There are a lot of wonderful things about being in a relationship, cuddles/snuggles, having someone who cares, watching movies/netflix in bed all day and lots of other things. However finding someone to do all those things with can be a difficult thing to do. Dating is not like it used to be, now days a lot of dating is done online. It is not uncommon, my cousin met her husband online. I have friends that met their boyfriends online.
Dating Sites: I personally use Oasis.com, I like the layout and the ease to use, and it’s free !! Plenty of Fish is also another very popular dating site. Here are a few things to remember when using a dating site.
1. Choose the right one for you
2. Use recent photos
3. Tell the TRUTH
4. Don’t be shy fill in the profile fully and add/contact people (you aren’t going to get anywhere if you are not going to put yourself out there)
5. Ask questions
6. Flirt a little
7. YOU CAN ASK FOR THE DATE!!!!
The thing is you will have to wade through the creepers, and people who are literally looking for a quick hook up and people who aren’t your type and the douche bags but there is no point in giving up at the first hurdle. I met my ex on this site, the only problem we had was the distance and the time frame he was starting up his own business and I was in University and it was hard and as much as we wanted to make it work it wasn’t. That didn’t mean to say we didn’t give in a good old hard college try. The thing you have to remember is not to emotionally invest to soon, you may get stood up (I did the other day, I got angry and got over it). If you are willing to try then you can find someone.
