About German Friend Finder

 
URL : German Friend Finder
Year Started : 1996
Location : United States of America
Languages : English
Short Description : If you believe the stereotypes, the Germans are pretty much the most efficient people on the planet. But take one look at German Friend Finder and those preconceptions are gonna blow out the window. This German dating site is so dense, so complicated and so strangely run I'm still not quite sure what I've seen. Actually, German Friend Finder is based in the good old U.S. of A. by Friend Finder Inc., an enormous match-making website conglomerate that operates 15 online communities worldwide. Perhaps that explains why German Friend Finder is not just for people looking to find a German friend or even marriage partner. Sure, there are plenty of Deutchlanders from the Fatherland to the States logging on to search for their Achtung Baby, along with a German-language option, proving German Friend Finder is serious about its German-ness. But there are also a surprising number of sexual world travelers (men seeking couples, women seeking couples, even couples seeking couples) who appear more interested in alternative uses of der weinerschnitzel. German Friend Finder's widely varied membership can participate in all the usual dating website activities - chat, an interactive magazine (message boards that also encourage members to post their own poetry), instant messaging, searches of varying depth and speed, different forms of on-site email, two-way matching and more - provided they can make sense of the enormously complicated pricing plan.
Number of Members : 238,000
Overall Rating : German Friend Finder has lots of great features and is a fun online dating site.

German Friend Finder Dating Service Review

 
The Company : German Friend Finder is managed by Friend Finder Inc., a large, Palo Alto, CA-based company that operates 15 unique web communities.
Site Navigation : German Friend Finder's complicated design makes navigation confusing.
Site Response Speed : Fast
Sign-Up Process : Immediately sign-up for a German Friend Finder membership with no credit card required and a brief and simple profile quiz. After receiving a password and logging in, you are urged to upgrade to a paid membership. Once you wade through all that info (and there is a LOT) you are free to browse German Friend Finder.
Breadth of Services : Friendship, dating and relationship matching for Germans and people interested in German dating worldwide. Although many German Friend Finder profiles have little to do with German-ness and a lot to do with kinky-ness.
User Base : Heterosexual and homosexual, singles and couples, young and old from all around the world are served at German Friend Finder, especially those in the US, Canada and Germany.
User Experience : Logging on and setting up my German Friend Finder profile was easy, but everything about the site is so complicated I was almost overwhelmed. German Friend Finder's myriad of pricing plans were complicated, trying to view profiles was complicated (free members can see the list of profiles, but are blocked from viewing individual profiles in detail). It seemed like whatever I tried to do, I was taken back to that page urging me to upgrade to a paid membership.
Customer Service : Via E-mail or snail mail for standard members. Paid German Friend Finder members receive telephone tech support and faster response times for email support. More complete contact information, including several phone numbers, provided in Corporate/Press Room section.
Customer Service Hours :
  • FAQ help section
  • Email support via webpage
Registration Options :
  • Free registration
  • Fast activation
Additional Services :
  • Automatic renewal
  • Blocking options
  • Hide profile option

German Friend Finder

If you think Germans are the most efficient people on the planet, German Friend Finder is gonna blow those preconceptions right out the window. This German dating site is so dense, so complicated and so strangely run I'm still not quite sure what I've seen. Actually, German Friend Finder is based in the good old U.S. of A. by Friend Finder Inc., an enormous match-making website conglomerate that operates 15 online communities worldwide. Perhaps that explains why German Friend Finder is not just for people looking to find a German friend or even marriage partner. Sure, there are plenty of Deutchlanders from the Fatherland to the States logging on to search for their Achtung Baby, along with a German-language option, proving German Friend Finder is serious about its German-ness. But there are also a surprising number of sexual world travelers (men seeking couples, women seeking couples, even couples seeking couples) who appear more interested in alternative uses of der wienerschnitzel.

Fast to signup at German Friend Finder

Signing up for German Friend Finder is fast and easy. The profile is simple and no credit card is required. Once you receive your password and login, you will find yourself on a page detailing the many complicated pricing plans. If you do not sign up for one of these plans, you will get to know this page well. Because any time you try to get a closer look at the specifics of a profile or send a message, you will wind up back on this very same page. Yes, German Friend Finder may offer a free membership. But they really, really, REALLY want to sell you a paid one.

Three types of German Friend Finder membership

This means you need to make sense of German Friend Finder's enormously complicated three-tiered pricing plan (Gold, Silver and Standard memberships), which entitles members to different levels of service depending on how many deutschmarks - or dollars - they're willing to fork over. If that's not enough, there are additional fees to allow paid German Friend Finder members to receive email from free members and to highlight profiles for periods of one, three, six or twelve months. This is where German Friend Finder really gets nutty. The site seems to operate on the three-tiered class system, where those who pay a lot get the best of everything (including a higher-level of customer service!), those who pay a little get some of most things and those who don't pay can look, but they can't really get much else. Free members' access to email (you can only answer one in a 24-hour period), the number of profiles they can view and even the type of searches they can conduct are all limited. And German Friend Finder does not currently offer any sort of free trial where the site's full array of features can be enjoyed for a limited amount of time.

Find German dates all over the world via German Friend Finder

Sticking to my non-paying guns, I was able to check out German Friend Finder's most interesting FREE feature, a comprehensive geographic breakdown of all the site's members, by continent, country, state and city, including links to members in each category. I learned German Friend Finder's widely varied membership can participate in all the usual dating website activities - chat, an interactive magazine (message boards that also encourage members to post their own poetry), instant messaging, searches of varying depth and speed, different forms of on-site email, two-way matching and more. German Friend Finder also offers an IQ test, restaurant reviews, nicecards and a photo ranking system.

German Friend Finder has a solid user base of Germans and their admirers

Clearly, German Friend Finder has a lot to offer, as well as a lot of Germans, people who love Germans and people who have at least heard of Germany enjoying the many features. The site claims membership of over 200,000. Hundreds of men and women were online during my visit and the list of profiles I was able to peruse showed a wide range of ages and sexual lifestyles - although strangely, a lot didn't seem to have much to do with being German.

Looking for Germans? Check out this site

All in all, German Friend Finder provided an intriguing but mostly confusing experience for me. If you're German, looking for a German date or just looking for some alternative-style fun, I still suggest checking it out for yourself. But if you actually want to make contact with someone, you should be prepared to pay.
