Datehookup online dating site
Potential users can peruse the entire site - including the date ideas and forums - without actually signing up for a membership.
The profile process is quick and relatively simple, and doesn't have minimum character rules when it comes to the written part of the process - a nice feature when trying to sign up and look around right away, but not-so-hot when you want to learn more about someone that has piqued your interest.
The app uses your phone's location services to connect you with the other singles closest to you who also share your interests.
Happn: Happn's also about connecting you with people with whom you've crossed paths—whether it's at a cafe, work, or a party.
There are no fees to join or maintain a membership at Date Hookup, however (supposedly) you can purchase a VIP Pass to get additional, non-essential features such as access who is into you, a Hot List, and zero ads.
VIP memberships auto-renew, and are non-refundable as per the site's Terms of Service.
