Whilst not geographically accurate, the term ‘antipodean’ is used (in the UK at least) to describe inhabitants of Australia, New Zealand, South Africa and sometimes also Zimbabwe. With so many antipodeans living in London, it makes perfect sense that a dating website exists to connect singles from the Southern hemisphere with each other.
So luckily, Antipodate has been set up for this very reason.
Internet dating is extremely popular in London – perhaps it’s because everyone has access to the world wide web, whether it be at work, at home, on their mobile or in an Internet cafe. Or perhaps we choose to meet our dates online because we’re so busy experiencing London, that Internet dating is just a more convenient way to find Mr or Ms Right….
…. But whatever the reason, in London at least, Internet dating is widespread, 21st century and has absolutely no stigma attached to it.
How does Antipodate work?
First of all, you sign up for FREE! and create a basic account which includes adding information about yourself, you should also add a photo. Whilst it’s not compulsory to add a photo, your profile will receive a lot more attention than if you opt to omit a picture of yourself. Antipodate chooses to put profiles with photos at the top of their search results list. Think about it – would you seriously organise a date with someone when you haven’t seen a picture of them?
A basic membership allows you to do the following:
- Make basic contact with another member (eg send them a kiss)
- Receive and view messages from other members – very exciting!
- You can add other members to your ‘Favourites’ list
- Conduct searches across the Antipodate database
- View your Sent and Received messages
- Register for competitions and dating events
As with most dating sites, there is also the opportunity to upgrade to a premium membership.
The premium membership option with Antipodate allows you to do ALL the things that a basic member can do, but you can also send personalised email messages to ANY member of the Antipodate database. So let’s say you see someone’s photo and profile that you like. As a basic member you can send them a ‘kiss’ and then wait and see if they can be bothered to get in touch with you. But if you’re a premium member, then you can send them a more personal and flirty (if you wish) message which allows you a much better chance of securing a date.
The costs associated with this upgrade are actually really reasonable on Antipodate. It’s either £7.95 for 1 month, £13.95 for 2 months, £18.95 for 3 months or £23.95 for 6 months.
Obviously if you were to choose the £23.95 for 6 months option, then it’s the most cost effective (it works out at £3.99 a month), but why not be more optimistic about your chances of finding love and opt for the 3 month £18.95 which works out at £6.31 per month and is less than buying you and your date your first drink!
Antipodate also offers you access to some of the best types of London dating events in the capital. Speed-dating is always a popular one, but you can also enjoy an evening doing activities such as wine-tasting, bowling, dancing and much more.
