firstname.lastname@example.org How much does the site cost?
The site is free while we are in the building and testing phase. After all the bugs have been worked our and we have a solid user base, the site will switch to a subscription website. However, we acknowledge the importance of early adopters of the site and will be compensating them with additional free membership time when the switch occurs.
I don't like subscription-based dating websites. They should be free!
We disagree for two reasons:
- Subscription-based websites have greater and more reliable cash flows which allow for better advertising. Better advertising equates to more users which benefits every user on the site.
- More importantly, we want to run a website where members are serious and committed to the process. We don't want to run a hook-up website. We are looking for members seeking long-term relationships. Charging a nominal fee keeps the riff-raff out.
