NaturalSelection.ie describes itself as a great place to view photos from real people and to have meaningful conversations. To find out whether the dating website can be trusted or not, we do some research. We read the terms and conditions and the privacy policies. We also search the internet for user experiences and reviews. Fortunately, we cannot find any hints that the site is a scam or a rip-off of some sort. However, we do not think that the portal is a great choice.
How it works
The platform enables users to browse through a large selection of photos, mostly selfies, and upvote or downvote each picture. The more “likes” a photo gets, the higher it will be ranked, which supposedly increases the chances of being contacted.
To get in touch with each other, users can simply open a member profile and start a chat. Each user can only contact a maximum of five other users per day for free. After that, users must either pay to start a new conversation or wait until the next day. Luckily, the prices for the upgrades are very affordable and payment is done with PayPal, which is known to be safe and reliable. As far as we can tell, no rip-offs or scams are to be feared.
Lack of active users
Unfortunately, the site seems to have very low traffic. During our test, we do not get any replies from the members we started a chat with. Even the group chat is completely deserted and was last used two weeks prior to our test. Overall, the chances of finding someone for a date here seems extremely low., We cannot find any user experiences or reviews about NaturalSelection.ie online. This seems to confirm our impression that there are hardly any active users on the site.
NaturalSelection is based in Grand Cayman.
