I am an intelligent man now 70 and lonely. Yes I have spent a lot of money on ADate because I subscribed to a site Scanna which ADate took over. ( I lost money in the process as well as all the contacts I had built up and paid to meet) Scanna was an excellent site. Pay one fee to have unlimited contact directly with the lady. I met some very nice genuine women who came all the way to Australia to meet me. With direct contact a man can soon suss out the genuine from the go-getters. Interpretation was available if wanted but mostly unnecessary. No forced payment.
ADate is a business. I must admit a very clever one which cashes in on our most intimate human emotion-love & companionship. A sure seller.
I was amazed to find I could never contact the A date women directly. As well as the unlikelyhood of of 18,19, 20 yo girls professing love to a 70 yo man, all of the women without exception tried to move me onto video chat which is double the price of straight chat. Having been a salesman myself, the motivation for this is obvious -more commission. Of course ADate always make the point they do not pay the women, which flies in the face of reality. There must be some type of payment system, probably directed thru the agencies. As men we are all influenced by a pretty woman so when she presents a bio which does look very genuine, we want to believe it. I found the wording to these bios was often duplicated word for word in those of several women.ADate controls these women very closely, probably through fear of losing the income, which we have to admit would be invaluable to a woman in Russia or mainly Ukraine. The women are just doing a job. I have had a couple of decent admit that fact. Some of them have been on the site for years and if genuine would have found a match. I have kept paying and fooling myself for a long time believing that out of all these women I could find some who are genuine. I believe there are some who are genuine but they get caught up in the Adate web which is misleading, deceptive and dishonest for the sole purpose of making money not helping lonely hearts find love.When you think about it in nonemotional terms, the scam is a no brainer. I saw a report a couple of years ago that the operating company running ADate made a profit of US$130 million so its a very good business though very dishonest. Yes I am sure many of the women who are regulars are just pics of women backed by people in call centres who could be men or women. Some of them seem to be there 24 hours 7/7 as they hit me whenever i log on day or night. i guess they now see me as the typical bunny, which of course i was. If you are observant you can often pick up many discrepancies in the facts presented by the women on the bios such as occupation, which does not corrospend with that given in the woman's blurb. In my early days I was completely taken in by one very beautiful image of a woman who had over time 3 very disparate occupations, masseur, teacher, psychologist. When challenged she of course became indignant (Ha Ha Ha yes would you believe, I was the bad person) She is still there now plying her trade. So yes ADate is a massive con and a very profitable SCAM. I have noticed that those who call to me and to who i respond become regular invitees. I have "fallen" for a couple of them but strangely enough for ladies who profess to be very interested in me they only ever want to talk on chat or videochat but never volunteer to write me a letter unless in response to one of mine. What do you think?
I still reason that some minority of the women are attracted to the site because they would like to meet a partner. I think they can be genuine but only in the written letters NOT the online invitations. However finding that woman takes great care and selectivity and be ready to chop contact as soon as any suspician arises. Watch for age disparity, family ties, occupation, photoshop glamour. Sometimes "virgins" appear on the site who can be genuine but usually if they are attractive to the men and recieve a lot of action, you soon see they reappear in glamorous photo soot costumes, which means they are seduced by the ADate dollars. Forget them. If you find you are continually spending money you cannot afford, get smart and go to your local dating site. You will get much better real results.
YES ANASTASIADATE IS A COMPLETE MONEY MAKING SCAM SO BEWARE
