With our fast paced busy lives some of us are finding it extremely difficult to find love and settle down. In the 90s it was extremely difficult as we were too busy working and making money, with no time to go out and about to meet new people. Once you leave college and university it becomes extra difficult to find a date. Depending on what sector you work in there may not been a lot of people form the opposite sex.
So what do we do? We have found online dating, it is quick, convenient, and painless and in some cases free. According to recent statistics over 6 million UK people use online dating sites. I have many friends who have met their partners online and I am impressed by how they went about it. Not everyone gets lucky online (a bit like real life), but there are a few things you can do to improve your chances.
· Decide on what type of site suits you best, there are sites out there for single parents, divorcees, military people, policemen and of course bisexual and homosexual people. So pick the ones that suits you, there are loads of free ones out there but not all are good.
· Take adecent picture of yourself, a recent one is best. Try to be as honest as possible and don’t upload a picture from a few years ago.
· Create youronline profile; take some time to do this as it will be worth it in the long run. Describe yourself honestly and don’t over egg it. Do not over promise anything, and also try describing what you are looking for in a potential partner.
· Search on the site for people who match your criteria, contact them, exchange messages, talk on the phone and finally arrange to meet them.
