You may now fairly think something like oh my, great balls of fire! That’s the dating service of Blendr, which you have asked us to write about for all this time, and—there you go—it’s yours now! Weird, but you’ll have to spent much time to figure out any credible and detailed Blendr reviews, which would truly shed light on what the dating service is and how it really works (or not). So, HookupGeek will definitely let you know everything possible (and, of course, even impossible!) about Blendr!
Well, to start off, what is Blendr? As a matter of fact, Blendr is referred to the dating service based on the social networking principle. Some of its users tend to refer the app and the site to as the Blendr hookup service, whilst the other claim it to be another social network with the purposes of dating. So, who can use Blendr and what is impossible with the dating platform in question?
- you can search for the straight relations (including not only romance and friendship, but some more adult ties);
- you can be engaged in gay dating;
- you can be able to find the lesbian opportunities for dating as well; and, finally,
- if you prefer the bisexual ties, you can find them there, as well.
However, initially, it is paramount to mention that the web platform does not support any nude pictures and does not aim to provide the users with the casual hookup and sex, so you be sure that it is merely impossible to hookup Blendr.
Now on, as usually, we would love to pay your attention to the general information about the website, its registration, and legal bases to check up if it is a real site which has been officially and properly organized and registered.
- the officially acclaimed geolocation of the website is US (United States), FL, Florida, 33132 Miami;
- the website was initially registered in 2000;
- the initial name of the service was Project Amicus; but it was changed to Blendr in 2014;
- the dating service’s idea is owned by Joel Simkhai;
- Blendr is powered on the basis of the famous Badoo;
- the last update of the site took place in 2018;
- the Blendr site expiry date is 2019;
- the registrant company of the site is GoDaddy.com, LLC;
- the company was founded by Grindr LLC;
- the address of the headquarter is California, US.
- the approximately estimated number of Blendr users is currently more than 2 million people;
- about 78% of the users run the paid profiles;
- the percentage of men is 50%, so the percentage of women is also 50% with the service;
- the overall value of the web dating platform is estimated at $2 million as of the beginning of 2019.
Hence, the stats are quite convincing, yeah?
Now on, we would like to turn to the process of signing up. So, what you have to do to get it with Blendr? In order to get signed up with the Blendr com, that is the web version of the app, you will need to fulfill the following steps,
- you should first pick up who you are: a man or a woman;
- then, you’ll have to insert your email/phone number, password, and location (city and country);
- after that you will have to verify your email (which you indicated when signing up);
- what’s more, you need to upload at least one photo of yours, otherwise you will have no possibility to utilize the service mentioned;
- finally, you have to re-sign in your profile with the credentials you inserted when having registered.
That’s all in fact, so you can start swiping and using the dating website for free. However, there is also a paid mode, and we will show what it is like in the next section of the current 2019 Blendr review!
What about the functionality of the Blendr website and its features?
- as soon as you signed in, and your profile has been activated (it takes about 2 minutes), you will see the way how to use Blendr (that is kind of an educational short flash video);
- then, you will have a toolbar on the left and a picture of possible candidates centered, while on the right there will be some personal information of the persons you are showed;
- you have to either swipe the photo to the right, if you like a person, or if your don’t, just swipe it left.
- there is an icon of the photo you uploaded and your level of popularity, which can be increased by upgrading the profile of yours to the premium status (for more details, read the next section on Pricing);
- Encounters: in this section you will be able to set your sexual preferences (who you are interested in: girls or boys, or even both) and private details for the more successful search (the age of the partner and their location). By the way, you can modify your preferences as many times as needed;
- People nearby: it will show you the profiles of the users, who are located in the closest distance from you in order to fasten and simplify the search of yours;
- Messages: that’s clear, right? You’ll see the messages dropped to you and the ones, which you wrote to the other users;
- Matched: this tab will show you the profiles who liked you and who you liked, as well, so that you can start chatting and getting acquainted;
- Liked you: here, you will discover who of the users consider you to be nice and who liked you or who sent you the SuperLike;
- Visitors: you will be able to peep on who of the Blendr users visited your profile, and in case if you turn out to like this user, you can like them in turn;
- Favourites: you can save the profiles of the users, who you liked in order to get back to them shortly.
The toolbar will also let you see how to upgrade your profile and how to purchase the premium membership and credits.
- Be sure to fill out the profile of yours properly and in detail. What exactly to fill in depends on your goal in the application and lifestyle. Write interests—not necessarily detailed, just enlist the topics, which the girl will be able to cling for if you want to keep the conversation going. Optionally, you can add a pinch of humor to the description, just do not turn the profile into a set of funny quotes from the local tape. The average girl always reads the profile, so describe yourself so that the eye clings to it and she either has an interest lighted up, or at least a smile flashed—quite possibly, this will be what will play a decisive role in her likes. And then everything will depend on you only and exclusively;
- It is advisable to make your profile stand out from the crowd—a non-official photo or another distinctive idea, only without rolling into facepalm and clowning. We ourselves noticed, when having been swiping for a long time we put dislikes even to the quite normal profiles of girls only because the look is already blurred, and almost all the questionnaires are the same. By the way, such things as press-like photo and/or a photo with a car will not make you stand out from the selection of guys, even if all the mentioned components are outstanding. For some, it will surely work, but of those girls/guys with whom we had a conversation on the topic of the local contingent, many complained about the same uniformity in the design of the profile, and some said that such questionnaires were dismissed immediately;
- Do not like if you are not going to write. Seriously!
So, that’s now quite clear how does Blendr work. As a result, we can move on, at last!

Pros and Cons
Woohoo! We’re about to show you the pros and cons! Ready? So, let’s start it all now!
The advantages of dating service Blendr are comprised of the following points,
- The process of installation takes place very quickly, as the application has a very small weight due to good optimization. During the operation, the Blendr apk does not load the device and, therefore, it functions quickly;
- In addition to the standard function of adding friends, there is another kind of original list named Favorites. You can add especially liked or important to you users to it. You can also view who added your profile to the list of Favorites;
- You can always be able to analyze their popularity, you can view the guests of the page;
- According to the developers at Blendr, over 180 thousand users worldwide are online at the same time;
- It is possible to add extended information about yourself, as well as write interesting information in an additional field. This will increase the popularity of the questionnaire.
What about the cons? Yep, gee whiz, they are…
- regardless of the fact that the developers of the app claim that you can freely use the app on the free of cost basis, there are not that many effective tools to go at your disposal;
- you have to upload and verify your photo or, otherwise, you’d not be able to use the app (so, if you want to have some privacy and do not share your pics, it’d be quite impossible).
Thus, the pros are prevailing in this competition, which is a good news! Yabba dabba!
Oh well, it’s necessary to come across the security right away. A little spoiler by HookupGeek: the bases of security with Blendr app are marvelous! Why? Interested? Read on,
- in case of the profile cancellation, all (!) of your data are deleted (if you want to check it, so just try to re-sign up with the same email and phone number, and, you know what, you’ll succeed!);
- neither of the photos, chats or any other parts of your profile can be shared with any third parties;
- you can block the geolocation-based matching by enabling your VPN app or by having your geolocation switched off.
Thus, there are no real threats to the privacy of yours. Hence, we can refer the app to be safe enough for the usage! So, does or can Blendr scam you? Now way! We’ve found out no proofs to claim that Blendr scams! Cool!
Quality of Tools
With the Blendr app, the depiction of the quality of the tools can seem ambiguous to a particular extent, for the functionality of the site in full details is available only for the premium users. However, we’ll try to sort it all out in order to make a compromise between the free and paid modes of the Blendr dating services,
- the free mode does not ensure much effective tools, and this is quite obvious why;
- the paid mode gives all the freedom, and within it, the tools are marvelous;
- the claims as for the lack of the swipes a day in the free mode have been counted in, and their number was augmented;
- the ability to rewind the choice of the profiles is greatly built in, and it will let you succeed even more.
In general, HookupGeek is proud that we have a chance to review this app, since it now seems quite a nice option for those who need some more diversity.
About Blendr Dating App
The Blendr dating app is no longer just a program for an Android-based and iPhone-based smartphone, but a cyber place wherein you can also store your own unique universe, where very active and interesting people live. Each user is very interested in finding new friends and interlocutors. Friends from other countries are especially appreciated, as they can teach the specifics of their language. To get to know them, you just need to select the necessary country in the search.
The app is available for,
- Android; and
- Win Phone
What about the way the app functions? In this Blendr app review we will also depict it along with how the app is different from Tinder or Badoo.
The selection of the candidate is rather weak, since there are no profiles: The reviews on the site are ambiguous, it will be interesting to know foreign languages well here. In a café or cinema you go with an already liked person. While the offline scheme works the other way around: you go to the movies, hoping for a successful acquaintance. So far, about 1.5 million questionnaires are registered with Blendr, and, as some of the reviewers believe, the functionality is poor, since there are very few reviews, so it is difficult to draw any specific conclusion.
What we know about Blendr app? And how, for instance, does the opposition of Blendr vs Badoo look like?
- Today, Blendr covers 15 countries and more than a half a million people;
- Unfortunately, the resource reviews are mostly negative since the users claim that Blendr is another clone of Badoo, where every day, millions of messages are sent via Badoo, and its audience is millions of registered users from all over the world;
- With the Badoo app, every month, 60 million people find themselves a new couple with the help of the application, and during the day the audience of Blendr is increased by thousands of users. Due to this, almost everyone will be able to find a mate for themselves, simply by specifying the criteria and selecting from the proposed list of matches. Since the application is used by people from all over the world, you can find a couple;
- With Blendr, the Premium account is not that cheap, that is it costs $12.99 per month. Without it, you can neither communicate nor view the accounts of other users. Obviously, this circumstance determines the prevalence of negative feedback on the resource. A suitable candidate is selected mainly according to the criteria of some initial adata compliance—upon registration, you must not complete a detailed personality test, which seems to be endless, like with EliteSingles, for instance.
Although the home page of both Badoo and Blendr has an indication of the complete safety of the user, spam accounts are enough here. In addition to the basic ones, there are also almost no paid features, which cost $ 12.99 per month.
In any case, Blendr is much different from Badoo. What is more, if the swipe system is considered, it’d be also suitable to compare Blendr vs Tinder. Whatsoever, that’s a theme for another review, we guess. The most important thing is that the Blendr website and the Blendr apk are almost the same and possess the same functionality, so that you will be able to successfully utilize both under any conditions and circumstances!

FAQ about Blendr
Unfortunately, no. Regardless of some similarities, you cannot have these two profiles—Badoo and Blendr—tight up, since these are not regular social networks like Instagram or Facebook, which, as a rule, can be connected with some of the dating sources. Thus, you cannot do it—and, actually,—there is no point in this. So use either Badoo or Blendr or both.
In case if you have any difficulties with communication as a consequence of errors of technical nature, you can direct these claims to the Support team of Blendr. What is more, in all of the other cases, “you can report any abuse or complain about Content on Blendr by contacting us via Feedback page, outlining the abuse and or complaint. You can also report a user directly from a profile, by clicking the ‘Report Abuse’ link on their profile, choosing the reason for the complaint and providing us with any additional information you think fit.”
