After more than 5 years DateHookup has received a major Facelift. We are a little slow on reporting this since it appears to have happened in October of 2014. Gone is the navy blue and square box design of the Date Hookup of the past. The new DateHookup look is about simplicity with the use of a solid color pallet (in the pastel range) and an interface that takes up the whole browser window.

With the new facelift comes an almost completely updated list of features. Everything from profiles to searching has changed and been minimized. Profiles attributes have been reduced by half and interests have been completely removed. Searching has been reduced to gender, age, and location. You can filter these results by Best Match, Last Online, and Newest Profile. Email communication also have been dropped in favor of quick instant message type texts.

The upgraded membership has changed as well. DH Points are no more and so is all of the profile highlighting and the higher rank in search results. The new VIP Upgrade gives you a site with no ads plus the ability to see who likes you.

While the new interface is much nicer especially the large photo’s used when finding people I am not sure if I like the simpler feature set. It doesn’t really allow you to find people based on personality or interests. You can’t even search for a text phrase to find people using what information they include in their BIO. Because of this Date Hookup is now purely a Hookup only site. This is ideal for a person who wants to find someone who is online now, based on their photo, age, and location.

We plan to soon update our DateHookup review with all of these latest changes.
