From Online Dating Real Life Dating

Feb 6, 2008
People who select internet-dating sites as a source for meeting members of the opposite sex, experience three phases of online dating that will hopefully fulfill some personal needs. Some people are afraid of commitments and especially to those that they cannot see what they are committing to so they simply decide to join an online dating site and fill out a profile and wait. The waiting period for meeting someone might take only a few minutes but initial contact is okay because online dating provides people with a great deal of anonymity.

The online dating concept will take a little while to settle in with people who are fearful of not knowing what they are getting into. Some online daters feel threatened from the start because they had to provide personal information from their credit card to gain membership to the dating website databases where people who are searching for romance, love, and marriage are also waiting. Some people get so uncomfortable about this fact that they will cancel their membership and contact their credit card company to alert them to possible fraud opportunities that really do not exist.

For those that persist in the online dating journey, the dating opportunities are only a moment away. The online dating site membership databases can be quickly scanned by height, weight, race, religious affiliation, education, sexual preference, and a ton of other specifications. After online daters have taken the time to review profiles of people that appeared on the screens after one of these factors were queried, the online dater is ready to date in real time because that is the time that they will make the first contact.

Real time dating opportunities will typically begin with the person sending a notification to a person whose profile looks interesting. The contact will be made through email systems installed on the online dating website, or if the person had other preferences, it might be diverted to another mail systems inbox. That message of interest could sit there for years, but it typically does not because site administrators will verify accounts several times a year.

Excitement will start building when an online dater gets a response back from that person. Some online dating sites have strict rules about how members contact each other and how much personal information is exchanged at that time. People are famous for using codes to get past the content editing software on the dating sites, and eventually people will learn the email addresses for each other.

Through this real time contact, people might decide to meet in person, and some will talk through emails for quite a long time. Ever online dater sets limits as to what they will do online because meeting a suitable mate is one of the most important decisions that a person will make during a lifetime. At times, it is quite possible for several contacts to be active at one time for both of the people who are sending mail. Since this is so, online daters learn to juggle promises about meeting in person and going out on real dates. When people are ready for real life dating they may exchange telephone numbers or arrange to have coffee in a popular restaurant.
