In case you haven’t noticed, online is dating is prevalent nowadays. And in a world where we’ve been stuck indoors and lost a year to lockdowns and restrictions, who can blame us? It seems like online has been the online way to make a connection.
And whilst people used to feel their cheeks flush with embarrassment when saying “I met my boyfriend online”, it’s now the norm, and you’ll find people don’t even bat an eyelid anymore. Why? Because online dating is actually pretty awesome. And here are four reasons why…
You’re more likely to stumble across someone with similar interests.
Back in the days of looking for suitors in bars and clubs, you’d spy a hottie across the room and wanna go in for the kill. But what on earth do you actually know about them? That’s right – zilch! Online dating makes finding a connection a tonne easier as it gives people a chance to showcase their personality and interests on first impression. Perhaps you’re a massive music fan, or you’re super outdoorsy? Well, so is someone else is out there in the big wide world of dating, and you’ll find them a lot quicker online than you will in person. So get online and find that interest-sharing lover, and you’ll doubt have tonnes to talk about on your first date. And then the second date, and probably the third…
You can sign up to super specific dating sites.
If you’re very particular when it comes to your hunt for the perfect man or woman, then online dating is definitely the way to go. There are a huge number of super specific dating sites you could get your teeth in to. Did you know there’s a dating site for mullet lovers, and one for clowns looking to find love? Really. I’m not kidding! And though these may make you chuckle and seem a bit ridiculous, they’re proof that online dating will help you find exactly what you’re looking for in a partner. Perhaps you want to meet someone who shares a love of gaming? Or if long distance is a deal breaker for you and you’re wanting to stick to Glasgow dating, you want a local site, like a Glasgow dating site? Either way, the internet will find it for you!
No longer will you have to awkwardly approach people.
When I’m down at the pub and spy a guy I’d be interested in chatting to, it usually never happens, or it at least takes some serious hyping up from my friends and a drop of alcohol. Online dating takes that awkward element away, and is great for shy people. You can message people you wouldn’t normally approach in real life – the worst they can do is not respond, and no one even has to know. It’s between you and the internet.
You can do it all in the comfort of your jim-jams.
Let’s face it – we all love being in our comfies and our pyjamas, now more than ever. And online dating has the beautiful perk of being behind a screen. Sure, your dating profile might only show the super sophisticated and sexy side of you, but while chatting away to your endless matches, you can do it all looking however you please. They don’t need to know you’re sat in a mucky t-shirt and granny knickers scoffing Pringles on the sofa…
