Online dating has come a long way since Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan fell in love in the cheesy 90s romantic comedy, “You’ve Got Mail”, even if it doesn't look like it in our FreeLifeTimeFuckBook review. Now we have complex algorithms to match people with each other. We have instant chatting applications. We can swipe right, or left. In fact, there are so many different ways to cruise, chat, browse, and meet up that it can be hard to know where to start. That’s why we have made this series of reviews.
We put a lot of time and effort into doing the dirty work of creating an account and seeing how different dating sites work for our annual review and rankings of the best hookup sites around. That way, you don’t have to. We will stumble through the terrible pop-up windows and NSFW advertisements so that we can warn you about the scam sites. Don’t worry, you can thank us later. For now, read on to learn all about FreeLifeTimeFuckBook.com.
How can we not start with the name on this one? It’s too glaringly weird and provocative to ignore. First of all, there are five words in the website title. Free. Life. Time. F***. Book. Taken on their own, each one of these words can mean many different things. But they don’t really work so well together. F**** and Book. That’s not a book I don’t want to read. And anything that claims it’s Free for my whole Lifetime is suspect. Together, these words mean only one thing: sleaze.
That’s not a book I don’t want to read. And anything that claims it’s Free for my whole Lifetime is suspect. Together, these words mean only one thing: sleaze.
But still, they say you can’t judge a book by its cover, even if it is a F*** Book. So, I looked a little bit deeper into the site to see if I could find out what it’s all about.
Now, we are going to help you out here and save some time. You can skip the rest of this review and use your time more wisely on our list of the absolute best hookup apps and sites. These are the sites that can actually get you laid.
If you are still reading our review and have not clicked away you must not be getting the message yet. This site is not worth your time. If you want a legitimate site that will actually deliver on its promise to help you find a hookup you need to be using Adult FriendFinder.
There are tons of scammy sites out there but Adult FriendFinder and Tinder stand apart as the only two legitimate options these days. This site has been around since 2006 and has a giant number of users (over 90,000,000 worldwide). No other site really compares and we would know since we test, rate, and review them all in our annual hookup app review.
It's true that Tinder is also a great option but if you are not a super good looking guy it can be really tough. The best looking guys get almost all of the attention leaving even decent looking guys out of luck. Adult FriendFinder does a much better job of helping more typical guys and girls find someone to have a little fun with.
I guess the name would imply that this site is full of adult content. But, I mean, it is really full of adult content. When I first navigated to the site I was totally distracted by a video of a woman in a bathing suit rolling around on a bed that was projected on the background of the site. And that was just the beginning.
On the next page as I tried to fill out my personal information for a profile, there was a very NSFW video playing in the background. I cannot in good conscious describe what was happening in the video to you, but just take a wild guess. In short, this site is not the shy type. It’s more like the weird girl who distracts the class with inappropriate outbursts.
The layout of FreeLifeTimeFuckBook.com is perhaps even less attractive than its name. The main logo says F***Book in huge, puke-green lettering. That same color is used all over the site, on the menu bars and the rims of the chat windows. There is a ton of strange, blank white space on the edges of the site, and then a few areas of crammed activity. The profiles are set up in the middle of the page like a traffic jam of NSFW pics.
You can’t always tell the quality of a site from its layout. But, in this case, I think it’s safe to say that they aren’t trying to look cute, pretty, or romantic here. They are trying for raunchy and gross. Those are not the attributes of a dating site.
One way to spot junk dating sites that we have found when putting together our ranking of the best sites to meet single women is to see if they are affiliated with other junk sites. And one of the first things I noticed about FreeLifeTimeFuckBook was that it looked exactly like another site I had reviewed called Free2Cheat (you can read my review on that site here). In fact, when I tried to make a new account it recognized my login information from this other site. This means that they are not only operated by the same people, but they draw from the same basic servers, and use the same dirty tricks.
Once I was logged in, I even noticed that some of the girls on this site were the same as the other site. And they had the same garish yellow advertisements for upgrades.
When I saw that there were some of the same accounts as I saw on other sites, I decided to check into them more deeply. So, I did a reverse Google search on some of their profile pics. I got a ton of hits. This is a huge red flag. If a profile pic is on a bunch of other sites, it usually means that someone took the photo from the web and made a fake profile with it.
I did the same thing with a bunch of other profile pictures and I got similar results. Things were not looking good for this site.
It’s Not Just the Pictures that Are Fake
They go on to explain their “Love Stars” program, which I was familiar with from their sister site Free2Cheat. These are totally fake profiles that are managed by employees or bots. They try to get members to sign up for ‘upgrades’. Oh, yes, the opportunities to upgrade are plentiful.
This FreeLifeTimeFuckBook review has not been pretty, so it probably doesn’t come as a surprise to hear that they are trying to rip you off. As soon as you sign on they hit you with an upgrade page. When you try to message with another profile they tell you that you must upgrade first. They send messages from their fake profiles to try to bait you. Messages like this one:
“KissDontTell69: hey! are you new here?”
“KissDontTell69: are you actually from ________?”
They are tricky like that. They use your actual location to make it feel like you are conversing with a real person. But they just want you to get excited and then buy a membership so that you can message back. That’s when you will discover it’s not so fun to chat with a fake woman. But by then it’s too late.
Another way that scam dating sites try to make money off of you is by taking your information, including your photos and personal descriptions, and using them for advertisements or fake profiles.
When I first set up an account with freelifetimefuckbook.com they said: “Let's start from the ground floor up. By following these easy steps you are guaranteed to get the attention you deserve. Don't skimp here, we want you to have THE HIGHEST POSSIBLE CHANCE OF BEING NOTICED RIGHT AWAY.” They were trying to get me to fill out my profile all the way.
It seems simple. If you fill out a profile then you are more likely to find a match. But what if all the profiles are for entertainment anyways? Why would they want you to fill out your profile so badly, when all of the other profiles are just for fun? It’s because they want to take all of that info and use it themselves, or sell it to someone else. They say as much in the fine print of the user agreement.
If this isn’t a red flag, I don’t know what is: “Specifically you agree and acknowledge that your profile and related information and content may be utilized and displayed on other sites which are owned by related companies or authorized services providers.”
All of the best dating sites have a public presence on social media. They want to put human face on what should be a human service: love and dating. So, the fact that FreeLifeTimeFuckBook doesn’t have a Facebook account should be a warning. In fact, it’s hard to find any information about them, like a user count or a phone number. Remember what your mother always said, don’t get into a stranger’s car.
Some people like trashy romance novels. That’s fine. Sometimes we all need a little bit of gushy, over-the-top romance, even if it is a bit fake. But, this FreeLifeTimeFuckBook review should make it clear that this more than a guilty pleasure site. It’s a guilty pleasure site that is trying to swindle you. Take my advice, don’t even go there!
