Welcome to the most ambiguous online dating site you’ll ever lay eyes on. We’re not trying to be mean, we’re just laying it out straight for you. When you arrive on Flirt.co.za you’re going to be confused – fair warning. It’s like superman syndrome: is it a bird, a plane? No, it’s… wait, seriously what is that? This site has a very strange aesthetic. Once you click on the FLIRT icon and find your way to an equally strange direction board, you’ll be taken to My.flirt.co.za. or one of the other partner sites. This is the dating portion of our meal.

Unfortunately, it just gets worse from here. Before you sign up, you’ll be bombarded by a list of at least 10 warnings about scammers, photos, money, emails and more. It turns out this site is scam ridden. It even encourages you to bring a friend when you meet up with someone new. That scares us a little. Okay, okay! It scares us a lot. Here’s the deal: it’s a free site. That’s about the only redeeming factor. Sure, there are search options and basic match statistics and match ups, but it takes 48 hours to sign up. In short, you have to be pretty determined to sign up to this online dating site if you want to get anywhere. There are chat boards and open messages, as well as private messages, but the site itself actually condones the use of fake photos. It just keeps getting better and better, doesn’t it?

And, here’s the lovely cherry on top of it all: it’s pretty darn ugly. They say don’t judge a book by its cover, or a site by its bland red-boxed expression, but they’re wrong. Just plain wrong. This site doesn’t strike us as very safe at all.

Overall, avoid this one at all costs. It gives us the tingles in all the wrong ways. Check out our heart rating and break down for more info. And be safe out there.

Let’s break it down:

Number of Members: Members or scammers? Somewhere between 100s and 1000s.
Instant Messaging: Kinda. There are chat rooms and an inbox.
Video Uploads: Nope.
Match Questions: Nope.
Privacy: It’s moderated, but there are scammers in abundance. The site advises you to put up a fake or real photo. It’s not looking good.
Picture Uploads: Yup.
Cost: Free. But at what cost? At what cost?!
Email Notifications: I’ll let you know after my 48 hour waiting period. *bada boom tsh*

Cons:

Read the tirade above. Everything. Just about everything.
