Real or Fake? advertises itself as the perfect dating site for introverts. It promises to make dating more sociable through organized nights out where the site‘s singles can mingle. Additionally, visitors get a sneak peek into the site‘s user base as some profile photos are displayed on the home page. All of this falls apart when you actually create your profile and realize the site‘s only use is to make new members give it money. The presence of fake chat operators is evident from user reviews. More importantly, the site is a part of a network of over three thousand similar dating sites that share a common user base. That is to say, your profile will be displayed on each of these sites as a member, giving them more credibility even though you don‘t know about them. To sum it up, Urbansocial is not a real dating site. If you are looking for a site that will enable you to meet someone and take them on a date, you should keep searching.

Free vs Paid

As many fake dating sites do, Urbansocial offers free registration. After that step, you will automatically become a free member, which will enable you to use the site‘s more basic features, like sending winks to other users and browsing them by location. Yet, you will not be able to find company or romance on the site for free, as you won‘t have the option of messaging other users if you aren‘t a paying member. If you do decide to give the site money, you will be able to send emails and instant messages, read and write dating diaries, which is an interesting feature, as well as see the people who have visited your profile and add multiple photos. All in all, we believe this is a pretty standard package, which you can find on many real dating sites, with the difference of actually being able to find a date. The safety and privacy concerns are not small when it comes to this site, as it shares your profile with users of 3000 more dating sites.
