Are You Ready for Online Dating?
If you've considered online dating, but haven't started it yet, there may
be something that is keeping you from joining up. In most of these cases,
if you are interested, but haven't yet joined, it simply means that you really
aren't yet prepared for online dating. If this is you, stop and think things
over for a few minutes, and really think about how you feel about the entire
online dating concept.
Dating really isn't that easy - unless you are a teenager - and even then,
it can still be hard. For many adult people, getting into the dating game,
whether it is for first time dating or not, can be difficult - especially
if you've been in a relationship, and out of the dating game for a while.
It is also a problem for those that have had bad relationship experiences,
and those who are filled with self-doubt or have confidence issues.
Have you thought about what you hope to get out of online dating? Many don't
join because they have been in a relationship, and while they would like
to casually date, they simply are not ready to get back into another
relationship. They may have decided that they never want to have another
serious relationship. So, if you haven't determined and defined exactly what
you hope to gain with online dating, you need to take some time to think
about that, before joining.
Are you scared of online dating? Many people are. They worry about it because
they aren't clear on how it all works. They worry about becoming interested
in someone, only to find out that the person did not accurately describe
themselves or their interests. They worry about the danger in meeting someone
online, and then taking the relationship offline. Being scared is natural
- and even good in this situation - because it will help you to take the
time to really get to know someone better online before moving the relationship
If you know what you want out of online dating, and you know what level of
caution you will use in online dating, you should go ahead and join up. Just
joining and talking to people online doesn't hurt anything - or anyone -
as long as you aren't giving out personally indentifiable information, and
you are portraying yourself as you really are, and you are honest about what
you want to accomplish with online dating - with yourself and others.
If you don't want or aren't ready for a serious relationship, that isn't
a problem in the online dating world. Many people feel the same way that
you do, and you will meet them. You can have relationships with no strings
attaced. Make new friends. Find people who share your interests to hang out
with - online and offline. Just be clearn and honest about what you want,
from the very start, and then find out what the person in question hopes
for or expects from you as well, to avoid entanglements that you don't
Know, in advance, about the type of person or people that you are looking
for. What qualities should your dates, friends, or companions have? This,
of course, goes beyond looks. What interests should they have? What should
they be looking for? What type of personality should they have? Do you want
to meet someone who has never been married, someone who is divorced, or someone
who is widowed? What age group should they be in? Really think about all
of this before you dive into the world of online dating.
Think again about what you want out of online dating. Do you want casual
dates? Do you want long term relationships? Do you want marriage? Friendship?
Sexual encounters? What about distance? Does it matter to you whether the
person or people that you seek live in your town, state, or country?
Sometimes, you simply don't have all of the answers, but it is a good idea
to think about all of it. What is not acceptable today, such as a long distance
relationship, may not matter at all if you meet someone who makes your heart
throb. But again, you need to prepare yourself for online dating, if you
are to be successful at it.
