Free And Paid Dating Sites

Choosing a dating website

In our posts we already discussed online dating, how to start your online dating experience with women over the Internet, and how to succeed in it. Now we want to summarize it into a single blog post to help men seeking a woman to date understand what online dating is all about and how to choose a good online dating website.

Choosing an international dating site is somewhat a lottery.

One online dating site may have a large number of ladies portfolios, but among all these gorgeous women you may fail to meet the one woman you need. The next agency you try may disappoint you with service quality or simply lack the necessary tools to really find your soul mate. Of course there are free online dating websites, but searching for a soul mate on one of those is like finding a needle in a hay stack. And with such a rapid development of social networks more and more options open with each passing day.

So how do you pick the right online dating service among all of them out there?

Let’s analyze what these international dating sites can offer.

Every internet dating agency attracts clients, mainly, with their huge galleries of ladies who are seeking men. But not every dating website has that many female clients who register and put up their portfolios. In reality such agencies unite and share their databases in order to attract more male clients. It’s completely normal, after all you still benefit from that as a client – bigger selection for you when looking for your future girlfriend or wife.

Free or paid?

Business models are easy to understand. Either you pay money for access or you get it for free. However, you probably will not find an online dating site which requires you to pay right from the start. It is simply not practical and repels clients. Registration is usually free on modern day dating sites, but membership and services require you to spend cash. The question is “Why am I paying for talking to women? I just find a free website.” The answer is simple – quality.

If you are new to online dating and do not want to pay money for online dating services, then by all means try free online dating agencies. But remember, they do not give you any guarantees. You share your personal data (during registration), but you have no guarantees that ladies you are chatting with on this site are even real. “Free cheese is only in the mousetrap” -, yet you have to always keep that in mind.

Dating industry is a business and the people who own it have to make money and invest in it. If the site is 100% free (free access to women profiles, services are free, and no advertising), respectively, it does not make money. If there is no investment then the site can’t be developed properly. Therefore, free dating websites loose the race in terms of quality. Worst case scenario is that the site owners make money by cheating customers, for example, infecting user’s computer with harmful software, etc.

Therefore, dating agencies which charge money for what they offer are in most cases better. Their owners want you to spend money and still come back for more, so they will do their best to please you: offer you quality services, implement new services, offer discounts if you are a regular customer, etc. Different dating sites have their own means of keeping their customers interested and satisfied.

Also paid online dating sites usually dedicate good amount of their time to security. This means that they do not want their customers to be fooled or scammed, because reputation is very important. Clients are often checked that they are real and have sincere intentions. This is a common practice to maintain a good reputation and avoid being labeled as a scam website.

Ok, so where do you start when choosing a dating agency?

You can go with recommendations of your friends and acquaintances, who have tried an online dating service. If you have no such examples, then search engines will help you, read what other people have to say.

To summarize things – for best services and results you should be searching for a website with large enough database, preferably not a free website, and it must have a wide range of services and good support. Of course, the prices have to be acceptable. Nobody wants to pay fortunes just to talk to women over the internet. Good luck with your online dating!
