Our Star Ratings:
IWantU.com is an adult dating site with plenty of features, free standard membership and moderately priced Premium subscription rates. That said, the membership base is a little small and the look of the site is slightly jumbled, which can make it tricky in terms of navigating your way around.
It wasn’t possible to get the precise number of members registered on the site, but it’s somewhere in the region of several hundred thousand. At the time of this review there were just a few thousand on site, which isn’t especially buzzing. IWantU.com caters to a range of people including marrieds, singles, gay, lesbian and bisexuals, all of whom are looking more for casual encounters rather than romantic relationships.
Profiles can look a little cluttered but they’re quite detailed where complete, with plenty of saucy profile photos. That said, it was noted that there were quite a few potentially fake and inactive profiles. In addition to reading all about a particular member, you can rate their profile, send email, invite to text chat, video chat and send introductory icebreaker messages.
Joining IWantU.com is free and all you need to complete your registration is a valid email address. Free members can create their own profile and add photos, use both the quick and advanced search tools, send a limited number of icebreakers (1 per day) and browse limited profiles.
Should you decide to upgrade, if you take out a Premium membership you can save substantially by signing up for the longer term. Premium members get unlimited email, icebreakers and text and video chat, as well as creating a favorites list and sending a ‘flirtcast’. A flirtcast allows you to send a message to everyone who appears in your search results. If you’re keen to meet somebody you might take advantage of the ‘Meet me today’ feature, which needs little explanation.
With reference to search tools, the quick search allows you to specify criteria such as who you’re looking for, age range, location and filter your results to return only those profiles either with photo, with video or online now. If you need to be more specific, the advanced search allows you to specify a wider range of criteria including sexual preferences, physical characteristics, habits, lifestyle preferences and more. You’ll also find a zip code search, reverse search (by which you search for other members looking for people like you) and a one-click tab search listing all members online now. The FAQs site isn’t all that detailed but will help with basic questions. For everything else there’s an email form of telephone support if you’re a Premium member.
Once again, a pretty good site is let down by a distinct lack of members and online activity, lessening your chances of meeting people. Apart from a slightly cluttered appearance, everything else is pretty good here.
