To sign up for Date My Pet, you’ll enter your birth date, name, email address, and a password. Next, you’ll be asked to upload a photo.
You’ll answer questions, including what you like to do for fun, what is your favorite meal, what is the most interesting fact about you. Then you will describe yourself.
Then, you’ll be asked standard profile questions, including your physical attributes, religion, and occupation. You’ll select your interests from a list. Options include pop music, outdoors, restaurants, and cooking. You can select all that you are interested in.
You completed your profile information during sign up. However, you can select what you are looking for by going to your profile. You can select the age range, height, location, and build that you prefer in a match. You can also write diary entries. Other members can read these, and it’s a great way to let people get to know you better.
You’ll need a premium membership to communicate on the site. With a premium membership, you can:
- Send and receive email messages
- Send and receive instant messages
- See who’s viewed your profile
- Create and read diary entries
You can conduct a basic or advanced search. An advanced search allows you to search by any information included in your profile. You can sort results by last online, latest joined, newest photo, or recently updated.
You can also find members by playing Encounters. You’ll see a member’s first name, photo, age, and location. You can select yes, no, or maybe. You’ll see who you’ve matched with, who liked you, and who you have liked.
When you view a profile, you’ll see any of their match preferences that you meet. You can send them an email or instant message, favorite them, or wink at them.
It’s a bit disappointing that there is no mention of pets in the profiles of Date My Pet. The site feels like a standard dating site, instead of one for pet lovers. Encounters and Diaries give you more ways to connect with others and find someone that you like.
