Is Online Dating Better Than Conventional Dating

Jan 30, 2008
When online dating was first introduced to us many years ago, many people were skeptical about it. Mainly because people in society were used to conventional dating, going out to a bar, night club, parties, or any other type of social gathering to look for a date.

Since the introduction of online dating many things has changed, dating sites are now considered to be a normal thing. Because many people have been able to achieve success with them, so the facts cannot be denied, it is effective. But how effective is it, is it more effective than conventional dating?

Since the introduction of online dating many people have been asking that question. In this article I will compare and contrast the two methods and you will make your own decision.

Many people prefer to join a dating site because they live an active lifestyle and they do not have much time to socialize.

Some people are not comfortable joining a dating site because they are very traditional and they would prefer to go to a social outing.

For most antisocial people the advent of dating sites was one of the greatest inventions they have ever witnessed.

While there are people who would prefer to go to a social event simply because they believe the internet is unsafe and it will be a mistake to pursue a relationship online.

For many people who live in an isolated area where they have very little contact with potential dating partners they usually turn to online dating when trying to find a date.

There have been certain dating sites on the internet which have been popular for harvesting spammers. Certain people prefer to go to a social event because they think of all online dating sites as a harvesting ground for spammers.

Many dating sites will automatically match you with other members based on the criteria that you select for who your ideal partner is. Some people enjoy doing this because it saves them time.

There are many scammers who will usually join dating sites with the intent of scamming other members. This is another factor that will deter certain people from participating in online dating.

Trying to decipher whether online dating is better than conventional dating is a difficult task. They both have pros and cons associated with them. You must use your judgment in an effort to decide what is best for you. In order to achieve the best results it is important that you try to widen your dating pool by using as many mediums as possible to find that special someone.
