Say ‘hello’ to the green and blue co-flagship of the ‘JustDating’ empire. This group of sites has monopolized the dating scene with simple online dating sites which have quick login, extra features and loads of users to choose from. They’re also heavily privacy conscious and are protected by Online Dating Protector – which helps prevent scams and spammers.

As with all the sites in this franchise, you’re looking at a quick login which asks you to level a one liner (I love… holidays?) to introduce yourself. Then you’ll answer sets of questions on your personal preferences and just what you’re looking for in a potential love connection. Then you’ll get to add your photo (go for it – show ‘em what you’ve got) and will be able to check out all the local talent. You can refine your search according to your preferences and even make it so that people who don’t fit your potential match criteria can’t contact you. Sounds mean? More like pragmatic. There are plenty of other features, like dating diaries and an astrology section, which are available to upgraded members.

Unfortunately, basic members won’t be able to do anything but wink at passers-by (quite literally) until they upgrade. Only then will you be able to send messages and interact properly with whoever catches your eye. Once you see what you like, you get to rate your encounter and the site will spit out some more matches for you, based on what you’ve found. It’s quite an easy and fun process, but don’t expect much to happen if you don’t take the budget plunge here.

Overall, it’s worth a try. If you’re looking for a good match, this site is geared towards providing it for you – but at a price of course. The choice is yours, but check out our heart rating and break down for some of the important info.

Let’s break it down:

Number of Members: 2 million plus profiles created.
Instant Messaging: Yup. But you have to upgrade from your free membership in order to access it.
Video Uploads: Yup. You can record your own video profile and engage in video chat – once you’ve upgraded of course.
Match Questions: No match questions. Your matches are selected by how you rate your encounters. Better get rating!
Privacy: Privacy conscious and has an ignore list. You can block whoever you want and there’s also a customer support line. Protected by Online Dating Protector.
Picture Uploads: Yup.
Cost: You’re able to upgrade to get more options. You’re looking at the range of R66 to R105 per month depending on your selection.
Email Notifications: You can set your email notifications according to your preferences.


– Doesn’t let you reply to messages before you upgrade – so you got to pay to play.
