Dating Tips for 2016 and Beyond

 

Although this site is primarily for people with families and people who are otherwise ready to purchase a home, today I'd like to offer some guidance to those who have yet to find that special someone. Although the concept of dating, at its core, is a rather straightforward one, it's clear that in the modern age, finding a date can be anything but. Part of the problem is the myriad of options we have today.

My main advice is to keep things simple. If you are looking for a date or a partner in life, the best way to find one is be honest about your intentions and join a dating site. This may feel artificial or contrived to some people, but it's time to get over such antiquated notions. You don't want to be left behind while the rest of the world moves ahead in the 21st century.

Already, the stigma attached to online dating has dissipated quite a bit. Statistics from Pew Research shows that just in the last 10 years, the perception of online dating has changed dramatically. Today, a majority of Amercians say it's a good way to meet someone, and one in five people under the age of 35 have tried an online dating site.

So where should you begin? The best place in my opinion is Match.com, for one simple reason. It's the most popular dating site in the country, with the greatest number of members. Add to that the fact that you can get a free trial for Match.com and use the service for 3 days without charge, and it should be a no-brainer to at least check out what the site is all about. If you find for whatever reason that Match.com isn't right for you, you've risked nothing at that point. You can then move onto eHarmony, Zoosk, Christian Mingle, or any of the other prominent sites and see if they work any better for you.
