I’ve found that it’s really easy to find happiness on free dating sites if you’re willing to open yourself up. When I first started trying to find someone online, I was so timid about the idea. I thought the only people on those sites were people who couldn’t find themselves a date in the real world because there was something wrong with them. Thanks to that mentality I didn’t find a date through a dating search for nearly a year. Then my best friend met his girlfriend, who is one of the coolest people I have ever met in my entire life, online. I started thinking that if she was online looking for someone, then other people just as cool must be as well. Once I really put effort into finding someone through the internet, it became a great time.
If you’re still standoffish on finding someone online, here’s the reasons I’ve found to give it a solid try.
There’s complete anonymity. When you’re first talking to someone, you don’t have to give out any information you don’t want. With blind dates, you need to be upfront and honest about things that you maybe wouldn’t want people to know right away. Your full name, your personal details, your job… You don’t need to give out any of that on the internet.
You can block the creepers. Ever get stuck in a conversation with someone and wish there was a way to just make them go away? Well in online dating, you don’t have to politely talk yourself away from the person. With one click, they’re out of your hair.
You can do it at your convenience. If you ask a single person in the working world why they’re single, you’ll probably hear that they simply don’t have time to date. With online dating, you can do it when you want. During your morning coffee, on your lunch breaks, while you’re getting ready for bed… There’s no time limitations on when you have to be online and when you have to talk to someone. It’s all up to you.
You have options. When dating in the real world, it’s not often you have a slew of people introducing themselves to you. Since there’s millions of people dating online, and more signing up daily, you have more people to choose from than you know what to do with. In one week you can converse with a plethora of people giving you options on who and how you want to date.
The potential in online dating is endless. If you keep your mind open and concentrate on the positives, then you can open yourself up to a world of possibilities.
