The Full Story:
Some people may be turned off by the name of the site, but the site is simply being honest about its purpose. Hornymatches.com is a place for horny individuals to hook up. Unlike a mainstream dating site, Hornymatches.com does not offer us any weary platitudes about love, the meaning of life, or other pseudo-profundities. If you want a no-nonsense adult dating site, then Hornymatches.com will be to your liking.
Another thing I like about Hornymatches is that all their member profiles are manually verified. So what does this mean exactly? Unlike other sites that cheat members by posting fake profiles (and that allow fake profiles to be submitted), you will be unlikely to find a single bogus profile at Hornymatches.com. The site’s verification process is done by real people who check each and every profile thoroughly.
The site’s layout is simple and clean. Pages are basically white. The site has a single means of communication with other members – internal email. This email function, however, is exclusive to members. You may find this annoying, as it means that the site’s functionality is pretty limited if you’re on a free membership, but HornyMatches is hardly alone in taking this “tease don’t please” approach. You can at least browse and search profiles for free.
The “local” search is confined to a radius of thirty miles from your location, and searching is done through checkboxes and keywords. I also tried the site’s Cupid function, which allows for more accurate “matched” results.
The links for Navigation are Home, My Account, Search, Browse, Webcam chat, Cupid, Network, and Help. As a member, you’ll find that your main page is quite similar in appearance to a webmail inbox. On the left part of the screen, you’ll find new messages, total messages, new winks, total winks, new additions, and total additions. At the right side, you’ll get to see the exact number of people logged in–I don’t know if this is the number of paid members or both members and guests combined.
A positive attribute of the site is that Hornymatches.com can be viewed in German, Italian, Portuguese, French, Spanish, and English. You can upload videos, do database searches, and view other members’ profiles. What about free membership? If you haven’t paid the site’s membership fees, you can only see a profile picture. The profile is simple: age, picture, what he or she is looking for, and lifestyle particulars.
One thing I look for in a dating site is the ability to block emails. Nothing irritates me more than a person I’ve crossed off my list sending me messages repeatedly. This site allows members to block emails from selected people.
Hornymatches.com’s membership pricing plans are at the expensive end, but their membership database size is huge, which implies to me that people are enthusiastic about the site. First-timers may feel that memberships are overpriced, but I think that after a few days checking the site out, chances are they would find the money was worth the admission. In rounded figures, the costs are: $30/month (silver-recurring), $35 (gold-recurring), $60/3 months (silver-recurring).
The site has 2 kinds of memberships: silver and gold. For a higher-status membership, you could do a more sophisticated searching, get a faster technical support, and get access to other features. The site’s browsing functionality is excellent. You select the country, then the province, and then you go to the categories. Try it, and you’ll discover that browsing and navigating are user-friendly.
All things considered, this site does a good job of allowing people from all walks of life to meet others for fetishes, casual sex, flirting, or platonic friendship. You have a good chance of finding others in your area who share your passions and interests. It doesn’t matter if you’re very gay or very straight or even bisexual, Hornymatches.com will hook you up.
