Conclusion is a medium quality dating site that offers most of the basic features available at other dating sites. The affordable prices make up for the lower amount of members, but again, be sure to search within the service for someone in your area before joining any dating service. The site offers web chat, email, and other extra features like a toolbar and a quickmatch feature. Overall, is a decent website for online daters who are new to the whole process, want a casual dating experience, or want to spend less money on membership fees.
