Pros & Cons
- Straight, gay, or somewhere in-between, RSVP doesn’t discriminate
- Fantastic safety and security support
- Many features make RSVP fun to use
- The stamp system seems unnecessary and arduous
Plans & Pricing
At RSVP, you have two main plans to choose from: The Standout Plan which gives you access to all of the key features, and The Premium Plan which throws in the ability to regulate who can contact you and view you.
The Standout Plan’s prices range from $14 a month to $20 a month, depending on the length of subscription.
The Premium Plan’s prices range from $20 a month to $30 a month, depending on the length of subscription.
Now, the downfall here is that even after you subscribe, you still don’t have unlimited access to contacting members at leisure without purchasing something called a Stamp. You can purchase these Stamps individually during your dating journey when you want to contact another member. RSVP also offers the option to purchase the Premium Plan with Stamps included. This plan will cost you $30 to $56 per month- but that will still only give you 3 stamps per month.
You are allowed to spend one stamp per member, which will allow you to openly communicate with that member. If the member doesn’t look at your message within 30 days, you get your stamp back. The monthly subscriptions are reasonably priced, however, the Stamp Program can get expensive depending on how many members you want to reach out to. In comparison to other Aussie dating websites, the pricing plan and contact regulations of RSVP.com feels a little stingy.
You don’t need the biggest pool in the world to find your one true love, but it sure does help. RSVP receives nearly 1,200 new members daily. Out of all those people seeking love, you only need to stumble upon on one person with whom true sparks fly. Consider that on this Aussie dating site, 40,000 conversations are held per day, which has led to nearly 1,000 RSVP marriages.

Ease of Use
Registration on RSVP is free! You don’t have to pay a penny and you’ll still get access to the majority of this dating website’s features. Of course, you’ll have to commit to a paid subscription in order to send messages to partners who you’re interested in.
Registration is quick and painless. Invest five minutes in your love life by disclosing where you’re from, your age, height, and gender orientation. Next you’ll need to enter information about your lifestyle, like if you have children, if you smoke or drink. You’ll then need to detail the same characteristics, but this time for your ideal partner. Upload a photo and that’s it! Now you have access to the site and you can freely build a profile, browse the member database, send a kiss to flirt with another member, and more.
Your homepage at RSVP is pretty basic. You’ll have access to a navigation bar which will help you jump between messages, matches, searches, and so on. The center of your homepage will display a big square made up of individual member profiles that you might be interested in, while your profile is accessible to the left. Scroll down to find links to the Date Hub.
Building your profile is easy. RSVP.com provides you with guidelines and tips on how to choose the best photos to represent you on your profile. When other members view your profile, they will see all your basic stats along with extra info about your hobbies and interests, which you can fill out later. You can keep your profile simple or really lay it all on the table with your astrological sign, career, drinking habits, and more.
Send a kiss
This feature is free! You can send a virtual kiss along with a flirty stock message to let the other person know you’re interested in them. This is usually the time when someone decides to spend a stamp in order to contact you.
Access your mailbox in the navigation bar to view your messages and review communication with other members. You can jump through folders where your interactions with other members are organized by who you like, who liked you, mutual likes, and RSVP messages. You need stamps to message members, but once someone with a stamp contacts you, you can write back to them for free.
Discover & matches
There are two features on RSVP.com, which match or suggest partners they think you might be compatible with. The difference between the two is that the match feature uses a matching algorithm based on personal measurements such as lifestyle preferences, whereas the discover feature uses your location to introduce you to singles in your area. Both portals can be accessed via the navigation bar.
Your member searches can be as basic or as detailed as you’d like them to be. Search for any member in your area or narrow your search down using filters such as religion and political views. Hit the ‘Search’ button and you’ll be taken to a page displaying a long list of members who meet your criteria, each of which have convenient ‘kiss’ and ‘message’ buttons below their photo. For easy searching the next time around, you have the option to save your searches! On the search results page, RSVP also suggests some ideal matches that are worth checking out.
This area serves as your dating guide, adviser, and story space. There are plenty of dating-related articles and blogs to read here designed to enhance your online dating experience.
You can browse through the most popular members on the site by clicking on “Top 100” in your navigation bar. Members are raked in the top 100 based on their frequency of sending and receiving messages.
Head on over to Google Play or the App Store to download the RSVP app on your mobile. This mobile site includes every feature that you’d find on the desktop site, plus a fun game where you can swipe through members’ profiles with a ‘like’ or ‘dislike’ option. If it’s a match, maybe one of you will pull the trigger and spend a stamp!
