For you instant-gratification types, you probably won’t find your life partner after paying for one month on an Internet dating site. Even paying for less than six months is probably too short of a time, and it’ll rush you into being an urgent dater, which isn’t a good dater to be. When you give a credit-card authorization for payment for your first subscription period, you’ll probably be authorizing the site to automatically renew your subscription in perpetuity, possibly well beyond your eventual marriage and death.
If you pay for six months (or even a year) and find your dream mate on Day 2, consider yourself the luckiest person on earth and money very well spent. Even if you pay for an entire year, don’t expect to use the site every week or every month. So if you sign up for six months, at some point you may be debited another six-month charge without warning.
