At first it looks like if you want to use the site, then you have no option but to pay, but this is deceptive.
As you can actually click a link at the top of the page that says “I’ll upgrade later, take me back to the main site”.
Just like the one below (unless it has been changed since I wrote this review).
It will only take you about 90 seconds to complete, after which you are presented with a few questions that have been designed to find out a little more about who you are, and the person that you are looking for.
You are also asked to write a little “about me” piece, and upload your photo.
Once you have completed these steps, you are taken to their payment screen.
You can then perform a full search, view members photos, and their descriptions before upgrading to a full membership.
The large majority of members are looking for a relationship for the long-term, this is not really a one-night-stand dating site.
