of craic and romance. We have strict rules – no married people, no sexual profiles.
Another difference is that other dating sites make you subscribe to read and reply to messages, but on Spark!
