  11. Are your members for real ?

    Absolutely. All profiles are user generated and we are extremely diligent about removing any profiles that are misleading or created for purposes other than finding an activity partner or a date. Our editorial staff monitors profiles 24/7 and will intercept any profile we deem questionable before it enters the community.

    Occasionally, if a profile is approved that turns out to be fake or an attempt to spam, we move quickly to remove it from our community.

  12. Your members seem extremely eligible. Why can’t they find a date ?

    We find that our members do not have difficulty finding dates but instead are looking for a particular type of person who participates in fitness activities. Remember, it’s not about quantity but about quality !

    Sporting Dates members engage in active lifestyles and understand the importance of lifestyle compatibility when it comes to dating for the long run. When you have a busy life, however, you often have much less time to go out every week and sift through countless prospects to find one who is a suitable match. Sporting Dates enables health conscious people like you to find their ideal partner in a safe, convenient environment.
