“Dating sites are a ripe zone for removing cash from...”

Written on: 22/08/2015 by michael54321 (2 reviews written)

Dating sites are a ripe zone for removing cash from vunerable people...FREE DATE is no exception. Signing is fairly easy, although ponderous. Almost before I'd completed my profile I had someone wanting to meet me! So having clicked on this button.....yes,you guessed it...the message came up that in order to 'see' the potential 'hotie' I'd be required to up-grade, at a price. Yet,oddly I was messaged and was able to 'converse' without having to pay up...so I concluded that the meet me… Read Full Review

“Good site but terrible customer service!”

Written on: 13/04/2015 by 3llena (1 review written)

I was enjoying using this free site until my account was suspended with no warning or reason. I've been contacting the site numerous times for months to query this but no response. I can't even use the 'delete account' option as it's not possible to do so if account is suspended, so annoying!!!… Read Full Review

Went on this website looking for genuine love, ended up with a complete psycho! There are so many faults with the site its unreal. Got chatting to a man from this site and dated him a few times. He seemed genuine. He turned out to be a complete psycho with a criminal record. He has damaged me in more ways than I care to mention. After we broke up he started harassing me on the website. I blocked him then warned the site admin of what was going on. Appaulingly they did absolutely NOTHING. As… Read Full Review

If any of you are looking for genuine love or even just fun DO NOT go on there. Its very dangerous and the admin couldn't care less. There are a lot better places out there.

Hi people.
Yes I did mean free dating.co.uk
I met one man on there who only wanted a one night stand. Spoken to a few others who were weird. But this one was the worst of all.
It is the worst relationship of my whole life and I now need medication because of it. I had a lucky escape. I don't think I will ever get rid of the depression or emotional scars.
My advice would be to try a safer website or meet someone in person. This website is full of perverted old men.
When I explained the situation to the site admin they did nothing about him at all. I had to leave because of him it should have been him being blocked.
Its such a shambles of a site and has dangerous and twisted people on it.
To any woman or man DO NOT go on this website. It is an atrosity.

“Not so EliteSingles”

Written on: 27/08/2014 by Cailynn216 (1 review written)

Be careful of this site-the contractual terms are written so as to draw you into greater expense than you intended- in a two month subsciption there is a 7-14 days period at the end when the subscription can not be cancelled and is automatically extended to three months at a higher rate of payment. Not quite dishonest but very sharp practice. The client base is also not all it's cracked up to be… Read Full Review

“Found My One!!”

Written on: 18/02/2014

I was a bit apprehensive at first with this site, but it did come recommended by a friend. I had loads of contacts from people, some I communicated with, others I just deleted as I was not interested in that person. I had only been on it 4-6 weeks when someone caught my eye, I added him as a favourite and he replied to me. We hit it off straight away on this site, then decided to meet and take it from there, when we met up it was the same we got on great! We have so much in common I would never… Read Full Review

“Too Many Fake Profiles”

Written on: 03/08/2013 by jimmymui (1 review written)

I tried out this website because I'm looking for a dating site that is free to use, but almost as soon as my profile had been verified and was up on the site I began receiving messages that didn't make sense. I am a gay male, so my profile clearly stated that I was a male looking for males, and yet I kept receiving messages and winks from profiles stating they were 'male looking for females'. This leads me to believe that many profiles on the site are fake, and most of the messages you receive… Read Full Review

I came across the site in error. Being single I signed up. The same night I was chatting to a lady with similar interests. A couple of days later we exchanged numbers. Following week we met and have been dating since. Appearance of the site of the site is that it is a little old and out of date but hey, it's free!… Read Full Review

“Does what it says on the tin”

Written on: 20/01/2013 by StarPaws (1 review written)

It's a free site that offers the opportunity to date. It's that simple. Like any other site, all life will be on there and you will no doubt find people that you do not like or bother you. There is a handy block button to prevent repeated unwelcome attention and a report button for Moderator and site owner to assess the merits of and act accordingly. Now some may report and see no action taken but perhaps do not take into account the fact that they are not impartial, whereas those… Read Full Review

“Badly run site”

Written on: 12/01/2013

The site is old fashioned in feel and looks very out of date. I entered the Forums for a debate and suffered a tirade of abuse from a member. I complained about ad hom attacks to the mods there and got no reply. I tried to log on this morning and my account has beed suspended. Completely unfair but no great loss. I can only assume that this behaviour is acceptable as nobody had the decency to respond to my queries. Steer clear… Read Full Review

i agree the bullying is quite honestly beyond a joke if you are not right wing dont join the forums,
the moderator threatened to ban me after some of the forum members still there by the way have insulted me several times and i reprted them. it was so bad that people messaged me with thier concerns. i got told that i was going to be banned if i got reprted again.

if you want to date most of the chaps just want no strings relationships and leave lewd messages.

i suppose you get what you pay for not worth the hassle,
very badly moderated he always sticks up for his cohorts a bad experience. i have seen sites like this moderated in this way and they soon lose sponsorships.

“Site run based on Admin's personal opinions.”

Written on: 11/01/2013

At first glance this sight appears to be relatively straightforward and enjoyable. Until you are continuously spammed by various members and the 'filter' system for the inbox is crude at best. Members can then be banned with no prior warning, no further explanation as to why, and when approaching the Admin you are met with a smug attitude and lines taken out of context as 'justification' for profile suspension. Forum rules are not upheld consistently causing confusion as to whether or not. A… Read Full Review

I don't understand what you mean about being"spammed" by various members. I've never bothered with the forums. You can block people if you don't want them to keep messaging you which I have done many times. I also block people with no photos which I have said I would do on my profile. I said if people look at my profile and they have no photo then I will block them, as I think it unfair that they can look at my many photos, yet I can't see what they look like as they don't have a single photo.

“If you're careful, it's a reasonable site”

Written on: 01/01/2013

The actual dating site is open to abuse. All information is entered without corroboration. There are no checks that the person is who they say they are. The forum used to be brilliant but now it is edited without the users agreement. Everything is so sanitised for the advertisers that the contribution might as well be by the moderator. Forget the forums and take care when you communicate with a potential date, I wasted two months talking to someone that I thought was 5 years younger than me… Read Full Review

“A great site.”

Written on: 09/08/2012

I've been a member for nearly 2 years now, and I'm an active member of the forums. The site is easy to navigate, and gives you the opportunity to write a decent profile, with both a 'description' and an 'interview' category, and a gallery option for pictures. You get to search all over the country, and you can filter your search, however, the filtering option to stop certain people messaging you is not so good. With regards to the forums, I am a regular poster. I find it enjoyable, and… Read Full Review

It is the case. I was attacked in the Forums, complained to the Mods and got banned!

“Freedating.co.uk”

Written on: 04/08/2012

There are boasts about the numbers using the site which are not supported when viewing the numbers online at random times. Rather than having a team of moderators there would appear to be just the one who reinvents the rules to castigate members when a purge is decided on - which happens intermittently. Members are banned with no warning, no explanation and there is no appeal. There is an odd system whereby if 3 members complain about a member there is automatic expulsion without a problem… Read Full Review

“Used to be a reasonable site until recently”

Written on: 06/07/2012

I had been a member of this site for quite a few years and used to mainly use the forums where you would get a free exchange of ideas. I would say that that changed a couple of years ago when cliques would appear who would,for want of a better phrase hunt certain individuals causing many to leave. It appears that the owner leaves everything up to the Moderator. A mistake,in my dealings with the moderator I found him/her to totally disregard anything that you said and allowed the damaging… Read Full Review
