I read people's comments on our reviews as much as possible. Any feedback is valuable, although often the negative says more than the positive does. It would be ridiculous as a critic not to accept criticism. I will try my best to respond with a mix of agreement and advice when it comes to our adult personals section.

One complaint many have about sex dating websites is faked profiles and artificial interest shown to free members to encourage paid upgrades. It is, unfortunately, a common practice of questionable merit to consumers. It attempts to compensate for two fundamental issues with online dating (for love or hookups), the majority of websites have three times as many male members as female while free members seldom complete profile details or post photos.

The same unwritten rules apply in cyberspace as they do offline. If you went to a party that was such a sausage fest as many dating sites are, you'd know that the chicks rule the roost when hens outnumber roosters. Realistically, if a guy doesn't make the first move, provides no information or an image on his profile, nothing is going to happen except possibly the computer generated emails and false flirting notifications.

However, tricking the idle into acting doesn't automatically mean that the already active haven't seen action. Testing the sites, I took the time to fill out details, post photos and actively participate. I can attest that some so-called "fake" sites according to surfers' comments generated real connections for me. That doesn't mean that I don't agree or believe that the other users didn't receive false incentives seducing them to join, it simply means that among the "fakes" were some real profiles too.

As Pat Benatar sang, "Love is a battleground" (Lust is a war?) so our adult dating site reviews arm with facts as well as council from fellow soldiers and civilians. Both should help develop a common sense plan of attack rather than lead us to surrendering half-cocked.
