How To Find A Date

Aug 22, 2007
There are many reasons to consider online dating. Has a friend ever dragged you out on a blind date? The person may have been so boring that you felt you had wasted your evening. To make it worse he/she wanted to see you again! It was so embarrassing trying to say no without hurting or offending. That need not happen again. Start out getting to know someone through an online dating service. You will be able to find out a bit about the person by reading their profile. Not only that, but when you join up, you'll have to fill out the answers to some questions about your preferences, so you'll be more likely to get a 'match' who suits you.

Another reason to consider online dating is that many people are kept really busy by their jobs these days. With company cost-cutting going on, employees are expected to work longer hours, which gives them less time and energy to spend looking for a date in the real world. You don't have to spend all that extra time dressing up either. Not unless you decide you like that person enough to date them in real time. Online dating will give you the chance to meet a greater variety of people too. When you only have x amount of time, you cannot be expected to meet a great many and variety of people.

For shy people, online dating will give them confidence to present themselves in the best possible manner without worrying about the myriad of things a shy person worries about. You don't have to worry about how well you are keeping up your end of the conversation, because there is time to think about what you write in an email. You won't have to worry about how you look, or whether you just cracked a very bad joke through sheer nervousness.

Another consideration for online dating is the expense. Though some dating services require a paid subscription, it will not usually work out as expensive as a night on the town. Meals, drinks, taxis, and entertainment all cost money, so if yours is in rather short supply, you don't need to worry. It won't be so likely to end up wasted on someone that you don't like. There are also free online dating websites that you can use, though these may not have the same personal safeguards as the paid ones. If you are careful and follow all that they advise, you can still have the chance to meet a safe and successful online date.

After that big emotional break-up you might feel that you never want to date anyone ever again, but what about giving online dating a try? Of course, give yourself time to recover first, but when the heartache starts to ease, or you no longer want to smash things, then pick yourself up, dust yourself off and start again! But this time, tread carefully. An online dating service may be the ideal way to meet someone that you can enjoy life with again.

Or perhaps your dates never seem to get further than the first outing - maybe you just pick the wrong type and find they don't really interest you, after all. An online dating service can help you here, because they will find a person who is more likely to be interested in the same things you are. You do have to answer some questions to start with; otherwise your found match may be no match at all. Remember that the more of those questions you answer, the more likely you are to get a match that will suit you.

How do you know you are ready for online dating? Here are some points to consider:

* You are not currently dating anyone seriously.
* You feel lonely, but your last date was a disaster.
* You would like to find someone quite different to your usual dates.
* You are too busy to look around much or don't know where to look.
* You don't like going to singles bars alone.
* You spend quite a bit of time surfing on your computer.

If you still wonder whether you are ready to take that big step of online dating, then remember that just because you join up to one of the many online dating services, it doesn't mean you have to actually date anyone. You can just look until you feel that a certain person could be the right one for you. And even if you do initiate - or agree to - contact, you don't have to take it any further than the first email unless you want to. It is all up to you.
