If you haven’t had much luck when it comes to dating recently, perhaps it’s time to give online dating a try. I know what you’re thinking, this makes you almost seem desperate, but millions of people all over the world are meeting people online and embarking on successful relationships. Before you decide to give it a shot, and start looking at the many options available, let’s compare and contrast.
Think about all the people you meet in your every day life. Work colleagues, college friends, friends, family friends….and so on. The chances are that every single day you will be around other people, with a percentage of them being ‘dating material’. Let’s look at an example. You go to work from 9am to 5pm, you go for a drink in a bar from 7pm to 10pm. How many people do you think you will have met that you consider ‘dating material’? You’ve heard the saying ‘never mix business with pleasure’, so it’s pretty unlikely you will date someone you work with. Besides, you want to forget about that place when you get out of there at 5pm. You go to your favorite bar at 7pm with some friends.
Someone might catch your eye. Great. Here’s the problem though. Unless you get some time alone with them, you won’t be able to find out much about them. They are with their friends, you are with your friends. Maybe if you’re lucky, you can get their number – but it’s hardly ideal, is it? You still don’t know much about them. The fact is, there are hundreds, no THOUSANDS of people out there that will catch your eye. The chances of that guy or gal at the bar being exactly what you’re looking for right now are pretty slim, let’s face it.
OK, let’s look at the many benefits of online dating. One of the main benefits, is that whatever it is you are looking for – it’s out there. There are dating sites catering to every kind of person. Want to find the love of your life? No problem. Want to meet someone for no strings sex? Done deal.
Want to date black people only? Easy. Do you have these same options in your favorite bar? Probably not, and even if there are – you may not even know about it because you don’t get the opportunity to sit down and talk to them. I know what you’re thinking though – online dating costs money. Actually, it doesn’t always. In addition to the many free sites available, there are lots of high quality paid sites offering free trials and discounts on membership.
There is a reason millions of people pay to be members of online dating sites – because they work. Like I said earlier, whatever you are looking for – it’s out there. It doesn’t matter if you want Mr. or Mrs. Right, or Mr or Mrs. Right Now – they are out there and waiting for you. So why not sign up today and give it a shot? Alternatively, you could go through your day to day life meeting the same, uninspiring people. The choice is yours.
