Is Online Dating For You?


Are you tired of meeting up with the wrong guy for a date? Do you often ask yourself, “Where are the guys?” Are you wondering or maybe even panicking that you’re not meeting the right guy? What can you do? Where can you go?

Well, perhaps, you can go online. With online dating becoming more and more convenient these days, it’s definitely an option for you.

Clicking To Find A Date

More and more folks are turning to online dating. Well, you can’t blame them; it’s convenient after all. It can also save you a lot of time. Clicking to find a date is better than going through all the trouble of interfacing with someone that you can’t stand from the start.

Interestingly, online dating has been found to be more successful than the traditional manner of dating. In one of the episodes of Fox News, anchorman Neil Cavuto shares an exciting and enticing fact about online dating.

“That special someone that you’ve been looking for is out there. So keep pointing, keep clicking.”

He also adds that people who meet online are more likely to be happy together.

“More of them are likely to be happy and more likely to have longer lasting marriages as well.”

But has this been proven at all?

What The Experts Have To Say

One relationship expert says otherwise. According to Maryanne Comaroto, a very small percentage of people dating online end up in a long term relationship.

“Actually the truth is there are about fifty-four million single Americans right now. Forty million of whom have tried online dating yet a very small percentage of those people actually end up in a long term marriage …”

Based on the statistics shown on this particular episode of Fox Business News, twenty percent of Americans have tried online dating. While the numbers are small, it certainly does not mean that online dating won’t work for you.

It definitely worked for Jennifer Flaa. Blogger and freelance writer, she shares some effective tips. These tips have helped her find the right guy online.

  • Be careful and don’t trust easily. Safety comes first.
  • Use your better judgement.
  • Know when it’s time to move on from one profile to another.
  • Be assertive. If you think it won’t work with a particular person, say it. It will save you and the person a lot of time.
  • Gather as much information before meeting up but don’t expect too much.
  • Arrange a brief initial meeting.
  • Meet in a new place, a place where you’re not a regular customer.
  • Be honest. If you don’t find your date interesting, move on.
  • Be yourself.

In spite of the statistics, online dating does work for other folks. So it wouldn’t hurt to try it. Who knows, you might just become part of the small percentage that have found happiness online.
