Tawkify is a unique kind of dating site. You may be used to sites like Match.com or even Tinder, which allow you to select your own dating prospects. Tawkify is more of a curated dating website than those examples. So is that helpful to users? Our Tawkify reviews page puts this site in the spotlight.
Yet another dating site, right? We’ve covered a few here on You Reviews. Ashley Madison is one, and BeNaughty is another. SnapSext is a “dating site” that we laughed about. But we’ve been asked for Tawkify reviews, and we’re happy to deliver!
What is Tawkify?
If you’ve ever used a dating website, you know how it goes. First, you’ll answer about 16 pages worth of questions. All have to do with your interests, your personality, and what you’re looking for in a date.
Some websites advertise that they’re based on “psychological” profiles, while others, like Tinder, make no bones about the fact that first impressions are key. You either swipe in one direction if you’re physically attracted or the other if you’re not.
Tawkify is a little different, in that your matchmakers aren’t robots or algorithms. Instead, Tawkify enlists the help of human matchmakers. These people sit down and look at your profile picture as well as your profile itself, then match you with potential dates.
Does it work? Tawkify reviews are mixed. We, too, signed up for the service, and we’ll be sure to fill you in on our personal experiences with the site. We think you’ll be entertained with the results.
Tawkify Reviews: A Viable Service?
First of all, Tawkify is not suited for everyone. If you’re looking for a place where you can just upload a picture and start looking for a date, you’d be better off with a service like plenty of Fish or Tinder. Even if you don’t mind filling out pages upon pages of questions, Match.com might be a good fit for you.
Tawkify’s sign-up process is time intensive. It’s only a few pages, but it’s also not multiple choice. You’ll be prompted to state exactly what it is that you’re looking for in a date, and to express in a few words the best qualities that you possess.
Once you submit your information, it’s time to make a choice. Do you want to be a member? It’s free! You just sit back and wait for the curators to find you a match. Or, would you rather be a client? Clients are guaranteed matches. Of course, those matches are paid for.
Tawkify is, in short, ridiculously expensive. You’ll pay $8 per match, or $15 for three. But wait! That’s not all! If you feel that you must have help in finding your match, and wouldn’t be able to do so through a more traditional website, you can pay for the “New Client Experience.”
It costs $1,500. For three months.
Holy bank account, Batman! Apparently the service will not only help to find you a match, but if that date doesn’t go well the service will also pick apart, with a fine-toothed comb, what you may have done wrong. So, you know, for those of you who already have self-confidence issues, this sure beats those “other” services.
We wanted to love Tawkify, we really did. In theory it sounds great. But, as mentioned, we signed up for the service ourselves. Want to know what we experienced? Read on.
Tawkify Reviews: The You Reviews Team
There is so much bad to say about the Tawkify service. But let’s start with this: we were rejected. Now, our office is filled with attractive people. All of us would make a nice first date for someone, in a pinch.
But all five of us received an email from Tawkify saying that either we were rejected outright (read: no one will ever match with you) or that we would be placed on a waiting list.
Therein lies the problem. Tawkify is run by just a handful of people. Those people read your profile and find other people that you might get along with. You don’t get to see those profiles; it’s all done behind the scenes. The matches are emailed to you weekly, too. That makes dating difficult.
If you receive three matches on Wednesday, it’s going to be difficult to schedule three dates for the weekend. But, even with that aside, these are all blind dates. Not sure about you, but if we wanted to go on blind dates we’d set each other up.
The profile matching is subjective, based on the arbitrary opinions of the Tawkify “staff.” E. Jean Carroll, a 69 year old woman from the ELLE magazine staff, runs the show. And she’s quite vocal about her feelings toward her customers. She’s been quoted as calling her dating site rejects “creeps” and “assholes…” We don’t think this is a professional way to run a website.
Tawkify reviews from others pretty much matched our opinions. The site was too pricey, too discretionary and too unprofessional to be an option for us and many others.
Tawkify: Is It Legit?
Yes, Tawkify is a legitimate online dating service. Tawkify reviews frequently gave accounts of being booted from the platform for being a “creep” but their money was always refunded. So is it a good option for daters?
People who have trouble finding a date frequently have issues with personal confidence and self-esteem. Tawkify does nothing for these people. Neither members nor clients have any say in the people they’re matched with. That’ could be exciting for some, but for us it was a turn off.
Paying for blind dates is, in our opinion, silly. Particularly when there’s no rhyme or reason as to how those matches are made. The personal preferences of a senior citizen aren’t always in line with those of someone in their 20s, particularly a woman who is so quick to be judgmental of her own customer base.
If you’re looking for a dating website, our suggestion is to opt for one of the free sites out there. Plenty of Fish, Tinder and others are a great way to meet people. Or, as a last resort, join a Meetup group. You’ll meet people with similar interests to yours, and won’t be called names in the process.
