Must-Read: Make Dating Sites Work For You
Dating is easier than ever these days! they say. As if they know. While you can certainly get a lot of dates easier these days because of the proliferation of the scene of Internet dating, it certainly doesn’t mean that it’s easier. In fact, the pathway to dating is simply more fraught with landmines that you need to avoid. The trick is knowing how to get through that minefield.
And so today we’re heading on over to AskMen.com where they have a list of ways that certain dating websites just aren’t working for you, and how to make them better. For example, among the pieces of information they have for us:
The Tinder Effect
You can think of Tinder and free dating technologies as the equivalent to throwing darts at a dartboard blindfolded, hopping to hit the perfect segment. Good luck. On the other hand, paid services like Match.com (which is now offering you 25% off a regular subscription) use smart dating technology that essentially removes the blindfolds, guides your wrist, and highlights the segments that will get you the most from each throw.
Tinder for dating? Eh, not your best bet. In 10 years, we’ll look back at Tinder as the phenomenon that eradicated the stigma against meeting people using such technology. Tinder users don’t consider themselves ‘online daters’; they consider themselves ‘players’ in a (faddish) online game. For some reason, removing the terms ‘online dating’ and ‘online dating website’ from the mix has made using technology to find sex, lust and love not only acceptable, but popular and the so-called thing to do.
Head on over to the link above to check out the rest of the story they have about how to actually use these dating sites properly. And then get on out there and begin dating like crazy.
