NZDating is the oldest dating website in New Zealand, having been established since 1998. There are over 100,000 users and this number is constantly growing. In short, the service is a comfortable, safe and fun environment for meeting others in your area from the comfort and safety of your home or workplace.
In today’s busy world all types of New Zealanders from lawyers to young single mothers now recognise the advantages internet dating provides. The website is easy to use and provides all the facilities to advertise yourself, search and locate potential partners, send messages to friends and romantic interests and get involved in the 100,000+ community with events, live chat and message boards.
You can remain anonymous using their messaging and chat facilities for as long as you wish or until you decide to meet, phone or exchange emails.
How does it work? How much does NZDating cost?
It is free to join; all you need is an email address to signup with and create a profile. Free signup gives you the ability to place your own advert and contact other members. You can keep all your messages in ‘in’ and ‘out’ boxes, as well as an address book to keep track of your contacts and friends.
You have access to the message boards, chat rooms, and join in other member’s events and even daily horoscope readings. However with the free dating service you can only store up to two photos, which is a disadvantage associated with a free membership.
The site offers paid gold memberships, which are relatively affordable at only $14.95 for a one-month trial gold membership, $27.95 for three months, $39.95 for six months or $59.95 for a full year. While is obviously more expensive than free NZ online dating sites, it is still comparatively inexpensive.
A gold membership gives you the opportunity to dramatically increase your profile visibility and other members will take you more seriously. The additional features will also allow you to keep track of the members you are particularly interested in.
Features include an enhanced background and a gold star next to your profile, meaning you instantly stand out and highlight your sincerity. You can also add search features tailored towards what you are looking for, such as an auto block based on age – you can specify an age range that suits you.
A bonus of a gold membership is priority customer support and access to gold only members areas such as message boards and special events. You must be a member before upgrading to gold, and this gives you an opportunity to decide for yourself whether the site works for you.
Why wouldn’t I use the site?
NZDating is lacking a little in style and tends to have a ratio of two men for every one woman. If you are a man this may make meeting the right woman for you a little more difficult. However, in terms of functionality, NZDating works perfectly well and boasts a large member base. As always it is important to remember to be vigilant when meeting someone over the internet.
