It may be that you have never dated before or have recovered from a break-up. The time is now, by all means go for it. Your friends have tried but they’ve always gotten it terribly wrong or you may have had some unpleasant surprises. Everybody loves a good date but the horror of an online date gone wrong might give you the creeps. Nobody wants the same experience twice, especially if it was a bad one. Being scared on the other hand will just make it harder for you to get into the dating scene. Give yourself another chance only this time a more informed one. Chances are the one you are looking for is right at the tap of your smart phone.
Online dating despite its many challenges continue to be popular. Match.com, Tinder, eHarmony and Christian mingle have proved it can be done. You don’t have to take it at face value not with the three point four million Match.com subscribers available. Just go the old sites namely DateinAsia, PlentyOfFish and OkCupid to confirm that there are indeed plenty of fish to catch. It appears you’re not the only victim of love’s nature of scarcity. This time however you watch out for the sharks. As good as free mobile apps are they can’t match the kind of features you get from paid apps. Wait, are they really free? The answer is no, not really. Joining may be free but to get the advanced features you have to pay. Your phone bill is your witness to the atrocities committed to you by supposedly free dating apps.
You are not trying to get crazy people access to your life, you remember that and you are good to go. We are not just talking sexual harassment; it is your credit card information and your account as well. It is a sea with all sorts of creatures in it each with their own agenda. Having majored in the complete works of perversion, bullying and assuming other people’s identity they couldn’t be any more dangerous. Sounds creepy ? It is and unfortunately it is there to stay. However, you it doesn’t mean you have to be their next project. If you find an app that is categorical on your phone number verification, only signs you up after a verified member has spoken for you, asks for your photo ID requirements and links your facebook and instagram accounts then you’ve found your answer. This is a sure to keep stalkers out and keep all the good people coming in.
Go for what you want whether it may be people from the LGBTQ community, or someone you share a hobby with or casual dating. This way you’ll be pointed in the right direction and save on your money and time. Always go for dating apps that are more specific especially where location is concerned. This will narrow the circle to those who really matter and give you an opportunity to meet different people. Its ability to function even at the confines of your phone should get the app your thumbs up. Always confirm that an apps’ operations on a desktop are the same even in phone. If they are offering gift deals that involve you and a loved one getting a vacation or coupons then go for it. After all, dear dater, the world is yours take it all in .
