Our Review

Connecting Singles is a dating community which claims to offer a 100% free service for its users. It is also known for its several functionalities. These features go beyond what the traditional dating sites usually offer. Aside from messaging and photo-liking, they also have the poets, gaming, music, and video corner.

Do these extended functionalities serve their purpose of finding you your one true love, or do they only keep you too distracted because of their overwhelming presence? Are they worth the time exploring or do they just prolong the process of you finding your perfect match?

We have gathered the most important points in this review to help you consider whether or not you should push through creating an account with this dating site.

  • You get a personal profile which you can fill out
  • Majority of users who join post their photos.
  • You will see the list of all the currently online users.
  • The site's main target population are singles who want to find a partner through dating sites that are free.
  • Female members are more active than male members in sending "flirt" requests.
  • Male members are more actively engaging in other features such as "forums."

The community is active. There are also a lot of people who are online at once. However, people who are online tend to spend more time on non-dating related features such as the general topics forum and games. The site is loaded with a lot of features, but only one or two will serve the purpose of dating or flirting. Participating in forums and other highly-populated users are more likely to find you a prospective partner than the search tool or "Matches" tab.

Signing Up

Connecting Singles Registration
  • You can create a Connecting Singles account either by using your Facebook account or your email address.
  • The site rules are displayed once you reach the second part of registration.
  • You can't answer the questions in gibberish as the account will be deleted.
  • You can't add a narrative text that is inconsistent with the stated gender you seek.
  • New users will be under review in the first 24 hours of their membership.

Aside from basic details, the registration process will ask you to describe your job. There are at least three essay type questions found in the second part. You can't include direct contact or personally identifiable information such as full name, email address, phone number, mailing address, ICQ or URL, names or ages of your children in the essay box as it is a violation of the rule. Just be yourself in answering these questions as they only require the answers to be at least 50 characters. Answer as accurately as possible because your compatibility with other members will greatly rely on this information.

Making Contact

Connecting Singles Message
  • You have to wait before your account is approved before you can send a message.
  • There are other features such as games and puzzles aside from messaging.
  • Members are more active in using other features such as forums than messaging.
  • There is no live chat available.
  • Members always use the forums page to discuss instead of intimate, personal messages.
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone

You will not receive a message immediately after your account is created because the site has to verify first if your account is fake or not. Sending likes to other people is already allowed, but it seems that this feature is not used often. The highest percentage of activities are scattered across other features such as topic forums, polls, and games. It is also noticeable that people under the "Matches" list do not engage immediately. They may be busy in other parts of the dating site as it is wide and has a lot of features.

Profile Quality

Connecting Singles Female Profile
  • You will able to see all photos inside the profile.
  • It shows when the last time the user is online.
  • The profiles are not very detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free
  • Photo albums can be uploaded later.

The profile contains only the basic details such as the gender, religion, occupation, etc. 
The areas which offer the most content are the tabs where your answers in the required essay type questions (during registration) are included.

Inside the page are the buttons that may be used to interact with the profile owner. There is a "Send a message" button, "Like" button, "Send FLower" button, and "Contact Requirements" button. Under "Contact Requirements" button, you will find the criteria set by the profile owner that you must meet if you want to send him or her a message.

App

Connecting Singles App
  • The design is clear and appropriate.
  • The app looks crowded because of the site’s several features.
  • The app is available for Android devices.
  • It is free to download.

The ConnectingSingles app is similar to a browser that opens automatically the mobile version of ConnectingSingles. The site seems to be more convenient to use because of the many features. In the app, you will have to scroll down a lot if you are looking for a particular feature. It is somewhat hard to look for the functionality that you want to use because you will scroll through a long list of features.

The loading of the app is also somewhat slow compared to other dating apps. If you want to use the dating site on-the-go, it is better to just access the mobile-friendly version on your phone browser.

Real Life Review

So far, I am enjoying my stay in Connecting Singles because I never get bored. I have not yet found a "partner," but I have gained some friends. I'm not sure if I can be romantically involved with these people because I only talk to them in the comments section of a new post we are interested in. I joined the site because it's said to be free and that there are a lot of features inside, but it's starting to feel to become other media sites. What I do here, I can also do on other social media site such as Facebook. Will I be able to find my special someone here? I hope so too. -Carrie, 30

Design and Usability

Connecting Singles' top navigation bar in the desktop version is a helpful tool to organise its many features. The design of the buttons inside the site is clear and easy to understand.

The functionalities do not only come with a button, but they also have a text description beside them. When you click a button, a simple text appears below the function/feature name so you will know what applying it does to your account. This makes navigating the site easier since it has a lot of features inside.

Editors Conclusion

Photo Chris
The site is true in its claim about having quality membership in its community, but it is relatively slow in finding you a prospective partner. It has a lot of fun features, but the dating-related ones are only a few. In addition, these dating-related features have fewer activities compared to non-dating related features such as games and puzzle. It seems like the non-dating related features only serve as a distraction to its users instead of a tool to hasten up the matching process. Does the site really want to be a dating site or an online community such as Facebook? So far, it is more successful in creating a general online community that lacks the dating spirit. If you think this is not for you, you may browse through our Matchmaker category.
