" Date Hookup tries to keep their website simple, straightforward and without too many bells and whistles to confuse users.With this in mind, the site provides exactly what it attempts to: a place for singles to meet other singles without having to pay a membership fee.Even now more than a handful of years later, it's still a free, easy-to-use and well-populated dating site, and I'm surprised it doesn't come up more often in the top free dating site lists."Date is a 100% free dating site (you knew that already right? Pay sites are only concerned with one thing, getting you to pay.All we care about is you having a good experience using this site so you can tell your single friends to join!There is no instant messaging feature on Date Hookup.Potential users can peruse the entire site - including the date ideas and forums - without actually signing up for a membership.
If for whatever reason you decide to take a break from the site, you'll be asked to reset your password once you sign in again.
An interesting feature that works surprisingly well is the interests portion of one's profile; when you sign up, you're asked to make a comma-delineated list of the things that you enjoy.
It isn't pretty, and it looks almost identical to how it did when I first reviewed it in 2008, but, it works.
All users have access to the same features: blog, customizable profile, forums, send and receive emails, custom search saving and a simple social networking option to 'friend' other users.
The profile process is quick and relatively simple, and doesn't have minimum character rules when it comes to the written part of the process - a nice feature when trying to sign up and look around right away, but not-so-hot when you want to learn more about someone that has piqued your interest.
Mind you Date Hookup is free, so it doesn't take much to send off a quick email and learn more.
