Easy to Use
When you start using the website, you will see that unlike other dating sites, YouDate has no annoying pop-ups appearing. Nonetheless, you will see a few ads since this is the way they make money. On the home page, you will see different profiles appearing, but you can go to the “search” tab for a more precise search. If you click on the “online” tab, you will see all the members who are online now. If you want to send a message to any member, you just have to click on the “chat with me” button on their profile. You can choose to be notified when they have read your message, and you also can make video calls if you want. When someone viewed your profile or added you on their favorite list, it will appear on your “view profile” tab. You also can send winks (similar to like) to the different members, and whenever someone sent you a wink, it will appear on your “who likes me” tab. If you want, you can also choose to receive an email notification whenever someone sent you a wink.
When you go to the search tab, you will see that there are a lot of different filters you can apply to find singles with a better compatibility level. You can select the basic information (gender, age range, location, users with photos only). Still, you can also select more advanced filters such as physical appearance (ethnicity, height, body type) or lifestyle (a type of sense of humor, how frequently they exercise, their daily diet, how often they are drinking and smoking). You can also select filters regarding their professional life (education, employment status, current annual income) and their interests (sports, common interests, hobbies and crafts, political interests, etc.)
Safety & Security
When it comes to safety, everybody can register without having to verify his/her email address. And when you upload a picture, it seems like there is no verification process of the picture either. Consequently, it is possible that you could find fake profiles there. However, there are several articles with useful tips regarding safety when dating on the website, and you can always block or report any member who has a suspicious or offensive behavior.
So to summarize, if you want a simple and fast way to meet other singles, you might want to register to this website. It only takes you a few minutes to register, and you don’t risk wasting any money anyway because everything is 100% free. Also, even though the website design is a bit outdated, it is still user-friendly, and all the most important features are available. We would simply recommend you to be careful regarding who you will talk to because you might find a few fake profiles on the website.
