If you are looking for fun and excitement, with no expectation of commitment or a serious long-term relationship, then you really can't overlook Loveaholics. This site is definitely at the saucier end of the online dating spectrum, so get ready to get hot under the collar, exchange photos and flirt to your heart's content. Proudly mentioned on the site is the fact that women can message men for free.
The features of Loveaholics are very much geared to flirty fun, ranging from various search functions and chat to the chance to wink, favorite and send messages. There's a page where you can see recent activity, both your own - including past profiles you have browsed - and that of others who may have viewed your profile or contacted you. Try SMS messaging, inbox chat, or head to the chatrooms to see who’s around for flirty fun.
Another definite standout of the site is the level of explicit material on the site, which brings us nicely to the Naughty Mode feature, which allows you to choose from one of three modes: Normal, Sexy or No Limits. The default option is No Limits, whereby you can see all kinds of photos and videos, including those with explicit nudity. But you can also tone things down with the Sexy option, which tends to restrict the nudity to topless at most, while the Normal mode omits nudity altogether.
There's also a little thing called Safe Mode - but more of that later. The search options allow you to be really demanding about who exactly appears on your page, while you can also take to the Like or Not page to be presented with a parade of members to give the thumb up or down to.
You can join as a single man, woman or couple, and just need to submit your birthday, email address, password and postcode. Once you've activated your account, you'll be prompted to reveal more about yourself, including what you are looking for, although you are free to skip all of this.
It's at this point that you can also leave a message that can be sent to your best matches for free. You can view profiles and photos immediately, but to really start making the most of the site, try upgrading - the six month option looks especially good to us.
Safe Mode comes in three flavours: Off, Basic and Full. The former allows all members to contact you, Basic is the same - except those members that the site's safety team has flagged as suspicious - and Full permits contact only from Trusted Members, and is available solely to Paid Members. You can also block individual members from contacting you. Loveaholics encourages all members to choose a safe password, and checks that you are over 18 before you join.
Women chat for free, and can spend a few dollars for a highlighted profile and some other benefits if they wish. For men, full subscription packages allowing you to chat and view photos and enjoy full functionality of the site reduce in cost the longer you sign up for, with the exception of the $5.97 3 day trial. After this, 1 month is $47.98, 3 months is $32.33 per month, and 6 months is the most competitive, for $22.99 per month.
Those who sign up to a casual dating site like this tend to already know their way around dating sites, and this one won't trouble them. The design is simple and attractive, with the page being mostly taken up by attractive profile photos to scroll through. Toggle between Photo Quality, Online Now and New Members to see different members, or toy around with the clear search bar at the top of the page. Nor are all of the settings that you will ever need difficult to locate - just click on the gear image at the top right of your page.
If it isn't entertaining enough for you to simply scroll through the endless profiles, you do also have search options - a lot of them. Search for men, women or couples, or by age group or location. Alternatively, plunge deeper, with Advanced Search. Look for those with a photo, or on the basis of hair colour, ethnicity, orientation, how well-endowed they are or whether they play safe.
It's also possible to display only new members or those who are online now, while the Photo Quality option places the very best photos front and centre.
Loveaholics is a fun and sexy place to meet Canadian singles online. We love the chatrooms, the advanced search and the fact that women chat for free, an incentive for both sexes!
