Valentime Profile

Our Review

Another venture by Cellar Door Limited, Valentime joins the ranks of its sister sites Victoria Hearts and Romance Tale in giving singles a shot at love. In this site, cupid’s arrows connect over 4.5 million users worldwide.

Given the significant number of users, Valentime employs anti-scam protection to safeguard its members. An ID Verification feature is also in place, so members’ identities are checked and validated.

Despite the emphasis on real and secure romantic connections, several reports claim that Valentime is home to numerous bogus accounts. To see if true love does await at Valentime, we took the time to check out every cost and function of this international dating site.

  • Over 1.45 million monthly visits worldwide
  • Records over 350,000 monthly new visitors worldwide
  • Most of the members are singles looking for committed relationships
  • Top visitors are mostly from the US, the United Kingdom, and Australia
  • Male users outnumber the females
  • Most users are age 25 and up

Caucasian males dominate this international dating site, and quite surprisingly, their age range is close. Valentime enjoys a fair amount of attention from males aged 25-54 years old; in fact, members aged 55 and north are far more active than the 24-year-olds and below.

With this age range, it seems like the members of Valentime are in it with love and marriage in mind. Although casual dates or hookups are not thrown out of the window, it’s safe to assume that Valentime is a platform where you find something long-term.

Most of the women at Valentime are Slavs and are perfectly adept English speakers. Language barriers won't hamper flirtation, let alone communicating your feelings and thoughts, with these ladies. 

In terms of marital and parental status, most of the members at Valentime are single gents and ladies. Some of them may have kids from their previous relationships, but most are dedicated single parents who are not in any commitment.

For members of the rainbow community, the website may be a promising way to search for true love. Although, the majority are single men and women looking for heteronormative relationships, who knows? Maybe you’re probably bound to find the love of your life at Valentimes.

Signing Up

Valentime Sign Up
  • Must be at least 18 years old to sign up
  • 5-10 minutes sign up process
  • Answer questionnaires to register
  • Email verification is required
  • Facebook registration is not offered

Signing up may take quite some time because Valentime requires you to finish a three-part registration process. Note that the dating site does not offer an option to sign up via Facebook, so everything needs to be done on-site.

The first step is to fill out the registration form that will immediately welcome you when you visit Valentime. You will need to key in your answers to the following:

  1. Your gender identity and preference (man seeking woman, woman seeking man, man seeking man, woman seeking woman)
  2. User name
  3. Birthday
  4. E-mail and password

Tick the box if you read and agree with the website’s terms and conditions before hitting “Join For Free.”

You will be redirected to the portion where you describe your ideal man or woman. There are several questions here, so you may choose to skip (and answer later), or diligently power-through each query. The “About Your Date” section will ask you to describe the type of relationship you are looking for plus your type in terms of age, marital and parental status, and physiognomy.

After completing the previous section, Valentime will ask questions about you this time. You may answer or skip questions on your status, physique, and hobbies. You will also write a short description of yourself, plus upload a photo in this section.

Once done with the questionnaires, Valentime will send a confirmation link to the email you indicated upon signing up.

Make sure to click the link to finish your registration.

Making Contact

Valentime Contacting
  • Sending messages is a premium feature
  • Browse members one-by-one through Faces
  • Send out “winks” and “likes” for free
  • Standard accounts can add members to their Favourites list

As a warm welcome, Valentime gives you a freebie: 20 credits. This allows you to immediately start interacting with the members.

Once you consumed all 20, Valentime will prompt you to purchase more credits to continue the interaction.

At Valentime, you may get in touch with members through:

  • Like

Arguably the world’s most popular emoji, send a thumbs up and tell a member you like what you’re seeing. Even standard members can post one so go ahead and like all those who caught your eye.

  • Wink

Things are bound to get a little flirty when you send a subtle wink. This wordless interaction is available for paying and standard members alike.

  • Faces

Valentime’s version of the popular swipe feature, Faces lets you appreciate the beauty of the members one-at-a-time. Click “Like” if you find the member interesting and “Skip” to move on to the next member.

  • My Favourites

Keep all the members you find attractive in one place with your “My Favourites” list. That way, you won’t lose any chances because you failed to remember that one person’s user name.

  • Flowers of Gifts

Since Valentime’s is an international dating site, it may be quite challenging to show your affection through gifts, right? Not at all! Visit the gift catalogue and choose a gift; for a fee, Valentime will deliver right at his or her doorstep.

  • Live Chat

Valentime’s Instant Messaging feature lets you connect with members immediately. Note that this feature is only available for paying members.

  • Mail

So what happens if the member is offline? Let your feelings be heard by sending a mail. You can also attach photos and videos with this paid feature.

  • Contact Requests

If you want to bring your flirtation offline, you can request for the member’s contact details like their email address. This action will require a certain amount of credits.

  • Meeting Requests

Since finding true love is what Valentime is all about, features that enable you to interact with a member offline are available. For instance, you can request to meet a member after repeated exchanges of chats and mails.

Given the issue on the credibility of some accounts, the move to limit standard users access to messaging is quite understandable. Since you’re required to shell out some amount first, people with malicious intent may be disheartened and backoff.

Profile Quality

Valentime Profile
  • Reports claim there are numerous bogus accounts
  • View detailed members profiles for free
  • Easy to supply and edit information
  • Standard accounts can view full-sized photos
  • Uploading and viewing videos are premium features

    Valentime lets all of its members, paying and standard, to view complete profiles and full-sized photos of all users. 

    A Valentime profile is detailed; the name and location are all featured along with the following information:

    • Chat and Mail History

    If you previously got in touch, the messages you sent each other will be featured in this section. Note that the chat history is only available if the user is online.

    • Photos

    Most of the members at Valentime prepared for their photos. Beauty shots are typical, and members upload a generous number of images you can browse in full-size. 

    Members can also upload their raunchier shots in a private gallery; to view one, you’ll have to message him or her first.

    • Additional Info

    This section will include your answers to the “About Yourself” questions:

    1. Birthday and age
    2. Hair and eye colour
    3. Marital and parental status
    4. Religion
    5. Level of education
    6. Occupation
    7. Vices, if any
    8. Ability to speak English (beginner, intermediate, advanced, native)

    Given that there are plenty of reports regarding fake profiles on Valentime, the dating site included an ID Verification feature. Members will get a verified badge once they submit a filled out form and scanned ID for verification.

    Despite the efforts, we noticed several instances that made us think the reports may be accurate.

    For starters, we immediately received notifications telling us that we were getting popular. Our freshly-made and bare profile received views, winks, chats, and messages in a short period.

    Another thing we noticed is that there were a lot of accounts with the same name. We’ve seen multiple accounts named Olga, Maria, Anna, and Natalia. Granted, these were rather common names, but we’ve also seen our fair share of profiles for Ekaterina, Yulia, Oksana, and Svetlana. 

    These may be telltale signs of bogus activity or nothing more but happy coincidences. This is why it is important to view complete profiles. This step can help check suspicious accounts which can ultimately lead to connecting with someone real.

    App

    Valentime Mobile
    • No mobile app available
    • Website can be accessed through mobile browsers
    • Mobile version features the exact same layout as the desktop
    • Features minimal ads
    • Layout and text may look cramped and tiny when viewed on mobile screens

    For a dating website that’s been around for quite some time, Valentime doesn’t offer a mobile app. With people mostly on-the-go, an app could have been ideal for continuing romances wherever and whenever

    The majority of the members are age north of 25, and this may be the reason why Valentime does not have an app. They may know how to operate a smartphone, but a laptop or even a desktop is more familiar.

    For the younger users, they may access the dating site through their mobile browsers. However, the mobile view features the same layout as its desktop counterpart. Since a mobile phone’s screen is smaller, text, links, and buttons may look tiny.

    Like the web version, Valentime on mobile features banner ads of its sister sites. These are in strategic locations that won’t obstruct the view of users. Other than the smaller details, the mobile version features all the functionalities that Valentime offers.

    Real Life Review

    What I really like about Valentime is that it makes me careful. The deduction per movement makes me think twice. I actually look at the profile carefully before messaging a woman. On other dating sites, it’s easy for me to swipe left. Here, I’m actually looking at all of their details and just not their pictures and because of this, I am positive I’ll find someone special. - Neil, 27

    Design and Usability

    Valentime sports a simple and friendly design. Since the majority of its users are north of 25, they may not be as tech-savvy, which will make them appreciative of the neat layout.

    Dark blue and white are the dominant colours of the dating site. Green indicates a member is online, red is for the notifications and alerts you will receive, and orange is for the prompts usually related to payments. Overall, Valentime use clean fonts and boxy layouts that make navigating it a delight.

    There are banner ads that promote the sister sites of Valentime, but these are in locations that aren’t obstructing or distracting. At first glance, these ads look like additional functionalities you can enjoy at Valentime.

    Although accessible via mobile, it seems like it is better to explore Valentime on desktop. The layout requires bigger screens and navigating it on your mobile phone may leave you squinting.

    Special Features

    Aiding your search for true love are these notable Valentime features:

    Faces

    With millions of users worldwide, there’s a possibility you might overlook a member when you browse through Valentime’s list. 

    To make sure you appreciate a member one-at-a-time, Faces is the feature for you. Aside from displaying the member’s photo, the messaging options will also be at the bottom should you want to interact with said member. 

    Sending Flowers and Gifts

    Even if receiving gifts is not your love language, who can say no to a bouquet of roses or some fragrant perfume?

    Go the extra mile by arranging to deliver some presents right at the doorstep of a match. First, visit their profile and click the “Flowers and Presents” button. From here, Valentime will redirect you to their Gift Catalogue.

    Make sure you stock up on enough credits to buy anything from flowers, food, jewellery, gadgets, and even gifts for the little ones if your match is a parent.

    Note that Valentime will charge a separate amount for delivery. After confirming your order, the dating site will keep you posted on the whereabouts of your package.

    Contact Request

    This feature allows you to access a member’s contact information, such as their email address. This way, you can interact outside of Valentime.

    The act of requesting is free, but some steps need to be done before you can do so:

    • Complete the ID Verification process 
    • Used up a total of 3000 credits to interact or impress the concerned member

    Of course, it is still up to the member if they will approve your request. If it’s a tad too soon, they’ll let you know they prefer talking within Valentime.

    Meeting Request

    If you feel like it's time to take your flirtation offline, you may arrange to meet via Valentime. To set up a date, you’ll have to:

    • Complete the ID Verification process
    • Have 625 credits available for the request only. Any other expenses you will incur (airfare, accommodation, etc.) won’t be shouldered by Valentime.

    Like the Contact Request, the member will approve; if they decline, your 625 credits will be refunded.

    Editors Conclusion

    Datingscout.nz Editor Chris Pleines
    With the plentiful and varied users plus multiple ways to interact with members, Valentime seems to be the dating site of choice for when you’re ready to find the one. Still, it is plagued by the lack of an app coupled with multiple reports on bogus accounts. Members ability to manage all their actions with the Credits system, however, means members are more meticulous when they interact. Ready to find true love? Sign up at Valentime now!
