Online dating is fantastic when you’re using a legit site. It allows you to find women you’re attracted to and set up dates without having to leave your house. The only trouble is the number of low quality dating sites out there and the time it takes to test out a new one.
That’s exactly why we like to provide these detailed reviews of some of the more commonly mentioned dating sites. The way we figure, the less time you spend on potentially dodgy sites, the more time you spend on dates!
This article is a Lonely Wife Hookup review. If you haven’t heard of the website before, the name probably gives away the basic premise—find and meet up with married women for casual sex.
When it came to getting this Lonely Wife Hookup review in motion though, it was immediately clear this wouldn’t be necessary. Let’s take a look at exactly why.
The moment I visited this website I knew exactly what to expect. No need to pay for a subscription this time around!
As the great George W. Bush once said, “…fool me once, shame on. . . shame on you. Fool me. . . you can’t get fooled again.” How articulate.
So, while I wasn’t going to hand over credit card info to this company again, I did roll with the rest of the review process. Just to see if there were any additional surprises in store.
Before we go any further, let’s take a look at the key elements that make for a good dating site. In this case, it really sets the tone for everything else.
For context, we’ve included a comparison against the well-known AFF. In case you haven’t used it before, it’s one of the best options in terms of hookup websites and absolutely worth checking out.
Our team rates each site objectively based on many hours of independent research, the features each site offers, and how it compares with other sites. The ratings are the opinion of our editors and their extensive experience.

Clearly Lonely Wife Hookup is not going to be a great option for most guys and my recommendation is to completely avoid it. The reason sites like this can be so dangerous is that they actually work to seem legit.
At least some of the sketchy dating sites I’ve reviewed so far are blatant enough that you aren’t likely to fall for it. In this case though, there’s a degree of plausibility to it. At least until you dig further.
This time around, when I set up my free account I just let it sit. I didn’t add photos or open messages, I just wanted to see what would happen. Sure enough, I received a host of messages and a constant barrage of suggestive chats.
This kind of thing just doesn’t happen on a legit site. Women just aren’t waiting to barrage random men with messages like that.
So if you’re looking for lonely women in your area that aren’t necessarily married but are looking to get laid, use AFF instead. The fact that AFF is a legit site with a decent track record is enough to lure you away from the scam that is LonelyWifeHookup.
On LonelyWifeHookup, you never know what will happen to your credit card details if you sign up for a membership. On AFF, however, you can actually meet real people and have a good time.
We do try our best to find something good about every site we review. But to be honest, it was tough looking for anything positive about LonelyWifeHookup in this review.
If nothing else, the profiles on this website make for an amusing read. It’s like the guys behind this site are a couple of 15-year-olds that have seen one too many over the top porn ads and think that’s how women work.
Take this profile from the totally real ‘livindfantasy’ for example. “He just can’t cos he’s dick doesn’t get hard anymore.” Spoken like a typical 49-year-old woman with a 4-year degree, right?
All in all, the profiles are fake, the photos are probably stolen and the bio text is hilarious. No actual women to see here, folks.
Although a little dated, the overall design of the site is probably the biggest thing Lonely Wife Hookup has going for it.
The navigation is simple and easy to use and the site is generally pretty intuitive. The constant onslaught of semi-naked women is a little over the top, but there are worse things on the internet, right?
Looking at design alone, I’d say it’s almost on par with some of the top dating sites. Clearly this isn’t enough to change my recommendation but credit where it’s due.
The reason sketchy sites like this spam you with chat popups and messages is because they’re a paid feature. They want you to feel as though sticking with a free account is costing you a lot of hookups with attractive women. Look at just how many messages I received after a few days with a blank account.
As mentioned above, I wasn’t going to pay for this site again. What I can tell you from my experience with a paid account on AffairAlert is that it’s all fake.
I tried having legitimate conversations just to see what would happen. I even tried to escalate with several ‘women’ on that site and got the same response every time:
My guess is they want to stretch out the conversation and string me along. Maybe if they can do it long enough I’ll be fooled into paying for another month of the subscription.
I found this to be the case with both the chat popups and messages on AffairAlert and this site will be no different. All communication was just as poorly written as the bio text in each profile.
On these sites, not a whole lot. You can set up a complete profile and look at women on the site and that’s about it. Basically a free account just affords you the privilege of being continually spammed into paying for an account.
You can’t read any of the messages in your inbox without paying, nor can you reply to a chat request. All you can do is see the notifications and look at the amusing profiles.
In fairness, even with a paid account, you aren’t going to achieve a whole lot more.
About the only way this site differs from AffairAlert and BlackCrush is the lack of ads. While the other two sites had an array of porn ads, I haven’t seen a single one on here.
There is a chance I was only seeing the ads once I paid for a subscription previously. I say this because the location of the porn ads on these other sites currently has ads for their VIP membership.
The only other thing I see advertised on here are their “free hardcore porn ads” (free after you pay of course. . .) and cams.
As I noted in my AffairAlert review, the cams section just shows cam girls from an actual cam site. They do not have their own models. This whole tab is fake, just like the rest of the site.
This site is such a helpful resource, it makes sense that we’d talk about the cost as well.
For this ultimate privilege of chatting to bots or some kids — I mean, ‘interested hotties — trying to bait you, the breakdown is below.
The pricing is a little on the confusing side but as with most subscriptions, they want you to commit to a longer sub. They do this by reducing the monthly cost the longer you commit to.
They know you aren’t going to fall for their nonsense for several months in a row. Instead, they really push the idea of you paying $69.90 today.
Usually, this is where I’d talk about the features that are unlocked with a paid subscription. In this case though, there’s really no point. You basically just get to interact with more fake profiles and chat with more bots.
Whether you’re using a free or paid membership, there’s zero chance you’re getting a date from this website.
Last but not least, the frequently asked questions about this site. This should be about everything you need to know but if you have a question I haven’t answered we’d love to hear it!
Lonely Wife Hookup is a questionable dating website. A carbon copy of both AffairAlert and BlackCrush (and undoubtedly more), it’s filled with fake profiles and spam.
Best to stay away from this site completely.
You can create an account by following the wizard from the home page. All you’ll need is an email address and to follow the prompts.
Once you have this set up, just click Member Login and enter your username and password.
While this site is really sketchy there are plenty of legitimate options available. Take a look at our hookup apps review for some of the best dating sites right now.
When you create a free account on this site, you automatically get a free account. Unfortunately, it doesn’t really allow you to do anything but look at profiles.
Even more unfortunate is the fact that even with a paid account you won’t achieve much more. The profiles are all fake.
In sticking with their theme of being a sketchy dating site, there doesn’t seem to be a way to cancel your membership. Having gone through every possible area of the site (including their FAQ) there’s no option to cancel your payments.
Instead, just go ahead and delete your account. I’d suggest keeping an eye on your credit card transactions in the following weeks too.
Thankfully deleting your account is simple. Just follow these steps:
The pricing for this site is put together in a very confusing way. Instead, here’s the simplest way to look at it without their confusing layout and phrasing:
3-day trial: $8.90
1 month: $29.95
3 months: $49.95 ($16.65 per month)
6 months: $69.90 ($11.65 per month)
The reason they make it that much cheaper for 6 months is because they have such a brief opportunity. Very few people will be fooled by this site for more than just a few days. So it’s unlikely anyone will pay two months in a row.
Not at all. While some effort has gone into making this site appear legitimate at first glance, a closer look will tell you otherwise.
The bio text in every profile is amusing at best and the chat responses appear to be semi-intelligible bots.
Lonely Wife Hookup is a sketchy dating site. Just like the dating sites that share the same template and tactics, it’s just a facade aimed at tricking you into paying for a membership.
All mentions of a Lonely Wife Hookup situation that you should avoid are absolutely correct.
Sending messages on this website requires a paid account. While you’ll receive a lot of messages using a free membership, you can’t reply to any.
If you sign up for a VIP membership (not recommended), you can click “Send Mail” from within any profile to message them. Alternatively, you can also click “Start Chat” to begin a chat conversation instead.
You can search for relevant profiles by clicking the search option in the top navigation.
From here you can choose from a bunch of options like distance, age, only profiles with photos and many more.
Note that since all profiles on this site are fake, using these filters is redundant.
