The basic features of Ohio Passions are free to use (if Ohio Passions is the primary site you join within Passions Network). Members can send/receive email, post photos, send 'Smooches' (and perform other 'Actions', join Groups, chat, tag members, add Favories / Friends and much much more. There are additional options within Passions Network that do require a paid upgrade, but they are only options and they are not required to fully enjoy the beneffits of Ohio Passions.
Ohio Passions is part of the Passions Network niche dating social network. The focus of the sites within Passions Network is to help people meet others who share similar interests, and unlike most dating sites, individual sites within Passions Network do not cost anything. Upon joining Ohio Passions, you become a member of the Passions Network network of sites, with the option to add other Passions Network sites into your account if you choose*. Please note that you will only appear on the site(s) in the network that you add into your account. This approach lets people create their own personal social network of dating sites, customized specifically to their particular interests (or passions) in life. *Adding additonal sites into your account can only take place by upgrading to a 'Network Wide Membership'.
While dating is a focus within Passions Network, it is open to anyone looking to meet others who share similar 'passions'. If you have a passion for yoga, join the Yoga Passions site to find a yoga partner. If you love movies, join the Movies Passions site to find others who share your passion for film. While shared interests can lead to dating when both parties are interested, it is not the sole focus of Passions Network.
There is no cost to join any specific site within Passions Network. Please note that you are limited to a single account within Passions Network, and the site you join initally is your primary site. Your primary site, and any sites available to be added into your account for free can be enjoyed at no cost. There are some sites (and some optional features) within the network that do require an upgrade to 'Network Wide Access', which would then allow you to add as many of the other 260+ sites within the network as you would like.
Some of the 260+ Passions Network sites can be added into your account for free, while others require an Account Upgrade.
We would encourage you to consider upgrading to 'Network Wide Access', which will allow you to add any sites that match your interests. Passions Network is a network of individual sites, each with a focus on a specific interest (or Passion), or on a specific geographic region. For example, if you have a passion for yoga, and for reading, and you are a republican vegetarian, you could choose to make your profile available on each of the Passions sites focused on those interests. Perhaps you will make a new friend via the Vegetarian Passions site, even though you may have joined via the Yoga Passions site originally.
No. Passions Network does not provide your email address to anyone. Email messages between members are sent via the internal email system. The only way anyone will ever get your external email address is if you give it to them yourself.
Your 'Favorites / Friends' list allows you to keep track of the people you are interested in, as well as your close friends. Just add someone into your 'Favorites / Friends' list, and you'll be notified when they are online.
A 'smooch' is a quick way to express your interest in someone without writing an email message. See someone you would like to chat with? Send them a 'smooch'. Or take advantage of some of the other fun options like 'hugs', 'licks', 'bites' and 'tickles'.
'Groups' allow you to further define a little of who you are, within individual Passions Network sites. 'Groups' also allow you to find people who share some similarity with you, whether it be a personal trait or a specific interest...and hopefully this will make it easier to break the ice and make new friends. Take a moment to browse some of the Ohio Passions Groups to see how they work.
