Thank you for your response - It was very enlightening. As far as FREE dating sites - I still only see the one - the other sites purport to be free - however, they ALL charge once a member attempts to receive email - or chats - or messages from other members. The acknowledgement that a member may have sent you an email is free - but the content of the email is not. So, again. If the FREE dating model is so good - why is there only one site?
