In the past, meeting like-minded people for the purpose of dating was actually quite a challenge. For bisexual people, it was even more difficult, particularly if those individuals lived in out of the way places and wished to keep their private life secret.
Fortunately, the advent of the dating site has helped revolutionize the way we meet people, something which thanks to these sites can now be done from the comfort of our own homes. The dating app phenomenon has been so popular that there are literally thousands of different apps to choose from these days.
For bisexuals, there has ever been more choice, as they can use mainstream apps such as Tinder, as well as sexuality specific ones for gay, lesbian and bisexual individuals. With so many sites to choose from there are obviously good and bad ones, so whichever one you choose to put your energy into, could mean the difference between meeting the kind of person you want or coming up empty handed.
For obvious reasons, most bisexuals tend to begin their search on the bisexual apps. This is simply down to the fact that the people on there are much more likely to be on the same page when it comes down to sexuality. When they tire of these sites or run out of matches, most bisexuals will switch to the mainstream sites that have more members. Just because they are not bi-specific, there is no reason not to explore some of these other great dating apps to help give your options a boost.
A great site to consider is Getiton. This site caters for a whole range of sexualities and preferences, has roughly 30 million members, is easy to register to use, and offers the opportunity to meet lots of new people. The site is definitely bi-friendly and offers a range of search options to ensure that you will only meet the like-minded people that you are most suitable for.
Membership Costs and Features
Getiton offers several different membership options for you to choose from.
The challenge all dating sites face is how to get people to use their site and pay for the pleasure, so that they can make money. The ratio of paying to non-paying members is roughly 1:50 on sites such as Tinder. Many sites offer free memberships that are heavily restricted in their access, in order to get their members to upgrade.
Thankfully, Getiton’s free membership still allows its members a good level of access to the main functions of the site. It allows people to search for matches on the basis of a wide variety of criteria that includes age, sex, sexuality, ethnicity, distance and several other preferences. Free membership also allows you to view most of the profiles that you find. A little frustrating, however, is the fact that you can only contact up to ten matches per day, though you can keep a ‘hotlist’ of your 200 favorite members. The normal chat and group chat features are unrestricted, which is a huge bonus.
For those people who are serious about meeting people, there is the unrestricted paid membership option. With this membership you will get a huge boost in benefits that include full access to member’s profiles, being able to contact all the people you match with without restriction, an expanded 1000 member ‘hot’ list, and access to member’s videos, as well as the live chat function. These benefits will certainly boost your chance enormously of finding the people you really want to meet.
Free membership available with limited access.
1-month membership $29.95
3-month membership $59.85
12 month + 6 months free plan $179.40

When placed side by side with other dating sites, Getiton performs really respectably, so far as bisexual dating is concerned. Despite not being exclusively designed for bisexuals, it offers good filters to get you to those people who are either bisexual or are happy to meet bisexual people.
The site has a really high number of members in The United States and Europe, the largest being in the UK, which has just over 1 million active users. The site is very user-friendly, though sadly doesn’t have an app for smartphones which is definitely its biggest drawback. We liked that even the free membership gave lots of access but would definitely recommend the paid membership for those people who are serious about trying to get their numbers up.
So far as results go, compared to other sites the number of matches is really good. You certainly won’t get as many matches compared to the bi-specific sites, but the numbers are still pretty decent. Provided you do the ABC’s of making sure you get your profile right, a good picture, and make sure to use a good opening line, this site will definitely get you results.
The final plus of this site is that it has a relatively balanced proportion of men to women, so the competition is roughly the same. Anyone who has ever used an app that is overloaded with guys, for example, will be able to tell you how frustrating it can be when you aren’t getting the matches. Getiton is definitely a bi-friendly site where, provided you put the work in, you will get a high number of really suitable matches who will be certainly worth meeting.
