Free Online Dating Services

Online dating services are plentiful. You can find thousands of sites devoted to online relationships and dating. Finding the free ones can be a challenge. Here are a few tips to help you find the ones that are truly no cost.

The Catch

There are many sites that advertise as free, but there may be a catch to it. Before you sign up for a membership, make sure you understand what is involved. Many sites will advertise as free, but they are only free for a short period of time. Others will offer free memberships, but that will limit what you are able to do on the site. Go online and look at reviews before you commit to a site to make sure you will have all the functionality you want. You can find sites that are devoted to dating site reviews, and the reviews are written by actual users. This can be helpful.

Truly No Cost

Most dating sites will offer basic memberships for free, or a limited time membership for free. If you want features such as video or live chat, you may need to pay extra. Some sites will allow you to earn credits towards these extra features, making it free. Others will allow you to use the features on a pay per use plan. Even though this isn’t technically free, it will save a lot of money if you only use the features every now and then.
