Last week I had an amazing first date with a sexy woman I’d met on the Internet. Before this date, I had many doubts about international dating sites. Frankly, I didn’t believe that you could fall in love with someone who lives on the opposite edge of the world. And then I read this RomanceTale.com review. I’m big into Asia, especially its intriguing women, and it made sense to start my international dating experience with a platform where most members are from China, South Korea, and Japan. After reading this review twice, RomanceTale didn’t strike me as a scam, so I decided to create my account there. That’s how I eventually met my date. So here’s my experience of being a Romance Tale member.
Is RomanceTale a scam-proof dating site?
Frankly, I don’t think, that RomanceTale is a scam. I felt safe there.
I googled Romance Tale and found some reviews from other men. They were rather positive with most authors citing reliable anti-scam protection measures on this site. It was important to me as several years ago my friend had a bitter experience with a professional online dating scammer. While he was interacting with his so-called girlfriend, she was suddenly banned from the site since she had a whole history of luring cash and prizes from other men. She was interacting with another guy simultaneously and that guy reported her to the site’s administrators, which became the only reason that my friend escaped from being cheated himself. He was broken up inside, and I wanted to avoid repeating his nightmare.
On RomanceTale, the most advanced features like exchanging contacts or requesting a meeting are available only for members who have successfully passed online verification.
This guarantees that your virtual mate is a real person, not a group of fraudsters hiding behind a fake name and stock photos.
RomanceTale’s refund policy states that if a member turns out to be a scammer, all the credits you have spent on them will be refunded to your account. And if you have bought them gifts or flowers on the site, you also will get this money back. There are those that argue these measures can’t protect you from disappointment and heartbreak, and they are right. Nothing can protect from human nature, both online and off. But most sites don’t protect your money, while this one does.
My research convinced me it was safe enough to look for love on RomanceTale.com, so I created an account there. It was easy. A single who wants to join the site should enter their name, sex, date of birth, email and password into the sign up form and click on the “Find my matches” button.
Then all he needs to do to become a full member is to confirm his e-mail address and provide answers to several questions.
Romance Tale uses matching algorithms that help compatible partners find each other on the site without wasting endless hours on profile-by-profile searches. But if you want to take advantage of this, you need to share some information about who you are and who you are looking for. That’s why when you log in for the first time, the site asks you to complete two questionnaires.
The first is about your dream woman. How old is she? What is her marital status? Does she have children? Does she plan to have more children? Here you find nine of such questions. You can both answer or skip each of them.
The second questionnaire contains twelve questions about you, as well as a form in which you can introduce yourself to other members. What is your occupation? How many children do you have? Do you smoke? You can skip the questions you didn’t like, but the more information you share, the higher is your chance to get the best match on RomanceTale.com
Upon completing the questions, you make your profile visible to other members. You should also upload your profile picture to give women a chance to write you first, whose messages start popping up within minutes. You can also search for your dream woman on the site. There are three types of search on the site:
- Simple search
- Extended search
If the only criterion that matters to you is your date’s age, or you if you want to limit your search to a particular age group, a simple search is the best option. I tried to find a woman between 22 and 29 years old and got 363 possible matches. What an awesome selection!
Then I decided to use Extended Search and filter these profiles by adding more criteria. I chose “not married”, “no children”, and “not religious” in the drop-down lists, which narrowed my potential mates to 277 profiles.
Now, if you don’t need ANY information about a woman except what she looks like, you should try the playful Faces search tool. Using it, you can flip through profile pictures of different women and give your “Like” to those whose attention you want to draw.
Premium account on RomanceTale.com
Despite RomanceTale being a premium dating site, I paid nothing for joining the site or for getting access to profiles. But you’ll have to pay to get serious, such as sending instant messages and e-mails, watching videos and viewing private photos of other members, as well as exchanging real and virtual gifts. It means that you need to buy a subscription to enjoy them.
When I registered on RomanceTale, the site offered me 20 free credits so I could test these advanced features and decide whether I want to pay for a subscription. With these free credits, I also got access to all my statistics that had been unavailable to me earlier. They gave me information about my profile visitors, those women who liked my page and then added it to their favorites.
When these credits had run out, I got another 20 credits for $9.99. But if you communicate with many members at once, credits run out very quickly, most often at that very moment when things start to get interesting. It utterly annoyed me and I straightened out this problem by asking the site’s support specialists – who are available 24/7 and utterly helpful – to show me how to set up automatic charges.
But if you don’t want to do it, there are other credit packages you can buy:
- 50 credits for $28.99;
- 125 credits for $64.99;
- 250 credits for $99.99;
- 750 credits for $214.99.
Frankly, the more credits at your disposal, the more opportunities you’ll have to build the relationship of your dreams. Be ready to pay 2 credits for each minute in the live chat you spend and 10 credits for each first letter you send to a new female member. A cute online virtual gift with a message up to 300 characters will cost 5 credits.
Pay attention to the last opportunity. In my experience, a unique image in the form of a virtual gift is the best way to get conversation flowing on Romance Tale as it enables you not only to say “Hello” and pay her a compliment, but also to indicate your penchant for romanticism.
It’s also very easy. All you need to do is to open the profile of the girl you like and click on the Virtual Gift button. Then you will see a window where you can choose the gift you want to send this beauty and write your message.
I usually send a funny hamster, but you can choose another cute image.
As your relationship advances, you can also send your date real flowers and presents, ask for her contact details (but only once you’re sure she’s for rule, after verification), and request the assistance of RomanceTale managers in arranging a meeting in her native country. I was pleased with all these services, especially with the last one. I would have never been able to organize a romantic evening in a foreign country on my own. Thanks to Romance Tale, I am wrapping up the week of a lifetime that I’ve spent in China.
If you prefer texting with beauties on your smartphone, whether at the gym or on your way to work, RomanceTale has developed a lite mobile version that can easily be opened on devices like smartphones and tablets. For the few weeks I’ve tried it, it has worked quickly and is easy to navigate, with all the necessary tools for pursuing readily available. So feel free to log in on your mobile browser!
Of course, I’d prefer using a mobile application but RomanceTale.com hasn’t released it yet.
Romance Tale offers some of the most professional support specialists in the premium online dating scene, who are always ready to provide you with the necessary assistance. That’s literally because they work 24/7. As I mentioned earlier, I had turned to them when I needed to set up automatic charges during my chats and I was very pleased with their work. An extremely friendly guy named Alex gave me clear instructions and even attached screenshots to make them more understandable.
There are several ways to contact the support team on this site:
- Scroll to the bottom of the page and click on the Contact Us link. An easy-to-use form will pop up and you can type in your question.
- Find the Contact Us button on the righthand side of any screen, which also brings up the contact form.
- Send your questions to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Delete Your Account
Once you’ve met your soulmate, as thousands of clients have, sooner or later you both will decide it’s best to delete your accounts. (Because why would you keep a profile there if you’ve already found your perfect partner? ; ) But you won’t be able to find a simple button to do this as members are not authorized to delete accounts manually. They need to contact the support team by either using the Contact Us form or sending an e-mail.
Be ready for being asked about why you don’t want to be a member anymore. When I did my deletion, I explained that I had met my soulmate and want to be exclusive with her. The support specialist accepted my request and, in a very nice gesture, wished us everlasting happiness! The next day, I received notification that my account had been deactivated successfully.
So RomanceTale is a serious site – not a scam – for those willing to invest serious money to cover the extensive expenses to ensure members’ safety, among its other premium services. If you are ready to pay the game of love seriously and aren’t intimidated by a long-distance relationship, you will get an amazing user experience at minimum, and find your soulmate as the best outcome. No regrets from me!
