I saw a good amount of girls that had enough of the same pictures to clue me in that they were the same person, but had a lot of others tailored to the site, and their profiles were very different as well. Most dating websites allowed me to pony up the fee for the subscription or the upgrade, then cancel the recurring payment, and ride out my months worry free that I did not have to remember to cancel it.
Not Christian Mingle; the second I turned off the recurring payments, they shut me down till I turned it back on, and I finally cancelled them the day my subscription was set to renew. The typical Christian Mingle girl is mid twenties to 30 and had the pre-Wall epiphany that men do not marry skanks, so she better get busy making sure she is not seen as one.
If I want pale redheaded Presbyterians with graduate degrees within 50 miles of me, I’ll find all one of them, but that degree of precision is available.
Match is a pay site for anything serious, like emailing, but they let people make profiles for free, which leads to a lot of spam profiles that are fairly easy to discern early on in your time there.
Her profile reads like the bearings on her hamster wheel are about ready to fail, and, although many of them have a kid or two, there’s no “my children come first,” it’s more of an “oh yeah, I had a kid.” A side effect of this being a popular, freaky, free site is the international spam.
I got more visits from chicks from every Asian country except China and their Great Firewall than I ever did Americans.
Use this site if you want to bag some freaky, and consider putting your Johnson in a vacuum sealer first.
Christian Mingle is the polar opposite of OK Cupid.
One of the original online dating sites, E Harmony is purely pay to play; you’re either subscribed or you’re not.
The service benefits from its reputation as one of the oldest and most serious sites, so, theoretically, you’d find older, more set-up women looking for something serious.
It’s a pay site, only a pay site, and only for Christians and those who identify as one (which is not the same thing at all.) Powered by a clunky web design that looks like it came from the late 90s, Christian Mingle is a low-activity place of so-called Christians that, oddly enough, are on the other dating sites as well.
A disclaimer is in order; while I, myself, was on these sites as well, I used the same pictures and close to the same profile.
That being said, if you want to pay for an online dating site, I’d choose this one, and make sure you don’t have a recurring subscription.
