Although there are very few free gay dating websites on the Internet today one logical question a gay man would probably have is why should I pay for a dating service when I can easily get one for free?
In most cases a paid gay introductions service is going to be better than a free one for a variety of reasons. For one – if it is a paid dating site the owners of the site have a certain standard of site quality they have to maintain otherwise people will want their money back spread a bad word about that dating site and they will never build their dating business online. In other words if you are paying for it you have a right to be critical and complain and the website owners know this.
With a free gay singles service the person who is running the site may have another full-time job and they run that site on the side. So chances are the quality of the web programming will not be up to par, the number of members will be low, and there may even be a lot of fake profiles. Of course a notable exception to this, although it is not a gay site is a free single site, is plenty of fish. The owner of plenty of fish makes thousands of dollars every single day from Google advertising.
Instances in which a free gay dating site is better than a paid gay dating website
The one exception to this rule is quite often new singles sites will offer totally free membership for the first couple of years. The reason is to build up their membership base. The owners of these free sites that are the exception are very smart businessmen and they make sure that their free dating site is designed for total customer satisfaction in mind. They know that the free members being happy with that gay dating site will spread the word and build membership. At some later time that dating site will then start charging membership fees. A perfect example of this is match.com. Back around the year of 1999 to 2000 match.com was actually AOL’s free dating service. It was one of the only dating services back then but they were totally free. They built their membership levels to respectable levels in and started charging.
There are at this time two totally free singles sites (gay) that are in this situation expressed in the paragraph above. They are relatively new, a couple of years old and their membership is growing exceptionally fast. At the rate both of these sites are growing chances are they are not going to be free forever.
