Is Dating.com a legit and safe dating site?

Dating.com (Perfect-Dating.com)

With a name as clean and simple as dating.com, the hopes were high for this one. The main page immediately stands out – no cheesy images of two models pretending to be in love here. Just some heart shaped balloons, a super short registration form and some images of real members below. A nice start, even if the “Take a Chance” button does make us feel a bit like we're playing a slot machine, but maybe that'e the point – no promises here, just a chance at finding love.

Dating.com Review: Is It A Scam?

As it turns, out, the registration process isn't quite as quick as the front page made us think, but that's forgivable. After all, the best way to attract members of the opposite (or same) sex is to provide information on your dating profile. And so it is that after the initial short form we're urged to provide some more information about ourselves as the main dating site waits for us tantalizingly in the background.

dating.com

One we reach the main promised land of the main dating.com member home page, our reviewers were asked to indicate how they feel today – flirty, bored, etc – in order to better help them search for the right singles. And this unusual question isn't the only difference that dating.com has compared to typical online dating sites. In fact, everything about this love search site feels new at first, from layout to everything else.

Features Of Dating.com

In terms of features, there are a good variety of options on dating.com. They offer standard messaging (either email style or instant chat for when you're both online at the same time), video / web cam chat, a “Let's Mingle” button that allows you to send out an intro message to multiple targeted singles at once and more.

Is Dating.com For Free?

In terms of the cost to use the site, it's free to join and search for local singles as you'd probably expect if you're well versed in the dating scene like we are. Sending messages require credits, which can be purchased in bulk once you've decided you'd like to start contacting other single members. Sending ice-breakers like emoticons and stickers are free and act as a good way to let somebody you know you're interested in them on dating.com. When you take the plunge and splash the cash on some credits, you do receive a bunch of free chats and intro messages as part of the deal, which helps get you started.

It has to be said that by the end of our reviewing period we had enjoyed some chats, but were still dateless. For all of the style and freshness, dating.com – for the area we were in at least – didn't quite live up to our admittedly high expectations. It's possible that a few more weeks of messaging (or moving to a major city) would be far more fruitful and could bring a serious chance of true love, but it's something that will greatly depend on the member number for the area you are based.

Our Conlcusion: Is Dating.com Worth Joining?

All in all, this site has shown plenty of promise. We feel that dating.com is a few tweaks away from being a major player but urge our readers not to be won over by the modern interface. Dating sites; old, new, beautiful, outdated, stylish, ugly – they should all be judged on one thing. Interaction. And this will depend on member numbers. We'd recommend you check it out, run some searches and decide if it's the site for you to find your soulmate, or just another pretty ballon that will eventually deflate your hopes. We hope it's the former!

dating.com

As always, remember to sign up to at least three sites any any one time. This will help your dating efforts immensely by giving you variety, increased interaction and a chance to compare like for like. A lot of things in life don't come easy, but if anything is worth a little effort, then it's love.

    Dating.com is a criminal site

    Review:

    I have tried this dating.com website for a month. And more and more I realize that this site hired many beautiful men and women to lure users to their trick and spend money just for chatting service. Those hired persons will never accept to contact you outside of this site. I think this is a way of cheating people to take money. We should announce this for everyone to know and avoid loosing money for this shit. Must be reported to the authorities to close it down for good.

    A great international dating site

    Review:

    I've been on Match.com and would often get responses from people who were pretending to be local, but were from across the ocean. Here they don't have to pretend to be local and can honestly tell you who they are and where they are from. I found a couple of honest girls here, who didn't ask me for money, and refused to contact me on my personal email. Having trouble finding local, maybe international is the way to go. But still be cautious.

    dating.com is a big joke!

    Review:

    I tried dating.com website last few days hoping to find a serious relationship or some kind of relationship which is new to me because of the different place/state the man could be. Gladly I didn't pay for that site some chats from different men has the same introduction.what the..

    Scammers

    Review:

    this site is a total scam and no real people are writing. Even before I updated my profile and uploaded any pics, I received a tonn of typical romantic messages from identical glamorous, model-looking men definitely viral ones. The system required payments for responses to these fake profiles and I proceeded to delete my profile, which is impossible. Hence I dlted all the info, renamed my profile into ''fuck off''. I keep on receiving loads of messages from these identical profiles and lots of inceitives to spend money on this shit. total scam

    The numbers don't add up

    Review:

    Dating.com is definitely a scam. One of the women profiled is a fourth year medical student at the age of 20. Then when you look at her other photos it says she she works full time as a business administrator. She is a real catch, a multi tasker lol . She can study a medical degree and work full time. Not sure which university she goes to, she must have started when she was 16. Clearly they can't get there facts oops I mean lies right. Don't go near this site.

    Fake for sure

    Review:

    Dating.com is FAKE like it's good reviews. Fake customer service....."what's app" for a company based in New York City? People on the site claim they don't have email and can only use this site because they don't have internet. But wait....they can log onto this site? Daters don't want you to send emails through the site only chat. Very expensive..... $10 to view each photo, $10 to read an email, $10 to send an email, $1 per minute for chat; though the clock seems to run quicker than yours. They even charge $1 for emojis.....lolol! If you read the fine print they state they are not responsible for charges contacting or booking trips to see your scammer....I mean interest. They also state they will forward your correspondence to any credit card company to fight any chargebacks or disputes. Do yourself a favor....ignore the fake positive feedback and don't waste a penny or minute on the site or any of their sister sites like AmoLatina, Russian Brides, ArabianDates, AfricanDates, etc....

    Dating.com

    Review:

    I've been on this site for 4 days now they keep on sending lots of automated messages.Dont even mention the money you pay to chat I met this guy and told him that we need to chat outside of the website he seemed very sincere and true but then when I look at the pictures of this guys they are all professional fine. When said to him let's chat outside of this platform he said what's wrong with it. I said firstly I feel lot of people here are playing games and it's too expensive I left him my email and stopped responding to his chats I wanna wait and see if he make contact. But i can say without doubt that it's fake.
  • Oct 22, 2017, A guy Who Should Have Known Better (Man, 44)

    Dating.com, AmoLatina, etc...all related sites are bogus.

    Review:

    $50 USD to send e-mails? Lucky you, that's cheap. The place more than nickel-and-dimes you. Once someone sends a text, it costs 1 credit/minute to converse. To read an e-mail there is 10 credits. A photo sent to you? 10 more credits. On and on. $96 US gets you 160 credits (which is at a 25% discount), which may last a day and a half...What sets it apart is that MOST of them women are unreal. Beyond gorgeous, even those listed as teachers.The site itself seems to block 99% of attempts at exchanging contact information, not just unsolicited; the ones that DO get through, well, the women claim not to know what you're sending OR that they want to talk to you there more first. So tell me, considering how much this can rack up--easily the cost of a round-trip ticket from South America to the East Coast and back!---how is this fair? A real conversation on Dating.com costs a LOT. If you were a real woman, and sincere, why would you do that to some guy? Literally the only way the site lets you and someone else exchange information is by signing a Marriage Brokers disclosure style document...which they do NOT advertise is the only means of providing uncensored e-mail or phone number...So you fill it out, and if the other person fills theirs out then MAYBE if they're real you may hear from them. I thought Match.com, etc., were spendy, but my suspicion is that a lot of women on there are getting a chunk of change for talking to these shmucks, stringing out the conversations. And yes, as mentioned the women are amazingly gorgeous. Even with cultural things taken into consideration it's clear they've taken professional studio photos in most case. The good part about Dating.com is that, unlike Craigslist, you don't get buried in spam. Bad part is they bury you in proposals and greetings from *cough* real women and 98% of the time YOU ARE PAYING. Literally. Just stop, turn around, and go somewhere else.

    Dating.com eats $

    Review:

    I paid three times in total sum of be USD50, hoping to contact some of the girls but they ended up telling me they can't contact via email or phone, that's strange, then how could we contact in real-life? I also created another account without photo and intro, they can still send me bunch of messages....gee, they only want to eat your money... I paid my $ and learned my but it is a total fake.

    Its now proven Dating.com is fake!

    Review:

    At first Im on my facebook scrolling, and I saw this app. Then I installed it and feel really excited, on my first signed up I got a bunch of messages from different man that look handsome and most of their photos are look like a model and then I replied them. But I was a bit curious and wondered because some of them didn't respond back. And their message is really different all of them cant say your name or even introduce themselves first. Then after a minute cant chat them back because you need to subscribe and pay credit. Then I wonder if I pay but There is one thing that come's in my mind, "why go to the google first and see the reviews about this site." And now I read a reviews that its fake and thanks that I came here or else I waste my money and time. And thankful that some sharing their experience and the truth. I made another name on dating.com without heading profile and no picture but still recieve a bunch of automated messages like a promises or about love or something like romantic. Haha its really proven that its fake!

    Why dont they focus on local connections?

    Review:

    I had high hopes for dating.com really did. But as soon as I noticed the stuff about “meet anyone anywhere” I started to get worried. After I joined my fears were completely realised. Not enough effort in setting you up with people near you. If I wanted to meet a girl miles away id join a freakin russian bride site. Not happy but every cloud has a silver lining, its one less site to try out and ill move on to something better next, wont be hard! ;-)

    Dating.com - Fake

    Review:

    First dating website I have ever registered with and I am suspicious already. With exception of one, I feel like I am receiving messages from automated robots in order for the site to prompt exchanges and gain money for extra credits to work out if the person is real or not. Great business drenched in fraudulent behaviour.
  • Jul 23, 2017, Don't Fool Me (Man, 45)

    Poor not impressed at all

    Review:

    Site looks good to start of but then wen your inside the grls r 2 pretty n unrealistic 4 me. Left strate away. Avoid.
  • Jul 23, 2017, Michael K (Man, 43)

    Not as easy as they make out but still worth running a search

    Review:

    I think this is one of these love search sites that depend on where you live. If you're in big cities or towns you probably have a much better shot than those of us out in the sticks! I've been searching and considering theres not too many people within 20 miles ive still had some nice talks over the past few weeks. I don't drive so im restricted but would be willing to take a train for the right lady.
  • Jul 13, 2017, Peter Edward Chubbock (Man, 60)

    Check before you join

    Review:

    Have been on this site since March and meet a beautiful lady,but be warned once you get connected by getting credits 160 will cost you £86.00 that is for 2hrs chat if you talk every day your money will soon vanish.That is for just talking if you need extras you will have to pay more money / like sending photo's or animations , have asked the lady i have meet can I fly to her she said no, can I have your address she said no to that.There are companies out there that use women to keep men on line as long as possible to make money,so please be careful everyone.
  • Jul 13, 2017, jayme (Woman, 19)

    bogus site.. all fake..

    Review:

    it took me awhile to entertain the thought that all men there are fake.. was still taking chances and choosing what seemed like a real convo.. turns out, still a fake profile.. they lure u with pictures of good looking men, too good to be true profiles.. then u'll notice the pattern.. the whole site is fake itself.. unlike other sites, some members are fake but not the site itself... this site really has no intentions of pairing couples.. their intentions are to rip u off through credits to communicate.. cruel intentions...

    Dating.com

    Review:

    If there were an awsrd given for the Greatest Scammer, Dating.com would win it.
  • Apr 17, 2017, Chris (Man, 46)

    Not a bad option

    Review:

    Been using this in london and must say it's a bit better than some of the other sites ive been using to try and find the woman or me lol. I like the way its set up and it's got a nice mobile app too so I can use it like all the cool kids do when im on the bus to work. Split with my long term gf last christmas so hoping this is the site to get me back on track on the relationship front. Fingers sand toes crossed anyway.
  • Apr 16, 2017, Alan (Man, 47)

    Like it

    Review:

    Not been a member long but giving it a shot. Nice looking site and some really nice looking women on there. Some even have their emails. Not decided if it's all to good too be true yet but hoping for the best and so far quite happy with it overall.

    My Dating.com review

    Review:

    It's not the worst site out there but I expected a bit better I guess with a company name like dating.com. Ive spoken to a few members and tried to set up a few dates but nothing yet. Some really nice people but they will need to start putting the 'dating' in to 'dating.com' soon or ill have to go somewhere else.
  • Apr 3, 2017, Jason Pervola (Man, 45)

    5/10 Meh

    Review:

    Everything about dating.com is meh. Nothing special. As we say in my town, all fur coat and no knickers. Don't pay until you've done a proper search and made sure it's busy near you.
