Smooch is a "free-ish" site and app that's mainly visited by people looking for flirting, chat and casual types of relationships. The site let's you join, search and communicate with other members. Additional services require credits, which can be purchased there.
Smooch advertises itself as a free site, which is sort of true since the majority of its services are free. However they do offer optional credits which will give you additional rights on the site. Completing a 2-page registration form, and the validation of your email address will give you access.
How it Works, and Who it's For
It's fair to say Smooch is aimed very much at the under 30s. You will find older people there, but the vibe is very much on fun, flirting, quick hookups and not getting too serious - rather than people looking for more serious dating and romance.
However, there certainly are a few members there looking for committed relationships if you're prepared to look.
There is no matchmaking as such on Smooch - it is only about striking up that first conversation. The rest is up to you. If you're looking for something a bit more in the way of help and guidance, I suggest eHarmony.
You can use the service in a number of ways. Through the website, or as many do through an assortment of mobile Apps. They offers Apps for Android, Apple and others. For convenience most people use this method to access the service.
Smooch does offer a decent range of features that will help you to get to know other members on the site quickly. The rate tool is fun, and lets you rate a random assortment of male or female profiles, which you can vote on. The site also lets you see who may be interested in you, that is, members who've rated your photos, or viewed your profile.
