We are way past the time when we could say, "now that we have entered the 21st century". We are way past that and we know it. What was new and refreshing in now that we have entered the 21st century has slowly become mainstream. Platforms like Tinder and eHarmony are casually discussed, and it is rare to find anyone who has never tried dating online. And why do you think it works for them? Read on for the answers.
Forces You Out Of Your Comfort Zone… In a Good Way
The whole ordeal of creating a profile that screams all good things about you is nerve-wracking for many. Add to that the fact that while you are making it, you know that some stranger who could be a match, or a total creep would be reading it. However, one great lesson about the world that I learned from online dating of all places is that everyone out there is just as vulnerable as you are.
You Get To Meet Interesting People
This is true for most people who have a desk job, or work in an industry where they put in maximum hours and hardly ever get to meet new faces. Online dating has proven to be a great platform to meet interesting and like-minded people.
Helps You Get Back In the Game
… especially if you have been out of it for quite some time. Before, you put yourself through picking up someone new with sweaty palms and no idea how it’s done (come on, its not easy and we need to be kind to ourselves rather than have our wingman talk us down). Just be yourself and find someone online.
It Boosts Your Confidence
You have no idea what finding a match, and having people compliment you or tell you that they would like to take you out sometime, can do for your self esteem. Goodbye Friday nights hoping to be bought a drink by the most handsome man in the house; you have someone who is interested in you by the things you listed about yourself.
Good Things Don’t Come to Those Who Wait
When you want something, you go and get it. The same thing goes for dating. If you are tied up, have a tight schedule, don’t know anyone you could date, then this is the way you too can have an equal chance of winning in life as far as the relationship part is concerned.
