I am happy to say the negative stereotypes about online dating have been defeated. People are not only filling out their profiles in the privacy of their own home, they are also trying to find a match via their mobile phones while sitting in traffic or grocery shopping.
Now that we are no longer trying to convince the world that online dating is an acceptable and “cool” practice, I can focus on presenting you with the positives that come with searching for that soulmate via the internet.
Lists, Show Me The lists!
1-In today’s world, there’s a dating site for everyone. Much like when advertising your product, you are able to choose a site that caters to your exact preference or demographic of choice.
- WeWaited.com-Virgins who are waiting until marriage
- Veggiedate.com- Vegetarian dating for vegetarian singles
- Grindr.com- Men finding men
- Cupidtino.com- Dating site for Apple fans.
- Sparkology- Young NYC professionals
2- Always struggling to express your achievements and background when meeting someone? While online dating, you are able to show off your best qualities via an AboutMe section without sounding overly cocky or obnoxious.
3- Filters. Lot’s of them. Some sites allow you to filter your matches by height, ethnicities, location, income, religion, etc. The really great sites, like Sparkology, filter your results for you. They have pre-screened all possible matches and only show you other educated professionals in your area.
4- Talking online helps ease your nerves when meeting in person for the first time.
5- Variety. No time to mope around while feeling rejected. If it doesn’t work out, there are plenty of fish in the sea, just a click away!
5- Cats out of the bag- everyone on there is looking to meet someone else. When you walk into a bar, you aren’t sure who is single or open to a relationship etc. This is especially true for sites the members pay for like Sparkology. Most people won’t pay for a dating site they don’t intend to take seriously.
6- He/She obviously finds you attractive. No need to play the guessing game with regards to looks.
