Analysed for you:

RSVP.com.au

Australia's No.1 Dating site

4,5

Pros and Cons:

  • Ranked as Australia’s No. 1 original dating site with 1,200 new singles joining each day.
  • Purely Australian-owned, run and operated: pretty much zero possibility of overseas scammers!
  • Specific dating “deal breakers” you can fill out to ensure you find someone who shares your views.
  • Nearby members can be quite sparse, depending on where you live (you’ll have much better luck the closer you are to a city).
  • Searching and creating a detailed profile are free. If you receive messages from other members, you can reply to them. To enjoy unlimited contact, you’ll have to purchase stamps. For more benefits, such as being ranked higher in the RSVP name search, you can become a Priority member.

Test summary:

RSVP Login: Where to begin

Creating a profile to login to RSVP is quite fast, and literally within seconds you’ll be able to see all of the singles who live nearby. Naturally, you can widen your search to include all of Australia. However, in order to get the best “matches”, you should fill out the questionnaire that they provide. This will allow you to determine what you are and aren’t looking for in a partner. What’s particularly testing is the Dating Deal Breakers section. These will determine the character traits that you absolutely cannot compromise on.

In addition to being a dating site, RSVP.com.au also offers a travel and events section. There are numerous singles’ events that you can attend, as well as things like singles’ cruises and so much more. So, you’ll need to keep an eye on their blog so that you know what’s going on. It will help make the experience all the more enriching!

What sort of singles use RSVP.com.au?

Due to it being an Australian original, and having a wide number of features as well as events and travel opportunities, a rather diverse crowd of singles can be found on the site. This isn’t, however, much of a hook up site and rather an actual dating site: members are also considerable older with an average age of between 45 and 49.

Costs on RSVP

Naturally, you don’t have to pay to set up and account or even browse singles. What’s also pretty handy is that you can reply to messages that other people send you. However, in order to enjoy unlimited communication (instant messaging and internal email) you’ll have to purchase "stamps". If you want to improve the number of visits to your profile, you can sign up to become a Priority member.

Steps to success:

  1. Create a profile
  2. Upload a picture of yourself on your profile (11 times better chance of being contacted)
  3. Search, Flirt, chat, date...

Quality of user profiles:

  • Users fill out a detailed questionnaire to help you find your perfect partner.
  • “What I’m looking for” and “My interests” sections which are filled out by you.

Free services:

  • Create a profile
  • Search through members
  • Reply to emails
  • Send Icebreakers (called ‘kisses’ on RSVP)

Premium services:
