Online Dating Singles Advice: Become a Australian Marriage Statistic

Jun 17, 2008
The average Australian family no longer necessarily consists of a mother, father and children. In today's society we find a variety of different set ups living happily side by side. Singles are on the increase and are increasingly found to be enjoying this additional time "on the shelf".

Decreases in marriage rates, increases in the divorce rate, wider acceptance of cohabitation, same sex relationships and the growing independence of women all have helped shape the diverse society we find today. Having children outside of wedlock is considered the norm and the increases in cohabitation mean that not all family separations are documented - making the figure far higher than the 33% divorce rate documented by the Australian Bureau of statistics. Of the people who do marry, most are doing it later in life - the average age for a man to marry now stands at 30.5 and 28 years old for women. Divorced people have a far higher likelihood of remarriage compared to those widowed with 56% of divorced men heading down the aisle again and 46% in women - in contrast only 3% of widows were likely to remarry.

So what does all this mean for today's aging, once again singles? In some ways its good news. There are many more daters of both sexes available on the market! Businesses of all types have sprung up to target this market segment with singles speed dating nights, singles socials, singles clubs, singles online dating sites, singles adventure activities, singles friendship meets and even single Christian congregations! In the UK well known supermarkets even advertise singles shopping nights with statistics showing that singles often end up meeting their would be partner at the supermarket.

Finding a partner, if that is what you want, need not be a stressful or desperate endeavor. Singles who are confident and comfortable with themselves and who are happy socializing will always do well but not all is lost for those a little more shy or who live in an area that is less densely populated than central Sydney!

Online dating sites make it easy to chat and to meet other people with similar interests. Online dating allows anyone to be a social butterfly - with some sites offering the ability to set up groups for singles to attract those with similar mindsets to your own. Of course the best online dating sites for singles are free - it seems silly to spend money on standard communication tools such as webcam chats, groups and email contact. Commercial sites end up costing a fair chunk of money that could be invested in self improvement or on socializing. Larger sites are impersonal too and can easily overwhelm the genuine dater as the professional, serial romancers take all the credits. Why not choose a smaller, well set up site and really let your confidence build - set up some groups, be the initiator of conversations and take a more positive step towards being one of Australia's marriage Statistics!
