TangoWire Reviews

Average: • 1.8 / 5 (by 7 Users)   View Add

TangoWire was launched in 2001 just when the internet dating craze took off. This dating service has more than 70 dating communities designed to target general and specific dating niches, such as BBW, seniors and the military. These communities help generate a sense of togetherness which makes it easier to break the ice when communicating with someone you like for the first time. You are not tied directly to the specific dating community when you join TangoWire—at any time you can search other communities or the entire TangoWire dating service.

When you join TangoWire you will find a complete dating site available at your fingertips. It is easy to search for members and once you find a match there are a number of ways you can communicate with them. One of the ways is virtual dating, which allows members to pick avatars and set up a fun, interactive environment to go out on a date in. Free members are also not restricted to just creating a profile and searching. They can also reply to emails and accept initiations for chat and virtual dating. This means premium members can contact all members knowing they can reply back without buying a membership.

TangoWire is a full-feature dating site with a strict policy on spammers. If you are interested in trying online dating, log into TangoWire to see if they have members living in your area.
