If you still cannot process your prepaid card, please contact us with the full card info and zip code and we’ll be glad to run the card through our alternate provider.
We aren’t asking for your credit card or anything; there’s really no reason not to upgrade. Either way, it’s clear that this is a stepping stone for them to start really pushing their paid services, and it comes rather quickly on the heels of buying Ok Cupid for a cool million back in February.
This is particularly amusing because not even a year ago (April 7, 2010), Ok Trends, Ok Cupid’s fantastic research and dating geekery blog, wrote a post titled, “Why You Should Never Pay For Online Dating.” Of course, they took it down after the Match/Ok C buyout, but several sites still link to the cached version, which you can no longer view anymore, apparently. I will not be upgrading my account for a few reasons: 1) The services don’t provide any actual value.
Being divorced for several years, I have tried my hand at online dating, experimenting with a number of different sites, and I know from experience that for someone new to the process, it can be rather intimidating and confusing.
You might be wondering which site is best for you, and if you should bother paying for a membership or not.
