The Pros and Cons of the Online Dating Service List

Jun 22, 2008
Online dating services are everywhere. It's hard not to notice them. They place advertisements on your television screens, neighborhood billboards, radio stations, and on your favorite websites but one question always arises if you are the slightest bit interested in joining one. Are they worth it? As a CEO of a dating website and a user of the service personally, I can tell you that they are worth it, but with some drawbacks. I have put together the reasons below. In essence there are good things and bad things about online dating sites and I will gladly expose the truth.

First, let's begin with the reasons why it is great to use online dating. Above all, the number one reason why people use online dating services is the ease it brings when searching for the "love of your life". There are tons of success stories everywhere you look about people who find their perfect match. Another side the online dating industry that is often overlooked is the safety it provides as it does not actually involve meeting a person anywhere. As a matter of face, online dating should be called online screening because that's what it allows you to with potential partners before you meet them. Online dating does things and tons more. Another good reason is the ability to choose from thousands or even tens of thousands of potential partners. This reduces the chance you will find someone and settle with them from fear of being alone. Also, there is no such thing as being rejected as everyone there is looking for a partner just like you. It's simply easy to find your partner using online dating. But there are downsides to the act of finding a potential partner online. Let's consider them.

To continue, there are downsides to the online dating industry. As a CEO of Quest Dating, I see several things that I should warn anyone about before they consider using an online dating service. The number one thing I see in online dating services that push people away from joining is falsified pictures in profiles. There will come a time when you meet that perfect person and realize later that they are not who they say in their profile. Spotting falsified pictures in profiles is rather easy however. Simply ask them to send you a recent picture of them self wearing a specific color and if they cant provide an image they are not worth the trouble. Another downside to the online dating industry is the cost. It is almost never free to meet a single in any of the online dating websites. Free online dating is another hardball as there are very few free online dating websites that offer quality customer support and above all a great online dating experience. These are all valid things to consider before joining any online dating service.

Overall online dating and free online dating are overall great ways to meet singles online. You have unrivaled convenience, safety, and choice. Being aware of the down sides will make your experience great. Try online dating if you're interested. It's a great way to meet people and you won't regret it.
