A variety of services on dating websites

It is not a secret that many dating websites have paid services. This may be a fee for registering on the site, a fee for additional services, the most popular of them, raising your profile in the search results, and much more. In our estimation, not so many users use paid services on a dating site. Moreover, often, the cost of a paid service will be equal to the amount that most of us, without hesitation, spend in real life on various trifles.

Here we are not talking about fraudulent sites that, without providing the ability to view the information provided on it without registration, require money for registration. This is especially characteristic of the so-called adult dating sites, when without registration a visitor can access only the main page with attractive photos and a warning that registration is paid, and its cost is quite low. But in gray, small letters on a white background it is written, often on another page, that this cost is for one day of membership on the site and the fee is charged immediately for one month. So it turns out that the visitor sends an SMS to register on the site and finally get access to the content for which he came, but much more money is debited from his account.

We will discuss other dating sites where the site search is available without registration, and registration itself is free or paid. It is possible to evaluate a site prior to registration and possibly become interested in some of its users. Most dating sites that are available on the Internet are clones of several large sites and simply show their database of profiles, their only difference is a domain name and, possibly, a modified design. 

Thus, dropping thousands of clone sites, you can choose a dozen of two fairly large dating services

Of course, the main goal of such resources is dating. At the same time, there is even an opportunity to set a filter and find, for example, korean men dating. And services, to the best of their abilities, help people find new friends, intimate partners and, even, love. But do not assume that the owners of the sites are altruists and have only the goal of helping you find your soulmate. No, dating sites, like many other services on the Internet, set the main goal – to make money.

Just like you go to work in the office every day, in order to get paid, dating sites are created to help you in your personal life, which many experts work on. Indeed, in order for the site to work in it, you need to invest a lot of work and money. Buying servers, writing code, posting on the Internet, system administration and support, all this and much more require money. And the larger the site, the more money you need.

Visitors are outraged when they are offered additional paid services

Although in many ways, when for example you are interested in the women seeking women section, it’s easier to pay a small amount of money than to go to a specialized club. Why do we think that the services provided on a dating site for the creation of someone else’s efforts and resources should be free? After all, we are provided with assistance in organizing our personal lives, creating conditions and opportunities for easy communication.

Many of us work and receive wages for our labor, someone produces material goods while standing at the machine, and someone provides services, educates our children, or serves us in stores. But as soon as there is a delay in the payment of money for the work we have done, albeit not material, we are rightly indignant and demand compensation. Also, no one has any complaints about the fact that at the checkout counter of the supermarket you need to pay for the goods you pick up. We consider this quite reasonable and correct. So why do we still have ridiculous thoughts that it’s not worth paying for the services of the same dating services.


Today we get to meet Lindsey Georgalas Ward, who stops by the studio to dish up the dirt on Hines.  We talk about her career in dancing, and how Hines courted her.  Then, we jump into current NFL news, including the rule changes for the 2016 season, what it’s like to compete for a starting job, and whether or not Calvin Johnson will “unretire” with the Patriots.  Finally, we drop into a slew of your questions from the Facebook fan page.


Anthony Jeselnik is one of the most brilliant comics on the scene today.  His slicing sarcasm and cocky delivery barely mask his delight at hearing laughs and groans from the audience.  His facial expression implies that he knows a secret that we don’t, and if you’re not smart enough to figure it out, then that’s on you.  He also happens to be a hardcore Hines Ward fan, having grown up in Pittsburgh.  His edgy, fearless comedy is akin to “going over the middle” in the entertainment world.  We chat about growing up a Steelers fan, how long it takes him to develop a new act (You won’t believe it…), what it’s like to really bomb on stage, and the mindset Anthony adopts with his comedy career.  (Hint:  He hustles, and outworks everyone)

Check out Anthony’s #1 Comedy Special on Netflix, “Thoughts & Prayers”.

For 11 seasons, Heath Miller ran over the middle, said almost nothing, and moved the chains for the Pittsburgh Steelers.  His sudden retirement at the age of 33 caught Steelers Nation, and the rest of NFL Fandom by huge surprise. We here at the HWS were the first interview he did, post-retirement, and we’re happy to share it with you.


Hines and Michael chat about how he spent his 40th birthday, how to have a winners/positive mindset, even though things aren’t going that well in your life, how to “compare up”, show gratitude, and keep a smile on your face.  Then they chat about some current football news, including the departure of Mike Ditka, retirement of Calvin Rodgers, and Antonio Brown on DWTS.  Finally, they wrap up with a few of your questions!

Joe Manganiello (True Blood, Magic Mike, Pee Wee’s Big Holiday)  stops by to talk growing up in Pittsburgh, being a young athlete, what he thought was his big break, and what his life is like being married to Sofia Vergara.

Joe Manganiello is an American actor. He was born in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to Susan (Brachanow) and Charles John Manganiello, and has a younger brother, Nicholas. His father is of Italian descent and his mother has German/Austrian/Croatian and Armenian ancestry. Joe was raised in Mount Lebanon and attended Mount Lebanon high school. During school, he was good at sports and was captain of the football, basketball and volleyball teams. He went on to play varsity level in all three. It was during school that he enjoyed making films with his friends and, as a result, became interested in acting. He went on to study acting at Carnegie Mellon, after which he moved to Los Angeles. He landed a great first job as ‘Flash Thompson’ in Spider-Man in 2002.  He would follow that up with the Spider Man sequels, and eventually landed a starring role as Alcide Herveaux on the hit HBO show “True Blood”, and most recently starred in Magic Mike.  He has a new movie, Pee Wee’s Big Holiday, launching on Netflix on March 18.


On this episode, Hines & Michael talk about Hines’ adjustment after football, his workout routine, why football is so important (especially to Steelers fans), and we get into some of Hines’ favorite trips of all time, including his Vegas insider tips.
