Bisexual Buddy is a dating website created for bisexual people, bicurious people, and for couples. On the website who use the benefits that the platform brings them every day, and it says that it has numerous members worldwide. The website is available in multiple languages, and it automatically registers which country you’re in, adjusting the language of the website to your mother tongue – which is a pretty neat feature for people who come from non-English speaking countries or for people who don’t know English that well. The look of the website is modern, easy to use, and well put together.
The registration process on the website is fairly simple. You give yourself a username, a password, you enter your email address, your name, how you identify and what you are looking for. It gives you the option to identify as a bisexual male, a bisexual female, a transgender person, a transvestite, a bisexual couple or a group (more than two people). When it comes to setting up what you are looking for, you are offered the same options.
After that, you enter the country which you live in and the city that you live in (or the one closest to you), along with your birthday in order to ensure that you are over 18 years old. The website says that it protects the privacy of its users, since your email address or your other personal info will never be revealed on the website. In the settings, you can apparently choose to be more discrete by selecting certain members who are the only ones who can view your profile.
Once your profile has been created, you can start off by editing your profile. You don’t have a set of questions to answer, like for example on OKCupid, so this is a platform that solely functions on the closeness of another user and whether or not you like a user or not.
The site does give you the option to “enrich” your profile by adding more information about your looks, your education, what you do for a living, if you enjoy risky or public sex and what you are looking for. You can even add in what your perfect partner is like and what your perfect first date would look like.
All in all, this does give off more of a feeling that it's a hook-up website, rather than a dating website.
Differences between Free membership and Premium membership!
One thing to notice right away is that a free user can’t really do much on the website. You can send out “flirts” for free, to let other users know that you are interested. However, you can’t send a private message. You can participate in the chat room on the website for free and you can view other members for free. Some users have their pictures hidden and some don’t. When they have their picture hidden, you need to send out a request in order to see them. With free membership, you can search for your potential partner based on your preferences, location and age. If you want to search for your potential partner by interests (which you can add in your profile, as previously mentioned), or by username – then you have to pay.
Cost and Prices
The website offers 4 payment plans. The first is the “test” period, where you can “test” the platform for five days for about $5. The second payment plan is the monthly one, which roughly costs about $30. The third payment plan is for the period of three months which costs about $42, making it about $14 per month. And the final plan, which is a yearly plan for about $90 dollars, making it about $8 per month.
