Cdate.com - Review by David - Overall Rating: 8.4 out of 10
C-date.com is a matchmaking site designed to match people who are interested in casual flings, hook-ups and short-term adult relationships.
C-date.com is designed to help people find casual matches, in particular hook-ups, one night stands, and other types of casual, short term adult encounters and relationships. The website works by having users create profiles with their personal information and preferences; other users can then find people who may match their own location and interests based on the information they provided to the website.
C-date.com has the standard features of most other dating and hookup websites. Users can send and receive messages to people they are interested in; there is also a chat room feature for private messages, which makes it easier to interact with potential matches on a real time level. Users can also search for matches based on key information.
Another key feature of C-date.com is the ability to narrow down matches who are looking for specific types of encounters--such as singles looking for singles, couples looking for singles, and so on. This makes it much easier to find matches without having to click on each profile to see what type of encounter that user is interested in.
C-date.com have both iOS and Android app. The app is simple but well designed and allows you to access all of the same functions that you would on the desktop website.
Pros and Cons
Niche user base. The website is specifically for people interested in casual flings and hook-ups, so you will be able to find matches who are interested in your specific encounter easily.
Website is easy to use. The website is well-designed and easy to navigate and use, making it simple to find matches and browse the website’s features.
Active paid member base. There are about 2 million members signed up for C-date.com, with the most active members being the paid membership base. This makes it possible to find a lot of interesting matches in your local area and beyond.
Free membership is very limited. The free membership is more or less pointless to anyone interested in making matches, since you can only receive messages and will not be able to respond to them.
