    This is my main dating site, I have already refused others. At SCRUFF there is a paid subscription, and this is the best protection against inadequate. Men who write to me are interested in finding a life partner, dating lovers for one night sit on other sites that are more accessible. Therefore, communication does not bring negativity, but only pleasure. It’s so easy to find an interesting partner online and go to date, and if it doesn’t work out, then the parting took place without aggression, like in decent people. I’ve made correspondence with several men; they are all interesting personalities with whom it is pleasant to communicate. I recommend this decent dating site with great users.

    I don’t like the fact that the app is positioning itself as free, but all the normal features are available only to premium accounts. You have to pay $14.99 per month. The money is small, and the fee scares different scammers, bots and other unpleasant personalities, but it would be better to warn about the need for a paid subscription in advance. Despite the paid services, I like this app. There are a lot of questionnaires online, men write constantly, it’s possible to communicate with many of them simultaneously, arrange meetings, etc. I haven’t yet found a soul mate, but I spend a good time online.

    1. William says

      I completely agree with you. Only registration is free, for all other useful options, you have to pay. Moreover, I don’t like that you have to pay every month. And the fee doesn’t change whether you sit on the site around the clock or enter once a week. On the one hand, this is good, some kind of insurance against spammers rolls and maniacs. On the other hand, demanding money for any step resembles extortion. But this whole farce is compensated by the fact that it’s possible to meet a few really interesting people, with whom you can build serious relationships.

  3. Daniel A. says

    I have been using SCRUFF gay dating app about 2 months and I have met different people online and I have noticed some disadvantages. Firstly, they claim that this app is free, but in fact you need to buy subscription in order to use the app properly. There is no particular dissatisfaction with this, I expected this. Secondly, you can meet anyone here. I’ve chatted with bots, fakes, those who simply offered to pay me for sex and so on. But there are normal men too, but you need to communicate at least 2 weeks, and then you can go on a date in a crowded place.
