Real or Fake? is not a real dating site. This is true because the vast majority of female profiles is run by paid operators, while many male profiles are real. The purpose of the site is paid explicit chat. You will be bombarded with messages even before you upload a picture or put in any information about yourself. The fake profiles use photos stolen from social media and adult sites. If you are looking for a dating site that enables you to actually go on a date, MyDates is not the site for you. There is a MyDates mobile app with the same features and characteristics. The site acknowledges the existence of fake profiles in the Terms of Service.

Free vs Paid

MyDates advertises free registration, and delivers. However, the vast majority of features, including sending messages to other users is behind a paywall. As sending messages has to be paid for, the operators will talk to you and drag the conversation on to make you buy even more coins. When it comes to meeting in real life, there is basically no chance to go on a date with someone you have met through MyDates. It seems like many profiles are operated by the same person, as many female users forget what they’ve been talking about with you even if you contact them on the same day.
