Are There Any Advantages of Online Dating?

Updated on August 31, 2012

The Internet has changed our lives and our habits. Many intelligent, honest and interesting, but single people prefer to communicate and meet someone special through the Internet. Are there any advantages in online dating? We think there are some, let us consider some of them:

At present, there are a great number of internet singles online dating sites. Some of their clients had serious intentions; they really want to find a girl / boyfriend, long life partner.

The main advantage of dating through the Internet is anonymity. Singles online dating sites offer a huge number of candidates and selection of the person with whom you wish to communicate depends on you. No need to contact the first singles to spread all the information about yourself. Reading other members profiles you can choose somebody who share the same interests and introduce yourself only when you are ready to get to know that person better.

Without a doubt, writing a letter to a stranger is much easier than in real life, for example, you can not approach a stranger on the street with a proposal to get to know him/her. For girls and women this way of dating in our society in general is not acceptable, it is not an usual thing even for men. On an online dating website making the first step is equally allowed, for both men and women.

If communication gets started and you are not satisfied by the candidate because he/she does not meet your requirements it is very simple to stop anytime you wish without any consequences for you. Therefore, security is one of the best characteristic of Internet dating.

In case you begin a successful connection with one of the candidate, as a result of correspondence, both parties get to know better each other (their inner world, tastes, interests, habits, views).

A distinctive feature of Internet dating is the openness, which allows you to find out more about the person you met on online dating site. Let us agree that there are inner thoughts we simply can not discuss sometimes with people in real life but we can share them with someone virtual.

You have a great opportunity to think carefully what to answer and what to ask, nobody is rushing you.

A very important fact to take into consideration while corresponding with someone online; you will gain valuable communication skills. Feelings and emotions take the form of words. Believe me; this experience will play an invaluable service to continue knowing better your new acquaintance.

Online dating

Everything is mysterious...
Everything is mysterious...

Everything is mysterious and wrapped in expectation of meeting new online friend in real. True happiness will fill the soul, if the image that filled your imagination during the virtual communication will coincide with the real one. But if this does not happen, do not despair, because you gained a new friend.

In real life, sometimes things are different. The first thing that appear in real life is good looking appearance, but when we get to know that person better, his/her inner world, the interests and views on the different things you get disappointed because they are completely not what you expected.

Moreover, nowadays the Internet has become for many available - people have access to the Internet at work and at home.

There is a great opportunity to find your compatibility matches. All these kind of people just do not have time to go to a club to meet someone. They are just too busy for that.

Online dating - is only an additional opportunity, if you want the bonus, which gives you the chance to meet your special one on the Internet. Why not use this method in addition to all those used for centuries?

      Interesting hub. Online romance might not be my cup of tea personally, but I know people who swear by it. It's a lot to do with trusting if the person online is who they really say they are. The net is becoming more and more part of that whole dating thing. So it has its uses. Cheers.

      Hey Cags! Nice to see you! :) Hope everything is ok with you and yours.

      Agree with you, actually I am going to write another hub about disadvantages of online dating.

      Honestly, I do not have any experience in online dating and I am speaking more about my friends and cousins experiences. There are some successful marriages and I am really happy for them.

      Personally, I spent a lot of time on There.com some years ago, met a lot of interesting people, made a few good friends and even fall in love...

      Everything is in the past now, things changed and even there.com doesnt exist anymore...

      Cags, thank you for your visit and your kind words!

      Hey Niki, I was bouncing around HubPages and came to your profile to check on your latest stuff. I haven't been reading much lately, but thought I would check out this hub. There are good things and bad things about Internet Dating sites, but I'm not going to list them, because I don't want to take away from your hub, which was nicely written. I voted it up and marked it as useful. I do hope you are extremely careful if you are attempting to use online dating sites. However, you seem to be a sensible lady and pretty smart too, so I don't think I need to worry about that. Thank you for sharing. :)
