Mancrunch is a dating site; it’s got a neat design and all the standard features of a dating site, so what’s so special about this one? What sets it apart from all the others out there? Well, for a start I’ve never seen it before and, as time goes on and more sites like this come on line, and they learn from the older ones. They pick up on new features and functions, and they simply add to the wealth of knowledge behind all these dating sites. So I am expecting good things from Mancrunch as I take my first look at it:
You can run a quick search from the home page. ‘I’m looking for guys near (insert a place) aged 18 to (insert an age)’ and click… and you find you have to register. That’s standard practice at dating sites and it’s going to take you a few, but only a few, moments to go through the process.
You make up your user name and password, make sure you use your valid email address and then you can add some basic personal details. The more honest you are here the better the contacts you will make. I’ve said it before but there’s no point describing yourself as a 25 year old Adonis when you’re a 55 year old Nero, you’re only go to be disappointed and cause disappointment to guys you may hook up with inside.
The next stage consists of a ‘five minute compatibility questionnaire, and it did only take me five minutes to complete thanks to the handy drop-down lists. Many folk are put off these stages as you’re often required to type, but not here. You’ve got a set of basic questions, you do need to upload a picture though, before you can proceed, and then you can if you want type in more details about yourself. All that done, in less than five minutes, and I was in to where I wanted to be: A pace where I could fully search who was online, who was not online but had pics, who was around and where they were from. I also noticed that I had other options such as messages, flirts, gifts, photos and private access, in a left side-bar. This is like a message center and I guess it gets used when other guys send you messages.
I had a basic membership going now, there were photos of who was online and I could search proper. There were some very detailed options here, right down to hair color, and when a guy popped up as a suitable match, I was able to see his photo and profile. I could also send flirts and messages and the like. I have to say these pages were neatly designed; Mancrunch has the look of a well designed and popular social networking site, with several functions that other similar sites don’t have. Photos opened neatly in a Flash player, the texts were easy to read, and there were private galleries, so people have to contact you in order to see your best, or dirtiest, pics I guess.
There are certain functions that are not open to you until you upgrade. Nothing is ever for free right? And that’s the case here as it is with most, if not all, similar sites. You can pay $29.00 a month for three months’ membership ($87.00 right off the bat), or $40.00 for one month premium membership. I thought that was a bit on the high side to be honest, but you do get some goodies for it: 100 credits to send ‘gifts’, you come up top of searches, and you can have unlimited messaging – and you get six hours exclusive access to New Men. (Not sure if that meant new members or a website…)
To sum it up; I found Mancrunch looked as good as, if not better, than some more established dating sites. I found it easy to register and use, though I did think it was asking a high price. A trial of one month at $29.00 would have been fine, but I was reluctant to part with three months’ worth all in one go.
