Choosing Between Simple Online Dating And Speed Dating

Jun 28, 2008
Usually online dating is like the traditional type of dating where the advantage is that you get to meet a lot more people virtually than what you would have in reality. Speed dating is for those of you who cannot afford to check out the various dates separately due to their busy schedules.

It is ironical that one is meeting virtually and a gradual process and the other is meeting face to face but in a matter of minutes. You are faced with the dilemma of what to choose simple online dating or speed dating?

We shall give you comparisons between the two and help you decide what to choose simple online dating or speed dating?

Number of members
In simple online dating you will meet a lot of people not only from your area but from several corners of the world and based on your choices you can contact them and over a period of time start short listing them. In speed dating you do meet a lot of people but not as much as you would while dating online and here you can immediately eliminate those who do not fit into your criteria.

Misleading information
In simple online dating you might come across someone who is not what they are claiming to be. Their profiles could be manipulated and the photographs could belong to someone else also.

In speed dating there are less risks involved as you meet the person across the table and have lesser chances of being duped. However, there is no guarantee that the person you meet while speed dating might not be a fake and has put on a false demeanor to impress everybody.

Results
There may be times while dating online, that you get very late responses from some people or may not hear from some at all. This makes you expectant for an indefinite period while in speed dating if you do not like someone you can reject outright. You will also get a prompt response from others as everything is done on the spot.

Frustration level
In simple online dating when you do not find your match even after a painstaking search, you tend to become frustrated and negative towards your goal. In speed dating the frustration level is much lower as you get to meet new people everytime and since you are meeting them physically it is less frustrating than the other one where you do not get to meet the person at all.

Both forms of dating are meant to help people communicate with others and both have advantages and disadvantages. So if you are troubled with the thought of what to choose simple online dating or speed dating why not go in for both? Who said you ca not have best of both the worlds?
