RomantikDate.com presents itself with a simple landing page. It does not present any details about the kind of service that they offer, or the customer target, or the eventual costs. For someone with our extensive experience with dating portals, this is a warning sign that indicates a potential danger. However, the fact that there are no erotic pictures, contributes to the platform as having a professional look. Moreover, at the bottom of the page, there is a link to an interesting section. This is full of useful tips about how to navigate safely on a dating website.
To find out whether RomantikDate.com is a safe place to find your next partner, we created a test profile. We also checked the internet for past users’ reviews, and carefully read the Terms and Conditions. The results of our research are not what we were hoping for.
This is not a trial plan
RomantikDate.com provides misleading information on the homepage, which tricks people into thinking that using the service is free of charge. The truth is that only setting up an account is free, but this does not allow you to communicate with other members. To do that, you must sign up for a paid membership.
RomantikDate.com offers a cheap trial package, which runs for 3 days. It looks like the perfect solution because you can fully test the platform for just a couple of pounds. Unfortunately, it is a trap. If not cancelled in time, it will be converted into a much more expensive monthly subscription. The problem is that the required notice is 72 hours. Since the trial package runs for exactly for three days, it is impossible to avoid the automatic renewal.
Excerpt from the GTC (as of 14/11/2022)
You may cancel the auto-renew feature to avoid recurring charges, but you must act at least 3 days (that is, 72 hours) prior to the renewal date.
There might be more
Izeo Dating LTD is the site’s operator. We have already written several reviews, in the past, about this company from Dublin, in Ireland. Besides the subscription trap, they often use fake profiles to deceive their customers. We checked again the Terms and Conditions of RomantikDate.com, but this time we could not find any reference to chat moderators or staff profiles. Therefore, the legal evidence of this other rip-off is missing.
