For some of you, dating sites might just be places to “hook-up” and for some these are even downright scary.
A lot of people speak of dating sites as if they are one of those things that will bring the apocalypse and we will all be condemned to a world of zombies. The truth, however, lies in the numbers.
Today a whooping number of 40 million people are active on dating sites (no, they will not be the first ones to go green) and one third of those married from 2005-2012 actually met online! These people didn’t obviously get married online. They just found their other halves and then met them in person and now they have their happily ever after.
Today we are breaking down why there is so much hype about dating online and why you should also grab some pom-poms and accompany us on this parade.
They Do the Work for You
Before dating sites, you would put your best shirt and head to the nearest bar and talk to strangers in hopes of stumbling across your soul mate. A lot of the times you would walk home, disgruntled and disappointed after all that effort. This is the primary issue that dating sites solve. If you think about it, your effort is being replaced by the algorithms that match you up with the right person and there is no need to have a closet explosion looking for the perfect outfit for a fairytale that won’t happen.
There is Something for Everyone
You can follow your grandpa’s footsteps but there is no reason for you to meet someone who is not right for you simply for the sake of a first date. You can look for a serious relationship online or you can talk as friends to see where things go. Or simply stay friends! Online dating gives you the choice without the embarrassment of mistakes that meeting straight away doesn’t. Whether you like to party every night or hate talking to strangers, online dating can be the answer to your dating woes. Nobody can contest the fact that it is simply easier to meet in person people that you already have something in common with.
You Find People that are Different
Anyone who has friends that date has heard this one “They are all the same!”
Well if you keep dating in Kansas, Dorothy, you will find the same!
Even if you don’t end up with that boy from Netherlands, you will have had a unique experience. These experiences open our minds to new ways of thinking and new perspectives. There is nothing wrong with long-distance relationships either but even you have a pal who drinks his coffee different from you; it can be a very interesting acquaintance.
Practice Makes Perfect
Do you know that doing interviews makes you more comfortable with them? Well, this works the same way; you talk to people, find out about them a bit, meet them and see where things go. Even if it’s not your happily ever after, there is lesser pressure in the beginning to asking these people out and you learn more along the way. So what are you waiting for?
