Well I recently wrote about the pros and cons for free dating sites and I touched upon an aspect of the two dating models that I believe need further exploration.
How Much Would You Pay For A Good Date?
Think about it: You meet someone online, you get dressed up, book a taxi, go for a meal, a few drinks etc. and voila you've spent a boat load of money on a night out with someone you may or may not see again.
Now if the person you meet is not willing to pay a dating site for their professional internet services what does that say about them and their commitment to finding a new partner?
Each to their own, but that last question is one that stuck in my mind, and when you look at it that way perhaps you will gain a valued perspective.
