Many daters join a site for free and never take out a subscription; those that do pay, on average, £28 a month.Dating sites vary widely in their charges and in what they offer in return.Now what other dating site offers that sort of support?

I have heard of people who use a dating site as a way of meeting casual friends and dinner dates!

I will definitely continue to search, message and match as you say and let's see how things go ;) One of the most searched for words that go with dating is free.

I bet that you are not surprised at hearing this but why do we want something that is so important to be free?

Is it that we feel that we shouldn't pay for love or that everything in life should be free?

The other main reason is that romance scammers are getting much wiser and more 'professional' so dating sites need a much more effective and highly trained support team which the free dating sites simply cannot afford.

We all like to get things for free but with something as important as your love, future and security, it seems it is worth paying a little.

Added 04/12/2017: The free dating sites seem to be falling by the wayside and this seems to be for a number of reasons.

Most of them are finding that they cannot survive from the advertising around the sites which is not surprising as they nearly all we advertising paid for dating sites!
