  • Matches - Find your Secret Admirer with the "Match" tool.

Local Emphasis

MeetMe allows members to search for matches locally that live within so many miles of their set location. This allows for smoother dates when members decide to meet up in real life. Local dates help members get to know people they may be interested that already live nearby, rather than focusing on people everywhere. Most online dating sites allow users to search locally but Meet Me, makes this the main focus of their website and while on the member profile. 

High Mobile Ratings

Users can download the MeetMe app through Google Play or the App Store. Both apps have a large number of reviews and high ratings: 

  • MeetMe: Chat & Meet New People for Android.This app has 715k reviews and an average rating of 4.2/5 stars 
  • MeetMe - Chat and Meet New People for iOS. This app has 86k reviews and an average rating of 4/5 stars

Many users say the app is safe and enjoyable - an overall great way to meet people. Major complaints include that the app frequently freezes and crashes.

COPPA Compliant

MeetMe.com is in compliance with COPPA (Children's Online Privacy Protection Act). The MeetMe system is made to restrict any children/teens under 13 years old from using the site, which keeps the site more safe overall.  

Average Safety and Verification

Users can block and report a person, but MeetMe does not perform background checks or sweep their site for bots. Luckily, to join the site, customers must verify their email address or social profile - but this is very easy information to fake. One unique feature MeetMe has the SocialVerify Badge. It is used to authenticate profiles and rid the site of bots. SocialVerify is free and only takes connected to a Facebook account with at least 50 friends. The site is littered with spammy ads, which makes the site look even less trustworthy and raises some red flags.

The Bad

  • Limited User Information
  • Need to Upgrade

Limited User Information

Information on the member profiles is pretty standard and does leave much room to add answers or to explain more about themselves to other members.  This site has more of a friend approach and isn't set up to be the most specific matching or dating site available. This site is meant to spotlight singles and give them an opportunity to meet up and interact online. The mobile version of MeetMe is loaded with ads and seems to offer limited search options compared to what users get on the actual website. 

Need to Upgrade

Although MeetMe is free to join there are features that only VIP members get access to. Without paying some of the features won't even work. Paid features include more "lunch money," increased priority with "owned" photos, more match potential, more games with max limits, and increases on profile and friends.

The Bottom Line

This is a fun dating site if customers are looking to join online daters today.  This is one of the most popular online dating sites available today and offers unique dating options just by providing more casual ways for members to connect and meet new people. The app is available for download on Android, iPhone, and iPad devices in the Google Play and iTunes store. MeetMe is easy to use and offers fun features that help members connect to dates quickly and casually. MeetMe strives to keep people connecting in fun and engaging ways and creating genuine relationships.

However, users should be aware that while the app and site are free to join, some features won't work. Also, the site has spammy ads which might raise some red flags. Overall, the site doesn't cater to just dating, those looking to chat or make friends are also welcome. If customers are looking for a genuine dating site, MeetMe might not be the answer. However, the site does seem to have some potential for users in the dating aspect.

If I could give MeetMe zero stars, I would. They have a huge problem with fake profiles--I'd say at least half the accounts on there are fake. The remaining 50% largely consists of people promoting their IG/SC profiles and trying to get followers, or prostitutes looking to turn tricks. MM must know about the problem, it's just that they refuse to do anything about it because fake profiles still mean increased traffic and more members.

There are some fraudsters opening accounts with other peoples photos and names to extort money from people. I have encountered many of them and most of them are from Nigeria. So ladies especially be care those you chat with. Some will use military men photos to pretend its them. they use white male often. always ask questions and check their response well. I just feel the app should be able to suspect a phone number or internet source that open several account with them and also check their photos and background if possible. The app has become a playground to these criminals to use to dupe people.

I signed up with the facebook using validate with facebook feature. i didnt create a profile or upload pics. it seems facebook allowed them access to my picture folder within facebook, meetme is using something for m profile pic that is not consistent with my FB profile pic, nor is it a likeness of me, i learned this latter same day when i started getting replies. I am unable to log back into site no matter what i do. also tried creating a new account using another email address just so i could see my profile as others see it. so i am a member of a dating site that i cant log into, they are showing inaccurate representation of me and nothing i can do about it. also i bought there stock about a week before signing up, there stock is performing better than their website

It would appear that Meetme is effectively stealing account information from unsuspecting Facebook users, through vacuous links to a site about Horoscopes. I know of at least four people who clicked this link and within days started getting email notifications from Meetme. When they opened the mails it took them to their account on Meetme, an account they didn't open. More disturbingly there were photos of their family and children stolen too. Anyone who has spent more than 20 minutes on Meetme will be aware that this is NO PLACE to post photos of children!! The site is rife with scammers and predators! It is also worrying that last year Meetme changed its TOC to say that if you upload photos, the site effectively owns them even if you delete your account, your pics will stay on there servers for them to do with what they wish. There are literally thousands of these accounts being opened every week on Meetme and most are unaware that their Facebook profile has been abused in this way. The app information says you have to be 17 to download it yet the TOC says children as young as 13 can open accounts. The mild sexual content they describe is actually being inundated on a daily basis with men sending pics of their gentialia! The block button is useless unless the person you block, blocks you too. There is absolutely no support from admin and Meetme are only concerned with membership numbers. They also frequently advertise sex and dating sites. Please, please keep your kids away from here!

Seems like everyone gets on here to complain. It’s not a bad app and better than most others. You can always find entertainment on there.

Been on this site for a few yrs. Apparently they delete your profile and you wont be able to try making a new account. I made friends with a couple. One was a 76 yr old who looked up to me and we shared our expeirencek with this horrible site. I feel bad we no longer have connection. She had gone some serious series of cancer treatments and now this horrid site has deleted our profiles and any communications with any of our old friends.

i have had two accounts by this site, both closed for no reason. what kind of site takes your account for talking about football and work, with friends. and their only response is that i violated TOS, how I'm not sending nude pics, or stalking anyone or harassing anyone, I'm talking about football. If your suppose to meet people using this site that's great but it goes no further after that, no phone numbers, or email address or contact information is allowed to be exchanged, Someone complains about you and they accept it and ban you with no reason for it.

They don’t deserve any stars. I was on here for less than 24hrs & they closed my account for violation of terms. All I did was reply to messages. I want back in my account so I can delete my pictures. This site needs to be shut down & I will do everything I can to make sure that happens.

I've been a member for awhile and they keep blocking me from sending messages! I've been blocked for a week and just got back on today and sent two message and was blocked again for sending too many message for an entire month. How are you suppose to find someone if you can't send message? This site really sucks...

I would rate this site below zero. It is beyond just and awful online dating site--it's actively diminishing the success of our society. One trip through the new feed will demonstrate exactly why--the blind and stupid leading the blind and stupid.

The app is buggy and there are a lot of chat bots. I was getting several messages a day from bots and fake profiles.
