For some people loneliness is a very real occurrence, they spend a lot of time feeling unhappy and depressed about their inability to find someone to be with or to share their lives with. For these people who have this problem, online dating can be a godsend. They are able to find that special someone without the fear of being rejected and they can find someone who has a lot in common with them to share their feelings with. Single people who are lonely find that these online dating websites provide them a way to get to know a lot of people without going to bars and social events, as well as keeping them from allowing fear to take over and keep them from talking to new people.
Many people who are or who feel lonely can turn to the online dating sites because they can meet singles much more easily than they would at offline places. You learn about the person on a social and intimate level. You are able to check out the many profiles and if you find that the person is not a fit for you there is always another profile that you can choose from. You can connect with singles who have those types of personality you feel best with, and you learn not to be afraid of these people. You always have some match that is looking for exactly what you are looking for. This is the bauty of this dating system which is especially important for people who feel lonely. You can go at the pace you feel most comfortable with.
People who feel lonely can also meet other singles offline. However, for the average person, offline dating is more difficult than online dating and this is especially true for singles who feel lonely. The reason is clear. A person who feels lonely may often find it difficult to show his/her personality (true self) to the other person, especially because when one feels lonely, she/he feels pain. When one feels pain, it is difficult to transmit the best of you to someone you meet. People who feel lonely often end up transmitting this pain to the people who are around them and often are perceived as “desperate” by the other person, who runs away whenever he or she gets the chance. The end result is that offline dating often does not work for singles who feel lonely, since it becomes more difficult to meet someone and show him/her your true self, that is, who you are and who is the person he or she can fall in love with. In online dating, the story is different. In online dating, one can go at his/her own pace and not feel the same pressure he or she may feel with traditional offline dating. You can meet singles who have personalities you feel attracted to and the more interesting part is… that the other person will feel attracted to you too,,, no matter if you are shy, extrovert, introvert, loud, quiet, you do not like to go out or you do not like children… there are many people out there who are looking for a person like you!… and it is much easier to find this person at an online dating site.
There are many ways to contact these people as some sites allow you to chat with your match, send emails back and forth, or arrange a meeting. However you choose to conduct your dates is completely up to you and you get to choose who you go out with. Many of the sites offer you detailed backgrounds on the people you choose this way you know if you have things in common with the person. You will know if they share your values or convictions.
