“Should I try online dating?” It’s a valid question. We turn to our smart phones and tablets for almost every decision in life, so why wouldn’t we turn to our screens to find romance? Plus, finding a potential date online is more prevalent than ever – about 36% of adult Americans are actively seeking love online.
1. You’re taking control.
By creating an online dating profile, you’re no longer leaving it up to chance to create your romantic future. “Online dating is the best way to be proactive about your dating life,” says Davis. “After all, meeting someone meaningful takes action — and in a digital world, that means joining a dating site in addition to meeting people offline too.”
2. You’ll date more efficiently.
One of the perks of online dating is your ability to stipulate height, education, location and basically anything else you require in a partner. “You can be specific about who you want to meet, making sure you have common interests, values, etc.,” says Davis. “This is what separates online dating from meeting someone at a bar – you lead with this information and so do others.”
3. You’ll be active by taking it slow.
If you’ve been out of the dating game for a while – or you’re just plain excited to be trying something new — you might want to go buck wild by signing up for every dating site out there and going on as many dates as you can. Davis says, slow it down. “It’s best to begin online dating by joining one site. I’ve had a few clients who started with too many accounts on different platforms and it quickly became overwhelming!”
4. You can take your time.
Though a lot of singles have compared online dating to a second job, Davis says searching for love online shouldn’t be exhausting. In fact, the more stressed you are about finding a match, the less likely you’ll find a suitable one. She refers to psychological studies on the time spent online dating that showed the longer you spend scrolling through matches, the more judgmental you become.
