We know the feeling when you had a disappointing date. You get angry and frustrated, throw your heels across the room, jump on your bed, and scream that what a waste of time and effort the whole thing was about. Well, it’s very common to meet people you met online, and when you meet him or her, you get disappointed as your expectations were high. You started to think the online dating isn’t working for you anymore, and won’t use it again. Well, isn’t of painting everything with the same brush, there are reasons your need to be thankful for online dating. Here are four reasons why:
1. Online dating helps you to become a better conversationalist
It’s true first date conversations aren’t something you need to write home about, but you get better at them over time. When you meet someone new, try to kick start small talk about anything you like a funny story about your dog, a useful travel tip or recommend an interesting book you read the other day. You can approach your date, positively or negatively. You can assume that “this person isn’t my match” or, “though he or she isn’t my true match, I think I can connect to then, even at the smallest level.” Regardless, your date works out or not; dating hones your social skills that can come handy with friends, colleagues, or even strangers.
2. Online dating helps you to make friends
The last thing you wanted to listen after having a bad date is that your failed date wants to be friends with you. We totally understand it’s difficult being friends with someone whom you passed from being your partner. But, what’s wrong with being friends with people you don’t want to kiss? Invite them to your dinner parties, birthdays, and introduce them to friends you think they’d like. Maybe they will, in turn, will invite you over to their social events, where you can meet someone you like and who knows, date them as well.
3. Online dating expands your views about the world
Dating gives you’re a chance to visit new places, try new things and experience cultures and foods, which you wouldn’t have otherwise. Who knew there was a great Korean barbecue restaurant on your block? You now know the proper to eat hot Buffalo wings or eat sushi with chopsticks. None of which as possible if you didn’t go on dates.
4. Online dating makes you confident
Being in love is an enigmatic process. We have little control with whom we fall in love. But we can control on how much effort we can give to find love. Update your profile, post new and attractive photos, respond to emails, maintain a positive attitude, schedule dates, go on dates and don’t stop meeting new people. We will be amazed what you can accomplish by yourself if you out from your comfort zone.
