Dates2Flirt.com is an online dating platform which promises to be the perfect tool for finding an exciting date, be it locally, or somewhere else, if you are travelling. We found that most users seem to be thousands of miles away, so localization of potential matches did not seem to be optimized. Either way, this does not matter because there is no way you can arrange a meeting in real life on here.
Registration is free, but there is not much you can do here, if you do not pay for the services. To chat with other users, it is necessary to purchase a paid subscription. Shortly after entering the members’ area, we started receiving messages from other members. This was rather surprising, since our test profile is empty. We would have been completely ignored in any authentic setting. This is usually a clear sign that there are fake profiles on the website.
Excerpt from the GTC (as of 17/10/2022)
5. OM shall use profiles created and operated by OM on the portal for marketing purposes, improving service quality, for presenting the message functions and for entertainment. The aforementioned are defined with “(c)” or a star in the system. Actual meetings/dates are not supported by this profile. The users are only able to send messages within the scope of the portal. Sending messages through the electronic mailbox requires a registration for payable services.
4. If the user has given his explicit consent, the cancellation right shall expire prematurely if the services requested by the user have been provided in full prior to exercising his cancellation right.
Subscription and credit system
Very often, we see in subscription rip-offs similar to this website, that the users get stuck in a never-ending loop of automatic renewals. Also, they are unable to communicate with the company and cancel the service. In addition to former members’ reviews, one of the tell-tales signs of such a rip-off is ambiguous language used. It is tricky to interpret, especially regarding the cancellation terms. In this case, the fine print informs the user that it is possible to cancel, within the first 14 days after signing the agreement.
However, it also says that the user can waive their right to do so. It is so easy to fall into a trap like this without even realizing it. Furthermore, the platform also has an alternative income stream. A credit system without recurring payments, for those who prefer to pay per message. Anyway, neither the credits nor the membership are worth it. This portal is a scam where you will never be able to meet with any of those fantasy profiles which inhabit this useless chat.
