Since developing dating site is a part of my professional history - just found it interesting to read Markus Frind's rant called Dating Industry Today, comparing "paid sites" (aka subscriptions) vs. "free sites" business models:
"We can sum up the paid dating industry pretty easilly. Screw your customers as much as you can and extract as much money as you can. For free dating sites its the exact opposite. Give people exactly what they want, and hope it generates word of mouth so you can grow!"
Markus Frind is CEO of plentyoffish.com - dating site.
