The focus is mostly on easy flirting and contact with other people, of course the needs for a stable relationship and sexuality are not out of place here, but the primary focus is just another. In addition, single exchanges score with a cheaper cost model. So if you want to start here, you are not wrong. 10 Single.de – For newcomers and bargain hunters For all those who are still new and don’t know exactly what to start with, I can safely recommend the platform Single.de. You will receive coins at the start and for certain actions (e.g. for daily logins), e.g. to write profiles. Those who need more coins can purchase them relatively cheaply. The platform has around 2 million registered and tested singles. The operation and the friendly design in simple white and pink are also impressive. Features Free of charge “Because you can always earn coins for free, you can also use the platform for free” Simple, inviting design “Simple but still nice to look at” Single star function “If you use this feature with coins, you get significantly more attention”11. Recommendation for dating sites 11 FriendScout24.de – Largest dating site in Germany FriendScout24 is the largest single site provider and has the largest number of members. Every week there are over 1 million active users with an average age of around 34 years. In addition, FS24 has received multiple awards and scores with seriousness and good service. You certainly can’t go wrong with this portal, but here too some are outraged about fake identities or annoying contract extensions. But this is a general problem in the industry. Special features Multiple awards “Test winner at Stiftung Warentest, Computer-Bild, German Institute for Service Quality (July 2013) and ONLINESTAR ’13 audience award.” Membership structure “High number of members. The focus is on a young user group.” High data protection “through TÜV certificate and SSL encryption”12. Recommendation for dating sites 12 Neu.de – a cheap alternative to Friendscout24 Neu.de was founded in 2002 and has been part of the Meetic Group since 2008. The partner exchange offers a high number of members (around 5 million in Germany), which results in good contact opportunities. The operation and the design of the site are also convincing. The many functional options and the abundance of customization options for your own profile are also very good. All in all, a successful dating portal with little to complain about. Special features Seriousness “TÜV seal of approval, S.P.I.N. (Code for serious partner search on the net) and various awards stand for high quality and seriousness at Neu.de.” Events “Numerous events are organized each month in many different German cities.
