In a Nutshell

Flirt is an online dating website that’s aimed at people looking to flirt and have fun. It’s not a matchmaking site and doesn’t try to help you find your true love—although that could happen too! Don’t expect questions about your interests, values, or background—the focus is on your appearance and your flirty ways. Flirt offers plenty of ways to communicate, useful search filters, and easy ways to break the ice and connect with someone new.

pros

  • Fast and easy signup process
  • Plenty of chat options

Signup Process

Signing up to Flirt is easy. Enter your email address and password, check your inbox for the confirmation code, and that’s it. Once you’ve created your account, Flirt will invite you to upload your photo. There’s plenty of guidance on the upload page to tell you what size your photo needs to be and the reasons why profile photos might be rejected.

Flirt doesn’t waste your time with long, boring questions about your personality. You’ll only be asked for basic information about your body type, hair color, and ethnicity. Flirt does offer a ‘status box,’ similar to those on social media platforms, for you to share what’s on your mind, but it seems most members don’t use it.

Matchmaking & Search Functions

Flirt is a site for flirting and meeting new people, so there aren’t any classic matchmaking tools to help you find ‘the one.’ You can get started with the search function which lets you search for potential flirts by age, orientation, hair color, eye color, ethnicity, and body type.

You can browse the profiles of men and women on Flirt. Choose to view profiles of people who are online now, only new members, or all profiles. Flirt also allows you to sort the profiles according to popularity, distance, age, and last activity.

If you’re a free member, Flirt only lets you see one cropped photo and some restricted personal information. You have to sign up as a paid member to view all of a member’s photos and videos and their ‘Looking for’ information.

Features & Communication Tools

Flirt offers a few different ways to communicate. You access them by going to your chat inbox, or by clicking the ‘chat’ icon on a member’s profile. You can chat using text messages, video chat, or send photos. Flirt uses colored check marks to show if your message has been received and read.

Flirt also allows you to use Winks, to show someone that you’re interested, or to send a Flirtcast. Flirtcasts are short, flirty, conversation starters that you can send to lots of people at once. You can write your own Flirtcast or use a preset suggestion.

One last feature that you’ll like on Flirt is the Like Gallery. When you visit the Like Gallery, you’ll be shown one member’s image at a time, and you can click the X or the heart button to show if you find them cute or not. If you click the heart, you’ll be connected through messenger to keep the spark going.

Safety & Security

Flirt has a very sensible set of safe dating advice on the website, but it makes it quite clear in the Terms of Use that you are responsible for your own safety. Flirt doesn’t carry out any background checks, criminal checks, or other checks on any member, although you can get a ‘verified member’ status by calling the Flirt customer service line. Verified member status only means that this member is a real person and not a bot—it doesn’t mean that the member has gone through any kind of criminal or background check.

It's easy to block or report a member who makes you feel uncomfortable, although it's not clear if that person is removed from the site. Their profile just carries a note that they've been blocked by a member. Flirt says that it is quick to remove any offensive content. It seems like it succeeds because even though this is billed as a site for flirting and having fun, there aren’t any overt sexual messages or discomforting language in the public areas of the site.

If you want greater security, you can choose to operate in ‘safe mode.’ This means that blocked members can’t get in touch with you, and limits search results. You activate this mode by getting in touch with customer support.

Pricing

Free members can create a profile, view a limited portion of each member’s profile, send Flirtcasts and winks, read messages in the public chat room, and use the search filters. Women can message men for free, with up to 5 introductory messages per day. It seems like men can’t send messages as free members.

Full membership gives you access to all of Flirt’s features, including unlimited messaging and different message types, viewing full member profiles, photos, and videos, and using expanded search filters. 

Once you’re a full member, you still can pay more for Flirt upgrades – but there’s no way to find out what the upgrades are or how much they cost before you move to a paid subscription.

Help & Support

Flirt has a good knowledge base with plenty of helpful FAQs—although you have to find it buried underneath your profile icon first. If you cannot find all of the answers you need there, you can contact Flirt with a question, message, or to send feedback through a webform. There's no phone number or email address for customer support.
