Is it necessary to buy coins/
asked by Colleen T. on 8/20/16

NO MA'AM IT IS NOT. In fact I only used the coins when I could get them for free. Under the system that's no longer possible. Nobody takes that sort of thing seriously, and for a woman it's even less relevant.

No. You can earn credit by viewing photos. It does limit the credit you get, but is one way not to have to buy coins. Note: If you do buy coins, make sure it doesn't set you up to have your debit/credit card hit monthly.

Hi Coleen The site is set up to get the member to spend money. I did not buy coins as I was able to message others on the site. However the genuine people are very few, for example I had messages to say someone viewed me of wanted to meet but when I got in touch the ladies had not viewed or requested to meet. Avoid this site, took me a month of complaining to get my money back?

No, just use the carousel game. 35-40 coins a day just saying "maybe" to pictures of prospective dates. You're under no obligation to chat with them.

No I don't think you need to buy coins. By playing carousel you earn 35-40 coins a day. I never had any luck with my search anyway. Good luck in yours

I did not purchase any coins either. Paying for the email and stuff is enough, coins are for buying icons of bears and flowers and stuff, don't bother!

No, it is unnecessary to buy coins. I had an idea as to whom I was interested in already and thus never felt the need for that extra expense.

That is how they have you pay. It never did anything for me except cause me to spend money. And sometimes they are not real people. You will pay for the coins and get one or two replies and then nothing else. Don't waste your money. If you go to plenty of fish website and you will see the same profiles.

I dont buy coins and dont feel its necessary and should not have to being a paid member. Not sure on all the woman whether fake or not, but I have several dates and one I thought was the one but to many problems and used. But I know there are good ones, but you have to go through hundreds for various reasons and really have to work it. I do mean work it. Odds or slim but one can find dates but again, there are so many variables that you can and can't. Anyone with paid premium should not need or have to and site should not not offer to have to or offer. Should come with it. There is no question here.. facts and fairness.

No its not necessary, Just play the viewing game and each like gets you a coin. Literally you can rack up coins by checking yes on everyone whether you like them or no, just to get coins.

If you want to talk to more than one person per day, yes. Otherwise you have to get points from playing carousel. Then people may say they are interested but may not be. And once they get your credit card, they add money with it if you only need a few coins but don't realize it.

Most of these in favor are fake accounts. Don't listen. They want you to buy coins for everything. Stay away from this ripoff.

Yes you do if you want to meet real people. The men on this site only want one thing. If that's what your looking for it's like hiring a prostitute, only a male.
All sites have gimmick, if it cheaper than other sites that means their not out there. For get it, these are all losers.
Paying more mo is usually better sites. Read all rules(if you can) b 4 you pay, !!!! Other wise you stuck for your minimum mo amount. Good luck. Been on quite a few, eharmony the best !
