This is an important point because not everyone is looking for their future husband or wife on their doorstep.
Indeed not everyone is looking for a future husband or wife; the explosion in internet dating has made it easier than ever to find new friends and correspondents across the globe.
These two points mean that some of the bigger agency sites now have in excess of three million members, and literally thousands of new members joining every day.
With that many people, if you are serious about finding a partner, lover, or a friend, then the internet is simply too big a resource to ignore.
And ‘net dating is safe too; there is no need to exchange real names or even email addresses until you feel you know someone well enough.
All the services allow you to block unwanted communication and so there is no fear of being pestered. Used sensibly, internet dating can be safer than almost any other way of meeting people.
The internet has revolutionized the way we work, shop, conduct our financial affairs, and entertain ourselves. To use it as a medium for meeting new people is a logical step in our fast changing world.
After that chat six months ago, I convinced my friend to post a profile on a dating site, she didn’t even have to pay anything to do so unless she wanted to start sending messages to other members of the site.
Now I never see her because she is spending all of her time with her new man.
She didn’t find him in five minutes like some of the sales pitches would like you to believe, but then six months ago she didn’t expect to find him at all.
