MeetMe boasts more than 4.5 million daily active users, 190,000+ new members per day, and 74+ million chat messages sent per day.
This online dating service is feature rich, with fun games, and messaging options that let people get to know each other even better while having more fun too. Other profile features include the following:
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.
Users can download the MeetMe app through Google Play or the App Store. Both apps have a large number of reviews and high ratings:
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
