If something is good, we tell you, if something is bad, we don’t skirt around the issue, we tell you.
Not only do we want to help you find a partner, but we want to protect your wallet from would-be scammers as well. Simply that we have been consumers in the past, and we noticed widely varying quality between dating websites.
Websites that make promises they can’t keep, sites that have astronomical charges that are hidden away in the small print, and there are websites that offer a free subscription, only to charge people once the free period is over, even if they unsubscribe. There are some fantastic dating sites out there, sites that have managed to pair people together for a love that will last a lifetime. We do very diligent research to let you know the good from the bad.
