The online dating portal CasualDesire.com offers free registration. Also, on the landing page, we see a number of profile pictures. Those profiles show women only. Plus, the content of the profile pictures is mostly erotic. That gives us the impression that this casual dating portal has open-minded members. We also see the number of registered members. According to that number, this site has more than 1.7 million active users. That sounds great as well. But, the profiles on this site are not real. This is mentioned before registration on the landing page.
Meet your fictional match
CasualDesire.com advertises with a solid offer. The number of registered members appears to be promising. The operator of the site claims that this platform has more than 1.7 million members. But the profiles on this website are fake and controlled by computer bots. It is fair of the operator to show this important note about moderation on the landing page. There we read about computer-generated virtual profiles. Those profiles are created by the operator of the site for your “entertainment”. The profiles show fictional people with whom a date in real-life is not possible.
Usually, we would call this website a scam with a fake chat. But the note about moderation is provided clearly on the landing page. So, we cannot claim that the operator works with cheeky tricks to lure users into a rip-off. However, if a user did not read this note for any reason, their experience with this dating site will be terrible. After the registration, a new member will receive many messages from other profiles. Those profiles do not show a sign that it is fictional. Plus, the computer bots will not send a message about their actual purpose.
In a nutshell, after the registration there is no chance to spot the fake chat. The messages from the computer-generated virtual profiles stimulate new users into a chat for which costs will occur. A paid membership is needed to read and send messages. The costs for a membership are quite high, according to the reviews on the internet.
In the terms and conditions, we found the following note about the fake chat
You may interact with content generated by, or with the assistance of, automated online accounts (“Bots” or “Automated Profiles”), where none – or substantially none – of the actions and posts of that Automated Profile are the result of, or arise in connection with, a natural person’s profile or otherwise User Content.
The opinion of the internet community
On the internet, we found many negative reviews about the site. Also, the operator of the portal is known, but not for good reasons. The reputation of the company is bad as well. It seems that this is not the only dating site run by this company. All their portals use computer-generated virtual profiles, and it is not possible to find a real person. Plus, costs will occur for a membership that will end in a subscription rip-off, according to the reviews from former users.
