The other main reason is that romance scammers are getting much wiser and more 'professional' so dating sites need a much more effective and highly trained support team which the free dating sites simply cannot afford.
We all like to get things for free but with something as important as your love, future and security, it seems it is worth paying a little.
The good news is that this Buzz50 dating site is completely free to join, search, match and message so it won't cost you a penny until you are sure that it is for you.
Now is a great time of the year to start online dating over 50, so scroll up the page and give it a go!
Comment: Jack Spratt 8th November 2017: Great to see a video done by the owner or runner of a site rather than a faceless agency! Reply: Mike Barrett 9th November 2017: I hope that you do join the dating site Jack and this is a very interesting name that you have; Jack Spratt!
