There are probably still some skeptics, but more and more net users are finding out that with the help of no credit card needed dating sites, they are finding all the potential friends, partners, and lovers they have ever wanted right from in front of their computers, and they aren’t even required to pay for any of the services. All that’s left to do is the exciting part; taking time and putting in a bit of effort to find that one perfect match, or at least a few good ones.
How can these dating services afford to operate for free? Numbers play a big part in it: there are hundreds of millions of people who go online everyday, and a large percentage of these are potential members. With that kind of market flowing through their site, whatever an operator loses in terms of membership fees or service charges can be more than made up for by advertisers who are always on the hunt for high-traffic addresses to peddle their wares on. So if you find something that advertises itself as a no credit card needed dating site, one of the first things to look for would be advertisements on their webpages. Any site that purports to be free and which does not even have advertisers should raise some red flags for you. Maybe they aren’t really free and will spring a charge on you when you least expect it and have already put in hours wading through profiles.
Also, advertisements, especially from well known companies, are a good sign that a website is legit, or else these companies won’t be caught associating with them. Of course these are just general pointers on the value of any website that purports to offer what you need. Another activity you should get into first is to visit, or even become a member, of a review site or a board dedicated to online dating, social, and romance sites. These places will have the most valuable information – actual experiences from people who have used the various available free and paid services – although might have to find them. When you do become a member, you can contribute your experiences as well, therefore helping others who are newbies just as you were not so long ago. When one is on the lookout for lasting love and friendship, some good karma won’t hurt.
So why are there free sites, and why are there ones which ask for a fee to become a member? This is strictly a matter of business model, and you can safely pick either of these depending on your needs and resources. One of a few differences is that a paid dating site will probably have much better filters in place so that you as a searcher will have a better ratio of quality profiles to sift through, and only of the particular characteristics you are looking for. Free sites will be more of a free-for-all (which they really are), and you will have a harder time narrowing your search down. Also, paid membership will have value added services, like video chat, moderated message boards, and quick 24/7 assistance for members.
One still has to remember that although free sites may have none of these value-added services and often haphazard filtering, people have been successful with them and continue to do so. If a little extra work doesn’t matter to you, and if you think that the more haphazard and wide-ranging the profiles you see, the more fun it is, then you will enjoy spending your free time using the free service. You have virtually nothing to lose and life full of love and companionship to gain when you join these no credit card needed dating sites.
