Choosing Between Online and Traditional Dating

Traditional Dating

If you’re tired of being single, you must first settle on what type of dating life you’d want to have before diving headfirst into the dating world. Now, you can choose between traditional dating and online dating.

Here are some things to ponder on that might help you decide between the two:

• If you are quite confident about your ability to get dates and make each one interesting, you might need the help that online dating can give you. But if you can barely find a potential date, then traditional dating may not be your scene.

• Time is gold and it truly is. If you’re quite busy with work or other things to the extent that you barely have time to go out and meet people, online dating can help. It saves you time, money and energy, too.

• Location is usually not a problem with traditional dating because you usually meet dates within the city as you attend local social events, parties, or other activities. But it might as well be the main hindrance towards building a relationship if your date is located on the other side of the world. This is when online dating should be improved and made efficient over time.

• If you’ve been burned several times by going to failed dates set up by friends, you might want to consider online dating this time. By reading and studying the profile of your potential dates, you will not waste time and meet only the people whom you like.

• Traditional dating usually starts with a face-to-face meet at a party, bar, or social event. You’ll see the other person and observe his or her behavior. But with online dating, you will not only see the photos. You will also learn about the person’s birth date, likes or dislikes, and various other personal details that you might not get straight from him or her if you met in person.

• Cost efficiency is one of the biggest reasons to try online dating. At least you don’t have to keep spending on coffee, tea, or other outing activities.…

Challenges in Dating

Challenges in dating

Opening up to someone is quite a hard thing to do, most especially when you got used to being single and to not worry about someone else’s welfare except your own. But then, when you are into the dating stage of your life that doesn’t necessarily means you are betting everything you have in the table, although indeed it’s true that you are betting a piece of you, yet that doesn’t mean you have to pour in everything. Dating is basically a way to get to know someone else, to make new friends, and create a new relationship or better yet getting to know some people better and deeper.

Though honestly speaking, dating an individual doesn’t come easy. This certain stage of your life has its many challenges as well and is considered to be one of the most crucial stages of all and every relationship of all couples, for on this stage you’ll never know if you’ll make it or break it. And the odd part is, though not odd at all, is that you won’t be able to know the result not unless you do it and tried. I know letting someone into your life is hard and most of you are afraid to try and fail, but then if you won’t do it and just stay within your comfort zone you can never be happy at all. You can never experience failure, devastation, depression, and pain. Those are a few of the experiences that almost every single individual have to undergo in their life so that they can remain strong, and be even stronger than they were before.

Not only does failure and depression are one of the challenges in dating, there are a lot, to be honest. And one of which is breaking and going out of your comfort zone and give some individual a piece of your life, an important aspect of your life. Though most of all as a single individual you got used to the routines and other activities you used to do alone, and you just enjoy the peace and sometimes you always ask yourself certain questions like “Will that person like what I like?” or “I hope the person I’ll date will enjoy what I enjoy”. That usually happens, and it happens to almost all couples who had successfully conquered that stage. Though if you’ll ask one of the couples you know the same question, you’ll sometimes get an answer that goes like “It was the worst! But then I get to know what he likes and tried it too and ended up doing a different thing together and was happy with those experimented activities that we ended up loving it”. Although there are some couples who like their lives the way it is that they don’t experiment much, afraid that they’ll never survive when they are outside their comfort zone. But what I can suggest is that as long as you love doing it, just do it together and when you’ve survived at least there’s something you’ll reminisce about what you did together.…
