Mind you Date Hookup is free, so it doesn't take much to send off a quick email and learn more.
I first found Date Hookup in 2008 via HItwise, a statistical aggregator that looks at the top websites in a variety of categories and niches.
Some other notes of interest: the only options for search are heterosexual, gay or lesbian (zero options for bisexual, pansexual, or transgendered folks), the "Let's Meet" column is little more than clicking on a Yes, No or Maybe to meeting someone, in the Advanced Tab, you have have your specialized search queries emailed directly to you periodically.
There are no fees to join or maintain a membership at Date Hookup, however (supposedly) you can purchase a VIP Pass to get additional, non-essential features such as access who is into you, a Hot List, and zero ads." Date Hookup tries to keep their website simple, straightforward and without too many bells and whistles to confuse users.
