Introduction

 

Not everyone is ready for long-term, binding relationships. Flirt.com markets itself as a dating site for those looking for casual relationships. It is in the borderline between serious dating and adult sites for sexual encounters. The site offers a relaxed atmosphere focused on making connections and fun engagement—not necessarily marriages.

 

Flirt.com started with a free service for all female members. However, the site was later redesigned to offer a premium membership for all members in exchange for a safer dating experience. Still, female members with standard membership can send messages to other members for free.

 

The change was not well-received so the site decided to offer a 3-day trial membership at little cost. Flirt.com also has a Satisfaction Guarantee which allows users to avail of a partial refund if they do not find suitable matches or did not enjoy their time on the site.

 

The site is currently operated by Together Networks Limited which also operates other sites for casual flings like BeNaughty, NaughtyDate, and AffairDating. It is available in 20 different languages and connects people from a total of 45 countries around the world.

Flirt.com Prices and Membership Numbers

 

Flirt.com has a large user base of more than 1 million members. It also has high site activity with 4.84 million visits every month according to data site SimilarWeb’s research and 4,000 daily logins.

 

The user demographics of Flirt.com are very diverse. Most of the members came from the US which accounts to 300,000 of the members. It also has many visitors from other countries including Poland, Romania, and Hungary.

 

The gender ratio of the site is not equal but it is still in the acceptable level. Sixty percent of the members are female while the remaining 40 percent are male. Most users of Flirt.com are looking for casual fun and are in the younger age group.

The majority of the users are between 20-35 years old, however, this data might not be accurate. It is very noticeable that some members, especially the men, look older in their pictures than what is declared on their profiles.

 

Flirt.com offers free account registration. However, users can only enjoy a full online dating experience by upgrading membership. Below is the price list for premium membership.

 

 

Compared to other dating sites, these fees can be considered as average. If you are unable to decide on upgrading your account, Flirt.com offers a 3-day trial program for as low as 4.23 USD for all new members.

Features

 

Flirt.com Review image

Flirt.com has many chatting and interaction function. Here are the features which come with a standard account:

 

● Registration and Profile Creation

 

The profile only requires basic information but if you want to attract more members, you are free to share other information like physical characteristics, lifestyle, personal and cultural background as well as hobbies and interests. All these are optional and you can skip as many details as you like. The profile also includes pictures you like to share with other members.

● Matching and Interaction

 

Unfortunately Flirt.com has no advanced matching algorithms which allow automatic matching like other dating sites. If you are using a free account you will have to comb through a large list of profiles with its basic search filters to find suitable matches.
To initiate user interaction, you can send winks to other members by clicking the ‘wink’ button in their profile. This allows users to express direct interest to other members.

 

● Messaging

 

Users can receive as many messages, however, sending replies is another matter. Male members are given five free chats upon registration. The subsequent messages are locked and will be automatically deleted within 24 hours you upgrade to premium. On the other hand, female members are free to send messages to other members.

● Chat Rooms

 

To connect to more than one member, there are several available chat rooms like ‘Gay & Lesbian’ and ‘Naughty but Nice.’ These chat rooms have different topics ranging from sexuality to interests, as well as politics. Some of these chat rooms may contain sexual content.

 

● Photo Request

 

Members have the option to keep some of their photos private. These cannot be viewed by other members unless they send you a photo request, which you can either approve or deny, based on your discretion.

Upon upgrading to premium membership, users can have the following additional features:

 

● Unlimited messaging

 

to all members and ability to share photos and videos in chat. The messages you send will also get priority and appear first in a member’s inbox compared to free users.

 

● User preferences or ‘Looking for’ info displayed in the profile

 

● Advanced search option

 

● Option to turn on ‘Naughty Mode’ and ‘No Limits’ mode.

 

The ‘Naughty Mode’ allows users to unlock sexy pictures uploaded by other members, meanwhile ‘No Limits’ allows access to very explicit adult content by certain member s which are not viewable for free members

 

● Option to turn invisible while viewing profiles

 

Your username and photo won’t show in the member’s visitors list.

Flirt.com also has many unique special features. Paying members may have unlimited accesses to these features meanwhile, free members have certain usage limits:

 

● Like Gallery

 

Allows users to quickly evaluate members based on profile pictures by clicking either the ‘heart’ or the ‘x’ button, similar to Tinder. Below this feature, there are three tabs which show your mutual likes, members who liked you and members you liked.

 

● Flirtcast

 

This feature allows you to broadcast a message to all your matches in just one click.

 

● Request More Info

 

There are many members on the site with an incomplete profile. This feature is used to send a notification to another member to request more information or complete their profile.

 

● Video Uploads-

Upload 30-second videos to showcase yourself and gain more matches.

Ease Of Use

 

Flirt.com has a straightforward but creative design. The fonts are a little informal compared to mainstream dating sites. The buttons and tabs are arranged strategically. New users can easily find all the features with just one glance. It has high usability and easy to navigate.

 

For smartphone and tablet users, Flirt.com has a free mobile app for Android and iOS. It has a similar layout to the desktop version. Additionally, it allows users to get notifications when they receive a message. The app also allows users to pay subscription fees directly from their mobile phones for convenience.

 

Initial registration on the website is very quick and easy. After filling out your basic details, a one-click activation link will be sent to your email and you can directly use your account. With its many members, it is very easy to find suitable matches on the site.

 

However, there are many obvious fake profiles in the site. Even without uploading a profile photo, new users can receive quite a number of messages and videos from other users overnight.

 

Many of these are click baits used to encourage users to upgrade to paid membership. Schemes like these are often used in many dating sites. There are also members who use stock photos or pictures of celebrities in their profiles which could have been overlooked by the site security.

How Safe is Flirt.com?

 

Flirt.com is secured by Rapid SSL with up to 256 bit SSL encryption. It also has a very detailed Privacy Policy accessible on their website. It is important to read it before registering an account. The said policy includes the creation of a duplicate of your profile which the site gives to their partner sites unless you chose to decline.

 

You also have to think twice before uploading explicit photos. Like many other dating sites, their terms and conditions allow the site to use photos you upload in their site for marketing or other commercial purposes, royalty free.

 

The admin does not review every profile individually but photos need to be approved before they appear in the site. A good thing is, Flirt.com has a ‘Trusted’ feature which allows members to verify identity by uploading relevant documents. For safe browsing, the site has different ‘Safe Mode’ options. ‘Full’ safe mode only allows ‘Trusted’ members to contact you, while ‘Basic’ safe mode allows all-member contact, except those that are marked suspicions.

 

There are also ‘Report’ and ‘Block’ buttons available on the profiles of each member. Flirt.com ban profiles reported for fraudulent activities. Still, there are many fake users that escaped the safety nets. Flirt.com has safety dating tips which includes guidelines for communicating online and going for a face-to-face meeting.

 

You should take precaution in revealing personal information. When meeting offline, choose a busy, well-lit area. If you are a woman, avoid drinking too much alcohol which might make you incapacitated and never let your new acquaintance pick you up from your home or send you back.

How To Contact Flirt.com

 

To contact customer service, Flirt.com has an on-site support form which can let you send an email to its staff directly. You can also send an email to [email protected] or call their phone hotline at 18004896091. Premium members get priority on customer service.

Other Sites To Consider

 

Fling is unusual in the casual sector in that it straddles the ground between mainstream. It’s fun without being sleazy and that’s probably why the male / female ratio is more balanced than others on the sector.   Benaughty is operated by the same stable and is also worth looking at.

 

Fling- is a more explicit Casual dating site with about 50 million members and average fees. The members of the site vary greatly in terms of ethnicity and sexual orientation. The features of the site are somehow similar to social media sites where members can post status updates on their profiles. Nudity is permitted on the sites.

 

GetItOn- Like Flirt and Fling, this site is also for casual dating and sexual encounters. It has a large user base of 10 million members. It has upper moderate membership fees. It also uses tokens for those who want to use premium features without monthly subscriptions and points which are earned by participating in various activities in the site. The site has adult content from users.

 

Lisa18- A site for wild, no-strings-attached sexual encounters. Users of the site are from the younger age groups. The site is free for women and has about 13 million users. It has a privacy option which allows the user to blur profile photos which can only be seen by members approved by the user. The profiles in the site also include preferences for sexual encounters.

 

Lastly, the evergreen Adultfriendfinder covers all the casual dating bases and has large numbers for good local dating options.

Flirt.com Review Final Words

 

Flirt.com is very suitable for those who are not looking for serious relationships but don’t wish to enter the underworld search sex sites which border to prostitution and pornography.

 

The site promotes casual flings and sexual encounters without being overly vulgar. It has a flirty and fun vibe with a sophisticated atmosphere that isn’t apparent in many casual dating sites. It’s this ‘naughty but nice’ balance that is reflected in a much more balanced gender membership base. So many casual sites have a far greater membership bias towards men.

 

Though there may be fake accounts, there are also many quality profiles on the site. With enough patience, it is possible to grab hot dates for the weekend. The close gender ratio also boosts the chances of getting dates.

 

For those who are still hesitating, Flirt.com has a trial program. This lets users try the full features of the site for three days to help you test if the site is right for you. If you think it’s not suitable, then you can simply choose not to upgrade your account.

 

You will only lose less than 5 dollars instead of the regular fees. The site is also a Satisfaction Guarantee which allows users to contest a refund of the partial fees if you can’t get yourself a date within your subscription time.
