The average person has an incredibly busy lifestyle. There’s work, the gym, friends, hobbies, seeing your family, looking after kids maybe, evening classes, chores, looking after pets, looking after yourself, and maybe the occasional night of sleep – if you can fit it in. Finding the time to go dating with all that is near impossible, so more and more people are looking for ways that make it quicker and easier.
Speed dating is one option, but there is always at least one guy with a weird smile who keeps talking about his collection of faulty jigsaws at home. There’s too much risk factor with speed dating; you might end up being forced to spend an hour with a group of incredibly strange people. Which is a complete waste of the precious time you’re trying to save. More and more people are realizing that the best way to quickly find a special someone is online dating.
Although it’s had a stigma of being a tad geeky in the past, online dating is now a totally acceptable way of finding dates. In fact it’s starting to be recognized as one of the best ways of finding someone you’ll be compatible with; you’re not just talking to strangers you know nothing about, but searching for people with similar values and interests. Less time will be wasted on dinner with carnivorous heavy metal fans when you’re a classical violin playing vegan; more time will be spent attending concerts and cooking with someone who likes the same things as you.
It’s also a much easier way of getting a date in the first place. How would you usually get a date? Pick out nice outfits, carefully fix your hair and make-up, go out to bars or clubs and try and catch someone’s eye? That’s hours spent on preparation, hours spent actually looking for a date, and a potential outcome of finding nothing. So much easier and quicker to get home from work, throw on a pair of sweats, grab a glass of wine and hit the internet.
Plus, when you’re online dating you don’t have to worry about whether the guy you’re flashing your best smile at is interested in a long term relationship or a one night stand. The information is all clearly there on their profiles. Say goodbye to spending six months with someone only to find out they are absolutely against having kids, say hello to knowing straight away whether the plan of the person you’re daydreaming about marrying is daydreaming about marrying you too.
Online dating is by far the most practical way to find a date. You won’t have to sit through dates with people with such different interests that it’ll never work, you don’t have to spend hours trawling bars and clubs for a date, and the only dates you do go on will be with people who you have a good chance of it working with. So what are you waiting for? You’ve no time to lose.
