1 month is often insufficient time to connect - Consider a longer term
Auto-renew locks in current prices … as long as your subscription remains. It is optional.
Silver and Gold allow you to send and read e-mails. Here's the difference:
Free recipients must upgrade to Silver or Gold, or use Tokens, to read/reply.Silver is lower cost than Gold and safer since both parties are vetted.
Silver is recommended for same sex (M⇔M, F⇔F) connections.
Recipients of all levels, including Free members, may read and reply.
* Benefits exist during the subscription term, not beyond. That is, a Silver/Gold e-mail would revert to Free upon sender's expiration.
Tokens - Special Features / Premium E-mailing
Tokens may be used for sending gifts, special delivery, delivery confirmation, and becoming a featured member.
Tokens may be used to send e-mails ("T-mails") without a subscription at 50 tokens/contact.
T-mails are similar to Gold E-mails – Free members may read/reply for free.
T-mails create a permanent connection between you and your recipient.
Both you and your recipient may freely e-mail back and forth
without time limit regardless of either party's subscription.
T-mails may be more economical than a subscription, but only at extremely low volumes.
Since a subscription allows you to contact more members (100 e-mails/day), it's often a better financial choice.
