About Flirt

Flirt first hit the hookup scene back in 2009, launching a casual dating platform with a difference that quickly became popular. Since Cupid plc picked up its rapid growth, there are now over a million flirty male and female members in multiple countries!

Membership Base

There are over a million global Flirt users and 300,000 in the US. Of those, 80,000 logins per week - so it's not an app that stands still!
You'll find that 60% of members are women and 40% men, and sexuality is diverse with a wide range of people.
The most popular age group is 20-35, although you'll find users from 18+ and right up to mature singles! Most Flirt users are looking to chat, perhaps find casual dates, and most importantly, have fun, so it's a laid back community where it's not hard to find someone to get steamy with.

Flirt App

There isn't yet an app - but like all the best flirting dating sites, there is a mobile-optimized version that works perfectly on Android and iOS phones.
You can access all the same features and chat functions on a mobile as you can on the desktop, and the mobile version is laid out with simple icons and a toolbar that makes it user-friendly to scroll through.
Flirty singles can use the search tab and flick through compatible guys and girls with a grid layout for quick profile previews.

Costs and Prices

Premium membership costs:
One month $28.80 28.80/month
Three months $48.60 $16.20/month
There is also a trial membership for three days, from $0.99 per day, or a one-week membership for $1.00/day.

Flirt Special Features

Flirt dating apps are packed with features!
  • Like Gallery is a roulette matching game.
  • Flirtcast allows you to message multiple matches all at once.
  • Request More Info is a feature if you like the look of someone but need to know more!


One of the flip sides of Flirt is that it is known to have fake profiles, which isn't unusual for a low-cost casual dating site, but something to watch out for!
You can opt for Full Safe Mode for extra protection, which prohibits anyone who isn't a verified member from sending you a direct message.

Flirt Experiences First Hand

We found Flirt to be fast-paced, packed with far more members than we'd anticipated, and to be a simple casual dating site where you can showcase your personality with ease.

Sign up Process

Sign up Process
Signing up is beyond simple! Here's how it works:
  • Select from the dropdown box what gender you are and who you'd like to meet.
  • Select an age, enter your email address and choose a password.
  • Enter your location (this is automated, so no fibbing!).
  • You get an email with a pin code to verify your address.
  • That's it! All of the profile fields are optional, so it's up to you whether to fill them in now and upload a photo or leave it till later.

Profile Creation

Profile Creation
Creating a profile is also straightforward; none of the fields are mandatory, so many people leave their profile with little information.
The site admin reviews photos, so you won't find many fake celeb profiles or anything explicit and need to comply with the site rules.

Searching and Matchmaking

As soon as you create a Flirt dating site account, you get a whole grid of recommended matches - but if that doesn't keep you busy, you can run your own search.
This works really simply:
  • Choose a gender.
  • Select an age range.
  • Define your minimum and maximum age.
If you take the plunge and go for an upgrade, you can use more advanced search filters to look for more specific criteria.

Contacting Other Members

There are lots of ways to kick start a conversation:
  • Find mutual matches on the Like Gallery.
  • Send DMs (if you're a premium user).
  • Use a Flirtcast to get instant attention.
Experts Conclusion
Flirt is a chilled dating experience, and while there are some caveats in that some members don't fill in a lot of info and that you do get some spammers, it's easy to use and simple to navigate.
There are improved security features, making it a safer app for new members, and with a growing user base, it's undoubtedly a popular dating option!


Does Flirt Have a Direct Message Limit?

It does; free dating members can send up to five complimentary messages. Women can respond to messages for free, and if you subscribe, your limits are lifted.

How Soon Can I Start Chatting on Flirt?

Right away! Direct messaging is a premium service, so you'll need to update - but you can see match recommendations instantly on registration.

Is Flirt a Safe Casual Dating Site?

Yes, there is a dating site admin who reviews photos and verifies members. You can choose Full Safe Mode if you have any concerns or report unwanted activity to the customer services team.
