Speed dating v online dating
As one who believes in casting a wide net, I tell singles that you really need to do both. In reality, online dating, if done correctly, is just a method or service that will get you out there in the real world to meet someone offline and meet more people.
Pro: Dating sites have entered the events business giving you more choices to meet in person, without the pressure.
Con: Singles may feel shy and not ask someone out for an official date.
Pro: You can easily date in groups, while developing new friendships with people with similar interests.
Con: You're limited to your existing social circles or regular activities and will meet less people.
Pro: It's pre-dating, without the pressure of wondering if you're date's profile is accurate.Julie's the author of the bestseller, The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online.
