Signing up to Flirt is very easy
All you need to do to get started is to enter your email address and password, then check your inbox for the confirmation code. Once that has been completed, you’ll be officially signed up.
Setting Up Your Profile on Flirt
Once you’ve created your account, Flirt will invite you to upload your photo. There’s plenty of guidance on the upload page to tell you what size your photo needs to be and the reasons why profile photos might be rejected.
Flirt doesn’t waste your time with long, boring questions about your personality. You’ll only be asked for basic information about your body type, hair color, and ethnicity. Flirt does offer a “status” box for you to share what’s on your mind, similar to those on social media platforms, but it seems most members don’t use it.
Flirt is a site for flirting and meeting new people, so there aren’t any classic matchmaking tools to help you find “the one.” Depending on what you’re looking for in a partner, you can use the search functions accordingly: you can browse profiles according to age, orientation, body type, who is currently online, who lives nearby, new members, and more. You’ll also receive notifications in your dashboard that tell you who is online now so you can immediately strike up a conversation and get flirty with that person who lives just a few minutes away.
If you’re a free member, Flirt only lets you see one cropped photo and some restricted personal information. You have to sign up as a paid member to view all of a member’s photos and videos and their “Looking for” information.
There are also some great features to help you get the ball rolling with your matches. The Flirtcast is one-this is a pre-written prompt that you can send to multiple matches and is a fun way to start conversations without the pressure of thinking up an icebreaker. You can also join the chat rooms to communicate with international and local members and to meet new people.
Flirt also allows you to upload a video to your profile, which can help you to get more matches by showcasing your personality and showing that you’re a real person, not a catfish. This can also help you to stay safe online, as you can be sure the person you’re chatting with is the person they’re claiming to be.
Flirt doesn’t carry out any background checks, criminal checks, or other checks on any member, although you can get a “verified member” status by calling the Flirt customer service line. Verified member status only means that this member is a real person and not a bot-it doesn’t mean that the member has gone through any kind of criminal or background check.
It’s easy to block or report a member who makes you feel uncomfortable, although it’s not clear if that person is removed from the site. Their profile just carries a note that they’ve been blocked by a member.
Flirt says that it is quick to remove any offensive content. It seems like it succeeds, because even though this is billed as a site for flirting and having fun, there isn’t any overt sexual messaging or discomforting language in the public areas of the site.
If you want greater security, you can choose to operate in “safe mode.” This limits search results and means that blocked members can’t get in touch with you. You can activate this mode by getting in touch with customer support.
