At first sight, SinglesAroundMe.com and the corresponding SinglesAroundMe app seem to be a great choice. Apparently, the site is home to millions of members worldwide, and offers the right tools and features to find a matching partner from your area.
To find out if SinglesAroundMe.com can live up to their claims and promises, we create a free account and browse the members’ area. We also study the terms and conditions as well as the privacy policies carefully. Furthermore, we search the internet for user reviews, success stories, complaints, and experiences. Even though we cannot find any hints that SinglesAroundMe.com is a rip-off, we do not think it is the best choice.
The sites’ feature set is okay, but not outstanding in any way. In fact, most tools are standard and can be found on almost every online dating website on the market. The highly advertised “Position-Shift”-Technology, which enables users to shift their public geo-location, is merely a gimmick. It does not improve the overall user experience, nor increase the chances of finding a matching partner.
To unlock the communication features, users must sign up for a paid Gold Membership subscription. These are rather expensive in comparison to similar sites and apps. Furthermore, they renew automatically and must be cancelled to avoid recurring charges. Luckily, cancelling these subscriptions seems easy and we cannot find any hints that a subscription trap scam is to be feared.
Unfortunately, we find many negative reviews about SinglesAroundMe.com on the internet. According to numerous reports by former users, the site’s members’ pool is full of fake profiles, scammers, and spammers. Allegedly, it is rather difficult to find a real person who is genuinely interested in meeting up for a date. Several former users even say that using SinglesAroundMe.com is nothing but a waste of money and time.
