So what do you guys think? Do you prefer free online dating sites or paid online dating sites? I mean there are definite pros to free online dating sites (them being FREE for one) but with paid online dating sites you're promised highlighted profiles and guided profile questionnaires whcih you may not get with free dating sites....

I've done an online dating site price comparison and I can't decide.

Let me know what y'all think...

cheers!

Well I love this one: http://www.czech-single-women.com/polish-dating-get-to-know- polish-women.html. The site is paid but the quality is pretty high.

I'm keep thinking that on paid dating sites more people and probably more chances to meet someone who are real...you may try best couple site, it's not expensive and members there are real. I like it for now)

Why try those paid dating sites if you can enjoy meeting new people from free dating sites. I checked www.loveme.ph once and I was able to meet my current date today, and we are doing great, though the distance sucks I think were both happy. We hope to meet one day, but not anytime sooner. Surprised

I'd prefer to paid, really. I tried to meet girls on free sites for couple of times but it's too unpredictable: you never know does hot girl or scammer talk with you. On other hand - the biggest sites is good atternetive to paid sites, there are lots of scam but number of real girl is very big too. A friend of mine tried to find girl on paid site for once, but there was only fat wallet hunters - all the girl asked them about his income after couple of messages. Finally he met gf on some a hege site facebbok.com pof or originclub.com don't remember, but he spent a lot of time before met her. Smile

Because these sites are free and open to everyone, you may find that it attracts a large range of different people who are not necessarily looking for a serious relationship.but i paid online sites , in these online dating sites, the people you find are likely to be more serious about finding someone for a date or a serious relationship.

You may try different sites and then make your own decision - chosing a site for online dating is very individual. Moreover, a lot of sites have free trials and different classes of accounts with different functions and dating abilities. I would advice you to check this one - kovla.com/datings/us/brooklyn . Good luck!

After having personally tried nearly all dating sites out there, I realized they are all pretty much the same. And one of the biggest problems I found is that reading profiles is simply not a good way to gauge whether you will be a good match for someone.

Of course, there are the same danger while searching the Internet and online dating. Not all of the applicants for the role of your life-partner will be adequate.
So is paid sites are safe?

Although there are still a lot of dangers in using the Internet, the mottos of paid dating sites sound strange somehow. they say that their site differs from all sites we got used to. Indeed, becoming a member of the paid dating services, you can protect yourself against phishing or spam. But in order to remove all the danger, there is only one way out - manual inspection of each registered user on adequacy. Is it possible to mass website with a huge number of registered participants? Of course not.
There is actually NO difference between paid and free dating site.

Paid websites provide much better protection and more advanced services, in my opinion, but there are good free sites, too.
I suggest you try Nexus Date at nexusdate.com
It's completely free and it offers amazing possibilities for both casual and serious dating.

I have used several dating apps and websites since I broke up with my ex. The thing is that on paid sites I have found people who are there for the same reason I am, on free sites most of the members are usually spammers or fake. It happened several times to waste my precious time. However, I think that you can find your perfect match anywhere... the thing is not to stop looking for the one Razz

I have just found a new dating site, arilove.com, it's free to sign up and they have a compatibility test for matching. Also, still using tinder and match.com.

I agree with previous comment. On free sites there are so many trash and fake accounts. But at the same time I'm not ready to pay 60$ for a account that didn't guarantee anything and frequently simply didn't worth that money. So its up to you!

I have tried tons of different online dating websites so far. I have to say that the best one for me is that from cupid.com I have only some positive experience about it... But I don't really think that it is that important if the website is free or paid. If it is a good one, it is a good one
