Once upon a time, dating agencies were once considered places for sad, desperate and lonely people unable to form relationships in the traditional way, such as meeting people at work or through friends and family.
Today’s world is very different, there are more single people living alone and a greater number of lone single parents. The advent of the internet means that more people work from home and this means less social contact and greater isolation.
However the internet can also up a whole new opportunity for socialising. It has become the first place many of us search for products to shop for, do our banking, pay bills and talk to friends. You don’t even have to leave your home if you don’t want to!
Online dating doesn’t restrict you to your local neighbourhood but opens up the whole world! You can meet people you wouldn’t normally meet with traditional dating where you’re confined to dating others from within a particular geographic location.
Online dating is quite safe compared to meeting new people in bars or clubs. You can spend time getting to know someone and form a relationship before actually meeting them and you don’t have to agree to meet someone you’ve met online until you are ready.
For many people today time is of a premium and trawling round bars and clubs in the hope of a chance meeting with Mr or Miss right can be very time consuming. People are tired of the traditional dating scene and the games and rejections that are associated with it. You can be very specific in who you want to meet online and you need only contact people who you feel would be right for you.
