8.5 / 10
Without being free from faults, Meetic remains in 2021 a safe bet, as much by its popularity as by its reliability, its decreasing prices or its new functionalities and the organization of events which put it back at the top of the dating services … will note a moderation to the cleat which makes the hunt for false profiles and a good establishment in France which ensures possibilities of meetings almost wherever you are.

► The advantages of Meetic 😀
1 / Reliability and reliability
Meetic has been around for nearly twenty years and today more than eight million couples have been formed thanks to the site and its app. If the service has survived all the metamorphoses of the market to remain a key player, it is because it has always been distinguished by its seriousness, from moderation which constantly hunts for dubious profiles, to customer service. which has been awarded many times (Source: Qualiweb). All profiles are verified on Meetic, the site is committed to protecting the personal data of its users, who also have access to numerous confidentiality functions or protection against unwanted people.
2 / Decreasing prices
Registration is free on Meetic. You will be able to create your profile and view those of others without having to pay. However, to take full advantage of the services offered by the app, you will need to pay for a subscription. Where it gets interesting is that the price of these subscriptions is largely tapering off depending on the different options you choose and can drop as low as $ 9.99 per month. The fact that the site is paid offers another major advantage: those who are there are serious and involved in their approach.
3 / A popular site
The proliferation of dating sites or apps and market segmentation have not made things easier for singles looking for relationships. Meetic offers the advantage of being one of the most popular services and therefore of bringing together a very large number of registrants throughout France and in European countries. Wherever you are, there are Meetic users near you.
4 / “Events” and functionalities
The “events” or “events” in French are one of the most recent additions to the many assets of the site, Meetic is today one of the only dating services to offer and the only one to offer so many: workshops, parties, activities , aperitifs, weekends… More than 300,000 members have already participated in these events! There are some all over France and you can even go there with your friends.
Finally, regarding the functionalities, Meetic has been able to face the competition and now offers many tools to facilitate and accelerate meetings: geolocation, “shuffle”, “swipe”, incognito mode, “matching” etc.
► The less of Meetic 🤨
1 / Not ideal for sex-oriented meetings
Today the site especially emphasizes its “serious” vocation, lasting and romantic encounters are the goal of many registered and registered, but if everyone remains free to direct their research as they see fit, and to choose to indicate whether he is looking for a long or more fleeting relationship. It is true that Meetic is not necessarily the best choice for naughty encounters. Other services such as Jacquie & Michel Contact or Wyylde are more suited to light encounters.
2 / Not the favorite of young people
Because of its longevity, Meetic keeps an “old-fashioned” site image and most registrants are over twenty-five years old. There are of course representatives of all age groups, but if you are in your early twenties, it may be wise to turn to services that are favored by young people, Bumble for example, or even TikTok or simply social networks like Instagram, which if they are not dedicated to dating can still put in contact.
