I asked why everyone’s photo seemed so attractive and professional, and was told the women need to have a certain quality of shots taken in order to get on the site, as well as a rigorous process to ensure the same photos aren’t posted elsewhere.The costs of contacting members on Anastasia Date is a bit different than most dating sites, for a couple of reasons.
As well, they operate on a credit system: 10 credits equals either sending OR reading a letter, and it’ll cost you one credit per minute of chat, or video chat for two credits per minute.
You can earn free credits by referring friends (the exact amount was hard to find), as well as by performing certain account functions, such as booking a free tour deposit (1000 credits), completing your profile (5 credits) or viewing the video of one of the ladies (1 credit).
Anastasia Date accepts Visa, Mastercard, Discover, American Express, Pay Pal and Skrill.
Note that as soon as you click “Sign Up” or “Find My Matches”, you’re legally bound to the fine print listed on Anastasia Date, even if you decide you’d rather sign up elsewhere instead – a feature I’ve yet to find on any other dating site.
There were definitely more women in certain areas, and those with less English fluency as well.
I was presented with members constantly along the right side of the screen, each time I clicked, showing me who was available right now for chat or a video call.
Still, the site is inviting, and really easy to maneuver around.
Everything you could possibly want (and more) is listed along the left side of each page, including information about Romance Tours (traveling to foreign countries to potentially meet a mate), Virtual Gifts, ‘Video Dates’, and more.
Some other items to note: Here’s the thing: there’s absolutely no way for me to test this site out as a Canadian woman.
I’ve reviewed, literally, thousands of dating sites over the last decade – this is the first one where I couldn’t try it out myself. I’m always shocked and how much folks get heated up about this site. Then sign up here, or scroll down below to share your own Anastasia Date review and experiences.
For starters, all of the ladies’ emails are monitored by staff, to “maintain the legitimacy and reputation” of the site.
