There are forums you can post questions to, some are moderated, some are not.

Or you can search for matches right now in the site.

Download IwantU webcam software (optional), view live cams or run your own live cam show. All live shows are members of the site, there are no models employed here. Some may be of an adult nature, just depends what club you're logged into and what that particular member is into.

Plenty of chatrooms on this site:

  • The Lobby
  • Support
  • The Bar
  • Free4All
  • The Park
  • Motel Suite
  • Red Room
  • Swingers Lounge
  • Sisters (women only chat room)
  • Unity Room (men only chat room)

You can view the chatroom logs for ANY chatroom for whatever reason you want. Chatroom logs are kept online for 30 days. You also get a chat Jargon explained section which is really handy if you've always wondered what all those little acronyms mean when instant messaging someone.

They also have a who is online right now feature, which is available at the top of every page.

You can jump between sites from your main IwantU homepage and search results/gallery results will adjust accordingly.


How User-Friendly is The Website?Website Interface & Usability:

The website is a pleasing color of purple, blue or red depending on which club you are currently logged into and it changes as you switch between sites. This is a handy reminder of what it is you are looking at, Dating, Adult or Alt. But the interface layout remains the same through out so there's no confusion as regards navigation as all three sites are the same.

This website is fast loading and well laid out. Basic members cannot view full members profiles, just browse through them. Although the members photos are slightly too small when browsing profiles, you can see larger full size photos by searching the photo gallery version. Members can also post their own photo galleries which can be accessed by clicking on just the one photo that pops up in the results of your search.

You can also view the photo gallery results in a slide show version if you want REALLY big photos to look at one at a time.


Main Description of Dating Site.Site
Description:

IwantU clubs is a Canadian based company that first came online in 1996, so its been around for quite a while and isn't a new fly by nighter.

As mentioned, the site is split into three sections and this works really well to help you search for people of the same mind set as yourself.

The fact they've been online so long and that their site is still on everyone's top 10 choices and going strong is a testament to the quality of the site. It contains a tonne of features all aimed at helping you meet and interact with new people.

Although you can be a lurker if you want to. But, as with any other site if you're not prepared to actually communicate with anybody, then you will never meet anyone and will hence deem online dating a failure. Which it isn't.

As mentioned earlier, this site uses a token system which seems to be becoming popular with a lot of the dating sites I've looked at. You can either buy some tokens to get access to advanced features or just contact a person you're interested in.

However, a more cost effective method is to become a paying member, this gives you anywhere between 4000 and 18000 tokens immediately, depending on how long you sign up for. This is more than enough for most users, believe me.


These Features Get A Thumbs Up :-)Pro's

What we liked about the site:

Short sign-up process only three pages.

Access to three different sites from just the one sign-up. You can easily jump between them with the click of a button.

Online instant messenger.

Chatrooms with webcam features and you can host your own chat room and invite other users to join your webcam show.

Users can organize their own off-line parties and invite other members to attend.

Text only chat rooms, moderated, free live online support and men only / women only chat rooms too.

Lots to see and do for full paying members in the IwantU cafe. There are polls, chatrooms, webcams, forums, online games, shops, picture gallery, send postcards etc.

Forums, chatrooms and webcam chatroom shows are free for all members, so is the live support.

Very good FAQ section containing the most commonly asked questions by members and potential members.

You can win free tokens when playing some of the online games.


These Features Get A Thumbs Down :-(Con's

What we didn't like about the site:

Profile pictures are kind of small when searching profiles as a basic member but full size photos are available as a VIP member. You can also browse profile photos as a picture gallery or slide show which gives them in a full screen size. So this isn't really an issue.

No video introduction features in members profiles but they do have audio and photos. (Depends if the member bothered to used these options.)


Well, Overall What Did We Think of The Site?Overall Verdict:

This is actually a pretty good site once you dig a bit deeper and have a look around. It goes beyond the basic 'here's some profiles and a chatroom' formula and tries to instill a better sense of an online community than some of the other mainstream sites do.

I especially like the way its split into three clubs, dating, adult and alt. So you know exactly what you are getting yourself into. There are some great features in the online cafe section and even the free basic members have access to enough things to decide if this site is for them or not.

If you're from America, Canada or Australia, this site should be in your top 10 sites to join. If you are not from these countries but wish to communicate with people that are, then again this site should be in your top 10 favorites.

Overall this site is definitely an above average site, worthy of 4 points. The effort they've made and the features available to members to try and get an active online dating community going are to be commended. They not only encourage you to participate but also become actively involved in doing something to bring like minded others together. The off-line parties are just one example. And it works!

The fact they've been online since 1996, are still going and have a rather high alexa traffic rank proves that IwantU clubs is a popular site. As with any of the sites in our directory, you'll get the most out of it by becoming a paying member but the basic membership is free for you to try with no time limit so sign-up and check them out. I believe if you give it a chance, and become involved in the chatting and interacting with other members, you'll make some great friends here and probably more if that's what you're looking for :-) Enjoy.


Hear what satidfied customers have to say!IwantU Dating Club Customer Testimonials I am writing to you because six months ago tomorrow I met the absolute love of my life from your service. I had tried and tried other services - I dont know what was different this time - I think perhaps there were more options and we were able to really say so much about each other before we ever contacted each other. He has helped me through good times and bad - we have had some type of contact with each other every single day since even before our first meeting. Never before have I experienced this type of unconditional love and security before. I recieved roses on my graduation day - breakfast in bed on a few occasions - he cooks for me all the time. we have laughed together and cried together. He is absolutely the most amazing thing that by far has ever happened to me in a very very very long time. Thank you so much for your service - and keep up the good work!
It has been about a month and a half since I found my way to your web sight - and met the love of my life a few days later! I did write a few weeks ago that things were going well, and things continue to get better and better. We have kept some kind of contact each and every day since the day we met six weeks ago. Everything fell in to place immediately. Our first date lasted seven hours - it went from dinner - to two hours in the lounge of the restaurant listening to a really cool band to two hours in a donut shop parking lot watching the snow fall. It gets better and better every time we see each other. He has rescued me off of the highway when my car broke down - TWICE and played chaufer for me during the whole car trouble deal. I have been really sick the last few days, and tonight he made me soup and curled me up under his comforter. He calls me when he knows I am driving in the snow - just to make sure I am ok. There are all these really weird coincedences like our sons and our cats have the same names and lots of other really weird twilight zone things. I am loving every minute of every day with him in my life - and I have your service to thank for him!!! I will continue to keep you posted....
I went into this site just hoping to find someone to maybe talk to and maybe even meet. I found this beautiful woman who I have fallen in love with as she has with me. Before meeting her, I never knew anyone could have that much love in her heart. I have been to see her and she is the most ravishing woman, on this earth. This is both inside and out. She has made my life so fantastic. I look forward to each and everyday I can talk to her or read her Iwantu message to me. I tank your site for making my life better then it hs ever been and letting me meet my dream of my life
Thank you so much for offering this site on a trial basis. I met my boyfriend on this site. He is from Chicago and was signed on for a trial basis. In the short time he replyed to my profile and we have been chatting/dating. I think it is very important to be able to take the time to get to know each other first and dating sometimes does not offer you opportunity to really express yourself honestly as much as emails in which you can be upfront and honest, if you want to have a lasting relationship. I live in Michigan and although he is far away I value the time that we do spend together. Just wanted to show my appreciation for your site, it has definitely changed my life.
