Online dating is currently the easiest and the most powerful means to search and find your true match. Dating has never been so simplified and safe before. But even though the online platform for dating is gaining so much popularity, there are still some online dating myths surrounding a section of people that have got them arrested for their delusional ideas and hindering their chance to find love.
Given below are some of such online dating myths that might ruin your chance to find true love.
#1 I don’t need help to find a match
Of course, you don’t. You must meet new and interesting singles every time you flip a coin, isn’t it? So, till you find time to bottle this art and make a fortune, online dating sites are providing the solution to find the perfect match for all the guys and girls who are actually serious about finding a date. Besides, if you do want to find a date, you don’t have to stop looking elsewhere, but just open up all possibilities to find love. After all, you can miss your match by a couple of minutes in a café, but on a dating site, he/she will always be just an email or a text away.
#2 Internet isn’t a safe option
It’s not a safe option to date someone online is one of the common online dating myths because it is filled with dishonest people. Seriously? When you can chat, email, view someone’s verified profile, learn their attitude, profession and personality and look at their photos, social accounts, etc., all while keeping your own identity and personal details safe till you decide you have found the right match; it is but foolish to suggest online dating to be unsafe. Can you imagine such safety and privileges while meeting someone in a bookstore or a pub? Well, good luck trying that.
#3 Losers resort to online dating
If by losers you mean the huge, diverse, global community of quality, well educated, decent, and smart individuals that join the gigantic platform of like-minded individuals with similar goals to get a date, form romantic relationships, or even find their life partners, then yes, losers are those who resort to online dating. Because winners are those, who like and comment on friends’ relationship statuses and sip coke alone in the food court in hopes to spot someone single.
#4 I am not desperate to find a date
This is, surprisingly, another online dating myth where people are tagged as desperate singles. These are normal people who have their own lives just like you do, work, have their passions, and are only using a powerful dating tool to find themselves a date.
#5 The online dating site is where you meet liars
Sure. Like dating sites have a special clearance requirement for all to only speak lies or speak nothing. Meeting liars is not specific to dating sites alone. You can meet them anywhere. To be truthful, you can never be sure of the guy you met at the mart that he’s a high profile lawyer as he claimed to be or the girl you met at the theatre who told you she’s a model. On the contrary, the profiles of all the individuals are fully verified to rule out such possibilities of duping. But anyway, be it online or otherwise, it is always a good point to stay alert and if things seem out of place, avoid the person altogether.
#6 I won’t find someone online who shares my interest
Don’t give up before you even try it. The very beauty of online dating is that you can filter and find yourself a date that has similar interests to yours. In fact, you can even define your dream date by specifically mentioning the attributes you are looking for in them, like a particular location, values, personality traits, physical appearance, etc.
#7 I am too old for online dating
Another online dating myth is when people consider themselves too old for online dating. Especially those who think your age may have already found their partners and by so decreasing the probability for you to find someone by conventional methods. Not to mention trolling single hubs may seem embarrassing and tiring too. So, online dating is your best bet where you can anonymously search from among the many singles like yourself and at your own pace. Besides, the chatting and email conversations are easier to get you into flirting and dating mode again.
#8 I’m not ready for a serious relationship
Good news! Neither are all others that are online. Some people may actually be looking for a serious or long-term relationship, but luckily for you, not all are on the quest to find their soul mates. Some individuals are looking for meeting interesting people online to make good social relations before jumping headfirst into a serious relationship. Searching online will easily make it clear to you.
Online dating gives you a chance to meet new people with the same mentality and can be a successful means to meet your life partner.
