I signed up to I found a woman there and we contacted over 3 months. then this company blocked my access and told that the only possibility to get access is to pay $1000. I don’t like this extortion. I think they should be punished.

    Big scam site. They use pictures of hot models to get you into the site and into relationships and you are never writing to the girls you think is on the other side. The models and the ones answering your messages are not the same. When you try to go there, they will give you excuses why you can't meet with the girl you were supposed to visit there. Yes, the owners should burn in hell for their practices!

    This site is managed by criminals that sell love now via internet. Prostitution and pornography is the second biggest revenue of criminals after drug sales and this site is a part of the network. Usually ladies start to express enormous love after second or third letter and then start to send 2-3 letters per day. You have to pay for them and then, during cupid phone conversation with one of the ladies I found out that she did not actually write me all those letters, they were written by agency employees to fraud me on money

    I agree. It appears that professional dating agents correspond with you for commission on credit purchases.

    Watch out for the following profiles:
    Kamila from Luhansk - Profile ID: C840921 - stole pictures of Aliona Esipova - Russian model
    Milena from Luhansk - Profile ID: C862393 - stole pictures of Ksenia Shishmaryova – Russian model
    Tatiana from Poltava - Profile ID: C419917 - stole pictures of Yulia Saparniazova – Russian model
    Anzhelika from Luhansk - Profile ID: C594353 - stole pictures of Yana Dubnik – Vice Miss of Russia 2011

    I can't imagine with all the information on the web why anyone would go to this place. It is obviously run by the Russian mob, the girls are not real or if they are they have no intentions of a relationship. One of the best blogs I've read on this subject is from a Ukrainian girl. Her name is Krystyna and do a search on Google Krystyna Ukrainian dating blog. She reviews all the websites and CHARMINGDATE.COM comes in as probably THE BIGGEST SCAM in Ukraine according to reviews. You wouldn't believe what they have done to people. Heartbreaking stories, absolutely heart-breaking. They will burn in hell for what they do and their day will come- TRUST ME.

    I came to just by incident. One of my friends told me of the beautiful, intelligent and lovely women of I gave the site a try and to my surprise the women are just as lovely as my friend had said, most with great personalities, funny, gorgeous and smart. It was not long before I met one who completely stole my heart. I can’t believe I fell in love on a dating site, and all I can say is is not scam.

    I've been on for about two years and a half and I must say that it is a very legitimate dating site. . First of all I just want to chat with some beautiful Russian girls after my wife died. The girls are really soft and nice. I am 55 years old and I always feel lonely for my children are working far away from me. So it’s a good choice to meet all kinds of girls on this website. All I thought had changed until I met Melissa through Charmingdate and I really cannot say enough about her, She made me want to find a new parter in my rest life. Melissa, is the most special woman I have talked to for a very long time. I am so happy I have met her. she makes me smile and laugh. I know that my future will involve her and we can build a future. Also Russian women are so very different from American women, and I must say she light my life, Russian women are family oriented. What they need is a genuine man who will support and love them, and I will be the man like that for my Melissa.

    I have been a member of for almost a year now and I am 51 years old . I just date certain age group 35- 40 years old. Russian women for fun at the beginning. Because before I register the website have seen varies reviews of this site both positive and negative. When my time for finding my love in I have talked with about 5 different women. But each woman talked to me seems eager to marry me.I don’t know why. Then a friend told me Russian woman are really interested with American especially rich man. I don’t mind this but I must say it’s a good site for guys who wants to talk with Russian women and gain some skills with dating beautiful women.

    Recently, I was able to meet a nice Russian girl on the site and have been communicating with her for about half a year. I planned to meet each other in the next year. And we have committed to each other in the talking. There may be some bad apples as there are with any site, but if you take the time and make the can do it to. I couldn't be happier.

    Not what they seem to be they also use templets and auto replies.
    One used the word "SnowFlakes" when you asked them for information about the site via texting.
    Another stated she receives the Emails in her inbox but you get a popup message that states the email will be printed for the person addressed to.
    I was able to find out that most of the people posing and the woman get credits for each chat, email, photo received. Most get a reward for your spending. wow! great way to earn money by playing with peoples emotions! there are legit sites but I would not call this one of them.
    Another issue I found the Email would never be read by the person intended
    Each woman seemed to have the same birth month as you when they try to contact you.
    Each Email would have more charges attached when opening attachments mostly the same pic that are on their profile.
    When I asked on different occasions to send me a photo with their "member ID", my name, and blowing a kiss they could not and stopped writing.
    (NOTE: if you ask for a photo that can not be "photo shopped" they can not produce)
    The response posted on this page from "CharmingDate Customer Service " from 2013 is a joke and the games still are being played.
    I noticed my profile / details was modified (doctored) from time to time. LOL I don't used the fraise "your man" or "Husband".
    Some of the letters don't match the names or profiles.
    They get their birth month on location wrong when you ask them
    If "CharmingDate Customer Service" wanted to fix the problem they would give refunds for being misleading. instead they will ask the question well... why did you sign up?

    Hello everyone
    I just deleted my profile from this site but not upset with it! This is my story of talking to one lady here and meeting.
    On the moment of registration I had two kids and wife, ex wife actually. After two years of fights and misunderstanding we decided to do a break for a while but both knew that everything are over. It’s reality. Can bet that many of us have the same story…
    After some time, I found one blonde Olga, long legs, good figure, no children and with good sense of humor) Talks, understanding, flirt and jokes, all were there, so I decided to go to her and see by myself after 4 months of talking. It was nice two days in Kiev with her after what I went home. She is beautiful lady and really interesting inside. Maybe I should tell her “Thank you” for that she helped me to understand that I still love my ex! Lol)
    I thought that my feelings to Helen were dead, but after meeting Olga and news that Helen has other man too I stopped thinking about other ladies! I want only my wife back!
    Maybe you still love your ex too?) lol
    Hope that one of you would be loved by this wonderful lady Olga C100405 but I have mine)
    Bye guys, good luck!

    Hello world... ! First of all, I want to address to those men who always complaining about everything. After having viewed dozens of reviews here, I was very much surprised, with those whiners and crybabies who dared to leave their stupid reviews about the Charmdate. Come on, guys, how long ago you left your Mom's skirt? You have never known, that in this world, we need to pay for everything? I don't want to be boasting much, but at my early 40s I am happy with my constant income of about 20000 bucks a months... If you get paid less than that, please, go and continue your crying and complaining, cause you will never get success in your life. Real man, who will be admired with truly ideal women, should be successful first of all. But not the millionaire, of course - this stage should be achieved only with woman, who will be your best support. So, to tell you the truth, I don't understand and completely surprised with those men who don't respect themselves, and become ashamed telling here, that they have don't have money to pay 7 bucks to write a letter to a woman! I am sincerely sympathizing these men, and wish them, that at least, some ugly colleague from their miserable works would agree on their proposal to live their whole joint lives in completely poor conditions, gloomy poverty. I wish men who could respect themselves, would understand me better now. Guys, listen, women are very interesting creatures, but they have been never complicated for me... Cause, I realize that if you want to catch her attention, and then win her heart, you must be ready for a challenge. It's not about money, but it's much more interesting and blood-thrilling to be winning her heart, making at least some simple presents to her. And for me it doesn't matter, that I need to pay some other 100 bucks to award her with flowers, which she really deserves.
    Let me tell you one interesting case, which happened with me here... I met a woman, Marie by name, but he called her Marinka. Which I also liked so much. It's difficult to remember her ID, but if me is not mistaken, something like C93 15 53 ... seems to be so. She had chestnut hair, and brown eyes, and beautiful daughter her little princess, Sophie by name. Wonderful ladies, I was proud of knowing them. But unfortunately, I am only starting my 40s, actually soon I will be 41... but she was for a few years older - and at once, she told me that we could not have bright future, cause she needed somebody little bit older than her. I tried to reassured her that I could be nice candidate for her, because in my 40s I could look better than men in 50s, who counting every single penny to live their miserable lives... She gave me a chance! Just a goddess in woman's body... She asked if we could meet and deal with everything in reality... Of course, I agreed! I paid for tickets to Ukraine, Kiev, it seems about 2000 bucks for two-way ticket... I met her, and we spent amazing time at her place on couple of meetings. But we didn't get on well. I really felt that she was little bit older for me, so I needed to step back, and become only a good friend to her.
    All right, why am I telling this story, dear visitors, and users of charmdate. Just wanted to give you some useful advice. If you want a woman, you should do maximum of yours to be with her. You see her profile, and it seems to be really beautiful and intelligent at the same time, without naked breasts and other parts of the body - Don't wait, please write to this woman. Somebody could become faster than you, and take her away. Write to her, and don't push her with your problems, financial issues, illnesses or something like that. Softly, try to know her, and then step by step agree about real time meeting. Then come and see her (don't forget big bunch of flowers, heh)
    That is everything you can do, of course some good gifts in the process of communication would bring a big booster to your chance of winning her heart.
    Guys, please, realize, women don't need to know how much you pay here. If you respect yourself, you never tell that to a woman... For example, we have medium rhythm of communication with her, something like 7-10 letters a day, couple of chats during a week, and sometimes we have calls, when I can enjoy her wonderful voice, and charming laugh... So, it costs me only 2000 bucks a months, together with gifts I have been sending to her. Because for this 2000 I could buy about 5 packs of 100 credits in each. So it was enough for me to keep our communication alive, and don't be a very old man who can communicate once a day (it's a pity that women here need to communicate with those silent players). What is 2000 bucks for a man, who can earn well? Nothing. I should better talk to my woman, than spending this money on extra meals, with unhealthy food, heh... I know, real and normal men will understand me. That is all, I wanted to say. Maybe one more thing to add... Please, if you meet this lady, Marie, this wonderful woman, please don't offend her! She doesn't deserve stupid behavior from the creatures who can call themselves real men!
    Thank you for attention. Hope your life will change to the better now! Recommend this place for your friends who still don't know how to get acquainted with alive woman, heh :)

    @Darren Bowman A good Ukrainian woman is always frugal. She does not ask for gifts and beg for money. The key is to get all the information on her upfront. Know her phone number, mailing address, vk/facebook, instagram. . etc. Then you can have a certain level of trust. When you get over there, pick your own lodgings. Then do your dating with your lady or ladies. Be careful. Be alert. And do not be surprised if you find a special lady, that it become physical very quickly.

    Good luck.

    (1) Chat is initiated with pre-fabricated text which keeps repeating if you watch them long enough. A few with reoccurring spelling mistakes, of course from "different" "women".
    (2) You get insane attention from 19 year olds, while out on a free dating site, you know it is all different. Sure it is.
    (3) Once you log in, at office times, you will immediately receive 'admirer mails' partly short text type such as chat, partly long text where someone did some more work. Not necessarily the person you are looking at.
    (4) Compare photos closely. Sometimes they mix pictures of similar looking ones among them, but definitely not the person the profile is supposed to be about.
    (5) If you dare write with one and give hints where you can be found outside (getting past the censorship, that is), the lady will pretend not to understand nor comply with your desire to get off the exploitation site. Why should she, if she earns her part.
    (6) Letters try anything to get you moving, appealing to your desires, seeking out if you are a pervert, offering three-somes, even offering their daughters for s... - no trick is too mean for getting target individuals on the hook.
    (7) Letters may have contradictional content to profiles.
    (8) Some persons here are hired to write pro-charmdate, especially the condescendant figure calling himself 'Chris Backler' who joined this place just for this single post and keeps insulting people questioning the site while drawing a bogus picture of his earnings... Fits perfectly the rotten psyche behind the exploitation network doing fraud on guys who are seeking a partner.
