There are multiple ways to get in touch with other members of DatingDirect such as sending messages and likes. It also has a variety of features to make your matches notice you. But the real scene-stealer in DatingDirect is the free organised events it rolls out for everyone.
DatingDirect Events are a great way to meet people during happy hours, cultural outings, organised weekends and more, all in a casual and friendly atmosphere. You can bring your friends with you if you to these gatherings. Basically, these events will get you to meet other singles over a drink.
Browsing the events listings is available for free. Take note that only the site can create these events, as they make sure that everything is safe and well-facilitated; thus the term "organised events." Here are the general rules of attending an event:
- Attend one of the nights and kick back with a cocktail while chatting to lots of other singles.
- They also offer dinners for those who prefer longer conversations in a cosy restaurant.
- You can also register for one of our socials if you prefer something more fun and relaxed. Take part in cooking lessons, photography lessons, pool or even a walking tour.
For paid events, ask your friends to create a profile on the site so that they can book and pay for events they would like to attend. Just bear in mind that tickets are offered according to location and age range. Once they have created their profile, ask them to contact the customer care team and we will add a free 7-day subscription to their account.
This is where you can discover the DatingDirect selection that meets your search criteria. It shows you the profile overview of your match and you decide whether you like the person by clicking either "Yes" or "No."
Clicking "Yes" will place the profile overview presented like mini cards on your deck. Liking profiles will send a notification to the other person. It's one way to get noticed by people in this wide pool of selection.
The Shuffle feature is available for free, although you will need a paid subscription to unlock the list of members who sent you likes.
Another contacting feature is Incognito, which lets you browse invisible. Get a good look at the person that you want without them finding out. You also won’t appear in any search results. Incognito mode can be activated and deactivated as often as you’d like.
Incognito Mode is activated immediately and lasts 24 hours or 30 days depending on option chosen. You can get it for £1.99 for 24 hours or £9.99 for a whole month.
Most of the contacting features need a paid subscription. But since creating an account is available for everyone, it can be a reasonable addition to filtering out creepers on the site and receive messages only from those who are sincerely interested.
