Why has Date Hookup turned into a BAIT and SWITCH site?Although the website is open and retains its old members, Evidently it is no longer signing up new members; However, the site is not divulging that information to the general public.I first found Date Hookup in 2008 via HItwise, a statistical aggregator that looks at the top websites in a variety of categories and niches.At the time, the site created quite a stir by ousting some of the long-standing, top dating sites in the US in this highly-regarded ranking, so I had to check it out and see what the hubbub was.Potential users can peruse the entire site - including the date ideas and forums - without actually signing up for a membership.The profile process is quick and relatively simple, and doesn't have minimum character rules when it comes to the written part of the process - a nice feature when trying to sign up and look around right away, but not-so-hot when you want to learn more about someone that has piqued your interest.
I reviewed this site of my own accord prior to the companies having the same umbrella organization and updated the review in 2014 and again in 2016.
(The second time I did this, years later, the same thing happened - although I now had more than 50 pages of eligible bachelors listed, and still in a larger geographical area than I'd specified).
Some other notes of interest: the only options for search are heterosexual, gay or lesbian (zero options for bisexual, pansexual, or transgendered folks), the "Let's Meet" column is little more than clicking on a Yes, No or Maybe to meeting someone, in the Advanced Tab, you have have your specialized search queries emailed directly to you periodically.
I was on it at one point, then there was a problem with my account.
Now, I can't log on (says it doesn't recognize my username), can't reset my password using either my email address or username (tells me to contact support), AND I can't sign in as a new account (says email address is already in use)! You need to see the person and check them out yourself.
