4 Surprising Ways Online Dating Can Change Your Life...

With so many engagements and marriages following online dating, you would think there would be more single ladies and guys getting on the internet dating train. But dating can be scary and nerve wrecking no matter where you meet, but maybe online dating can help make it less scary and more fun to meet someone new. Liz from We Love Dates is guest blogging with us today and is here to share 4 Surprising Ways Online Dating Can Change Your Life...
Meet Love Online...
For most people, online dating is a means to an end-you sign up, upload your most flattering photos and say all the right things in your profile. What most people don't realize though, is that online dating can change more than your relationship status-I should know, I once made the crazy decision to go on an online date everyday for a month...I learned a lot! So how can online dating change your life?

1. Hello, Confidence...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

The best thing about online dating is the options you have...it's like Christmas morning, all day everyday. When you realize how many options you have, you start to realize that you don't have to settle. You hold the power, and that's what we like to call hella sexy.

2. You Can Talk to Anyone...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

It doesn't matter how many emails you've exchanged, or how many hours you've logged on gchat-you never really know someone until you meet them in person. And as any online dater knows, sometimes first online dates are pretty damn awkward. I mean, you're meeting a virtual (hot!) stranger in real life...it's not always easy to get the conversation rolling. After your 4th or 5th first online date though, you'll be asking thought provoking questions like a pro, and tossing your hair and laughing at all the right times.

3. You Figure out What You Truly Want...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

When you're faced with tons of options, it forces you to be a bit more selective-and this means you have to determine who it is you're looking for. What are your deal breakers? Your must haves? Your time is precious, so you don't want to waste it on someone who just isn't right...use this time as an opportunity to narrow in on what really is important to you in a guy.

4. Location Doesn't Matter...

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Traditional dating avenues are friends, school, work, the hot guy in the grocery store...but with online dating, the world is at your fingertips! Ok, I realize how cheesy that sounds, but stay with me. There is something exciting about knowing you could meet anyone from anywhere, at anytime. Online dating often gets a negative rap, but in some ways, it's even more romantic than "normal" dating. You aren't worried with logistics at first, so you're able to keep your heart open-and if you do end up meeting someone from far away, you can always make it work.
