“No longer free”

Written on: 20/11/2014 by NathalieDwyer (1 review written)

Went onto smooch today to find out it is no longer free. I then went into settings to try and delete my profile. It is in the *small print* at the bottom in very tiny letters in shaded grey. Do not be fooled. I dislike these kind of tactics and will be going elsewhere… Read Full Review

I personally think its a good thing, at least it will weed out the creeps who are after only one thing. As far as I am concerned people who are serious about dating shouldn't mind paying it shows their intent is genuine.

Dating with the intention of getting to know someone costs money anyway, what do you think happens when you meet up in person and go out? or is your idea of online dating chatting to someone free online until one of you gets bored?

I have to say I contacted the manager of whoever this guy is and he told me you can have an unlimited number of what he called 'first contact' messages, but you can only make 5 replies a day. Guess now we'll just have to include our emails in that first message, and if the person we're writing to is interested, they can email us right away so that we can both chat happily and forget about this site which is, in fact, quite a sorry sight :) No rhyme intended.
But this practice of making changes without prior warning certainly gives off a bad smell... I've been on paid sites - fake profiles, fake alerts and even paid members lie about their age or looks or start talking dirty. To pay or not to pay, the outcome will be pretty much the same...

“Avoid James118118118”

Written on: 21/10/2014 by strawberry_fluff (2 reviews written)

After initially messaging each other on the site, we swapped numbers BIG MISTAKE!!! As soon as we started texting he called me and wanted to come to my flat straight away and see me. He insisted he wasn't after "one thing" at that the reason he wanted to me asap was because he wanted to see if there was an initial spark before planning an "official date", he also asked sexual questions which forced me to end the contact and delete my profile. So Are you going to respond to negative feedback… Read Full Review

“Too good to be real...”

Written on: 06/10/2014 by cnSchroeder406 (1 review written)

Well I joined smooch about 6 months ago, at first I thought it was a good dating site, but after sending many many messages to the girls that I like, there was no reply from any of them and when I checked my "sent messages" THEY ALL SAY "UNREAD"...It is pretty obvious that these are admin made up profiles and they even look like they have been written by the same person! Trying to find a completely real dating site with real people on it is near impossible on the world wide web - 90% of all… Read Full Review

Good review! All dating sites are the same but it's worse if you pay for the service only to receive no replies - Match.com, eharmony, parship etc. Nothing is lost if you try a free site but it's much better as you say -to go out and meet real people.

“Extremely disappointed”

Written on: 26/08/2014 by ZeeTheHummingbird (2 reviews written)

I'll just be short - same faces on the Star Bar all the time. Absolutely same old faces, and I *do* mean 'old' - I'm 33, and I get messages from people who are 75! Besides, I get messages from people looking for 'friendship' though I clearly stated on my profile that I'm searching for a serious relationship. And when I try to search for someone myself, I see that all decent and nice-looking guys have not been active for quite a long time, which makes me think some of the profiles may be fake… Read Full Review

Written on: 17/02/2014

I put down where I want to meet someone,the ones given me are from all over the country.smooch decided that the women I view are not the age bracket I desired. I like slim women and stated this,but all I got was big ladies.I can't get a photo up as I've no idea how,as I've never been on any type of computer or talent before let alone date sites. Very dissapointed and can't get this site rid of either...so overall its rubbish and has put me right off … Read Full Review

You won't probably like this but just because a lady isn't slim doesn't mean to say that she doesn't have personality, looks and a a good heart to give. Sorry but i think you're a bit shallow, and people will see through you. Open your heart and mind to everyone and you'll do a lot better in your relationships out there.

“reality check”

Written on: 09/02/2014

Smooch is ok(very good actually as a free service), BUT does NOT help members by their clearly discriminatory practices....i.e female subscribers can prattle off a list of prejudicial exclusions on their profiles, but males cannot respond to this abuse or reject it without being given "warnings" by smooch admin that they are in violation of terms and conditions, etc, etc.....now would smooch admin or any of its members dare to offer pork sausages to muslims? Answer - NO! therefore smooch admin… Read Full Review

Well, it's not only men that are subject to prejudice on that site - my profile was deleted and when I mailed them asking why, they said that I'm Russian and because of that I'm evidently a csammer or a cam girl (I'm a big girl but I still have doubts just what that means). Well, I'm no scammer and I'm a University teacher of English, by the way. After I threatened them with legal action they reopened my profile, but even in this case - this site is a total waste of my time. There are no decent men at all - well, if I'm a Russian scammer, then UK guys are no better, since every of them was immediately asking for my phone in the first message they would send me! It's unsafe and stupid to give your phone number to a total stranger, and I would never do that. I'm looking for a serious relationship and for a marriage-minded guy, and his nationality doesn't matter for me at all. But Smooch is *not* a place to find a decent man, especially if they are so quick in labelling their customers scammers or bullies or whatever. It's them who are scamers, with all the profiles inactive, all the messages unread and suchlike! I'm very disappointed by this service!

“Change for the worst.”

Written on: 08/01/2014

Since Smooch changed the format of the site I have found the system to be very poor and navigation of the site is nowhere near as good as the previous format.The previous format was simple and easy to use and much better than the new system. To be honest the new format puts me off using the site and i'm sure plenty of other members are of the same opinion. Someone should have thought of the old saying, if it's not broke don't fix. it. Not at all impressed by the new format and think the site… Read Full Review

“Out with the new,bring back the old”

Written on: 05/01/2014

What computer minded geek managed to convince Smooch that their old website needed changing to this new version. I use computers every day and find the navigation on this new site terrible. Take some advice Smooch and get it changed real quick or you will find all your users migrating to you know where and just increasing the size of their site. This site is not user friendly. Get in a couple of middle aged males and females with limited computer experience and test it out before you release… Read Full Review

Just because I'm fifty it doesn't mean that I'm interested in the fat old trollops that this lot recommended. Apart from that you don't receive mail and it slows down your device and redirects you to even dodgier sites. There's no free lunch and potential for harm. AVOID !!!… Read Full Review

I joined the site last week, since then I have emailed and tried to have conversations with several local people but usually most will reply to you either just once or simply don't reply.

Its full of married me pretending to be single. Got chatting to one guy and cos i did not want to meet him at 10pm he wanted nothing more to do with me (thank god) Be careful if your a women as the chances are you will meet someone that will probably end up harming up or possibly killing or raping you. The men talk about wanting you within the first couple of emails that they send. Use a dating site that you have to pay for and not the free ones as it could cosy you your life. one to look out… Read Full Review
