Let’s get this out of the way: we really struggled with moving SwingLifeStyle.com to the negative list. We actually had a really good time on this site; the design is great (although it looks kind of tacky), and the matching system was pretty good for what we wanted.
There are also a lot of couples on this website, although not nearly as many as on our favorite swinging website, SwingerProfiles.com. The amount of responses we got also wasn’t as good, but it wasn’t terrible.
SwingLifeStyle.com does have a pretty big problem with customer support, in that there basically isn’t any.
Another thing we weren’t too fond of on SwingLifeStyle.com is that there are a hell of a lot of couples, and a hell of a lot of single guys…but very few single women.
Now, for us, that wasn’t a big problem, since all of the members of this group love hooking up with couples the most (if you’re curious about us, we’re two couples, two single guys, and one single woman—you can read our bios on the About Us page). However, we can’t in good conscience recommend a site that is so heavily biased against one big portion of the swing population. Not that this is the fault of SwingLifeStyle.com, but it’s possible that they aren’t marketing aggressively enough to that portion of the community.
Basically, this is a decently serviceable site, but it’s not up to the par that we’ve come to expect from the online swinging community after good experiences with the sites on our Top 5 list of best swinging sites. It’s not a bad site by any means, but it does have a lot of problems that we think could be easily avoided, and aren’t.
Our Results Using SwingLifeStyle.com For Swinger Dating
If we had gotten more responses and dates out of this site, we’d probably have been willing to overlook the customer service issue. As it was, of the 300 emails we sent out over three months, we only got 61 back, just over 20%. Honestly, that isn’t a terrible percentage for a dating website, it’s just not nearly as good as we’ve gotten used to over the several months that we’ve been using swinging websites.
We set up dates with only four of the couples who had messaged us back, which is a shame. We actually liked several of the ones we were messaging with, but there were scheduling conflicts, distance conflicts, and some miscommunications that meant we couldn’t really follow through.
We only wound up meeting one couple out of the whole site, but they were fantastic. We had a great date, and closed the deal at the end. However, one couple in three months worth of looking is not a great percentage by our reckoning!
Is SwingLifeStyle.com Is Worth It – Or Is SwingLifeStyle.com a Scam?
We’re pretty sure SwingLifeStyle.com is a lemon. You know the kind.
This site is like a nice, serviceable used car that you find on the lot. It runs great, gets pretty decent mileage, and even if it isn’t as flashy as the models your friends are driving, you have no complaints.
Then, one day the engine stops turning on. Since that’s kind of an important feature, you contact the dealer, who claims to have never spoken to you before in his life. Not only that, every mechanic in the city has mysteriously gone on vacation.
That’s what it’s like on SwingLifeStyle.com when you try to contact customer support. They’re absolutely unreachable. You’d have a better chance of saying “Customer support, customer support, customer support” into a mirror three times at midnight than by sending a contact message.
For all of that, we wouldn’t say that SwingLifeStyle.com is a scam. They need a lot more people working in the back end, but by and large the site functioned pretty well, when it was functioning. We did have a lot of downtime where the site was unusable, which really did color our opinion of whether or not it was a good choice.
If a site isn’t properly maintained, that speaks to us of bigger problems with the site at large. There’s also the fact that this could have something to do with how many members were usually online.
If you signed on and the site was broken, would you come back?
We’re willing to bet the answer to that is “no.” It’s pretty much our answer, too. This is a decent site, but a bit too broken for our tastes. If it could be cleaned up, tidied up, and made a bit more presentable, and if customer service would ever give us the time of day, we’d definitely be willing to give it one more shot…but not until then.
SwingLifeStyle.com Review: Should You Use SwingLifeStyle.com For Swingers Dating?
SwingLifeStyle.com is a middle-of-the-road website. It’s neither very good nor very bad. Honestly, if SwingLifeStyle.com could just improve on a few details, it wouldn’t be too difficult to move up to a place on our Top 5 List.
As it is, this site isn’t as good as we wanted it to be, and we did want SwingLifeStyle.com to be a good website.
If you have to choose, don’t choose SwingLifeStyle.com. Go with SwingerProfiles.com instead and save the headache.
