Our Review

Meet Me is a hybrid between a social media platform and an online dating site. Founded in 2005 by The Meet Group, the free dating website allows users to freely interact with other users through chat, streams and discussion threads via browser and mobile.

MeetMe's membership structure is diverse, meaning there are several potential matches no matter what age group you're in. The only problem is that the website follows the social media platform structure, meaning that their minimum age requirement is 13, unlike the typical dating site with its 18 age requirement. This means that minors are present on a dating site that may not be safe for them.

Signing Up

MeetMe Sign Up
  • New members fill out a short form with their personal information
  • It takes 1-2 minutes to create an account
  • Users are taken directly to their dashboard after registration
  • The site provides users featured matches instantly after registration

The signup process is very quick, which is both a good and bad thing. It is a good thing because the process only takes a single screen, and then the user can immediately start using the site. It is a bad thing because the site only requires the most basic of information. You are not given a chance to write down your interests and make yourself stand out. 

Making Contact

MeetMe Matches
  • You can filter the search according to age range, gender, sexual preference and location.
  • You can limit search results to only show members who are currently online
  • Profiles and pictures are visible to the public by default
  • Users can set it so only friends can see their profile and pictures
  • Sending messages to other users is free for everyone
  • There is a chatroom

The website has a free chat option, which is a double-edged sword. On one hand, it means that you can freely message anyone you're interested in without having to pay for a paid subscription. On the other hand, you are also vulnerable to unwanted messages from other members. There are a lot of trolls, rude users and perverts on the platform so getting dirty or inappropriate message is to be expected, especially if you're female.

Profile Quality

MeetMe Editing Profile
  • There are no strict guidelines against fake profiles
  • No background checks or identity verification is done on new members
  • Profiles don't offer a lot of information about a person
  • The profiles are poorly detailed
  • The profile information can be changed later
  • Profile pictures are visible to everyone for free
  • The user's entire profile can be set so that only their friends can see it. The same is true for the images. Users can set their photos to friendly-only.

There isn't a lot in terms of profile information. As a user, all the website asks from you is your name, location, sexual preference, gender, age and relationship status. Of course, they do have a biography field where you can freely write about yourself, but other than that, the site offers less information about their members compared to other dating sites.

App

MeetMe Match Suggestions App
  • The app's design is clearly better and more aesthetically pleasing compared to the desktop version's outdated layout
  • The app is user-friendly and intuitive. Most of the app's important functions are just a few taps away

MeetMe's app version is definitely better than its desktop counterpart not only in terms of aesthetics, but in functionality as well. With its app-only available features, users who are using MeetMe's desktop version are definitely missing out from the complete experience.

Real Life Review

The desktop version's design and layout looks outdated. It looks similar to Facebook's old design, and while Facebook has moved on to a more edgy, modern look, MeetMe has not. It seems evident that the people behind the site have abandoned the desktop version and is focusing more on the app version, as the app has an updated and clean look.

Special Features

MeetMe's desktop interface is pretty bland, but their apps actually have a couple of really good special features that make it obvious that the company is focusing more on its mobile users.

Questions

If you want to initiate a conversation with somebody, but don't know how to go about it, Meetme.com's Questions can help you out. Just ask other users a question and if they're interested, they can answer the question. Questions are sent anonymously,  and your identity is revealed only if the other user answers your questions.

Secret Admirer

Secret admirer is a fun game that users can play and meet someone new at the same time. The app gives you a notification that you have a secret admirer, but doesn't tell you who it is. Instead, it shows you several pictures of different users at the same time, and you have to guess who it is. You have 5 guesses, and if you don't guess it right, the secret admirer notification goes away.

MeetMe Live

This is MeetMe's streaming service. Users can go live and interact with their spectators. Viewers can like and send gifts to streamers in the form of diamonds, which streamers can convert into in-app credits or real cash later.

QuickPick

Available on the site's mobile app, QuickPick is MeetMe's take on Tinder's swipe system. You are shown a picture of a random user and you can show your interest or take a pass and move on to the next user.

Editors Conclusion

Photo Chris
Overall, MeetMe is more like a social media platform than the dating service, with its heavy focus on group discussions and social interaction. While the site may be a good place to mess around, have fun and talk to other people online, the anonymity and lack of security will make it difficult for people to find someone real who is interested in a serious relationship. If you don't want hookups and casual flings and prefer to connect with someone on an intimate level and find a life partner, check out our Matchmaker category.
