Met somebody. We corresponded for 6 days before meeting. I was a gold member for about 3 days before that. We talked on the phone a couple of times and texted to arrange a place to meet. We met at a Montanas for drinks. We have only been on a couple of dates. But until I see where this is going to go, I do not need a Gold membership at this time.
I like the site but giving non member people more options would be good. Overall your site is good!
