So you want to jump back into the dating pool, and meet some new people. Why not give online dating a shot?
Here are the top 3 reasons to give it a go:
Increasing Your Odds
There are plenty of fish in the online sea. Like it or not, online dating has become a huge phenomenon. 1 in 5 single Americans have dated someone they met online (Chadwick Martin Bailey, 2010). With 20% of Americans getting dates online, it seems that almost everyone is doing it and you should too. If you want to increase your chances of meeting that special someone, online dating seems like the best way to put yourself in touch with tons of new potential dates.
You do Everything Else Online
You use the internet to keep in touch with friends, to read the news, to pay your bills, and even to shop. We are doing everything else online these days, so why not meet new people online as well?
A survey of recently married Americans discovered that online dating is the third most common way for new couples to meet, behind meeting through friends/family, and through work/school (Chadwick Martin Bailey, 2010). If it works well enough to make marriages, clearly it works well enough to at least get you out there dating again!
