Anastasiadate: review, pros & cons, cost & overall quality

For single men seeking romance & looking for a lifetime partner, there are many dating apps & sites have been developed. Some of them are more popular, while others – less. Some have a bigger number of registered users, while others have smaller. 

In today’s article, we are looking closely at the functionality of Anastasiadate, www.anastasiadate.com site. It is quite popular globally & up to this moment, has over 20 million registered users, with the ratio of men & women approximately 39% & 61% (1:1.5). The daily active users (going online at least once a day into the system) are around 3,000 people of both genders (that is, with over 99.8% of all registered users being inactive on a daily basis – quite a disappointing ratio). Depending on the time of the day & the day of the week, you can see from a hundred to a few thousand women online simultaneously – which is from 99.9% to 99.9999% offline of the entire registered population. 

Review of Anastasiadate 

The dating site shows the base of registered users of 20 million people globally. Among them, 4.5 million are US users. Anastasia dating service is aimed at making Western men meet women from the block of post-USSR countries: Russia, Ukraine, Czech Republic, Belorussia, Slovenia, Slovakia, Kazakhstan & others. 

The dating site has been around since January 1997.

Advantages & disadvantages of Anastasiadate

Considering its functions, cost & verification issues, Anastasia date is one of the most average dating sites, which we have encountered. Let’s look at each feature of Anastasia dating separately:

  • It’s generally pricey compared to other sites, where a man has to pay for every action concerning a girl – writing her an e-mail, chatting online, having an online phone conversation using the services of an interpreter & calling directly. We will consider it in more details in the Pricing section of our review.

  • It has weak verification system of anastasiadate profiles – anyone can receive a tick of ‘Verified’ profile after just verification of e-mail. Nothing else is being verified: passport & residential data, correspondence of pictures to passport, the truthfulness of social media profile. Thus, one never can be assured – with whom he is chatting & texting even if the profile is ‘verified’ – is it a regular person desiring to meet or a scammer with a thousand of same created profiles who just thrown a batch of different pictures into thousand profiles (and created the same amount of e-mails, which isn’t that hard).

As for the advantages, there are as follows:

  • There is quick registration, which does not require a lot of information from you to be filled. You can fill up everything afterward – to an extent, which you want. This saves initial time & allows you to define when you want your time to be spent.

  • Once you are registered, you can see how many ladies are online, their pop-up profiles. The more details you define about you, the more popping-up profiles you will see. 

  • Search. You can do the search based on parameters of girls’ personality, such as age span, country of origin, interests, filter users by availability of connection channels, height (but not weight, though), color of hair & eyes, body type, smoking/drinking, ID (if you know it) & a number of ‘other’ fields.

  • Transparent pricing.

The member structure of Anastasiadate

For each man, there are nearly 1.5 women. Mostly, the site’s aimed at Westerners (from the US, Europe, Canada, Australia) to meet Eastern women from post-USSR. You can find a lady based on a number of search fields, as well as through such categories as Sun-Seekers, Fitness-Fans, City Trippers, Nature Girls & Animal Lovers.

However, bear in mind that it is a large skew between the functionalities of interfaces of men & women: seems like men have to pay for everything, buying credits to obtain functionalities of communication & sending gifts, while there is no such payment for ladies (which explains the number of profiles of them on the Anastasia date site & opens vast possibilities for women-fraudsters). Also, we see no clear evidence that ladies can text or chat/video chat to men first – which makes the probability of legitimacy of all female profiles on Anastasia date site much lesser than expected.

Signing up into the dating site

It takes literally no time to register: just enter your username & password or choose an option to enter through Google & Facebook accounts. After the e-mail verification, you are sent to your personal page, which you can fill in optionally. But the more details you indicate, the bigger is the probability of matching with ladies you will search for. You can change or add your data at any time in the future. 

Every user is allowed to attach 4 pictures to a profile, one of which is going to be the main one. While communicating to a girl, you can attach your pictures as well – for a quicker representation of you.

Making contact with people

When you find a profile & see a likable girl, you have a few options to start contacting her:

  1. Start CamShare

  2. Start Live Chat

  3. Book the time for a conversation with an interpreter

  4. Make a phone call – only done through the Anastasia date App

  5. Send her a virtual gift

  6. Send her real gifts – which include flowers, chocolate, gadgets, perfumes & a lot of other stuff from the list that becomes available to you once you choose this option.

The quality of a profile 

To make sure the quality of a profile, you can:

  • start creating account (unregistered users also have access to the site but it is extremely limited)

  • verify your e-mail to receive a ‘verified’ profile tick

  • complete as many fields in your questionnaire as possible

  • upload quality profile pictures to be more likable.

The mobile app of Anastasiadate

Advantage of Anastasia date site is that it offers a mobile app – available for all iOS users with OS version 9.0 & higher & for all Android users with 4.0.3 version & higher.

Some options of using the site are only available through the app – like phone conversation option Direct Call, which only becomes available to users who have marked their knowledge of English as fluent or advanced. Remember that in addition to the Direct Call, a member can arrange the phoning with an interpreter – for the rest of users, whose English is not that well.

Usability & design

The design allows you to easily make search, add people to the wishlist of those whom you want to contact in the future & view the found or automatically matched profiles.

In the profile of a girl, you are going to see it categorized into 5 sections:

  • Profile’s data

  • Photos

  • Videos

  • Interviews

  • Letters.

Inside of the profile, it is easy to see her ID, to print the profile, to make a gift, to write or call, start a live chat & see the parameters she indicates. 

Anastasiadate cost

The entire usage of a site is based on the system of credits. You can buy them, from 20 to 5,000 in a go – with the cost of each credit getting lower as you buy more, from $0.80/1 credit to $0.40/1 credit. Sometimes, special promo offers apply.

The essential actions on the online dating site cost credits:

  1. 1 minute of chatting goes for 1 credit

  2. 1 mail costs 10 credits

  3. 1 minute of video chat costs 6 credits

  4. Live chat is mostly free.

Special features of Anastasiadate date & chat app

  1. Phone reservation: you can book a time & day of calling to a girl with an interpreter.

  2. Direct Call – only to App users.

  3. Sending flowers & other presents from the list – to many countries of the world, which are delivered in 3-6 days & you are handed with a picture of a girl with a gift.

Safety of usage of Anastasia dating

In the payment section, there is no SSL protection (although, oddly, the rest of the Anastasiadate site seems to have it). This means that the owners of the site & any other third party can obtain, keep & fraudulently use your payment financial data at any point of the future that they want. To avoid this (if you really need to pay), we advise you to use PayPal, which is a more secure channel in the absence of SSL.
