What is Alt?
This is a Furry dating site that aims to help those seeking adult relationships to fulfil sexual fantasies and find future partners and like-minded singles. Unlike many furry dating sites, Alt Australia offers adult movies and live action cams – where you can join in, or simply just watch others – as well as the traditional methods of internet dating such as chatrooms and instant messaging. The site is mostly popular in the USA; however there are members from all over the world on the site, and most active members are under the age of 35.

Alt.com’s membership base is mostly built up of singles who are curious about BDSM and other sexual fantasies and fetishes, such as role-play or threesomes, as we discovered in our review. Like with most sites, there are more men than women on the dating site – but the split on the site is particularly large, with only 20% of members identifying as female. The majority of the sites’ users are from or living in the USA, although the site is available worldwide. The site has almost half a million members in the USA with 80,000 active weekly members – however there are lots of fake and bot profiles on the site, so that number might not be accurate.
Profiles on Alt.com are very detailed, however in order to see someone’s profile you will need to pay for a premium account. Within the profile, you can find details of member purity tests – however completing a profile on the site isn’t necessary to start dating so a lot of profiles are left blank. Your profile can be updated at any time whilst you use the site, however you will need to pay if you wish you change your username. You can find other members’ contact details easily on the platform as many members choose to list their MSN, AIM or social media accounts for other members. Profiles also detail what type of sex, kinks or fantasies members are into – meaning it’s easy to match with the right people.
Search Features on Alt.com
Like most sites, this platform allows you to use a search feature in order to match with other members on the site – and the filters on the search filter are extensive. Members on the site can use the filters to help search for singles who share the same interests or fantasies and desires. You can search based on sexuality, gender, location, relationship type and also the fantasies you hope to fulfil through the site – for example: role play, BDSM, watersports, sub/dom. Completing your profile and each section will also make it easier for other singles to be able to find you on the site – making your chances of a match with the right person much greater.
There are plenty of ways to make contact on the site however you will need a premium account in order to do so. The only type of contact you can make for free on the site is with the models in the live chat – which is unlikely to create a real match. Once you’re a premium member your ways to make contact are much more varied, and you have a lot more options including adding other members to a hot list, search for members through the advanced search system, use the chat rooms and live video in order to start conversations or go ahead and send a private message to the singles you like the look of.
How Much Does Alt Cost?
There are a number of different membership options you can take advantage of when you sign up for a premium membership, with the cost per month decreasing based on how long you sign up for. The site also offers two types of premium memberships, silver and gold, with gold members having unlimited options and silver members having slightly more restrictions.[wptb id="1118" not found ]

Is There an Alt App?
Alt.com primarily is a dating website; however iPhone users can still access an app to help making dating on the go a lot easier. The app is easy to use, offers a simple interface and is completely free to download. If you don’t have an Apple device, alt.com also offers a mobile version of their site that is also free and easy to use and accessible on either tablets or mobile devices.
There are hundreds, if not thousands of dating sites to choose from in Australia – and the site isn’t the best choice for most people. Whilst the site has a lot of features to use, the prices are high and there are a huge number of fake and bot accounts on the site that make finding a real match difficult, and the with the true members, the majority are in the USA, making it difficult for singles in Australia to find matches that they can meet in person – especially with the borders currently closed. The site is a good alternative for those looking for online only connections, or to watch live shows or adult videos – however, it’s very difficult to find a physical match who you could meet in person.

Everyone’s personal experience on dating sites will vary, but between the fake and bot accounts, as well as the number of non-Australian members, it’s often better to go with another choice.
