So hopefully our thoughts on the matter are a little more objective. Rudder asks us to take with his findings.

We ran a preliminary analysis on our figures over this past year to get a breakdown in the differences between our results on free and pay sites. We would like to collect more data before we try to draw a concrete conclusion stay tuned for a blog on this in the future on this matter, but our early findings are still pretty interesting: So, according to our figures, you're twice as likely to set up a date if you take a proactive approach on a pay site.

These figures apply to paid dating sites with free-roaming capabilities such as Match and Yahoo! Personals… not relationship sites like Chemistry and eHarmony that deliver matches to you and have a guided communication process.

It stands to reason that if you've shelled out your hard-earned dollars for something, you're going to take it more seriously than if you got it for free. Free sites are perfect for playing around, people with nothing better to do can set up joke profiles to amuse themselves, or just set one up to see what the online dating rage is all about and then forget about it.

If, on the other hand, every time you open your credit card statement there's a little sum going to Match or eHarmony, it's another nudge to push you back to the computer and make sure you're getting enough bang for your buck.

Or should you invest more...

One of the big points Mr. Rudder makes in his argument is that the user stats given out by Match and eHarmony don't take into account profiles people don't use anymore, or users who haven't paid and so can't receive messages.

Free sites have the same problem — probably to an even worse degree. The vast majority of the unpaid users on these paid online dating sites are not active. Just use your common sense. If the profile is half-assed and incomplete, you shouldn't be surprised when you don't get a response.

Just as if it's completely filled out and they've been online recently you should presume they've shown Match the money.

Who goes through the painstaking process of completely filling out a profile and then makes the effort to log in every day when they can't even communicate with other members?

But in terms of overall...

In the blog, Mr. One important consideration that he fails to take into account is that online daters are a different breed.
