Registration Process - Top 5 Dating Sites Reviews

Registration Process

Registration is very simple. All you need to do is fill in your name, birthdate, the gender which you’re interested in, and your e-mail. Afterwards you will receive a confirmation e-mail and that’s it, you can start building your profile.
Registration Price Options
A free account enables you do a great deal more than you’re allowed to do on other sites. You can create a profile, create favorite lists, and send and receive unlimited winks to let others know that you’re interested in them. You will also be notified if someone added you to their favorites, or if they attempted to send you a message.

Registration Price Options

However, in order to actually read the messages you receive and answer them, you need to pay to upgrade your account. One month subscription costs £29.95, while a monthly payment for a yearly subscription will cost you only £12.50. You can also subscribe for 3 or 6 months, and pay £19.99 or £15.00 each month.

There are other special features that cost money such as making your profile appear at top of relevant searches in order to guarantee that more people will see your profile.

Another interesting feature allows people who haven’t upgraded their account to answer your messages, or even start a conversation with you, which obviously widens your ability to contact others. Such features range from £2.99 to £7.49 per month.

Special Features


Something Serious allows you to build a very unique and extremely detailed profile. That way you can find a better match for yourself, and others can get to know you better. On top of the usual profile information you can describe your appearance in a very detailed manner.
Your profile also includes a variety of questions designed to make it more unique, informative and fun. Questions such as “what is the scariest thing that you have ever done?” or “if you won the lottery what would you buy first?” can allow you to express yourself or help you show off your funny side. These questions are optional, but are a good way to break the conventional profile pattern.

Information browser

When you log in, you have an information browser at the bottom of the page. It conveniently helps you to keep track of all of the information you need: who emailed you, sent you a wink, added you as a favorite, who viewed your profile, your current chats and of course allows you to search for others.

Searching Possibilities

This site has a very unique search system. It has the option to search for people in a particular age range and a particular distance from a residential neighborhood. You can add cool filters to your search to both limit your search and find someone with similar preferences. For example, you can search for someone who doesn’t drink, doesn’t smoke, of particular religious belief, or has similar hobbies to you. You can also narrow the search by limiting it to people who are currently online, so you can start a conversation immediately. Once you find someone, you can mark that you are interested in meeting them, so you can find out if the feeling is mutual before even starting a conversation. You can also find people that the site recommends according to the information you entered about yourself.

Dating Dairy

You can also write your thoughts and feelings in a dairy so others can get to know you better. So now you can find someone based on a deeper initial first impression.


After you register to the site you will see people’s pictures in a bar at the top of the page. You can add your picture so that everyone can see you. This allows you to find someone who you might not have considered otherwise.

Mobile Phone App

The site works great on cell-phones and is organized conveniently. You can even check out who is near you, and start chatting with people who you may meet sooner rather than later.
