Asian single Euro higher ahead of Trichet speech
The euro rose in Asian trade on Monday on bargain buying after falls late last week and as regional equity market gains buoyed risk appetite, dealers said. 2010 Asian Games – Table Tennis / Men’s Single Final / Wanghao vs Malong 1/4
If women are said to judge men based on income, why are so many Asian men single?
The world makes it sound like all women care about in a man is money and then that he is loving.
IF that is the case why do Asian men have the highest single male status among men of all races? Plus they tend to be the most financially secure.
My theory is looks/sexual attraction play a more important role in relationships than anything else.
P.S, more women find black men desirable, and they have a high sexual attraction rate and lower income on average
First off, where do you get the idea that Asian men are the highest single male? If they are single, it’s by choice. They want to focus on their careers first and get a girl later. Can’t have romance without finance!
It’s not based on income because in America Asian men tend to make a little more compared to any race on average (this is a generalization of course).This is because so many have six figure professional careers.
It’s about social status. American media is pro white consumer (even though white will no longer be the majority in America). Weird isn’t it? The same media treats Asian men as foreigners and not as Americans.
In general, women care a lot about social status. It’s the superficial things that matter to them. How high-school. Since Asian American men are scene as second class citizens, they are not the most popular race.
I’m Asian and I don’t really care about that stuff. If an American women is gonna judge me because of what’s in style then they aren’t worth my time. They are followers and not leaders and they are letting their society control their sexuality.
I will always accept women of any race who gets it. Who aren’t pre-occupied with race or social status.
Jorge Majfud: A humanist vision considers history to be a human product, which is to say, a product of the freedom of its individuals and the diverse groups that have enacted it and interpreted it. An anti-humanist vision asserts that, on the contrary, those individuals and those groups are the result of history itself, and their freedom is an illusion. If you will permit me an artificial restriction within this possible spectrum, where do you situate yourself?
Eduardo Galeano: Based on what I have experienced in my life, I have the impression that we make the history that makes us. When the history that we make comes out crooked, or is usurped by the few among us who rule, we blame it on history.
J. M.: In this view there is no room for materialist determinism or for any kind of religious fatalism…
E. G.: Fatalisms are comforting, they allow you to sleep soundly, fate is inscribed in the stars, history moves along by itself, don’t be bitter, one must either accept it or accept it. Fatalisms lie, because if life is not an adventure in freedom, someone should come and explain to me whether living is worth the trouble. But notice: the enlightened ones lie also, the select few who are attributed the power to change reality by touching it with their magic wand: and if reality does not obey me, it doesn’t deserve me.
J. M.: If the time of modern revolutions, that is, of abrupt and violent revolutions has passed, is it progression or resistance that is the better alternative in our times?
E. G.: Who knows how many worlds there are in the world, and how many times there are in time. History walks with our feet, but sometimes it walks very slowly, and sometimes it seems motionless. At any rate, when the changes come from below, from down in the depths, sooner or later they find their way, at their own pace. From below, I mean, from the foot, like in the Zitarrosa song. The only things made from above are wells.
J. M.: Your latest book Espejos (Mirrors) represents an effort that is both creative and archeological and covers a vast geographic and temporal space. Which periods of history do you believe would win first prize for cruelty and injustice?
E. G.: There are too many favorites in that championship.
J. M.: Okay, more to the point, could you sum up cruelty in an image, in a situation that you have experienced?
E. G.: It happened to me years ago, in a truck that was crossing the upper Paraná. Except for me, everyone was from that area. Nobody spoke. We were packed closely together, in the bed of the truck, bouncing around. Next to me, a very poor woman, with a baby in her arms. The baby was burning up with fever, crying. The woman just said that she needed a doctor, that somewhere there had to be a doctor. And finally we arrived somewhere, I don’t know how many hours had gone by, the baby hadn’t cried for a long time. I helped that woman get down off the truck. When I picked up the baby, I saw that it was dead. The killer who had committed this cruelty was an entire system of power, and was neither in prison nor travelling around on rickety old trucks.
J. M.: With memories like that one we should stop here. But the world keeps turning. Do you believe that the pre-Colombian past has survived so many years of colonization and modernization, enough to define a Latin American way of being, of feeling, and even of thinking?
E. G.: For centuries, the gods have come, who knows how, from the American past and from the African jungle and from everywhere. Many of those gods travel with other names and use fake passports, because their religions are called superstitions and they continue to be condemned to the underground.
J. M.: Are we witnessing the end of capitalism, of a paradigm based on consumerism and financial success, or is this simply one more crisis which will end up strengthening the system itself, the same hegemonic culture?
E. G.: I frequently receive invitations to attend the burial of capitalism. We know quite well, however, that this system – which privatizes its profits but kindly socializes its losses, and as if that weren’t enough convinces us that that is philanthropy – will live more than seven lives. To a great degree, capitalism feeds off of the discrediting of its alternatives. The word socialism, for example, has been emptied of meaning, by the bureaucracy that used it in the name of the people and by the social democracy that in its name modernized capitalism’s look. We know that this capitalist system is managing quite well to survive the catastrophes that it unleashes. We don’t know, on the other hand, how many lives its main victim – the planet we inhabit, squeezed to the last drop – will be able to live. Where will we move, when the planet is left without water, without land, without air? The company Lunar International is already selling plots of land on the moon. At the end of 2008, the Russian multimillionaire Roman Abramovich made a gift of a little plot to his fiancee.
J. M.: Perhaps he intends to be the first man to give a piece of the moon to his wife, which turns out to be a kind of romantic capitalism. Do you believe that if China, for example, had a hegemonic economy it would quickly become a new empire, colonialist and dominating like any other empire?
E. G.: If I were a professional prophet, I would die of hunger. I’m not even right in soccer, and that is something I know something about. All I can say to you is what I can see: China is putting into practice a successful combination of political dictatorship, in the old communist style, with an economy that functions at the service of the capitalist world market. China can thus provide an extremely cheap workforce to U.S. enterprises like Wal Mart, which bans unions.
J. M.: Speaking of which, on the most recent “black Friday,” the one day of the year that the large retail chains in the U.S. sell at cost, an avalanche of shoppers couldn’t wait for the doors to be opened at one of those Wal Marts and it ran over an employee. The man was crushed to death… Despite all of this absurdity, can we think that humanity finds itself in an improved state of individual rights and of collective conscience? What is best about our times?
E. G.: In the 20th century, justice was sacrificed in the name of freedom, and freedom was sacrificed in the name of justice. Our time is now the 21st century, and the best it has to offer is the challenge it presents: it invites us to fight to assist the reunion of freedom and justice. They want to live real close to each other, back to back.
J. M.: Can we compare the appearance of the Internet with the revolution produced by the printing press in the 15th century?
E. G.: I have no idea, but it is important to remember that the printing press was not born in the 15th century. The Chinese had invented it two centuries earlier. In reality, the three inventions that made the Renaissance possible were all Chinese inventions: the printing press, the compass, and gunpowder. I don’t know if today education has improved, but before we used to learn a universal history reduced to the history of Europe. From the Middle East, nothing or almost nothing. Not a word about China, nothing about India. And about Africa, we only knew what professor Tarzan taught us, and he was never there. And about the American past, about the pre-Colombian world, some little folkoric thing, a few colored feathers… and ciao.
J. M.: What is the greatest danger of technological progress in communication?
E. G.: In communication, and in everything else. Machines are no saints, but they are not to blame for what we do with them. The greatest danger lies in the possibility that the computer can program us, just like the automobile drives us. With frightening ease, we become instruments of our instruments.
J. M.: As a writer and as a reader, what kind of reading occupies most of your time these days?
E. G.: I read everything, starting with the walls that accompany my steps through the streets of the cities.
J. M.: Are cruelty and injustice the greatest provocations for the literature of Eduardo Galeano?
E. G.: No. If that were the case, I would have already fallen ill from unmitigated sadness. Luckily I am a busybody, curious by birth, and I am always seeking out the third bank of the river, that mysterious place where humor and horror meet.
J. M.: Why do you think our times will be remembered in the centuries to come?
E. G.: Will be remembered? Will there be centuries to come? May God hear you, and if God is deaf, may the Devil hear you.
J. M.: Eduardo, do you believe the world will move in the direction of a greater balance of its geographical, social and cultural divisions or, on the contrary, are we condemned to repeat the same forms of what we today consider physical and moral violence?
E. G.: Condemned, we are not. Fate is a challenge, although at first sight it might appear to be a curse.
J. M.: Does an improvement of our present lie mainly in the deepening of humanist values from the European tradition, or in a revaluation of a lost origin in the “peripheral” nations?
E. G.: The European tradition is not enough. We Americans are the children of many mothers. Europe yes, but there are also other mothers. And not only the Americans. All the little humans, everybody is much more than what they believe they are. But the earthly rainbow will not shine, in all its brilliance, as long is it continues to be mutilated by racism, machismo, militarism, elitism and all those isms that deny us the fullness of our diversity. And by the way, it is fitting to clarify that the humanist values of the European tradition were developed while Europe was exterminating indigenous people in the Americas and selling human flesh in Africa. John Locke, the philosopher of freedom, was a shareholder in a slave-trading enterprise.
J. M.: Yes, somewhat like the imperial democracies, from ancient Athens to the United States. But does that mean that history always repeats itself?
E. G.: She doesn’t want to repeat herself, she doesn’t like that one bit, but very often we oblige her to. To give you a very current example, there are parties who come into the government promising a program of the left, and they wind up repeating what the right wing did. Why don’t they let the right continue doing it, since they have the experience? History grows bored, and democracy is discredited, when we are invited to choose between one and the same.
J. M.: What role do “non-organic” intellectuals fulfill in society today? Do they continue to be, at least a few of them, a critical and provocative force?
E. G.: I believe that writing is not a useless passion. But that generalization, “intellectuals,” organico or non-organic, doesn’t look much like the real world. It takes all kinds to make the world. In my case, I can tell you that I work with words, that I am totally useless otherwise, and that is the only thing that I do more or less well, and that it seems to me, based on my own and other’s experience, that the act of reading is a secret, and sometimes fertile, ceremony of communion. Anyone who reads something that is really worth the trouble, does not read with impunity. Reading one of those books that breathe when you put them to your ear, does not leave you untouched: it changes you, even if only a little bit, it integrates something to you, something that you did not know or had not imagined, and it invites you to seek, to ask questions. And more, still: sometimes it can even help you to discover the true meaning of words betrayed by the dictionary of our times. What more could a critical consciousness want?
J. M.: But contemporary writers tend to avoid that word, “intellectuals.” Why?
E. G.: I will answer for myself, not in the name of “writers,” which is also a dubious generalization. I write wanting to speak and express myself in a language that issentipensante (feeling-thinking), a very precise word taught to me by fishermen of the Colombian coast of the Caribean sea. And for that reason, precisely for that reason, I don’t like at all to be called an intellectual. I feel like I am thereby turned into a bodiless head, which is also an uncomfortable situation, and that my reason and emotion are being divorced from one another. One supposes that an intellectual is someone capable of knowing, but I prefer someone capable of comprehending. A cultured person is not someone who accumulates more knowledge, because then there will be nobody more cultured than a computer. A cultured person is someone who knows how to listen, to listen to others and listen to the thousand and one voices of the natural world of which we are a part. In order to speak, I listen. I write on a round-trip journey, I pick up words that I return, stated in my method and manner, to the world from which they come.
J. M.: Speaking of which, what is your narrative technique, that is, your writing habits and behaviors?
E. G.: I have no schedules. I don’t make myself write. In Santiago, Cuba, an old drummer, who played like the gods, taught me: “I play” – he told me – “when my hand itches.” And I paid attention. If I don’t itch, I don’t write. In literature, like in soccer, when the pleasure turns into duty, it becomes
something pretty similar to slave labor. The books write me, they grow inside of me, and every night I fall asleep thanking them, because they allow me to believe that I am the author. And having said this I will point out to you that I write each page many times, that I scratch out, I suppress, I re-write, I tear up, I start over again, and all that is part of the great happiness of feeling that what I say is similar to, and sometimes very similar to, what my pages want to say.
J. M.: Your books after the military dictatorships in Uruguay and Argentina, after exile, are different in style. Or perhaps they deepen one characteristic: your gaze continues being that of a non-conformist rebel, but your voice becomes more lyrical. If I remember correctly, it was Jean-Paul Sartre who said that a writer’s technique transmits his conception of the world. How would you define your style? Does it reflect your perception of the world or, perhaps, your aspirations about it, or is style something accidental, a form of doing things that comes from a history of aesthetics, from an influence of the adolescent years?
E. G.: My style is the result of many years of writing and erasing. Juan Rulfo used to tell me, showing me one of those pencils that you now almost never see: “I write with the graphite in the front, but I write more with the back part, where the eraser is.” That is what I do, or I try to do. I try to always say more with less.
J. M.: One common element of committed literature, of the revolutionary utopias up until the seventies, from the years prior to the dictatorships in South America, seems to be happiness. As an example to illustrate this we could make an exhibit of photographs of the severe faces of the Pinochets, on one side, and of the smiling faces of the Che Guevaras on the other. Does a connection exist between the “aesthetics of sadness” of the literature of the 20th century and society’s conservative forces? In what degree is happiness, the Epicureanism of which Amerigo Vespucci spoke with reference to a certain image of native Americans, subersive?
E. G.: I will return to the Colombian coast, and I will tell you that there, the worst insult is amargao (a bitter person). Nothing worse can be said to you. And not without reason, because at the end of the day, there is nothing in the world that doesn’t deserve to be laughed at. If the literature of denunciation is not, at the same time, a literature of celebration, it distances itself from life as lived and puts its readers to sleep. Its readers are supposed to burn with indignation, but they are nodding off instead. It frequently occurs that the literature that claims to speak to the people, only speaks to those who are already persuaded. Without taking any risks, it seems more like masturbation than the act of love, even though according to what I have been told the act of love is better, because one gets to know people. Contradiction moves history, and the literature that truly stimulates the energy of social change helps us to find the secret suns that every night conceals, that human feat of laughing in the face of the evidence. The Judeo-Christian heritage, which so praises pain, does not help much. If I remember correctly, in the entire Bible not a single laugh is heard. The world is a vale of tears, the ones who suffer the most are the chosen ones who ascend to Heaven.
J. M.: How do you imagine the world in fifty years?
E. G.: At my age, I imagine that in fifty years I will no longer be here. As you can see, I have a prodigious imagination.
J. M.: Onetti once said that he wrote for himself. Would Galeano write if he had the bad fortune to be the sole survivor of a world-wide catastrophe?
E. G.: The sole survivor? Uy! I would die of boredom. Perhaps I would write anyway, because I have the vice, but writing for nobody is worse than dancing with your own sister. Onetti got mad at me one night when I committed a juvenile insolence. He told me that, that he wrote for himself, and I proposed to carry to the Post Office for him those letters for Juan Carlos Onetti, Gonzalo Ramírez Street, Montevideo, etc., etc. He got pissed off. He got pissed off because he was lying, and he knew it quite well. Anyone who publishes what they write, writes for others.
J. M.: What would you do differently if you had the experience and opportunity to do it all over again? What does Eduardo Galeano regret?
E. G.: I have no regrets. I am also the sum of all the times I put my foot in my mouth.

Adventure in the Andes: a hike in Ecuador’s highlands
For five hours, we’d hiked through rain, mud, eucalyptus forests and corn and fava bean fields in the hilly Andean highlands a few hours north of Quito. Here, nearly 3,000 metres high along the equator, the sun rises and sets at 6 o’clock. Every day. All year.

To do a personals dating ads or not to do a personal dating? (do they work and help)?
I’ve had friends who have complete success on match.com, but I’ve also heard stories of how disappointed others have been. I think it’s best if you go in with an open mind. Don’t expect to find your knight in shining armour, just go in with the attitude that l might not find exactly what I’m looking for, but maybe I’ll meet some interesting people along the way, you will find the most success. Dating is a lot like business, the more networking you do, the higher your chance to suceed.
In the northern part of the Caribbean lies a country called the Dominican Republic. When Christopher Columbus discovered this country, he immediately named it Little Spain, for it was the most beautiful place of The New World. Such an amazing place only had room for beautiful people and this is why, centuries later, Dominican women still remain some of the most beautiful women on Earth.
Nowadays, when we are free to marry whomever we desire, men do not have to limit themselves to admiring Dominican women’ s beauty; they can actually get to know and marry a Dominican lady. There is one very simple way of meeting Dominican women and that is using a Dominican women agency. The use of such an agency can lead to friendship, true love and even Dominican women marriage.
A dating agency offers matchmaking services to people of all ages and nationalities. If you want to meet a woman, if you need a person to talk to or if you are looking for a bride, you can use a dating agency. If you are looking for a particular lady, for example a Dominican lady, then you can use a Dominican women agency. Nowadays, there are many dating agencies, but only few of them actually have the experience necessary in this type of business. When love or marriage is on the line, only experienced and trustworthy agencies must be used. For example, if you like Latin ladies, then you should probably choose a Dominican women agency or a Latin women agency. By doing so, you can be certain that you will find only the best and most beautiful Latin ladies. Dominican women marriage is more of a certainty when using this type of agency.
Of course, another way of meeting Dominican ladies is visiting their country. However, this method is probably too demanding for most men. They are either caught up with work and do not have the necessary time to make the trip or they do not have the necessary resources for such a trip. Dominican ladies could also be living in the same city as you, but chances of meeting a single Dominican woman in your country or town are very low. Therefore, the most efficient way of meeting Latin ladies still remains a Dominican women agency. These types of agencies are very reliable, they save you a lot of time and your chances of finding your partner or even a bride are very high. Whether you are looking for a pen pall, a friend, a relationship or a wife, a Dominican women agency can offer you that. Dominican women marriage is a certainty if you use a Dominican women agency, because all women who join such agencies are family oriented.
There are several ways of meeting Latin women, but some of them are a little difficult and others are just in the hands of faith. However, there is one way that does not depend on faith and it is not at all difficult. Using a Dominican women agency is simple, less time consuming and has great results. Dominican women marriage is one of the results of using a dating agency. The only catch is to know which agency to choose.

Online Dating Scams: What to Look for and How to Protect Yourself
If you are looking for love online, you may well find it. Every day, more and more people are joining the search, and thousands can now testify to happy, lasting relationships that have formed as a result. Sadly, thousands more have fallen victim to online dating scams.
Here are secrets to spotting these scams, as well as specific ways you can protect yourself.
Online dating scams take a variety of forms, but they have one thing in common: money. If you have met a genuine person in your search for online romance, it should be a long time before the subject of money comes up.
But people who may be working a scam will try to raise the issue as soon as possible. They may take a few weeks to try and seduce you, often through email and chat, but they can afford to invest only so much time in any one possible target.
So, if the subject of money comes up relatively quickly with a prospective partner, you should be wary.
The subject of money can take many forms. Some people may will ask you straight out for cash donations (often to help them deal with supposed emergencies) but others will be more subtle.
Often the money you stand to lose will take the form of payments to what seems like a third party, as in telephone online dating scams. Telephone dating scams often involve the prospective partner asking you to call him or her on a particular number, which is secretly charging you several dollars per minute. These scams can cause you to run up huge phone bills, but because you do not see your bill immediately you may not realize what is going on until you are already in serious trouble.
One of the most common scams is a variation on the ‘Nigerian’ scam, which you may well have encountered before in email. In this online dating scam, the person whom you have an interest in, who often claims to be living in an African country, will tell you that he or she has received some money in the form of money orders that can not be cashed there. The person will then ask you to cash the money orders in your bank and wire the money. The money orders will be forgeries and you may even find yourself charged by your bank for submitting them; however, they can take several weeks to process, so many people fall for these online dating scams and wire the money before they find out what is truly going on.
If the person you have met online lives far away, one of the most tempting ways to spend money is on travel, to enable them to visit you. Many online dating scams take advantage of this with set-ups that enable this prospective partner to pocket the money.
You can avoid these online dating scams by never sending cash and never allowing the other person to determine exactly what travel arrangements or agencies will be used.
While you should not allow these scams to put you off when looking for love online, it is important to be aware of them. Remember that any genuine person you meet will know about these scams, too. If they care about you, they will respect your need to be careful.

Looking For Asian Woman For Dating? Where To Find And Meet Asian Girls.
If you are attracted to Asian girls and want to meet an Asian woman for dating and relationship it can be difficult to find them depending upon where you live. I live in the eastern part of the United States and let’s just say they are scarce. Here is a listing of places you can go online and off-line to meet single Asian girls.
The best off-line locations if you are looking for Asian women for dating
Art galleries and museums – Oriental women are very cultural and they usually like things like fine art. You can look for your local newspaper for art shows. This makes a great date idea.
Asia supermarkets – there are usually specialty small Asia supermarkets in most areas including small towns. Look in your Yellow Pages for Asia market.
Computer shows – Asian women are big into electronics particularly things related to computers.
Casinos – at most casinos you will find a high percentage of Asian people there.
Shopping malls – at shopping malls you find a high concentration of a lot of people. Asian women are particularly partial to designer label clothing so find those kinds of stores in the mall and hang out in those areas.
The best online locations if you’re looking for Asian women for dating
There are lots of dating sites for Asian women most of them are relatively unknown but there are actually more Asian women dating sites than there are most other kinds of dating sites If you don’t want to spend money and you are a US resident and there is an Asian dating website called Metro-Date Asian. This would without a doubt be the best place to find Asian girls for dating as you can do it right from home without having to spend a single penny.
Another great online location that lists most of these dating sites where you will find Asian girls is the Asian dating sites list
There are no times in Russia and the Ukraine that individuals did not have to suffer with daily survival. So, do not think that Russian girls are after your wealth.
They just like to change the condition and be sure it will not happen again. Russian girls will stay with you through any fortune, but to think of you as a relationship partner forever, they must be certain you aren’t an unemployed vagrant.
The agencies of online Russian dating are becoming more extensive every day with individuals worldwide seeking that special romance, friendship, love, or marriage.
There are some guidelines which must be implemented to enhance your possibilities of success in online dating of Russian Girls.
Make a choice and join a dating site. You should open a profile. Do not place false info about yourself, you will fill up questionnaire truthful info, write what interests you have, illustrate your character and what woman you would want to find for a wife. Post a photo on your profile, as it will provide you far more possibilities to find your date.
Never bond to a free agency of dating website if you’re searching serious relationships. Because free dating sites are often filled with scam members. Be cautious of dating sites that don’t let you first do some trial searches of Russian girls, before joining a paid membership.
Send an e-mail to the dating agency, and ask how many women they have on their books.
Research anti-scam sites and books that warn about and name the blacklisted dating websites that are operated by scam profilers from Russia, Africa, Nigeria or Singapore and some other countries.
Then select the dating agency to best fit your interest. You must utilize the search engines to locate a variety of dating websites where you think you’re most likely to locate your perfect Russian girls to get to know.
Never give your bank account details or any money direct to the Russian girls. Maybe this woman is a scammer. When you get asked for money, or they demand money for a passport or air ticket, you need to stop all of communication with them and report them to the website operators, and also list them in anti-scam websites, regarding scammers administration
The first impression you make is so important. When you send your first e-mail to the Russian girls and other members, be kind, especially in the 1st letter when they don’t already know you well enough to make allowances for any poor communication skills you may have.

Do Free Dating Sites Pay? – Singles Dating and Chat Tips
Free online dating and chat rooms…..
One of the first and easily the most successful free online dating sites ever established is plentyoffish.com The owner Markus Frind is an entrepreneur from Canada. His free online dating site boasts one of the biggest in the world with around 8 million members and 45 million visitors per month. Marcus has mainly run his free online dating service from his house on his own up until now. This will soon change with around 25 employees set to begin. Marcus is currently the largest ever single Adsense earner making an incredible 10k per day. But like any great idea, this concept has been duplicated many times and the free online chat dating industry now has just as many competitors as the paid industry.
If you have ever wondered how they can give their services away and still make a dollar, its pretty simple. These webmasters make their money from advertising. So when more members join up the greater the potential there is for them to make money.
Singles who are looking around to choose which free dating site catches their attention will notice that many of the free online dating services have all the up to date features that the paid sites have – Have you ever stopped to think why singles keep paying for dating sites? Some free dating sites provide Instant messenger, web cam chat, video feature, private chat rooms and general chat rooms. In fact you would be pushed to find a paid dating and chat service that can offer better features than many free sites offer.
These days when you hear something is free normally there is a catch involved. No, they are just that,free no catch, just register, join, browse/meet and chat to singles all for free. Whilst alot of the free online dating sites have state of the art features, and the webmasters who create them think its a good idea at the time, however there is a big over supply of free online dating services so most have a small data base. Sure its fantastic something is free but without many singles to choose from its really no help. The search engines have pages and pages of paid and free dating services but only a small number of them are successful. The race to reach the top of the search engines sees many free dating site owners fighting a losing battle.
There are certainly some great free dating and chat sites out there that do in fact have decent numbers in terms of their data base so spend an hour or two searching them out to locate one that stacks up.
Paid online dating services.
The big question is why do paid dating sites continue to see growth when there are free dating services hungry for your membership?
The free online dating method has not been around for as long as the paid method. As with many competitive industries the most successful players – like Marcus from plentyoffish have the talent to come up with new ideas to divert away from the main stream market. It boils down to first in best dressed.
The more established dating sites who were one of the first in the race seems to be where most singles eventually end up heading for, paid or free is basically irrelevant. The established dating services have massive member numbers.
