In the wide world of both online dating websites and applications, it can be difficult to find a worthwhile place to spend your time and your money in the search for either casual dating or a serious relationship. There are the more popular websites out there like OKCupid and Plenty of Fish as well as the growing popularity of mobile applications like Tinder and Bumble.
These particular websites and applications are more about casual dating but you also have options like eHarmony and Match.com, which focus more on forming serious relationships. Unfortunately, I cannot rank XCheaters up there with one of the legitimate or deserving websites for being able to find casual partners or serious relationships for a number of reasons.
Sadly, XCheaters had been known to be involved with scamming or ripping off people who have registered for their website’s services in the past. There are actual cases of this fraudulent behavior having been committed and it would be wise to be careful about avoiding that before you decide to sign-up.
It’s important to be warned about these cases before it’s too late and you get taken advantage of. You can go ahead and ignore this fact but you may end up regretting that decision in the future.
If you want to be more careful about joining this website, it would be wise to completely read the ‘Terms and Conditions’ section before you agree to sign-up.
You should know what you’re signing up for before you register and by reading this section, you’ll have a much better idea of what to expect from XCheaters.com.
This is especially important to consider given that this website will ask you for your credit card information if you would like to sign-up for a paid membership subscription.
In order to not have this personal information of yours messed with or to be possibly a victim of credit card fraud, check the background of this website and if they are giving you the whole truth or none of the truth.
If you would like to contact the XCheaters.com website, there are a few different ways to do so. The physical address of the website is located at Islands House Grande Rue, St. Martins, Guernsey, Channel Islands GY4 6RU.
If you’re not able to get on a plane and head over there, XCheaters also has an e-mail address listed on their website as apart of their customer support efforts. The e-mail address is email@example.com.
If you would like to file a formal complaint about this website, you can do so at the Better Business Bureau which is responsible for making sure that customers like yourself do not get defrauded, overcharged, or manipulated by suspicious websites like XCheaters.
- Basic Profile
After you sign-up as a free or paid user of XCheaters.com, you’ll be able to have access to a number of features including the ability to create a personal profile.
All you need to register for the website is a personal e-mail address, which you’ll then be asked to create a personal password to go along with your new username.
You must be eighteen years or older in order to use this website because it may contain ‘adult’ and explicit content not suitable for minors.
In addition to giving your e-mail address and password, you’ll also be asked for your ‘age’ at the time when you register, which is used to help you find other members of the website in your area who are single and are within your preferred age range. You should remember to only divulge personal information that you are comfortable sharing with the rest of this online community.
- Privacy and Terms & Conditions
You may have to receive e-mail newsletters and updates from XCheaters from time to time as well as advertising offers that can be sent from the website as well as its’ affiliates.
Be aware of your personal privacy and make sure that it isn’t being compromised after you read the fine print and before you sign-up.
- Fine Print
The fine print will also include the fact that virtual profiles on XCheaters will go out of their way to contact you based on your interests and hobbies.
These virtual profiles are generated by the computer software and are designed to make you commit to upgrading your membership so it’s important to know that when you sign-up.
XCheaters.com advertises itself as an ‘adult’ community but is open to members who are either seeking more casual encounters like a one-night stand or for those other members who are looking for a real, long-lasting relationship.
Members can be from any kind of sexual orientation and are not discriminated against based upon their personal wants and needs.
On XCheaters.com’s website, you can see a large photo collage of members who are currently registered and are using the website for their dating needs.
These are dozens of these pictures on the main website page along with a claim by XCheaters that they have over two million active members and over thirty thousand users who are online right now.
These numbers are clearly inflated, as there are only very few dating websites out there who could claim those kinds of numbers and XCheaters is not one of them.
It is also likely that those pictures of users displayed on the main website page are fake or fraudulent and shouldn’t be taken seriously.
Be careful about these pictures being displayed and the false member statistics. This could be a sign that XCheaters as an online dating website isn’t what it is cracked up to be.
- Profile Information
Beyond just your username and age that can be created when you first make your profile, you can also fill out your ‘zip code’ indicating where is your current location / city so that you’ll be able to see those matches within your radius of choice whether it be five or ten or twenty miles.
If you want to make your profile more personable, you can decide to add a description of your profile as well as more details about yourself such as your hobbies, interests, and what you’re looking for on the website.
If you’d like to keep this information on your profile, make sure you click on the ‘save changes’ button.
- Profile Pictures
If you would like to get even more views and visitors to come to your profile, uploading a few pictures of yourself to your profile is a great idea that will yield instant results.
You can upload your pictures either by selecting photos from your personal computer files and adding them to your ‘photos’ section or you can use a custom e-mail address to e-mail your photos to as attachments in the message.
The website will automatically upload them to your ‘photos’ section after you send them to the custom e-mail address.
It’s important to note that the staff at XCheaters reviews all photos before they are accepted and added to your profile.
The photos that you decide to upload must show you and you alone. There can’t be any random pictures of cars, picturesque landscapes, friends, family members, etc. It’s best for the photos to be simply about you and your physical appearance.
- Sending Likes and Receiving Matches
One of the perks of being a basic member or even a paid member of XCheaters is the ability to visit other members’ profiles and to have the ability to ‘like’ their profiles.
This ability to ‘like’ other profiles is a good way to express indirect interest in another member whom you are attracted to and would like to get to know better.
When you ‘like’ another member’s profile, they have the ability to either ignore the profile or to ‘like’ your profile indicating their mutual interest in you. Each member receives a formal notification about being ‘liked’ each time it happens on his or her profile.
If both members end up liking each other’s profile, there will be a mutual match meaning that their profile will show up in your ‘My Matches’ section allowing you to then send a message to continue the conversation and to learn more about each other. Each profile you mutually ‘like’ will show up in the left-hand side of the profile in the ‘My Matches’ section.
For those members who haven’t liked you back yet, they will still appear in your profile but in the ‘My Likes’ section to indicate as to which profiles you have liked in the past and are waiting on a response from.
- Liked Me section
In the left-hand section menu, there’s also the ‘Liked Me’ section, which shows those users who have liked you but who you haven’t responded to yet with a ‘like’ of your own.
There are multiple ways to express your interest in someone but the most direct option on XCheaters is the ‘like’ button option which can then lead to a message and then later a date if you’re lucky enough.
- Profile Icons
In order to separate certain profiles from other ones in terms of visibility, there are a few icons on XCheaters that help to do just that.
When you want to see if another user is online or offline, you should look to see if there is a ‘green’ icon close to the profile picture that is lit up. If that’s the case, that means that the profile is currently online and available to chat.
If you want to tell which member is just a standard member or which member is a premium member, premium members will have a ‘star’ icon listed on their profile to show that they are a paying member of the website.
- Adult Content Option
As an adult user of the website, you’ll be able to control how much adult content you would like to view as a member of XCheaters. A lot of the sponsorship and advertisements on XCheaters are from websites that specialize in showing adult content.
However, you have the option as a user of the website to either have the ‘show adult content’ switch in the ‘edit account’ section be listed as ‘on’ or ‘off.’ Only you have the choice in this decision as a member of this website.
When you’re a standard, non-paying member of the website, you’ll be able to access some main features of the XCheaters website.
However, when you decide to sign-up as a paying, premium user of this website, you’ll get access to both the main and additional features that will give you the full experience.
Standard members can visit every profile on the website, be able to read and receive private messages from premium members but not standard members, and you can like other users’ profiles even if you can’t send them private messages.
- Unlimited Messages
When you upgrade to a paid membership and become a premium member of the website, you have the ability to send private messages to any and all users regardless if they are standard or premium in nature, and you’ll be shown higher up in the ‘search’ results because of your ‘star’ icon, which indicates that you’re a premium member.
- Full Access to Audio and Video Files
You’ll also get full access to any audio clips or video files that are apart of the website. In the dating center, you can also post updates to your profile or what you have been up to lately.
- Additional Contact Information
When you send a message to a standard member, you’ll be able to include additional contact information about yourself so you can contact them back.
A premium member can include their personal e-mail address and their phone number so that the standard member can be able to contact that user back outside of the website’s messaging system.
Costs of Membership
In order to be able to send any messages, XCheaters asks that you upgrade to a paid membership. They highlight this disclaimer in their ‘Terms & Conditions’ section so it’s important that you read the fine print carefully.
A paid membership at XCheaters.com isn’t cheap and you’ll pay a lot more for the additional features than you would at other online dating websites.
If you think it’s still worth it to sign-up for a paid membership, here are the price options that you will have to consider.
- One Month Membership
For a one-month subscription, you’ll pay the most on a monthly basis but it will be the shortest-term commitment of all the three options. A one-month paid subscription will cost $30 and you’ll have to pay for it all in a one-time billing period.
- Three Month Membership
If you’re looking to save some money per month, the second option is for a three-month membership commitment. The three-months membership will cost a total of $60 at a cost of $20 per month, which is about 33% cheaper than the first option.
- One Year Membership
The last option is the cheapest option but is also the longest-term commitment in terms of an overall membership subscription. For a one-year membership, it will cost a total of $120 with each month costing only $10, which is about 66% cheaper than the first and most expensive option.
Depending upon on how much money you would like to spend and how long you would like to commit to XCheaters.com, these are the options to consider.
Positives and Negatives
- Free to sign up and like or match with other users
XCheaters has a few positives as an online dating website such as the ability to sign-up, register, and create a profile within a few minutes. There are also numerous ways to message and chat other users especially if you are a premium member of the website.
Even if you’re a free or standard member, you can still ‘like’ or ‘match’ with other users who may decide to contact you and set up a date. The website also has an easy-to-use interface and is simple to navigate.
Unfortunately, the negatives of this particular online dating website outweigh the few positives out there.
XCheaters.com is quite expensive dating website and doesn’t offer much bang for the buck compared with other options like OKCupid and Plenty of Fish. If you’re a free member, there’s not much you can do besides ‘like’ and view other profiles.
- Fake profiles
XCheaters also has a lot of fake profiles who will message you and do their best to get you to sign up for a paid membership so that they will get their money out of you.
These fake profiles will usually be attractive men or women who are actually computer software bots designed to message new users who sign-up for the website.
There are also employees of XCheaters who are paid by the website to message new members expressing fake interest in their profiles and their pictures. When it comes to this dating website, be careful and use your best judgment.
