mingle2.com

Mingle2.com is an online dating site with an international reach but which mainly includes users from the United States as well as the UK, Canada, and Europe. You can use the site for free or pay an extra monthly fee for premium membership (known as MinglePlus). This allows you to access a range of features including chat and to increase your profile ranking, something you might want to consider, giving you a better chance of being seen by other members.

Mingle2.com Main Features Reviewed

  • Mingle2.com offers features that work for people who are looking for long-term relationships or something a little less serious. It is for heterosexual and same-sex couples. After you register, you can search for people based on age, gender, looks, interests and hobbies and location. The search feature is fairly basic, as is the website and mobile app, but works fine.  

  • The site offers a matching feature, which is also basic and doesn’t seem to be very accurate. It works out who might be a good match for you by having you say yes, no or maybe to other profiles in order to narrow down the potential candidates who you can then flirt with.  

  • Another feature is the community forums, places for people to meet and share advice and information on dating. The majority of people on the forums are from the US, meaning the dating advice is not always appropriate for people from other countries and should be approached with caution.

  • A lot of people use the site to meet people who live close to them so it’s important to bear this in mind if you are looking for a relationship with someone who lives further afield. If you are, this still might not be the site for you as the reviews from people who have been speaking to women from Eastern Europe have said they doubt most are genuine and that they might have been the victim of a scam. 

  • One of the major downsides for the site is that, whether you use the free option or pay the premium, you will see ads, and these can be quite intrusive and annoying, popping up every few minutes. It’s easy to click on them by accident while browsing the site, meaning you end up where you really don’t want to be.

Mingle2.com Pros and Cons Reviewed

Pros

  • Despite being basic, the site is easy to sign up for, easy to use and easy to navigate

  • It is free to message people on the site, though other features will need to be paid for

  • For those not looking for long-term relationships, it can be fun to use and help you meet people local to you

 

Cons

  • The membership is smaller than other similar sites, especially outside of the UK and the United States

  • You cannot use the site without seeing ads, which is frustrating and can mean you ending up on sites you don’t want to be visiting

  • The focus on this site is more about meeting people locally and not on longer-term or international relationships

  • Reviews suggest that some people using the site may not be genuine and, with few verification requirements, might leave legitimate members open to scams.

Mingle2.com Prices Reviewed

Mingle2.com is a free site which seems to be paid for by advertisements versus memberships. There is a premium membership option known as MinglePlus which will allow you to use features such as video chat or raise your profile ranking. Unfortunately, even by taking out a premium membership you cannot get rid of the ads.

Overall: Is Mingle2.com a Scam or Trusted Site?

Mingle2.com is a pretty basic site though it does offer options of a mobile site and mobile app making it flexible to use. It has a decent mix of members in the US and also in the UK, where there are 20,000 estimated users. Outside of this, it is hard to judge how many people are registered and so this might make finding relationships internationally difficult if that’s what you are looking for as the site is more focused on people meeting other people locally. 
 
Where there are international members, Mingle2.com reviews suggest that they are not all genuine and may be part of a scam. Many members talk about being asked by women from Eastern Europe asking them to join them in Google Hangout and, when they do, being asked for money or gifts. Reviews also talk about having had malware put on their computers after accidentally clicking on ads on the site, another sign that Mingle2.com may be a scam, one that could be costly.

    Welcome to my profile. I’m a lady of 55 years of age and I joined the site in order to meet a German gentleman - although I’m a US national and currently live in the USA, I’m planning to retire to Germany in the next few years. After I initially posted my profile, I received a huge number of responses from English speaking guys, many of whom claimed to be widowed or posted overseas in either the military, the oil industry or, slightly odd, a surgeon who has dedicated his life and skills to the UN. Strangely, none of these English speakers showed any interest in connecting through video chat and wanted, instead, to communicate only in writing. I did receive some responses from French gentlemen, two of whom declared their love for me, despite the fact that we had not actually met in person - and then, surprise surprise, followed up with a sob story and a request for cash. There is a third hopeful that I have been chatting with on Hangouts for the past fortnight, however, the fact that he says that he will be up for a video chat ‘as soon as he has a working phone’ does not fill me with confidence. Unfortunately, I have to conclude that Mingle is not well run and is populated by chancers and con artists.

    Wow! At first I thought this was maybe a psychological experiment gone wrong. I’ve been on a number of other dating sites and have, on the whole, connected with some interesting people but this site is something else. I would hazard a guess that the people running this site are either mentally challenged or teenage boys. During my year on the site I’ve been called names, I’ve chatted with lovely ladies who turn out to be idiotic teenage boys, I’ve been trolled and, I’ve wasted huge amounts of time which could have been spent on much more worthwhile sites. It’s sad that there are people like myself who have made the mistake of thinking that this was a professional, genuine dating site. This site should be reported to authorities - and I intend to do just that!

    I’ve been really disappointed with this site to be honest - at first I was really excited as I received a huge number of messages but, once I sifted through the scammers, the men just looking for sex and the weirdos, the list quickly dwindled to three hopefuls who I have since met in person. Unfortunately red flags are immediately raised with most of these people who use a number of excuses for the fact that they either want to embark on a long distance thing, making me suspect that they’re married or in a long term relationship. Of course there have been the obligatory requests for cash or to send on parcels - in my opinion, the site is a hive of criminal activity and sexual deviants - please don’t waste your money or your time!

    To be honest, I’m genuinely shocked and upset by my experience on this site. I’m a gentleman in my mid 50s and I joined this site for a few weeks as I was looking to meet a lady of around my own age for friendship and, hopefully, a fulfilling and serious relationship. From the moment I joined, I received response after response from people claiming to be ladies in their twenties (not what I said I was looking for in my profile). I was a little perplexed by these purportedly young women contacting a man of my age (and telling me I look ‘hot’ in my profile picture which, I’m reasonably sure, I do not), however, when I responded, reiterating my age (under the assumption that they had misread my profile), I never heard from them again. This really has been a disappointing experience for somebody who wanted nothing more than to find somebody to spend some quality time with.

    Well, that’s a few months of my life that I’m never getting back. Where to begin? I joined this site as I was very keen to embark on a serious relationship, possibly marriage, with a lady in my local area. Having perused the site, I was psyched to find a few ladies who fitted the bill and then initiated correspondence with them. Unfortunately, my hopes were very quickly dashed as, one after another, these delightful gals (some of whom were not even in the same country as myself, let alone the area) asked me for my hard earned money, iTunes cards and, of course, financial assistance for assorted dying relatives. From my experience, I doubt that there’s more than a handful of genuine people looking to meet other genuine people on the whole site. I thought about complaining to whoever runs it but then decided that I’d already wasted enough time on this thing and would, instead, look elsewhere.

    It’s a shame that this site, which was once great and full of interesting people has become a forum for the usual scammers, spammers and idiots. I’m sure there are still a few genuine people joining but they, like myself, no doubt take one look at the kind of responses coming through and immediately remove themselves (and possibly take a shower afterwards). Responses I received included requests for cash, requests for naked photographs and the usual messages about how I could help an entire family by sending just a few hundred dollars. I don’t think there’s any real administration of the site, meaning that these ‘people’ can, unfortunately, just run amok without any kind of policing or censorship. I would advise anybody to stay well clear of this site which, as far as I’m concerned, should be taken down.
