Reviews is an online dating site that has customers from across the world. However, the majority of its female members are from Eastern Europe and Asia, and the majority of its male members are from Western Europe and the US. Main Features Reviewed

Once you’ve signed up for, you’ll complete your profile to include a wide range of personal details. This means providing information on your physical appearance, hair and eye color for example, and personal preferences – whether you are looking for marriage, for example, or how well your match should speak English. 
These details will be used when people are searching for potential matches and, when you are carrying out searches, you can drill down on the same criteria. You can save searches for future use, and you can send messages to other members for free – as long as they are paid members. You cannot take part in video chats or share personal pictures unless you are a paid member. Pros and Cons Reviewed


  • The site is easy to use, though the layout is somewhat basic

  • The membership fee is comparable with other sites and can be paid monthly



  • You do not need to upload a photo when setting up your profile (though the site will keep reminding you) and, as a result, there are lots of them without photos, meaning you cannot see what potential matches look like

  • In theory, you do not need to be a member to communicate with potential matches. However, the people you are talking to have to be paid members. As the majority of paid members are men with women having free memberships, if you are a male looking for a female partner, you will need to take out a membership. Prices Reviewed

You can take out a free membership with limited access to the site's features.

Overall: is a Scam or Trusted Site? is a basic dating website that is comparable in price to other agencies. It does not, however, offer additional services that some other agencies might such as advice and information or support with travel to other countries and visas. Also, unlike other sites, you are not as likely to be able to look at pictures of potential matches as uploading photographs is not mandatory. reviews highlight the lack of pictures as an issue for customers. Where there are photos, the quality is not necessarily as high as might be expected and their legitimacy has been questioned. Men have also commented on the number of women who have contacted them, encouraged them to sign up and then not contacted them again. This is very suggestive of a scam, especially when complaints have been made to customer services no action has been taken, leaving people out of pocket and without recourse.

    This site is really bad! I am not the most tech savvy person in the world, so I need a very simple platform when it comes to navigation, not this one! Terrible to get around, the profiles are very unrealistic, I suspect a lot of them might be fake. I used the site for one month, during that time I was constantly messaging women but have not had a response from any of them. And I am not an ugly guy, I may not be the best looking, but I’m far from ugly so I doubt my looks had anything to do with it. This site is bad news and I wouldn’t advise anyone to waste their time on it, take my word for it, you will just be disappointed.

    I’m not really too impressed to be honest, one of the main reasons being is that there are not enough good profiles to choose from. I don’t know if I’m just being fussy, but I am not interested in any of the matches that they are sending me. I have been on the site for over a month now and I think that should be enough time to find someone that I can at least start a conversation with, and I haven’t managed to do that, so I am not at all happy. I don’t know if it’s just me, but I don’t find lavaplace user-friendly at all, it’s very difficult to get around which makes you not want to bother. I’ve decided to take myself off the site and go elsewhere.

    I’m not impressed at all, this site is very difficult to use, I have had so many problems that I don’t even know where to start. Their customer service team is completely useless, when you contact them via email you have to wait days to get any type of response! I have not managed to meet anyone on the site because I can’t figure out how to use it. All the great features they talk about are not free you have to pay if you want to talk to anyone. Personally, I suspect that the majority of the profiles on this site are fake, because most of the women don’t look like average women, they are all super pretty. I have left the site and joined another dating site which is much better. I wouldn’t recommend this at all.

    I actually think that the majority of the profiles on this site are fake! Why do I think this? Because, I have been talking to a girl for a month, I really like her and thought it was time we met up, since I suggested meeting up, she has disappeared off the face of the earth and surprise surprise her profile is no longer on the site. So, I decided to give the experience the benefit of the doubt, maybe she just got scared, I started talking to another woman and the same thing happened! Coincidence? I think not! The site reals you in with these fake profiles so that you can pay their monthly fees and then you find out that these people actually don’t exist. I think this is disgusting, it’s basically theft and the perpetrators should be prosecuted.

    I have used a lot of dating sites, and I personally feel that this one is overrated. I mean, it’s not so bad, but neither is it as spectacular as it made out to be. Like most of the sites, if you really want to get the best out of it, you have to pay a monthly fee. I paid $29.99 for one month but cancelled once the month had come to an end because I didn’t think it was worth it. Needless to say, I haven’t met anyone that’s made my heart leap for joy. I am communicating with a couple of people but again, they are nothing to write home about. The only thing I really like about the site is that it has an app, so it makes chatting to potentials a lot easier.

    December 13, 2018 at 12:50 PM is like a mixture of salt and sugar for me. The sweet part I that I have met two very nice and genuine ladies here. The bitter side is that there are too many scammers such that you have to be careful even when you think that you have found great women. The owners of do not care about you, so long as you have made the payment. I found several profiles sharing a single photo and different details. They all appear online at the same time. I complained, they got kicked off the site, but they showed up again the next day. It’s not a completely great site.

    I won’t say that all the girls on this site are fake, however, it would be safe to say that the majority (around 80%) of the girls are fake. It depends on you how you chat with these girls, and find out whom to trust. I believe, when it comes to dating sites, it is best to trust your instincts, and don’t talk to the girl if she looks extremely good looking, as the chances are that the pictures are taken from the internet. My suggestion – only talk to the girls who are average looking

    When I shifted to a new place, I thought that other than meeting the girls in places like discs, and pubs I should also try some dating app. And, when I did a google search, I got lavaplace as a result, and, as the fees was not much, I immediately made a profile on this website. Soon, I started getting messages on this site, most of which were just copy, and paste, and looked like I was not the only one receiving them. Also, most of the messages looked similar, and I thought that it would be best if would just deactivate my profile

    Join this site at your own risk, as the site is full of fake people, and scammers. There are many females who have not put any profile picture, or girls who pretend to be from USA, and tell you a story about they are actually from US, and had to move back to Africa owing to some personal problem. These girls will try to flirt with you, and shower you with compliments, but, think yourself have you ever got so much attention? If no, then why suddenly you are getting so much attention on this site. Also, the customer support is of no use, as they never do anything other than ignoring your messages.
