Technology and Online Dating

The evolution of technology has impacted all aspects of our lives and that includes how we date.  Once we used to only date people we met through friends, school or work.  There was also the bar scene but that quickly got tiresome.  You had to spend time together and try and figure out if there was any interest and then decide if it was worth it.  Today everything is different, now we rely on online dating sites to help us to meet new people.

What’s So Special about a Dating Site?

A couple of things make dating sites special, first it allows you to meet people you wouldn’t necessarily come into contact with in your everyday life.  There are tons of different dating sites catering to a wide variety of different demographics.  Some site allow you to join for free while others have a lengthy screening process and charge a hefty fee to use their site.

All dating site whether free or premium has the same purpose, to help you meet new people.  You get to shortcut all of the “getting to know you” part and go directly to people who share your interests.  You can browse through other profiles to find the people who share your interests and that you have common ground with and then connect with them.  If there is a spark then you can move on to meeting up in the real world.  No more boring bad dates only to find you have no chemistry at all.  Here is a closer look at how they work.

Being Anonymous

Initially there is a degree of anonymity to online dating, the last thing you want to do is put your personal information out there.  Never give out your address, phone number or anything else to someone you met online.  Keep a layer of protection between yourself and others until you have met and established some trust.  No matter how many times you chat with someone online they are still a stranger to you until you meet in person.  Always meet in a public place the first couple of times until you are completely comfortable.

If you haven’t jumped on the online dating bandwagon yet then you should consider giving it a try.  You have nothing to lose but some time and everything to gain if you find the right person. Find the right site and sign up today!
