Would You Pay For Love? Why Pay For Dating?*

free dating sites

As Meatloaf said in one of his famous songs, "I would do anything for love, but I won't do that." I've never dated, been in a relationship or used dating apps or websites, but I don't think I'd ever pay to use any of them.
I kind of assumed that it would be better to pay to use a dating website so that you can get some kind of exclusivity and deal with potential matches that have been deemed suitable, but free dating sites are great and they are advantageous for those seeking love. Paid sites come with their own advantages, but why pay for dating websites, when you can find love for free!

They're great if you're starting out.
The good thing about free dating sites is that they're good to use if you're new to dating in general, new to dating online and have recently become single. If you're not very experienced or it's been a while since you last had a date, then a free website will help you to navigate the dating pool and test the waters, so to speak.

You can seek compatibility.
There are many people who use free dating websites but that doesn't mean that you can't find someone suitable for you. You can find someone who shares the same life goals, worldviews, interests, etc as yourself.

You can still get membership benefits.
As long as you've created an account and filled out your profile, free dating sites can give you membership benefits without you having to spend a penny.

You can vet people.
Even though paid dating sites strongly vet people, allowing for exclusivity, free dating websites have filter options available so that you can search and vet people and weed out those who are unsuitable. Of course, when dating, you need to make sure you have your wits about you. Read more about safely dating online.

Free dating websites are secure.
Speaking of dating safely, free dating sites are secure so you're not likely to have your personal data compromised. Plus, many sites have steps that have been put in place to protect users from toxic behaviour such as harassment.

You can find love for free!
To reiterate the point once again, why pay for love when you can get it for free! Before the days of the internet and internet dating, people would normally court each other for free and these days you could easily meet someone via social media - for free - or in real life - for free - so why should online dating be any different?

It's a lot of fun!
You don't need to pay for online dating to have a lot of fun with it. Online dating allows you to connect with people, test the waters and find love, and you can enjoy all of the perks without having to drain your bank balance.

Find love and have fun - for free!

Would you pay for love? Have you ever used free dating websites?
