“Well, what can I say!”

Written on: 03/06/2021

I can say I have spoken to some lovely people on here, however only 2 people have asked why I chose this site, i'm an army brat with family who are serving. I have had lots of views from both men and women, however as my status reflects I'm only after friendship, when others seem to put both friendship and dating that is not is what is meant and honesty doesn't seem to matter to many. The forums are enlightening and give you an insight to others, however you need to take everything that is… Read Full Review

“Forum full of attention seekers”

Written on: 30/04/2021 by Kaelyn223 (1 review written)

The site itself is pretty good, but at times can veer off from its intended purpose of supporting our armed forces. One you get past the young chancers, there is some decent individuals to converse with. Where the site is let down unfortunately is the public forum. Previous reviews on this site are bang on, a certain poster and her friends ruin it for everyone, she has even infultrated this reviews site, spamming every review with negativity, showing her for what she is. Fortunately most of… Read Full Review

“Ive found new friendships ”

Written on: 21/04/2021 by Barrett105 (1 review written)

Joined this site over a year ago and have formed new friendships with both male and females. I’m not personally looking for the one and whilst I have come across a few who have tried which others have mentioned in previous reviews I politely say no or have a good laugh over their messages. Having never been active in the forum i have read nearly every thread posted since joining and some regular posters have no idea of the meaning of a forum and do use it for meaningless replies instead of a… Read Full Review

“Love It”

Written on: 21/04/2021 by Broderick86 (1 review written)

I stumbled across this site many years ago when looking for a pen pal and having military connections i wanted to do my utmost to offer support. Although the site seems to have moved away from this (as hardly anyone writes letters these days) and seems to be more focused on the dating aspect, do not let that put you off. The site is full of wonderful people to chat to and many friends can be made. Like every site there are down sides but on the whole as long as the negativity is ignored then… Read Full Review

I have been a member of this site for many years and have always found admin to be extremely helpful with any issues raised. You must report any issues you have. Sadly, the comments made in response to reviews (that someone has made today on this site) just magnify any issues on Forces Penpals that admin are trying to fix. I'm so concerned by the level of these comments that i have taken screenshots to send to the site admin at Forces Penpals.

“Drivel”

Written on: 27/03/2021 by qwSears429 (1 review written)

I've been on this site on and off for a few years, every time hoping the experience would be somehow different... Same old same. I always joined for friendship only, I'm ex military and wanted to connect with people with similar experiences etc. I'm female and always enjoy a good chat and banter but this site has none of that in my experience. There are a few nice and genuine people however the majority are either looking for quickies, dirty talk, tinder style hookups, or if females just… Read Full Review

“What the hell is this!”

Written on: 12/02/2021 by Huntinghighlow (1 review written)

Absolute joke of a site, glad I only paid for a week! Nothing forces related at all, other than the fact there are serving military & veterans on there. The chatroom is like a ghost town & the forum, well its blatantly obvious who the other reviews are talking about. Admin are useless, haven't got a clue what they're doing, you can see who their favourites are. Avoid this site at all costs, nothing morale boosting at all, it's more just a place for desperate women with no life to get their… Read Full Review

“Well!!!”

Written on: 11/02/2021 by 160Rasmussen (1 review written)

YBeen on awhile and sad to say site has gone down hill!! Forum has no reference to forces at all, not many in forces actually participant, which is sad as that’s what the site is about.!’see previous forum threads’!!! But if you want to know idle rubbish on songs , meals and the life’s of some of the frequent thread writers, and Jeezs how bloody boring, then it’s the site for you. Very clicky and dominated by certain individual. Absolutely disgusting and not worth the money!!!… Read Full Review

“Awful place.”

Written on: 11/02/2021 by 221Harrison (1 review written)

I looked at the forum at forcespenpals and was amazed to see page after page of ridiculous threads all centered around the same few women. I've never seen such drivel. The same subjects are written about day after day mostly aiming derogatory comments towards men. Don't waste your money, it's pathetic… Read Full Review

“Shame!!!!”

Written on: 10/02/2021

Being a relatively new user to this site i wish i'd read the reviews beforehand. On the whole if you can get talking to the right people then it's a great site. Very friendly apart from a few members. I have joined for friendship only and i'm glad to say that's working out brilliantly.  From what i have been told there is no point in contacting admin as they do nothing to support those members that rely on this site for support.  Sorry i could not be more positive in my review. Give the site a… Read Full Review

“Don't have a different opinion to the forum police!!!”

Written on: 09/02/2021 by Anastasia189 (1 review written)

The site itself and its support of the forces (less the pervs) is pretty good, let down by the public forum. In short, good site with varying chat depending on who you come across… Read Full Review

“Do not bother!”

Written on: 28/11/2020 by ygWood1946 (1 review written)

Huh, well where do I start... I agree with the majority of reviews with the WhatsApp and dirty pictures, the dishonesty and integrity of these "men" is just disgraceful. One guy who assured me he was separated started messaging me and we met up and started a relationship for a few months only to find out he was actually married with 2 kids was visiting me one weekend and home the next! I never thought I was gullible but he fooled my family and friends. Ladies save yourself the heartbreak and… Read Full Review

“Very draining, be careful ”

Written on: 31/10/2020 by tuBurton336 (1 review written)

The site is full of married men, men wanting hook ups and wanting to send nudes. If they’re not married they don’t know what they want. I found this to be a very dishonest environment. Not many are interested in having a genuine conversation. Lots of strange people on there too sending inappropriate messages. The forum is an absolute joke...it’s like a glossy mag for bored and bitchy old women. It’s no wonder none of the soldiers actually post on there. The female side of things is just… Read Full Review

“Shocking”

Written on: 24/09/2020 by Harry135 (1 review written)

I have never experienced a level of bullying like I have on that site. One woman in particular is the ringleader. Admin are idiots for allowing this to continue but they're only interested in keeping the paying customers sweet. The whole site has had enough. We are paying for a service that is a total let down. I'm not subscribing again!… Read Full Review

“Not worth the time and effort ”

Written on: 30/06/2020 by StevenMills468 (1 review written)

Well what to say...... I’m genuinely military and a serving regular- this website is a disgrace to Her Majesty's forces, I’m actually disgusted that her forces are actually associated. It’s just full of men haters, constantly running men down whilst trying to appear funny and interesting- not one educational or interesting discussion can be found on the forum, the forum is policed not by members by some kind of site admin police that react to complaints by other members not by what is… Read Full Review

“Save your money”

Written on: 12/05/2020 by Peters375 (1 review written)

Plenty of game players and married men.Most of the single guys dont have any relationship experience or know how to treat or let alone speak to women.Sick of guys disrespecting women calling them mental cases when plenty of them are mental head cases themselves.Your basically paying a tenner a month to be treated and spoken to like dirt !. All the same people online 24 hours a day.They try and get you on whatsapp so they can ask for dirty pics and most just want a dirty chat and the rest dont… Read Full Review

“Waste of time”

Written on: 04/06/2019 by MarleneClancy1952 (1 review written)

I joined this site with the intention of supporting military personnel....instead it's just page after page of women chatting on the forums with very little "military" knowledge or input. They can't resist the urge to post every stupid, mundane & unimportant detail of their lives in the hope of getting someone to like or be impressed by what their life entails! Everyone is expected to ask "what's wrong"?! It's a haven for attention seekers! After asking around it seems there have only been 2… Read Full Review

Hahaha. Well makes a change from fav song, movie, good, drink the list goes on. Well I’d rather need read about someone lounge wear or what ever it is called and read about someone’s antics that they ended up near naked by the window. So you get the gist
