A great site with excellent functionality. While it may be on the expensive side, it more than makes up for it in the amount of attractive single women. Worth signing up, depending on where you live, just to see who you can get chatting with.

Some of the profiles are dubious and could be fakes.
Are you the kind of singleton who likes to travel the world, or is often away on business? Dream Singles International is a service aimed at the global traveler. Its primary goal is to match international globe trotters up with partners from across the world.
With a host of beautiful women on its site, could it help you finally find love on the road? Read on as I test the website and let you know how likely a match is on Dream Singles.
How Fast Can You Sign Up?
Dream singles starts off with a slick, modern-looking homepage. In fact, this is one the of the best-looking user interfaces I have seen on this type of site. It is clean and easy to navigate. Your free trial starts by choosing your gender and stating what you are looking for.
Once your username and email are input, you are accepted. You can even simplify the process by signing in using a Google account.
When signed in, you have a chance to add your physical attributes and characteristics. The whole process is fast, slick, and in under two minutes, you will be browsing their many profiles.
Girls, Girls, Girls!
I started by looking locally, which happens to be the UK at the moment. The first search in my local area produced one result which was a tad disappointing. However, the girl did look beautiful. This would be a trend inherent in the site and one of its best features.
I decided to try another area and did a search of the UK. In the whole of the UK, only six females appeared which again, was a little disheartening. However, they did all seem attractive and had put a lot of time into their profiles and pictures, so it did look as if they were searching for a match.
Luckily, a search in the US revealed that there are plenty of female profiles for you to message and view. A search for women here resulted in an infinite scrolling page that I struggled to reach the bottom of. If you are in the states, then this is the site for you.
What Kind of People Are on Dream Singles?
A quick search of females in the US showed that many of them were in their twenties. A few were in the thirty-something brackets, with the odd forty-plus profile. Once again, all profiles had very beautiful girls who had taken time to build a profile and pictures.
When searching for men, Dream Singles becomes a little tougher. I was not able to switch from a man searching for a man once I had put my preliminary information in. With no choice for bisexual singles or couples, it was a very heterosexual website.
Searching for Love on Dream Singles
The search menu itself gives you two options for each profile. These are quick message, chat now, or free flirt buttons. Quick messages are short one-line messages, and chat now opens a messenger style box.
Free flirt brings up a choice of four greeting card-style pictures for you to send. “Are you as beautiful on the outside as you are on the inside?” was one option, as was “I am falling in love with you”. I was not sure what purpose they would serve, but the right partner might find them sweet.
The girls on the site are very responsive. In fact, you can expect a reply to almost every message you send. Keep in mind that for a lot of the time, you need to have a higher-level membership to reply to any messages you receive.
The Price of Love on Dream Singles
As a free user, you, unfortunately, get very little. Unless you give your credit card and billing details, you can only browse at the profiles. The chat feature is also blocked.
After the free trial, you can choose to go onto one of the paid membership plans. The lowest price is the reasonable silver membership at $9.99 per month. With this, you can open and read emails and send 10 introductions. You also get 50% off the live chat features and intro videos.
Gold membership is $29.99 per month. It also gives you a little extra, as you can send more introductions and you are now allowed 10 follow-up emails per month. Chat features remain at 50% off.
Platinum racks in at $49.99 per month. Introductions go to 50 per month and you are allowed 30 follow-up emails. This gives you a huge boost to your communication levels.
Finally, the highest tier, diamond, costs $99.99 per month. Introductions go up to 100 and you can have 50 follow-up emails. Unfortunately, it still does not include live chat options.
Credits are how you use Dream Singles chat, with 40 credits coming in at $30 and the largest package being 900 credits for $379 dollars. If you are a paid member, live chat will cost you one credit per minute and two credits per minute if you are on the free plan.
If you choose to have the video on, then this cost doubles. It costs two credits per minute for a member and four credits per minute for a non-member. What happens on live camera remains to be seen.
Credits are where Dream Singles really starts to get useful. A membership and credits start to become expensive. This means buying credits alone could be better value than a membership, depending upon your aim.
How Responsive Are People on Dream Singles?
As soon as my profile was created, four messages popped up in my inbox. All of them were from very good looking, interesting girls.
As I browsed the site, I started to get a few more messages. So far it was a great response and suggests that Dream Singles has some sort of algorithm for placing new members in front of the other profiles on the site. It was the best response I have had from a dating site so far.
Using the Dream Singles App
Dream Singles does have an app on Google Play. Its interface is a hybrid of Facebook messenger and Tinder. This makes it easy to use and even easier to get to grips with.
However, this is not free. It still retains the free 3-day trial but has the same billing methods as the website. The store only has three reviews which all suggest the app has recently been improved a lot, so the functionality should be good.
Payments and Discretion
Payment options are the standard credit cards, including Visa, Mastercard, American Express, and Discover cards. Be aware that in your billing it will show up as Dream Singles.com. This cannot be changed, meaning it is dangerous for people who are seeking discretion.
Apart from this, the site seems to be discreet. Of course, uploading a picture is down to you. I had a great response rate before I even uploaded a picture, so you may not even need to do this.
My Overall Opinion of Dream Singles
The profile quality is high on Dream Singles. All profiles have lots of in-depth information about the singles and are filled with high-quality pictures and images.
The usability of the app seems to be good. It works fine and does everything you would want from a modern dating app. Recent updates suggest that the company is putting money into the app and maintaining it.
The chances of hooking up or finding a life partner are slim if you do not live in the U.S. However, as it is an international site for globetrotters, it will benefit you to fill in your profile as U.S. regardless of where you are. Most of the girls are in Eastern Europe anyway, and it may help them find you they are searching.
Value for money all comes down to what you want from the site. High membership fees are paid for the biggest package, and even then, you may need credits. This means if you want to browse and message people, then you should opt for one of the mid-range packages. If you want to chat right away, then buy credits.
Final Thoughts on Dream Singles
Dream Singles itself is very user-friendly. It is easy to navigate, search, and it looks clean and sharp. The app follows the same principle and does exactly what you would expect.
Profiles are of very high quality. The pictures and information are all filled in well, making it easy to find a perfect match. You can also expect a great level of response.
Of course, this does come at a cost. It would be good to see some hybrid, mid-priced packages that allow a chat function and messaging. Decide between what suits you, a membership or credits, and there is a high chance that you will find a Dream Single just for you!
