I am an outgoing individual who loves meeting new people. So when I heard of Stranger Meet Up dating site from a couple of my friends, I decided to try.
What was most appealing is that the service was free, and I did not need to spend hundreds of dollars annually to connect with people. However, when I signed up for the service, navigating through the site was challenging, partly because of the tons of pop-ups and third-party advertisements on the site. When I used the chat-with-strangers feature, all I got were generic responses that were clearly from fake profiles. Also, in public chatrooms, there were a significant number of fake profiles.
The site has advertisements that work against improving the website’s user experience. What’s more, the chatrooms are only full of horny men looking for casual sex. As such, any effort put into building long-term friendships is futile.
Additionally, the many computer-generated responses in the chatrooms make the site unreliable. StrangerMeetUp is a great concept but fails to deliver its promises. My overall experience was horrible, and I would rarely recommend it to people looking to make meaningful connections.
