The Many Advantages of Online Dating
For those who read my writing blog, you will know that I've been adventuring into the world of online dating for the past week or so.
Aside for the numerous encouraging comments of 'your gorgeous', 'your exquisit' and 'please shave my chest', I have discovered another advantage of internet dating which I wanted to share with all of you.
I have been on for just over a week, and I've already had one offer to take me surfing on the weekend, to play a game of pool and numerous discussions on trail jogging, mountain biking, and generally being active.
A lot of people are online to find someone to do things with. And a lot of them are more than happy to share their skills in specialised areas.
And it's free.
I'm using OkCupid, which allows you to do the entire process - signing up, messaging people, getting to know them - for nothing. They even have a category for 'I'm looking for an activities partner' (unless that has another meaning I'm not getting?).
So what have you got to lose?
If you want someone to exercise with, or try new experiences, jump on and be open. Say exactly what you are looking for and people will be more than happy to help.
I didn't actually go surfing this time as I had other things on, but tonight I'm meeting up to play a game of after work pool. Pretty exciting for a Tuesday night!
Let me know if you've had any other successes!
(Also, disclaimer, be sensible and careful. Don't agree to go bungy jumping with someone who sets up his own home amde ropes, etc.)
