You’ve probably heard of popular dating sites such as eHarmony and Match.com. POF.com (Plenty ofFish) claims to be the largest dating site online with 3 million active daily users and 50,000 new singles a day.

So how does the site make money when they don’t charge a fee to message? Besides offering premium services as part of their upgraded membership, they make money through advertising.
Instead of signing up for dating site after dating site, why not just use one that consists of over 250? PassionsNetwork.com is a network of 250 dating and niche social networking sites.
