This AmateurMatch review will reveal whether this website can legitimately allow you to explore your sexual fantasies with gorgeous women online. We spent a LOT of time actually using it and gave it a fair shot to work.
That’s the promise this website makes, but we know there are a lot of hookup websites that don’t live up to their promises. Many of them are scam businesses that lure guys in with an impressive-looking free account, only to criminally underdeliver once they splash out on a paid membership.
That’s why I like to provide these detailed reviews of the lesser-known hookup websites for you. The last thing I want is for you to waste your money on a scam hookup website.
With that said, let’s take a look at Amateurmatch.com. Can you really expect to chat and meet up with tons of horny babes, or will I be unraveling an Amateur Match scam?
Let’s dive in and find out.
For those of you who don’t care to dive deep into the inner workings of AmateurMatch.com, here is a basic summary of the website.

Due to my experience of testing dating websites, I can confidently warn you to stay away from a paid Amateur Match account if you’re hoping to actually meet a woman online. There are much better sites and apps for finding casual flings.
Within a few minutes of signing up to AmateurMatch, I received a series of direct messages and buddy requests despite having a completely blank account.
Here are examples of the various messages that popped up moments after I created an account:
Just to make it clear, my profile was blank at this point. There were several more similar messages in my inbox too.
This makes it clear that there’s something fishy going on.
New members are given 125 credits with a free account, but it costs 25 credits each time you want to send an instant message (IM). That means you’ll get to send five IMs in total with a free account.
After that, you have to sign up for a paid account to message or reply to anyone. You’ll also have to pay to accept buddy requests or view live webcam streams.
The women in the profiles I browsed appear reasonably attractive. But judging by the messages I received, there’s no guarantee any of them are real.
The grammar, style and forwardness of all the messages is a giveaway. A bot sent them.
If you really love watching women perform on a webcam, you might actually enjoy a paid Amateur Match membership. You’ll need one for a worthwhile viewing experience, for sure.
Without a paid membership, you’ll only be able to view each stream for a few seconds and you won’t be able to chat live. If you become a paid member, you’ll be able to watch and chat with as many cam girls as you like.
This is arguably the best feature of the entire website, although it appears to be provided by a third-party service, Camverse. There are hundreds of cam girls online at any time.
If you don’t hook up in your first three months on Amateur Match, you’ll get your next three months of membership for free.
That sounds good on paper, but I’m confused about how they’d even begin to track this.
It sounds like nothing more than a shady marketing trick to convince you into buying a more expensive three-month package over a one-month deal.
Despite our suspicions about AmateurMatch offering a low-quality paid subscription, we bought one just to make sure.
However, soon after charging our credit card, it canceled our account. We received no notification until we contacted customer service, and even then we were offered no explanation. They didn’t issue a refund either.
This is common with several other low-quality online hook-up websites.
AmateurMatch attempts to hook you in with a free account, only to give you minimal access to its services. You can view webcams for a few seconds and send a grand total of five messages! On top of that, this is meant to entice you to shell out money for a paid account only to mysteriously cancel your account the minute you give out your credit card details.
As mentioned above, there is no intelligent reason to spend your money with Amateur Match instead of a highly-regarded hookup website like Adult FriendFinder.
Not only does Adult FriendFinder have a huge user base across the globe, but a huge percentage of the women on this website are actually keen to meet up and get down to business. Instead of wasting time messaging bots and jerking off over a woman’s webcam videos, you could be messaging real women in your area who are looking to hook up.
To sweeten the deal even further, Adult FriendFinder is even offering a free trial. It really is a no-brainer. What have you got to lose?
Every site we try out has its own set of pros and cons. However, in the case of AmateurMatch, we had to look really hard for some serious pros.
Once you create an AmateurMatch account, you’ll be asked to write a minimum of 20 words about yourself and another 20 about who you’re looking for.
You can upload multiple photos to your profile if you wish. Interestingly, it’s possible to see who other members have accepted buddy requests from. We’re not sure why anyone would want to see a list of all the other guys chasing their love interest, but it’s possible nonetheless.
The women in these profiles are attractive enough and most of them look like they were written by a real person. Still, it’s almost certain that there aren’t many real women behind them.
Although it’s not the most modern website, it’s intuitive enough to use.
The first thing you’ll notice about the website’s design is that it’s flooded with explicit adverts for other porn websites. Still, it’s useful that the main dashboard is packed with a huge selection of women who are online right now. You might also notice that the photos have the users’ email addresses. No idea if those are legit, but I doubt it.
There are three ways to message a woman on this website.
With a free membership, you’re given enough credits to send five IMs in total. Emails and live webcam chats are only available to paid members.
You’ll be flooded with tons of IMs within seconds of signing up to the website. This is to bait you into using up your credits and purchasing a paid membership, so you can continue the conversations. Don’t be so silly. They’re not real women.
The cam girls are real, but there’s little chance of them being based near you or interested in meeting guys from this website.
Not a lot. You can create a profile and browse other profiles. You’ll be able to send five IMs.
You’ll also be able to read the spammy messages that inevitably make their way into your inbox.
You’ll be able to watch live cam streams for about 10 seconds (with no live chat) before it cuts off and you’re prompted to purchase a paid membership.
If you’re really desperate to watch these women for free, you can endlessly refresh the page.
As with almost every online dating service, the only reason a free membership exists is to tempt you into a paid membership. Sadly, in the case of Amateur Match, the paid membership is also likely to frustrate you if you’re looking to actually meet someone. You’ll be able to enjoy the paid membership features only if you act fast because AmateurMatch will most likely instantly cancel your account.
Every page of the Amateur Match website is flooded with pornographic advertisements (as you can see from almost all the photos above). Needless to say, it’s not a great idea to be browsing this website at work.
There are four paid membership plans:
It’s not clear what the limits are on the 3-day membership, but the other plans will score you unlimited messaging, including live cam streams.
Remember that the website offers you three months for free if you don’t hook up in the first three months.
Although I wouldn’t recommend purchasing any of these membership plans, you definitely shouldn’t go for the gold. It’ll be cheaper to buy the silver plan, then claim your free three months when you inevitably end up meeting no one. That is before your account gets mysteriously flagged.
Click the “Have An Account?” button on the top right of the home page. You’ll then be prompted to enter your username and password.
You can search the Amateur Match user base by clicking “Find Members” in the main navigation. This will activate a dropdown menu with the options of “Member Search” “Newest Members,” “Hottest Members” or “View Galleries.”
Click on a member’s profile, then click either “Send Mail” or “IM.” The Send Mail option is only available to paid members. You can only IM members who are currently online.

Click your username in the top right-hand corner of the screen, then navigate to “Account Settings.” Now, find the “My Subscriptions” tab. Here, you’ll see an option to cancel your paid membership.
Click your username in the top right-hand corner of the screen, then navigate to Help/FAQ. Type “cancel” into the search bar and a link to delete your free account will appear.
There are four paid membership plans:
It seems to be a legitimate site for chatting with cam girls. However, these spammy messages I received suggest there’s little chance of finding a real woman who is interested in meeting you on this website.
It’s difficult to go as far as calling this website a “scam.” However, the automated messages that new members receive are very deceptive and a paid membership will disappoint anyone hoping to meet a real woman.
