In today’s review, we are looking into a dating site that’s new on the scene.
Fast Flirting was established a few years ago and it does things a little differently to most dating sites.
First up, Fast Flirting claims to be totally free and says you can contact users from around the world, chat with them, post your own photographs, make friends and even flirt with others without paying a dime.
So in this in-depth review, we are going to see if that’s the case.
But we will also look into:

Who is it for/Demographics?
Quick and simple.
That’s what Fast Flirting brings to the online dating game.
It’s a dating website that’s aimed at singles who want to meet others from all over the world.
Maybe you are looking for long-term love (like you can get on eHarmony).
Fast Flirting facilitates it all and for all sexual orientations.
Fast Flirting | Some interesting facts
So now that we know that Fast Flirting is for singles of any orientation who are looking for a variety of dating scenarios, let’s look at some interesting facts about the site.
- The site was formed in 2018
- It is run from Australia
- Each month, Fast Flirting has around 170 000 visitors
- That’s just over 40 000 per week and just under 6 000 per day
- The largest percentage of users – over half of them – come from the United States
I tried to find a breakdown of the male versus female gender ratio as well as the most popular age ranges on the site but none of that information is available as of yet.
That’s understandable because as a very new online dating site, those details are something that’s built over time.
But that shouldn’t put you off because it’s worthwhile to check out new sites like this and help build a user base.
Of course, if you are in a smaller city, the chances of finding someone near you will diminish but there’s still no harm in trying, especially as registering for the site is so quick and easy.
Ease of Use
So let’s talk about the registration process and what you can expect to encounter while setting up your account and your profile.
Every dating site is slightly different when it comes to registration but in general, they all follow a similar route.
The first thing you will notice about the Fast Flirting registration page is that it looks a little bit like Facebook.
I had to check I was on the right website at first.
The first part of the registration process sees you inputting only two bits of information.
- Your email address
- A password
The second part of the registration process requires:
- Your nickname
- Your age
- Your gender
- The gender you wish to search for
And that’s it.
As soon as you are finished registering, you are taken straight to the website.
Again I did a double-take because, Fast Flirting’s design looks like Facebook, without a doubt.
And I like it.
It’s a crisp, clean design that uses a few shades of blue that really make the website stand out.
Its modular design makes it easy to navigate as well.
If you are a dating site regular, you’ve probably seen profiles on some sites that contain a ton of information.
That’s not the case with a Fast Flirting profile.
They only have a few basic details, most of which you provide during the registration process.
You will need to add the following:
- A profile picture
- Your motto (this is like an introductory paragraph, so sell yourself well)
- Your star sign
- Your country
And that’s it, the rest is already taken from your registration inputs.
It seems that profiles really aren’t that big of a deal on this dating site.
So it’s important that you not only nail the motto but your profile pic as well to get the attention you want and to make yourself presentable to people you contact or flirt with.
Fast Flirting | Navigating the site
I must admit, the overall design of Fast Flirting is stunning.
It’s a fun dating site to use.
But let’s talk about how you find your way around the site.
There are a few things you will notice first up.
Most of your navigation will be done through a menu panel on the left-hand side.
Here you will find the following menus:
- Home: Click this to return to the home screen
- Flirt with girls/guys: If you click on this, you will see a selection of matchups that you can look through
- Inbox: Here you will find any messages you receive
- Friends: If you choose to add someone as a friend, a link to their profile will appear here
- Who like me: See who has liked your profile
- Hot photos: A selection of user photos. You can few them by day, week and month.
- Search profiles: Launch your searches from here
- Settings: Change various settings here
- Help: Find solutions for your problems here
- Logout: Log out of the site here
You will also notice that many of these menus are repeated again in the middle of the main page as well.
Below that, you will see a list of all the users that are online at that time.
And with that you can see that this is a new site finding its way in the world of online dating because during my time on the site, there were never more than 250 people.
Overall, there are no surprises here at all.
All the menus have a function and pretty much do what their names indicate.
In this next part of our review of Fast Flirting, it’s time to talk about how the website operates.
And it’s a little different from other dating sites.
Searching for matchups on Fast Flirting
There are a few ways that you can look for matchups.
For example, you could simply click through the users that are currently online.
If you click the “see all” button on the main page, you can get a list of the users online and see their picture, location (just their country) and the intro paragraph of their profile.
Click on someone you’d like to get to know better and message them or flirt with them from there.
But more on that later.
The other way to search for matchups is by using the “search profiles” tab.
Even this doesn’t have that many parameters that you fiddle with.
These are your options:
- With profile photos
- Online now
Contacting potential matchups on Fast Flirting
Once you’ve run a few searches or found someone that you would like to chat to in amongst the online users, it’s time to reach out and contact them.
Again, Fast Flirting is a little different from other dating sites in that regard.
In what way, you may ask?
Well, in the best way possible.
That’s because it’s totally free!
Yes, you won’t have to spend a dime in your attempts to get into contact with a potential matchup.
All you need to do is click on their profile and then click on the “send message” button and type away.
Of course, they might not reply but at least you can send as many messages as you like for free.
But there is another way that you can show your interest to someone and that’s by flirting with them.
Again, this is a menu option found on their profile.
Click on it and they are alerted to your flirt.
They then either have the option to reject your flirt or accept your flirt.
Should they accept it, then you know that they are interested in chatting with you and you can take things a little further.
That’s where the flirt room comes in, but I will talk about how they work a little later.
Without a doubt, however, it’s refreshing to see a dating website where communication doesn’t cost a cent.
Normally, the ability to message someone is hidden behind a paywall on other dating sites.
I am not sure how Fast Flirting makes their money then because there isn’t any kind of membership that you have to pay for at all.
While Fast Flirting is completely free and you don’t have to pay anything to use it, it still has some key features that are worth expanding on.
1. Add friends
Not only does Fast Flirting look similar in design to Facebook, it even has some features that are similar too.
Yes, you can add other users as Friends.
It differs from Facebook because if you add someone as a friend, they are immediately part of your friend’s list.
In other words, they don’t have to accept a friend request to go onto your friend list.
2. Who Liked Me
Often hidden behind paywalls on other dating sites, a Who Liked Me widget is invaluable in your quest for love.
If someone has liked your profile, that means you’ve made an impression on them.
It may have been your witty motto or your good looks but it’s worth following up on, especially if they haven’t contacted you yet.
Just think about it, would you like someone’s profile if you didn’t want to get to know them better?
3. Hot Photos
A gallery of users is the premise behind Hot Photos.
But these aren’t regular photos, they are the best photos taken from user profiles.
Some can be pretty seductive if you are into that kind of thing but there is no nudity at all.
Hot Photos can be viewed in a few categories: now, today, for the week, and for the month.
4. Flirt rooms
I talked about Flirt Rooms a little earlier in the review but I just want to expand on what they are.
If you send a flirt request to someone and they accept it, you are taken to a flirt room.
This is a private chat room for just you and that user and it’s here where you can get to know them a little better.
Then you can see what develops from that point onwards.
It’s an interesting chat mechanic on the site and one that’s worth exploring.
Note, however, that not everybody is going to accept your request to flirt.
If they don’t accept it, you will receive a notification that your flirt has been rejected.
And that’s it for the best features on the site.
There’s nothing super impressive here but remember, they are all for free.
For me, the ability to see who has liked your profile as well as the flirt rooms are features that are well worth checking out.
Well, this section’s a little redundant.
That’s because, as I have already mentioned, everything on Fast Flirting is free to use.
There are no membership plans at all and you won’t have to pay a dime to use any of the features on the site.
To be fair, I am not sure how those that pull the strings at Fast Flirting have managed to pull this off for the past few years.
That’s because, you would think that as they aren’t making money off membership fees, there would be a massive amount of in-your-face advertising on the site.
And there isn’t.
Sure, there are adverts but they only appear at the very bottom of the screen and aren’t intrusive at all.
How long can they keep Fast Flirting free?
Well, I am not sure but it’s something they’ve managed to do so far and clearly they want to keep it that way.
I admire their commitment.
Conclusion and Overall Rating
Here we are at the end of our comprehensive review for Fast Flirting, a free dating site that I really think you should check out.
Registering for and setting up your profile on site is so easy to do and you will be online in a matter of minutes.
I really love Fast Flirting’s look.
It’s definitely taken a leaf out of Facebook’s design from a couple of years ago and finding your way around the site is easy thanks to the clean menu system down the left-hand side of the page.
I also love the fact that you have two ways of getting into contact with someone.
First, you can send them a regular message but it’s the second way that’s unique to the site.
Flirt rooms provide an instant private chat room for just you and the person who you flirted with or maybe who flirted with you.
But you have total control over if you want to chat to them or not as rejected flirts mean no flirt room.
There are some problems with Fast Flirting, however.
Because it’s new, the user base is very small.
That means that if you live in a smaller country, you might not find that many matchups.
I only found a few that were close to me but you can also talk to people on the other side of the world.
That’s the beauty of the internet, right!
I checked the site at various points during the day and night and I never saw more than 250 people online at a time.
Having said that, the site will continue to grow, especially because it is free, right.
So if you start a profile and struggle to find anyone near you, keep coming back as the user numbers continue to climb.
And well done to those behind the site for keeping it free.
Is it a model that can continue forever?
Well, I am not sure but for now, you don’t have to pay a cent.
So onto my rating then.
I’ve scored Fast Flirting a very respectable 4.25 out of 5.
And it would have scored even higher but I’ve had to drop the effectiveness rating, only due to the fact that I could not find many users near my location.
For you, it may be totally different in that regard and there might be tons of users near you.
From a features perspective, I’ve taken points off because even though they are free, they aren’t knockouts but can be useful and fun to use, especially the flirt rooms.
With the fact that it is free – and long may it continue to be that way – I think Fast Flirting is a site that will continue to grow.
It’s worth your while checking it out.
