OKCupid proved the most useful with its toolkit, advising the right things to say, do and wear to impress a date. He uploaded 30 pictures to both OKCupid and HotOrNot. All this attention saw the RSViP search algorithm promote him to the top of all Sydney search results. He was ranked 1 out of the Top guys in Sydney, which brought on even more attention. Eros finally turned off his script a few months ago and was ready to quit RSVP to go celibate, but not before a young lady contacted him and wanted to go out.
They have been seeing each other ever since. Section 7. Disclosure: Lifehacker Australia, its parent Allure Media and RSVP are part of the Fairfax Media Group. I helped maintain a dating site for a while. Username or Email Address. Remember Me. First Name. Last Name. Display Name.
Email Adress. Repeat Password. Gizmodo Newsletter. Kotaku Newsletter. What he built was a script that would automate his first point of contact with a network of various women that would then let him respond appropriately based on their response.
The script sought out and contacted members with a specific Kiss message when they met the criteria Eros was looking for, and paired with his RSViP subscription, he was able to message thousands of users a day. Without an RSViP subscription, he would have been limited to sending around 20 Kiss messages per day. If the girls responded in the negative, the script would automatically delete that message from the Mailbox leaving only the actionable responses for Eros to deal with. After the script was complete and had begun working its magic, he set about studying relationship surveys from other dating sites.

Username or Email Address. Remember Me. First Name. Detailed, math-based matching system. Good for queer, gender-diverse and non-monogamous dating. Privacy: Your info may be shared with other dating sites like Plenty of Fish and Tinder. We asked OkCupid for details about their membership but they were unable to provide exact numbers. Demographic: The majority of OkCupid users are Millennials, followed by Gen Z then Gen X. Angle: OkCupid claims to use a math-based matching system to help users find partners.
After completing a basic profile and matching questions, users can elect to fill out hundreds of optional broad-reaching questions — like if they'd date a messy person, whether they like dogs, or even how often they brush their teeth. The more questions you answer on your profile, the better the matching system becomes, the company says.
OkCupid had the most gender, sexuality and relationship preferences of all the sites we looked at, so it's a good option if you don't identify as heterosexual, cisgender or monogamous. Matching: Potential matches are rated by a "Match Percentage" based on who you're looking for, what they're looking for, and how similarly you both answer questions that you mark as important.
Users can then flick through one potential match at a time, search for users based on specific criteria including gender, age and distance or browse all potential matches using the discover feature. OkCupid has free and paid A-list memberships. According to the company, the site is designed so that a free account doesn't hinder your use of the site — you don't need the paid features to use the site.
A-list members can access the site ad-free, get additional match search options, send unlimited likes, get message-read receipts and see the full list of people who like them. Premium A-list: All the features of A-list, plus one free automatic boost per day during prime time. You can also see everyone's public answers to their questions before you answer, and you'll receive something called "Increased Attractiveness" which claims to let you see and be seen by more attractive matches.
Incognito mode: This makes your profile invisible to everyone on the site unless you 'like' or message them, and gives you ad-free access. You can turn it on or off as you please. Profile boosts: These give you a day's worth of views in just a few minutes.
You can buy boosts individually, or in discounted multi-packs. You can't see the membership costs until you've joined OkCupid and answered many questions and subscriptions automatically renew.
The prices are also in US dollars, and you can pay using PayPal. OkCupid can't refund purchases made via the iPhone app. OkCupid is part of Match Group, which owns other dating sites like Tinder, Plenty of Fish and Match, and your information may be shared with other Match Group companies.
OkCupid may also share your information with third parties such as advertising partners. Tinder and OkCupid have recently come under fire following the release of a report by the Norwegian Consumer Council which found that the apps were sharing personal user information with third parties.
According to a spokesperson, OkCupid has a support team that monitors all accounts using standard verification practices. Uses a "Relationship Chemistry Predictor" to find matches. Privacy: Your profile could be made visible on other dating sites like OkCupid and Tinder. Members: million registered users worldwide. Data could not be provided on Australian members. Matching: Users fill out a profile listing preferences for a potential partner, plus an optional "Relationship Chemistry Predictor".
PoF then sends you a report based on your survey responses and uses the data to find you matches. Free: A free membership lets users post up to eight photos, communicate, view others' photos and use most features of the site.
Paid: You can upgrade your membership for additional features such as the ability to upload up to 16 images, unlock any user's extended profile, see if your emails were read or deleted, find out when someone viewed your profile, go ad-free and appear first in search results. You can also buy tokens to send a priority message, highlight your profile or send a 'Super Yes' to let another user know you are very interested in them.
Tokens expire after six months. You can't access pricing information until you've signed up and answered many questions , which is frustrating. Bear in mind that unless you specifically opt out, subscriptions automatically renew.
You can pay using PayPal. PoF says it may share your personal information with affiliates and third parties acting on their behalf. PoF is part of the Match Group of businesses, which includes Tinder, OkCupid and Match. Your information may be shared with other businesses in this group. Your profile could also be made visible on other Match Group services, but PoF says it will notify you and allow you to agree or refuse "where relevant".
Considered more credible due to higher membership costs. Privacy: Your info including photos could be used for advertising or shared with a third party. Matching: Free users can select a range of parameters for their ideal partner, including age, location, height, ethnicity and education. The site regularly generates matches for you, based on both users matching each other's ideal partner criteria, plus people near you and some wild cards for good measure. It also uses its 'Discover Engine' which suggests members based on historical matching data.
Paying members also have access to compatibility data, and so may have a better shot at a good match. Basic: If you sign up for free, you can view full profiles, upload up to 15 photos, receive a personality report, set criteria for matches and send and accept virtual winks, which are expressions of interest.
You'll receive matches each day but one party will need to pay to initiate contact. If you want to message another user, you'll need to use stamps. One stamp opens up 30 days of contact via chat or message with any one member. This option gives you priority customer support, allows you to see who has viewed your profile and gives you extra control over your profile visibility.
Your profile will be highlighted and appear at the top of search results. It also allows you to extend your stamp expiry, and you won't see ads when using RSVP on your mobile. This option gives you the same features as Premium membership, plus four stamps per month. Unused stamps can accumulate as long as your membership remains current. This option gives you the same features as Premium membership plus ten stamps per month and the ability to send a super wink every day. A super wink allows the receiver to reply to you for free.
Signing up to an RSVP account and agreeing to its privacy terms and conditions grants permission for your personal information, including photos and email addresses, to be used for advertising or transmission to a third party. RSVP says their customer support team personally monitors and checks all profiles and photos that are submitted to the site.
Easy-to-use app-based dating service. Uses geolocation to find matches. We asked Tinder for details about their Australian membership numbers, but they could only provide a global figure of 5. Unique features: Tinder is an app-based online dating service. It has the simplest format of all the apps and sites we looked at. Matching: You pick the gender or genders you're interested in, the age range you're looking for and how close in distance you'd like a potential match to be.
Tinder then uses the GPS on your mobile phone to search for nearby Tinder users. Once it locates them, it shows you their first name, age, a profile picture and brief blurb. You tap their name to read a little more about them and see more pictures, swipe right if you'd like to be matched with them, or left if you're not interested. If both parties swipe right, you're a match, meaning you can start interacting with them.
Free: Users can see profiles, match with other users and chat with matches. They can send one Super Like each day, which shows someone that you're really interested in them. Tinder Plus: This in-app subscription gives you access to features like Rewind which allows you to review people you accidentally passed on and Passport which allows you to match with people in different locations , as well as five Super Likes per day and unlimited 'right swipes' or likes.
It also gives you additional Boosts which increase profile visibility. Tinder's pricing varies depending on a number of undisclosed factors. Tinder Gold: Offers the same features as Tinder Plus, as well as access to the Likes You feature, which shows you who likes you before you swipe. Super Like: You can send a Super Like to let someone know you're really interested in them.
Boost: This makes you one of the top profiles in your area for 30 minutes. Tinder's pricing policy in Australia is ambiguous and the company did not provide specific information in response to our request for pricing information.
According to a Tinder spokesperson, Tinder has "a dynamic pricing structure that offers multiple price points, which may vary by region, length of subscription, recent in-app promotions and more. On average, people who were over the age of 30 were offered prices that were more than double the prices given to those who were under 30, like in the US. This suggests Tinder is using other, unknown factors to personalise its prices further. We didn't see a pattern that could explain the differences.
To use the app, you must sign up with your Facebook account or your phone number. If you use your Facebook account, this then forms the basis of your Tinder profile. According to Tinder, this is to ensure matches are made with people who share interests and common friends.
That being said, Tinder doesn't post to your Facebook profile, so if you're concerned about friends getting updates about your use of the site, at least on this point, you can rest easy. Tinder also gives itself access to the content of your chats when you're using the app and may share your personal data with third parties for advertising purposes.
Tinder is part of the Match Group of businesses, which includes Plenty of Fish, OkCupid and Match. Tinder and OkCupid have recently come under fire following the release of a report by the Norwegian Consumer Council which found that the apps are sharing personal user information with third parties.
You are able to view the personal data that Tinder has collected about you by using the Download my Data tool and you can also request its deletion.
Matches based on compatibility. Privacy: Zoosk may use your email contacts to invite your friends to the site. We asked Zoosk to provide current figures for their membership and demographic, but they didn't respond. Matching: To register, you fill out a profile, which you can do by signing up with Facebook, and then populate your profile with more information like your interests or your ideal date. You can meet singles using three methods: by searching for them by distance and age, by using the "Carousel" which works similarly to Tinder , or by using SmartPick which evaluates compatibility between Zoosk members and makes match recommendations.
Zoosk claims to learn from your actions as you use the site, therefore making more suitable matches as you use the site more. Zoosk offers free and paid memberships, and a pay-as-you-go system using "Zoosk Coins".
The free profiles function as a preview — if you want to communicate with users on the site you have to pay for a membership. Free: Members can create a profile, search for singles, and send introductory winks, but they can't send or receive messages.
Memberships auto-renew unless you cancel your membership before it expires. With a paid membership, you can send and receive messages and winks, chat with connections, see profiles of those who have viewed yours, and get full access to Smartpick, Zoosk's matching services. Zoosk Coins: You can also earn or buy Zoosk "Coins", which unlock your matches, allow you to send virtual gifts, boost your profile, and get delivery confirmations on emails, among other features.
Coins can be earned by using or signing up to various third-party apps, surveys, services and websites.
It puts a big emphasis on making the site as safe as possible for users and works closely with law enforcement agencies to ensure the platform is user-friendly and that women and gay members, in particular, feel comfortable and secure using the site. It continues to go from strength to strength, and if its claims are to be believed, is by far the most important dating website in Australia.
That makes it a very dynamic and energetic site, with plenty of chat and interaction between members. Free — because the initial sign up is free, this is the best way to get familiar with the site without committing to a paid subscription.
Paid membership — signing up for a paid membership allows you to send emails as well as receive them. There are two types of membership — Standout and Premium. Our top tip is to go for the Standout membership and purchase stamps as and when you need them. You can pay by credit card or through PayPal. In the younger groups it tends to be more men than women, and in older groups the percentage of women to men increases.
The website currently has around two million members, of which around 1. During our review we found the website and the apps both for Android and iOS to be very simple. Most people take a bit of care in creating good, in-depth profiles, and you can also use other features such as the Ideal Partner or Matching applications to narrow down your search which we recommend doing, as there are so many people on the site.
RSVP Dating has apps for both Android and iOS , and a mobile site that basically works the same as the apps as well. This makes it a very Millennial-friendly site, which is reflected in the number of year-olds who are members. There are also various categories for Asian Dating and Chinese singles, as well as Seniors and Single parent dating groups. Once you register for free, you can start using the site and search for singles in your area.
RSVP Dating has put together a survey that takes around 15 minutes to complete, that gives you a five-page personality report about yourself. You can use this to see how compatible you are with other users and to create an honest, more attractive profile. The operators take security and safety very seriously indeed, and offer dating tips to help users stay safe. They also monitor and check all profiles and pictures. You are here: Home » RSVP Review.
