The same-sex community can be very daunting to navigate at times. You feel that you’ve exhausted your immediate dating pool. Anyone who knows that you’re a woman looking for a same sex relationship has already introduced you to everyone in their community who is looking for a date.
You’ve decided to jump into the pool of lesbian dating sites, but there are so many out there. There are both free sites, and paid ones. Your first instinct is to try the free ones. After all, you never know who you might find, and you don’t want to have to pay if your dates turn out to be duds.
But do consider the paid dating sites.
Like straight dating sites which charge money for usage or for a membership, paid lesbian dating sites tend to have people who are more serious about looking for a relationship. After all, they have to make a cash outlay, so they are more invested. Therefore, these sites tend to (but not always) have more serious, responsible and dedicated people, who want to find a mate. The free sites tend to invite people who are just experimenting, or who want to see what’s out there without making a huge commitment. By paying a small fee for a membership, you are showing your potential mates that you are seriously looking and want to put in the time to make it work.
You also tend to get a higher quality of mate from a paid site, as opposed to a free site. Highly paid, successful professionals are more likely to make an investment, and if this is what you want, this is where you should look.
