On the front page of MenInLove.com you can choose your preferred language, which suggests that the platform can be used all over the world. MenInLove.com takes pride in being the premier gay dating community. There are countless gay dating platforms out there, so this is quite a claim. If you live outside the United States, it will become difficult to find a partner. MenInLove.com is clearly not as popular as they make it seem. This platform is in fact a subscription rip-off.
A subscription is necessary
Immediately after the registration, the operator tries to convince you to sign up for a premium-membership. Users without this membership can still use the search function and swipe through different profiles they like or dislike. You can also like a profile, but this function is limited for basic users. Sending a message to other members is something you cannot do for free. This is where every user will finally learn about the different subscriptions on MenInLove.com.
The trial membership is a trap
By signing up for the premium subscription, you automatically unlock the messaging function and access all member photos. This means that you must pay money to initiate a conversation with anyone. To make this less scary the operator introduces a 5-day trial which does not come with a high price. This kind of offer is typical for scam platforms. With a trial-membership you can easily get more people to sign up. This trial membership is a subscription. If you do not cancel it within the five days limit, it renews and becomes a regular premium-membership for more than 40 USD a month.
MenInLove.com is operated by Dating Media Group. The company is based in Plantation, in the United States. They run plenty of dating platforms which supposedly belong to the best. You can hardly distinguish between them, and all of them are based on a subscription trap.
