Date.com Review

About.com Rating 3.5 Star Rating




Avalanche LLC

With more than eight million members (and growing daily), Date.com is a huge, general dating site that caters to the under 40 set (with 1/3 of its users under 30). However, their sign up process takes longer than any other dating site in the largest dating sites category - save eHarmony, which takes more than an hour because of its personality matching questionnaire.

Overview from Date.com

"Date.com is an online dating community dedicated to helping over 8 million members develop the right relationship for them since 1997. Members can browse the site, post a profile, and include a photograph for free! When the member's search identifies someone he or she would like to contact, they can upgrade to a Gold membership and send email, instant message and chat online."

What a Date.com Membership Includes

A paid membership with Date.com offers the standard dating site services, such as the ability to create a profile (which is lengthy because most questions require an answer), contact other members through chat, email or instant message.

A free membership with no expiry date offers curious singles the opportunity to access almost all of Date.com's site features except for their computerized matching system, email and/or video contact with other users, or access to the chat rooms.

Men comprise the majority of Date.com members (60%) with users in most international locations. Date.com offers matching for all sexual orientations, and for those looking for friendship, casual dating, a serious relationship or marriage.

Unique Features of Date.com

Date.com offers a free toolbar installation so users can surf the web while still showing up as present in the Date.com database and for members to connect with them in real-time chat. The toolbar also alerts users immediately when they receive an email from another member.

Date.com Costs

$24.95 USD for 1 month, $74.95 USD for 6 months or $99.95 USD for 1 year. Date.com accepts snail mail payments as well as Visa, MasterCard, Discover, JCB and American Express.
