I tried this site with a basic (free) membership for a couple of days and I have just deleted my account. To be fair, deleting the account can be done exactly as described by the site owner elsewhere in this thread.
I did receive a couple of seemingly genuine messages from women with a picture and a profile but did not respond to them for the reasons I am explaining here.
As highlighted in other posts, there are far too many obvious fake accounts and inconsistencies, such as members sending you a message without having viewed your profile or not having been online for a week! Not to mention "winks" from members (usually from twenty-something women) without a picture and a profile.
To me, these flaws point either to a scam or to a site which is vulnerable to hackers and has very poor security. Therefore I cannot trust them with my bank/credit card details which are required to contact the people you are interested in (or those who are interested in you).
If there are genuine members amongst the few women who viewed my profile or sent me a message, they will think that my profile was fake as a result of me having deleted my account.
This in turn will fuel the theory that the site is a scam.
I suppose that their business model still generates sufficient revenue so that they do not bother to provide a higher quality service.
I’m sorry hear that you were unhappy with the site and deleted your account.
If a member sends you a message without having viewed your profile this could be for one of two reasons. Members can send messages to other members that catch their eye directly from the search results page, meaning they don’t necessarily have to have viewed your profile to send you a message. Members can also send ‘Introductions’ messages to all members who share their interests - this helps members to ‘break the ice’ and introduce themselves on the site. This could explain why you have received messages from members who haven’t viewed your profile.
As a free member with a basic profile, you can start searching for members who share your interests. Sending winks is one of the free features on our site and members can start sending winks before uploading any profile content. This could explain why you have received winks from members with no picture or profile text. I hope this helps you understand some of the features on our site.
