The colorful layout of the front page looks appealing. On EthiopianPersonals.com we are supposed to find Ethiopian men and women for dating. We are also told that we can make connections on here for free. However, dating on EthiopianPersonals.com is a lot harder than they say it is. The only way to really get in touch with other members is with a platinum-membership which costs a lot of money.
We decided to create an account. EthiopianPersonals.com is well-designed and the whole process of signing up is easy and fun to do. Afterwards we can search for Ethiopian singles in our neighborhood. It does not come as a surprise that most members reside in Ethiopia. If you live outside the country, it gets a lot harder to find the right person. Users who have completed their profile can like other profiles and show their interest. Sending messages to other members however necessitates a platinum-membership.
The membership is not cheap
The shortest platinum-membership lasts one month and costs 39.99 USD. This is rather expensive. If you go for a longer duration, you pay less. For six months of platinum-membership, you pay 24.99 USD per month. The platinum-membership is a subscription. It renews automatically all the time if not cancelled. A few users complain about this fact online, but this is not uncommon among regular dating portals.
EthiopianPersonals.com is operated by World Singles LLC. based in Dana Point, USA. The company runs a network that consists of dating portals made for users from various countries and regions. In the past we reviewed AfricanLove.com which works in just the same way. Not every portal on the network is highly active, so it might be difficult to find a date on some of them.
What do other members say?
We always try to find reviews written by other users. It turns out that not all of them are satisfied with EthiopianPersonals.com and the other dating portals run by this operator. Some complain that the platinum-membership did not work for them and the support failed to give assistance. Others were genuinely pleased with EthiopianPersonals.com, and we could not detect any fake profiles, so EthiopianPersonals.com does not seem to be a scam.
