Real or Fake? attracts new users with a well-designed home page and a promise of many active members. Thus, at a glance, it looks like a great option for anyone looking for a partner for casual dating. However, the truth is much less appealing. This site uses fake profiles to lure new users into purchasing a membership. The existence of fake profiles is clear as soon as you create your profile since you will immediately start getting tons of messages from beautiful women all wanting a hot date as soon as possible. The problem is, the same will happen even if you leave your profile completely empty. The explanation is that the profiles sending these messages are actually run by paid professionals with no intention of actually dating anyone from the site.

Free vs Paid

Localtemptation allows users to register and create their profiles for free. Yet, this means next to nothing, as you won’t be able to use any of the features if you don’t purchase a membership plan. You will not be able to contact anyone through the site as a free member. This defeats the basic purpose of any free dating site. The home page of the site advertises the option of video chat, which is deceiving as well. This option won’t allow you to talk to other members, but lead you to a cam site separate from Localtemptation. Lastly, one of the biggest concerns this site arises is in regards to a recurring payment model. Namely, if you don’t actively seek out membership cancellation, your credit card will be charged after your plan expires.
