C-Date.de – Casual dating website tested and compared
Overall impression: Rating:
On the online dating website C-Date (Casual Date) you can find sophisticated singles who are looking for erotic contacts . Here, more emphasis is placed on long-term contact than on a one-off fling or one-night stand.
The website is particularly suitable for singles who value anonymity and discretion .
Since the singles exchange was launched in 2008, the number of members has almost exploded. This is largely due to the fact that C-Date is increasingly relying on TV advertising. There are currently around 1,600,000 German singles registered with the dating portal.
The male to female ratio is 53 to 47 percent. So that's relatively balanced. However, it must be said that membership is free for women, while men have to pay a monthly fee to access all services.
What does casual actually mean?
If you want to explain this term briefly and succinctly, you could describe it as “relationship without commitment” . So both sides are clear that the fun factor comes first. An erotic relationship, so to speak.
Registration on the singles exchange takes place without any problems. After clicking on the confirmation link in the email, you can access the services immediately. However, a profile must first be created. Some information about the person (age, hair color, height, weight, etc.) and personal sexual preferences are provided.
Technically speaking, C-Date is very simple. The operation is intuitive and the website is also clear and tidy.
How is communication with each other?
What should be mentioned negatively is the fact that you cannot create your own text. Furthermore, it is not possible to search for contacts yourself. The contact suggestions are only taken over by the system.
A message can be replied to with a maximum of 1,500 characters. C-Date cannot determine whether a sent message is actually read. There are also five preset text messages, which, however, say little and do not represent a personal subject.
