They say that the first step is the hardest in a 10 miles long journey… Well, we aren’t monks, but we can confirm that many singles struggle to bring themselves to actually sign up to a dating site. But the truth is: gathering your courage is the hardest part. There are certain times in someone’s life when opening up for others can lift up the spirit and help defeat depression. However, you must understand that mending a lonely heart is a natural process that takes some time. Forcing a friend or family member to register on a dating site after a breakup, divorce or abuse is a terrible idea. However, after a considerable amount of time they must be motivated to move on. And this is the time when the excuses start coming up.
Ready, Set, DATE!
There are quite a few lines we heard over the years. Most of them are aiming to delay for a not-so-distant volume of time, such as “I cannot join now, I don’t have any good pictures” or “There is a major project deadline at work this week, I’ll sign up afterwards”. There are also singles who refuse the idea because dating sites charge them for money, or they just prefer the traditional method of bumping into the one. Both of them are somewhat flawed arguments, since no free dating method is as efficient and well-organized as a paid profile on a dating site, which made this form of matchmaking become the number one meeting method, thus the “old-school” way is the inferior one now. We recommend taking a deep breath, and getting aboard that dating site. After your profile is complete, the natural curiosity will guide you through. You’ll start exploring the matchmaking, and it wouldn’t take long to find a partner you can relate to. In case you don’t feel ready for romance it’s okay too. You can state that you are looking for friendship only on your profile page, so others will know what to expect. Either way, you’ll find out that all those excuses were holding you back from having a good time online.
