Dating Review LavaPlace

"International Dating Service" - Inside

An international dating service, draws many visitors from Russia, United Kingdom, Gibraltar, Sweden, and Kenya. They also have members from the United States, Canada, Australia, Europe, Asia and elsewhere.

Guests can search and browse without registering. There are over 100,000 single men and women, according to Lava Place. You can begin your search immediately since the service is readily available on the front page of the site. You will indicate who you are and your age and gender preference. There are more advanced options to perform a search by state, language, religion, etc .

Many photos that appear on the front page and in the search are of average looking people. Lava Place is not like some sites that have some of the best looking people featured on their front pages. This is also a good indication you might be less likely to connect with fake profiles, although some users have complained about this in the past. Some scammers will open several different accounts using the same photos. When this was mentioned to Lava Place staff, users found the scammers' accounts were deleted, but within 24 hours the scammers would return creating a new account. Some members were so turned off that they left the site. So be cautious when using this site. There are slightly more males then females that visit. Many of the members have attended graduate school. When browsing the site, many are also doing it from home. There is a section where you are able to view the Top 100 profiles. Do take notice that some scammers are still at work posting old photographs and putting the wrong ages. At a glance, one old photo was taken circa 1970s and in the profile the age said 28 years old to date.

You will be able to view people now online and will find many are average looking. What you don't find are nude photos in the profiles since the site is strict about that. There is a good mix of separated, divorced, and single men and women. Some profiles are quite informative while others not so much. Not all features at Lava Place are free. However, what is available at no charge is: profile creation, photo uploading, search, automatch, winking at people, e-mail reading, and instant messaging. Lava Place singles can also connect with one another via Virtual Kisses. When you are ready to buy a membership, you'll get to use premium services. There is a monthly membership fee and you will have to register to find out the latest prices.

One tab that was quite interesting was the "Top Travel Places," there you will find over 200 popular places members have visited and information in the comment sections of places they hope to travel. The top five were: United States, Germany, Italy, United Kingdom, and France as of this writing.

There are privacy settings for those who don't want to be viewed while they are away. Anonymous mailing is also offered. The way this works is your real name is not displayed and a private email account is set up for you during registration. You can also disable Instant Messenger. Plus, if you don't want other members to know you are logged in, there is a setting for that as well.

When it comes to emails, Lava Place says they will not sell their members' email addresses to marketers and they do not monitor private messages like other sites. There were no concerns about this. But if you have a complaint, they will investigate. Members have warned don't agree to share personal email and other information without checking up on your matches. They say, those that have their email addresses on their profiles are typically fraudsters and have wide age preferences. Some former members said they received false stories from Ghana residents and requests to help them financially. They will put an urgency on communicating with them, but since the site is free, one member said, "Why the rush?" Another said, he asked a single for social networking details to verify who she was or to talk with her on Skype, he learned that she was nothing more than a scam artist. So do be careful, like with most dating websites with a fee or not, there will always be deceptive people on the web.
