Online or face-to-face dating?

Millions of people around the world are looking for love on the internet.

According to Online Dating Statistics & Facts – a website dedicated to analyzing the world of online dating – these types of apps have about 91 million users worldwide . However, many of them never get a date.

In the United Kingdom, a survey carried out by YouGov – a statistics and public opinion research company – suggests that although 10% of the country’s total population uses these online services, less than half of them had an appointment with someone he met through an app.

Although dating apps are a very common way to meet other people today, there are still many people who prefer traditional, more natural and romantic dating.

Because choosing one or the other option is a personal question and we could discuss the subject at length. Next, we will present the advantages of using an application or a website for your appointments as well as the points in favor of meeting someone outside the network.

Online dating

Online dating has been on the market since the 90’s and it gets better and better as the years go by. Singles have more and more options, dating websites are adding more impressive technology, and success rates are getting higher.

With almost 8,000 dating websites, there is a dating website for just about every person. And you can browse them from the comfort of your sofa. Also, almost all dating sites offer a free trial , so you won’t have to pay anything to try it out.

But, without a doubt, the biggest advantage is that there are millions of singles in one place.

When you are in a bar or a party, there are probably more than 50 people and you do not know who the single person is.

At last, online dating works. A study reveals that 1 in 5 relationships start online (20%) and almost the same number for couples who get married.

Traditional dating

Before online dating, the only way to meet someone was by going out, at parties, bars, activities, through mutual friends, etc. And it can still be done perfectly!

The great advantage of traditional dating is that you can directly determine if there is a chemical attraction with the person. With online dating you can only view photos and receive messages. Of course, the person may seem attractive and funny to you, but the chemistry could break down once you go on that first date. For whatever reason, sometimes the spark disappears in person. With face-to-face appointments you waste less time and you know directly if it is worth continuing to know the other person.

In addition, it is more difficult to lie to the face than behind the computer or mobile screen. It is for this very reason that you have to be careful. You should never give confidential information to someone online (even if you have been chatting for months). Try this and find more friends.

There is no better option than the other. You can try both types of dating and choose what makes you feel most comfortable.
