1. be2 review: summary
Online dating has become a real trend in Australia and all over the world. Our busy lifestyle often leaves little time for social activities and many choose to use an online dating service to find the right partner. be2 users are serious professionals who know what they want and expect a high quality service. Be2 Australia takes into account the personality of every single one of its users and introduces them to potential partners that are very likely to meet their expectations. The service is reliable and professional.
be2 is one of the best known serious matchmaking sites in Australia. We tested the site in order to find out how it really works and we compared it with other similar online services. conclusion: be2 is one of our preferred matchmaking services in Australia.
Our test revealed that be2 is an excellent dating service. The first thing to do is to create a personal profile. Once the profile is completed, users start receiving a list of partner recommendations. Users are encouraged to stay active and get in touch with their potential partners. The site has an “ice breaker” feature designed to help users get in touch easily. Be2 users are fun and interesting professionals. Our practical test showed great results.
be2 is sharply designed and has steady features but the user experience could perhaps be enhanced by the addition of some new innovative features. The highly sophisticated matching system generates relevant partner recommendations for each user, putting be2 a few steps ahead of other sites. Profiles are very detailed and users can communicate easily with each other through the internal messaging system. Very good!
be2 combines an attractive interface with very dynamic features. Users are presented with an array of useful functions and they can change their search criteria at any time. However, it is difficult to find the relevant information regarding membership termination or customer service contact. Still good.
be2 most likely offers the best value for money on the Australian matchmaking market. The results of our contact test were very positive. We believe be2 is definitely worth trying. Users have the opportunity to introduce themselves properly and create a real contact with other members. Good value for money!
2. be2 practical test
The purpose of this review is to give you a fair assessment of be2 Australia. We want users to be able to make an informed decision before they subscribe to a membership. We conducted a test and present you with the results.
First we created 2 profiles on the site: One female and one male. We explored the free features available to non premium users and we had fun answering the questions of the personality test. Then we purchased a premium membership in order to test all the features available to paying users. The contact test was quite successful.
When searching for "be2 experiences" on Google we came across both negative and positive user reviews. We took all results into account for the purpose of our review.
2.1 be2 - First Impression
We were quite pleased with be2 right from the beginning. The site is elegantly designed and has a contemporary feel. It’s also very easy to navigate through the personal profile. Be2 appeals to fun people and busy professionals who know what they want. The classy design of the site is in line with this level of refinement.

We did not manage to find out how much be2 costs in Australia before we registered a profile on the site. The cost of be2 is hidden, as it is the case for most other dating sites. There is no reference to cost whatsoever in the General Terms and Conditions either. This is standard practice in the industry but we find this is the first drawback for be2.

2.2 be2 Contact Test
In order to analyse the site, we conducted a contact test which revealed that it is very easy to get in touch with other users on be2. The more active users are, the more likely they are to make a meaningful encounter. Be2 users are active and enthusiastic, which makes it a very dynamic meeting platform. Here are the results of our test:

• standard greetings: 0
• personal messages: 22
>> active contact requests: 50
• standard greetings: 0
• positive replies received: 0
• personal messages: 50
• positive replies received: 30
Success rate: 52 points out of 100
22 contact requests plus 30 positive responses to contact attempts.
How does the contact test work?
- The test takes place over a period of one month (30 days from the creation of the premium membership profile)
- During this period, the number of successful contacts is counted.
- 50 contact attempts (messages/greetings) will be made and up to 50 will be counted if received.
- Incoming (passive) contact attempts are automatically counted as a successful contact.
- Outgoing (active) contact attempts only count as a successful contact if a positive response (a response that encourages you to continue the conversation) follows.
- A maximum of 50 points can be awarded for successful incoming contacts, and 50 for successful outgoing contacts.
- The result is denoted as x out of 100 points. For example: 60 successful contacts out of 100 attempts results in a score of 60/100.
3. be2 functions and be2 profiles
3.1 How does be2 work?
Once you’ve registered on the site, you have to fill in a personality test which is aimed at finding out about your opinions, interests, personality traits and preferences in a potential partner. The test takes roughly 15 minutes to complete. be2 is a serious site that ensures singles are matched only if they are compatible. The results of the test will determine what type of person would be the ideal partner.
After completing the personality test users are asked to create a personal welcome message which is visible to other users. This gives an opportunity to greet others.

There are a few more fun questions to answer after the profile has been completed. be2 is clearly different from other sites. It’s easy to navigate through the profile pages and click from one section to another. be2 keeps it simple. The steps to complete the profile are easy to follow and answers can be given by a simple click. Very good!

Once the questionnaire has been completed, users receive a list of potential partners on their personal homepage. Our list of potential partners was quite long. Users are matched based on their compatibility, which is determined by the personality test and the be2 index. The be2 index is a sophisticated computer algorithm that indicates how compatible two people are.
You can organise your list of partners as you wish, save your favourite profiles in a special folder and change your search criteria at any time.

Users can contact potential partners as soon as they receive their list of matches. Better results are achieved when members remain active and answer their messages. Messaging is the only way to get in touch with other users at be2. The messaging system is basic but reliable. Users can also consult the history of all messages exchanged with the one person. be2 provides an adequate means of communication to its users which is in keeping with the site’s sober design.
3.2 Quality of the Profiles on be2
There are very few fake profiles on be2. Registrations seemed to be monitored in order to avoid the presence of dishonest people on the site. be2 users can expect to have a genuine experience. Unfortunately, there is no way to verify your own profile (other dating sites provide voice, video or ID profile verification). We recommend that be2 adds a verification feature in the future.
Some profiles didn’t include a photo. The photo is the most important element of the personal profile and users are encouraged to add one to their page. It’s easily understandable; users are more likely to get in touch with someone if they know what they look like.
- Complete your profile. The more details you give about yourself, the more chances you have of getting in touch with other users. People want to get to know you – And you want to get to know them. Your personal facts are your visiting card. Sharing about yourself is the only way you can really start an exchange.
- Upload your nicest photos. Don’t be shy! Choose a photo of you that you like and be proud of it. Other users want to see what you look like – And it’s only fair. Note you will only be able to see other users’ photos if you upload one yourself.
4. Customer friendliness
You will find answers to most of your questions in the detailed FAQs. The FAQs section can be found at the bottom of the profile page. One recommendation: we believe a few articles on love, partners and relationships would be a great addition to this section.
4.1 Customer Service and Contact Options at be2
It is quite difficult to get in touch with be2’s customer service. We could not find any contact details on our profile. The contact information for customer service is available at the bottom of the page of the main contact section where a link to an email is provided. There is contact information in the General Terms and Conditions but it’s not immediately obvious where to find it. There is no phone number available.
Our email inquiry to customer service received a relatively quick reply but we still think be2 could improve customer service contact details. It was difficult to find information about customer service.

5. be2 Value-for-money ratio
You will have to subscribe to a premium membership if you want to get the full be2 experience. Non premium members can only write one message to each of their potential partners. Registration is free but only gives you an overview of the service. This is the case for most dating sites in Australia. We still think the service is of very high quality. However, prices should reflect the services provided.
