As far as I'm concerned, Positive Singles is a total scam. All you people who think they are the number one std site are fooling yourselves. First of all they do not like to be in competition with other std sites, if you just look around, you will see sites with other names that positive singles now owns, try going to any one of these sites and you will be redirected back to Positive Singles, they even claim to have a totally free std site called Positive Fishes, but when you try to sign up, you are redirected back to the Positive Singles site and who likes to be redirected? Nobody I know does.
Then Positive Singles is more interested in making money than they are about making relationships happen. Let's say you sign up for membership on PS which you can do for free, but free membership is very limited, you can only respond for free when a paying member sends you a message, you cannot initiate messages yourself, this is how they trick you into buying a premium membership. Everybody likes attention, right? So when your profile starts getting attention, people of the opposite gender or the same (whatever floats your boat) view your profile and send free winks or messages, you get sucked into becoming a paid member and when you agree to pay monthly, tri-monthly or whatever, this is a recurring charge. Every month, this mount will be deducted from your account. At first you think nothing of it because of the attention your profile is getting.
So you meet someone, start chatting, getting to know each other to the point where you wish to move to the next level of giving out your email address, this is a no-no. You might send something like this: [email protected]
but what your friend will see is [email protected]
, phone numbers are given the same treatment and this is why I say they are more interested in making money than they are in making relationships happen because they are okay with you corresponding on site, as soon as you want to take it up a notch and get more personal with your new friend, it's like you crossed the line with PS. On the other hand lots of paying members grow tired of paying out money every month with no positive results, you will see this as you're browsing profiles, some will say their subscription is running out soon and they do not plan on renewing. This is because after being a paying member for any length of time, they have experienced everything I've described above and are simply fed up with being treated this way and bolt. Then when these people start looking at other std sites and see the amount of sites that are redirected back to the PS site, they get even more pissed off and just end up staying single and miserable, all thanks to PositiveSingles.com
