Online dating has really taken over and it’s definitely not age specific anymore but should dating be scientific or spontaneous? Can we be strategic about dating or is it better to just be ourselves? Here we talk about dating and whether or not it’s better to have a game plan or just play it casual.
Should dating be scientific or spontaneous?
With so much choice out there when it comes to online dating and dating websites it may seem to make sense to be a little strategic about your dating. According to recent scientific study the best advice is ‘aim high, keep it brief and be patient.’ Which sounds like fairly good advice to me. Aiming high means you be taking anything that comes along which is always good advice in my opinion. Keep your messages brief, no one wants an essay about your life history for a first message. And being patient is also great advice, although it may seem like it’s taking forever to find your soul mate. Nothing worth having ever came easy though right?
Although could being spontaneous be the answer to online dating? Why can’t we just be ourselves and take online dating as it comes? What if the next person you message your life history to ends up being the love of your life? I’m not sure if being too strategic wouldn’t make it a little too forced. I don’t think that everything in life can be planned too much and there is always the possibility that things will happen differently to different people. No two stories will ever be the same when it comes to dating.
Why online dating?
So many people are choosing online dating such as websites like we love dates as a way to meet new people these days. It’s often a more convenient and easier way to meet new people without having to go out to dating or networking events. A lot of people these days have so many other life commitments whether that be a family to take care of or job or career commitments. This means that meeting someone in the ‘real world’ becomes difficult because of time or maybe you don’t feel like you go anywhere other than work and the supermarket.
It is really easy to set up a profile and start talking to new people from the comfort of your own home. It can also take some of the stress out of meeting someone new in person if you’re not the most confident of people. It also opens you up to whole load of different people that you wouldn’t necessarily come across in your everyday life.
Different types of dating websites
There are so many different dating websites out there that there is definitely one for everyone. There are divorced dating sites, sites for over 40’s or even dating apps that you can have on your phone. Online dating is definitely for everyone no matter what your age or whether you’ve been married before.
