Real Sex Dates is part of a large network of adult personals sites. Like many larger sex dating sites, it combines typical online dating options with special adult features geared to inspire one to enjoy sexual pleasure whether it happens in the flesh or only on one's screen. Limited free access is given without cost and at least in my case I wasn't inundated with spam trying to get me to upgrade.
Still, judging from the number of negative comments from some our surfers, some folks feel as if they've been misled beyond the mere exaggerations some people might make when filling out an online profile. You see other than having limited access to sending "flirts" on RealSexDates you can't communicate in any other direct way with members before you pay. You can even read, let alone reply to, email you receive.
Some users have clearly felt deceived by the emails that they've received and then had to upgrade to read and answer. It's a common enough complaint though in the online dating world and whether you feel the site itself is spamming you or a webcam model is independently trying to drum up business, you need to use common sense before spending (and potentially wasting) your money.
You can do free local searches using U.S. zip codes, so that's probably the best way to judge whether there's much activity in your neck of the woods. If you find profiles that seem too good to be true as a rule of thumb they're probably not worth your time regardless of who's behind the ruse. Unfortunately for those from Canada, the U.K. and other countries, your search results will be nationwide.
If you upgrade, the advanced search options allow people based on the information provided in all the optional subsections of their descriptions including sexual likes, physical details and more precise personality traits or simply a member's profile name. It still doesn't help out those from outside the U.S. better results.
Paid members receive unlimited access to sending and receiving emails, ecards and flirts. A quick post method lets you add a comment at the bottom of any profile you peruse. Premium memberships also come with several additional, real-time contact options including live text and video chats.
Do I think that you could make a real connection through this site? I always think that if you're really savvy and know how to weed out the fake profiles from the real ones that you might stand the chance of actually meeting someone. However, that's an awful lot of work in the case of this site. In the end, Real Sex Dates requires you pay to play and there's no guarantee that gamble will pay off.
* Please include a pro and a con about the site. Balance is essential in making a comment worthwhile. Scores without comments will be deleted.
* Watch out for ratings of zero and 100. In our opinion, there is no such thing as a site that is absolutely perfect or completely worthless.
