Tips And Advice For Choosing A Dating Service

Jul 27, 2008
Like almost everything else these days, love has gone digital. Instead of hitting the singles scene, now people looking for love turn to their computers and go shopping for a mate online the same way they show for their books and plane tickets.

Online dating can be a wonderful thing for a lot of people. It has the convenience of letting your check out potential suitors at a distance without having to get all dolled up and it lets you meet a much wider variety of people than you ever could by simply going out.

You also get the benefit of chatting with people in a non-threatening environment as in, not face-to-face so you break the ice and get to know each other with a little more ease.

Of course, with all of the benefits of online dating, and the ever-increasing popularity of looking for love online, the number of Internet dating websites and services has literally exploded.

There are way more dating website out there than you could ever find time to browse, so you need to prioritize your online dating to up the chances of you getting to people you want to meet as quickly and painlessly as possible. How do you narrow down all of your options to find the perfect dating site for you? These tips should help you.

First of all, ask yourself whom you want to date. If you have a set of criteria, chances are there is at least one website that caters to your deal breaker set of partner must haves. For instance, if you are looking to date someone with money, you can try sites that cater to matching millionaires with the, ahem, ladies who love them.

If you can't walk past a soldier without getting weak in the knees, try dating sites that cater to military people. Whether you want to meet an older man, a younger woman, a truck driver, a gamer, a musician, or you name it, there is more than likely a website out there just waiting to match people with your interests to the people who meet them.

Getting too narrow in your search can work against you, however. Sure, you might have your heart set on a millionaire milkman who is exactly 6 feet tall and eats meatloaf every Wednesday night, but you might be surprised what you can find if you branch out a little.

So, after you locate your special interest dating site, cast your net a bit wider. Check out some sites that don't have any niche following and that just match people with people.

Ask around and see which sites other people have had success with. Dipping your toe in a nice set of five to ten proverbial pools is a good way to find the best dating service for you. This might sound like a lot of work, and it might sound expensive. Although not everyone has the patience for filling out profile after profile, expensive this process is not. You can join just about any dating site for free. You only start paying when you start contacting people.

It's like shopping in this way. If you don't see anything, you leave the store. If you like, you buy. Taking advantage of this risk free way to try out different sites is a great way to find the best one. Give a site a few weeks to come through with someone that catches your interest.

After that, cast the pole back out and try out some new sites. Your perfect matchmaker is out there somewhere. A little trial and error and you'll find it in no time.
