A lot of people like to say that they don't use online dating because they have no trouble getting dates.
But they don't seem to think about the annoyances online dating can eliminate.
When you meet face to face, you have no idea what that person is like, what they're into, what religion they follow and so forth. All you have to go by are their physical attributes and spend many dates trying to figure out if you two are compatible. Then they get serious, date for years and certain aspects start oozing out that you weren't aware of before, but didn't discuss because it was "too soon". Deal breaker things such as morality, marriage, religion, reproduction, politics and so forth.
You can end up dating someone for years only to later find out they can't fulfill your expectations in one way or another and then we get the break ups and sobbing and dumbass songs to follow.
With online dating all the important traits can be compiled on your profile, so you instantly know whether you'd want to be with this person, provided you get that spark on your face to face dates.
I don't want kids and he does? No go.
I'm atheist and he's religious? Nope.
I'm into staying in playing video games and he'd rather go out and get wasted in bars every weekend? Bye!
Online dating helps filter through unwanted people a lot quicker. No unpleasant surprises months or years down the line.
Okcupid makes you answer a whole lot of questions that cover a variety of subjects. I don't understand how people can say online matchmaking is bullshit, when it literally couples you with people who share your likes, beliefs and outlook on life. And if you don't want to have things in common, go message the person with the lowest % of common interests instead.
My boyfriend and I have met on Okcupid. Our profiles matched up percentage wise and he messaged me. I saw that we had many things in common, so I gave it a shot. We met up after a week of texting and have been together ever since. +3 years down the line and it's been bloody fantastic.0
