“I think this app is very cool as I found many people through it. I went through some weird profiles with fake or vulgar photos, others were freaks and the administrators don’t censor anything. But if you learn how to ignore the odds, you will quickly find what you need. I think Mingle 2 meets people’s expectations and can be called good. Of course, it’s more for casual sex, but I am ok with that. Some guys were nice enough to keep on seeing them, just it wasn’t my priority. Also I didn’t meet any abusive people and I think it’s a plus for online dating. thanks Mingle 2.” (Tory, 29, Calcutta)
Mingle 2 is a dating app mostly popular for its free features such as chat and messaging. It’s well-designed and stylish but not trendy enough to attract the late teens and very young folks. Also it isn’t secure enough for a sensitive audience. The Captcha against bots is added only recently and many profile photos are fake and/or containing nudity. Which is also an obstacle for older people, except perverts. There’s no pre-moderation or banning that would make things better. Customer support is also weak and customers should only rely on their former experience with online dating.
One should know that Mingle 2 isn’t suitable for online dating, for 2 reasons: the majority of users are from the US and it searches by exact geolocation. It is mostly used for local hookups. However, the matching system is rather strong and the database within the US is big enough so the app can be used for serious relationships too.
Some features are innovative or at least show the developers’ care about customers. It’s already a big advantage in comparison with many apps that cause only scam and fraud. However, although the owners of the app may not have bad intentions, a weak security level creates the favourable ground for scammers that register and cheat people for money. It’s a frequent situation on dating apps, but it’d better be avoided.
In general, we would make a summary that Mingle 2 is “not bad” and can be recommended to 25 – 40 y.o. people who already got some experience in online dating and could keep themselves safe here too. It has enough interesting and effective features to satisfy the most demanding user and many succeed in finding partners via it, either for casual affairs or something more profound. However, the communication there is rather frivolous and sex-oriented.
Our rate is “so-so” but rather high than low, and the biggest advantage of the app is its free status. Therefore, we recommend it to students and older people who don’t like a commercial dating.
