Online Dating, Works?
by Anonymous

There is much debate about online dating, some people think it isn’t safe but that couldn’t be further from the truth as long as it is used correctly. Yes, there are a lot of weirdos online but the same could be said for people you meet in the bar, club, etc. Honestly, online dating is the perfect way to meet new people and possibly find love/someone to have a fun time with.

The new way to meet people, Everywhere you turn, you see people wrapped up in their own bubble of technology. Whether they be constantly on their phone in the streets, or on their laptop in some coffee shop. It’s very hard to meet people the traditional way anymore and it’s much easier to strike up a conversation when there is a computer screen to hide behind. There is so many people who have found love online and continue to do so, every single day. It opens the door to a much larger group of people, giving you the chance to meet people in your local area or those who live further away. What you are going to get when you hit that “sign up” button is unknown but finding out is an exciting prospect.

Attracting the right kind of people, How you present yourself on your online dating profile is really important to attracting the kind of men/women that you will be interested in. Looks do count for something and it’s vital that you are honest in your description of yourself. You should also upload a photograph that is current and one that has good lighting, etc. With the millions of people who are signed up to dating sites, you are guaranteed to find somebody who finds you attractive. You don’t want your dating profile to go on for ages, just keep in short and sweet. Don’t get too deep, give a general overview of your hobbies without going into too much detail of your private life. If people like what they see and read, you are going to get inundated with messages and it’s then up to you, to take it from there.

Staying safe online, Do not feel obligated to chat to somebody, just because they have messaged you. If you don’t like the way that they are speaking to you or they seem dishonest – things don’t have to be taken any further. Don’t give away your address, telephone number or even your full name to somebody who you have only just met. When it comes to meeting up in person. If you find somebody who you want to take things further with – ensure that you do so in a public area. Meeting in a casual setting like a cafe will make you more relaxed and you can really get an idea of the person who you have been talking to. Hopefully, your date will turn into something great but if it doesn’t and you get bad vibes, you can make a quick getaway. Finally, make sure that you are using legitimate dating sites – check out reviews if you are not sure.

Online dating is the perfect way to meet new people and hopefully find love. As long as you make sure you keep your guard up, at least at first, the world is your oyster and it’s a method of dating that is definitely worth exploring.
