C-Date is a casual dating app best suited for those who just want to have fun
The app and site, which caters to both Australia and the United States, claims to take a classier approach to casual relationships while putting the spotlight on specific desires. The app is interest driven with thousands of users but still manages to keep its layout and functionality simple. Here’s the lowdown on C-Date and what it has to offer.
C-Date has some good things going for it. For starters, the idea of the app is appealing to a large group. There are many people looking towards the more fun and casual side of dating instead of a serious relationship. Below are the other highlights.
Users can register for free. First you select what you are looking for followed by the experience you want. The options provided are:
The members of the site are attractive. There seems to be a good variety which means most will find matches that suit their specific preferences. The only challenging part is that many profiles have no images due to the nature of the site. This is a con for some when it actually gives the incentive to spark conversation.
C-Date features put a lot of emphasis on discretion. One of the standouts is their photo release feature. As mentioned, many profiles do not have public photos. This is because the photo release feature gives users complete control of who’s allowed to view them. There is the option to make photos public or release them to specific users after getting to know them via chat.
Another you will notice is the mailbox feature. Obviously, this is where you send and receive messages. Although basic, a paid subscription is required to communicate. As for the ‘My Erotic Type’ feature, it clearly expresses the type of fun a user is looking for along with ‘Desired Preferences and Encounter’. The first is a way for users to express desires. You just choose from a gallery of images to let matches know where your interests lie. Desired preferences and encounters is similar and puts more emphasis on the connection you’re looking for. With this feature, users can choose what they would like to do with matches. This includes sensual chats, a physical relationship, and even something long term.
Most complaints about C-Date come from male users. Unlike females who can join and use the application/website for free, men do have to subscribe. Let’s go over some common cons.
Functionality is a bit buggy at times. The app doesn’t always offer a smooth user experience which is a drawback. Fortunately, C-Date seems to fix these hiccups rather quickly but the app is still lacking something.
The price to join C-Date is a tad high and on top of that, your card will automatically be charged once the trial period is up. This does not differ from most sites but canceling is a challenge. Men must fill out an online form to cancel, submit the form, customer service is often hard to get in touch with and a significant portion has noticed unexpected charges on their accounts despite a seemingly successful cancellation. To avoid problems, be sure to read their terms and conditions carefully.
C-Date has a problem with fake profiles. This is primarily female profiles since they are free. For this reason, it is important to be very selective on the app and take time to sort legitimate users from illegitimate ones. That being said, there are real people on the app looking for someone to spend time with.
It then asks what region you’re in followed by your birthday, relationship status, you then answer a few questions about your personal appearance and enter your email and password to complete registration
All in all, C-Date is one of those try at your own risk apps. It does have joingy some fair things to offer like the features and level of privacy but the question is are you willing to pay for something that is just OK? The choice is yours!
