Do not get carried away but be careful at each and every step.One of the advantages of dating online is for people that are shy or nervous about meeting in person, you can take some time online to get to know one another first.
Third advantage of online dating is the obvious one – getting to date from home!
You don’t have to change out of your pajamas or get dressed up or even get a sitter to date.
The selection can also be a con because, from what I experienced, new people don't sign up often so if there isn't anyone appealing on there to you, then you might have to wait or try something else.
I ended up changing my location to nearby areas a lot, and eventually the age, and that's what made the difference for me.
After talking for a while (I would say at least a month) you definitely do want to have a face to face meeting with the person to make sure there's chemistry.
(Also people tend to look different from how they look in a video chat.)For me, this was always one of the biggest cons.
You can also decide to go the tradition route as well and do both so that you have a lot of options available to you.
The more options you have, the better your chances.
The guys that would message you because they were desperate or all the wanted was to have sex.
It's usually pretty easy to weed out the serious guys from the sleezy guys,and the nice thing is on Ok Cupid you can apply filters for which messages actually get sent to you and which ones go into the filtered category.
Depending on the dating app that you use and whether you opt for the free version or the paid version (I used Ok Cupid for free and I found that was the best) you usually have a wide selection of people you can choose to message.
