Chances are, if you’ve been in the online swinging scene for a while, you’ll have heard of SwapFinder.com.
After all, it boasts a membership of over 40 million people, and claims to have 100,000 people online at any one time, with an emphasis on the single scene in the USA. By the numbers alone, one would have to assume that there’s one couple on SwapFinder.com for every three couples in America.
However, we’re willing to bet you haven’t been a member lately.
Our in-depth SwapFinder review showed us that there’s more to being a great website for swingers than just having a famous name. This site isn’t nearly as good as it claims to be, and we don’t want you to waste your time where it isn’t necessary.
First of all, the website was so buggy we were stunned. Trying to load SwapFinder.com is a chore. Sometimes it would load, sometimes not. Sometimes it would only load if we tried to get to it through a search engine instead of attempting to type in the address bar.
At first, we thought we were just being stupid about typing or something, but when we got our activation email, the site it took us to was dead.
Get used to seeing the phrase, SwapFinder.com could not be displayed. You’ll see it a lot.
SwapFinder.com might have had a lot of members at one time, but it’s an absolute lie to claim that they’re all there for swinging. When they say they have over 100,000 members online, they’re referring to all the people who are online at SwapFinder.com and at any site that partners with SwapFinder.com, or is under the same parental umbrella. The same goes for their “40 million” profiles online.
From what we’ve seen, most of these profiles are fake if not outright scams. Then again, we’re a little instantly suspicious of anyone that claims to be so big they have more members than the entire state of California.
Another thing that makes us wary of fake profiles is the fact that they claim to have so many members even in tiny towns. Just for kicks, we put in the zip code on one profile of a nearby town of about 300 people. SwapFinder.com turned up 14 couples that were “ready to mingle.”
Wow! That town sure is full of swingers! Discounting kids and unmarried people, that’s well over 18% of the population, all on SwapFinder.com!
Or, you know, they could all be scams. Yeah, that sounds more accurate.
Our Results Using SwapFinder.com For Swinger Dating
We sent out 300 emails on SwapFinder.com to couples we wanted to hook up with. There were a LOT of couples listed in our areas, and we were pretty excited to see how many responses we’d get. After all, our SwapFinder review had shown us that the site has more members than there are people living in Tokyo, London, and Paris combined, so what was there to lose?
Unfortunately, this is all a big fat lie.
We only got a grand total of 21 replies back, out of all 300 messages we sent out. Oh, we got a lot of emails sent to us directly, but the vast majority of those were obviously spam. Shockingly for a site that claimed to have such a huge member base, SwapFinder.com is totally full of fake profiles and inactive profiles that might have been real at some point, but are currently empty of human activity.
21 replies out of 300 is just pathetic. We’d get better response rates going up to random couples on the street and saying, “Hey, wanna have sex right now?” We’d also probably get arrested, but we’d definitely get better results than on SwapFinder.com.
Out of those 21, we did attempt to set up a date with a few, and actually set one up with one single solitary couple. Sadly, they didn’t even make it to the hotel bar.
So our grand total of swaps and meet-ups made through SwapFinder.com is a big fat zero.
Is SwapFinder.com Is Worth It – Or Is SwapFinder.com a Scam?
SwapFinder must put all the money they earn from those constantly-flashing ads into buying fake profiles from other sites, because they’re definitely not putting it into recruiting. It’s not that difficult to get people to sign up for a dating site, we’re pretty sure. But for some reason, there just aren’t many people on this website.
There’s also the fact that the site is buggy as hell. Many times, we had to reset everything because the site crashed and lost our information. That’s a pretty big no-no for a site like SwapFinder.com. If they’re as successful as they claim to be, they should have no problem moving to competent servers.
SwapFinder.com Review: Should You Use SwapFinder.com For Swingers Dating?
SwapFinder.com is a pretty sad attempt to look cool gone terribly wrong. This site would be awesome if it were everything it claims to be. Sadly, it’s just a poor paltry imitation, dressed up as a cool site. Save your time and check out SwingerProfiles.com instead.
