What does “Gleeden” mean ?
The brand Gleeden is a blend of two words: « GLEE » (Enjoyment) and « EDEN » (referring to the Garden of Eden in Genesis).
What is Gleeden? Why use it?
Gleeden is the first international dating website for married people. By registering with Gleeden, you are joining an international community that allows you to meet and interact discreetly with like-minded people, without any dishonesty or insincerity.
Gleeden is a social network where each member has a personal responsibility. You meet, chat and interact with other members to find whatever you may be looking for. You can get in touch with people throughout the world, and reveal your marital status with complete sincerity.
Want to have an intimate conversation with a stranger? A last-minute get away? An adventurous journey? A weekend escape? On Gleeden, we set you free to explore your desires...
Why was Gleeden created?
Gleeden came into being when the internet revolution met the liberalization of the traditional couple. The desire to meet new people, the simple accessibility of the internet, and liberation (not just for women, but now for couples), are modern realities that led to a very real human need for Gleeden’s freedom.
By creating Gleeden, we wanted to return a social freedom to people in relationships, as a central figure in our social network.
Gleeden was born from one simple fact: on the internet, many people in a relationship don't have the freedom to be honest about their marital status. According to a groundbreaking survey from First Privacy Financial (2005), one in every three members registered on traditional meeting sites is married. Gleeden's mission is to respond to the needs of these people.
Is Gleeden an international network?
Gleeden’s international status makes it unique: on this global site, over 159 countries are represented. Whether you're searching in your hometown, or thousands of miles away, Gleeden welcomes and represents members from around the world! Never before has a dating site removed all borders!
To find a member from another country, click "Search" on the navigation bar. Then, in the box marked "Location", enter the town and country where you would like to find someone.
What makes Gleeden different?
Gleeden is a community platform very different from other meeting sites. Our aim is not only to bring members together, but to anticipate their expectations and needs by providing them with reliable content, a high-quality interface, and many innovative services:
- We consistently moderate our members, from registration to profile approval, and throughout the duration of every individual’s use of our services;
- Our site has real international coverage;
- Our policy guarantees 100% real members. Unlike other dating sites, we do not chase members to pad our statistics. Our goal is the satisfaction of our members.
- Our credit system allows members to only buy what they need. No long-term contracts!
- We provide unique content to our members (studies, statistics, articles, blogs, etc...)
Does Gleeden encourage infidelity?
No, Gleeden's goal is not to encourage its members to be unfaithful to their spouses. Gleeden recognizes one simple reality: on the internet, many people in a relationship are not allowed to display their marital status. According to a groundbreaking survey from First Privacy Financial (2005), one in every three members registered on traditional meeting sites is married. Gleeden's wish is to respond to the needs of people in this situation.
Web users who browse on Gleeden are driven by a sense of belonging to the married community. Every member has their own motivations, but they are allowed to experience a more open marriage. Members can decide what type of encounter they are looking for: from a simple chat to a real, face-to-face meeting. Gleeden is, first and foremost, a social site, and does not encourage any behavior or actions taken as a result of social connections developed between married individuals on Gleeden.
Is Gleeden legal?
Yes, Gleeden is a legal community platform. Gleeden is a community where people, both committed and single, can be honest about their marital status in complete security, to meet and interact openly as they wish. We provide the technology and services for this community.
Married people are no longer excluded from social communities; now they are welcomed: to interact, discover new things, and communicate with others who share the same interests and experiences that come with a married or taken lifestyle.

Evaluate other members
How does the evaluation system work?
Only Women can evaluate men. To give a member a positive or negative evaluation, you must have already been in contact with them via Chat or private message. If you have not interacted with them, then you cannot evaluate them.
After having a conversation with the member you wish to evaluate, you may then evaluate their profile page. You can view their profile by going to your "Contacts") page and clicking on their profile picture. You may also search for this member, or go to their profile by clicking their profile picture in a chat or a private message with them.
Then click on the tab "Evaluation" at the bottom left-hand side of their page. Finally, choose three key words out of the available choices of qualities that you feel describe them best. The chosen words will be posted in large letters in a word cloud.
Why evaluate other members?
Members can mutually evaluate one-another according to the evaluation rules. This includes an automatic disciplinary restraint for members who abuse this privilege. This makes the virtual dating environment more pleasant and courteous. Furthermore, it allows subjectivity and feedback in the dating process.
The evaluations are serious and have an effect on members of the community. We ask that you only give justified and thought-out evaluations.
Why can’t men evaluate women?
Mainly composed of women, writers, experts and communicators, the Gleeden team has chosen to put the power in the hands of the female members. In the case where there is a confidence or security problem, we think that this will permit a disciplinary auto restraint for members who make the virtue framework more pleasant and courteous. In addition, this system allows women to obtain subjective information on male members. It’s up to you men, to entice women to meet you!
How do I report abuse?
There are three ways to report abusive content:
- Click on the member's profile (for example, via the "Home Page") and click on the button "Report abusive user" under the member's photo.
