MeetMe is a social dating site in the most positive sense. The app allows men and women to chat about anything they want, and post photos and updates like they would on any other social media platform. Complete with profiles, search tools, dating games and photos - Meetme syncs your social and your single life.
Singles who want the social media experience alongside their virtual dating experience
You can sign up to MeetMe using your Facebook account, which will make it really easy to find friends and people you already know. You can also choose to use email sign up. For this, just enter your name, age, gender, email and choose a password. You’ll then be prompted to include your location.
In order to unlock chat and browse, you’ll need to upload a photo. After this, you can begin to build your app profile. Choose an answer to the question ‘What are you here for?’ from the answers: chat, friendship and dating. Do you want to meet girls, guys or both? It’s as simple as that.
When you access your own profile, you can add tags which help you show other singles what you’re about. These vary from foodie and sports fan, to netflixer or metal head. They’re fun and simple to use. Tell singles a bit about yourself with an open ended description, and don’t forget to fill in some profile filters like religion, ethnicity and lifestyle, or you might end up coming up short in the search results.
MeetMe will never charge you to sign up, browse and chat with singles on their platform. You can upload photos, play the dating games, and access all functionality for free. Extras can be bought as one offs with the help of credits, which start from as low as under $5 for 250. MeetMe partners with some games, shopping and survey websites where you can win credits for free by completing offers and tasks.
You can however sign up for MeetMe+. This gives you priority view at the top of other singles inbox, enables you to try stealth browsing to look at other profiles incognito, and also unlocks extras such as profile themes to stand out from the crowd. You’ll also remove all ads on the site, and get 625 bonus credits to use around the site each month. MeetMe+ starts at $6.67 per month for 6 months, $8.33 per month for 3 months and $9.99 for 1 month. This may vary slightly depending on your platform.
The support section at MeetMe works from the desktop site with a keyword search tool. There are hundreds of questions and answers about every element of the site, which makes it really easy to find the results you need. From the app, there is a limited version of the FAQ’s, and you can submit feedback through a contact form. There are no direct phone numbers or email addresses for support there.
MeetMe is a basic chat and flirt site with some seriously social extra fun included. We love how the app is free for chat and flirt, and credits unlock bonuses such as stealth mode. Search is simple from the app, and the Discuss tab reminds us a lot of our favorite social media accounts. There’s always someone to chat to as well as photos and ideas to look at on tons of interesting topics.
MeetMe started its life as MyYearbook in 2005, created by siblings David, Catherine and Goeffrey Cook. It was rebranded in 2011 to become MeetMe, putting a focus on making new friends and meeting new people. Since then, over 100 million people have met, chatted and flirted on the popular app, and all completely for free.
