"Taking it one date at a time"

About Me

So why did I choose online dating? Well, there are all kinds of singles groups, speed dating events, and other ways that you can try to meet people.Why is online dating so much better than more traditional ways to meet people?

There are several huge advantages that online dating has over more traditional dating methods. Here are just a few of the reasons that I chose online dating.

Convenience – You can browse personal ads, answer emails (ignore emails), and change your own profile whenever you have spare time. Early in the morning, late at night,it doesn’t matter.

If you are trying to meet people at a speed dating event or singles dinner then you have to work the day and time of the event into your schedule and you might have to give up something fun or even leave work early to attend. Online dating is much more convenient for me.

Selection – When you are browsing through personal ads and profiles online you can look at profiles and ads posted by people who live in the same town as you, the same province/state as you, and even the same neighborhood as you if that’s what you want.

You can also decide not to limit your search and look for a potential partner anywhere in the world. If you are frustrated because the people that you meet locally never seem to be a good fit for you then you can look in another state or even another country for a potential partner. The only limit when you are dating online is how far you’d be willing to travel, or move, for the right partner.

If you meet someone in a bar and give that person your phone number or address you don’t know what that person will do with that information because that person is still a stranger. By dating online you can guard your personal information until you feel safe sharing it.

No Confrontation – If you are approached by a stranger at a bar or stuck with someone you don’t like at a singles event, it might be very awkward or uncomfortable to have to tell that person that you’re not interested in them. Sometimes, people might not want to take no for an answer. When you are using online dating you can let someone know with a quick email that you’re not interested or you can just block them from contacting you.

Affordability – Unlike pricey dating services, singles events, or matchmakers,some sites are free ; others charge a small monthly fee. For that fee you can get all the security measures that the site offers plus you can browse as many profiles and talk to as many people as you want.

Almost anywhere you go you can find happy couples who met using online dating. The statistics prove that online dating really works, if you are willing to put the time and effort into making it work. Online dating can be much more successful than traditional dating methods.

So I'm taking it one date at a time. Wish me luck! xoxo
