There are lots of options when it comes to dating sites for nerds, and just like any other site, Tendermeets has its advantages & disadvantages. Overall, the positives outweigh the negatives for this personal dating site.

Membership by-the-month is Expensive
Unlimited Messaging is for Premium Members Only
There isn’t a mobile app available.

What is

Tendermeets is a dating site for individuals looking to form personal connections & enter real relationships. Unlike some sites which focus on hookups or casual dating, Tendermeets focuses on love & romantic encounters just as equally. This is perfect for any self-described geek who is generally introverted or has a hard time breaking the ice, as everyone you talk to is also looking for love.

Member Structure

There are two types of members on Tendermeets: Free & Premium. Free users get access to basic features such as limited messaging, matches, “Safe Mode,” the Like Gallery, and use of the website. Premium members get access to advanced features like unlimited messaging, the ability to send photos/videos through chat, and extended search options.

Tendermeets App

Unlike some other websites, Tendermeets doesn’t have a mobile app, so instead, we’ll review the mobile web version. Literally, anyone with a phone or tablet has access to it (it’s not limited to paying members). The mobile version is similar to the desktop version but often uses icons instead of words. Still, it shares all of the same features & works just as well as the desktop version, so while it’s not a dedicated app, it still allows you to flirt on-the-go

Costs and Prices

As previously mentioned, anyone can use the basic version of the website for free. If you decide you want access to the premium features (such as unlimited messaging), then you’ll have to get a premium membership. NOTE: Monthly costs get lower if you purchase multiple months.
Duration Costs Total
1 month $34.99 / month $34.99
3 month $19.99 / month $59.97
6 month $15.99 / month $95.94

Tendermeets has taken adequate measures to ensure user safety on its platform. For starters, it has the basic features of blocking and reporting, which allow you to stop a user from contacting you & report them to the site administrators. Tendermeets takes one step further, though, with Safe Mode, which allows you to easily stop unverified or questionable members from reaching you.

Our Experience

Sign up Process

Sign up Tendermeets
The signup process of Tendermeets is very easy. You’ll need to provide your sexual orientation, age, and email (review this before clicking “Join Now” to ensure you have access), a password, and your location. Once you have that filled out, simply click “Join Now”!

Profile Creation

Profile Creation
After you’ve completed the initial signup form, a page will popup informing you that your account has been created, but you must verify your email. This is very simple to do. Just navigate to your inbox, find the email from Tendermeets, and click on the verification link. Once you’ve done that, you can upload a profile picture. After that, another page will pop up where you can add personal details (such as height, eye color, and piercings) to your profile. You will want to fill all of these out because Tendermeets only lets you see the fields in other user profiles that you’ve filled out on your own profile.

Searching and Matchmaking

Matchmaking Tendermeets
Finding your perfect match is a painless process on Tendermeets. Each user has information that they fill out on their profile, and the search function uses this information to allow you to use search filters. Thanks to the wide variety of filters, it’s easy to find the match you’ve been looking for. If you can’t find someone, consider expanding the search range or switching locations.

Contacting with Other Members

Contacting Tendermeets
As part of this review, we tried out the various contact methods on the site. The easiest way to connect with other members is by finding them through the search feature then sending them a direct message, but you can also send Flirtcasts (site-wide messages), find singles in the Like Gallery, or wait for someone to message you! Free members are limited to five messages before they need to upgrade, and you can only send messages. To read incoming ones, you will also need to upgrade.

Experts Conclusion

There are many dating sites for nerds & geeks on the web today, but Tendermeets stands out from the competition. Not only does it offer a simple, easy-to-use interface with all of your basic features, but it even allows free members the chance to send a few messages, which most sites do not. The pricing (per month) can be quite high, but if you purchase a multi-month plan, then we think that the price is worth the number of singles you are connected with.


Who owns

Tendermeets is owned and operated by Porticato Media LTD. This company has been in business since September 15, 2017.

How do I renew my Tendermeets full membership?

You don’t have to! Your Tendermeets membership will renew automatically, but we recommend subscribing to an extended plan if you want to save some money.

Can I block another Tendermeets member?

Yes, you can easily block someone from giving you unwanted attention. To achieve this, simply navigate to their personal profile, click on the three vertical dots on the right-hand side of the screen, and select “Block.”
