True (True.com) Review
|Ease of Use|
Founded in 2003, True.com is a dating site that caters to singles looking for no-strings-attached dating, The site distinguishes itself from other dating sites by emphasizing safety for online dating. True.com proactively screens all members against criminal databases, and also verifies marital status, to make sure the people you communicate with are who they say they are. Aside from that, True.com has a huge variety of search features to find your best match.
The signup process for True.com is fast and easy. After filling out pretty typical profile questions about yourself (location, appearance, job, marital status) and about who you’re looking for, you can get access to the main site in 5-10 minutes. You can even choose from some auto-generated usernames to speed thing sup.
Once on the main page, you will see that this site really has a ton of functionality. In general, True.com has thrown in the kitchen sink and more when it comes to features, including everything you may have seen from other dating sites. For example, you can fill out several “TRUE” tests to gauge your interests, communication, romance, etc. and help you find matches for you. If you just want to chat with local singles, you can enter live chat rooms with different themes. The names of some of these rooms, like “Flirting Fun” or “Single & Loving it”, hint to the casual, fun nature of this dating site.
True.com has more than enough search options to keep you busy for a while. To get you started, you can try some “Quick search” options, which let you search for people who’ve looked at your profile, or are looking for someone that matches your profile. You can find True.com members who are rated highly by others, who’ve just posted photos, are new to the site, or are online at this moment.
Of course, you also have the standard filtered search features, which let you find members based on things like value, appearance and lifestyle. In my opinion, the number of filters available are just about right; enough to get a fairly personalized search, but not so many that you’ll spend forever fine-tuning a search.
For those looking for match recommendations, you can click on “Interests Matches” or “Personality Matches”. These let you use different matching algorithms, based on what’s important to you in a mate.
True has a diverse userbase of about 5 million singles.
Online dating safety is one of True.com’s main selling points. The sites screens all users for U.S. felony and sexual offense convictions using a large criminal records database, before they can communicate with other singles. True.com will also disallows any married persons from using the site, and will prosecute users who are found to be married. When it comes to making sure the site is safe for its users and that people are who they say they are, True.com really takes it to the next level.
The free account lets you find other singles using the search and match-making tools. To communicate with other members (via either direct chat or the chat rooms), you will need a paid membership. However, you can take advantage of a 3-day free trial to try out all the site features, including video chat, before committing to a subscription.
