When I logged back in, I found the site had automatically determined my gender as male, so I had to go into My Account at the top right of the page and then scroll down to change it. From the same My Account page, you’ll want to set up your profile so that people can find you.
Friends, Email, Nothing Serious and Marriage are your only choices in the “looking for” section, which implies people can, and do use Friends Reunited as a dating site.
Ever since then Friends Reunited have tried to re-brand themselves in attempts to woo back the member base of yesteryear.

The first seven games to be included last between one and five minutes and are intended to add interaction between players through instant messaging.
They are doing away with the standard matchmaking personality tests and using the fad of social interest pin boards to connect people.
