Online dating isn’t the easiest of things to do. At least, it sounds easier than it is. When you sign up, you’ll probably conscious of your privacy and what you’re putting out there all the time. It’s not just about putting yourself out there, but potentially putting yourself at risk because, let’s face it, not everyone’s as nice as you are. Luckily, there are online dating sites which cater to your privacy. One such, is SAOnlineDating which is part of the ‘JustDating’ family and which is protected by Online Dating Protector.

Signing up is pretty darn easy. You just input your name, your email, your gender, your password and your age, and you’re good to go. Once you sign in, however, you won’t be able to do anything but search. You have to upgrade to take advantage of all the extras SAOnlineDating has to offer. The site has a dating diary option where you can express just how you’re feeling and have all the other daters read it. Best part: you can read their diaries too. There’s also the option to video chat with potential lova lovas, and you can create your own video upload albums or galleries once you’re a fully-fledged member of the site.

There are plenty of advanced search options which help you find just what you’re looking for. You can send winks if you’re feeling a little too shy to send a message and you can rate encounters (the pictures and profiles of people) to help the site determine just what it is you want in an ideal match. You can also ‘favourite’ anybody you really like, and give them the chance to express mutual attraction by becoming your fan in turn.

Overall, it’s another stallion in the ‘JustDating’ family of online dating sites. It won’t disappoint on its extras, but it might irritate you if you just don’t have the cash to spend on a dating site. Check out our heart rating and break down for all the juicy deets.

Let’s break it down:

Number of Members: Over 2 million accounts created.
Instant Messaging: Yup. Enjoy the inbox and the chatting functions.
Video Uploads: Yup. But only once you upgrade! Tsk tsk.
Match Questions: Nope.
Privacy: Excellent. All the ‘JustDating’ sites are monitored by Online Dating Protector which ensures your safety. You can block unwanted guests and delete your profile quite easily.
Picture Uploads: Yup.
Cost: Upgrading is advised, as you won’t get much done on this site without it. You can expect to pay anywhere between R70 and R145 per month depending which payment plan you select.
