7 Reasons to Date Online

Whenever I tell people I date online, an apparent veil of incredulity washes over them as they invariably start to wonder “what’s wrong with her?” What’s a perfectly awesome, beautiful woman doing looking for love online? Oh, let me count the reasons!

7) There are a lot of awesome eligible singles online. It’s not just for the spinsters, nerds and socially awkward. Hello! I’m on there, too! ๐Ÿ˜€

Okay — maybe that’s not helping the case, but the truth is that there are a lot of cool people on there. It’s actually not much different from the general dating pool, except this sample at the very least, tends to be computer literate.

6) It’s like catalog shopping! You get to put in the size, height, education (and whatever other requirements) and click-through the thumbnails until you find someone who strikes your fancy.

5) You have access to people you would have normally not connected with. Your circle is only so big and you may not necessarily want to date anyone in it. How many of the guys or girls in your circle dated someone you know? (Sloppy seconds, anyone?) How often do you meet a brand new person in your circles? Online dating helps you cast a wider net.
You will be judged by your grammar
4) You can tell whether they’re literate. Even if you don’t care whether they know the difference between their, there and they’re, the way they write gives you some indication of their interests, humor and personality.

3) It’s QUITE entertaining. If you have seen my instagram posts, I know you’ve had some legit “LOL” moments from the emails I’ve posted. To be fair, I do get lots of really great emails, but the bad ones are sooooo much funnier. Laughter is good for the soul, y’all!

That’s okay. I’ll only be judging you by your grammar. O_o

2) It’s good practice. Paul Carrick Brunson said “Dating is an exploration of self.” Sometimes to know what you want, you have to figure out what you don’t want. Besides, I hate to be the one to break it to you, but you have to put yourself out there. Not dating anyone now? Create new opportunities. The universe demands it.

1) You can do it naked. You don’t HAVE to be naked, but you can. Or just wear pajamas… Point is, you don’t have to leave the comfort of your own home. No outfit, no makeup, no problem. Anything you can do naked is a good thing indeed! ๐Ÿ˜‰

Until next time, happy dating, y’all!

Love, Blessings, y Buena Vibra,

Dani V.

  1. I actually think dating online is smart because you get to filter out people earlier on in the game. Plus let’s face it — if you aren’t in college it’s just harder to meet people!

    • Agreed! It’s definitely much more efficient for me. I try not to be too judgmental, but really poor grammar really is a deal-breaker online. Do you have any?

      • I haven’t dated online — I met my fiancรฉ at a bar, but when I was dating I would also shoot people down for having poor grammar. Also, anyone who was uninterested in learning new things didn’t last.

  2. You are awesomely funny Daniela. I’m trying the online dating thing now as well, Hope the guys I encounter have good pics, and good grammar. ๐Ÿ™‚ Lol… I love this banter and feedback among us all. What a great, easygoing and supportive group.

    • Glad you’re enjoying it. As bad as it may sound, I’m a professional at this point. Let me know i you need any pointers. ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’ll be posting more as I go.

  3. I tried the online dating 10 years ago and would be open to do so again….been checking profiles and I am quite surprised. Love your blog Negra

  4. I just lead a call for the members of the Self-Care Circles I lead on the benefits of online dating and how to create an authentic and attractive online profile. I can soooo relate to the reaction you mentioned at the beginning of the post. I could almost sense a shift in the energy of the call when I mentioned what the topic was going to be. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. I completely agree with all your points. Shelly and I met online…heck, I was living in Dayton, Ohio at the time — how’s that for a wide net?…and our writing is one of the main reasons our relationship progressed. We get married in 9 days. Thanks for writing!

Leave some LOVE!
