Who Is It For/Demographics?
A dating site for Polish people and people of Polish origin who find themselves right around the world.
That’s the basic premise behind Polish Hearts.
And while that’s the majority of people who sign up for the site, it’s not the only one’s who do.
That’s because while those above are the main target markets for Polish Hearts if you aren’t Polish but would like to date someone who is, then, by all means, register for a profile.
Ok, so this is a niche site.
There’s no doubt about it.
And niche sites can be very hit or miss when it comes to the number of people that have registered to use them.
Polish Hearts user numbers | Impressive indeed
The team behind Polish Hearts are clearly impressed by what their website has achieved in its time online.
So impressed that when you register, you can clearly see just how many users it has.
That’s because it’s splashed across the top of the registration page for all to see.
And what’s that number?
Well, to date, over 1.7 million people have registered a profile on the site.
But let’s break those numbers down a little further:
- Around 245 000 users log in from the United States
- Close to 150 000 users are active on the site each week
- That’s around 600 000 active users a month, a third of all users who have signed up
No doubt about it, despite its distinct target audience, this is a very active site.
Which gender is more dominant and what about the age ranges of users?
It seems that on Polish Hearts, both male and female profiles are in abundance, but it’s not a 50/50 split.
There are more males than females but the gap between them isn’t that huge.
- 60% of the users of Polish Hearts are male
- 40% of the users of Polish Hearts are female
And the age ranges?
Well, the biggest group of users are found on Polish Hearts are between the ages of 35-44 years old.
Over a third (36%) of all users on the site are in that group.
Of that group, 23% are males and 13% are females.
The second biggest group of users on-site can be found in the 25-34 age range.
They account for 27% of the overall users and are split 17% male and 10% female.
Here’s the full breakdown of users per age group.
- 35-44 years-olds (36% of all users, 23% male and 13% female)
- 25-34 year-olds (27% of all users, 17% male and 10% female)
- 45-54 year-olds (20% of all users, 13% male and 7% female)
- 55+ (12% of all users, 8% male and 4% female)
- 18-24 year-olds (5% of all users, 3% male and 2% female)
Ease of Use
I was a little confused when attempting to make a profile for the first time as the site was all in Polish.
Luckily, there is a quick click button that you can choose your preferred language, so with a simple click, I had the English version and could proceed.
Registration is so simple and literally takes a couple of seconds.
You will provide the following:
- Your gender
- A username
- Email address
- Date of birth
Yes, it needs to be a valid email otherwise you won’t get your pin code to finish the registration procedure.
The overall design and finding your way around
Can I just say that I love the design of this dating site!
The main color is a deep blue and laid out in a refreshing manner that’s easy to navigate and pleasing to the eye.
When you first log on, you will be presented with a host of profiles that you can look through if you’d like to.
The first batch are new users who have registered for the site while the second are some of the most popular users on Polish Hearts.
To get around, you will use the main menu system which you can find just under the site masthead.
Your menu options here are:
- My profile: Takes you to your profile
- My photos: Here you can upload new photos
- Messages: All your incoming and outgoing messages are stored here along with any virtual gifts you have received or those you sent
- FAQ: Frequently asked questions about Polish Hearts
- Contact: Details about how to contact the team at Polish Hearts
- Buy Premium/VIP: Click here if you’d like to buy a membership on the site
Below the menu is the search tab.
Here you can launch searches for your own matchups based on your specific parameters but more on that later in the review.
Under the research tab is a set of secondary menus which include:
- My friends: Users you have made friends with
- Removed profiles: If you don’t want a certain user profile to come up in future searches, you can remove them. All of those removed profiles can be found here.
- Blacklist: Users you’ve blocked
- Who remembered me: People who have befriended you
- Who visited me: See who visited your profile
- My VIP list: As a member, you can add people to your VIP list and send them unlimited messages]
Unlike some dating websites were filling in parts of your profile is something you do during the registration process, on Polish Hearts, you’d have to start from the beginning.
That’s not a problem as the profile is pretty basic with all the regular information you’d expect.
So you will need to complete:
- Appearance parameters (height, figure, eye and hair color)
- Marital status
- If you have children
- Your education
- Your occupation
- Do you drink or smoke
- What you are looking for on the site (friendship, long-term, marriage)
There are a few longer sections too, for example:
- An about me section
- My interests
- What I am looking for in a partner
You can fill in as many or as little of these as you’d like.
Of course, the more people know about you, the better on a dating site, right?
With a large user base and a website that’s simple to use, any new users on Polish Hearts should be set up to find more than a few matchups that should be worth following up on.
So in this section, I want to take you through my experience on the site in terms of launching searches and then getting into contact with matchups that I wanted to find out more about.
Searching for love on Polish Hearts
I am a massive fan of dating websites where the search engine is right there on the front page where it belongs.
It’s the key aspect of any dating site and the place you will go time and time again.
There is simply no need to hide it behind menus or to make launching a search any harder than it should be.
So let’s take a look at the search options on Polish Hearts.
First up, you can conduct a search with limited parameters.
- Age range
- If they have a photo or not
- Distance from you
Those are standard search parameters that you would find on just about any dating site.
But there are advanced parameters as well.
To access them, all you need to do is click on the advanced search tab.
That gives you access to 12 other parameters that you can set to your exact liking.
There’s nothing new here and so if you’ve ever used a dating site, you would have seen most, if not all of these before.
And yes, they are based on answers other users have given in their profiles.
- Appearance parameters (height, figure, eye, and hair color)
- Marital status
- If they have children
- Their education
- Their occupation
- If they drink or smoke
- What they are looking for on the site (friendship, long-term, marriage)
- Their religion
Can you message people for free on Polish Hearts?
Dating sites make most of their money through membership, right?
They want to move from a regular user to a paying user.
The way they do that is simply by limiting communication.
And it’s much the same on Polish Hearts.
You can go to someone’s profile and click on the “remember this profile” tab which adds them to your list of friends.
Also, when you visit their profile, they will receive a notification that you did.
Or perhaps you prefer to send them various emoticons, which you can by simply clicking on them, for example, a smiley face, a rose, a champagne bottle or be a little flirty with a kiss.
But there is no way for you to message them without some form of paid membership.
Paid membership doesn’t only bring you the option of sending messages.
There are more features that you can use if you choose to become a member of Polish Hearts.
Here are a few of them.
1. More profile photos
It’s not that big of a deal but having more profile pictures can be a great way to draw attention to your profile.
If you become a member of the site, you can add up to five pictures to your profile.
2. Sending and receiving messages
Perhaps the main reason as to why anyone on any dating site would consider membership.
Yes, if you become a member of Polish Hearts you can send unlimited messages and receive them as well.
3. See who added you as a friend
Strangely enough, if someone adds you as a friend and you are a regular user, you will never know.
But with membership, you can not only see who visited your profile but who remembered you, the Polish Hearts term that means they added you as a friend.
4. Send gifts
As a premium subscriber, you are able to send gifts to other users.
5. VIP List
Premium subscribers with the added VIP option can add other users to their VIP list.
That means that even if that user is not a member of the site, the two parties will be able to communicate with each other.
If I am honest, the member features of Polish Hearts are the most impressive.
There are some interesting things there, however, for example, the VIP list.
The thing is, Polish Hearts membership can be a little confusing.
That’s because there is Premium membership and then VIP as well.
The thing to remember is that the main membership is indeed Premium.
VIP is an add on that gives you a few added extras, like the VIP list that I described above in the key features section.
So if you are thinking of taking out membership on the site, remember that VIP is an addition that you can opt for over and above the Premium membership package.
But what about pricing?
Let’s take a look at the Premium membership package first.
That has four different options:
- 1-month membership – $19.99 per month
- 3-month membership – $25.99 ($8.66 per month)
- 6-month membership – $40.02 ($6.67 per month)
- 12-month membership – $60.00 ($5.00 per month)
I am sure you would agree with me when I say that perhaps considering a three-month membership over that of the one-month option makes complete sense.
Two extra months are going to cost you just $6 more.
It makes complete sense to opt for that, even if you only use the site for two of those three months.
Longer membership options lead to even more savings.
In fact, should you choose the 12-month membership, you will be saving 75% if you base it on a month-to-month cost when compared to the one-month membership package.
But what about the extra VIP package, what’s that going to add to the cost?
- 1-month membership – $36.99 per month
- 3-month membership – $45.99 ($15.33 per month)
- 6-month membership – $64.99 ($10.83 per month)
- 12-month membership – $99.99 ($8.33 per month)
Once again, just like with the Premium package, when you combine it with the extra VIP option, there are incredible savings to be made if you opt for something other than the month-to-month package.
I think, on the whole, there are very well thought out membership packages and they do provide value for money that’s for sure, especially if you go for an extended one.
Conclusion and Overall Rating
Just about every nationality has their own nice dating sites, so why can’t the Poles or people of Polish origin.
All joking aside, I was very impressed with Polish Hearts.
It’s a website that draws you in thanks to it’s unique and inviting design, calm blue color and quality of profiles.
Here’s a site that links up Polish people and those of Polish origin all around the world.
You could be looking for long-term love or perhaps just a friend.
Polish Hearts certainly provides.
While it’s not big on amazing features like other dating sites, Polish Hearts provides you with what you need and a few surprises too.
It’s a dating site after all.
All it really needs is a clever search engine with advanced search parameters and a strong user base.
And that it has.
Of course, to contact those matchups that you’d like to chat to, you will need a membership.
That’s extremely competitively priced, especially if you are going to commit to a longer membership term.
In terms of fake profiles and bots, well, to be honest, I couldn’t say I found any at all.
The team behind Polish Hearts certainly run a tight ship in that regard.
So let’s give the site a rating.
I am going to score it a very solid 3.6 out of 5.
