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 !
