Mixing Technology with Romance

Mar 14, 2008
One of the most difficult processes that the human being will ever face is that of locating and building a positive functional relationship with their perfect mate. Society simply provides too many unforeseen aspects and incidents to know for sure that the potential relationship will start out successfully, as well as last through the long haul.

Meeting someone is simple enough. Life provides plenty of possibilities here in average everyday activities, such as grocery shopping, work, and any other social environment. The true difficult issues lie in every confrontation thereafter. Fortunately, the technological revolution that has led to the presence of the Internet has provided a very good alternative to looking for the perfect mate in a social environment. The phenomenon of online dating services has taken so much of the guess work out of the dating experience, so much of the discomfort, that we are actually left with the perfect outlet for seeking that one special person. Let us take a close look at the possibilities and potential of face-to-face connections versus that of utilizing a dating service.

First, there is the act of finding a perfect visually attractive partner. Where does one look in the social environment? There are truly a lot of choices, but then, how do you know what you are getting? Are you sure this is the right one? You can't actually look them over as if he or she were a new car you were considering purchasing. This would end in catastrophic results. No, at best, you get a glance now and then. Otherwise you would be staring, and this tends to "creep" the other individual out. At an online dating service, on the other hand, you get to look at a photograph of every individual that you could possibly ever want to choose from. Do they have pretty eyes? Online, you have the opportunity to get a closer look without getting slapped in the face. If there is a certain thing about a partner that you would rather avoid, you can just click a button to go to the next instead of having to walk away uncomfortably.

Next we have the actual meeting. In a social environment, such as a workplace or a club, actually working up the nerve to go up to a stranger and strike up a conversation is difficult at best. There are moments of uncomfortable silence as the individual in question doesn't really know your motives and you, in turn, haven't the foggiest idea of how they are internally reacting to your advances. This initial conversation can be one of the most difficult aspects of dating. Utilizing Dating services, however, totally takes this moment out of the equation. If a person is using a dating service, then their motives are obvious. They are looking for a partner. This is the only reason they could possibly have. You don't have to wonder if they are married or simply looking for a one-night stand. These individuals on a dating service are all looking for the perfect LIFETIME mate. Motives are no longer an issue.

Moving on, there is the difficult issue of wondering if this person is compatible with you. In the social environment, one has no idea of the other person's interests. Do they share your interests? The only way to find out is to start the process of building a relationship, getting to know the other person, and investing a lot of effort, thus wasting a lot of time if this isn't that one right person. Using an online dating service, however, it is all right there in front of you, on your computer screen, in black and white. Each of the individual's interests are listed. Their quirks, likes, and dislikes are all posted for you to peruse at your leisure. Instead of investing days or even weeks in building a doomed relationship, you can find all the information that you need in a matter of seconds.

The global statistics of relationship failure are phenomenal. Social environmentally based dating is akin to finding a needle in a haystack. To make it work, it takes time, and in today's busy world, time is a valuable commodity. You can take all the guesswork out of it and find your perfect mate in a matter of days, when it used to take years. All it takes is just a little time and an Internet connection.
