Love Finder Dating And Singles

What's so hard about being single? You simply go out, meet the person of your dreams, and get married. Right? What can be so hard about that? Well, just ask someone who is single!

In this day and age it has become harder and harder to meet your special someone. People are so busy with their work life and other obligations that it makes it almost impossible to put you in the position to meet that special someone.

Well, join the 100 million other singles in the US that are in the same boat. Sure you can go out to bars and try to meet someone. That is very difficult and you have no idea who you are meeting. Are they really who they say they are? Are they really how old they say they are? Is their history and background what they say it is? Are they married? These are the questions that go through a lot of people's mind when they are meeting a new person. We all have heard of the horror stories that have come from bar dating.

So what is a person to do? Below is a list of ways to meet people in the new millennium.

At Work. The office can be a great place to meet people. You already have at least one thing in common with everybody there. Plus you know what they look like. You know something about them. And it's free. But there are problems. Because of today's heightened consciousness about political correctness and sexual harassment, asking someone you work with for a date is tricky, especially if one of you is the boss. And what if you get into a relationship and it doesn't work out? Unless one of you quits, you've got to face the person every day when you go to work.

Join a Group. For some people, a club, a religious group, a political campaign, an adult education course, or a health club can be an excellent way to meet somebody. If you are truly interested in and committed to the goals and activities of the group, go ahead and try it. Remember, though, that most of the people you find there will be there for the activities, not to meet somebody. Don't join a chorus unless you like to sing.

Friends and Family. Married people want their friends to get married. Families want to extend themselves by getting their family members married. So they introduce you to someone they know that would be "perfect" for you. It seldom works out. Why? Because they do the choosing, not you. And unfortunately, as time goes on, they run out of people to introduce you to.

Singles Bars. Bars are great for some people; for others they are unpleasant if not frightening. The people you meet there are mostly drinkers and smokers in their twenties and early thirties. If you're looking for someone who doesn't fit that description, you're probably out of luck.

Men often don't like bars because they have difficulty approaching and starting a conversation with a woman or asking her to dance. Sometimes their fear of rejection makes them awkward and self-conscious. Women often don't like bars because they don't like being hit on by awkward and self-conscious men. Bars are smoky, poorly lit, noisy, and expensive ($50 to $100 a visit, including parking, cover charge, appetizers, drinks, taxes, and tips), they also can be dangerous. Bars are open to anyone of legal drinking age; there is no screening process.

On-Line Chat Rooms. Online chat is great as long as it stays online. For many people who participate, a big part of the appeal of online chat is that you can be whoever you want to be. So chatters routinely misrepresent their age, marital status, and history and even their gender. Don't ever give your real name, phone number, or e-mail address to anyone in a chat room.

Personal Ads. If you meet someone in a bar you at least get a look at him or her. When you read a personal ad you have no way of knowing if anything in it is true. People who run personals or answer them can and do lie about their looks, their age, their marital status, and everything else. To run a personal ad of your own regularly can cost $300 to $1,000 a year.

1 (900) Date Lines. To register with a 1 (900) line dating service, you enter your profile by answering prerecorded questions using the telephone keypad and then recording a message for others to listen to. In other words, you run a personal ad (with all the disadvantages of a personal ad) that gets delivered over the telephone. Only these personal ads are much more expensive to read than the printed kind. A typical profile runs about two to three minutes. At $2.49 per minute, which are what 1 (900) lines charge on the average, to listen to one profile cost about $5.00. To listen to five costs $20.00 or more.

On-Line Dating Services. Online dating services put your personal ad on the World Wide Web. Some include pictures; some don't. Many services let you enter your profile for free but, like 1 (900) lines, charge you to look at other people's profiles or select and respond to other members. Again, people are open to lying about themselves. There are people who lie about their age, marital status, occupation and intentions.

Video Dating Services. When you register with a video dating service, they put you in front of a video camera and interview you. Then other people watch your video and decide whether they want to meet you or not. It's great if you look good on TV. Most people don't. The process is time-consuming and inconvenient. You have to go to the service's location during the hours when they're open and look through a lot of videos before you find someone you want to meet. It's expensive, too: $1,500 to $2,500 is typical for a year's subscription.

Matchmaking Services. Now we're talking serious money. You go to their office. They interview you, making a big show of asking detailed questions about who you are and what you're looking for. Because the price is high--$1,500 for six dates is typical--they only have a limited number of people in their files at any one time. So they match you up with whomever they've got that's close to you in age, send you off on some blind dates, and hope for the best.

Our secure, safe, on-line service is the system that uses computer and internet technology to succeed where other systems have failed. It's the convenient, safe way for compatible singles to meet at an affordable price.

Convenient. Our website is open 24 hours a day, seven days a week. Sign on anytime from home, work, or any where you have access to an internet connected PC.

Safe. Take advantage of our background check. We realize the importance of letting new applicants know that our members have been checked out. When you select someone, and they reply "Yes", we provide you with each other's e-mail addresses. You use e-mail to get to know each other. We never give anyone your full name, postal address, or telephone number. Only you do that, and only when you're ready to do so.

Compatible. Only you know whom you would like to date. Our powerful matching software searches our database and finds profiles of members that meet the criteria you enter (age, geographic area, religion, children, etc.).

As you can see, there are many ways for singles to meet for fantastic dates (or just a perfect mate).

We have worked diligently to develop the on-line system and service that can change people's lives. Our desire to help people is second to none. We care and it shows in our work and customer service.
