Delightful.com is a new online dating site that is being represented by popular radio host and television personality Steve Harvey, which claims that this is the site to use for people who want to “Find love and keep it.”
How Does It Work?
According to their About Us page, Delightful.com provides their members with a “one of a kind profile system” the allows members to set up photo albums, share their interests and hobbies, and much more, with the goal of being better able to easily find people with whom you have things in common.
To begin, you will be asked the most basic information, including your gender and the gender of the partner you will be searching for, your residential zip code, and your country of residence, and then you will begin building your profile.
Throughout the profile building process and even the process of selecting your potential matches, the website offers guidance as provided by Steve Harvey, including suggestions of the types of photos you should provide, the kind of information potential partners may want about you, and even suggested templates you can use when messaging potential partners in case you have difficulty with thinking of things to say.
Like most other websites, there are a variety of ways to interact with other members, such as sending “flirts,” messaging, live chatting, posting to their profile, and liking the pictures they have provided.
Like most other websites, Delightful.com does not publish a standard pricing guide to their services, because prices change based on promotions, length of subscription, the type of services you wish to receive, and more.
Generally speaking, you should be able to create a profile for free, but then will have to upgrade to a paid membership when you wish to begin communicating with other members, whether you initiate the communication or you wish to respond to a communication.
At this time, the website says that unfortunately they do not offer refunds of any kind, whether partial or full, even in circumstances of cancellations. If you choose to cancel your subscription, you’ll still have access to your services until the end of your billing date, and then you will not be charged again. It is important to note, however, that all cancellations must be put in writing before the beginning of the next billing cycle.
Customer Service Contact Info
Customers who wish to contact their Customer Service team with any questions, concerns, or complaints can do so by submitting them directly to their website through their Contact Us link, which is accessible through your profile.
Delightful.com has gotten a lot of attention from online publications because of its association with Steve Harvey, resulting in some humorous and detailed reviews from websites like Jezebel and BDCWire.com.
While this website suffers from a lot of the same critiques as other online dating sites concerning billing and Refund Policies, there are some criticisms unique to it as well, one of which was specifically laid out in the Jezebel review, which has to do with the helpful templates Delightful.com provides.
It may certainly be true that people might find chatting online with their potential matches awkward, but giving people templates to rely on is not only a bit of a cheat – since you are supposed to getting to know someone to see if you would like to meet them in person – but it also can result in having similar, uninteresting interactions with other members, which is an obvious hindrance to the dating process.
At the end of the day, though, it appears that Delightful.com is an online dating site that offers much the same as any other dating site.
Competitors and Alternatives?
There are many, many other dating websites – almost too many websites to count. Some are specific to race, ethnicity, or religion, like BlackPeopleMeet.com, ChristianMingle.com, CatholicMatch, and others are specific to lifestyle, like SingleParentMeet.com, or age, like OurTime.com. There are so many different online dating sites, that people may benefit from the article, How to Find the Right Online Dating Site.

1 ‘Delightful.com’ Review
From day one, I was very disappointed. Before Delightful.com., Steve Harvey was one of my favorite people. After Delightful.com, my thoughts of his business practices are in question. I signed up for the one month and ended up with the six month and it subtracted $100.00 plus, before I even completed my membership. When signing up for membership, there was no way off of the page but to choose the option Upgrade. Because I had been viewing for free I assumed Upgrade meant,....from viewing to communicating. NOT. To say absolutely no refunds for any reason and the difficulty in making contact with anyone, no number to call or customer service.....I was very disappointed.
I did send an immediate communication, but I have not received any response and now I am not allowed to view the site until I give my card information. Not happening, not again.
Now, I can't get into my account without verifying my information, including my debit card. THIS IS A CROCK AND I ASSUME THE NEGATIVE THIS TIME. This will only be a way to add on to the card. No explanation for the need to confirm my information nor was there anything stated about this prior to membership. Very, Very disappointed.
