One frequently asked question about finding a mate online is, what the best dating site? There various ways of zeroing in on the best dating site for you. Notice the words “for you”. What’s good for someone else, even your closest friend or twin sibling may not necessarily be good for you.
Begin by making a list of the features you expect from a dating site. Think of the ease of navigation, security and privacy factors, ability to post or view a person’s picture and the detail of the personality profile. As you go through the different dating websites, see if they meet or exceed the expectations on your list.
Free public sites are full of a bunch of junk. Many of the profiles are computer generated or automated and they try to take you away from the dating site to another site which is trying to get some money from you.
Within the day of submission, I received an email from a certain Jake who had a matching profile. His profile was interesting to read and he likes watching musicals just like me! I had wanted to watch the current show and there was nobody available to be my date. Well, I can now watch the musical and get to know this chap. Talk about hitting two birds with one stone! This online single internation dating site sound very promising.
Even though you’re looking for love, some people are not, and they may take advantage of you in the form of money. Always be careful to whom you give your contact information to. When meeting someone online, it’s best to communicate by email first for the first couple of weeks and then give out your phone number. You don’t want to rush things with someone that you just met online as this is the wrong way to start off a relationship.
But, it is always preferable that you go for an online dating site that is offering a free service. Free service is always better when using a new website, which you have not decided upon yet. Also, and unfortunately, some of these new dating sites popping up are frauds. They can take your money for membership and then just disappear. You are not left with any alternative at that point of time because you do not even know to whom the site belongs to or where to go for your money.
Few people know your site exists. Those who stumble onto your site will be deterred by the realisation that there are very few or no members to interact with. Unless you have plenty of money to throw to promote the site, it may be that the site will languish until you are able to make your site widely known or searchable.
Ignore the safety rules – Never, and I mean, never put your life on a tray for anybody. Don’t give your address or phone number in the beginning and meet in public places for the first times.
