Can You Use Match.com for Free?

These days, it seems a lot of people expect things for free. This is in part because of the Internet, where a great many things do not cost anything. Examples of free things you get online are some TV shows, news, videos, and consumer information.

 

Online dating is no different. There are several major dating sites, such as POF and OkCupid that are free to use. But a question I often get is, “Can I use Match.com for Free?” The answer is yes, but don’t expect to be able to do much. You can browse profiles and send winks, but to make any sort of meaningful communication, you will need to buy a subscription to the site. That said, the cost is manageable if you buy a multi-month subscription, and can be as low as $24 a month.

In addition to the fact that you can join the site for free, Match.com also offers free trials, which typically last for 3 days (72 hours). During this period of time, you can use all the features of the site, just as paid members do. This is a good time to test-drive the site and determine if it’s a service you would like to subscribe to. The current Match.com free trial is available here.

In short, if you want to date online and not pay any money, you should stick with the free dating sites. If you don’t mind paying a bit to get a better service like Match.com, however, then you should get started with the free trial and decide after that whether or not a subscription would be worth it for you.

Where to buy fragrances online

fragrances onlineI am often asked where the best place to buy fragrances is. I always tell people to buy them online from reputable dealers, but that doesn't mean you should run out and buy your perfumes and colognes from any source online. There are many cheap imitations being sold online, so you need to buy from a trustworthy source.

One option is to use Amazon. A lot of people don't know this, but Amazon screens its sellers and suspends accounts if a seller is not behaving ethically. Therefore, you can be assured that when you buy fragrances from Amazon, you will be getting the real thing. Some people like Amazon's selling interface, while others don't care for it much at all. But if you don't mind using Amazon, that's one of my top choices for buying fragrances. If you make frequent purchases, make sure you also join Amazon Prime, as this will allow you to get 2-day shipping on a lot of the items you buy.

And lastly, there are online perfume and cologne stores. Choosing a good one becomes a bit tricky, but as a general rule I'd go with stores that have been around a while and that have a wide selection of products. My personal favorite fragrance store is affinitymart.com. Whatever store you choose, make sure the store uses proper security protocols because otherwise you run the risk of having your personal information stolen, which is never fun. Hopefully this article will help guide you to your first successful fragrance purchase online!
