Online Dating, Why Not?

So, you're looking to meet that "special someone". You have tried the bars, blind dates, churches, grocery stores, etc, all with little or no success. What have you got to lose by trying one, or even a few, of the many different online singles services? Absolutely nothing!

As a former dating service professional, with both matchmaking and video dating services, I would encourage anyone to spend a little time on their computer and explore the possibilities available with online dating. For a low cost, convenient, private avenue for searching for other quality singles, online dating can be a very rewarding and interesting experience.

Online services typically charge a monthly subscription fee around $20 - $30 for a "Standard" package or program. These fees can increase, as you add more of the features offered through the service, often times enhancing your membership. Some services even offer their standard features FREE! Either way, it is a relatively low investment compared to the thousands of dollars, and long term memberships, typically charged by the traditional dating services. Don't get me wrong, although traditional dating services and matchmakers can be quite expensive, many people have enjoyed great successes through their memberships and you may eventually want to try one as well. But to start, go cheap, go convenient, go online!

There are some online dating sites that also do compatibility testing and personality profiling. These features help members find other quality singles who are similar to themselves and complement their lifestyle. The testing and profiling also helps determine what qualities and characteristics one should look for in a mate. This might seem a bit confusing and overwhelming, but it is actually quite easy. Most sites have online help should you have any questions or need assistance. Some sites will even offer suggestions on possible matches.

Typically, no personal information is disclosed between members until both parties agree. All communication can be done through the online website. So, your e-mail, address, phone number, etc., is all get kept private and secure.

One of the nicest features of online dating is the ability to work on your membership in the comfort and privacy of your own home. Whether you are a morning or an evening person, there are no restricting office hours. You can work on your membership when you want, from any location with a computer, for as long as you want. You are in complete control.

Online dating has come a long way, and many singles have benefited and met their "special someone" through the internet. But, do your homework. Research and compare the different sites. Read and understand the membership agreements. Do searches for positive, and negative, information on the sites you are considering. The Singles/Dating business is very popular and competitive, so you need to educate yourself. Take your time, investigate your options, and online dating can be a very exciting, enjoyable, and rewarding experience. Who knows? You might even meet Mr. or Mrs. Right. So, why not?
