Should I Choose a Paid for Dating Site or App?
People tend to choose a paid for dating website or app for these reasons:
1, They have a higher percentage of professional people.
In a smart and slightly expensive restaurant there will be people that can afford this. As a result the people in that restaurant are more like to be more professional, educated and the things that come along with that. Of course this is only an average and individual people may not fit that trend.
On a free site there will be a large percentage of unemployed, non professional and other such people because they cannot afford a paid dating site.. The activity of unemployed people on the site can be even greater, because they have the time to put into doing stuff on the site.
Of course there is nothing wrong with these demographics, but that this reason some people want to focus on dating professional people and this is a reason why some people choose paid dating sites.
2, There are less spammers and scammers on the site
This is for two reasons.
The first is that the extra money they get means they can put resources into more people monitoring messages and users to block spammers and fraudsters.
The second is that the cost of the subscriptions means that it is less economic for the scammers and fraudsters. Also they need a PayPal account or credit card to be able to pay the subscriptions, which is another barrier.
3, Less of the people on there are time wasters
As the users have paid for the site, they do not want to waste it.
There was an experiment where a very famous and well-known artists donated pictures to institutions for free. However he found when he dated for free they were not looked after because even though they were just as valuable, the institutions did not value them.
The ones he gave for free were tattered and worn after just a few years, but the ones that have been paid for, the institutions had looked after and cherished.
On paid dating sites there can still be time wasters, but these are the people that are using it for the wrong reasons. For example a person in a relationship that just wants to flirt, to see that they can still attract someone.
So with paid dating sites, as people have paid for it, they value the membership and make the most of it more.
