Online Dating: Paid vs. Free Sites
Almost no single person today doesn’t use online dating sites! Because what better way to get in touch with potential dates in modern times?
Yes, online dating has its advantages. But, it also has some big issues—low-quality men just trying to get in a (any) woman’s pants, to name one of them! With all the dating apps out there on the market today, one definitely wonders, which one is the best? How to not have to deal with the bothersome, user men and instead spend time and energy on better matches?
One big way to help discern between men is simply whether the site is paid or not. This ALONE weeds out so many problematic men, it’s really quite amazing! Free sites like Hinge and OkCupid are full of almost entirely bad men. They use these sites as a way to pick up women as if the women are $5 whores on a street corner. It’s frankly pitiful and disgusting. The men on these free sites who seem better and don’t overtly show this about themselves will treat you this way in actuality, once you’re on dates with them. Sure, maybe one in a million on free sites is better-hearted, but because so many aren’t you just shouldn’t use the free sites at all. Period. Some women (usually young ones) think that they shouldn’t have to pay anything for a dating site—and sure, maybe that’s true. But in reality women DO need to pay in order to not have to constantly deal with complete losers and users.
The chances of talking to and meeting good men skyrockets when you are on paid dating sites. Bad men want any girl that will get with them on free sites because they are just trying to get sex, that’s it. Good men have no problem paying for a good dating site. The mere fact that the guy is willing to invest a little money in a paid dating site shows something about him. He has chosen not to go on whatever scummy free site he could find and instead chose a good dating site. Obviously this choice of his alone does not automatically mean he’s a good man, but the chances are much higher that he is. So women: go with paid sites! You’ll save yourself the struggle and sorrow of dealing with bad-hearted men just looking for easy ass.
Paid sites that give good results include:
Bumble users have the option to pay or not, by paying a user can see more about who has liked them, etc. Bumble is a somewhat unique dating app because it puts a lot of the communication control in the woman’s hands. Men can flip through and swipe left/right on women. If a guy swipes right on a girl, he gets put in her “beeline” which is a list of guys she can see who have liked her. She can choose at a time of her liking to accept him and message him (the woman has to be the first one to message in Bumble’s system). Bumble works well in the sense that women don’t get inundated with hundreds of likes and “hi’s” from guys.
A bonus to Bumble is that many people on there state their astrology sign on their profile. That means you don’t need to ask. Remember, it’s good to know the person’s sign because it helps you so much to know how they handle dating and love relationships, learn more about signs here.
eharmony costs more than most paid dating sites but I think it also tends to have the most serious men! These men tend to be the types who are actually employed and looking for something real in a relationship, instead of just playing and jerking women around. Unless you’re going to hire full-on matchmakers, you can’t get much of better dating site than eharmony!
