Internet Dating Sites, do you get what you pay for?

Do free dating sites offer the same opportunity to meet people as Dating sites that charge a subscription fee?

I have heard from serial online daters that they do note a level of commitment on paying dating sites that may not be present on the free ones. In other words the free sites may contain more people just on the site for conversation or online fun. Whereas putting your money where your profile is, seems to provide more genuine singles looking to actually meet others in the flesh.

I imagine that it is the case than money is an indicator of commitment. However, rapid acceptance of dates is not a guarantee that you find your ideal match. If you spend less time sussing people out online before you meet due to wanting to get value for money then you may find you just waste more time and money dating women or men that are completely unsuitable.

That said, you can never know anything for sure until you do meet.

I have written a few articles now on Internet dating but the key to real success whether it be a free or paying site is to know in advance exactly what it is you are looking for in your future partner. Make a list of their essential characteristics, the things they must have for you to consider them at all I.e. non smoker, specific age range etc. Then make a list of the not so essential but desirable traits, which may just be the icing on the cake such as a particular profession, location or hobby.

When you are approached, you can then go through your list and being realistic check off the points that demonstrate how suitable that person may be for you based on the characteristics you desire in a man/woman. Try not to deviate from your list and those that score highly in terms of the list, perhaps consider them first for a date.

As always whatever you do play safe. Ensure you have friends who know where you are at and with whom and always meet in a public place.
