There are the saddest people I've ever seen on such sites. If you go the the forums it's filled with nothing but hate; hate for the opposite sex; hate for newcomers; hate for posting a subject that's been posted before; hate for posting a subject that hasn't been posted before; it's crazy.
The favorite subject among the regulars seems to be the "how long since you've had sex"...
Crazy! I'll better keep on using my favorite sites: and

UPD: LOL, my pic fits so good here! :D

Used this a few years ago and amongst all the fake bull$#*! you get thrown your way I did actually manage to meet with 2 real people, but the volume of crap you have to wade through to find anyone who is actually a genuine human being looking to meet makes it a pretty wearing experience..

People seem to get really eager to bully others. Most are 50+ men who often act like 4th graders. That says a lot about users.

Whatever form of bigotry you are looking for: casual racism, sexism, etc., it's all there.

People who atand up to it get isolated and sometimes blocked.

This is a site that needs to be taken down.

Site Says free, then as you signup sends you to Match or OurTime dating sites.
Try for yourself. It is now 100% affiliate site for Match and OurTime or any other dating site willing to give them money.
So bottom line they are lying about free. I reported to Match, but I don't think they care.
I am asking them to remove them from being an Affiliate.
Also, your log on get removed so you cannot log in.

Someone needs to file suit against What a scam!!!! I signed up with datehookup one evening and then the next morning I tried to log in. I got an error message saying that due to inactivity, I had to reset my password. Hmm… 12 hours of inactivity and I need to reset my password??? I tried & the email never came. So, I emailed No response to date. I want to know for SURE that it was deleted. So, I tried creating a new ID and doing a search. Every time I tried it transferred me to match, ourtime, cupid, and others with a profile already set up that I had to delete. Now, I used the same ID & PW to delete those accounts but then couldn’t get back on datehookup with the same ID & PW. Then I tried to log in a few days later and got the error message that my account had been deleted. Another email to No response to date. Today I spent 2 hours with a different computer, location, IP address, email address and ID trying to get to to do a search and make sure my profile and photos had been deleted. Every time I tried to set up a profile on datehookup, it sent me to match, cupid, ourtime, and several others with a profile already set up. Today I called and was told about 10 times that they were not affiliated with Well, if you do a “who is search” you will see that, LLC is the registrant on That means that, LLC PAYS for the URL So, OWNS but they are not affiliate with them? I have no way of knowing if my profile and photos have been deleted and I am sooooo ticked about it. I won’t use or

UPDATE.. Re: log in redirect issue

In response to the below posters... you are exactly right about the redirect they have now. It wasn't always like that, it's very frustrating. At this point I'm sure most of you have thrown in the towel, but for others reading this..
Same thing happened to me as you described. Redirect over and over. I kept deleting my account after the redirects and reading the bug forums to figure out wth? finally I read a post that helped me.
I have a smart phone and a tablet. I downloaded the app and set up my account without any redirect. On the first try. If it doesn't work the first time try again. But enough new people are in the forums, people are defiantly able to make profiles and post.
I don't care for the app otherwise, because I use the forums and the app is not as nice for that.
Once you have an account set up, you can't post on the forums for two weeks, but you can send random strangers messages immediately if you feel so inclined.
Good luck David and others out there.

it's a free site, you pay for what you get. If you are just sending random people messages and hoping for the best, most of them won't get read.
If you are serious, spend some time and find a group or forum you feel comfortable in. Post, have fun, join the community.
Yes, there's a lot of fakes and trolls, but when you weed through the trash, you'll find some diamonds. If you take the time and effort. If you can't do that, go to e-harmony, fill out hundreds of questions and see where that gets you.

red flag one; one guy said he loved me after the first date.
red flag two; going to his house was a $#*!hole. cat $#*! on carpets all over the house.
The place was horrible.
Red flag three; he still had his wifes photo with him in the kitchen where you eat.
red flag four; he started dating three months after his wife died.
red flag five; he gave me an STD and lied to me saying he didn;t have sex with anyone but his wife. I found out he did have a woman at his place and they were having sex.
red flag six; he ended up in jail in her state for stalking and terrorist threats because she stole money from his dead wifes credit card.
This guy can lie to you to your face and I knew he was full of $#*!. He tried to make me feel guilty. He's out on bail and two years probation and has to take anger classes.
He wanted me to move into his $#*!ty house. He slept all day and never took good care of his health with his insulin. His body was so thin with a little pot belly that was unbecoming. No sex here even after std's!!
Need I say more?! Here's his datehookup id name; 52scadoo.
He is a wolf in sheeps wool. Watch out. he'll sweet talk you with words that he used to call his wife. He's not healthy nor good for any woman who has respect for herself.
I also found printout copies of local hoes looking for sex on his desk.
He said he wasn't cheating just wacking off to them. What a liar to my face.
He wants to control and have a woman live with him, but he doesn't care to listen to you.
He doesn't care about you.
I'm glad I opened my eyes wide. Then he started stalking me by using text messages.
I had to block him from email and from my phone.
Such is life.
Keep looking but take your time.
peace out.
Tired of mens $#*!.

Beware of this man on datehookup
I had a couple conversations with this guy on Datehookup. The first two conversations went well until he contacted me again. As we got into the conversation a little bit deeper he started drilling me for information. He was very rude, condescending and down right nasty when I didn't give him the information that he wanted. He goes by the name of Aldigi on I did send in a complaint about him but to no avail have not received an answer and to make it worse this guy is still on the datehookup. So ladies if your reading this beware of Aldigi. He will be really nice in the beginning but after that forget it. He will manipulate you during the conversation, so watch what you say. He should be banned from Datehookup. How many more men like this are going to ruin it for us just trying to find the man of our dreams

If you want to be harassed, stalked, & possibly murdered then this site is for you! They have absolutely no control over their accounts. Some men make a new account daily to harass women who've rejected them. They send inappropriate photos to strangers. You can block a user easily BUT you can't block their next account until after they make it & send a bunch of nasty messages. When you contact DH they tell you to block the abusive user. Well duh but like I said they keep making new accounts! They need to ban IP's like any site that cares about the safety of their users does!!

Overall, this site is full of a bunch of horny losers that think because a female is on a dating site she must be desperate & is obligated to want them. They suddenly have gulls they normally wouldn't have & approach females they would never approach in real life. Really, a 25 year old doesn't want to date a 55 year old! A lot of very angry men on there that made me run away fast. Sorry, I don't want to die! Then all they do is whine about not being able to get laid on their Facebook like wall.

That brings me to their set up. There's a wall. The opposite sex in your area are the only ones who can see it. The men think it's a truck stop bathroom wall where women are suppose to advertise themselves, not chat. There are friend requests. Who wants to see who their potential date chats with??? It's the most ridiculous feature I've ever seen on a dating site.

Of all the free dating sites, this one is the worst! For some reason scammers infest it. Out of 10 emails, 9 of them are often fake profiles. I get so tired of reading the fake emails and hitting the scammer button. I finally threw in the towel! Save your fingertips from falling out the information!!

No one ever wants to meet..people are too scared to meet, or if they do meet you, they dont want to see you again, even if you have a nice personality and decent looking. Some Married men are just trying to cheat on their wives on this site. Other single guys just want sex only and the ones who want longterm dont want to meet up..or too picky. I also sent messages to a few for a bit, then out of the blue, it said user deleted their profile...alot of the guys just treat women bad when sending messages, disrespect, and insults ...ALOT OF MEN ON THERE KEEP ASKING FOR PICTURES CONSTANTLY even when they saw what yu look like, this is so shallow. The only good thing about this site is you can chat ONLINE with someone whenever you want, but nothing ever goes past that.

Most men are attached to another woman already seeking pussy on the side or a penpal. If you are a BBW be careful because the men that talk to you online are most likely not attracted to you and just trying to take advantage of you so they can bust a nut. Sorry for being vulgar but its the truth. Don't fall for that "I love big women" crap. I want a man to like me for who I am not my big body. I'm not saying that ALL men aren't really attracted to big women BUT if they are not coming back for seconds, hanging out with you outdoors not indoors only..Sadly they just want to bust a nut with a fat chick and that is $#*!ed up and lets not let them. I just hate when they pretrend to be all into you, ask you all about your business but their main motive is to just bust a nut with a fat chick because they think it will be easier..ha! Yeah ok. I am a fat $#*! and I can have $#*! whenever I want..I just don't want no one using me for sex and I don't want to catch HIV.
The men and women on datehookup just bash each other trash.
Good luck
PS..Skinny, average weight, thick (slightly fat) women ALSO are targets...So don't think you women got it easy on these sites and are going to be taken out and treated properly and not lied to and played. But the fatties such as myself are the ones who get hurt the most.

This site isn't worth the effort - even for free. I'm a 50-ish guy, and my experience with ladies in this age-range was that few were actually interesting in meeting anyone. So many were bitter and angry, with huge trust issues. You can get a good indication of this by looking at the discussion boards (but be ready for a lot of profanity, lewd comments and outright racism). Hey, most of the people on here aren't paying a fee, so you can't be too surprised with the negative results.

This site is a free for all. In the current events and politics forums .
There you will find no debates on the subjects of either ,threads turn into nothing but name calling along with racist remarks .This site condones free hate speech
if the users are white. Others will be deleted . Customer service is a farce along with the site moderators that do nothing to the worst users that constantly harass other users. User agreement and two sets of rules for posting in that area are not enforced . Users have had their full names address phone numbers place of employment all posted in the forums from this group. Not safe .
I would not recommend this site for any intelligent debate on issues concerning politics ,or everyday events. Racists and bigots rule the forums.

Just got on this site yesterday and had a couple of responses to emails I sent out. Two different men who responded USED THE SAME WORDS TO DESCRIBE ME---"enchanting" and "captivating". Now I have never heard any man use these same two words to describe a woman before, let alone two guys I'd never met before on the same day from the same dating site. It seems almost like someone was coaching these two on how to respond, or else they're the same person with different pictures and profiles. I will not email either one of them again. I'm afraid he/they are up to no good and I don't want to find out what it is.

site makes its money from ads, when in actuality most members do not even click the ads, nor are they there for dating, they are there for the forums. The forums have gone all to hell for the past year. The new owners have very little moderation, as a result malicious users are allowed to control the site, posting members full names and address, and nothing is actually done. if long time members complain, they are delted. site allows known criminals to be on the site. all they care about is money made from their ads. Stay away, it is a dangerous place.

I felt that not enough men were joining this site-ages 55-70. I chose to date younger men than I I did statistics in 2 jobs, finding in Senior Cit. Ctrs. & Nursing homes, there are not enough men (when they get older0 to accommodate,. women. The site puts forth a few men that seem to dominate every aspect of an questions or activity that goes on, & one man`s picture is constantly put in front of everything.... he`s not an example. I find him boring & a needy person, that likes the attention anyone gives him....I don`t see that he is having any success in dating anyone. I browse, & keep seeing this one person, & it gets aggravating. Then I just go to another site, where there are more men.

Topic: Won't allow me to unsubscribe,, Columbus, Ohio

"I suddenly could not access my account (think they blocked me for some foolish reason; I never used profanity nor did i insult anyone), nor could I then access the unsubscribe page. I gotta problem here. who is the government agency I complain to about this?"

2. Prejudice (story from the complaints board)

Author: Madwoman

Date: Posted: 2008-11-13

Topic: Racism,, California

"I too have seen the racism spread at I went in there for a dating experience and found the forums to be very hateful and race filled. I have personally witnessed members who try and combat this racism, but their threads get pulled right away while the racial threads last months. If you stand up to racism there you are shunned and harassed until you leave. It often makes you wonder why you are getting your account deleted or getting on suspension. Peace seems to be a crime to this dating site while racism runs rampant and is rewarded. Many of the good clientele get sick of it and leave from the harassment. I am just wondering why there hasn't been some kind of investigation to this dating site. There have even been people commenting on death to a certain race and their thread still did not get pulled. It makes you wonder if this is even a dating site at all."

3. Profiles that are False (story from the complaints board)

Author: P.J.

Date: Posted: 2009-02-28

Topic: Fake Profiles

"A VERY good percentage of female profiles on datehookup are "fake" and I'm very tired of it. I'm assuming that it's the site administrators who respond to most the messages. You'll also notice, that there are quite a few profiles who have a "decent" pic of themselves but in the self description box, it says, "(no description provided)". When you send these people a message, asking them some basic questions, most of the questions are "dodged" and the respond back is so vague and impersonal that one can only assume that it is being answered by a site administrator."

Even though I like free sites I do not like all especially those that may be fraudulent. needs to be completely halted because it is seems to be more about being a hindrance to others rather than about actually "hooking up."

I recently became a member of DateHookup. My primary reason for joining was to participate in the forums and groups.I seriously doubt whether anyone actually gets a date on this site judging from the' 'Review my Profile' '
forum. Most of them begin with "What's wrong with me'" or "Why doesn't anyone respond to my emails",and so forth.Today I started a new thread titled Jehovah Witness or Mormon,which do you find more annoying?It was going quite nicely,I had received 10 replies within 15 minutes or less.I decided to check out some other forums and return later.When I went back to where I had posted it (in the general chat forum) I discovered that it had completely disappeared. I went to the Help department seeking an explanation and all that was there was an F.A.Q list.I tried Contact Us only to find another list of questions asking me to choose what my issue was.None of the listings were remotely close to my question so I went looking for a place to complain and here I am!DateHookup is a joke as far as dating goes but the forums and groups were interesting.
