Free Online Dating

Many people these days are looking for totally free dating sites. However, free dating sites are pretty non-existent, because it costs to run a dating site. Unless a site has a lot of ads on it, it won’t be free. Even if you find a free one, it’s likely a very small site as larger companies spend a lot of time and money on creating user friendly sites, that are secure to use and attract great members.

A site that is well-designed is important as you'll be using the site search algorithms to find people to connect with. Plus, it makes it more enjoyable to use a site that looks nice, is easy to use, and attracts great members.

Whilst online dating isn’t free, it’s most certainly inexpensive. A monthly membership will cost you less than two drinks at a good bar in London.

Free Membership to a Dating Site

The best “free” dating sites are those that aren't completely free, but offer some of their features for free. For example, you will be able to become a member and search the site to see if you can find someone who tickles your fancy – for free. You can also upload a profile and see if people contact you. However, free memberships won’t allow you to interact with other members.

Why are free memberships important? Because they allow you to check if a site a) is user friendly b) has members on there that you like c) has members who seem to be up for contacting you.

In other words, completely free dating might be a myth but free memberships to dating sites are not, and you will want to try them to see if you enjoy a site before signing up.

What’s a Great Free Dating Site?

As mentioned, there aren’t many free dating sites, but when it comes to dating sites offering free memberships, the best ones are honest about what you get for free upfront and what each membership entails. Usually there are various memberships that give you various different perks.

Less respectable sites try to rope people into one cheap membership and then oups, suddenly you realise you can’t unlock most of the features without paying more. That’s dishonest and shows that the company doesn’t really care about its members. Whilst most dating sites have different membership plans, the good ones have a basic membership that literally lets you do all the basic things on the site - you only pay extra for specific perks, not to make the site work properly.

Of course, we think we’re the best online dating site, because we have spent years developing our algorithms, creating a user friendly site, attracting the best members and making sure our security is top notch.
