What Are You Really Looking For Online?

If you are considering dipping your toe into the ocean of online dating sites, then you really need to be aware of what you are looking for. With hundreds of online dating sites each advertising special deals and offers, it can be somewhat daunting to know what you are even looking for! I have had my fair share of online dating encounters over the last few years, some brilliant and some dreadful but the main piece of advice that I could give you is to put yourself into the situation that you want to be in.

When I was at University, my cheeky friends and I thought it might be fun to sign up to some dating sites purely to look at hot guys and have some fun. If you are planning on just using dating sites to boost your sex life or simply for some flirtatious online chats, then there is plenty of choice around. Be aware that if you make it clear that you are looking for a casual encounter then you may get a few unexpected surprises. When I indicated that I was just out for ‘a bit of fun’ in my profile, I was sent photos of things that even my drunken student self found pretty shocking.

Chats can also get insanely raunchy, as many people see dating sites as a perfect opportunity to live out their wildest fantasies. If you are not looking for anything serious then enjoy pushing the boundaries, however if you feel uncomfortable, the great thing about online dating is that you can simply log off and even block people.

If illicit encounters are not your thing and you really want to find someone who you could settle down with, then there are tons of dating sites that will be right up your street. If you are looking for something specific in the type of person that you would like to meet, then there is a place to cater for you whatever your heart desires.

No matter how obscure your preferences are, there is bound to be a site for you. There are religion based sites such as JDate.com for Jewish singles or ChristianMingle.com for Christians in search of love. If you are looking for senior sites then you will find plenty and there are an abundance of sites for those love rats out there who are looking to cheat on their partners! The extent of the niche sites out there is astounding including ones for little people, tall people, smokers and even people who are incarcerated in jails!

If you have love on your mind then make sure not to give off sexual references in your profile or photo. Despite lots of people seeing dating sites as light hearted fun, there are just as many who really are looking for their soul mate. Join the top dating sites that get good ratings and read some reviews to get an idea of which are the best. In order to attract the kind of people that will suit you, make sure to be genuine and honest about yourself. Enjoy the experience and take the chance at approaching people that you find interesting. Who knows what may unfold?
