With so many free dating online options out there, it's hard not to be sucked into the more frugal option. However, there are many reasons to stay clear of free dating online.
Free sites for you also means free sites for others. Since "others" could be marketers or scammers without any cost, they can sign up and spam message you. On paid dating sites they are able to prevent spam and to verify accounts.
2. Level of seriousness
Chances are that when someone has joined a dating website for money they are more committed to finding someone. Free sites may contain more randomness. The person may be more finicky and unwilling to meet for various reasons. They may be on the site just to cure boredom, make new friends, etc. With free sites it is harder to determine what they are looking for and the reason that they are there.
Joining a dating service is kind of like adding an investment. You are getting the services of specialized matches, which saves you time from leafing through every profile in your area. Another thing to consider is that people that are joining that dating site are putting the same investment into it as you are. You both desire to be successful in the search for a relationship.
4. Frequency of login
There are plenty of times on free dating sites where you will come across a profile and they haven't logged in in over 6 months... and yet they are listed as your top match. That must be frustrating! Because the site is free, the member doesn't feel much obligation to log in frequently, check the mail, or show up at all.
5. Member services
Paid member sites generally come with tons of services for their members. This may be advanced matching, quizzes, advanced searches, etc. This can become extremely handy when you are trying to find that one person out of the many in your area. They may have special messaging features that are not available on the free dating sites, such as web cams.
