Dating.com is a popular yet hardly criticized platform launched by DMM Solutions Inc. in 1993, firstly as a desktop site and later as an application. It has a complicated payment system: credits are needed for all actions but they are available only to those who already paid for the subscription.
- Vast database
- Virtual gifts as ice-breakers
- Live stream
- Some interesting features
- Many accounts are fraudulent
- Professional webcam girls
- Credits should be bought despite of Premium subscription, otherwise no messaging, chatting, or other important features available
- Viewing pictures or videos demands the maximum of credits
- Customer support reacts quickly but does nothing, they simply copypaste the same answers to everyone
List of Top 3 Dating Apps for 2019
1-month Premium subscription – $9.99
Credits can be additionally bought
“Dating.com is my biggest disappointment! I had to check the reviews first! I paid for the subscription and then I bought the credits many times, but I received nothing except for similar robotic messages! People trust them, they cannot betray us like that! It’s heart-breaking. I don’t know why but I thought with such a famous name they should be good, but it just got me upset and exhausted. For the time and money I spent, I would already meet 10 guys on another app. It’s so unfair and frustrating.” (Ann, 29, San-Francisco)
Dating.com app is bold enough to give almost nothing back for the paid Premium subscription. To be exact, this subscription covers only 1 offline message to 10 users, 10 free messages to 10 users, a certain number of ice-breakers daily, but that’s it. To do all the rest, users have to constantly buy credits. But even this isn’t the main problem: those who buy and spend credits, do not receive any response from other members. Even if they receive anything, it’s usually from scammers. How to call such an app if not useless then?
If it keeps on existing for years, then it was probably more useful on the beginning, but not anymore. The absolute majority of reviews are negative. None can be satisfied with the fact that every breath on this app is for money. It feels like in a virtual prison, when you can do nothing or most of your movements are severely limited. It makes no sense in our age of free or inexpensive dating apps.

As we once said, a complex and many-staged system of payments is always a sign of fraudulent nature of the application. We see that on the example of Dating.com too. We warn you to stay away from such apps and always study the reviews from real users thoroughly before you install anything. It saves your nerves too, not only your money.
It’s not always a problem to pay for dating. there are quite expensive dating apps that are still in the top of leaders. People don’t mind to pay, if it’s just once a month and the amount or the service are very clear. For this reason, many choose to pay for 3 months at once and not to be bothered anymore. But it’s extremely annoying to make multiple little payments every now and then, sometimes every day or several times a day! Who would enjoy disrespecting and misusing their credit card that much.
Dating is dating, many people perceive this word seriously. Dating differs from hookups, so the users expect something bigger. However, judging from the behaviour of webcam girls and female users of this app (who seem to be hired intentionally), it’s rather a sex-oriented app than a relationship-oriented app. Moreover, it’s a paid virtual sex not even real sex.
As a summary, we wouldn’t recommend this app at all. Of course, you can still join and try to become a part of those 5% who got a positive or neutral experience on Dating.com, but we would better warn you to stay away.
