Online Dating Advantages

Many people are against online dating and of course you do hear the horror stories. If you are careful and safe, online dating can be a way to lead you to many amazing people. I know many couples that have been together quite sometime that met online…I happened to be of them and celebrated my 4 year anniversary just yesterday. For those of you already doing the online dating thing, good luck and hope you find what you’re looking for! Of course you can debate the advantages and disadvantages of online dating endlessly, but let’s look at the advantages of online dating websites and be positive about this new way of meeting people.

1. Because online dating is more about interacting by email and other electronic means than it is about admiring each other’s looks, who you are plays a greater part from the beginning than it does in an offline relationship.

2. Anonymity is also an advantage of online dating websites because it allows people to speak more freely.

3. You can rule people out based on their profile while selecting others who look interesting based on their profile information – definitely a big advantage of online dating over offline.

4. The factor in 3 above means that you save a lot of time in finding the right person.

5. If you are rejected by someone online it affects you less than if you were dating face-to-face: that has to be another amongst the big advantages of online dating websites.

6. Online dating is generally safer than offline dating. You don’t share your contact details with someone until you are really sure you want to, someone you have been talking to for a while and with whom you feel comfortable.

7. It’s very exciting! Offline dating is very exciting too of course, but the power and functionality you have in looking at lots of people’s profiles and contacting lots of people who sound nice is a very stimulating thing in itself!

Romance Red Flags

Remember the movie, “He’s just not into you”? Well single ladies looking for love could actually learn a thing or two from it. Before being married, I dated quite a bit! Here are some of the red flags that kept me moving on to meeting new people and not wasting time with someone that wasn’t into me.

If he says to you “I only want to be with you”, pay attention. The question that should come to mind is, ‘Well, who else? Who else would you want to be with? Why am I the only one?’ What does that even mean?

He says, “I want you to have my baby”, Trust me, that very often is said in the passion of the moment and he means it in the moment but it’s not going to be the way he feels the next day. A real man would not say these words to you just to make sure he hits home base.

He’s NOT affectionate and/or if you’re kissing and he’s kissing you back but you find his eyes are open and he’s looking around, you should know that’s a sign to consider.

He makes AND breaks promises. If he’s always promising you, “We’re going to go out”, “I promise I’m going to call/text”, ‘We’re going to meet my family”, blah blah blah…but it doesn’t happen, there’s a reason he’s not keeping the promises. That’s a huge red flag!

He always talks about the future, but the future never comes. It’s about what’s going to happen, what’s always ahead…but you’re left dealing with what DIDN’T happen. Bottom line: If you find you’re waiting for something more to happen between the two of you and the only thing that seems to be happening is that you’re having great sex, he may be faking the LOVING PART. Men will sometimes tell you what you want to hear to keep you around for the sex.

Good luck ladies!
