You're thirty and single. You're looking for someone to settle down with and all the opportunities you get seem to be for short term relationships and sexual escapades. Everyone you know and everyone they know seem to be married or living in. Some are already divorced, some others are planning to split while a few have kids. You've already considered online dating and have been tired of the inane responses you get. A few dozen winks, scores of nudges and email which has also been sent to two dozen other girls. Whew! Ok. We'll show you a way out.
First things first. Does Internet dating work? Well yes and no. It works at the right site. Most dating sites have tons of profiles of teenagers and twenty somethings who're very far away from the thought of getting married. They're looking for someone they can hook up with for a while, dump. Rinse. Repeat. If you're looking for meaningful relationships possibly and hopefully leading to the altar, most dating sites will only lead you on a wild goose chase.
There are a few dating web sites which will help you get in touch with thirty plus single men and women who're looking for long term relationships or commitment oriented relationships. The good news is that it costs nothing to create profiles on these web sites. The not-so-good news is that this requires some work and patience. It's not like you drop a dollar and get a Coke. We wish it could be that simple but it just isn't. Here're the web sites:
Date.com is one of the oldest and largest dating websites that has most of its membership across USA, Canada and Puerto Rico. You can browse photo profiles. Initial membership is free.
eHarmony lets you create profiles for free. You're asked to answer several questions about your personality. You're asked several questions about the sort of person you're looking for. These are typically yes/no answers and it doesn't take too long to go through with all of it. After this is over, you're matched with specific members of eHarmony, based on your personality profile and theirs! You can then get in touch with these people, ask them specific questions. They can ask you specific questions. You can also cut to the chase and fast track this whole process, assuming the other member is willing (most are). Now, for some of this functionality, eHarmony charges a monthly fee. Ever so often, they also are nice enough to create discount coupons which we list here. If not, well, what're a few dollars in the pursuit of finding your soul mate. You can spend all your money and buy even an extra minute of life, can you?
