Flirt launched almost ten years ago, and now it is a part of the Cupid family. The platform claims to be one of the best places to meet singles. On the website, you can find all kinds of categories dating-wise.

Whether you are into traditional dating or a part of the LGBTQ+ community — you can have it all. The website has also dating and sex advice community.

To have the most relevant knowledge we put together the Flirt.com review to have a closer look at the whole platform. How easy it is to register and begin the singles search, how much does it cost, is there an app for mobile devices, and is flirt a good site overall.

Affordability

★★☆☆☆

Unlike other online dating platforms for singles, Flirt doesn’t have a free membership. The platform will ask your credit card details almost instantly.

Free services

There is a free way to create an account. Together with that, you will have a chance to send winks to other users, add the hottest users to your favorites list. Although to do anything else, you need to have a paid membership.

The platform does offer a free 3-day trial, but eventually, that means the 3-day trial will cost you $3.14, which is around $1.04 per day of usage. Not that free after all.

Paid services

With paid Premium membership, everything is more clear and simple. The monthly membership will cost you $0.96 per day, which is around $28/month.

Paid service allows viewing full-size photos of the members, unlimited chatting, premium support 24/7, and all the special features. The subscription also gets you to play “Cute or Not” game and upload videos. As well as all the above, you have a chance to expand your searching criteria with the “Looking for” option.

Audience quality

★★☆☆☆

Flirt.com has 1 million registered users, and over 150,000 members are active daily. 60% of users are males in their 20’s and 30’s. The other 40% are females.

Age distribution

The website has a strict policy about members to be over 18 years old. There are more female users who are over 18 and up to 34 years old. Males age is between 24 and 35 years old.

Fakes and scammers

The more people are registered at the platform, the higher the chance to run into fake profiles and scammers. We dug up more feedback regarding scammers, and it turns out that even if the person liked the platform, it is almost impossible to cancel the subscription.

Plus, there are a lot of bots who pretend to be smoking hot women who will send you one same message to create a number vision.

Interface

★★★☆☆

The website is smooth and well-designed. Every button is clear to understand, which makes it effortless to navigate. There is an “Upgrade” button in the upper right corner that makes it easy to proceed with payment. “Like Gallery” will be on the left and the searching filters are in the middle under the suggested profiles.

Signing up

Once you are at Flirt.com, you will see the registration form that is available for you. You can sign up within 2 minutes using your valid email address.

First, you choose who you are and who you are looking for. There are four options: a man looking for women, a woman looking for men, a man looking for men, and a woman looking for women. You choose the one that fits your preferences and move on to your age, email, and password. Also, there is an option to set your exact location.

To verify your account and continue on the platform, you will be sent a verification email with an activation code. That might take 5-10 minutes. For us, it took two emails and 20 minutes to receive the activation code. So in total, it took 22 minutes to register.

Keep in mind that the platform is international, and some counties might need a VPN to access the website

Profile

When the new profile is activated, the website suggests adding more personal details to get more matches and personalize your preferences.

First, you need to upload a photo and below you will see advice on what to avoid on your profile photo: no children, and no pictures without people. Try not to add group photos — they are also not welcomed. In case you don’t have any pic to upload, you can use a webcam to create a new photo. Then it will be sent for the approval, and moderators can ask a few questions.

Then just a few more steps left, put down status or some particular information about yourself, expectations from possible matches, and preferences in general. You will have 140 characters to fill everything in.

After that, you can choose your ethnicity, body type, and hair color. Anything from above is optional. Although, your profile might stay hidden till you upload at least one photo.

Searching

When your profile is verified, you can begin the search. There is a “Looking for” section that allows you to have even more possible matches with a similar account that you are searching for.

There is no particular strategic algorithm, though to get you the best possible matches. It is not that bad with location and people near you, and the search filters that can also help you out to narrow it down.

In the search filters, you can choose profile only with photo, orientation, ethnicity, body type, hair, and eye color. Choose several options at once to make your search wide.

Chat

Messaging is available for Premium membership users. There are also winks that you can send to other users regarding your subscription. So that makes two ways to start the dialog.

There is a legend that once you are a new sign up user, you will get five free chats, but we didn’t see the opportunity to message anyone till we upgrade the free plan up to a paid subscription.

Mobile app

There is no Flirt mobile app, but the website suits any mobile device browser. Which allows you to use it like if there would be a Flirt app.

Security and privacy

★★★★☆

The platform verifies valid email addresses to receive an activation code. Without the code, it is impossible to create an account. Once you have confirmed your email with a code, you have to upload a photo that will be directed to Flirt.com operators for further reviews.

You can be asked a few personal questions to verify your personality. It is okay if you don’t feel like doing it all right away. You can always skip that step, leave it for later, and go ahead and check the platform before providing any personal details. Although, without it, you will not be allowed to send winks to another account. It is most likely that without the profile picture procedure as a paid Premium member, you might get way less possible matches than with a picture.

Nevertheless, the platform seems to have all these policies and even operators to check up on their members, and yet there are so many fake profiles and possible scammers who are definitely not up to a face-to-face meet up.

Hookup chance

★☆☆☆☆

The platform doesn’t give us the impression that it is full of potential matches and sex hookups. It is more suitable for online sexting with daily payment. Within a 3-day trial, there could be over 20 people who seem to be interested in keeping the conversation going. But once you upgrade to a Premium membership, there will be way fewer chats. Even then there is a chance that you might talk with a bot.

Matching algorithm

Besides, there is no particular matching algorithm rather than a simple six filters. All of those will only narrow it down to a physical type but not according to your sexual preferences or your end game which could be a hook up with no strings attached or something more mature.

The real and personal hookup chance, in this case, is almost close to zero
