While we have geek in the name the site is really usable by everyone. We've made an effort to make the site as open and accepting of different peoples as possible. That being said, we currently have 12 different gender identities and 18 sexual/romantic orientations selectable.
Note: Those who identify as "Transgender [FtM]" or "Transgender [MtF]" will be listed as "Boy [FtM]" or "Girl [MtF]" on their profiles. We chose to do this so that those individuals can feel more like their true selves on the site while allowing others viewing their site to know they're trans*.
The bread and butter for every major dating site out there is their matching system. What makes us so unique from the rest of them? We match based off of a more complete picture of who you are than most other sites.
While building a complete picture of someone is a difficult task, we've simplified it by breaking it down into 5 categories:
Vitals covers your basic and physical attributes about yourself, as well as what you look for in your potential mates. This covers your height, body shape, gender identity, age, and other information.
Values covers attributes that society tends to associate with your character, as well as what you prefer in your potential mates. This covers religion, politics, how many children you want, and other information.
Interests covers everything you're interested in that is not sexual in nature. Everything from comic books, movies, video games, hobbies, etc.
This is something other dating sites have but don't make a primary focus in matching.
Kinks covers everything sex-related from favorite positions to fetishes and everything in between. You name it. If it turns you on or gets you off it falls into this category.
This is something other dating sites barely ever touch, if at all. Normally anything sex-related is reserved for Fetish/niche sites.
Voodoo covers the astrology portion. Most dating sites have this in one shape or form, however, our's is a bit different than other sites. Instead of just doing the Western Zodiac, we also incorporate the Chinese Zodiac.
Here at geeklurv your privacy and safety are paramount to us. As such we've implemented various features and will continue to add and adjust features to make the site as safe as possible. Below are just some of the things we've done to help.
Harassment-Free Messaging stops your inbox from getting flooded. Most other sites, once you pay for a membership you're able to send messages to anybody on the site. This usually leads to female users receiving up to hundreds of messages a day from the benign to the most vulgar messages imaginable. On geeklurv, a request must be sent by the user wanting to send a message, and then approved by the receiver. Once that request is approved, both users may send messages to one another if they have the appropriate membership-tier.
Kinks are by far the most intimate information you provide us. While some people may feel completely open about their turn-ons and fetishes, some are not as comfortable. As such, Kinks are not treated like your Interests and instead--like messaging--requires a Kink request be approved before anyone can see your kinks.
Let's face it, the Internet is filled with some pretty creepy people. While we would love to only attract the best of the best, there's just no way for us to vet every person who signs up to make sure they aren't creepy. That's where our Creep feature comes in. At any time you can go to another user's profile and creep them. This will hide your profile entirely from their view of the site as well as hide them from your view of the site as if you had deleted your profile. This is done as a non-confrontational method of blocking to minify lashing out and overall improve the experience.
It is FREE to sign-up, send messages, and view the site. That includes activities that other dating sites charge for such as viewing your messages, reading discussion posts, and viewing who has hearted you.
We're currently in the process of re-vamping the site. The site is currently completely FREE to use. We will be adding features that will be available to paid memberships in the future, however, we won't be announcing those memberships until we finish the site upgrade.
Among various avenues of advertising available to us, we've chosen to employ various cosplayers from around the world to help spread our name at conventions. Since we're a geek company, we feel that cosplayers are an amazing combination of fandom, passion, and skill which is something many of us that identify as geeks/nerds value. For that reason we've selected an array of cosplayers to represent us.
