If you like your dating sites that little bit naughty, but not too much so, then you may want to give Click&Flirt a go - not least as it is totally free for women. All of the common dating site features - from messages to winks - are present and correct, as are the likes of a friends list and activity feed that you might not have found elsewhere. You can even send 'flirtcast' messages to potential local dates. But the site is also pretty easy to use, with a no-nonsense layout that puts prospective dates front and centre.
The flirtcast feature is simple to use, with certain preset messages being provided that you can then beam out to the local men or womenfolk. It is prominently placed at the top left of the main page after you log in, alongside photos and previews of fellow site users. There's an activity feed letting you know who is ready to chat, as well as a friends list to which you may add those who take your fancy.
Click Browsed Me to see who has been eyeing up your profile lately, adjust your settings - including a host of notification options - or complete your profile, letting the world know what you're about, including details on your lifestyle and appearance and what kind of person you're looking for. It's also easy to see who winked at you or sent you a message, although men will only be able to see beyond the first few words of each message if they upgrade. This site definitely rewards those who shell out a bit of dosh to join in the fun.
The default page shows local dates, but this can be changed to those who are presently online or have just joined the site.
Signing up is free, and you aren't asked for loads of details. Just input your gender, birthday, email, password and postcode, click the activation code that you are sent in your email and you can get involved basically straight away. You can browse the site freely with a largely bare profile - as if you'd want to keep it that way. However, don't expect to be visible in search unless you have a photo. To make use of the site properly, sign up - the £4.98 three day trial is a great place to start.
Real names and exact locations aren't shown in profiles, and the fact that a lot of the site isn't accessible to non-paying male users provides further built-in protection. The site has also provided a guide on 'How to Meet Safely Online', so that you can adopt some common sense measures.
There's the option to pay just £1.66 a day for a three day trial, while there are also one month, three month and six month packages. Mobile users, meanwhile, can take advantage of a £30 monthly membership or £10 weekly subscription.
|OPTIONS||TOTAL COST||COST PER MONTH||SAVINGS|
|3-Month Membership||£89.97||£29.99||25% (£30)|
|6-Month Membership||£119.94||£19.99||50% (£120)|
|Monthly Membership (Mobile)||£30||£30||-|
|Weekly Subscription (Mobile)||£10||£10||-|
Simplicity was evidently a watchword in the design of the Click&Flirt site, as you really do see only exactly what you need: a nice grid of photos of potential dates and a top of the page menu allowing you to easily view who messaged, browsed or winked at you, in addition to your activity feed and friends list. On the top right of the main page is your photo and options to edit your profile, adjust your settings, contact the site or log out. The search functionality is also prominent and easy to understand.
Search is as simple or as complicated as you like. You can keep things basic, searching for dates in a certain age group in your local area, or you can narrow things down with such parameters as ethnic origin, marital status, body type, hair colour, religion, education... the list goes on. The search bar remains fixed as you scroll down the page, so it couldn't be easier to experiment with different search criteria. You can also search by people nearby, recently joined or online now. But as mentioned above, to be visible in search yourself, you'll need a photo.
