Datepositive.net is making potential new members an offer they can’t refuse – free Premium membership.
“We can see what the economy is doing to people’s lives,” said Sheelagh Caygill, one of the site’s founders. “If you have lost your job or are having to cut back on spending, it’s no fun.
“We don’t want would-be members to not upgrade because they feel they can’t afford the Premium fee,” she added. “This site offers an important service to people who often experience a sense of stigma or rejection, and so we want to make full membership available to everyone who wants join.
People who are unemployed or on a low income just need to scan in any relevant form or document confirming their status and send it to the site administrators in full confidence. People can black out sensitive and secure details on the scan before sending.
The hiv dating and herpes dating site is also running a summer sale, cutting the Premium fee from £5 to just £3 a month until August 15. The membership fee is billed in a one-off payment of £9 for three months.
www.datepositive.net has almost 7,000 members and was launched four years ago. It is open to people around the world and provides a safe and secure environment for people looking for friendship, dating or a long-term relationship.
