Is Online Dating Starting a New Sexual Revolution
by Jennifer Lester

As I was working on my web site the other day, the news came on the TV with a report about online dating and casual sex.

The theory is that online dating is causing an increase in people engaging in casual sex – a so-called new sexual revolution.

Internet Dating Its Not For Geeks

Six months ago an old school friend and I were chatting over coffee, putting the world to rights as women do. She was bemoaning her lack of success in meeting the right sort of men. I asked her if she had tried using an internet dating service, and the look of horror that spread across her face gave the instant answer of course not! Internet dating, she informed me, was for the sad, desperate, geeky or freaky

Sadly this type of response is typical of people from all walks of life. Why sadly? Because those who instantly dismiss such services are missing out on a great opportunity  [More >>]

Sure, some people are using the net to find partners for discreet affairs and intimate encounters. These same people could just be going out and picking someone up in a bar or a club. I think that they are being a little bit safer doing it on the net.

When they are browsing for their partner online, they have a chance to get to know a little bit about them. They are in the safety of their own home while they chat. Sure, someone could be lying in their communications, but that is true in the offline world of dating too. As I have said before, I believe there is a tendency to be more honest online because you will not have to face the possible rejection the same way as in person.

I hear it over and overIt was going so great, and then she disappeared on me why? What happenedwe were having such a great time together. Im tired of this happeningI want to date sexy women, but I want them to stick around. Do you have any dating tips for me?

As long as these people are practicing safe sex, what does it really matter? Obviously, they also need to set other guidlines for their own safety…again as they would offline. The internet is not going to make a person have more affairs then they would otherwise. The internet does not make a married man/woman cheat, that is a character trait, good or bad.

There are online dating services set up for these types of relationships specifically. If it is not what you are looking for, then you just have to choose a different one and be clear in your personal ad that you are looking for a real relationship. On the other hand, if you are looking for these types of services, there are plenty of them out there.

Remember too, all the loving commited relationships that online dating has created. All those couples (including my husband and myself) who would have never found each other otherwise. It can’t be all bad.

=====================

Good, bad or indifferent, the internet has opened doors that were closed to us before. What a joy I feel being a part of it.

FInding a Safe Dating Site

Seems like everywhere we surf on the Internet nowadays we run across this little advertisement: ‘Free online personals’. They are everywhere, they are dating sites, and more are opening up shop every day.

Welcome to the newest internet gold rush. More and more people are signing up to these new and “free” dating sites. What they are really getting is a place on the web where they can post their profile and let strangers contact them. As more and more dating sites pile up on the web, more people are ending up with very distasteful experiences because of this. Why? 99% of today’s (and tomorrow’s) dating sites do not screen their members at all. This means there are sex offenders, predators, scam artists mixed in with genuine people who are looking to find a match. Dating services need to be very discretionary and much safer, until that time comes here are some important things to consider when thinking about joining a dating site.  [More >>]
