Few people would argue that paid dating sites are better quality than free dating sites. Most of us, however, do not care. We would just rather use a free dating site and keep our credit card securely hidden in our wallet or purse. Did you know, however, that you can use many paid dating sites as if they were actually
? You can; it is true. What is more, you will be happier for using a paid dating site; free dating sites come with big disadvantages. In the next few paragraphs you will learn the reasons why it is best to use a paid dating service for free instead of joining a totally free dating site.
We would all prefer a free dating site. As long as we are able to find a date or a casual encounter we are happy. We can, however, encounter big problems when choosing a totally free dating site.
When you join a free dating service, expect to get a ton of spam in your email inbox. Why? How else will the owner of the free site make money? He or she must make money somehow if they are not going to charge. Their solution is to spam your inbox with offers that require money. Your email address is also, invariably, sold to third-parties; another way they make money.
Free dating sites are positively plastered with advertising banners. You will have seen this yourself; flashing banners, you have won offers, text links selling dozens of different offers. Your enjoyment is severely curtailed by this abundance of promotion.
Almost all totally free dating sites use fake profiles. Has this happened to you in the past? Many of the free sites cannot compete with the big dating sites who have millions of members so they make lots of fake profiles instead. When you contact these fake profiles you, of course, never receive a reply; time and effort wasted.
If you choose the right paid dating site, you can use almost all of the features for totally free, without even having to use a credit card; so put that credit card away.
You can go to any profile and send a message. Of course, you can also receive messages.
The internet is used by every country in the world. If you choose a paid dating site with millions of members chances are good that you will find thousands of people in your town or city. Not only that, but you will be able to search based on whatever criteria you wish: location, age, gender, what they want, ethnicity, height, hobbies.
I hate spam. We all hate it. Paid dating sites will not spam your email inbox. Why? Various reasons. They have a solid reputation to uphold and no one likes a spammer. Enough money is made from paid memberships and minimal advertising. Competition among top dating sites is fierce so they try to keep members (even free members) as happy as possible.
I think I have now made my point clear. It is silly to use totally free dating sites when you can get all those features on a paid dating site without all the spam, fake profiles and advertising, and still not have to whip out your credit card. When you next decide to join a dating site, make sure you get yourself a free account at a big paid site with millions of members. You will be much happier!
