SportyLovers is a site for anyone who enjoys playing or watching sports, and wants to find a like-minded partner. Sports play an integral role in the matching, and you can search for members based on your sports preferences. You can find serious life-long partners, dates and hook ups on the site, with video options to really help sell yourself to potential dates.
Signing up is quick and simple, with the more laborious elements held back to complete later. Your profile includes a gallery where you can upload multiple photos and videos, plus all the information you might want to include about yourself. If you enjoy watching sports but don’t particularly like playing them, that’s fine too – you can explain this and seek out people with a similar passion.
There are several ways to communicate with other members on Sporty Lovers. Most commonly, you’ll either send an instant message or an email. However, members can also communicate with quick flirt tools such as winks or cards. There are a range of cards to choose from, ranging from sweet to saucy.
If you’ve spoken to a few members and would like to keep in touch, you can add them to your list of favorite members. This allows you to easily locate them again in the future so you can continue to chat. Members can upload videos to their accounts too, so visitors can find out how you behave and sound.
All members are matched to potential partners based on their preferences. This cuts out some of the time you might spend performing searches, and provides a few options you might otherwise have ignored. Alternatively, you can perform a search with plenty of options, including your favorite sport.
Sporty Lovers is a bit more expensive than we’d like. Its prices, whilst not unreasonable, do feel a bit high. For the monthly fee, we’d like a few more webcam options so that you could actually chat to members over webcam. The price might also put some people off joining, although longer contracts are available and they significantly reduce the monthly fee.
An additional VIP upgrade is available if you have the money and wish to open all doors of communication. Essentially the VIP option allows you to contact all members and receive priority listing in searches. Whilst this will greatly improve your chances of getting a date, it is a little costly, especially considering prices are already a bit high.
The site contains some useful tutorial videos for a couple of the more technical tasks on the site, such as recording videos. This is a simple and effective way of solving problems, and it would be useful if more of these videos were provided. That said, there’s quite a lot of information on the site’s FAQ if needed.
If you’re interested in giving SportyLovers.com a try, we recommend setting up a free account, completing your profile and getting in touch with a few members you like the look of, to see if they reciprocate. If so, the selection of communication tools is handy for getting to know each other better, plus the video options are rarely found elsewhere.
