Outwardly, the dating platform Companions.com.au does not look very inviting. The landing page is extremely text-heavy, and the design, along with the interface are rather outdated. Although, a book should never be judged by its cover; we took a closer look at what the site had to offer. We created a free account: explored the site’s features, read the terms and conditions, then searched the internet for user experiences and reviews. Aside from its old-fashioned look, Companions.com.au is surprisingly good.
Solid and safe
Even though the features are neither exceptional nor particularly innovative, the site provides you with all the tools you would need to search for matching partners in your area. Such features include, chatrooms, private chats, forums, and many more. As all these features are 100% free, users do not have to worry about risky subscription plans or overpriced chat-credits. Hence, no rip-offs or scams are to be feared.
During our online research, we stumbled over numerous reports and reviews about Companions.com.au. Many users seem to be very happy with the website. The forums seem to be particularly popular. Several users pointed out that these forums are simply great: to meet similar-minded people and make new friends in no time.
Unfortunately, we also found a significant number of negative user experiences. Some former users claim that the members’ area is packed with fake profiles, romance scammers, and fraudsters; who are using the platform as a hunting ground for new scam victims. Others found it extremely difficult to find anyone who is seriously interested in an actual relationship. Allegedly, most members are mainly looking for casual sex dates.
Not bad for a free website
Taking into consideration that Companions.com.au is 100% free, the site truly offers a lot and leaves very little to be desired. Nonetheless, we advise you to be cautious when meeting new people here: to avoid falling victim to romance scammers. Nonetheless, you can still give the site a try.
