Free online dating sites are a useful alternative to pay online dating sites. Unless your day starts with you taking a long look in the mirror and bluring out,"I need somebody so baad," before collapsing into tears against the porcelain of your little sink, pay dating sites aren't for you. And if you're not already obssessed over your own loneliness, why start now?
If you're a woman, you don't suffer from this problem much. Many online dating sites are free for women but cost men money. These sites are great for men because they attract women, but what value do these sites offer those women? The pay sites' spin on it is that men who use pay sites, well, have money-probably more money than the guys from those free sites. However, all making men pay does is ensure the female clientelle are meeting, exclusively, men who would pay to meet a woman.
Men put money into dating sites the same way men put money into Leila the stripper's g-string-the men know by using more money it'll get them noticed and, hey, who knows? Maybe if I play my cards right, she'll remember that I slipped her a ten and she'll fall in love with me! On pay dating sites, genius marketers have women believing that men paying for their time will be more accomplished than the men on the free online dating sites. But think about it. You're a man, and you pay to go on to one of these sites: you are doing so with the expressed expectation that you will meet someone and hopefully have sex with them at some point.
So,yes. On free online dating sites you have to wade knee-deep through a miasma of misappropriated daddy issues and angry sad assholes who pretend to be carefree funlovers on their About Me page. But at least there's the chance that the free online dating site user you meet may have enough self-esteem that they're not willing to pay for a chance to meet women just yet.
