There are countless people who tell me about how internet dating is not right for them – but is that really the case? If you were to ask the average user, they would tell you that there was a time when they didn’t think it was right for them either. Eventually, they gave it a try and were amazed at the results that they got. There are three types of people that can benefit most from online dating.
The Busy Body
Despite the legends, Cupid is not waiting in the bushes to stick you with an arrow as you pass a stranger on the street. If you want to have a dating life or meet new people, then you have to make an effort. You have to go where the people go – parties, local events, bars, theaters, etc. Not everyone has this luxury.
Many jobs are demanding which means that the only people you see on a regular basis are either your co-workers or patients/clients/business relations. If your life is simply too busy for you to be out in the world trying to meet someone new, then online dating is the best choice.
For the life of me, I cannot convince a friend of mine to give online dating a try. He works in a dental lab with older men and women, has very few friends and only leaves the house for work and to run errands. Unless he develops the courage to ask out some girl at a grocery store, he is going to keep being alone. People who are labeled as “loners” have an introverted personality. This makes it harder for them to meet people in the real world.
An alternative to this is online dating, where you can meet and get to know someone new from the safety and security of your mobile device or computer. Once you think you’ve established a solid foundation then you can commit to a date in person.
The Baggage Holder
Do you think you have too much baggage? Everyone has some sort of emotional baggage when they enter a relationship. People who feel like they have too much baggage often fear that someone will not want to date them. This might be the truth with people you meet every day, but you have an entirely different dating pool online.
Internet dating allows you to connect with people from all sorts of backgrounds. You have divorced men and women with children, older individuals, younger individuals, late-in-life virgins, religious types, and much more. The options are vast, and there is going to be someone who does not care about the “baggage” that you are carrying around.
Not everyone has had a prolific dating life during their adulthood. I know individuals who have been single for decades and have not cared. Anyone who feels like they do not know how to meet new people or what to do with a new relationship is a newbie – and online dating is right for them. Not only will you have access to numerous potential mates, but there are built-in support systems, chat rooms, and forums on many of the dating sites that will help you learn more about yourself, your budding relationship, and how to make it last.
