ArabianDate emphasizes on the features that would encourage you to communicate with the users on the site, be it through a live chat or video chat, albeit payable.

Let’s Mingle

If you’re spoilt for choice because there are simply too many people you wish to engage with on the site, you can go with the ‘Let’s Mingle’ option, where you simply need to type in a message and indicate the gender and age range you’re looking for, between 18 and 75, and the platform will share it with the users who are online, fit your profile and ready to mingle with you. However, to access this feature, it will require 5 credits for each mingle. 

Today I Am

It’s interesting that ArabianDate provides an option to indicate how you feel for the day and this option is displayed on your profile so that others will know what you’re looking for, at least for the day. Truth is, people come on online dating sites for different reasons, and this reason may change according to different stages in life or simply, how you feel for the day. This indication helps you to attract users who may be feeling the same way as you, even if it’s just for the day, as it may be a start to a meaningful future.

Sending Gifts

As we were browsing through profiles on the site, we discovered an option that allows you to send gifts to the profile you’re interested in. Now, we are familiar with virtual gifts as a way to get the attention of someone you are interested in, but the ability to send an actual gift through the platform is not commonly seen. Swiping through the options for the actual gifts, we were pretty blown away by the variety available, ranging from flowers, baskets, and gadgets, to other special gifts, such as a Swarovski necklace or a Netflix gift card. Pretty enticing for the ladies, we’d say.
