Dating sites have little appeal to guys and gals who are in college or high school. The younger crowd has enormous networks of friends and social activities and have no need for a dating service.
The work a day world provides little opportunity to meet someone romantically because of intense professional pressures and self-education pursuits. Online dating services compound your chances to connect with someone who is a good match from the opposite sex. You get to filter and choose someone compatible with you; that is seldom found elsewhere.
The workplace chains men and women down. Dating clients or co-workers are a definite taboo. Time restraints because of professional enrichment opportunities change the game. If they do go out often they intimidate others and find it hard to connect. Often they cannot put their pictures up for fear of being recognized professionally.
Online dating sites are the logical choice for many. One of the best reasons to do this is because you do it at home at your own time. You can compare information online directly so you can filter for compatible people that meet your standards. There is a monster quantity of people you can choose from that won’t dry up. All you need to do is to cast your net into this sea and write a good profile and go looking for your potential mate.
Consumer Reports “CR’s Guide to Online Dating Sites.” is unbiased, do not accept advertising and operates in a way that is unbiased. The companies they recommend can’t buy in and manipulate Consumer Reports magazine to give a favorable score on their behalf. Consumer Reports highlights eHarmony , Match.com and Yahoo Personals as being the best of breed in dating services.
Yahoo Personals and Match.com gives you the basics at a fair price. Yahoo Personals and eHarmony have a compatibility tests that measures you according to your likes and dislikes. You’ll want to set up a private email account with Gmail, Hotmail or some private independent email service to monitor your email. For security, you don’t want to give out your real ISP email address right away.
eHarmony has more women then men. My guess is that most guys don’t have the patience to fill out the long “personality test.” Eharmony also allows you to post multiple pictures of yourself, post action shots as well as pictures of yourself relaxed.
If you are looking for a online dating site where you can put up and view others extended profiles, Match.com delivers. Long copy sells better than short copy in the online world so you need to make your profile stand out. Use long copy.
Yahoo Personals allows you to post multiple photos and chat and has good advice on how to get the hottest photo of yourself and post those photos. You also get timely dating and relationship advice and tips you may find helpful.
