It’s time for someone to provide an unbiased review of membership fees on dating sites.  Yes they all say they are free to join and use, but that isn’t really the case, unless you are talking about PlentyofFish.com, which is completely free but does have its drawbacks.


So you can always join an online dating site for free and TallSingles.co.uk is no different.  Joining for free allows you to:

#1. Upload a photo and complete your profile

#2. Search for members and look at their profiles

#3. Receive emails from tallsingles.co.uk informing you of members who have uploaded new photos, new members, informing you that you have received a message and finally at times we have excellent special offers.


So what is really missing here?  Well it’s the ability to be able to contact other members and read emails that other paid members may have sent you.


So why do we have this level of membership?  Well there are many reasons, here are the most important:

#1. People are still scared of internet dating – yes, believe it or not people are very scared of internet dating.  We believe that by giving a free membership you can take a look around, see it’s not all that frightening and upgrade to paid membership if you want to.

#2. Are there registered members on the site that you would like to date living in your immediate area – It’s obviously very important that the site has people registered in your area who you fancy.  It’s not worth joining a site if the one person you fancy lives in Edinburgh while you live in London!  Joining for free allows you to browse the members, run some searches and find out if there are people registered who live in your area that you fancy.

#3. Try before you buy – You can try the site before you purchase membership.  Once you have paid for membership, you can cancel within 14 days for a full refund.  If you cancel after 14 days, your membership will not be renewed but you will not receive a refund on the unused term of your membership.  So it’s always good to try before you buy and be sure that membership is the right thing for you.


Remember you can always join more than one site for free.  You should NEVER pay for membership until you are convinced that know the best site to join.


So you have chosen the site you like the most using free membership.  You now want to contact someone on the site so you sign up to do so.  If you want to take online dating seriously I hope you can now see that you have to become a paid member on you chosen online dating site.  You cannot email members to arrange a date without doing this. But what other benefits does paid membership give you?


As well as the benefits of free membership, paid membership allows you to:

Email other members

Read messages that have been sent by other members

Upload a video profile

Complete a dating diary

Put yourself in the spotlight

Send gifts to members

Chat online

Subscribe to mobile alerts.


So why do we charge a fee for this membership?  Well at the end of the day we are a business and we have costs to cover.  We have to cover substantial advertising costs, so that we get regular new memberships, we have to pay for web hosting, we have to ensure that our payment methods are secure, we need to make sure we have a call centre that can be contacted for free and we have a duty of care to our members.


Are you tall and single?  Why don’t you consider joining tallsingles.co.uk and discuss this type of experience with others?  We are free to join.  A small fee is payable if you decide to make contact with other members, this covers our costs of running the site.  With 1.5 million members all across the UK so there is bound to be someone near you.  Plus we are 43% cheaper than the UK’s best known dating site Match.com*.
