TheUglyBugBall is an online dating site for those who are “aesthetically challenged” (aka ugly). So the appeal of the site is for ugly people who want to get to know other “great personalities” without the fear of being shot down like they would expect to be on other online dating sites. However, that’s not quite how this site worked out. Instead of being filled with ugly people, the site is filled with people who have deemed themselves ugly. I mean sure, there’s not a whole lot of lookers obviously, but I was incredibly surprised to see that the members were not all that bad. I would say most members are a solid “average” at least. If you’re legitimately trying to meet singles who are ugly, I honestly don’t know where you should look, but this is not the place. This is a place for sad losers with no self-esteem.

What started out as probably an online dating site with good intentions, ended up becoming a niche site for losers. NOT ugly people – losers. People with low self-esteem and no self-worth, who deem themselves “ugly” because they can’t handle the competition of mainstream online dating. This site is just full of sad, pathetic people. TheUglyBugBall is a niche dating site that doesn’t work. Niche dating sites can come in handy when you’re looking for someone who shares your alternative lifestyle, or relates to your needs (food allergies, physical disabilities, diseases, etc.), but if you’re just looking for ugly people? C’mon. You can find ugly people everywhere.
They are also fairly expensive for a niche dating site. In terms of regular online dating, they are basically on par with others, but if you’re going to charge someone for using a site with way less members and way less features, it should probably cost way less money too.
The Ugly Bug Ball is free to sign up for, but you will need to upgrade if you actually want to talk to other members. They have four subscription package options: $34.95 per month for a one month subscription, $23.32 per month for a three month subscription, $20.00 per month for a six month subscription and $13,75 for a one year subscription.
BE WARNED: The Ugly Bug Ball will renew your subscription automatically when it expires. You actually have to make a point to remember to cancel your subscription or they will simply charge you for it again and again until you do!
They also offer individual features called “bolt-ons” which comes at a separate cost. They include things like:
- Search VIP: your profile will be highlighted in search results. ($4.99 per month)
- Read Notification: be alerted when a message you sent has been read. ($4.99 per month)
- Contact For Free: allow both free members and paid members to message you. ($11.99 per month)
- Reply For Free: allows free members to reply to your messages. ($7.99 per month)
