I've recently tried online dating and I love it! Sure, it can be a little intimidating at first, but there are so many reasons to give old online dating a new look! If you're wondering whether or not to take the plunge and give online dating a try, keep reading! Here are 7 good reasons to go back to online dating, or give it a go for the first time.
1. There Are Loads of New Sites
No matter what you're into — pets, online gaming, fetishism — there's an online dating service that caters to your interests and hobbies, and even your religious inclinations. Want to be matched by musical tastes? Try Fellody.com. Want to find another Christian to date? Try ChristianMingle. You get the idea.
2. There Are Lots of New Men!
If you go back to your old online profile, even without updating it, you'll notice that there are loads of new men, and possibly even new matches, even if it's only been a few weeks since you were active. New people, new MEN, join every day!
3. It's Free
Sure, there are online dating services that charge a pretty hefty fee each month, but some are completely free (like OKCupid). If you're budget-constrained, that's no excuse to set aside the idea of online dating.
4. Where else Are You Going to Meet Men?
Let's face it: it's hard to meet men these days, mostly because they seem to be in hiding (or playing MW3 on XBOX). Online dating has a distinct advantage over the club, school, and work: there are literally hundreds and thousands of men to choose from!
5. It Makes You Think
If you haven't had much success in dating lately, maybe it's time to reconsider what you're looking for, and online dating forces to you do just that. When you're creating a dating profile, most sites will ask you very specific questions to figure out where you are in life, where you're going, and who you want to share that journey with you.
6. It Works!
Three of my friends and even my mother met their husbands on dating websites, so there must be something there that works. Is it the matching system, or just plain the variety of men on the site? Who knows... but it works!
7. It's Fun!
There's something truly fun and exciting about checking your inbox every morning and finding it full of messages from guys around the world who want to chat you up, and local guys who want to meet you. It's also exciting to meet some of these guys and see if there's a connection. It's fun!
See, there are loads of good reasons to try online dating, or to give it anther chance! I've met quite a few nice guys online, and I have another first date this week! After reading m list, will you try online dating? Why or why not? Please share!
