USA Today Says You’re Spending Way Too Much on Dating

“Singles spend an average of about $60 a month, or $738 a year per person, on dating-related activities to find a special someone, according to a survey out today that asked about sex, relationships, dating behavior and what’s OK in a relationship.” Wait, what? USA Today, go home, you’re drunk.

With Valentine’s Day around the corner this weekend, if you’re already set with a date then chances are you’ve probably already forked over a ton of money for dinner, flowers, and maybe even some jewelry or a thoughtful gift.  Restaurants commonly jack prices up this weekend simply because they know they’ll get people to pay – and to no one’s surprise, they’re right.  But let’s pull the reigns back a bit and think about those absurd financial numbers quoted above: as staggering as they are, they’re honestly pretty darn spot on.

Think about all the dates you’ve gone on in the past year – I guarantee you could generate an average cost for all of them fairly quickly.  Chances are if you’re single and looking for a partner, then you’ve probably spent at least the amount that USA Today quoted above: about $738 bucks a year.  Dinners, drinks, online dating subscriptions, you name it – it’s a pretty crazy number, isn’t it?  And what’s crazier is that’s the average; meaning, to compute that average, there had to have been a ton of respondents who came in at much higher spending levels.  Regardless where you may fall or have fallen on that cost spectrum, one thing is certain: online dating is way too expensive.

Well that’s where LFGdating comes in.  If you’re looking for a safe, truly authentic geek and gamer dating site, you’ve come to the right place.  You also don’t have to worry about breaking the bank just to meet a ton of real folks; our lifetime subscription (yes, that would be just a single purchase that’s good forever) runs at just $50 bucks.  Those big box sites you’ve been thinking about?  You’ll pay that same amount per month.  Yeah, we think that’s ridiculous too.  Oh, and our one month plan is just $5 bucks.  No site can top that, and no site can top the customer service quality that we deliver.
