Okay, my very first review from my list of the “Best Dating Sites” post I made a few months back. I’m starting with GoFishDating.com, so lets see what was good and bad about this free dating site.
Remember, I’m looking at these sites from a person’s point of view that’s looking for dates, a girlfriend and people to hook up with. I mean, it is a dating site, y’know?!
First thing’s first… the signup was a super grueling process and when you’re uploading photos they MAKE YOU name the photo and add a description. Really? This should be an OPTION…
To make things worse, you CANNOT move forward unless you do these. WTF?!
The only thing I think dating sites should MAKE yo do is upload a photo and have some text on your profile.
Nothing’s more annoying and creepy than someone looking at your profile without a picture, but not letting you move forward without a name or description on your photo? Not cool.
Once I was signed in and had my picture and profile done I did an advance search for women 27-32 in my area (Orange County, CA).
I was looking for girls that are 5’0″ to 5’5″ from the weight range of 100lbs to 148lbs to make the range pretty large and nothing popped up…
Not a good sign…
It’s not like I lived in the middle of nowhere… I’m in ORANGE COUNTY, between LA and San Diego. If I moved to a smaller city I’d be worried and I wouldn’t really use the site to look for dates.
Then I did a wider range for women from ages 18-99 with no preference on weight but that had photos on their profile and two GUYS popped up in my area. Not making my GoFishDating Review any more fun than it’s already been, lol.
That search I did was in the advanced search but when I click on the “Basic Search” I was basically doing a basic search…
I wanted to see how many people were online that matched my criteria from 18-99 yrs old, lol, and only six women popped up across the US for me.
Not a good sign, again.
They have a voting system (which most dating sites have or a variation of) so you can look at the opposite sexes photos and vote.
GoFishDating has 7 tabs for this in the order of –
You know the ones that you find on CraigsList Casual Encounters when you’re bored at work?
I was hitting the “No, Thanks” button more than I was any other button while voting…
The ads tab on here has a CraigsList type feel to it… I can see some advantages to THIS part of the site depending on what you’re doing. But than again if the site doesn’t have much traffic you’d be wasting your time.
Over all not that great of a dating site, really. It has a basic look and the colors aren’t that welcoming. Seems like you’d get more spam in your inbox than anything else.
That’s my GoFishDating Review.
Stay up you handsome bastard!
