DeafSinglesMeet.com gives the best value for money of the paid subscription sites in the category. Starting at only £6.38 per month allows you to test the site without too much commitment. When you pay for longer periods the deal gets even cheaper, and goes down to as little as £2.62 per month when you pay for a whole year with £39.91. This is only a little more than the price of some dating sites per month! So what do you really get for your money?
As a free member you can access the basic features such as a basic search and view computer matches. Also as part of the free trial you will be able to access the "activity" features which shows who has added your profile as their favorite, who has viewed you. You can also send and receive "winks" which are a way to break the ice. When you start to pay your subscription you will be given full access to your private e-mail account. Paying members can also use the on-line chat feature, see who reads your messages and use the advanced search options. There is a great range of search criteria offering a very detailed search facility.
DeafSinglesMeet.com uses a user-friendly design that is simple and uncluttered but with some interesting features. One such feature is to be able to add "your current mood" to your profile. This makes it work like Facebook in some ways. There is a good range of profile features with plenty of prompts to inspire you. There is a browse feature in the form of a "photo slide show" which is a useful way to click through some photos. If you are interested in a profile you can click the box and it will add it to your "favorites" list. There is also another little age search box on each page to help further your browsing. This helps to keep the website active and keeps members interested. FYI this is a way on-line businesses increase their site's Internet traffic ratings by encouraging people to click on pages within their website. Used effectively it can help customers as well.
On a basic search we found 40 men aged 20-40 within any distance of a city location, all with photos added. This number is quite low but on further research it seems that many of the members did not add a photograph so un-ticking this box increased the number considerably. Profiles can be ordered by last activity date (when they were last on-line), newest, distance and their age. The profiles are clear to read and have a tag line and a short introduction alongside the photo if added.
Another search facility allows for options of sign language or hearing status. It is assumed that people using the site have deafness as a characteristic and will mention this in their profile, which is reasonable. It does mean, however, that deafness, hearing ability and signing skills do not come up in the match feature. When you view a member's profile you can see their match criteria, which is a short list including: Age range, Physique, Drinking, Education, Exercise, Height, Religion, and Smoking. With a full range of features, a good user interface and excellent value for money, DeafSinglesMatch.com is well worth a look.
