If there’s one good thing we can say about Swingular.com, it’s that they do place an emphasis on hooking up swinging pairs with other swinging pairs.
However, just because they specialize in something doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re any GOOD at it. You could decide to specialize in playing Liszt more than Chopin, but if you don’t already play the piano you won’t be doing too great either way.
What we’re saying is, we found in our Swingular review that this isn’t a good website of any kind, let alone good for couple on couple swinging.
We weren’t too impressed with profile creation or with the matching algorithm, and honestly, those are two of the most important factors in absolutely any dating website. If even those aren’t right, it’s going to be very difficult to make a case for a website being worth the time.
The one reason we could recommend Swingular.com is because it has a lot of essays and tutorial-type things for those new to swinging. This is not a site for veteran, experienced swingers to go and share stories or meet up with each other.
If you’re very new to swinging and you want to read advice on such topics as “being a swinger and a single man,” “why swinging?” and “rules to swing by,” you might want to stop by and check this site out.
However, we can’t recommend that you take advantage of the paid version of this website. Swingular.com just isn’t as good as other swinging websites, and you’ll probably be disappointed.
Our Results Using Swingular.com For Swinger Dating
When we signed up on Swingular.com, we sent out messages to 300 couples over the course of three months, just to make sure we were doing our research thoroughly. When we sent this amount of emails out on our top pick for a swinger dating site, SwingerProfiles.com, we got back over 200 responses.
On Swingular.com we got back 29.
Needless to say, this was a pretty big disappointment. We didn’t have the highest of hopes for a website with a name like Swingular, but this was still much lower than we’d anticipated.
Our bad luck didn’t stop there, either. Out of those 29, we only actually set up a date with one single couple. That’s a piss-poor showing for anyone, and for us it was downright embarrassing.
To make it worse, when we met in person, we didn’t even like them that much, and wound up going home alone together. We went home with a grand total of zero couples, which is the beauty of spending time on Swingular.com. Contrast this to how we hooked up with more than 20 couples in the same amount of time on SwingerProfiles.com, and you’ll see why this one is on the naughty list and that one’s number one.
Is Swingular.com Is Worth It – Or Is Swingular.com a Scam?
You’re probably wondering, “Is Swingular a scam?”
What you should be wondering is, “How can something that obnoxious and boring be a scam?”
The people who put time and effort into scams generally try to make it as easy to hook people in as possible. We guess in that way, Swingular.com is trying to protect its members….sort of.
The set-up process we went through in our Swingular test was absolutely abysmal. For one thing, it took forever.
First, you have to choose a login name and a password, and put in your email. Fine, that’s about the same as anywhere, we don’t mind having to put in our email address. Then, we had to choose whether to activate as a guest, as a free trial member, or as a regular paid member.
First of all, we chose “Guest” first, and we have to recommend against it. There’s really nothing to do. You might as well stare at a blank wall that says “Login.”
We did try the free trial, and have to recommend against it. If you ARE going to waste your money on Swingular.com, make sure you do it with a real membership. It’s not that expensive, but you do tend to get what you pay for, and Swingular.com is cheap for a reason.
After signing up for real, we were startled and annoyed by how long the sign-up process took. We had to complete six different questionnaires to build a complete profile, even before putting in your personal information. This wasn’t optional, either. There was no option to skip this step, just the requirement that you complete dozens of questions in order to become a full and registered member.
By the time we were signed up, we were already annoyed with the site. The lack of eligible couples didn’t make it any better for us, or change our opinions about the site.
Swingular.com Review: Should You Use Swingular.com For Swingers Dating?
If you want a great site that caters exclusively to swingers, don’t bother with a piece of crap like Swingular. It’s not the worst site we ever tried, but it’s nowhere near a great site like SwingerProfiles.com. Save your money and give this one a pass.
