So here we are in the 21st century. So many changes that have taken place during the turn of the old century and the start of the new, but none so exiting as the way we now relate to each other when it comes to finding the right partner. Let’s look at the ways of doing this. For some of us we meet our partner in that chance meeting or build up a relationship gradually in a work environment. But for the rest of us we can either use the conventional way of searching for a date, or the new and most innovative which is online matchmaking. Let’s be very clear about this, I am not talking one night stands here; if you want this type of adventure then go to an Adult contact site, or sleazy night club. What I am looking at is the way to locate your future wife or husband.
Conventionally we go out, find a place like a club or pub, and start mixing. Sounds easy? Well for the majority of us especially older people who may be divorced or separated it is an extremely big step to get back out there on the streets and start to play the dating game: but there is thank goodness a new way of doing this which is now snowballing on the internet, and this is the online dating agency.
So how does it work? It’s straightforward ; you find a good agency (there a very few bad ones out there) join as an initial member. Check out the facilities on offer such as chat, emailing, pictures, videos etc, then if you like what you see, commit to full membership by paying a small fee. As a full member you then get the opportunity to try or rediscover you chat up skills, and you can do this as many times as you like until you get a the right feedback and decide to move it to another level; you go out and meet face to face; if it doesn’t work out don’t worry, there are plenty more fish playing the matchmaking game in hyperspace and meeting them is as easy as clicking your browser.
So there you have it, while the old convention ‘do you come here often’ still applies on Friday and Saturday nights up and down the country, the really smart players, the ones that mean business and are serious about finding Mr. or miss right, are sitting at home with a cool glass of wine playing the numbers game, because like anything else that you do, the more practice you have the better your skills become.
The difference between going out in the dangerous world and doing it for real, and cyber matchmaking, is probable the same as the old typewriter and you everyday laptop. No comparison I’m afraid; it’s quicker, easy to rub out your mistakes and a lot more fun.
