Since I posted up about Donna and her online dating with eHarmony and my experience of online dating, I have had an email asking if there really are ‘real blokes’ on the dating sites and aren’t they all after one thing. This sadly is sometimes the portrayal of finding love on the internet but it’s not necessarily so.
First off it would depend on which sites you use. You’re much more likely to come across ‘dating players’ if the site is a free service. If you are after something more than a casual thing I really would recommend you trying an experienced and established site like eHarmony for two main reasons.
First there its not free, a player is a lot less likely to part with cash to find a one night fling if they can find those for free on lesser sites.
Secondly on eHarmony they do the matching for you after you have filled in their questionnaires. These questionnaires are there to get an insight into you and the sort of person you want to meet. Once you have filled in all the details they then suggest to you who would suit you.
A player is a lot less likely to go through the entire questionnaire and pay money for casual flings.
So is there such a thing as finding love through online dating sites with blokes who are not after one thing? Yes. If you still don’t believe me, Donna has proved that there is love to be found on the internet in her latest post Lightning can strike twice..She reports of how she met someone and fell in love but again I won’t spoil the ending so that you can have a read.
And if you want further proof – If you read my other post you will know that i tried online dating with two of my friends. I can happily report both had serious relationships with people they met online. One of my friends, who is a single mum too, is actually still in the same serious relationship 7 years on. She met her other half on a date through the dating site and now has a beautiful home together with her children.
