5050dating was created as a dating website in 2015 and is privately owned and situated in Auckland, New Zealand.
So what’s 'fairer for everyone' about 5050? It’s the guiding principle behind our name - going 50/50 in a 'no strings attached you pay for yours and I'll pay for mine' coffee. We believe that by placing both parties on an equal footing (by each paying for their own coffee) that this takes a little of the stress out of meeting someone for the very first time. It means that no party need be obligated in any way to the other.
In the real world (as opposed to the online/virtual world) we believe that the best way to meet someone is by being introduced by a friend or third party. As this is not possible here online, we believe that introducing yourself using 5050's Intro is the next best option.
By completing our simple 5050 Verified form it lets others know that you acknowledge 5050's guidelines and that your identity is 'Verified' by the presence of your vlog.
* Your 5050 V badge will appear on your profile photo only when you have a vlog present.
After you've been meeting people for a while, you're going to get 'daters fatigue' or just plain sick of meeting new people. The concept behind vlog is not only safety (a vlog can verifify someones identity) but also to help you decide whether you'd actually like to meet the person in question.
You can join 5050 for free as a Friend, but you don't even have to register to 'See Who's Here.' You can Search Singles right on the Homepage. If you do decide to register, you can then take up one of our free options to trial 5050 to see if it's what you're looking for. Then if you like us, you can choose a payment option that suits you or simply remain registered as a Friend for free.
Once upon a time, there was such a thing as the Personal Column. Or The Personals. Or Lonely Hearts. Now there's online dating. Only back in the day, no one ever saw what you looked like until you actually met! Oh yes, big surprise. And messaging was reliant on the post - now called 'snail mail.' The internet has simply made dating faster and easier. Although we understand that uploading a profile photo and having your face 'out there' can make you feel, well, 'exposed' and uploading a vlog? Ditto. In order for online dating to work successfully (unless you want to go back to snail mail) - it's important you complete your profile and even upload a vlog. Yes, time has moved right along and with it - ways of meeting people.
