Smooch is the latest free dating website to hit the UK. All members can see profiles, search for members, chat and message for free.
The site is a lot more professional looking than it’s free rival Plenty of Fish though it does look poor against some of the larger UK dating sites like DatingDirect and Match. However, this isn’t really a problem as it’s easy to navigate your way around the site.
Smooch also allows you to rate photos though in order to see how rated your photo you need to upgrade to do so.
Searching for members isn’t perfect though. Whilst you can narrow your search to a region, you cannot search via postcode. For example, you can search for people in Devon but you cannot filter the search down into specific towns. This means that depending on your area, you could see a lot of people in the search results who live 50 miles away from you. It doesn’t make it impossible to search for someone, it just means searching will take a little bit longer for some.
I quite liked Smooch. It’s not perfect but it offers a fantastic service for a free site. It’s currently being advertised heavily on television so it’s popularity looks set to soar.
Although the main features of the site are free., you can upgrade to get extra features. This includes promoting yourself on the home page wall and seeing who has rated you or who finds you ’smoochable’.

- Advert Free Subscription: £2.95 per month (Billed in one payment of
Additionally, you can purchase credits on their own to use certain features. The monthly package still offers the best value for most people though buying credits on it’s own will allow you to specify which features you want. For example, this would be suitable for those who want to promote themselves on the home page but don’t care about seeing who rated them.
Smooch is great dating service. The free service should be more than enough for most people but should you want more, you can upgrade at a very affordable price. Recommended.
