DreamMates is a joint service with another online dating service called singleme. The two websites are on same network; both share the exact same design, the same member profiles and the same owner, Vintacom Media Group Inc. The homepages of the two websites are slightly different but both feature an identical tour and the same pages and features throughout. However, the visitor demographics are slightly different. When you join one of Vintacom's Relationship Exchange online dating sites, you'll be entering the pool for all of their dating sites.
DreamMates has a slightly higher ratio of men to women and their participants earn less and are older than the visitors to SingleMe and the Relationship Exchange network as a whole. This site gets only 1% of the traffic the top ranked site, Match.com receives each month.
The profile set-up process is simple and straightforward. You can join for free, but must sign up for the premium membership eventually. To begin making your profile, you enter your basic characteristics such as hair and eye color, education and smoking and drinking habits. The rest of the profile is quick to complete with a series of checkboxes to indicate activities, sports, entertainment, hobbies and interests.
DreamMates, as part of the Relationship Exchange, offers a standard online dating mechanism with a very limited pool of potential dates. With the options of dating, relationship or intimate encounters further diluting the dating pool, you are quite unlikely to find your dream mate. Try any of the higher ranked online dating sites for better options.
