Ok... Now that everyone is opening up here... I did paid a site to meet someone that I had interested in... I dated her... and that all... but when I was going to quit the site... they said they I would only have to pay half price to stay on... and I did for a few more month... but then I found POF... I haven't pay since... and you'll fine the same people here that you'll find at the pay site...

I'm the Queen of online dating sites..paid and otherwise! lol I can answer your questions about most of them in ...ohhhh say ... 1 note! I have charts and statistics and know who joins what kind of sites, and which sites share their profiles, and who allows this and who allows that for free!

Hell, in fact I've even been paid to stay on a dating site because I brought so many paying customers on just to talk with me...and people on the site didn't want me to leave. Can you say....I just can't handle all the pressure or mail! I did!

I've brought several people from those sites to this one too...(bad bad girl lol) and I can proudly say...I've canceled my paying subscription to all of them now, and haven't regretted it yet... Thanks POF!

I was on one site (that i didn't pay for) that sent me emails to my hot mail to tell me when I had mail from a member...I got about three...but when I logged onto the site it would say I had like 30 new messages...I guess the rest are spam????? Guess they don't realize they are making that mistake!!!

I have...... Not that often however...... But how do you afford to advertise this on google addwords, must be costing a fortune, its there all the time.
And i cant see anyone advertising here....

To be completely honest, and done this online thing off and on for the past while, and I've always preferred LL. Don't get me wrong, I like POF, and I've met lots of good people on here....but I've always felt that the fact that just anyone can email me or IM me for free on here has less to do with the fact that I've grabbed their interest as much as they can mass market themselves for free. And some of those unsolicited IM's border on intrusiveness. At least on a site where you have to pay a couple of bucks to truly communicate with somebody, you have a greater sense going in that the other person (if they reply) is genuinely interested.

What I will say about this site, is that I get a kick out of reading the forums, and that more than one picture can be posted at once. That's a definite plus!

I'd be curious to know if anybody feels the same way?

You know if you go to your mail settings you can shut that off right???

I shut mine off because I find it annoying...as soon as the person hits enter it pops up and interupts whatever else you are doing....like IM'ing someone else!!!

Several. When I first started using them, they were all free. As time goes on, they not only charge but allow less and less access for non paying members. I also think many of them "bait" people to pay with disappointing results.

Hi. This is the first site I have been on that is free for men. All sites are free for woman which is toatally unfair. I guess I should have been a woman, NOT!!!! haha Some sites charge men up to 50 dollars per month which is totally unfair. I always thought we were EQUAL. hehe At least I treat women as equals. So I can sleep with a clear conscience at nite. wink wink Have fun everyone. Wilf

Yes, but not for long. Dating sites, in general, are too expensive for what they are. This is the best dating site .... and it's FREE!!
