Finding Dates on Facebook

by Courtney on January 26, 2012

Networking has been around longer than the internet. Before the internet was in every home, the people network was in your church, work, school, and was part of your neighborhood events. The airwave of the people network was a medium that is as old as man – “word of mouth.”

One popular form of the word of mouth networking was called a “whisper network.” It went like this. Joe whispers to Helen; “hey, have you heard that Tommy likes Susan.”  Before you knew it, everyone knew that Tommy had a thing for Susan. Word of mouth is a powerful networking tool and today is even more powerful thanks to social sites like Facebook. [click to continue…]

When is it Safe to Take the Next Step?

by Courtney on September 27, 2011

When you are dating online -when do you know when it is time to take the next step? For me, especially being a woman, was one of my main concerns that I have always had when online dating. Now that I have been on over a dozen dates with people that I met on the internet, I feel pretty confident when meeting up with someone for the first time.

First things first, there is nothing wrong with being paranoid, me personally, I have learned to trust my gut instinct and can usually tell right off the bat if someone is real or not, or is a creep for that matter. One rule that I have used is that I have to talk to the person at least a couple of times before meeting up in person. I have even went as far as video chatting before actually going out on a real date. Some sites may offer this, others won’t, but there is always Skype for this, which is a free service where you can chat with friends, and in my opinion is a great tool for online dating.

by Courtney on July 2, 2011

Many people are skeptical when it comes to online dating, for the very reason that they are not used to it, and for a lot of people, they do not want to venture into the unknown by joining a free online dating site. But let me just draw up a scenario for you so that you can compare online dating against finding someone in crowded place to set up a date with, such as a busy grocery store.

Out of the 300 hundred people that are in that grocery store, there will be about 25 of them that are in your age group of whom you want to date, cut that in half for males or females, you are down to 12, cut that in half again to those that you might be attracted to, now you are down to 5 or six of you are lucky.

by Courtney on June 5, 2011

Just how popular has online dating become over the past few years? Here’s  a hint, more than half the singles that are in the United States have admitted to trying an online dating site of some sort.
