So, if you want to enjoy Christmas in the company of that 'special one' then come along and join Mila, Mike and literally millions of other singles at Buzz50uk Dating.
Joining Buzz50 Dating is ever so simple, unlike most other dating sites, you only need to give what details you want, not what the site demands.
Comment: Jan 20th August 2017: I found Plenty Of Fish to be quite good but you are bombarded with adverts, some of which are for very tasteless dating sites!
Free it may be but you pay for 'freeness' in other ways!
You probably already know that Mila and I met in late November 2011 and that one of our first meetings was at the Birmingham German Christmas Market.
Now is a great time of the year to start online dating over 50, so scroll up the page and give it a go!
Most of us would agree with the saying 'You only get what you pay for' so do we expect low quality love if we are only prepared to pay nothing?
I suspect that the answer to that is a resounding 'No' so why do we keep doing it? Free can be be good if you are really lucky but do you want to gamble with love, especially as it may be your last chance for it?
Added 04/12/2017: The free dating sites seem to be falling by the wayside and this seems to be for a number of reasons.
Most of them are finding that they cannot survive from the advertising around the sites which is not surprising as they nearly all we advertising paid for dating sites!
