Why You Should Consider Online Dating


Most single men and women think that an online dating website is for those looking for a one-night stand, casual dating, or who are desperate or just plain weird. It’s those people who unwillingly sign up, only to find out that they are completely wrong about dating sites and their members.

Online dating sites are not just for those looking to find a one-night stand or affair. They are also populated by people with serious intentions, and who are simply looking to build long-term relationships with other consenting adults. The ability to list what an individual is looking for (just fun or serious commitment, etc.) can ensure that everyone understands the other person’s intentions and doesn’t get any false pretences about what he or she is looking for.

In addition to this, Internet dating sites are not for the desperate or the weird. They are actually for people who couldn’t find what they’re looking for in their daily lives. Many people don’t want to waste their spare time on countless dates with people who they are not really attracted to, and others may find that they are simply too busy to go on a date with people due to their work schedule. Anyway, there are people from all ages, all walks of life and all cultures on online dating sites, making it an exciting, fun and diverse place to meet new single men and women!

            Free vs. Paid Dating Sites

Once you’ve decided to take the first step in finding your true love or genuine friendship with a person of the opposite sex, you need to determine what dating website(s) to use. There are a great variety of free and paid dating sites available for use in the UK; however, you need to check out the features of each and consider their pluses and minuses.

One thing you have to know is that most of the paid online dating websites offer an “advanced” matching algorithm. While this may sound worth the extra money, you need to remember that neither complex formulae nor computer programs can predict whom your perfect match will be. Moreover, many people find that they are not nearly as successful with their selected matches on dating sites as they are when they browse through a list of singles personally!

            Free dating sites in your area

Free dating websites are the best option for those individuals who are just starting out in the world of online dating, and for those who have been looking for love for a quite while. Online dating sites like BeNaughty.com feature the options most paid dating sites offer at absolutely no cost. Simply log on to BeNaughty or one of the other free dating sites and begin looking at the attractive single men and women near you!

Wake Me Up BEFORE September Ends

These past couple of months, I feel I have been stuck in a dating coma of sorts.  I was under the impression that I was taking a proactive role in dating by signing up for this online dating site and going out with a handful of men every week or so.  But as it turns out, my romantic life is far from flourishing.   My chances at finding true love are as imaginary as an upcoming Mayweather-Pacquiao match.

I feel that I’m simply going through the motions of dating.  I chat with men online, and then meet them in person.  We go through the entire getting-to-know-you conversation, and then nothing results from it.  It is tiring, I have to admit.  The whole ritual has become taxing on my emotions.

It’s not that I’m in a mad rush to have a partner for life.  I just want to connect with someone, but I don’t see any sparks flying off in every direction.  I don’t feel the giddiness of a schoolgirl on prom night.  However good the men look on paper, things don’t look so promising in real life.

My boss keeps telling me to stop holding up that “pick me” sign on my forehead.  Dates are not job interviews where you have to impress.  They’re supposed to be fun, and if anything, I’m the one who does the choosing.

A paradigm shift is in order, I guess.  Instead of using a shotgun approach when it comes to dating, I’ll go and join meetup groups where I could spend time with people who enjoy doing the same things I do.  That’s going to be a more worthwhile use of my time.

The alarm has gone off.  It’s time for me to finally wake up.
