Founded in 2008, this casual dating site lets you flirt and find partners on the same wavelength as you, to spice up your sex life and live out your fantasies.

Main features

C-date is, at its essence, an affinity dating site. What makes it a bit different is that it focuses on sexy matches, and is designed to find sexual partners and not love. The profiling questions used to ensure the most effective possible matches are geared towards your sexual expectations and preferences. 
You can choose to share information about your profession and studies, but it is not compulsory. On the other hand, some lighter information such as details about your appearance cannot be left out. 
Subscription prices and formulas
It is free for women to join and use the site but men have to pay for membership to fully enjoy all of the platform’s features. Subscription includes unlimited communication, information about who has viewed their profile and access to members’ photos.

Using the site

Signing up to C-date.com is fast and simple. You just need to provide the following information:
Your sex (male or female);
What you are looking for (male or female) ;
Your date of birth;
Your marital status;
Where you come from (country and region) ;
Your appearance: height, shape, hair colour and style, eye colour
An email address and password.
After providing this information, you just need to validate your email address and then you can start using the platform. You can, of course, add a photo and additional information about your job and studies, if you choose to. To facilitate matches, you are asked to select from a list a question that will be sent to potential partners. Examples include “what makes you laugh?” and “what is the best decision you have ever made?” This is a simple but effective way to break the ice.
Every day, a question appears on your homepage. You can send your answer to members of the gender you are interested in. This is a good way of arousing the curiosity of other members. 
If there is one feature that really sets C-dating apart from other dating sites, it is without a doubt the possibility of defining your erotic style by selecting the five photos from a series of images that best represent your sexual preferences. The photos are divided into four categories: conventional, romantic, adventurous or wild. Once you have selected the photos that sum you up the best, your erotic style is determined based on the categories that these five images belong to. For example, you could be presented as “100% wild," “conventional and romantic” or “adventurous and wild”.
For an even more detailed approach, the site lets you set your search preferences based on your favourite criteria. This allows you to highlight your preference for oral sex, bdsm or threesomes, for example.
You can also select the type of relationship you are looking for from five categories, ranging from one night stands to long term relationships. You are free to choose one or several options, depending on what interests you.
When your profile is complete, your home page will display members matching your criteria. When someone takes your fancy, you can check out their profile, add them to your favourites or send them a message. You can also filter matches to see only members currently online and available for instant connections.
In the top menu, you can view the members you have added to your favourites, members who have visited your profile and those whose photos you have liked under the “contacts” tab. You can also access your mailbox to send and receive messages. 
In short, the site is very well designed and easy-to-use. With a streamlined, ergonomic design, the site has everything you need to quickly meet sexual partners for some fun.

Customer service and security

A help section is available in the top menu, accessible from all pages of the site. Here, you will find detailed answers to frequently asked questions. If you can’t find what you are looking for in the FAQ section, you can contact customer service by email. 
In terms of security, it is good to see that you need to validate your email address before accessing the platform and interacting with members. In addition, it is nice to be able to choose not to show photos to all members, but only reveal them to a select few. This means you can reveal yourself only to those you deem trustworthy. Personal data is also secured through SSL encryption to guarantee confidentiality. 

Why sign up to C-date

If you are looking for casual sex or a long term relationship, but not one that is guided by feelings, you will probably find what you’re looking for on C-date. On this platform, there are a large number of single people looking for a no-strings attached match as well as couples looking to spice up their sex lives. If you are looking for love, however, this is not the site for you.
