Finding someone to date, fall in love with and eventually start a family with is hard enough as it is. Combined with the need to keep up your social life, spend time with family and friends, do well in your career, get an education, and get enough rest on top of it all, finding the one for you is downright difficult. You have to go out with the intent of finding love to make any progress at all. This is where online dating does the work for you.

It’s not just anyone. It’s everyone.

The range of people who participate in online dating websites makes the odds of finding the right person for you much greater. It takes out the limiting factor of who you will run into at the store or who your friends know. Dating websites take the guess work out of who is in the world, giving you only the option of who actually wants to meet you and who is interested in you.

Find who you’re looking for.

Most websites offer a choice factor that will let you limit, or take the limits out of, the people you see. Age, gender, religion, personality – given the right website you can find exactly the type of person that you need in your life. Some websites are also geared towards specific needs and wants, so finding someone that will fit exactly to you and into your life is easier than ever.


Meeting people and weeding out the catches from the not-so-great ones takes a lot of time, and most people just can’t take that time out of their busy schedules. But online dating takes minutes. After setting up a profile, you can receive email alerts about new matches, effectively allowing you to meet people without doing anything but signing up.

Face-to-face rejection can be hard.

Asking someone face-to-face only to be turned down is difficult on everyone. But by using an online dating site, you’re able to pick and choose who you get in contact with, and who you give your contact information to. The communication is easy and can be done from your computer, and you are able to give out as much or as little as you like, according to what you want.

Getting to know someone. 

Just seeing someone you pass by on the street that you are interested in gives you only a split second to catch their attention. By using an online method, you are able to give them an entire abstract on who you are and what you are about instantly. They can see exactly what you want them to see about you; in the same amount of time it takes to catch someone’s eye in a bookstore. And the best part is that it works both ways.

Technology has allowed us to create an easier and better method of dating. Use it.
