Any long time readers out there know the story of how Match and I met: on an online dating site. I know there are more and more people taking the plunge and trying them out and I say, go for it! You never know when you might meet your soulmate. I remember one of the first things Match said to me when we first started dating and I asked what made him sign up for a dating site. “It’s just not that likely that I was ever going to meet my future wife in a bar.” And look how true that was!
Now the question is which site to use? It used to be there were just a handful to choose from. There are more and more these days. A lot of them are the same basic formula. You create a profile with pictures and you fill out a basic profile, and maybe you get to instant message with someone you’re interested in.
I recently heard about www.luvfree.com, which is a 100% free online dating site. First off, the fact that it is free sets it apart from a lot of dating sites out there. I think what’s the most unique about it is the live video chat feature. How fun! It allows you to “meet” that guy or girl you think is pretty cool before actually going and meeting them in the real world.
I think this is a really great idea for those that might be nervous about meeting someone in person that you’ve only met online. You’d get to hear their voice and see their face and know they are a real person. You could interact and get to know each other, so by the time you have your first date you don’t feel like you’re going in blind. I think for all the single readers out there it’s definitely worth a try. Plus it’s free! You can’t beat that!
