UDate.com is an online dating agency with over 7,000 members worldwide (the majority based in Europe). It allows you to search for potential partners based on your personal preferences, including age, weight, height, hair and eye color as well as location and provides a matching service. With this service, once you complete a basic profile, Udate.com shows you people who match your criteria, potentially taking the work out of finding a partner.

In addition to the detailed search function and matching service, Udate.com also allows you to see who’s online when you are, look at new members through a photo gallery, and save people you’re interested in as ‘favorites.’ You can also see who’s been looking at your profile. Once you’ve decided who you’d like to talk to, you can do that through instant messenger or email.
UDate.com Pros and Cons Reviewed
A large membership base, meaning lots of potential matches are possible;
The matching service can save time as you don’t have to search through a lot of profiles to find someone suitable.
- There are almost too many options when it comes to completing your profile and searching for others, meaning it can be confusing and you might miss a possible match by not checking the right box;
- You must enter your zip code to join the site and can’t click on any of the features before this to see what the site offers;
- The site creates your password, and you can’t change this, a potential security risk.

UDate.com is free to try, allowing you to set-up a basic profile and take a site tour. Once you’ve done this, you’ll need to become a paid member to access unlimited profiles and send emails and instant messages. You can sign up for a monthly plan or longer.
The longer your subscription, the less you pay, and the site offers discounts for people signing up for three months. There are no refunds given, however, if you sign up and aren’t happy or find a match sooner than expected. Also, bear in mind memberships auto-renew.
UDate.com has a large membership which includes people from across the world, meaning if you’re looking for a partner from another country there are lots of potential matches. The site itself, however, is not easy to navigate and UDate.com reviews describe it as inflexible and expensive for what is offered, especially when no refunds are provided if you are not happy with the service.
Another issue is that many people set up the free profile to look at who else is on the site and do not take it further, meaning that members spend time talking to people who do not have any intention of forming long-term relationships. This could lead to UDate.com members being caught in a scam, which seems to have been the case based on some reviews.
