The landing page shows a photo of a good-looking man. This dating site is for gays who want to connect with other men. GayGrinder.com also assures us that this is a reliable and secure website. This is easy for the operator to say. The 5-star rating also shown on the landing page looks promising, but we do not get to know where it comes from. We can hardly imagine that anyone except for the operator would praise GayGrinder.com. This dating site is an expensive money grabbing rip-off.
Where do all the members come from
GayGrinder.com also claims to have more than 1.6 million visitors every month. We have a very hard time believing that. A dating site that popular would surely have received several reviews on the internet. We do not manage to find any user that has expressed his or her experience with this site anywhere online. We do not doubt that GayGrinder.com is an active dating site, because the operator can simply create new profiles whenever needed.
From the terms and conditions
3.4. The purpose of this website is to enable (erotic) chat conversations between fictitious profiles and users, and therefore contains fictitious profiles. Physical meetings are not possible with these fictitious profiles.
According to the landing page, users can also send winks and pickup lines for free. You can only send them to show interest and start a conversation. Sending messages is not free. This makes it possible for the operator to earn a decent amount of money. The fictitious profiles exist for a certain reason. Fake chat operators use them to interact with the users, without having to introduce themselves as employees of the operating company. By flirting with the users, they manage to make them lose a lot of their money on GayGrinder.com.
The company responsible for this rip-off is called BD Technologies AG, based in Baar, in Switzerland. Apparently, the Swiss operator has not received much attention so far.
