Facts About Online Dating
In a recent study, it was found that 2 out of every 5 single people between the ages of 24 and 50 use, or have used, Online Dating services.
Imagine That !
Think about walking into a room where there are 100 strangers and finding out that 20 of them use the same mechanic as you do. The odds are mind boggling. They would easily confess to using the same mechanic but they won't confess to using an Online Dating service.
Why? There still seems to be some stigma attached to Online Dating no matter how effective and rewarding it has become. Yet, it thrives and it would be a pretty safe bet that if all 100 strangers are single and between the ages of 24 and 50 that 20 of them do use, or have used, Online Dating services.
Another fact is that only about 5% of people who use Online Dating services actually establish a relationship with someone they first make contact with. OK, think about another room full of 100 strangers only this time they all are of the opposite sex and eligible. If you walked into that room in the real world, how many would you be attracted to? Maybe 10 if you are really lucky, right? Internet Dating is no different so don't expect miracles.
Only 10% of people who join Online Dating sites actually get any replies and that is a truly sad fact. The reason is that 90% don't bother to write an interesting profile or upload pictures of themselves. That's a lot like fishing without baiting the hook. I wonder what they expected. The 10% who do get noticed have posted upbeat profiles and pictures.
Last but not least is that paid sites are better than free sites. The reason is that they work. Users need to go through some screening before their membership are accepted into the site. Remember, people who pay for that service are most of the time serious to find or meet someone online.
No one would want to pay for a site if their intention is to stalk or harass others on the net. That's the main reason why you should avoid a free site at all cost since many frauds frequent the free sites.
Want a Free Dating Site ?
Plenty Of Fish is one of my recommended free dating website you should join. It got a simple interface and the website is fast loading. So far, from all the feedback I gathered, the quality quite good.
On free sites there is absolutely NO screening process at all! The fee for joining a paid site is small as compared to going out for dinner or buying movie tickets and you meet a lot more people in a lot less time if you work at it.
