OnlyGuys.dating is an online dating portal for gay men who are looking for love, or even just a hookup. At least, initially, that is what it looks like. But this website hides a subscription rip-off. The landing site promises that every single profile is manually verified. It displays a series of labels, which are supposed to inspire trust, but they mean absolutely nothing. The website is managed by Paidwings AG, which is a company based in Cham, in Switzerland.
We discovered that all profiles were blurred when we accessed the website. There was no way to evaluate if the accounts were quality profiles or not. So, anyone interested in a subscription would basically have to risk it. Further, the membership is not exactly cheap, and it entails recurring payments. There is nothing suspicious about the cancellation terms, but we know from experience, that this operator is not trustworthy.
As we usually do for our reviews, we looked for former clients’ opinions. Our search revealed that many users were furious at the company, after going through an ordeal, in trying to cancel their membership. The company seems to ignore all requests to terminate the agreement, so many people have decided to warn others about these flaky scammers. We do not have definitive proof that this is the case here, but Paidwings AG has not given us any good reasons to give them the benefit of the doubt.

2. paidwings accepts no liability that the User profiles shown in the match system and their interpretation as regards compatibility with other Users is accurate. paidwings is only responsible for the contact mediation and not for the success of the contact.
This website is part of a network of similar dating websites. As we signed in, we were asked several times, if we wanted to participate in a messaging system, which is shared with these other websites. We declined, as we intentionally wanted to keep things as simple as possible. Our goal was to check if it was possible to find a real hookup here, but to no avail. Even if you paid for a membership, you never know if all you are getting here, are automatically generated messages. This subscription rip-off is a total waste of time.
