One of the niches that has risen from the popularity of online dating is mail order brides. Several sites offer beautiful women, from certain countries, and charge you to interact with them. The mail order bride site I checked out this time was CharmDate.com. This site claims to offer a connection to gorgeous Russian and Ukrainian women who are looking to hook up with foreign men. I checked it out for myself to see what it was all about. It showed promise at first, but I was ultimately disappointed with what I found. Read the full review below and you will see all the details of why this site is not as effective as it says it is and it’s pretty expensive to find out.

CharmDate.com Really Pushes the Envelope

You can visit the site or get the app for Android. It is available in English, German, and French. You have the choice to log in quickly with your Facebook account, but I would not link any site to my social media unless I was absolutely sure I could trust it. I could not make that determination yet, so I signed in the old-fashioned way by entering my full name, birth date, nationality, e-mail address, and password. You are then asked to answer 7 questions so they can locate girls with common interests. They ask you stuff like whether weight matters to you, if you’re a passionate kisser, if you have a secret, and more. Once you answer the questions, you are shown a series of women that match the answers that you gave.

Charm DateThe ladies are displayed in a gallery. Each profile pic has their age, height, weight, country, and a button to click if you want to chat with them. Note: Their weight is in kilograms and their height is in centimeters so you might need to look up the conversion rate. The profiles can be easily sorted by age range and ladies with video. A decent search engine is available on the left side. I thought it had a good advanced search option. This opens many more search criteria like zodiac sign, height and weight range, education, profession, religion, marital status, and children. I looked at the caliber of ladies in the gallery and I wondered if there was even any need to search. Every single woman was as gorgeous as a model and their pictures look professional. I looked at this as kind of a bad thing because it is not believable. I believe they hire models to pose for pictures and use the pictures to lure men in to pay for the service.

You pay to use the site with something called Qpid Credits. The goal of these ladies, if they are even real ladies, is to get as many of these credits from you as possible. I had my doubts that the ladies were real when I received chat request before I uploaded a photo. I never seen anything that told me I could trust this site enough to spend a lot of money on credits. Pretty much everything you do is going to cost you credits. When I began receiving chat requests from stunning Ukrainian women the moment I signed in, I noticed that chats are .6 credits per minute.

I went to the page to buy credits and I was shocked with what I found. It cost even more than I expected. The 2-credit package is $9.99 and comes with a 3-month premium membership. The other packages come with 6-month membership and they are 3 credits for $21.00, 8 credits for $52.00, and 16 credits for $96.00. Phone calls are 1 credit per minute, and videos cost 2 credits to view. Cupid Dates where you schedule a face to face meeting are $139 and include 1.5 hours of translation services. After checking out CharmDate.com thoroughly, I sincerely doubt that you will ever end up going on a Cupid Date and you will spend a lot of money either way.

To try out a site we can totally vouch for, just peruse this list and you’ll be on your way to flings.
