A recent report states that 35% of couples married between 2005 and 2012 met through an online dating site /. Furthermore, partners who met through the site are more satisfied with their relationships, and less likely to break up. Positive news about on-line dating continues to mount, and for good reason. Here are just a few reasons online dating may be the key for you.
It’s easier than normal dating.
Meeting people sucks. The idea of going to an event or party, simply with the hope of meeting someone new is both frustrating and inefficient. How many times have you met a wonderful girl or guy, only to learn ten minutes into the conversation that they’re already taken or just not looking to date?
It’s really not that weird
As mentioned, more than a third of recent marriages started online. The stigma around using the web to find love has gone away as more and more people find success with it. At this point, it’s likely few people exist that don’t know of a friend or family member who found success online.
You already use the internet for everything else
From buying items to filing taxes, nearly every action which once required effort has – thankfully –become possible via a computer. The line between the internet and the real world grows smaller every day; on-line dating is merely an example of this.
It’s only “online” dating at the start.
Here’s how the on-line dating process usually goes. One person (usually the guy) messages a girl (as well as dozens of others). The recipient responds to the message, a few more messages get passed, phone numbers are exchanged, and a couple days later the two meet. At that very second, the two are just on a date; if they like each other they keep meeting, no computer required.
So why not give it a try. Hell, if you’re in the San-Francisco and use OKC, you may stumble across a certain charming, blonde-haired, blue-eyed web blogger who’s new in town.
