Editor Review

IWantU is easy on the eye, but not on the amount of fun.
The Good

Registration is simple; the interface is a joy to navigate and well-thought-out; you can purchase a 3-day trial before committing to the premium membership.

The Bad

If you want to chat more, you have to pay for the premium package.

The Bottom Line

IWantU has a lot to offer, but some traits stop this dating site from reaching its full potential.

Member Quality

While there are plenty of genuine profiles on their system, the site seems to have a abandoned profiles. A lot of female profiles are left completely blank. This is usually how you spot somebody has left the platform. That being said, we have spoken to many genuine people on the platform, most of whom are interested in casual dating and hookups rather than anything serious.

There is also quite a substantial divide between male and female users. It is mostly men who are active on this service.

Sign Up is Easy to Do

Like many other dating sites we review, IWantU.com ensures registration is a painless process. Their priority is getting you set up and showing off what their site has to offer. You only need to fill in a few basic details, provide an email address and password, then you are a good to go – once you have verified your account, of course.

You cannot link your social media pages like Facebook, which is a disappointment, but you can sign in via your Google account.

Safe and Secure

IWantU is safe and hassle-free online dating experience. You can report and block other users who cause trouble, but there is little to suggest the IWantU admin team does anything about them. If you block these members, they can no longer see you in the search or contact you in any way.

Search for a Partner with Ease

Everybody who signs up to IWantU gets access to the basic search feature. However, you need to be a paying customer to get the most out of this site – browsing for matches included. If you pay, you can use the advanced search function, which lets you narrow down your results by age, location, orientation, and more.

The results are usually accurate, but it is sometimes difficult to find people based on your geographical location.

Contact with Minimal Fuss

Spotted somebody you like? Send them a wink or shoot them a message. You can chat privately if that is your preference, or you can take advantage of the IWantU chat rooms. This feature is a lot of fun and a great way to get to know somebody in a “social” setting, especially if you don’t mind raunchy dating talk.

Please bear in mind; you cannot send messages or contact people if you have not paid for the premium membership. You can browse profiles and check out their main photo, but if you want to get flirting, it’s going to cost you!

Our Expert Conclusion

While IWantU has a good layout and is pretty easy to navigate, there are too many shortcomings to ignore. As we conducted research for our review, we found this dating site to have a few fake profiles.

Of course, there is potential to meet locals on this platform, and we had a few good conversations with girls in our area, so IWantU must be doing something right.
