Target group and chances of success

According to their own statement, the chances of success are 51 percent. DatingKey.en specializes in the placement of singles aged 35 and over, but younger members are also well represented here. The ratio of women to men is relatively balanced at 53 to 47 percent. In contrast to many other dating sites, there is even a slight surplus of women in the membership structure.

There is no personality test as is the case, for example, with partner exchanges. As is typical for dating sites, the members look for the right partner themselves.

Filter functions

There is no section “Partner Suggestions” on DatingKey.en. However, you get some if you look for other singles under the menu item “Search”. Here, the age of the candidates, the desired postcode and the distance to their place of residence can be limited manually. It is also possible to only display profiles with photos or to search for a specific keyword and a pseudonym. This is followed by suitable partner suggestions.

Profiles & Photos

The photos of other members can be viewed with a free basic profile. The profiles of other users are also displayed in full.

Right next to the profile picture is a personal description of the candidate. Below you will find the items age, relationship status, place of residence, size, appearance and marital status. At the end of the profile, a self-assessment “About me” is displayed as well as the “Question of the week”, if the candidate has answered it.

The get-to-know

The first contact can take place via a "sympathy click" or "3 questions" that the other person can answer. In order to send a personal message to the users, however, one must have a premium account.

Customer service

The customer service is clearly structured. There is a large and extensive "Help" area for questions or uncertainties. All questions are answered in detail in the FAQ. If the answer wasn't helpful enough, users can send an email to customer service. During our test, questions were answered quickly and satisfactorily.

Online guide

In the large "Cafeteria" advice area, DatingKey.en offers its members tips and tricks on a wide variety of topics and areas. There are the following categories:

  • Tips (profile creation, single life and getting to know each other)
  • Columns (opinions on current topics)
  • Horoscopes (tips for different zodiac signs)
  • Success Stories (Couples and Their Stories)
  • This is how it works (information and tips about the platform)

Lots of singles events and trips

The single exchange offers an immense selection of special single events across Germany. Sports activities and hikes can be found under the "Active & Fit" category. The "Date & Dance" category offers club nights and dance courses. Under "Eat & Drink" you will find cooking courses, so-called "Jumping Dinner", bar crawls or brunch Sundays. The "Leisure & Experiences" category lists billiards tournaments, bowling evenings and casino events. A wide variety of offers can be found under "Lifestyle".

For single trips, the single exchange even offers its own section, which is divided into the sub-categories "Ski & Mountains", "Sun & Sea", "Culture & Enjoyment", "Active & Fit", "Wind & Water", "City & Experience "as well as" long-distance and round trip ".


The single exchange has existed for 20 years and is considered serious. The high number of registered members increases the chance of finding the right partner immensely. If you are looking for suitable singles, you can find what you are looking for using the filter functions and will be served suitable partner suggestions directly.

DatingKey.en members get their money's worth thanks to the immensely large selection of singles events and trips. The large advice area scores with many articles on the subject of flirting, dating and single life.

The premium offers can be booked with relatively short terms such as 3 or 6 months.

One of the disadvantages is that the free membership has limited features. Like many other dating sites, DatingKey.en does not take a personality test. A TUV SUD America certificate and an app are missing so far.
