Flirt Female Profile

Our Review

Flirt was launched in 2009 and had high traction since then. The site was acquired by Cupid plc (formerly known as EasyDate), and since its acquisition, gained more than a million members worldwide. All features used to be free for women back in the day, but to keep the dating experience safe, Flirt now offers premium membership to all its members. This was not received positively by Flirt users, so to compensate for this, Flirt decided to offer a 3-day trial membership for a minimal cost. They also have a Satisfaction Guarantee that lets users contest for a partial refund if they didn’t enjoy their time on the site.

Flirt advocates for comfortable flirting in their dating site, which is why they have safety measures and anti-scam protectors. The site has features to get your flirting game on. Features such as the ‘Like Gallery’ allow all members to quickly find a match, while ‘Flirtcast’ lets you broadcast a flirty message to all online users. These features help members who are looking for something fun and casual rather than to find love and serious relationships.

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • Over 1 million users worldwide
  • Majority of users are within the age range of 20-35
  • High member activity
  • Registered users are very diverse in nationality
  • Members are mostly looking for casual fun

The member base of Flirt is very diverse. There is a good percentage of users in every continent, but the biggest comes from the United States. Members of Flirt are usually within the younger age range of 20-35. However, it is noticeable that some members, especially male ones, tend to look a lot older on their profile photos than the age written on their profiles. So it is unsure if members are lying about their age or they just really look old.

There are quite a number of obvious fake profiles in Flirt. These profiles use celebrity photos as their profile pictures even if it is not allowed. These could have been overlooked by Flirt admins who approve every photo upload on the website. Also, even without an approved profile photo yet, we received messages and videos from some women users. They could be clickbait for luring users to upgrade their subscription.

  • 1-3 minute registration
  • Account activation is done thru email

  • Gay share available

Account registration in Flirt is a quick and easy process. It would just take a minute or three to successfully create an account. You also do not have to provide too many details upon registration. You just need to fill out a personal information form asking for your gender, the gender of the person you are looking for, and your postal code. Flirt does not verify if a postal code is valid, so anyone can create an account using any zip code they wish.

Next, you would need to nominate a password and provide your email. Your email must be valid as account activation will be done through it. Flirt will send you an email with an activation link for a one-click activation. Below this activation link is an activation code which you can manually enter on the account activation page of the dating site.

Making Contact

flirt message inbox
  • There is a roulette-type matching feature
  • Messaging is a paid feature
  • Locked messages are automatically deleted when the 24-hour timer runs out
  • Sending winks is a free feature
  • You can add interesting contacts to a 'Favourites' list
  • Search categories and search filters available
  • You can view your matches and who has liked you for free

Flirt members have two main ways to initiate contact with other members. The first one is to send winks, and the second one is to send messages. After registration, users are given five free chats that they can use to five different members. Their replies and other succeeding messages are locked for male users and automatically deletes after 24 hours unless they upgrade to a premium membership. Women, on the other hand, can reply to messages from other users for free.

When suspicious users message you, Flirt gives you a notification that that particular person is under observation for anti-scam activity. Flirt stresses that choosing to interact with that particular person will be solely dependent on your common sense.

Flirt has a ‘Like Gallery’, which is similar to a roulette-type matching activity. You will be presented with a profile photo, which you can like by clicking the heart or the ‘X’ button, which means you are not interested. On this page, you are able to view the likes you’ve sent, the members who have liked you, as well as your successful matches.

Profile Quality

Flirt Female Profile
  • Profiles remain invisible until you complete your profile
  • Every photo upload needs to be approved by Flirt admin
  • You can request a user to add more photos and/or profile information
  • Profile verification is available by calling Flirt operators
  • Profiles show how approximate a member is to your location
  • Suspicious members have to undergo an anti-scam verification process

The profiles of Flirt members show limited details. At the top of the profile, sits your profile photo on the right, and beside it is your username, age, gender, and location. Right below this section are your personal information, 'photo gallery', and additional information sections. You can request other members to add more information to their profiles if they have not filled out some of the information fields yet. There is also a ‘Looking for’ section on all profiles but is locked for free members. Right below each profile, there are suggestions of similar users that you can look into.

Flirt profiles can become verified by calling Flirt admin operators. You will be asked several simple questions that validate your identity.

App

    Flirt.com does not have a downloadable mobile app, however, Flirt has a mobile version of its dating site for mobile browsers. The mobile version has five icons on the header that represent each tab feature. The search tab displays members in a 2-grid layout, with two action buttons (Chat and Wink) under each profile photo.

    Real Life Review

    There are many casual dating sites out there, and trust me I’ve almost tried all. Hearing about Flirt from a friend, I was curious to try it out. I immediately signed-up one night when I was at the bar. I wanted to see if I could find a random hook-up since things in the bar were going so slow.

    After I’ve successfully signed up, I upgraded my subscription to the 3-day package. Then I set the search filters to find members who were approximate to my location and was able to send a message to some women I was interested in. After about 10 messages, I got a girl who was looking for the same thing I wanted. I was glad she was just 200m away. We met and had a memorable night.

    For sure, I will use the dating site again when I can’t find what I need at the bar. - Nathan, 28

    Design and Usability

    The design of Flirt is straightforward and makes for easy navigation. There are only two main feature tabs on the header menu: ‘Search’ and ‘Like Gallery’. On the ‘Search’ page, the search filters are on the top of the page, followed by three tabs: ‘All Members’, ‘Online Now’, and ‘New Members’. Members are displayed in a grid layout with indicators if they are currently online. New members also have a red “New” text mark. Under each profile photo, members’ names, age, and proximity are shown. There are also two action buttons, ‘Chat’ and ‘Wink’, at the bottom for quick contacting.

    On the right side of the header menu, a big green ‘Upgrade Now’ button is found. This takes you to the upgrade page of your membership. Next to it is a chat icon that takes you to your inbox. On the right side of the chat icon is a bell icon which lists all your notifications. A red bubble will appear, together with a number, if you have unread notifications. On the rightmost part of the header is a collapsible menu that will take you to your account settings and profile.

    All of Flirt’s features used to be free for women. However, due to its popularity and the number of fake profiles being created to scam others, Flirt now asks all its users to upgrade their membership to access all its features. To compensate for this, Flirt offers a huge discount for every new member who registers on their dating site. They also give a 3-day trial for only £2.97 for all new members. Other than that, they also give five free chats for women, and women can reply to messages for free.

    Flirt has a satisfaction guarantee which you can contest and avail if you have proven that the website did not meet your expectations.

    Special Features

    Flirtcast is a feature that allows you to send the same message to all your matches in just one click. You can only send one Flirtcast every 12 hours.

    Editors Conclusion

    Photo Chris
    If you are looking for something casual, Flirt can get the job done. The online indicators and location proximity information found on each member's profile on the member search can help you find the right match in an instant. It also helps that you are not obliged to sign-up to become a premium member to initiate a conversation because of the five free messages offered by Flirt. This could help you gauge if Flirt is the right platform for you. Signing up is free, and every new member is eligible for the 3-day trial for a minimum cost. At least, you are not tied to a dating site for at least a month if you realise that Flirt doesn’t work for you.
