Date.com Review

Date.com Overview

Date.com is a simple, easy to use online dating site. The website has fewer flashy features than some dating sites but its minimal style means it’s easy to sign up, upload a photo and start looking for matches. Date.com allows the user to create a profile, search for members and flirt with others free of charge. For singles taking the first steps into the online dating world, Date.com is a reassuringly easy website to use; there’s no need to be particularly tech-savvy to get started and find a match. The user can pay to upgrade their subscription to send and receive messages from potential matches.

Date.com Features

Date.com is more basic than some other online dating sites but includes everything a user needs to get started and begin to search for matches. For users hoping to search for matches quickly and easily immediately after signing up, the basic search facility on Date.com is ideal. Date.com also allows singles to save their searches making it easy to pick up a previous search the next time the user logs in.

A key feature of Date.com is the Show Interest button. Using this feature allows Date.com members to show other users of the website that they’d like to find out more, and gives the individual the opportunity to view their profile. Send mega winks, make favourite lists, and look up suggested matches, all directly from the dashboard.

To use more features such as the messaging facility, users of Date.com need to upgrade their membership to a paid subscription.

Date.com Sign Up

As there are no lengthy personality tests to complete to sign up, users can begin searching for matches quickly. You will need to enter some information about you, your lifestyle and background, and also what you’re looking for in a match. From the point of signing up, Date.com encourages its members to upload a personal photo, asking users if they know that profiles with photos get 15 times more emails and interest from other members of the site.

The free membership of Date.com is unlimited meaning users are able to look around the site at leisure before committing to a paid subscription. Members receive better value for money when signing up for more than one month if they plan on using Date.com for longer than this time.

Date.com Ease of Use

Date.com is very easy to use. The basic interface of the website means that navigation is simple and does not require high levels of computer literacy. Date.com is suitable for singles venturing into the online dating world for the first time who may not be frequent users of the internet.

Date.com The Search

Our favorite part of Date.com is the search features. The Basic Search facility allows members to get started and view potential dates within moments, providing four profiles at the top of the search page of Featured Members which are clickable. For singles looking for specific traits, the Advanced Search provides more tailored results, selecting from a range of optional criteria such as Body Type, Ethnicity and Faith in order to find their perfect match. Searches can also be saved for future use. Personalised matches are not generated automatically but users can search for members with matching characteristics by selecting numerous tick boxes such as Career and Education.

Extra search functionality includes, who is currently online, who’s new on the site, whose birthday is it today, featured members on Date.com, members who want to chat live right now, and people who you have viewed or have viewed you.

Date.com Bottom Line:

Date.com feels really genuine, and offers a fun and simple way to find new Canadian singles online. We love the thorough search functionality and the extra dating tools such as Mega Winks.
