In the case of this UberHorny dating site review, that’s exactly what happened. It’s a direct replica of HornyMatches and no doubt a host of other low-quality sites that I have yet to check out.
As you can see here, the layout is the same, the site name is similar too. As you’ll see below, the tactics they use were basically identical which came as no surprise. Red flags were popping up from the moment I had an account.
No spam messages immediately after account creation
Reading all of this in the terms of the site wasn’t a great start. Still, I’ve made wrong assumptions about dating sites before so I pressed on. I created the blank profile as usual and was amazed to find that I didn’t have any inbox spam. Sadly, within about 20 minutes I started to receive some messages but hey, credit where it’s due, right?
They claim to have won an AVN award
This is something I saw on HornyMatches as well and it’s a claim I can’t seem to validate. They don’t say what year they allegedly won this award. Searching for proof of this win doesn’t turn up any evidence at all.
Near as I can tell, this is a false claim. Considering how obviously fake this “dating” site is, I can’t see AVN (Adult Video News) giving them a damn thing. The AVN awards are no joke but this site certainly is.
My recommendation: Stay away from UberHorny
Plain and simple, this site isn’t one you should be trusting with your credit card info. The profiles are very likely fake, the conversations make no sense and everything is designed to get you to pay for a membership.
Instead, you should use something more reputable like AFF. They have over 60 million real users and have a solid reputation as a legitimate site to find hookups. If you want to explore other options as well, we covered the best dating apps and websites of the year in a separate article.
Whichever way you go, don’t waste your time on sites like UberHorny. By all means though, pay attention to reviews like this one so you’re better educated on what a bad dating site looks like.
Pros and cons of UberHorny
Based off our recommendation, you can already tell that this site doesn’t have a lot going for it. But with that said, it isn’t all bad.
- Most fake profiles are easy to spot
- Setting your search parameters is simple
- Search results are easy to skim
- The site is not trustworthy
- The vast majority of profiles are fake
- Constant fake messages
- Home page cluttered with profiles from out of state
Having done so many of these reviews, I’ve learned to read through the boring legal ramblings before signing up. I can often get a good idea of what to expect just based on what they set out here, expecting nobody to read it.
In the case of UberHorny, I found a few gems that really set the tone for everything else. Here’s what I found:
“No site created profiles”
Honestly, at first, it seemed like maybe we were onto a winner here. They specifically set out, in bold, that they don’t create any profiles on the site. Based on my experience, this seems to be a bold lie rather than a bolded statement. More about that later.
They can use your photos for marketing multiple websites
You can see the long-winded legal jargon below but ultimately, it boils down to this. By creating a profile and uploading photos you’re giving them the right to use them for marketing purposes.
