Youcanggetme.com sounds like the project site of a person who is attracted to being stalked, but it is in fact a UK-specialist dating website. A quick search will bring up quite positive results, with most members having photos (you can also filter out those who don’t) and you should receive a decent number of matches for people in your area. When searching you will be presented with a series of avatars, their photo, age, location and a bit about them. This makes it easy to quickly scan through the members and get to the ones you’re most interested in.
The site’s presentation is a bit of a letdown; a series of hyperlinks in a side bar and top bar, which quickly become generic and indistinguishable at a glance. Clicking on any sort of communication with a member, if you’ve not paid a membership, also takes you to their secure payment page. You cannot see a photo in any detail (you can only see the thumbnail for free) or chat to them without first having paid for the privilege. This can be tiresome, a free trial with those features included would allow you a real sense of whether the site might work for you.
Youcangetme.com proudly boasts to be the first audio-visual dating site in the UK, meaning that you can have video or microphone chats with members. This is a nice feature because sometimes communication can be a bit misconstrued in text alone and it’s nice to see and hear someone before agreeing to meet up with them. But despite its claims to being the first, it’s not the only site which has this feature.
The help section has a long list of frequently asked questions but no search function. Again, it’s organised in a list of hyperlinks under standard headings, which makes finding an answer to a simple question a bit of a reading test.
If you do decide to pay for using youcangetme.com then there are a few packages available to offer a service which should suit most pockets. The free access suggests that you might become inundated with winks and chat messages, which could be a positive thing, though be wary of which ones are real and which are automated. Even blank profiles without a picture seem to get attractive men and women winking at them and messaging them, which seems suspicious.
Overall youcangetme seems a standard dating site with a couple of nice features. It’s not the easiest site to move around, though, and the consistent pressure to sign up and potential fake-IDs messaging you could be a turn off. There seem to be enough real people on there, though, some of whom are surely looking for someone like you.
