You’d think it’s Valentine’s day with all the love in the air when you visit an online dating site such as Valentime.com. But is the love of your life to be found here? And are you safe and in good hands on this dating platform?
As you must know, not everything in life is made equal or with the best of intentions. As a result, you should be wary of international dating services – do your research, check out reputations and reviews, and more before you sign up.
Today, I am diving deep into Valentime, and in this comprehensive review, you’ll learn everything you need to know about the dating site.
Spoiler Alert! If you don’t currently have time to read till the end to know whether or not I recommend Valentime.com, my verdict is no. I blacklist the site for various reasons, and you are better off looking for true love on a reputable dating site.
Reasons Why You Can Trust Krystyna
What Is Valentime.com?
When I look at Valentime.com, a quite famous International dating website, my red flag alert is tingling already. Besides the name, the cover image, and a few other minor points, the site looks exactly like other websites I reviewed not long ago. Related read: Russian & Ukrainian Dating Site Reviews
Cookie-cutter websites tell me the site owners or operating companies don’t care to provide a unique and quality service to its members – you. It’s easiest to change a few things, launch the site, and fool people (or think they do!), and make money.
Back to Valentime.com. It’s an international online dating service where you can connect with women from all over the world; however, most of the ladies registered here are from Eastern Europe (Poland, Belarus, Ukraine, Moldova, and Kazakhstan) and Russia (see also: Meeting Russian Brides: The Ultimate Guide to Russian Dating). Most users are young, between 25 and 44.
Valentime.com hasn’t been around for long since Cellar Door Ltd, based in Gibraltar, was incorporated in 2018. According to the website, Valentime is based in Cyprus.
The dating platform is only web-based, meaning you can only use it via an internet browser like Chrome, Firefox, or Safari on your desktop PC, laptop, or smart device. There is no mobile app – and in today’s online dating and romance market – you have to wonder why not.
How Do I Set Up an Account on Valentime?
Setting up an account on Valentime.com is quite easy (and while it’s easy on reputable dating sites too, this is a key way these services reel you in).
When you visit the homepage of Valentime, you’ll see a pretty lady with glasses checking out her phone and smiling. On the side under the “it’s free to join” heading, you’ll see a sign up form you need to fill out.
Valentime.com requests you fill in:
Then, you need to tick the red box to say you’ve read and understand all the T&Cs. Once you’ve done that, click “Register” in the salmon red box. By clicking “Register,” you also confirm you are at least 18 years old.
How Does Valentime Work?
Valentime.com is a social media platform where you can find the love of your love. Through its search and browse functions, powered with customizable filters, you can find potential love matches who meet your “dream woman” criteria.
The dating service lets you post photos and statuses, and you can also follow other Valentime members.
Like Tinder, you can browse through profiles on the site, and either choose to “Like” or “Skip” them.
Usability: Is the Site Easy to Use?
One of the key ways scam sites try to lure people in is to make the site super easy to use with very basic services on offer. Valentime.com meets all those criteria – it’s easy to navigate so even newbies to the online dating scene can find their way.
How Can I Get a Free Trial at Valentime.com?
Valentime.com doesn’t offer a free trial in the traditional sense of the word. There’s no signing up for a short period for you to access all the premium services at no cost.
The closest thing Valentime offers for a free trial is that you can sign up, create your profile, search and browse, and like profiles for free. Plus, they give you 20 credits for free so you can try out some of the paid-for features on the site.
While 20 credits won’t get you far, it will possibly work in Valentime.com’s favor to get you to buy more credits (which is the purpose of a “free trial”).
Costs & Pricing: Is Valentime Expensive or Cheap?
Valentime.com is quite pricey. There are limited services you can access for free, and to make the most of the experience, you’ll need to buy credits – the online dating platform’s online currency you buy and then spend on various services.
Free services on Valentime.com include:
If you want to access the following services, you’ll need to pay:
You buy credits in bundles, and here’s how much you pay:
Here’s some info about what the services on Valentime costs so you can get an idea of how much money you’ll need:
You may think this doesn’t look so bad … but once you start buying credits and spending them, you’ll realize that even the biggest bundle doesn’t get you far. And especially not if the dating site is rigged to entice you to keep on spending money here.
The ladies entice you into connecting, chatting, sending gifts, and spending more and more. The 20 credits you get for free when you sign up is just the start.
Various payment methods are available on Valentime.com; however, which of these are available to you depends on where you live.
In general, you can buy credits with:
Is Valentime Full of Fake Profiles?
The profiles aren’t very detailed, which makes me immediately see red flags. Wouldn’t profiles be detailed and completely filled in if the members on Valentime.com were serious about finding love?
You essentially just see the profile photo, a public photo gallery, and private photos, the person’s name, age, profile ID, location, height and weight, and uhm … that’s it. There may be a “validated member” badge – but how do you know the profiles are actually validated?
When I browsed through the site, most of the photos looked like they had been edited or Photoshopped. It just looked too good to be true, and then my mantra is always to just stay away.
How to Contact Customer Service at Valentime.com?
If you need to contact Valentime’s customer services team, you can live chat or contact them via email at support [at] valentime.com.
Valentime Customer Reviews on Trustpilot.com and Sitejabber.com
I like to see what members of Valentime.com say about the service on third-party review sites like Trustpilot.com and Sitejabber.com. Of course, any review needs to be taken with some skepticism, but these do generally give you a good indication of whether Valentime is worth signing up for or not.
Valentime on Sitejabber.com
There are 60 reviews for Valentime.com on Sitejabber, and the dating site has a consumer rating of 1.33 star – which says a lot. In the past year, there were no positive reviews.
Only 4 people rated the service with 5 stars, 1 person gave it 3 stars, 2 people gave it 2 stars, and the majority at 53 people gave it 1 star.
The reviews mention how you never get granted a meeting request, how the site seems too good to be true (because it is), and how many of the profiles are on other sites I’ve blacklisted in the past.
Valentime on Trustpilot.com
Valentime.com on Trustpilot doesn’t fare better. It has 15 reviews and a poor rating with 1.9 stars. 93% of people gave Valentime 1 star and 7% gave it 2 stars.
The reviews mention how difficult it is to leave the site, how the company charges money to your card without your consent, and how the women never want to leave the “safety” of Valentime to chat with the men on another platform that’s cost-effective.
Our Valentime Review Verdict
Taking into account all the information I’ve learned about Valentime.com, I have no choice but to blacklist it.
Why? I can’t recommend Valentime because of the hefty prices for the services, poor customer reviews, tons of fake profiles, and quite a number of other red flags.
Your chances of finding a real authentic lady of your dreams are zero, zilch, nada.
