International Internet Holdings started Date.com in 1997. They offer a free service and once you’re satisfied with that, you can upgrade to a gold membership for a low monthly fee or pay for an annual membership.
Some of the free benefits on Date.com are: free profile post and show interest in others. Others can see your profile, and if they are a gold member they can send you an email or talk to you with instant messenger. You are free to browse all the profiles yourself and other’s photographs.
With a gold membership at Date.com you have the option to send email to anyone, use instant messaging and even go to the chat room. And remember, your email is protected because you use their specially designed email so your personal information is protected as long as you don’t disclose anything until you’re ready.
