We’ve timed the registration process for dating websites and then calculated the approximate time taken (on average of course) to meet somebody offline in the real world. Without going into detail (you really don’t want to see the detail) it takes about 15-30 minutes to meet somebody online and much much longer offline.
So they’re easy to join but how do you find them. Well there’s search engines or recommendations or you could even ask people you know. Surprisingly there’s more people than you think who’ve found love (or a partner) online. In America last year nearly 20% of marriages were for couple who found each other virtually online ( we don’t mean they found each other virtually we mean they discovered each other through the inter webby thing. We’re familiar with internet dating here at SA Online Dating and it never ceases to amaze us that just a few short months previously the two people who are now skipping happily to work with their matching latte’s didn’t actually know each other. In fact not only didn’t they know each other they didn’t even know the towns where the other one lived.
Dating sites have revolutionised how we meet each other and the great news is, they’re free. Yip, that’s it. Some technical boffins somewhere in darkened rooms have been stitching pixels together for your pleasure and delight. Of course to get the best out of free dating websites it’s best to part with a little cash and become a premium member. By doing so you’ll have the best seat in the house and able to chat and meet anybody you like. (Assuming of course they want to meet you). So don’t hang around. Dating websites are here to stay so come along and have some fun online. You never know how much fun you could have and who knows you could be the next success story waiting to happen. Good luck from all of us.
