It definitely seems to be very slow...and on top of that: the guys don't even reply (one way or another), after one actually got the courage to make the first move..pretty lame
Or, there are no real men around anymore
I'm a bit surprised to see so many people complaining that they are unable to contact other members. I believe the whole point is... if someone winks at you, you PAY for a membership and then you CAN make contact. Its very easy really, and the whole point of a dating site IS to generate $$ for the owner, not create a free social community for us.
This site is a business like any other dating site. You get what you pay for... or dont pay for. Posts are reviewed so that you dont place contact info in there and get for free what they want you to pay for.
Websites cost money to develop, promote and maintain. your membership pays for that. It would be great if we could all be on a site where all the options were free, but unless any of you are independantly wealthy and can start one yourself, dont hold your breath.
If your serious about finding someone, you'll either join for a month or learn how to be very, very creativve. ;)
It's still pretty lame. Winks or no winks this is really a rather dead site. They boast they have the largest number of members for any equestrian site, but it looks to me like a little more than a handful and those are not members. It's a great concept to collect the dollars but they're asking a little much a month to get on a wagon train that isn't moving. Let me think on this a minute and I am sure I can come up with something.
A chat site is much needed, What good is wink when you can't reply. Very frustrating if it is some one you like the sound of. A multi chat would be good too so we can share tips and stories You always have more to learn.
You don't need to be a PREMIUM MEMBER to see who has winked at you! Just go to the home page and where is says "you have recieved x winks" - click on the number and it will show you who has winked at you.
