The number of people who meet on the internet is growing at an unprecedented rate. In fact, the net has become the mode of choice among hundreds of thousands of computer users. The idea that these people are all nerds is ludicrous. They are just a step ahead of people who don’t have net access or aren’t familiar with it.
Reality Check: The Internet is getting more people to meet than through any other technological advance in the history of mankind. Since it is far easier for women to meet men both in daily life and online, this article focuses on advice for men who want to meet women.
The Advantages of Internet Dating
What are the advantages of the net? First, When you meet someone online such as in a chat room or through personals ads, women don’t feel pressured into finding reasons not to talk to you. Moreover, they aren’t intimidated by your looks, not to mention ‘stranger anxiety’ – that awkward feeling of talking to a stranger and not trusting them.
Some women who chat online may be overly paranoid. For example, they will refuse to even get a picture scanned for fear of “all those whackos out there”. To this I have several responses. First, the girl is so heinous that she is afraid to let people know they are chatting with a dog. Next, they have such a large ego that they think that of the 250 million people with net access around the world, the tiny insignificant handful of people that she sends her picture to are going to do something so terrible that will ruin her reputation. The reality is, people really don’t care about the chick’s one little picture. Finally, don’t waste your time with these morons.
The Web Makes it Easy
When you meet people online, if you don’t like them you can simply ignore them and you rapidly forget about them and move on. Of course, this works the other way around as well. The net makes it easy to get to know people on a superficial level over periods of days to months before even exchanging phone numbers or meeting in person. You can also scrutinize what they look like by seeing their picture before you meet them. It’s easier to decide of they’re your type physically-speaking.
The reality is that telephone dating services are suffering. The only ones that are going to survive are those that are online as well. This benefits you so take advantage of it! With internet personals, you usually don’t have to pay to search or browse through the ads. Compare this with expensive telephone dating. Telephone dating means people have to speak over the phone as complete strangers and that can be intimidating for anyone.
As for blind dates…who knows what kind of person you are gonna meet!? While they can help, they are frequently a waste of time.
All this being said, find the right person for you! There are thousands of very attractive people (physically and intelligence-wise) online and chatting at any given moment. It’s up to you find them!
