Online cyber dating
There once was a time where pet owners could sign up for an online dating site called Date My Pet to express their love for their pets.
According to Today Show.com, new sites such as Match for your dogs to meet other canine friends and Spot Wag, a support service to help you find the best doggy hotel or sitter for when you travel can help man's best friend find love and happiness on the Internet.
Some were intent on finding another lifemate in short order, while others seemed more interested in sampling different personalities and lifestyles.
A gripe shared by many women I met concerned the fellow who arrived at the meetup bearing little resemblance to the guy in the profile.
Here’s what I learned: If you’re looking for someone of similar interests and lifestyle, the more specific you can be upfront, the better. What was the last good book your read, or film you saw?
For instance, does “loves sports” mean you’re up for cross-country skiing and white-water rafting, or is it a declaration that every weekend is devoted to channel-surfing the pro and college games? Potential dates skimming your profile are more likely to respond to specifics.
"I didn't know how I was going to meet someone, especially when with what little free time I had I wanted to spend it with my friends." Heeding advice from friends living in New York City, Allison turned to the Internet.
But I wasn’t the same single guy I was the last time I lived here. And I wanted to meet people, so I turned to Internet dating as a way to meet eligible women.
Over the course of several months of online dating, I discovered that the pool of available older women is vast and diverse (as is true of men, although perhaps to a lesser extent) and that with a little effort, a reasonably intelligent, halfway-presentable person can usually generate some interest on dating websites. We’ve survived death and divorce, raised families, managed careers and built support networks of family and friends.
Internet dating puts all options on the table, and a growing number of sites cater to the more mature singles crowd.
My own encounters revolved around OK Cupid and Plenty of Fish, both of which are free dating sites.
