What is a Pledge in Pledgedates?
A Pledge is a symbol of committment.

Pledgedates is a totally free to use online dating platform. Users can send unlimited amount of messages to an unlimited amount of users. We know however that this is hard to handle sometimes, to filter out sincere introductions with insincere inquiries. Pledgedates is created to make this journey a bit eaiser, by incorporating the use of Pledges.

Via Pledges, users can identify genuinely interested users and users with a certain level of committment. We cannot verify every aspect of a user's background, but at least we know if a user pledged, he/she has provided a real email address linked to a bank account. That's many folds safer than speaking to someone on, let say Tinder, who may have connected his or her fake facebook account only to the app.

In addition, you can also find out if the other users is having similar or different financial interest and situation as you do. We encourage users to request pledges to each other if this is important to you, so that there is no suprise later.

How can you make use of the Pledge metrics?
1- Pledge as a measure of committment.

Based on the amount of pledges a person made, you can gauge a user's committment to finding a partner. Users are encouraged to request the opposite user to make a Pledge before answer his/her chats. There is of course no obligation from both side to make a pledge.

2- Pledge as a measure of honesty

As we have explained earlier. A user needs to have a real email address and a Paypal account linked to a bank account to make Pledges. Hence Pledges is a very good way to see if the person behind this account is real.

3- Pledge as a measure of financial interest and situation

There are money-horders, gold-diggers, big-spender everywhere. When two people with different financial interests go together, sooner or later they may run into difficult situation. Pledges is a good way to see into each other's financial interest and situation early on. Request the other party to make a pledge if needed.

What is General Pledge?
It's like verifying your account

General Pledges are pledges made to be shown as key metrics on your profile. Via General Pledge, you show that you have verified your account and have a certain level of financial security.

How the other users view your pledges is really up to them. There may be people who would like to meet someeone who pledged more, the same or less than them. They will be able to see it clearly via the General Pledge amount.

Advantage of making General Pledge is that it is not sent to any particular person and you only have to do it once to show that you have pledged. You can of course do it more than once to increase the General Pledge amount later if you want.
