ManPlay.com is up for review today, and this is a huge gay dating site where you can try to meet some new friends for fun, or more. These are pretty tough to review overall, as we can only visit for a few hours, and can only talk about the site and its features as compared to actually trying to get to know some people. This site is huge, with over 38 million members supposedly, and over 38,000 people online currently. The pricing is pretty difficult to figure out since there are a few levels of membership, and they don't easily dole out that info. Expect to pay around $30 a month if you want one of the higher-up memberships.
Huge database of members.
The numbers here are just staggering. Somehow they've amassed around 38 million member accounts, which honestly seems nearly impossible to me. 38,000 of those are online currently, which is almost nearly impossible. There's just a ton of people to reach out to, assuming those are current, active members.
Lots of people online at once.
In addition to the huge overall collection, tons of people are ready to chat right now. I didn't get much in the way of responses in trying to contact a few, but over 38,000 people are online supposedly at this very moment. There's gotta be someone ready to dirty chat with you - it's just a matter of finding the right person.
Other Good Stuff:
I like the ability to make little personal, private notes on the members here. You can keep track of who's who, and no one will be the wiser.
I don't see a lot of obviously fake profiles here, with professional model photos and a request to view their profile on some other site (that will no doubt cost you extra money).
Site is a bit confusing to get around; too much going on.
The whole design and layout is just too overwhelming unfortunately. I didn't know where to turn first, and even when I thought I had found my way, I'd get more turned around. For instance, I was trying to hit up their basic search, and instead kept getting to some search results page (from a search I hadn't even completed yet). There are so many text menus and random things opening up and blinking that it's just too much.
Many empty profiles.
While there weren't a lot of fake profiles, there are a ton of empty profiles. These people have a username and location, but that's about it. There are no photos, no questions filled out, and nothing to indicate why you should get in touch with them over any of the other thousands of people. I wish it were easier to weed those out, with a simple check box or something.
Watch out for the short video intro that plays on the tour, especially if you're trying to browse incognito.
I got a popup or two while browsing the member's area, which is very unusual. I hate them in tours, but for paying members, it's a ton worse.
There are also a lot of banner ads around, making the site that much more cluttered, and also annoying me that much more.
When checking out the search results, I wish they'd put the profiles with pictures up first. They're all inter-mixed together, and you can never tell when you're going to find some actual profiles again.
It's pretty standard as far as a dating site goes, though at least the member base is huge.
It's hard to get terribly excited about dating sites as so many of them are pretty similar. All of the basics are covered here at Man Play, so you have a decent search, some community features, and nice profiles. There are a ton of people here, though I'm not sure how many are active on a day to day basis or anything. There are a few tweaks I'd love to see made, and I'd also love to see the site redesigned a bit to make things easier to find and use. As it stands, it's decent as far as a dating site goes, but doesn't offer anything too new or unique to get overly excited about.
