Free dating sites, are they worth it?

Free dating sites, are they worth it?

When it comes to being single and looking for the right partner, it is not hard to realise that dating can be tricky endeavor. With millions of free dating sites and dating apps, it is easy to question why you should pay money to meet singles when you can sign up to hundreds of free dating sites?

It’s not that you won’t meet find potential love on a free dating site, in fact there are plenty of people who do find a significant other from free online dating sites, however the process can be a lot harder and take a lot longer than it should.

In an analysis from PC World, 10% or more of new accounts every day on free dating sites are generally from scammers, con-artists or criminals. This is due to the ease of signup and lack of personal information needed to create an account on free dating sites. This same ease of user account creation can lead to fake profiles and often inactive profiles from those who sign up, create a profile and never actually use it.

The Pew research centre reports that 33% of people who try free dating sites do not actually meet anyone from those sites. One reason may be that those who are serious about finding someone are more willing to part with a couple of dollars if it means it will give them a better chance of meeting a potential partner. Typically, those who are not willing to invest even a small amount of money towards improving their chances of meeting someone, are not as motivated and may end up wasting your time.

Another drawback of free dating sites is the number of sponsored advertisements they have and it is not uncommon to be spammed consistently in order to get you back on their site so they can show you more advertisements. This is how free dating sites make their money.

Some dating sites will sign you up for free but will then try to sell you “credits” in order to get in touch with other members. It is not uncommon for sites to have fake profiles send you messages that you can only read if you pay the site money or pay for credits.

Free dating sites can actually be more expensive, more time consuming and less effective than paid dating services and sites. Whilst you may be able to meet someone without having to pay any money, there are so many challenges and so much more time you need to invest in order to get some sort of result.
