Although arabElove.com appears to be a free Arab dating website, you only get many of the same benefits that paid sites have to offer if you upgrade your account to provide unlimited emailing. Still, you are able to send a limited number of emails in a free account, making it one of the better free Arab dating website we have reviewed.
By signing up, you will have access to its many features, such as the giving of Flowers for the chivalrous, Winks for the flirtatious, and Kisses for the ambitious. This range of features should make you feel that you're getting the most out of your time spent online, though there are more exciting options around.
To step up the exchange with another member you have shared a Wink or Kiss with, you can either email or engage them in Instance Messenger. Working the same way as Instant Messenger, you simply click on the speech bubble icon found on every member's profile page, which sends them a notice that they can accept or deny.
An interesting and unique feature of arabElove.com is its points system. To promote your profile you need to earn points, which are accrued most easily by signing in to your account every day - 100 for each login! Inviting your friends to join the site is another way to earn points. Simply click on the Invite Friends link on the left hand side of your homepage, fill in their info, and receive 50 points as soon as they sign up for the site. Once you have accrued enough points, you can redeem them for perks such as highlighting your profile in search results or adding a more noticeable flair to your profile in the way of an icon. This will draw the attention of other singles looking for someone just like you!
This site eases you into online dating by emphasizing the friendship side of the site. While you may be searching for your soul mate, there's no harm in making friends along the way. You may even bump into an old friend along the way. The simple web design of arabElove.com makes for easy navigation.
If you're the kind of person that likes to get a quick bird's-eye-view of things, click on arabElove.com's Sitemap (a link at the footer of each page) for a bullet-point list of the various pages that make up the website. If you want to get a very quick feel for the membership base before signing up, the website footer also contains a "Members" link that displays a random list of members' usernames, locations, homepage URLs, and headline statements.
Members' homepages on arabELove are similar to members' Profile pages on other dating websites. The homepages contain a profile photo and a headline statement (e.g. "Just turned 30 and life has just begun!"); an "Interact with" section contains a range of colorful icons for sending the person mail, winks, flowers, kisses, adding them to your network or your hotlist, sharing on Facebook or blocking them. There are also personal details about the member, including their age, physical appearance, and current location. There are also sections dealing with their education, annual income, drinking and smoking habits, as well as their favourite things and the characteristics they are looking for in their ideal person. The answers will either be listed on their homepage or available if you contact them privately.
ArabELove.com is a great site for making new friends and eventually finding that special someone you've been looking for. It may not have as many members as our top ranking sites, but it's completely free for a basic profile. This is fine if you only want to send a very limited number of emails to communicate, but you may soon discover that this isn’t enough. At least they offer a large variety of purchase options, meaning you can quickly exchange off-site email addresses if you choose.
