Loveaholics : Dating Site Review
Loveaholics is a self-confessed flirt’s dream. It oozes sex appeal and casual fun from the minute you’re logged on. The focus of the open-minded site is clearly high enjoyment and low pressure. Good for people looking for casual partners but who might also be open to a longer relationship following on from that. This site has open/group chat-rooms as well as the standard messaging service so you really can chat to anyone who takes your fancy! If you like to explore your options and expand your boundaries then Loveaholics is where you should be.
- Video Chat
- Offers options to meet other couples when you sign up so can be used to look for any combination of partners.
- You can send a pre-written message - called an Ice-Breaker - if you’re not sure how to approach someone. These range from slightly flirty to downright outrageous!
- Set your naughty mode: you can decide how naughty you’d like to be and how much you want to see of everyone else’s naughty side! As a paying member, you can choose from Normal which shows you just head and shoulder pictures, Sexy which may contain topless or ‘flirty’ pictures or No Limits which will contain explicit pictures and below-the-waist nudity.
- Women can send messages for free
- Profile picture and video: as well as a picture you can upload a profile video.
- Advanced search: a tick-box system allowing you to search by categories such as orientation, ethnicity, drinking/smoking habits, relationship status, even how well-endowed you want someone to be!
- Flirtcast – once you upload a photo you can broadcast a flirty message to everyone who comes up in your search results.
Very easy and quick – you fill in whether you are male or female, what you’re looking for, your date of birth, your area and post code. Once you have checked your email and confirmed your account through their confirmation email, you are signed up and ready to go. Depending on what kind of account you want you can choose to be a verified member. This unlocks certain features, such as what you can see of other members and how fully you can communicate with them.
The site is free for women – when you verify your identity the site automatically upgrades you to platinum membership, which allows you to access all the features of the site. If you’re female you won’t even be able to see the price plans. If you’re a man, check out the prices below:
|OPTIONS||TOTAL COST||COST PER MONTH||SAVINGS|
|3-Day Membership||£5.97||£1.99 / day|
|3-Month Membership||£101.97||£33.99||27% / month|
|6-Month Membership||£137.94||£22.99||50% / month|
Ease of Use:
This site is not the easiest to use – it’s very busy and has a lot of flashing icons. There is a toolbar that runs across the top with picture icons but no words. Although it’s very chat focused, the way messages are categorized is actually more confusing than helpful because there are so many different options. Browsing and searching are relatively easy once you find the correct section of the site. The advanced chat option was quite complicated but there is always the basic chat option available.
Initial results appear by area in your basic search, and you can filter your options with advanced search criteria. These are quite extensive and some are tongue in cheek, some more serious. You can also use the “like or dislike” feature, which allows a quick view of one profile at a time. This might be easier for those overwhelmed by how many people there are. The advanced search is worth doing to narrow down the vast array of people presented to you otherwise! Add a photo (and a video if you’re feeling brave) and verify your profile for maximum presence in other users’ search results.
