Advantages and benefits of online dating
“Highlighting your interests and values gives you the chance to sit down and evaluate what’s really important.” Amen to that.
Not to mention, I think a lot of people have short attention spans.
If you've been single within the last couple of years, I’m sure you’ve used a dating app or two (or ten), as well as online dating sites via your computer.
Hands down or fingers down, I should say — there are more benefits to using dating apps versus sites, I think.
Due to the nature of apps, on our phones versus computers, the interfaces are easy-to-use and the profiles are short-and-sweet.
“Dating apps have the portability factor, so you can use them while you’re on the bus or waiting for an appointment,” New York–based relationship expert and author April Masini tells Bustle.
But, whether you’re taking a chance and trying an online dating site, or sticking to the old-fashioned dating game and looking for love in the real world, we’ve put together a list of some of the pros and cons to online dating to help you decide which way might help you find “the one.” If you’re afraid you’ll be made fun of for trying online dating, keep in mind that 40% of Americans have tried it too.
While this like isn’t much of a surprise, unfortunately, many users do lie on their online dating profiles.
Aside from being more efficient, I think their interfaces tend to be more appealing and easy to use, too.
Plus, there seem to be apps catered to everyone, from the ever-popular standards, like Tinder, to ones for beard-lovers, like Bristlr.
With about 40 million Americans using dating sites and apps, it’s becoming more and more common for people to meet and date online.
Not to mention the fact that we spend most of our time connecting through our phones on social apps like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and Snapchat anyway.
