Have you noticed how it’s just not as easy to meet new people as it used to be? Even the socially confident, extrovert types are struggling; let’s not even get started with the shy souls, the workaholics, professionals, divorcees, single parents, the ‘unlucky’ in love, you name it – the dating game can be tough. Worse still is the uncertainty of it all, and the wasted time and energy when your set up or random social encounter just doesn’t pan out.
Thankfully, online dating provides a solution to many of those challenges. Not only does this process allow you to discretely screen all potential love interests (if something on their profile doesn’t match up with your ideals, no harm no foul) it allows you to do this from the comfort of your own home. Think of online dating as your very own internet cupid, your personal matchmaker who, unlike all those well-meaning matchmaker friends and relatives (everyone has that one aunt), actually knows your tastes and what you’re looking for in a partner. And the best part is you can do all this from the comfort of your own home, on your own schedule, only choosing to meet the individual in person for a date once you’re ready; say goodbye to awkward blind dates forever.
