Registration was quite challenging at HSV Singles. No, it was not because the process was complicated; it was because there seems to be a lot of registration forms.
Since Facebook registration was not offered, we settled for signing up directly. The form that greets users right at the homepage was quite useless. Yes, we were able to select our preference, input our nominated password and email, and hit sign up now. What we weren’t prepared for was when we were redirected back to the homepage, and into the same form we just filled out.
We decided to select the “Log In” button located on the upper right portion of the home. This redirected us to a different landing page where another form awaits.
This time, we weren’t asked to input data one-by-one. The singular form asked us to provide our email address, preferred username, nominated password, birth date, orientation and preference (man looking for a woman or a woman looking for a man), and our location. The last detail was geotagged according to our IP address. Then, we clicked “Create Account.”
Our first sign up attempt using this form was not successful. We did not receive any verification email; when we tried to log in, HSV Singles claimed that the email we used was not part of their user base.
We tried signing up again, this time using the links “Search Members” and “Browse Members.” When these links still did not help us sign up, we went back to the second registration form we filled out. This time around, we were successful.
Some advice to register with ease:
- Try to clear your cookies around the period of your registration attempt.
- Use letters in lowercase and basic punctuations for both your username and password. Fancy stylizations and unique characters may not be recognized or accepted by HSV Singles.
Once you’re in, the website will ask you to customize your profile immediately. Details such as your physique, marital and parental status, your hobbies, views, personality, and ideal type will be asked.
Take note that this process may be skippable, but we highly recommend you finish your profile in one go.
The moderators of HSV Singles routinely and rigorously check new accounts. Given the sensitivity and clamor for privacy, the team won’t hesitate to suspend suspicious and empty profiles to stop potential frauds.
We already shared how grueling the signup process can be. Given a choice between completing the profile and registering again, we will always pick the former. Also, a packed profile gets more attention as every detail of it will pique a member’s interest.
