Free dating sites on the one hand offer the equality on many dates, because visitors are encouraged to try. On the other hand, people who are willing to pay for a dating sites show that they are really serious about looking for a partner. In addition, paying to use a dating site also stops people who lie, fake interest, or can't be trusted. On free dating sites you will also find many fakers, or people who are looking for a one time adventure. It has also been shown that about 30% of the users of (free) dating websites are already in a relationship, but try to score a one time fling this way.
Free dating apps only for good looking and successful people
On dating apps like Tinder and Badoo only the young popular people would have a chance. In addition, the age target group is so limited that people who are over 40 years old have little chance to meet these free dating apps.
The Inner Circle is one of the exclusive dating apps that have become very popular in recent years. This is probably a reaction to free dating apps like Tinder and Lexa, which millions of people now use. The American app "Raya" has been popular for a while now, but this app is only accessible to popular people with a lot of Instagram followers. The Raya app is very popular with photo models, artists and other special appearances.
Lately Tinder announced the development of a similar app: Tinder Select, available to those who get the most likes on the normal Tinder app. In other words, a free dating app, only for handsome and successful people.
The cost of a membership is not the only thing you can rely on to when online dating. Paid dating providers can also usually invest more time and effort in recognizing and blocking wrong profiles, spammers and other people who waste your time.
Subscribing is always free to get acquainted with the different options and to access other members' profiles and photos. Thus, most dating sites operate on a freemium basis. This is a kind of limited access, where you only have to pay when you actually decide to make contact with other users and unlimited use of all additional features. For example, in Parship you can create a profile for free and browse through the profiles of other users. But if you want to get in touch with these users, or see who has viewed your profile, you have to pay for that.
On Seniorengeluk, as a new user you can immediately create a profile for free and use some standard features. But only paying users have access to all the features.
The big advantage of freemium dating websites is that it gives you the chance to check if the site can meet your specific needs. For example, after your free registration, you can first browse through the profiles and create your own. This way your profile will be found, based on your interests and preferences, or matched with other singles with similar interests. Once you see singles you would like to connect with on your free trial account you will know that you need to upgrade your account to a paid membership first.
