Is Online Dating Actually a Good Thing?

Online dating has become a huge business. In fact, it is estimated that 70% of single people in the United States have tried online dating. If you’re not using online dating, it is likely you have a friend who is. Online dating is quickly becoming the most common way that couples meet. Over a third of all marriages in the United States last year began through online dating and that figure is expected to grow. It is little wonder that online dating has become so popular with the ability to search through the profiles of thousands of other single people who you otherwise would never meet. However, is online dating actually a good thing?

The statistics would suggest that it is, with major online dating sites proudly displaying the thousands of couple who have found love on their home page. Ask someone who has found love using online dating and they’ll tell you how great it is to be able to browse someone’s profile before chatting to them and then being able to get to know them online before arranging to meet. They might tell you how they were matched with a partner using a complicated algorithm provided by the website. They’ll cheer about the ability to sort people by location, interests, height, weight, hair color, beliefs, and countless other filters.

However, this world of online dating has taken away something which is essential at the beginning of any relationship. It is a connection which can’t be felt through a profile picture taken at a complimentary angle or a funny tag line under a username. The connection is something which doesn’t transfer through a computer screen during online chat. It isn’t recognizable when browsing through uploaded pictures. The connection is felt when spending physical time with a person.

This connection is about subtle clues in a person’s body language. The way they look at you or smile or gently touch your arm when you say something funny. These physical actions are ones which have been used by mankind for hundreds and thousands of years. They are instinctual ways to display affection towards someone in a publically subtle, yet privately obvious manner.

Trying to find love online eliminates any form of physical human interaction. It takes away those subtle clues which can get your heart racing. Perhaps it reflects how we are becoming as a society. It seems the days of going around to your friend’s house for a chat are behind us. These days everyone communicates through text messages or online chat. The same has become applicable for dating, with human interaction taking a back seat to convenience and chatting through a computer screen.

Trying to find love is something which is natural to us all. Everyone wants to love and be loved by somebody special. However, with online dating it has almost become a case of ‘go online and find it’, instead of letting the process happen naturally through a physical connection. This isn’t to say there is no possibility of finding love through online dating, the statistics above show it is very possible. However, online dating shouldn’t take the place of real social interaction with potential partners.

Score: 7/10

The electric guitar can be a hugely impressive instrument to play if you have friends with you who are playing other instruments. However, if you are playing it alone then it may not have the same effect as the acoustic guitar. Girls are generally impressed by a guitar no matter what type it is, but, an electric guitar may be a tiny bit too noisy in comparison to an acoustic guitar. If you play your electric guitar online, be sure to adjust the volume appropriately so there isn’t lots of static and the noise levels are bearable.

Grand Piano

Any girl who shows interest in a piano is bound to be one who has the capability of holding an intellectual conversation as opposed to a girl who is easily impressed by anything they see. This makes the grand piano perfect for impressing girls when you are seeking a relationship.

Harmonica

8 Ways to Chat With Girls Online

The internet is a hugely social arena with many ways to meet new people. Platforms such as chat sites, social media, and webcam chat sites provide the perfect place to chat with girls. However, there is stiff competition on these sites and knowing how to keep a girl interested is essential. If you are boring or full of cheesy chat-up lines, you might find the girls going to chat with someone else. So, to help, here are 8 ways to chat with girls online:

Have A Unique Introduction

Most girls, especially the pretty ones, would have heard every chat-up line under the sun already. There’s no point using a one-liner that everyone knows as it will turn her off immediately. At the same time a simple ‘hi’ might be a bit boring. The best thing to do is try and come up with a unique opening line to capture the girls’ interest.

Find Out Her Interests First

Before you start talking about things you’re interested in, find out what she likes first and use a common topic for conversation. There’s no point in you droning on about the game last night when she has no interest in it whatsoever. Ask her a couple of questions to gauge what she likes and move the conversation in that direction.

Get Her To Do The Majority Of The Talking

If you get a girl to do most of the talking, she’ll end up talking about what she’s interested in. If you are actively listening while she’s talking, she will feel the conversation is going really well and is much more likely to continue conversing with you. Make sure you’re asking the right questions and encouraging her to talk.

Ask Interesting Questions

This is an important step in getting the girl you’re chatting with to open up a little and talk away. Make your questions interesting by focusing them on her. For example, you could ask her how she got in to her line of work or why she enjoys her hobby so much. This kind of question will give her a chance to tell you a story and get her talking. It will also make her feel more emotionally connected to you as you’re taking an interest in her life.

Act Nonchalant

This is a hard one to do as you don’t want to come across as being bored. However, if you act a little bored and a little amused it will make a girl want to open up more. It is tough to get the combination exactly correct, but, with a little practice you can have girls dying to spill their guts to you,

Show You’re Paying Attention

While the conversation is flowing and she’s chatting away, be sure to show her you’re listening by providing feedback. Little remarks such as ‘hmmmm’, ‘Really?’, or ‘That’s crazy!’ can show her you’re interested in what she has to say. It will also encourage her to keep talking.

Don’t Show Off

A big mistake many guys make when talking to girls is they think exaggerating their achievements will impress them. However, being humble in yourself can actually intrigue girls and make them want to talk with you even more. Add a little mystery when answering questions about yourself and she is guaranteed to stay chatting with you.

Be Calm/Confident/In Control

Finally, it’s important to always remain calm, confident, and in control. Think before you speak and remain articulate and interesting. There’s nothing girls find more attractive than a guy who emanates confidence.

 

2 Video Chat Sites That You Should Know About

Video chat sites have taken off in a serious way. Nowadays, the first site many people visit when going online isn’t their social media account, but their favorite video chat site. The unique opportunity to use your webcam to connect with thousands of people from all over the world is extremely appealing and it is understandable that video chat sites are rocketing towards the top of the Alexa rankings. There are hundreds of video chat sites popping up all over the place with many of them vacant and boring. However, there are 2 video chat sites which have led the way for this means of communication – Chatrandom and Omegle.

Chatrandom

Chatrandom is probably the best known video chat site around with over a quarter of a million users every day. People have flocked to this site due to its simplicity of use and vast features. The main feature on the site is the random cam feature which allows users to instantly connect with other users from around the world without any sign-up fee or registration required. The ability to instantly connect with strangers has been seen in other sites, but many have implemented tough regulations and taken away the freedom of the users. Chatrandom has kept its main feature free of restrictions and allows the users to interact in a way they see fit.

Beyond the random chat feature, you can also find a webcam chat room which operates like a more traditional chat room. Here you can choose the user you wish to chat with and view their webcam as you chat, as well as viewing many webcams simultaneously. Group chatting has become very popular and the webcam chat rooms are full of people having group conversations. Chatrandom is a pioneer of video chat which is evident from their current development of a mobile app. When this is released it will be the first of its kind, allowing users to chat randomly wherever they are.

Omegle

Omegle has been around for a long time and is among the most popular video chat websites. The site has evolved dramatically over the last few years with new features and moderators being the main talking points. The random cam section of Omegle was deemed ‘unsafe’ for its users, the majority of whom are young teenagers. This lead to strict moderation becoming implemented in the random cam section with nudity and offensive behavior leading to a ban from the site. They opened up a non-moderated random cam section, however, an inevitable drop in users occurred as people felt they were losing the freedom that made the random cam section so great.

On top of the changes to the random cam section, Omegle have recently implemented a college dorm chat facility, allowing users who possess a college email address to sign up and chat to other college users. Whether or not this will be a success is yet to be seen. Apart from its overhaul in the way the site operates, Omegle still remains popular with the younger generation and you will find lots of teens online. Adults, however, moved on to sites such as Chatrandom where there are no strict rules.
