The GoodLegitimate site with little spam and scam * Ratio of men to women is decent * The Sire will reimburse any member who has not found a good match within three months * Customer service is exceptional * Any fake profiles are taken down immediately.
The Bad* Price increase recently * More men then women on site (but not at all surprising.)
Passion.com has millions of members, most of whom really are actual people looking to meet in person (as opposed to money scams and prostitution posed as members.) The site is slick yet easy to maneuver and people seem genuinely happy to be there. Some of the members are a little homely in their photos but that is attributed to the realness factor. The real world is an ugly place, heh! It's not filled with naked super models looking to have nympho sex like other sites are presenting.
The costs confused me. I think I was thinking it would be @ 22.00 for one month but in fact, it was not. It was over thirty dollars per month. The pricing was not easy to figure out so I will say it is around $31 per month with three-month and six-month plans discounted when bought in bulk. Still, for $31.00, you are getting a legit site with real people in the millions. It is worth it.
One is able to search and PM people as soon as they log on; free members may add up to five photos (but cannot view other member's photos in a full size); Paid members may add photos and search full sized photos; winks; customer and technical support; email capabilities with oter members (if the person emailing is a paid member. Free members can not email others.)
Free members are able to search age, location, gender, relationship type, and email address. Paid members are able to search with above criteria plus marital status, who's on line, who's newly added on line, hottest member, who's searched you, video and voice introductions, and distance from user's zip code. There are many more options besides the following but I have yet to explore everything.
This is the real deal. It's not filled with more charlatans than actual members looking to get jiggy. It's legitimate with a sprinkle of bad intentions. Of course, like most "fling" related sites, there are more men than women but that's human nature. It's not filthy like other sites are either and the taste level is realistic but not at all sugary and faux. There are so many features, which makes browsing really fun, especially as a paid member.
Custumer service at Passion.com really does exist. They take any fake, Nigerian scammer or prostitute type profile off line as soon as there is a complaint lodged against it.
Additionally, people seem really happy to be on Passion.com. No one is overly flaunting their junk but the overtone is sexual so one is left feeling as if they don't need a shower after having a browse. Unless, of course, the shower is cold.
