As the world right now is in quite a bit of chaos, it’s only to be expected that we’re all craving some normalcy, why should we sacrifice our dating lives because we can no longer live the same way as we have been? This is where the online world is beneficial to all of us, because although we’re unable to go out, we can still have human contact, we’re able to connect with each other and still make new friends – we’re still able to get to know each other for the sake of falling in love.
I suppose that’s the beauty of living in the digital age, really. I’ve definitely benefited from the online world whether it’s been for work or friendships, and honestly I’ve dated online in the past and have had relationships which were the product of meeting people online; we’re all only human so it’s only normal that we seek out somebody to love or at least somebody to go out for a drink with.
As always I’m a big advocate for keeping your love life local; long distance is complicated and if we’re seeking romance then it’s for the obvious reason that we’re looking for affection, somebody to give it to and receive it from and even if that’s not what you’re seeking, if you’re somebody that wants to serial date, that’s fine too and you can still use online resources to do so. There’s so many dating sites and apps out there these days, you have the OG sites such as match.com and newer sites such as Love Fife Singles at your disposal now for you to use and make the most out of, you can seek your connections and maintain them with the click of a button.
I’ve had positive experiences with online dating and where I’ve not developed relationships or where they’ve ended, I’ve walked away with either a friend or a lesson learned, if I were to sign up to Fife dating I’d be looking for someone who can be my friend as well.
I’d also be searching for someone local, there’s loads of dating sites out there these days designed for finding somebody locally to you, long distance isn’t the ideal and normally those relationships aren’t sustainable in the long term, you could search for your local area in google, for example you could searhc for Suffolk dating site and you can guarantee that something would come up especially for that niche.
If you’re lucky enough and find something like Love Suffolk Singles but for your own area, then you should consider what it means to be on these websites, consider who you want to be connecting with and put your needs and desires first and foremost.
I’ve even taken a liking to hearing other peoples stories lately, I’ve spoken about all sorts of niche in the dating world in the past, but it’s fun to hear about how other people have met or what somebodies experience was, most dating sites and apps are free but nowadays you can even pay to upgrade your account and meet people in a more filtered way, this seems to be the future of dating apps especially, but if you’re seeking love online you should be able to filter down to your preference and meet somebody that you want to connect with, I feel like we’re also often too picky though, and apps like Tinder where you’re swiping based on your first impression are generally good at helping us decide whether we truly want to connect with someone or not, because if you swipe and don’t strike up a conversation, you’re just going to ignore their presence and it’s one less person to force a connection with.
Online dating is the future and I’ve been saying that for years, but we can only help ourselves speed up the process of finding love if we act in a realistic way. I think that it’s important to filter down our search to our local areas, find people near us and make an effort to connect if we’re taking the time to swipe or send them a message. These websites are staying around for the long term, and we can only learn from our experiences.
