OutPersonals.com is probably not the best site when it comes to what it offers on the dating side of things before you upgrade. Still, you can do free local searches in the U.S. and the U.K., although other countries, like Canada for example, only return much broader results. The biggest issue is that you really can see very few profiles before upgrading. If your profile is very popular you might earn some free viewing privileges and some paying members pay extra so everyone can see their full profiles (just not all of their pics). At least, you can read blogs and user-submitted magazine articles before upgrading, not to mention participating in chat rooms and watching some rather naughty member webcams.
