Online dating has changed the face of courtship. With so many websites and apps available, it’s hard to know where to start.
One of the advantages is that you can pre-screen people before you meet them. You needn’t sidle up to the bar, fingers crossed that attractive person is available and looking to date. It’s easier to zero in on likely candidates for love.
Of course, the disadvantage is that body language and tone of voice don’t come across in a text chat.
Concerns about cat-fishing or disingenuous profiles are legitimate. Watch out for those who don’t talk about their future or have clear statements about themselves. Take the first step and be honest yourself.
You have to meet lots of people to find love. Online dating makes it easier to narrow the candidates. The yeses matter; forget about the rejections.
Mobile apps are best for a first screening and a first date. You can gain more information about a person and see more photos on a website.
