DateHookup, according to their "About Us" page, tries to keep their website simple, straightforward and without too many bells and whistles to confuse users. With this in mind, the site provides exactly what it attempts to: a place for singles to meet other singles without having to pay any membership fee.
People can peruse the entire DateHookup site - including the date ideas and forums - without actually signing up for a membership. The profile process is quick and relatively simple, and doesn't have minimum character rules when it comes to the written part of the process - a nice feature when trying to sign up and look around right away, but not-so-hot when you want to learn more about someone that has piqued your interest.
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. As well, you can perform searches just to find others with similar interests. The search feature on DateHookup in general works well, and there are many options to find other people that fit your specific criteria.
Since DateHookup.com is a 100% free online dating site, all users have access to the same features: blog, customizable profile, forums, send and receive emails, custom search saving and a simple social networking option to 'friend' other users. There is no instant messaging feature on Date Hookup.
A very prominent feature on DateHookup is the forums, with some of the bigger categories reaching 7000 threads! Dating forums are generally the hardest part of a site to grow, and it looks like they have that on lockdown. That is due to many years of promotion and slow exponential growth, and they are now reaping all the search engine traffic from it. It will take a while before Datepad has a forum that is that active, but all in good time. Congratulations on that DateHookup!
