True.com looked great when we first checked it out. We were hoping it would be one of our top sites. Unfortunately, that didn’t turn out to be the case.
With True.com, we filled out the endless surveys and compatibility tests, got our results, and sent out our five hundred messages. Bear in mind that there are a lot of compatibility tests that are supposed to be really accurate. We didn’t get nearly as many responses as we should if the tests were, in fact, accurate. Unlike sites like Match, we got under sixty responses. And if the tests were so accurate, we should have gotten a lot of dates set up with those sixty responses.
We got none.
True.com: Review Our Results Using The True.com Site
True.com touts its “over 30 million” members and strong, “scientific” compatibility tests. We take exception to any site that claims to have “scientific matching” or the like, but that’s not why we were testing it. We hoped, with those thirty million members, we’d get to set up a few dates. Unfortunately, that didn’t turn out to be the case.
We sent our messages every day until we’d sent five hundred. From that five hundred, all sent to women we’d been matched to, we got fifty-three responses. A little over ten percent isn’t good, but we have had a few that were worse. That still could have gone well; maybe those fifty-three really felt connected. No luck, though; the woman who lasted the longest mentioned seeing her parole officer later that day. When we asked what for, she never replied. So much for scientific compatibility!
True.com Issues: 3 Things True.com Didn’t Do Well
Do you remember those standardized tests from school, the ones where, for three or four hours, you sat in the same spot in the same room and didn’t move, just filled in bubbles or wrote answers the entire time? True.com’s compatibility tests are kind of like that. In order to be matched to the women so we could send our messages, we sat there and felt like we were back in school. It was ridiculous. Unless you really like clicking buttons and have an index finger that never gets sore, we can’t suggest you take the time investment.
You also need to allow pop-ups on True.com. They’re required for using chat rooms and taking the compatibility tests. Most people refuse to allow pop-ups for security and annoyance reasons. But if you want to fully and properly use True.com, you have to remember to allow them, then to disallow them again whenever you’re going to another site. It’s maddening.
True.com must be making a mint. Sure, you sign up for free, but to communicate with anyone, you have to pay. We needed a three-month subscription and an additional month to be able to fully test them, i.e., send messages and get replies. That totaled a hundred and thirty dollars. Compare that to a site like Match; the same subscription would be ninety-five dollars. That’s far more reasonable.
True.com Review: Is True.com Legit & Worth Joining?
We can’t say that True.com is a scam, but paying a hundred and thirty dollars and getting nothing out of it sure doesn’t make them look good. We put a lot of work into our membership, since we figured we’d try to get something out of how much we were paying for it, and there was no return. If you want to save some money and actually get matches that pan out, check out Match or a similar site we rank highly. It’s much more likely to give you people to date, and it’ll save you some money at the same time.
