Our Review

There is no doubt that CharmDate is one of the oldest running dating sites today. It has been around since 1998, helping millions find their ideal partners and create lasting relationships. 

The site is owned by the Qpid Network, a company that runs a number of niche dating sites like AsiaMe.com, LatamDate.com, and ChLove.com. Just like these sites, CharmDate has a specific target market. It is said to be one of the most popular online dating sites that allow men from across the world to meet and match with gorgeous Ukrainian and Russian women. It is also known for being a foreign marriage website where people find love. 

Majority of the ones who want to be a part of this community are men who are searching for their Eastern European match. Because it has a rather specific qualification for women, the site has become more open to men.

  • Members are friendly and responsive
  • Male to Female ratio is 13:1

CharmDate is dominated by men, outnumbering its female members with a 13:1 ratio. Even though the gender distribution of the site may suggest that it is more favourable for women, men still receive a lot of love and attention from the single women. The site has thousands of available young ladies you can chat and talk to. 

Since the site's main goal is to let men find their Ukrainian or Russian match, its female members are all from that descent. Its male members, however, are from different parts of the world. 

CharmDate is also known to be a marriage website. It has members who are in it for the long haul and would want a family of their own someday.  Most of its female members are aged 18-34, while its male members are well distributed among the age groups.

Majority of the site's visitors are from the United States, Ukraine, Canada, and New Zealand.

Signing Up

CharmDate Registration
  • Quick signup process
  • The process will only require you to give basic information
  • After signing up, you will be asked to answer a few questions about your match preference
  • A verification email will then be sent to you after signing up
  • Freebies are given once you complete the process

The signup process for Charm Date will only take at most five minutes to complete. The following are the personal information you have to provide during the signup process:

  • valid email 
  • date of birth
  • name
  • location

After successfully verifying your email, you need to answer a few questions about your ideal match. You have to fill out fields that ask you about your preferred age, hobbies, educational attainment, and many more. You also have to specify if you are okay to meet women who already have children. 

This information will help you filter the match suggestions that are given by the site. When these filters are activated, you are browsing through the 'Smart Matches' that are suggested by the site.

Making Contact

CharmDate Chat
  • Multiple ways of communication are available
  • All communication platforms are paid features
  • Video chat, live chat, and call service features are present
  • Women on the site are very active
  • Search filters are free to use

CharmDate has all the messaging and contacting features you can ever think of. From basic emails to live chats, from simple call services to video chats, the site has it all for you. 

It may have one of the most communication options available for a dating site, but these features are not available for free. To communicate with people you find interesting, you must have a lot of Qpid credits. Most of the features are paid according to how long and how often you are using them. The live chat, for example, will cost you 0.5 credits for five minutes, plus additional charges for using emojis, and viewing and sending photos.

You can reach out to your matches through EMF mail, Admirer mail, Live Chat, CamShare, VideoShow, and Call Service. The call service has three different types: scheduled calls, instant calls, and the call me authorisation.

 Unlocking any of the features is done for each member and for each time you use it. If you really think of it, you will spend thousands of Qpid credits just to keep in touch with your matches. 

The site will also give you a contact list which contains the top 100 people you have contacted in 180 days. After 180 days of inactivity, your list will be deleted.

CharmDate allows you to send virtual gifts to people you like which, of course, costs credits. It also has a feature where you can select and send actual flowers or actual gifts to your matches. You can do this by purchasing a gift or bouquet on the site's "Gifts and Flowers" section. The site will then take care of buying the actual item, and delivering them to the recipients.  

Profile Quality

CharmDate Profile
  • Members' profiles are not so detailed
  • The site can auto-write your description for you
  • Limited photos are available to view for free
  • Profile verification can be through email, phone, or ID
  • The profiles are not very detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later

CharmDate's profile information is not very detailed, but it has enough information for you to have a glimpse of what your matches are like. What the profile section contains are your most important information like your name, birthdate, gender, nationality, and relationship status. It will also have some details about your appearance and hobbies but it won't be as detailed as what other sites have.

The basic information that you have provided upon signing up cannot be edited. However, you can edit the ones you provided after signing up. These are the fields with the information about your height, weight, education, hobbies, number of children, and kind of relationship you are looking for. The profile section has an "About Me" field where you can write a little something about yourself. One cool thing about the "About Me" section is that you can choose to select tags that best describe yourself. After selecting the tags, CharmDate will generate a paragraph according to the tags you have chosen. You can use that auto-written paragraph for your about me section. Once you complete your profile, you will be awarded points which you can then trade in for credits. 

The profile information is inter-linked between all the sites run by the Qpid Network. Any changes you apply for one site will reflect on the other sites as well.

App

CharmDate App
  • Free to download
  • Available on Google Play and the App Store
  • The app allows you to switch to any of the Qpid Network dating site.
  • Easy to use user interface
  • The app has thousands of downloads

The Qpid Networks has a special app called Qpid Network: International Dating App. This is an all-in-one app that allows you to use CharmDate, AsiaMe, and LatamDate anytime, anywhere. 

The app's user interface has a very similar feel with the website, only that, it is more cramped and you can easily change the site you are using on it. Upon logging in, you will be greeted with a list of recommended matches. You will also only see the profile pictures and the names of your matches.If you want to know more about them, you have to tap on their photos and visit their profile. The app still requires you to pay for the features you use.

If you're planning to start a video chat through your phone, it is very possible. The features available for the site are made compatible with the app, so you can definitely enjoy it like how you enjoy the website. 

The app is on Google Play and the App Store. You can also scan the barcode on their site to set up the app on your phone. Do take note that its availability is limited to certain countries only. If the app is not available in your country, the site has a good mobile adaptive design that can make phone browsing easy for you.

Real Life Review

"At first, I was doubtful in using CharmDate. I don't see the relevance as to why we have to pay for a lot, just to communicate with other people. I really thought it was a scam site, but when I signed up and got to talk to my matches, I realised I was wrong. It may be expensive, but if that's what it takes to finally talk to a legit pretty and sensible woman, then I am very much willing to pay the price. Last week, I finally found the time (and the budget) to video call a girl I really like. We've already made arrangements on how we should meet in person, and I can't wait 'til everything is settled. There are still a lot of paper works to do though, but I am very excited to be with her and spend time with her personally. She's been so kind since day one, and I just know in my heart that she's the one I've been looking for." -Erwin, 27

Design and Usability

Despite being one of the pioneers in the online dating industry, CharmDate has coped with today's modern interface designs. The web design is simple and basic, but it does not look cheap. Its design well suits a wide range of age group since it's functional and easy to understand.

The site's design highlights profile pictures rather than information. This type of layout design encourages you to look for matches based on appearance. To see someone's full profile, you have to click on their image. 

Even though the site offers a lot of features, its design still remains well-organised. Its features are represented by icons that are easy to comprehend. 

One thing that can be annoying sometimes is the pop-up live chats you receive from online members who want to reach out to you. But overall, the quality of the site is good.

CharmDate Price
Payment Options
  • Credit Card
  • Direct Debit
  • PayPal

When you first sign-up, you will get a few coupons and vouchers that allow you to try the messaging features in CharmDate. But once your voucher expires, you will be asked to purchase more credits (which is not cheap, by the way). 

Every move you make to try and start talking with a member in CharmDate comes with a price. In order to use features, you will have to pay credits to unlock them. Each communication platform has a different rate. There are certain features that have to be paid according to how long you are using them and there are some features that only require one payment. Every feature is paid; each purchase can only be used once. That means you have to pay for every email you send even if you only have one recipient. 

If you really want to enjoy this site, you have to make sure that you have tons of extra cash. Its features are pretty addictive so you have to be prepared. If you're not, then this will probably break your bank. 

Special Features

CharmDate has a lot of innovative ways to let you communicate with people you like. It may be one of the sites with the most special features that will certainly wow you and your wallet. 

Admirer Mail

This is an email you receive from people who are showing you their interest. It is the first email you will receive from anyone. Reading Admirer emails are free, but replying to them will cost you points or credits.

Live Chat

Live Chat is CharmDate's version of instant messaging. You can chat with any online member but this feature is not for free. It is billed at 0.5 credits per five minutes for every person you chat with. You can send pictures and videos through live chat but you will have to pay for additional charges.

CamShare

This is a two-way paid video chat. This feature is only available for users who have activated this service and have turned on their camera.

Call Service

The Call Service is a paid feature that allows you to personally call your match. The following are the three different types of call services:

  • Scheduled Calls

For this type of call service, you have to make a reservation before you can proceed to the call. Once you have made a reservation, your contact will be notified and you have to wait until she accepts and confirms the request. You will be given a call ID after everything has been settled.

  • Instant Calls

Instant calls will not require reservations. You can speak with members who are available for calls right away.

  • Call Me

With this feature, you can authorise your contacts to call you. It's free to make an authorisation but for the call itself, you will have to pay for it. Your contact can then call you during your specified time.

Gifts and Flowers

This is one of the site's most unique feature. On the site, you will find a Gifts and Flowers section where you can purchase actual gifts and bouquets to send to your special someone. The site arranges your order by contacting local flower shops and stores and have your item delivered at your lover's door. The delivery fee is not included on the site's price list, so you will pay for it separately.  

Virtual Gifts

These are online gifts you can buy and send to your contacts. The gifts available here are e-cards for different occasions, graphic flowers, bears, and hearts.
