I have been on this website for about a month. The only "amazingflings" you will get is flinging your money out the window in more ways than one. Where shall I begin...?
Be careful about the pictures and profile description you post because they will most likely get hijacked and use to dupe other members. Once I posted my profile I was over run with responses and of course I thought that was cool. I'm 65 and women from 19 to 70 were responding. You can post your profile for free, but to respond to other members requires you to purchase "credits". So I purchased a few just to try it out and everything was fine, at least for a few days...!
The credits spend quickly because the women are advertising they want to meet-up or hook-up, but invariably they want to "chat" until they get to know you. Cha-ching, more credits used. I thought it was strange that they were on an adult website and in many cases, posted nude pictures of themselves and responding to my profile which clearly stated I was looking for a NSA relationship, then suddenly they wanted to "get to know me". It gets weirder.
I started to notice similarities in the responses. Several women would not use my name, but called me "babe". There were a lot of misspellings, grammatical errors and the big giveaway were terms like "bloke, bum and KG" instead of weight in pounds. Many of the responses did not reflect age appropriate comments. One 59 year-old responded like a teenage Russian and did not have the command of normal English language.
Just to be safe, I kept a close eye on my credit card statement and sure enough over $150.00 was charged to my account even though I was careful not to check the "Remember My Account" button. I had to file a dispute claim with the credit card company, plus I had to cancel the card and wait a week for a replacement.
I also started to track my credits closely and found once I logged off and returned another day, I had less credits available than the previous day. Interesting. I thought, well I'll contact them, right? Wrong. There is no member support or way to contact them.
They also have a "Speed Dial" option so you can save members and not have to go searching for them every time you want to respond to them. I had one profile show up in my speed dial that I was unable to delete, she kept coming back, and I hadn't even selected her for this option. There's more.
I thought I was pretty smart giving out my email address and phone number to a couple of members I was really interested in and they did email me, but sounding like the "Russian teenager". They also insisted on doing a "free" video chat" just so they "could get to know me better." By then I was too gun shy- no telling what they would have done with my telephone account! It was confirmed when I refused, then I never heard from them again after all that talking. It just wasn't real.
The last thing I can tell you is about your profile. When you login to it, it takes you immediately to the edit page so you can't even see your own profile! Many of the women who responded to me were from New York, California and Texas, you know, just a stone's throw from Georgia! It gets better. The next time I heard from them, their profile suddenly indicated they were now magically from Georgia, how convenient, just not for me. It was like some dating shell game and the bottom line, I never talked to or met in person one woman from the website.
I only searched the profiles one time and set the filters for women my age in my immediate area... It displayed 45,000 profiles! I don't think that many people live in the town where I live! When you read the profile descriptions, they really do match the pictures, the age of the woman and so on, but when you write to them, they always immediately respond in the same short, robotic and evasive way. They do not answer any direct questions, and usually respond to you with more questions rather than letting you know anything concrete about them. I'd have a better chance meeting a woman floating on an innertube out on the ocean! This was truly my most "amazing fling"!
|Your comments / analysis||the whole point here is to suck you dry financially/emotionally by insisting on chat, that drains your purchased points very fast.|
I think that they are not in this country because they often misspell and use all sorts of improper grammar.
and if you ask for any telephone number/address, even if you spent all night, several times chatting with some woman, the answer is always no.
