Unfortunately, this comes at the cost of some convenience features that other dating sites and apps might have had you take for granted. No automatic location services mean manually searching for and setting your location before you can search nearby.
Searching and Chatting
Victoria Milan ups the ante by including things like diet, “best feature”, and even sex drive. Many dating apps will have your matches presented to you. Victoria Milan requires that you search them out. Once you do that, you realize just how good the search options are.
Another way by which Victoria Milan separates itself out from other dating sites is its way of “matching” people together. In short, it does no such thing.
“Matching” is an event, and human minds form narratives around events. When you match someone, you make a decision, and the result that follows feels like it says something about you. What if you match with someone, then end up not liking them? You feel superficial like you enabled a bad personality.
Worse yet, what if you don’t match with anyone at all? Or your only matches end up being spam bots? The event of matching is exciting in the short-term but benaughty customer service creates a negative user experience in the long term. Hence, Victoria Milan does away with it entirely.
Instead, contact with other users is done by peer-to-peer chatting. Users see when you view their profile (as you see when someone views your profile, as well as who it was), and can like, “wink”, or message you.
Liking and winking at users sends them a message expressing your interest without you having to craft a greeting yourself. If you’ll recall, you can also “ask” users for certain information they have not yet filled in. If someone hasn’t stated their education or income, for instance, you can ask for that before engaging.
There are limits on what you can ask for; you can’t ask what someone’s sex drive is like unless they volunteer that information, for instance. But the list of what you can ask for is more comprehensive than the list of what you cannot ask for, so take assurance in the fact that there’s little the site doesn’t cover (or, rather, uncover).
You Should Know About Sugar Babies
One of the details that you might notice Victoria Milan lets you ask about is income and wealth level. There is a reason for this, and a complete overview of the site would not be complete without it.
There is a culture of people, mainly young women, whose aim is to find financial stability as a “sugar baby”. They seek to do this by finding a “sugar daddy”; that is, someone who will finance their life in exchange for a wide range of things, from sexual favors to more domestic company.
If you have any uncertainty about Victoria Milan’s willingness to serve this demographic, look no further than the login/logout page, where a banner ad always directs you to a sister dating site that caters to sugar babies/sugar daddies exclusively. It is safe to say sugar baby culture is safe in Victoria Milan.
It is important that you know about this kind of culture and the fact that Victoria Milan as a platform is accepting of it because it informs the atmosphere of the interactions you have on the site.
The presence of sugar babies divides the site into two groups: Those who expect a sugar baby-style treatment, and those who do not. There are grey areas, but even those grey areas will tend towards one or the other simply by being on the same platform as the extremes.
