I’m not gay, but I have gay friends that have asked me to investigate Compatible Partners gay dating site. They wanted to know whether or not it was legit or good enough to join. So, here’s what I did…I decided to help my friend join by setting up a profile for him and managing the dating profile itself. Unfortunately, it was all uphill from there. Here’s a quick overview of things…
CompatiblePartners is a dating website that targets the gay and lesbian community and promises to connect you with members of the same sex for a lasting relationship. They claim on the front page of their website that it’s free to communicate as well. Well, I am here to tell you that they are not very good at finding someone for you. Guess what, communicating with others is not free on this site either!
Compatible Partners is actually an affiliate of eHarmony.com which is another site that has been known to scam its users in a BIG way. Some of the most popular mainstream dating websites like eHarmony and Match.com purchase a bunch of domain names and run multiple sites such as this one to get more people to join their network.
There are red flags that go up the moment you log in, but I took it for a spin so I could confirm my suspicions for the sake of this review. Check out my detailed review below as well as my experience on the site to find out more.
Compatible Partners Review After Setting My Gay Friend Up
I must admit that Compatible Partners is pretty thorough when it comes to finding out who you are and what you like. This is not such a good thing if you check out their Terms and Conditions and see what they do with your information. Whether you fill out your profile manually or connect with your social media account, they reserve the right to publicly display and reuse your information. My gay buddy wasn’t too happy when I let him know about this bullshit. This means that they can easily take all your personal information and all your pictures and display them on another dating site for the purpose of scamming others.
In fact, that is likely where most of the profiles on the site came from. People who sign up for Compatible Partners or eHarmony have their profiles duplicated without their knowledge. They use them to draw you in so you will pay their excessive membership prices. That’s another huge reason to avoid Compatiblepartners.net…the price. This is simply one of the most expensive dating sites I have ever visited and they don’t offer much to make it worth the price and do almost nothing but scam you.
You can fill out your complete profile, post pictures and review your matches, but you are not allowed to communicate with them until you pay the outrageous $59.95 a month for a basic membership. In order to purchase what they call a “Total Connect” membership; you must purchase three months for over $130. That’s a lot of money for a site that puts so much effort into scamming you instead of providing you with a compatible match.
When I read their Terms and Conditions, I also realized that this is another site that admits to sending you messages by both e-mail and telephone. I saw that there was an option on the premium membership where you can contact your matches by telephone. So, I figured, if I was going to prove that it was a scam, I should choose the phone call option. I took full advantage of the features. After all, I was paying so much. I did end up talking to a guy on the phone. However, it wasn’t a great experience.
A lot of the conversation seemed very official and rehearsed and he wouldn’t give straight answers to many questions, especially when it came to meet in person. He seemed to just be leading me on until my membership was automatically renewed. Features There are a handful of attractive features on Compatible Partners, which would be a decent incentive to join if it was not a complete scam.
I kind of liked the Relationship Questionnaire that you fill out to find a compatible match and you also get a free personality profile. They also let you review and select your compatible matches for free. That’s the extent of what you get for free. The negative aspect of using the questionnaire to find your compatible matches is that you are not allowed to search for your own matches. You get what the site gives you and you are not allowed to search outside of that. Also, the relationship questionnaire is almost the same as eHarmony, so it’s based on heterosexual matches.
As you should be aware of by now, the sites part of eHarmony and it’s owned by the same parent company. Here’s the contact information if you need to get in touch with them.

Conclusion: Compatible Partners Is Not The Best Gay Dating Site
The bottom line with Compatible Partners is that they are just a more scam-heavy and gay version of eHarmony. You expose details about your personality to get a compatible match and all you get is typical scamming practices, fake profiles, and messages. It’s not even worth it to try it out for yourself because it’s too expensive and time-consuming to casually check it out. I would definitely avoid this one if I were you.
Wanna know something? A lot of gay people join the adult dating services that I’m using. Sure, they have sections dedicated to gay and lesbian members and believe me, they like to fuck. Some of these people are the very same individuals that are joining the swingers sites to connect with threesomes. They are bisexual or bicurious and they love to bang.
