Horny Matches is a frequently visited website for adult personals style online dating. The site carries profiles of over 35,000 users, mostly seeking casual types of relationships and hookups. It's free to join, but upgrading to a paid membership plan is required to communicate and fully participate in the site.
Creating a guest profile takes just a few moments - it can be edited at a later stage, including uploading/changing your pictures. As well as basic information, you can enhance the appeal of your profile by adding things such as fantasies, sexual activities, personality and outlook, sex accessories and more.
There's also a “Cupid Matches” button, which when clicked, will show you people who match your preferences.
Free members can wink at others, but they can't communicate in other ways, such as via email. Unlike Adult Friendfinder, it is possible to view profiles with a free account.
A Gold or Silver membership (starting at $36.24 for a single month) allows you to contact other members and begin a dialogue or set up a meeting. Paying members can highlight their profile, so that it's more prominent in searches.
They are also able to see the Instant Messenger screen names of those members who've chosen to make this information available to them. As an added bonus, there's a webcam feature that offers live adult content. Viewing is free, but most other types of interaction will require the purchase of credits.
The profiles on Horny Matches can be browsed by country, state or region by using the browse option or using the regular search function. Browsing by state/country is helpful because it shows the number of women and men (and who they are seeking), which gives you an instant heads up.
If this isn't enough, using the search will allow you to narrow down your matches on specifics such as age and relationship type sought which can include erotic chat, discreet relationship, or fetishes for example.
On most adult sites, males outnumber females by a large degree; Horny Matches is no exception in this respect.
Horny Matches is straightforward and user friendly, with a format that's easy to navigate and use. The large member database means you should be able to find suitable matches wherever you live. There's also an online help page for frequently asked questions such as account issues, the use of the site's features, and billing.
