The initial page of Dates-Me.com does not show any erotic content. This dating website addresses all those people who are looking for real love, rather than a casual sex experience. They claim that meeting a new and interesting partner has never been easier. A quick registration is everything required to start your search immediately. Apparently, after signing up, you will be able to get in touch with thousands of genuine profiles to flirt with. After that, it is just a matter of time before you will find the right one to meet.
The landing page does not mention anything about costs or subscriptions. But right after the registration, we are directed to the payment page. There, we learn that to get full access to all the features, we must purchase a premium membership. Among the different options, the most appealing is the 1-day trial package, which is sold at just €0.98. With this plan, we should be able to send unlimited messages, see the private pictures of any members, and find out who has visited our profile.
Is it a trap?
The problem with this subscription is that if it is not cancelled by the user, it will convert into a monthly plan, at a much higher price. To avoid that, the cancellation request must be sent at least one hour before it expires. We can say from experience is that this sounds like a subscription rip-off, but we could not find definitive proof of that. However, we recommend our readers to think twice before buying it, especially considering that it would be useless anyway.
The following note is from the Terms and Conditions
We may, from time to time, create profiles which are created, maintained, and managed by our employees (“Staff Profiles”).
This is a fake chat
The profiles on Dates-Me.com are not what they look like. Many of them are controlled by fake chat operators, whose job is to lure users into buying a premium membership. Since they are not identified separately in the system, paying members can never know whether they are talking to a genuine person or a fictional character. As usual, Arjaloz Ltd, the company registered in Nicosia, Cyprus, denies their customers the possibility of meeting each other.
