Date.com is a basic online dating site with a simple sign-up process and easy site navigability. To sign up users submit their basic information including their country, birthday, and a username and password. Non-paying members can add up to nine photos to their profile which can be edited using the Date.com photo editing tool.
After the membership is registered, the individual is asked to complete his profile including basic information about physical appearance, family status, location, information about him/herself (interests, personality, favorite books and movies) and a short summary that describes what kind of partner the person is searching for.
Basic members can search for members at their leisure. There are no matchmaking activities on the site, so members must create their own matches by reviews of other members’ profiles as they identify those members who have the highest chance of being a true match. There is a basic search and, for members who upgrade their membership to a paid membership, an advanced search.
The Date.com basic search includes the ability to search for a matching age range, location. The advanced search includes search functions for ethnicity and religion, body type, education/career goals, income, relationship status, smoking or drinking and even horoscopes.
Other upgraded member perks include the ability to send virtual gifts, engage in a chat room and forum and see who has viewed the member’s profile.
Date.com does not create matches, but it does facilitate match messages. Non-upgrade members do not have any communication options beyond the “Show Interest” button. An upgrade is required to make direct contact with a member. All members may submit complaints if someone contacts them inappropriately.
