DatingDirect is one of the most popular dating sites in the UK. It has a huge number of members, (about 4 million), great search facilities and it's full of useful features such as live chat, video and winks. It's closest competitor, Match (you can read our Match.com Review) is an alternative to DatingDirect, and if I had to choose between the two, then my choice would be Match. Why? Well, when I was signed up to both, I got more emails/winks on match from other match members living in my area. On DD I got quite a few emails from people who were in completely different country or even continent,a bit of a time waster really.
Creating your profile
One of the easier dating sites in terms of creating your profile. Lots of predefined lists help you get through the process of creating your profile relatively painlessly. You still need to come up with personal ad, and as always putting in a bit of effort at this stage is well worth it.
DatingDirect has excellent search facilities. Not only can you do a quick search, you can also do advanced searches. So if a 5'8", blonde haired, brown eyed, non smoker, living in London is your hearts desire, you'll be able to find them! Searching on keywords is another great way to find someone who likes scuba diving or mountain climbing.
One of the great features DatingDirect has, is instant messenger, allowing you to chat live with
other members, so you can instantly get to know someone rather than having to rely on playing email
ping pong for days on end. Video chat is available too, which is great as long as it's not first thing in the morning before
you've had time to comb your hair and get out of your PJs!
Currently you can sign up for 3 days free - worth a try!
