WHAT THEY SAY: Welcome to a brand new service catering to ambitious and attractive girls seeking successful and generous benefactors to fulfill their lifestyle needs. Established Men is the premier online dating service that connects Young, Beautiful Women with Rich, Successful Men!
It is 100% free to join EstablishedMen.com. You can publish a profile to our community and conduct searches to see the types of members who have joined. You can also send free flirts whether you are an Established Man or a Perfect Princess. For a Princess, it is also free to send messages, chat and even send virtual gifts; however if you are a true Established Man and wish to utilize our proprietary chat, messaging or gifting functionality, you need to become a paying member of EstablishedMen.com after your trial is over.
WHAT WE FOUND: Established Men is free to join and you'll like this service to meet really beautiful women. With a lot of women for every male member (not confirmable) you'll register and begin your membership as soon as you confirm your email address. This took 24 hours for us. During this time you can still complete your profile and search/browse the women's profiles but you won't be able to send any messages or flirts until you confirm your email address.
For Men: Free to join, post your profile, add pictures and search/browse the women's profiles. You can create and leave a voice message for women to listen to and with the voicemail system you can either call in to hear messages or hear them online. It's free to send a limited number of messages and flirts during your trial but you'll need to upgrade your membership to read and reply to messages as well as sending virtual gifts to the women that interest you.
For Women (called "Perfect Princesses"): Free to join and you'll have complete access to all features as soon as your profile is confirmed, usually about 24 hours. That includes sending and replying to messages, sending flirts, creating a voice mail message and listening to the men's messages too.
We didn't see anywhere that you need to confirm your identity or even your personal information, that should be considered a big negative for Established Men.
The navigation is easy to
use, which is good, but the Frequently Asked Questions needs to be
filled out better, there isn't any details on what a membership
allows and when you need to upgrade in the FAQ. Here is an example
(spelling mistake intact:
What do I do After I Sign Up?
After you sign up you should complete your profile by adding photos, and providing additional details that members will find enticing. You can edit your details at any time for no charge. Then you are ready to use the Search feature to locate members who are online and ready to chat right now by searching those that are 'chat ready'. If you find someone you like, send them a flirt or a collect message. Our reasearch has shown that completing your profile significantly boosts your chances of finding success."
Your trial period: no where on the website is explained what your trial period is and the best we could figure out is that your trial period allows you to post your profile, add pictures, search and browse the women's profiles. You can't do anything until your email address is confirmed, so watch your inbox for the link to use. As well, you're locked out of any of the basics to contacting women, even if knowing that your "free trial" or "guest membership" allows anything at all other than just looking around. There isn't any explanation to what the chat feature is or how to use it, how to send a gift and how many credits it costs, what type of flirts are available to be sent, feature information is really lacking on the site. You'll need to discover this on your own as you use the site.
WHAT YOU'LL FIND: Established Men has been created for one purpose, to bring beautiful women to rich men. Free to join, completely free for women, men must upgrade their membership to activate certain features available. Free trial period allows men to send flirts and messages. Straight members only.
