There’s a lot of good things to be said about online dating. It’s given people the ability to meet other people with the swipe of a finger and a free cellphone app. There are easily thousands of free cellphone apps and dating websites. So you may ask yourself why you should bother paying for a matchmaking service when you can meet so many people for free? Here are some of the big differences between a paid service and a free web platform.
Handpicked Matches Versus A Large Dating Pool
When you sign up for a free website part of the whole selling point is that you have access to a database where you can browse members. You can also send these people messages at your own discretion which means that you can easily message up to a hundred people a night if that’s your prerogative. With a matchmaking service, your matches are usually based on more than a handful of parameters. With a dating app, you tend to get quantity and with a service, you tend to get quality.
Free apps don’t have any screening process. You can join for free with just an email or a linked Facebook accounts. Those are two things which are very easily achieved. With a matchmaking service, matchmakers will meet with the potential client and ask questions before ever letting anyone communicate. Datings apps and websites have faced quite a bit of public criticism for dates that have gone disastrously wrong and have even ended in death. This is mostly due to the fact that if you aren’t smart about acquiring some basic details beforehand and letting people know where you’re planning on going meeting a stranger off the internet can be downright dangerous.
While you can pay for some added perks in the free platforms the basic services are usually more than enough to tide you over. This also means that you’re usually just left with a whole lot of trial and error. Basically, you get what you pay for. With a paid service you’re obviously paying money upfront but you’re also paying with the expectations of receiving some sort of “results”. While a matchmaker can’t guarantee you love they can at least guarantee you someone who meets your dating standards.
