When you first hear the name, or try to do a search for the site, the first thing that you see is pages and pages about the movie and play “LoveStruck.”
While it may seem like an ideal choice for a name for a dating site, it also makes you wonder if this is a real site, or one trying to ride the coattails of a popular search term. The truth is surprising. LoveStruck is a popular site that is holding steady and has most of their users coming from Hong Kong. Here is what we found when we took a closer look.
LoveStruck scores 109,910 in dating websites globally, which is a solid rise in ranking of 13,172 places and is ranked 1,127 in Hong Kong for all websites on Alexa.com. It has one of the lowest bounce rates and the highest per visit page view rates (16 per visit) of any site. There has also been a significant rise in the habits of viewers with more people showing up to spend more time viewing pages than ever before. Since 2013, it is showing a very active and steady use pattern that has normal ups and downs but a baseline that shows the site is live. This means real people are showing up and staying to use their dating system.
There are few complaints about scams or problems from users of this site. Some of the bonuses of this site include –
- It’s 100% free to sign up
- The paid memberships are expensive, but no one seems to have a problem with the rates

This site is designed like to be simple to use. You sign up, you create your profile (or not) and you search for people in your area. The site is equally popular with men and women in their late 20s and 30s. But most of the users come from the Hong Kong area.
LoveStruck keeps its features focused squarely on its task, providing a way for people to connect and hook up in real life. The emphasis here is on casual dating. The search options are solid – age, zip code, sex and a few other tidbits – but not as intense as other dating sites. You can upload multiple pictures, message, chat email and instant message members. The search system is intuitive. There are no extended features or options available for membership nor do you need to buy extra tokens to do anything on the site.

LoveStruck is a good dating site for both men and women. It is easy to use and the lack of consumer complaints about the site, or its members, suggests that it is safer than most. It is expensive, but given the demographic that seems to have responded to it, that isn’t an issue. If you follow good rules of common sense, you are more likely to meet real people in your area that interest you. LoveStruck doesn’t pretend to be anything other than what it is. It is not a social media site or a place to carry on lasting conversations, it is not a place where you go to network or keep a blog – it is where you can go if you are looking for a free dating site where you have a real chance of meeting someone you like. There isn’t much fancy or new about LoveStruck, except perhaps the part about people liking it.
