(The second time I did this, years later, the same thing happened - although I now had more than 50 pages of eligible bachelors listed, and still in a larger geographical area than I'd specified).
Some other notes of interest: the only options for search are heterosexual, gay or lesbian (zero options for bisexual, pansexual, or transgendered folks), the "Let's Meet" column is little more than clicking on a Yes, No or Maybe to meeting someone, in the Advanced Tab, you have have your specialized search queries emailed directly to you periodically.
Nothing's wrong in using dating sites and apps as long as you know the risks and how to avoid them.
Just remember the tip I said above to reduce your chances of getting scammed online.
An interesting feature that works surprisingly well is the interests portion of one's profile; when you sign up, you're asked to make a comma-delineated list of the things that you enjoy.
Whether you list one item or many, every person that shows up in your search results later will then have your common interests listed below their profile.
It isn't pretty, and it looks almost identical to how it did when I first reviewed it in 2008, but, it works.
So with that in mind, here's a few things to take note of before sharing your information: I recommend Date Hookup to anyone looking to add a free dating site to their arsenal.
Its features are easy to use and the site well-populated with users.
There are no fees to join or maintain a membership at Date Hookup, however (supposedly) you can purchase a VIP Pass to get additional, non-essential features such as access who is into you, a Hot List, and zero ads.
VIP memberships auto-renew, and are non-refundable as per the site's Terms of Service.
