The Ins And Outs Of Online Dating

  • by  David Chastain

Dating online is a new medium and some studies have had higher success rates in getting that first date than the conventional method of going to a public place and meeting someone. The reason why there is a higher rate is because people only meet others who share the same interests.

This new method of interaction and hopefully meeting the right person has its advantages and disadvantages.

1. Security

The advantage of personally signing up on an online dating service is that the person can meet many people without the risk of revealing one’s personal information. The only time this happens is when the searcher does it voluntarily to the potential partner.

The disadvantage here is that information, even in general, can be fabricated. Some sites don’t have a place on the page to show the picture of the person and even it is available, people don’t put up a picture and can pretend to be someone and prey on an innocent victim.

2. Affordable

By paying a small membership fee and being a member of an online dating service, a person will be able to save money on someone who shares the same interest and actually have a good time.

The disadvantage here is that though the person may save some money in the short term, it does not guarantee the date may work and the person has to search again. The match making service simply delayed the inevitable of spending more money rather than saving.

3. Broad Market

Dating online allows one to meet people from other cities or even other states. It helps a person make new friends and even build up a network that can even be used for other functions such as business.

The disadvantage of finding love through online dating is that given the distance, one of the people has to make the important decision to relocate to be together leaving friends and family behind.

4. Customer base

The dating service helps people who have a hard time finding the ideal person in life by having a huge membership base giving a wide range of choices of people to choose from.

The problem here is that eventually the number of people will decrease since other matches will happen. If one does not act quickly, one will miss the right person to someone else.

Online dating can be fun, whether to meet new friends or meet that potential partner. This match making service using the computer is for young and old just remember there are no guarantees. It is still a gamble one must take in reaching that goal of finding a soul mate.
