1. It is becoming more and more popular
The use of the internet and computer, in general, is becoming more popular day by day, and with this internet dating as well. The number of websites that specialize in online dating is rising. Studies show that more than 40 million people in the U.S. only have tried online dating.
If you consider that the internet connects the whole world that makes that number multiplied ten times at least. Now that is a huge number of potential dates to choose from. And every day new members keep coming. Today one in every five relationships starts somewhere online – dating sites, social networks, or a mobile app designed for dating.
2. It gives you more choice
Meeting new people is not always an easy task, especially if you live in a small town. The Internet gives you the whole world to reach from your living room. The negative side is that it takes a bit of time to filter millions of users but that also means that you have millions of options.
You can choose from thousands of people that have the same interests as you and likes the things that you like. You can find your soul mate at the other side of the world and with traditional dating, you would never have a chance even to meet this person.
3. You can scan trough potential partners
On the dating site, you are usually asked to make your profile giving to the other basic information about yourself. And likewise, when you scan through potential dates you have a chance to get a glimpse of what kind of person is behind that username.
Usually, a few small things someone puts about him/herself can tell you a lot about his/her personality. You also choose time and place for such activity (break at work, at home in the evenings, early in the morning) and you can take all the time in the world.
4. It is safer
It is safer to meet someone for the first time online than it is in real life. Meeting people in the clubs, at the parties and other public places can be pretty unsafe. Online you have more time to estimate what kind of person is your potential date.
Just be sure not to give out your personal data if you are not completely sure in person from the net. Bad things happened everywhere but typically people are there for the same reason as you are – they want to meet somebody to hang out or to find his or her soul mate.
5. It is cheaper and more confortable
Maybe it is not a nice thing to say, but it is the truth. If you decided to go in the dating game for serious, taking the 10 girls out in one month can be a pretty big expense, while online you can start chatting with numerous partners and then eventually choose one to take out for real. And you can do all of this from the comfort of your living room or your bedroom.
