Look, we love making these reviews funny, but sometimes we have to be serious, and this is one of those times.
Don’t go to HornyMatches.com. Don’t make any contact with anyone from HornyMatches.com. This site is a scam of the worst kind, and you will run the very serious risk of having your identity stolen if you go on this site and give them personal information.
We don’t like to be melodramatic. Read on, and see why we’re so adamant about keeping you guys away from this shithole.
HornyMatches.com Review: Why HornyMatches.com Isn’t in Our “Best” List
At first, we were pretty enthusiastic about HornyMatches.com. After all, they boasted a pretty high userbase (7 million users, according to the website), and the interface was nice and easy to use. It was very streamlined, and the site didn’t seem to care about cluttering our computer up with a lot of useless features, which is something we like in a cut-rate hookup website. Hey, don’t judge us, we’re simple guys. We have to navigate a LOT of these websites, and the less froufy buttons and menus that might give us a virus at any moment, the better.
The first thing that turned us off about HornyMatches.com was the price plan.
We hope you have money (and the people at HornyMatches.com do too), because you’re going to need it if you want to use this site at all. You’re paying over $30 a month for the most BASIC package that doesn’t even include all the bells and whistles.
Unfortunately, when we upgraded to the higher-priced option, we found the real problem.
HornyMatches.com doesn’t allow on-site communication.
That means emails, icebreakers, winks, chats, etcetera. HornyMatches.com has none of it. You can’t even send someone a contact request through the website, because HornyMatches.com doesn’t let you talk to anyone through the website.
Have you spotted the problem yet?
On-site communication keeps your information safe. On-site communication means that you never have to worry that someone is going to be able to access your account details and find stuff out about you through the website.
Not allowing users to communicate on-site is one thing. Unfortunately, HornyMatches.com actually RELEASES YOUR EMAIL ADDRESS to your potential matches, under certain circumstances.
Imagine everything you have saved on your email account. Account numbers, passwords, friends and family’s birthdays, etcetera. It’s not that hard for a phisher to access all of that information if they first get access to your account, and one of the ways they do that is by finding people willing to give out their email to strangers on the Internet.
Results From HornyMatches.com: Why HornyMatches.com Is Not Legit
Setting aside for one moment the fact that HornyMatches.com is a total scam and no one should ever use it, we DID use it, because we’re kind of dumb and really like getting laid…or science. Yeah, it was for science, that sounds way better.
We sent out 900 emails, because even if we’re a bunch of horny guys who are willing to sit on a scam site with our alternate emails for a few months, we’re still doing it for SCIENCE.
We got back less than a hundred.
This is a pretty damn dismal showing for us. We usually get back a few hundred at least—except from websites that are useless trash, like HornyMatches.com.
As a reminder, on SocialSex, our favorite website for hookups and quick flings, we got back almost 700 responses to our 900 emails, over a period of three months. THAT was a good showing. This was just sad.
Of those 95 that did respond (it feels pathetic just typing that out), we did try setting up a few dates. Tried, in this case, is the operative word. We set up ONE date in the end, and she did show up.
Yeah, we wish she hadn’t. She looked nothing like her profile, had the world’s most annoying laugh, and kept scratching herself in weird places in public. The person who was on a date with her claimed he was going to the bathroom and never came back.
Never again on HornyMatches.com. Never again.
Why It’s Not Worth Signing Up For: Is HornyMatches.com a Scam?
There are REALLY only a few things a good hookup site should do. We think it should:
Keep its users safe
Hook users up with other users
Have an ok site that doesn’t suck balls
????? That’s it, really.
We don’t think we’re asking a lot from most sites. You’d think they’d want to do those things on their own anyway, but as usual with anyone in the world, you’d be disappointed. We usually wind up disappointed in the world, these days.
This site failed at pretty much every part of that list. It was obviously home to phishers (we got more spam mail and obvious scams at those email addresses than any others), didn’t get us laid once, and all in all, sucked balls (as we SPECIFICALLY asked it not to).
HornyMatches.com Review: Should You Try HornyMatches.com For Hooking Up?
HornyMatches.com will not get you laid. What else do you need to know? This is a dumb site run by people who don’t know what they’re doing, and it can be very dangerous if you wind up getting scammed or getting a virus because it’s set up so badly.
Protect yourself and go to a much better site. We recommend SocialSex if you really want to hook up fast. If you want to use more than one site at the same time (check out our guide to using more than one site at the same time and getting laid twice as much), try out both SocialSex and Xpress.com, our number one pick and number two pick for hookup sites. And stay the hell AWAY from HornyMatches.com.
