Dating Services For Dummies

With a multitude of dating services out there on the web today, singles have never been more spoiled for choice when it comes to simple and convenient ways to meet people online. A Google search for ‘dating’ will bring up millions of results, all offering you the chance to find love and happiness. Many sites offer guaranteed results, but is this really possible and how do you know whether a site is for real or whether they are simply offering huge promises with little results?

Before you consider joining a dating site, you will first need to realise that in the dating game, there are seldom any fool-proof guarantees. When it comes to human nature, and all the complexities and emotions that each of us posses, not to mention compatibility and chemistry, love at first click (or first sight) is not always something that we can expect. Dating services can only promise to provide you with a range of good possible matches, the rest is up to fate, and up to the parties involved.

You will also need to take the following facts into account when considering dating services to use:

  • The free sites you may see generally offer the most basic services. These may allow you to post a profile, view profiles and occasionally even send and receive messages from possible interests, however there is little if any screening done and the service is limited in terms of matching of prospective partners. Pay to use services however tend to offer a broader range of services, and also have a high level of quality and attention.
  • While a good service will carefully screen all applicants, it is still important to remember how important it is to stay safe at all times. Never give our your details to someone you have just met online, and do not assume that that good looking man is who he says he is – some people lacking confidence may gloss over the truth or even post a fake or outdated photograph. When meeting someone for the first time, arrange to have coffee in a public place and keep it short and sweet – there will be plenty of time to slowly get to know people, to ensure that they are safe to be with.
  • Consider dating services that have a good reputation, and avoid ones that do not have a good reputation. Ask around, look for testimonials, don’t be afraid to ask for references, and always do your research before signing up.
  • Be clear about your relationship goals, and state these clearly on your profile. If you are more interested in making friends, networking or casual dating, then this should be indicated so that prospective matches understand what you are seeking. You do not wish to spend an evening with someone, only to find out towards the end that you have different relationship goals.
  • Look out for singles events as well as one on one dating opportunities. These give you a number of ways to meet singles and learn to enjoy yourself when dating. Newly divorced singles and those coming off a spell of singledom are able to ease back into the dating game without the pressure of one on one date, while also getting the benefit of more individual dating experiences. Choose dating services that offer a range of options to suit your needs.
