The other main reason is that romance scammers are getting much wiser and more 'professional' so dating sites need a much more effective and highly trained support team which the free dating sites simply cannot afford.
We all like to get things for free but with something as important as your love, future and security, it seems it is worth paying a little.

Starting a new relationship when you are 50 or over is far more fun than it was the first time round, believe us!
I was once chatting to a friend who had recently embarked on online dating and the way he put it was this: She said how she would spend so much a month on her gym subscription, so much on Sky and so on, I forget the other leisure things she was paying for.
She then said how foolish it would be to expect to get the best from a free dating site when there were other, more professional and safer ones that cost less than any one of her other subscriptions!
Senior dating has become more popular recently as the 'stigma' has slowly disappeared and more of us are happy to admit that we met online and even that we are searching online for a possible partner.
Is it that we feel that we shouldn't pay for love or that everything in life should be free?I have heard of people who use a dating site as a way of meeting casual friends and dinner dates!I will definitely continue to search, message and match as you say and let's see how things go ;) One of the most searched for words that go with dating is free.The good news is that this Buzz50 dating site is completely free to join, search, match and message so it won't cost you a penny until you are sure that it is for you.Now is a great time of the year to start online dating over 50, so scroll up the page and give it a go!Most of us would agree with the saying 'You only get what you pay for' so do we expect low quality love if we are only prepared to pay nothing?
