DateHookup.com is an online dating website that has been around since the 1990s. DateHookup offers singles looking to date more casually, a place in the online dating community. Men and women of all ages, who are perhaps tired of the traditional dating sites, can sign up for datehookup.com and find a new dating experience. While some members are looking for long-term relationships, many of DateHookup’s members are young singles just looking for a fun and casual dating experience.

*As of May 9, 2018 DateHookup discontinued their services. 

As a result, the information in this review may now be inaccurate or out of date. We recommend looking into other top-rated online dating sites.

The Good

  • Free To Use
  • High Traffic
  • Easy To Use

Free To Use

DateHookup.com is available for free; anyone can become a member either by going to the website or downloading the mobile app. Not only is it free to become a member on DateHookup.com, but all basic features are free. Members can:

  • Send and receive messages
  • Chat
  • Browse profiles
  • Quick search

There is a subscription, VIP option with DateHookup.com. This subscription has users pay and allows users to block ads and see who likes them. While this information may be really important to some, it is not something everyone cares to know.

If you're looking to meet new people or simply want to try out a different online dating website, then datehookup.com is a viable option.

High Traffic

In 2015, the site was generating 1.2 million visits per day. This number doesn’t even include the number of members visitors on the mobile app. Other online dating sites in the dating community don’t often get this much traffic.

Easy To Use

The site is relatively simple and straight forward. The entire registration process is simple and does not take a lot of time. DateHookup.com also offers its members forums with online dating information, tips, and DateHookup.com members.

The Bad

  • No Verification or Safety
  • No Matching Algorithm
  • Fake Users
  • Outdated Mobile App

No Verification or Safety

First, Datehookup.com doesn't even require online users to create a profile on their site before browsing profiles. Second, after a user does create an account, there is no verification. Although an email is entered in, it is not required that the email address is verified before browsing profiles, messaging, and setting up a profile. They have no social verification, photo verification, or background checks on members. While members can block other users, there is no practical way to report users. There are numerous accounts of fake or inappropriate profiles that are never taken down. This leads us to believe that DateHookup does not monitor its site.

No Matching Algorithm

DateHookup is not a niche site; they do not offer personality quizzes for users, or any kind of matching algorithm. The only way for users to find potential partners is by browsing by gender, age, age range, location, and how recently they were online. Members can’t even search by a match's attributes. This lack of a matching algorithm leads us to believe that it is difficult to form potentially long-lasting relationships.

Fake Users

Many users share reviews online claiming that DateHookup.com is a scam and that online daters shouldn't even waste their time with the service. There have been some cases where members had their pictures taken from the site then reposted to fake profiles. While actual daters have tried to use DateHookup.com they didn't get many real dates out of the service. With an entirely free service, it is fairly common that the site attracts more scammers and trolls.

Outdated Mobile App

DateHookup.com's mobile apps haven’t been updated since 2014. This app is too outdated especially with the online/mobile threats going on today. Anyone that downloads this application may put themselves at risk to hackers or any other mobile threats.

The Bottom Line

It is important to remember that Datehookup.com is an adult dating site. It is a decent option for online daters that are just looking for a free alternative to add to their online dating experience. However, be careful what information you include on your member profile because some users have had their photos or profile information manipulated into a duplicate or fake profile. Several Datehookup reviews have also stated that the website is a "feeder" for other dating websites.

We do not recommend using DateHookup if you are only looking to form meaningful or long-term relationships. The site is better suited for those looking for a casual dating site. Additionally, the lack of site security, negative reviews, and nonexistent matching algorithm make it difficult to trust DateHookup. We believe there are plenty of other options when it comes to online dating.

https://DateHookup.dating is a good way to meet new people and make new friends. Possibly make a spouse, a lot of the times I found that most girls were bots.

This is really a "feeder" for other sites. Those sites have stricter requirements. However,for many who want to meet people it has value. Adults often do not have the interaction they would like. Because it is really free that is an advantage.

DateHookup is a pretty plane site. I went on a few dates when I was in the dating scene and they were nice people, but overall the site itself is pretty boring. The site led me to other sites where I was able to eventually meet the love of my life, but overall the site could improve by adding more features (matching, surveys, etc.).
