|Online Dating Beginner's
Free dating onlineyou've heard
about it, you've read about it, maybe you even have a friend who's doing
it. You're thinking of giving it a try yourself. But how do you know if it's
the right thing for you? Here's a quick quiz to help you determine whether
1. Are you dissatisfied with the
traditional ways of meeting people to date? Two of the most likely places
to meet people to date are in school and at work. If neither has helped you
find a mate so far, then singles groups are often the next thing people try.
The good thing about singles groups is that it puts you in front of other
single people who are clearly interested in finding someone to date and possibly
to mate. But if you've tried that route and still aren't meeting anyone,
then free online dating can be the best next step for you.
2. Are you over 30, over 40 or
beyond? It gets more difficult to meet people to date as you get older.
Many of your friends are already married and the bar scene has lost its appeal.
That doesn't mean there's no one out there for you. It's just not as easy
to find one another! The world of on line dating gives you access to an almost
unlimited supply of potential partners, more than you could ever meet any
3. Do you have a good sense of who
you are and what you want in a partner? The great thing about getting
older is that we usually know ourselves better and have a more realistic
idea of what kind of person would be a good match for us. And hopefully,
you have a better idea of what you can give to a relationship, not just what
you want to get.
On line dating allows you to search for
a partner based on what is most important to you. Looking at a person's profile
online allows you to find out much more about them than you'd normally know
about anyone you meet offline.
4. Do you know enough about computers
to browse the internet and use e-mail, or are you willing to learn? You
don't need to own a computer; you just need access to one. And if you don't
know how to use e-mail yet it's not that difficult to learn. Anyone who is
sufficiently motivated can do it.
5. Are you willing to be proactive
to get what you desire? On line dating does call for some effort on your
part. You have to find a good dating service site and create a profile about
yourself so others can find you. You have to put in the time to search the
profiles on your site and contact people who interest you. If you're unwilling
to do a little bit of work, then free dating online won't work for you.
6. Are you willing to overcome your
preconceived ideas about whether nice people should get involved
in on line dating? It's becoming more acceptable every day to meet people
through free dating online. And the people who do it are likely to be more
educated and better off financially than the average. Sounds like a good
group of people to pick from, doesn't it?
7. Do you enjoy writing or are you
willing to improve your writing skills? Communication on the internet
favors those who write well. You make your first impression based on what
you write in your profile and your e-mail messages. The good news is that
with the great spelling and grammar checking features available in most e-mail
programs, there is no excuse for being a poor writer any more. Anyone of
average intelligence can learn to write well enough to attract a partner.
It just takes the willingness to learn.
