Best Online Dating Sites: Global

Online dating has lost its taboo and is fast becoming the preferred way for most people to find love, especially older folk. Two of my very close relatives and a close friend have all found and married their soul mates online. These relationships are in no way fleeting or frivolous. The fact that people feel comfortable saying from the start that they're looking for a serious relationship is probably one of the most attractive things about online dating. The relationship blog has scoured the web to find the best online dating sites around, so you could have the love help you need. 

Face-to-face dating is great, but sometimes it can get complicated. There are increasingly more dos and don'ts in modern relationships.  Each side isn't sure about the rules and are both reluctant to say exactly what they want out of the relationship, especially if they're looking for marriage and building a life together. I have never personally used an online dating site, but based on the experience of family and my friend, I can see how it can work for you.

Would you give online dating a try

There are positive points to dating online. Most importantly, Falling in love becomes about the person rather than the look, and arguments can be more constructive because impulsive shouting isn't possible :-)

I suppose there are also downsides to online dating. For example, many people may be more inclined to hide their true personalities if you can't see them. Also, many people have been known to upload younger pictures of themselves (in some cases, pictures of other people entirely). Many sites require a fee and some people can't afford to do this (though, the fee must be much more affordable than constant dates).

Say what you want about it, online dating is becoming more and more acceptable. The US has recently recorded 5% of their married couples to have met online. Are you a part of this growing statistic? If not, are you willing to give online dating a try?

I tried Yahoo once, long long ago, and I can tell you the experience left me in awe! The person I met, was not the same person in the profile. He wouldn't even offered to buy me a cup of coffee :-(

However, I have seen successful union too from Match.

Yes, Icy. That can be one of the drawbacks, but as far as I hear, most people put up their true pictures. If they're serious about finding someone special, they would. If they're just playing around, then they may not.

I suppose in real life people can also pretend to be what they're not.
