Love comes at a price – and this is good news for online dating sites.
But how do they actually make money in a competitive market?
I joined February 4th, around 7 AM, and received a total of one vote, two winks, and six messages.
The messages were all nice, although one user messaged me three times.
subscription prices start from as little as .99 per month (USA/Canada) and £12.99 per month (UK).
Using your Facebook profile and GPS location, it could find you a mate – or at least a date – with the simple swipe of your mobile phone.
It goes without saying that Ok Cupid has one of the better reputations of more popular free dating websites for having a wide variety of quality users.
However, Ok Cupid has many not-so-great users as well, and it’s not uncommon for women to have the misfortune of encountering them, and in the past, I have as well.
Doing so would bring the yearly cost of the .99 plan down from 1.88 to 5.94.
Young, successful professionals may be tempted to tackle online dating with as much attention to detail as they've tackled their careers.
