Like the other dating sites operated by Together Networks, WantUBad doesn’t offer much in terms of features. To interact with other members, you have four functionalities to choose from. Three out of the four are accessible for all standard members.
Got your eye on someone? At WantUBad, you may start the interaction by sending a Wink. This function is free and can be used whenever you like what you’re seeing.
A member will be immediately notified after you sent a wink. Thus, if the feeling is mutual, the other party may wink back or even initiate a chat.
Sometimes, seeing all the profiles at once may be overwhelming. It’s unfortunate, but you’re bound to miss a fantastic match when you skim.
With the Like Gallery, however, you get to focus your attention on one person only. Check them out one by one and hit the heart button if you’re interested.
If you would like to make sure you don’t miss out on anyone, you can save profiles to your Favorites list. As long as you don’t remove them, you may always look back and interact whenever you feel like it.
If all else fails, you can opt to be direct and send a message. However, WantUBad’s Chat function is paid, so you might want to consider upgrading your subscription.
If you’re not sure about this, WantUBad will give you five free messages. You can choose to spend all five on one profile or to split it for more coverage.
One thing we noticed at WantUBad is the instant messages and notifications we received. These alerts tell us several members browsed our profiles, sent us a wink, added us to their favorites, and event sent us a message. This is a good sign, right?
It could have been a good sign if only these profiles were interacting with a fully-furnished account. Ours was brand new, two minutes after we verified our email to be exact, so there was no time to add a photo, customize profiles, and whatnots.
“To boost interaction between our members and to notify them of newly registered matches and their activity, we may, from time to time, use an automatic pop notification system and other communication channels, e.g. inbox or instant messages to send Activity Alerts to you. Activity Alerts will be marked in your inbox with a specific icon, and some auto generated Activity Alerts may require an upgraded Paid Membership in order to see the content of messages and reply to them.”
We automatically assumed this clause pertains to the Site Admin, who WantUBad already disclosed was a bot. However, we can see all of the bot’s messages and even access the links shared there. For non-paying members, it's the direct messages that won’t be visible unless they upgraded their subscription.
Whether we signed up during a particularly slow and inactive day, or fake profiles is all there is at WantUBad is still unfounded. However, we did decide to move forward with caution and check every little detail the site has to offer.
