ASLSingles is devoted to people who use American Sign Language. It is the only site in this category to cater to specifically one type of sign language. The criteria in profiles and search criteria are pretty much the same so it acts like a computer database enabling a computer-generated matching service called Super Match.
ASL Singles has a clean, simple layout and is easy to navigate. The idea is that people who use American Sign Language can find each other on-line for dating and friendships. This applies to all categories of hearing difficulty such as deaf and mute, partially deaf, deaf but can speak, and hearing. There is no guarantee that everyone using the site are ASL users but that is the idea. Or course, with any dating site there is no guarantee that people are genuine but in this case one would hope that it was being used appropriately for it to be a useful site.
On a quick search we came up with more than 100 men and more than 100 women aged 18-30 in the whole of the US. This is not a staggering figure for this age range in such a large country it has to be said, but suggests the site is indeed used by American Sign Language users.
Most profiles have pictures and they are of reasonable quality so have been screened to some degree. The photos are small on the search results but enlarged well on the profile page. We had to wait some time for the profile pages to load which is a downside. Also, there is no information to tell you how old the profiles are or when someone last logged on. It is a basic site.
There is also a same-sex search for males seeking males and females seeking females. The profiles seem honest and range through people looking for opposite gender friendships, long-term relationships and casual sexual encounters. Your chances of finding someone who uses American Sign Language are high, but you might have to travel some way to meet face-to-face. There are no special features on this site, so no chat rooms, events, ice-breaking games etc. but you can send "winks" and notes.
There is quite an extensive help page which covers user-name and password issues, photos, registration and subscription, profile editing and billing queries. These are all dealt with in the form of Frequently Asked Questions. There is a contact form for any questions not covered; you can send a new request and also see questions that you have sent in the past. This is run by a special piece of (Hesk) software especially for help desk queries.
This is the second highest price in this category for a one month subscription, topped only by the number one position. Some of the others offer a cheap daily trial deal but ASLSingles starts at $19.95 for one month. As usual, there is a discount if you subscribe for longer, so you would save 60% per month by signing up for a whole year of ASL Singles. If all of this sounds good to you, why not give ASL Singles a try and find ASL Singles near you.
