General Look and Feel
At the homepage you will be welcomed with a hot, naked women. This sends a strong message on what is going on inside the site and who is in there. If you’re not comfortable with nudity and explicit images, this is not for you. The site is full of sexually suggestive images.
If you enjoy this kind of environment then you will have fun using the website. The only problem is you really can’t open it on public computers. You will need to have a private place to view the site because of its adult content nature.
Over 10 Million Members
They also claim to have over 10 million members already. This is not hard to believe knowing that ###Dating.com is part of a larger network of adult dating personals. Plus they have been in this business for years now. Among its sister sites are AmateurMatch.com, WebcamClub.com, Untrue.com, and SpiceorNot.com. We already have reviews for some of these sites, just look them up from our archives.
###Dating.com has a really good user interface. It’s full packed with features that you will need to get you laid but still it’s very easy to navigate. I think this is a plus for a site that has a lot to offer. Making all the good stuff lined up and accessible at single click makes an impressive design. All major parts of the site can be accessed through main menu bar at the top of the page. The left panel from member’s area will allow you to access profile related functions.
IM Chat and Chat Rooms
It also offers an impressive IM Chat function. Gold members can use instant messenger. This includes the use of 1-on-1 chat. From the top navigation bar is a menu tab to access live chat rooms. It’s like tradition chat rooms where you have different rooms or channels to join. Every room will list how many men and women are chatting. This should give you an idea which room to join.
Unfortunately chat rooms and instant messaging function is only available to gold members. Free members can receive chat request but will not be able to respond to it without upgrading. However, with some limitations standard members can send and reply to messages to and from other users. They are also able to send flirts and add other users to their buddy list.
###Dating.com has an interactive member’s image gallery. Standard members can have a preview of each gallery with thumbnails and ratings. But only gold members can rate, comment and view each entry.
Every time that we review a site we always check how functional the search tool they’re using. Now this is one of the most impressive features of ###Dating.com. It allows users to use “Normal Search”, “Advanced Search”, and Username Search”.
Normal Search will pull up members that will match your basic search criteria including sex partner preference, age range, and proximity to your location. Advance Search will include the abovementioned criteria’s plus interest and ethnicities. But only gold members can do advance search.
Username Search can be used to look up a member by its unique username. Every member has a unique username. If you want to check on someone you can use this search tool.
From the Search menu at the top of the page are drop down menus or options to do two quick searches. The first option is for “Newest Members Search”. This will pull up the latest members who have recently joined the site. The second menu is “Hottest Members Search” which will pull up members who have received the highest ratings from other members.
Not all website will invest in photo or identity verification process on its members. But ###Dating.com encouraged all its members to verify their photos. A member who has a photo verified increases their chance of finding a real hookup. It tells other members that you’re serious with your online dating venture.
The process is really simple. All you need to do is send an official identification document to ###Dating.com support team. The form must include your photo, issuer and date. You can strikeout or blur other information’s you don’t want to share.
An official verification form or document is a government or state ID like driver’s license, passport, etc. You just have to scan your ID and upload a copy for verification. It may take up to 2 days for the team to approve your verification.
Once verified your profile will appear with a photo verified icon. This will make your profile a stand out among other members. You will also get a lot of hits or views. But the most important thing is the fact that you just proved to everyone that you’re a real person and not a poser or a time waster!
Everyone can sign up and be a member to the site but not all can verify their photo. Let’s face it every dating site has posers, spammers and scammers. This site is not free from these good for nothing guys with really bad intentions. What matters is their presence is minimized.
You only need to have an email address to sign up and get a standard membership to ###Dating.com. They have a quick two-step sign up process which includes filling out a simple form and email verification.
You can create an account without handing out your credit card information’s. This is a good move to invite a lot of new sign ups and let people tryout the site before they pay anything. Plus they even allow free members to send and receive limited number of messages every day.
###Dating.com is a premium sex dating site. But that service will not come for free. Members can choose to upgrade to gold membership in order for them to fully enjoy every part of the website.
They only offer one type of premium membership which is gold. Currently they have two gold plan offers. First is to pay monthly membership which is equivalent to $29.95 per month. The second option is to pay for three months plan which equivalent to $69.95 renewable every 3 months. This brings your monthly membership fee to $23 per month.
Members who signs up for 3 months gold membership plan are covered by their 3 months get laid guarantee. It’s a guarantee that if a member is not able to find a real hook up within 3 months of using the site can have an extra 3 months gold membership for free.
Use of Fictitious Profile (Online Cupids, OC)
While testing the site, we have a lot women or female members sending messages, chat requests, buddy requests and flirts. Unfortunately all of them are fake profiles! They are there to make an impression that the site is more active than it actually is.
###Dating.com confirms the use of fictitious profiles marked with a yellow OC icon. They are called Online Cupids. They are controlled by people who work for the site. According to their, TOC’s these profiles are there to proactively monitor members and weed out users who are violating the site’s term of use.
Low Men to women member’s ratio
Another basic concern when it comes to online dating sites is the fact that women members are always outnumbered by the guys. And this website is no exception. Our conservative assessment is that there is 1 girl for every 6 guys here. These figures are taken from number of online men and women members at different times of the day. We also have to consider that some of these members are not who or what they say they are.
