Whichdate.co.uk make sure to use a number of factors when reviewing and contrasting the different dating sites in the UK. These different criteria go towards our final score, each aspect is detailed below to help clear up our scoring system:
COST/DISCOUNTS - How much does the site cost? What features do you get for the price? Is it worth the money when compared to other similar sites? What do you get for free? Do they offer discounts at all?
USERS - How many users are on the platform? This is key because you dont want to sign up to be left with no matches or no one to look at / speak to.
SUPPORT - How do the support team help with any questions? Do they help via social media? Are they active for customer support?
MOBILE - Alot of users now use dating sites exclusively on mobile and via apps, you dont want to be sat behind a desktop using it, so the overall mobile user experience is important.
EASE OF USE - If its hard to use, then you will get sick of it, so this is key
MATCHES - both the number and quality of users is vitally important
SAFETY - you HAVE to stay safe when using online dating, so we make sure to only promote the most safe sites and I make a note if there are any concerns.
FEATURES - What exactly you get for your money, do they update their service regularly with new features
FREE TRIAL - Do they offer a free trial, how long, how does it compare to others.
