Fling Dating Site Takes Boston by Storm

We read with great pleasure this article on about how singles in Boston can better their experiences in the dating scene.

Sure, we all like to go out to bars and meet people. It’s life as a social person.  Being social is healthy.

However, there are times we must sequester ourselves in our homes or offices and just get stuff done.  For times like those, we turn to online dating websites.

There’s been one site that has taken the world by storm.  It’s moved into Boston and people are raving about it like they are the Patriots Super Bowl comeback.

It’s a new thing called a “Fling Dating site.”  Basically, it takes the guesswork out of who wants to hook up and who is just there to get a cup of Joe.

We put one of our editors to the test, and this is his review.

The Boston dating scene is changing. Review


Navigating the online dating world can be difficult and it’s not getting any easier. That’s why, when I find a legit dating site that gets results, I like to let people know about it. is one of those sites. I can usually spot a fraud a mile away and I was expecting to find evidence of fraudulent practices at any minute, but the evidence never came. Fling is one of the few genuine dating sites out there and you have more than enough choices whether you want to flirt, date or have a casual encounter. They have a large number of users and, unlike many other dating sites, the users are real and not fabricated by the site. Even if you don’t hook up right away, they have a guarantee that they stand behind.

My Experience

If you are anything like me, you will wonder why it took you so long to try I had heard of it before, but I dismissed it thinking that I would get to it eventually. I didn’t realize that it was a site that truly stood out among the rest. There were a few women who wrote me first, but I didn’t get bombarded with an unrealistic number of messages within minutes of signing in like many other sites I have tried. This is when I began to realize that Fling might be a legit dating site.

There might have been less messages sent to me, but the ones I receive were real. I wasn’t use to so many of the messages coming from real women. The more details you add to your profile, the more likely you are to attract users who closely fit your idea of an ideal mate. Once I learned that and added more details, I would receive less unsolicited messages, but the messages I did receive were predominantly from women with whom I shared a lot of common interests.

What I ended up with was a choice of three women in the first two weeks of using the site. Well, I had many other choices, but these three were the hottest. I found it hard to choose from these women, but my decision became easier the more I interacted with them. Too many choices is certainly better than too few.

Search Options

Fling features all the main search options you would expect from a dating site along with some other, more detailed, search criteria to help you narrow down your search as much as you like. You can indicate if you are searching for males, females, couples, or groups. You can select your desire age range, location, marital status, turn-ons or fetishes, body type, height, picture availability, and unlock additional search filters when you pay for a premium membership. When you find a match that you are interested in, you can click on the quick chat button next to their profile to get the conversation started. It’s sort of like using social media.  Remember to indicate on your profile whether you are looking for a date or a no strings attached affair. This will help you get what you want without as much confusion or beating around the bush.

Cost / Benefit Comparison

A free basic membership allows you to create a profile and view the explicit photos. You must pay for one of the many membership options to use all the features and send messages. A Silver membership allows you to view larger photos, add members to your Black Book, and contact potential matches through instant message, e-mail, and web cam. With the Silver membership; only other paid members can respond to you. Gold membership has the same features as the Silver, but you get premium profile listing and free members can respond to you.

Silver 3-Day Trial: $4.95

Silver 1-Month Subscription $24.95

Silver 3-Month Subscription $16.65 a month

Gold 2-Day Trial: $2.48 a day.

Gold 7-Day Trial: $9.95.

One of the main reasons is so popular is the level of safety. They use secure software to process payments, so your financial information is secure. The safe filter allows you to filter out all of the explicit content on the site if you are not comfortable with being naughty. Fling is a secure site, but you should still use caution when interacting with anyone on the internet and caution is even more important when you meet someone in person.

Our Editors Trip to Isla Mujeres

Ever heard of Isla Mujeres?  Well, you have now.  One of our editor’s took a trip there and wanted to share his experience with the world in today’s blog update. 

Special shout out to Isla Mujeres Vacation Rentals for putting this all together.  They made the process simple and smooth.

Isla Mujeres is a breath-taking island, tucked away from the Cancun Island, just 8 miles away. With its sandy white beaches and clear, calm waters, it is a must-visit holiday resort for you. With its rich Mayan heritage and unbeatable beauty, you can relax and unwind. Before you pack your bags to embark on this breath-taking vacation, take a look at some of the amazing facts about this beautiful holiday destination.

Island of Women

Isla Mujeres is also known as the island of women. This island remained isolated for a long time till it was discovered in 1517. Legend has it that the only inhabitants of this island were priestess of Ixchel and her court of women. And it is this legend that has given the island the name, ‘Isla Mujeres’ or ‘Island of women’.

Rich Mayan Heritage

This island boasts a rich Mayan heritage, dating back over 1500 years. It was part of a Maya province, Ekab and served as a sanctuary for goddess Ixchel, the Maya goddess of moon, fertility, happiness and medicine. The ruins on Isla’s mainland also indicate their rich Mayan heritage. The famous pyramid temple, known as El Castillo, was dedicated to the Mayan rain god Chaac.

Isla and the Pirates

The Isla Mujeres and the waters of Lagoon Makax provided a great hide-out to the pirates. It is believed that famous or rather infamous pirates such as Henry Morgan and Jean Lafitte walked the shores of this very island. Jean Lafitte is believed to have died on Isla Mujeres in 1862.

How it All Started?

The Isla began as a small village, when during the War of Castes (1847-1901), Mayans took refuge on this island. It was initially named Pueblo de Dolores and was known as a fishing village. Although it has a high tourist percentage now, it still retains its old charm and tranquility.

MUSA Underwater Sculpture Museum

The Isla Mujeres boasts the largest underwater museum in the world. It is a work-in-progress and was opened to the public in 2010. The sculptures are created in collaboration with marine biologists and experts to counteract the effects of climate change on the oceans and reef systems. Though the sculptures will change over time, as the corals grow and marine life establishes itself, but this is the beauty of an underwater museum.

A Fishing Paradise

Isla Mujeres is known as the ‘fishing paradise’ and rightly so. The crystal clear waters are perfect for a good catch, even for beginners. From Barracudas to Snappers, you can indulge in this sport throughout the year, though your catch may vary from season to season. An important event is the Island Time Fishing Tournament that takes place in February.

The Turtle Farm

Isla Mujeres is known for its ancestral hatching grounds for giant sea turtles. They lay eggs from May-September in the soft sand, from where they are collected and kept safe at the Turtle Farm. Once they are hatched, they are released in the water, thus playing an important role in the conservation of this particular species.
