Visit dating service SiteDating bills themselves as the UK’s number 1 internet dating service. As you would expect the site includes all the basic functions common to all dating sites, with a few additional features thrown in.

Setting up your profile is easy. Some of the questions are more specific than we’ve seen on other sites – such as your actual weight (though you can say that you’d rather not say), musical taste, personality traits, etc.

The site is easy to navigate, and includes a vast number of possible search criteria – useful with such a large number of profiles to trawl through.

You are able to view up to three profiles a day for free, but once you’ve browsed this small allowance you’ll inevitably be frustrated that you can’t take a peek at more, so it is worth joining if you’re serious.

Other features:

‘Find Love’ money back guarantee: you can get your fees reimbursed, subject to terms and conditions, if you fail to find that special someone after a year. Make sure you tick the ‘Find Love’ box in your profile.

Mobile dating: allows you to monitor you account and talk with other members via your mobile phone. events: in person encounters and events that include nights out, courses and activities with other DatingDirect singles.


Prices: Creating a profile, basic search facilities are free. You can also view up to 3 other members profiles per day for free. For full functionality you will need to upgrade to a Premier Pass which allows

  • unlimited views of other members profiles
  • access to ‘perfect match’ searches
  • One on one online conversations or video calls via Messenger (unlimited)
  • Unlimited email contacts
  • Save your favourite searches
  • Ad-free surfing
  • Video intros
  • you can choose to only let people contact you who match your criteria
  • Available/unavailable mode (a privacy function so that members don’t know if you’ve viewed their profiles, and allows you to appear as unavailable to chat while you are browsing)
  • And most importantly, you can’t read any emails from other members without becoming a member

Premier Pass is available is 1 month (£22.80), 3 month (£44.97), and 6 month (£59.94) options–the latter is a a saving of 55% over the one month Price.

Featured Dating Direct Customer Review

Veteran dater from Milton Keynes, 10 March, 2009

I’ve tried quite a few of the dating sites, and remains my favourite. I think if you’re looking for someone very specific – like of the same religion, or a single parent or something then some of the smaller niche sites are better, but if you’re open to offers then the big ones like this one let you kind of blitz the dating market and see as many opportunities as possible – maybe increasing your chances of finding a few real definite-maybes. I’ve joined 4 of the big sites and its actually quite hard work keeping up with it all, but really fun too.
