Our 2021 HornyMatches Review - Total Scam or Legit?

hornymatches home page

We put together a complete review of HornyMatches because we know just how hard it is to find a solid hookup site. There are tons of sites and apps out there these days that claim to be the best and most of them are total garbage. We have put in a ton of time and effort trying out dozens and dozens of sites to find the few that are actually worth using.

We have had some great success using different dating and hookup apps to meet women. We think every guy should use a mix of in-person approaches and online sites to really get the best results possible. However, in order to do that you need to be using sites and apps with proven results.

How we reviewed HornyMatches.com

Over the past month, we’ve been using this site to get the full experience. We can’t really see if a site is worthwhile without using it for several weeks and actually testing it out like we did!

We set up a free profile first just to see what I could do without handing over money. After a couple of days of trying it out (and some spam, already!) we took the risk and handed over some credit card information so we could test it out with a paid membership.

We reached out to 50+ women of various levels of attractiveness in our area and sent them solid first messages. This whole process gave us a full picture of exactly what the site is like as a real user (who isn’t hideous and knows how to talk to women). We spent a lot of time trying to get conversations going and actually meet up with women outside of the site. It also meant putting our credit card on the line so you don’t have to. The things we do for you guys, huh?

So, let’s take a look at what I found using HornyMatches.com.

Our Thorough HornyMatches Review

First, let’s start with a high-level overview. Before I go getting into specifics, I wanted to give you a comparison of the seven most important elements.

Compared to the gold standard of hookup sites Adult FriendFinder (which you can try for free here) HornyMatches doesn’t come out looking great.

Our Recommendation

Would I recommend trying HornyMatches? Absolutely not. Right from the sign-up process, I was starting to get the impression they wouldn’t be playing nice. If you want to save yourself a little time you can skip the rest of this review and just check out Adult FriendFinder instead (especially if you’re over 25).

For example, they claim to be winners of an AVN award for Best Dating Site, yet they don’t say what year. From my research, the closest I could find were nominations for this award, no actual win.

Worse than that, once you create your free account, you’re taken straight to a page to choose what type of paid membership you’d like. There was no option to choose a free one nor an indication that free was an option. It seemed using the website for free wasn’t possible. . . until I went back to the home page.

All I’ve done is sign up so far, and I’ve already seen a false claim and been misled into thinking I had to pay.

Beyond the untrustworthy nature of the site, the “members” aren’t much better. With obvious fake messages within minutes to the blatant spam to watch their live cam shows, it was all bad.

Of the 50 messages I sent, I had one conversation with a real person, and that was it. A 2% success rate isn’t worth risking your credit card. For some guys, this might be a success but for guys who have had great results on other sites and apps this is a waste of time.

Guys who don’t have our skills and experience will be lucky to get a single message (in our opinion).

Positives and negatives

Despite my position on this site, let’s be optimistic, and look at the positives and negatives for HornyMatches.com.

Positives
Negatives
  • Fairly intuitive site design
  • Most fake profiles are easy to spot
  • Setting your search parameters is simple
  • Search results are easy to skim
  • The site is not trustworthy
  • The vast majority of profiles are fake
  • Constant fake messages
  • Home page cluttered with profiles from out of state

The Nitty-Gritty Of Our HornyMatches Review

Profiles, pictures and members

What’s a HornyMatches review without talking about the members, right? After all, without members, there is no site.

Sadly for HornyMatches, the members on here are mostly fake. While some of them are a little more subtle, in most cases they don’t even try to hide it.

hornymatches messagesTake this conversation, for example. I messaged her once and get a response saying only men with paid accounts will get a reply. I then get spammed with more garbage messages.

If it’s not this, it’s profile pics that are just a little too high quality and a little too attractive to be legit.

As for the overall attractiveness of (what appeared to be) legitimate profiles on the site? Unfortunately, even this is quite low. There’s just not a single positive I can offer you in relation to user profiles on this website.

We’ll say it again, use Adult FriendFinder’s free trial instead

Dating and hookups are a numbers game. The more options you have the better results you are going to get at the end of the day, assuming you actually take action and send some messages. When it comes to numbers, Adult FriendFinder can’t be beat with over 60 million active members. Nobody else can touch that.

If you are in your late teens or early twenties you can have success on Tinder as well. If you are pas your college years AFF really takes over. Check out their free trial and see what we are talking about. You are going to do way, way better there than on Horny Matches.

Design on Hornymatches.com

The best word I could use for the design of this website is ‘cluttered’ — a  UX/UI designer’s nightmare.

At first glance on the home page, you’re assaulted with options and suggestive images.

HornyMatches design

  • A band of top profiles under the navigation
  • Search parameter options to find women near you
  • A grid of online members (none of which are likely to be in your state)
  • A “daily spotlight” member profile
  • A Tinder-esque game where you mark profiles as “Hot” or “Nope” in rapid succession
  • A grid of premium live cams
  • A larger grid of trending profiles
  • A section where you can update your profile with a click to say what you’re looking for right now
  • A chat pane down the right-hand side
  • Regular interruptions from new spam chat messages

If you already know what you want on the site, admittedly, it is quite intuitive. Profile settings are readily available by clicking your profile. Chat messages are all in the chat pane and setting search parameters is right in front of you.

Credit where it’s due, I never had to hunt around or Google how to do anything on this site.

Messaging and chatting review for Horny Matches

The interface for chatting with members is very simple and familiar. Of course, the experience of chatting with other members is frustrating since you’re mostly talking to bots.

If you’ve already been chatting with someone, you can click that conversation from the panel on the right. From there, type in the box at the bottom and hit Enter.

If you want to chat to someone new, click on their profile. Then, all you have to do is click Message on the left and you can start a conversation with them. Very simple, yet also a total waste of time.

One thing to note with messages is you do need a paid account to do it. Irritatingly, it’ll let you get to the point where you type a message and hit ‘Send’ before it makes this clear.

As I mentioned above,  of all 50 messages I sent, only one person appears to be legitimate. Of the other 49, they either didn’t reply or spammed me with garbage, automated responses.

What can you do with a free membership?

As is the case with most of these dodgy dating websites, HornyMatches doesn’t let you do much for free. It’s very much a “look but don’t touch” kind of thing.

You can set up your profile, search for members, view their profiles, etc., but nothing more. No chatting, no adding them as a friend, nothing.

I suspect the reason low quality sites do this is that it won’t take much chatting to realize it’s fake. If they give you the chance to chat to members before paying, you’d never hand over your credit card info. That’s certainly true for HornyMatches and exactly why we like to do reviews like this. We just saved you some money and a potentially compromised credit card!

All in all, you cannot find any level of success on this site with a paid membership.

HornyMatches has a lot of sketcy advertisements

Another trademark of a fake or low quality dating website is advertisements. On HornyMatches.com, the ads are mostly in the form of pushing cam models on Fling Live Girls.

They have a “premium live cams” section on the home page showing model profiles. When you click on one of these, you’re redirected to Fling Live Girls.

I also received several messages urging me to watch them live on cam. So, between the home page pushing models and the spam messages, it can be a lot.

Digging a little deeper, it seems Fling Live Girls is either owned by the same company or collaborates closely. At the bottom is a banner with “premium movies of the week”. These take you to a page on HornyMatches.com where you’ll get full BangBros videos. How legitimately they’ve obtained these, I don’t know, but they’re hosted on Fling.com.

Finally, you’ll also find a banner ad promoting the camming site Cam Soda. Apparently, they have no allegiance to just one brand. This banner may rotate occasionally but I’ve always seen the same one.

Pricing

If you choose to sign up for a paid account on HornyMatches.com, you have a few options available.

  1. Two-day trial – $1.14
  2. Seven-day trial – $11.94
  3. One month – $41.94
  4. Six months – $13.98 /month ($83.88)
  5. 12 months$8.00 /month ($96.00)

Since you can’t really do anything on the site, you have no choice but to choose a paid membership. If you insist on trying it yourself, at least you know you can do so for $1.14.

HornyMatches FAQ

To wrap up this HornyMatches review, we’re also going to answer some of your most frequently asked questions. If there’s something I haven’t covered in this FAQ or anywhere else in the review, we’d love to hear from you.

What is HornyMatches.com?

HornyMatches is a low-quality dating website. As the name would suggest, it aims to facilitate dating and casual sex.

Unfortunately, the site is more interested in pushing paid memberships and affiliate links than real human interaction.

How do you log into HornyMatches.com?

Logging into HornyMatches is easy. If you have an account, just click Member Login in the top right corner and enter your login info.

If you don’t have an account yet, the right side of the home page is a very simple form for you to complete. This gives you a HornyMatches.com profile you can use to log in. By default, it’ll be a free account, and if you choose to upgrade later, you can do that from your profile.

What are HornyMatches.com alternatives?

I can’t recommend using HornyMatches. If you’re looking for a legitimate alternative, check out our review of the best hookup apps and websites for 2019.

Just like this review, we did the legwork here to save you the time and frustration!

How do you use HornyMatches.com for free?

If you want to log in and look around the site, all you need to do is create a free profile from the home page.

Beyond looking around though, you’ll need to sign up for one of the paid options. You can’t interact with members in any way until you have a paid membership.

How do you cancel your HornyMatches.com membership?

Cancelling your paid membership with HornyMatches is very simple:

  1. Click your profile photo in the top right corner
  2. Select “Account Settings”
  3. Go to “Manage Membership” on the left
  4. Click “Cancel your membership here”

How do you delete your HornyMatches.com account?

The steps to deactivate your HornyMatches account are very similar:

  1. Click your profile photo in the top right corner
  2. Select “Account Settings”
  3. Click “Deactivate My Account”
  4. Click “Delete Account” at the bottom

How much does HornyMatches.com cost?

HornyMatches offers several pricing options for their paid membership. If you want to try it for yourself, this can be done for as little as $1.14 for their two-day trial.

  1. Two-day trial – $1.14
  2. Seven-day trial$11.94
  3. One month$41.94
  4. Six months$13.98 /month ($83.88)
  5. 12 months$8.00 /month ($96.00)

Is HornyMatches.com legit?

HornyMatches is not a legit dating website, no. It seems to be aimed at pushing people to a paid membership, then getting them over to a camming site.

This can be seen both in their ads and spam chat messages.

Is HornyMatches.com a scam or real?

There’s been some discussion around the HornyMatches scam but I’m not sure this qualifies. While it certainly isn’t a legit website, I’m yet to see any evidence they’re misusing the credit card info or selling our information in any way.

If this changes and the HornyMatches scam rumors are true, we’ll update this article immediately.

How do you send messages on HornyMatches.com?

Sending messages on HornyMatches.com is simple. If you’ve already had a conversation with that person, you can find it in the pane on the right of the home page.

If you want to chat with someone new, just click their profile (from anywhere on the site) and select Messages on the left-hand side.

How do you search on HornyMatches.com?

Searching for nearby users on this site is very easy. Right from the home page, you’ll see a horizontal bar at the top. It allows you to select who you’re looking for (man seeking woman, man seeking couples, etc.), age and location.

Once you’ve adjusted these parameters, click Search. You’ll be taken to a grid of profiles that fit these specifications.
