On the traditional dating scene, one of the more frustrating aspects is figuring out where to go to try to meet singles you might be attracted to. While there are always people frequenting night clubs and local taverns they still might not be the best place to meet someone. The venue you go to for your dating search might be full up but given the location or the night you go you might be treated to a population not so very attracted or attractive to you. The expense involved in this gamble; cost of transportation, making sure are outfitted with the right clothes, buying drinks and paying for a cover charge adds up quickly. There is also the reality that some people who go to night club are not even looking to date, only there with friends to drink or people watch. But we can eliminate these variable frustrations culling through online Dating personals.
Learning about a potential match, even through the brevity of a personal, makes searching already better then stepping into a club blind.. Using all the tools of online dating-digital dating personals only being one of them-sees us consider the web as a true alternative venue to those placed we usually hunt in. And in this venue the people who are looking for dates, who come in to join a social portal or site, who leave their personals, do not have to be present, as they do in a nightclub, for us to view them!
In some ways the net is static, what we put out there on the web stays and is seen by plenty of people. But dating personals, chatting, even profile pics are part of the massive tapestry of online dating, a tapestry that has many layers to it and is ever forever undulant in other people’s viewing and adding to it and that covers as wide an area as it does population, a population one would never find even jumping from club to club on a Saturday night.
Dating personals offer you important pieces of information about your potential dates that would be impossible to know in a conventional dating environment. Not only are you able to clearly see what the person looks like in a variety of photos, you are able to learn things like marital status, if the person has or wants children, and more importantly if they share common interests with you. This is all learned as you decide if you want to contact them, and allows you to have great information to use to break the ice in your first contact with your potential date.
Dating isn’t supposed to be difficult. It’s a natural part of the human experience, and at times it seems that society has complicated things by enforcing strange rules and ideals of what dating should be, and where it should take place. Dating can be as simple as meeting someone walking down the street, but that again relies on pure chance. Instead of lowering the odds of meeting someone, searching through online personals actually increases your odds greatly.
One of the disadvantages of traditional dating and even paid local dating services is the poor amount of people that are available to you. While you may know of a local dating hot spot, there’s no guarantee that the nights you go will be the nights where the ideal match for you will be there, that the expense you outlay for that night will be worth it. The same applies for paid dating services where you record a video profile and have a match maker connect you with others. There may be no one that you’re interested in meeting there, and there’s no way to know until it’s too late.
But seeing a mess of dating personals online, being able to look at them at your leisure and cull through potential mates and dates to a workable realistic few makes one’s chances for dating that much better.
Everyone wants to find that perfect, smart, funny, compassionate, accomplished, romantic and caring individual that we all know we should be dating, but in these busy times it can be difficult for even the most fabulous of us to find an amazing person to spend time with. This is why we need good quality Dating personals so desperately whether we know it or not.
But let’s not get too carried away too quickly with all of the options presented for our perusal on the personal ads, we still have to bear in mind a few simple guidelines to keep ourselves out of trouble when we take a trip into the world of Internet dating.
No one wants to hear about your ex. No one. It doesn’t matter if your ex was the most amazing person ever to grace our humble planet or a crazed serial killer that you barely escaped from with your life, leave them in the past where they belong. No one wants to hear tacky lewd sexual comments from you in the first two minutes or so of chatting. No one. No matter how incredibly fabulous and irresistible you may believe yourself to be, it’s just plain creepy and off putting. No one on any respectable dating site wants to talk to you if you are just playing along with the game because you want to find someone to cheat on your spouse with. No one at all. There are other sites that cater to creeps, go find them. No one finds desperation attractive ever. No one. So no matter how swell you think someone is, or how excited you are about them, keep a lid on it for a little while and please keep a grip on yourself.
Of course, if you feel you would prefer to spend your time and your life all alone, feel free to simply ignore all of the above and see what it gets you. No one.
Finding the perfect person to spend your time with is easy when you take advantage of the Personals search sites available on the Internet. There are so many quality sites to choose from that it is easy to pick a winner for ourselves and begin an amazing and rewarding relationship.
But how do we possibly choose between all of the options available to us? Many people find that initiating a search on a dating site with specific criteria will still bring pages and pages of several hundred results. How then do we quickly separate the wheat from the chaff and find our Mr. or Ms. Right amongst all the hopefuls?
One good strategy is to eliminate anyone whose profile photo appears to have been taken in the 1980’s. You can spot the tell tale signs, the big hair, the white leather jacket, the Duran Duran poster hanging in the background. Another helpful tactic is to eliminate anyone who thinks they are the greatest thing since sliced bread. If reading someones positive attributes requires a coffee break to get through the list, you may be in trouble. If someone has to make a point of telling you several times about how honest they are, you can generally assume that they lie like cheap polyester rugs.
Next we come to that sticky and tricky topic of age. If someone refuses to give their age, or even worse, lies about it when it is obvious, it is best to steer clear as there will just be other cute little deceptions coming down the pike. If someone on a dating site is in their sixties and is looking for someone twenty to twenty five, I would also steer clear unless you are a gold digger who also happens to look nice in a nurse’s uniform.
Once you have weeded your garden diligently, you can expect your perfect prize winning rose to appear in full bloom and all its’ glory.
