You have to pay for membership to get access to the simple features such as viewing as many profiles as you like in a day. They have two levels of paid membership, basic and Gold. However, you cannot find anywhere on the site what the benefit of going Gold is. Sent a query to their helpdesk after a number of weeks requesting answers to a list of questions. Nothing was answered within even a week so I cancelled. A few no-noes that alert suspicions:
1) So many women parading nude on their profiles in close proximity? How can any website achieve such a density of horny women living within 5 - 10 miles of me?
2) SMS text feature - another paid for service - the texts do not get sent immediately, the replies arrive like at or near the same time on the following day.
3) Website messages from other members. They purport to have been sent at such and such a time, in which case why did I not receive the message in my inbox when I was actively on the site at the time?
4) Try searching for profiles outside your initial area - absolutely no way to do this apart from using the site's very limited random search. Even better, try changing your location which is something I did because I had moved. You still don't get profiles from the new locality, all the profiles showing up on your home page are from the original locality.
Steer clear of this website and its sister site ulust.com. Another thing is can you find any internet reviews of these websites that are from the female perspective? This would be most telling
Fun if you're bored out of your brain. At least someone, or more likely a computer, is doing some furious work behind the scenes to give the illusion that this is a real dating website. Also, whatever women are there working on SMS and sending fake messages are at least getting paid, or so I would hope. I'd like to find the adverts that are placed to find these workers cos I'd like some of that action!
Pay through the nose for a shoddy basic service, little onsite help, and laughable profiles.
