American Singles Need To Know That Online Dating Sites Work

February 14th, 2010

I am not saying all Americans are singles. But I do not know why most people around me happen to be singles. When I say singles it does not mean they are never married. A few of them are divorced. However, a couple of them are never married before and they are in their 40’s. I was curious why they are still singles, no boyfriend or girlfriend. But I did not have the guts to ask them why because I did not want to be nosy.

Finally, the opportunity came along when they asked me where I met my boyfriend. I said I met him from an online dating site. They were surprised and amazed at the same time. They told me they never thought this online dating would work and they were curious to know more about this Internet dating world. Though, I did not have a chance to ask them why they are still single besides I already knew the circle of their daily life; getting up, going to work, and going back home. That is what they do everyday, and that is what they told me. On top of that, I just found out they never believed in online dating before either, at least not until now. I got them going with this new idea of online dating.

I never thought before I would become someone who can give dating advice to people I know. And because I met my boyfriend from online dating site, now they want me to suggest online dating sites to them. I suggested some of online dating services to them. But I first ask them if they are willing to pay to use the services from a dating site. They looked at me smiling and say, no if not necessary. Because they are still not quite sure if this thing will work. If it involves a service fee, they would feel more comfortable and rather pay for the dating agency for that kind of service. I do not blame them for that as I found my boyfriend on a free dating site or free online dating service. It worked for me.

A couple of weeks later, they were both members of a few free online dating sites I suggested. They mentioned that they had a hard time to put their personal ad up because they are not familiar with sharing information about themselves on the Internet, but they are getting better and more comfortable. They mentioned that they have not found anyone yet, but had good opportunities to chat with few other online singles. This experience is new to them and they enjoy and love this moment, but they do not want to put too much hope on it, as they are still new to this Internet dating world. They just take it as it goes to see what happens. At least they now realize that online dating personals might actually work for them. And there is a fat chance to know someone and possibly meet someone through these online dating services which they never thought would be possible before.

Any American singles or any online singles out there who read this article, if you didn’t try this already, I would suggest you to try a free online dating service or even a paid online dating site for yourself. All in all, it worked for me and, hopefully, it works for you as well.

Free Online Dating Sites For American Singles

February 11th, 2010

There are high numbers of American singles or unmarried Americans. The number of American singles increase every year. And According to U.S. Census Bureau – America’s Families and Living Arrangements 2008: Unmarried and Single Americans Week, there are 95.9 million unmarried Americans 18 and older in 2008; this group comprised 43 percent of all U.S. residents 18 and older, 53 percentage of unmarried Americans 18 and older who were women, 61 Percentage of unmarried Americans 18 or older who had never been married, 15.8 million of unmarried Americans 65 and older, 87 of unmarried men 18 and older for every 100 unmarried women in the United States, 52.9 million of households maintained by unmarried men and women which these households comprised 45 percent of households nationwide, and 32.2 million of people who lived alone which comprised 28 percent of all households, up from 17 percent in 1970. That is awful a lot of American singles.  Why are there so many unmarried and American singles? Who knows, but how many online dating sites and services available to serve unmarried and American singles? Not enough, I believe, especially, a free online dating service or a free online dating site.

Although, there are already plenty of paid online dating sites which singles have to pay to create personal ad and use all the dating services and features, but most Americans do not want or cannot afford to pay for a service. Besides most Americans tend to work hard and have no time to look for dating. Nevertheless, there are only few big free online dating sites available but not all targeting specifically on singles in America. Free online dating sites and free online dating services are obviously needed  for American singles. And those free dating sites and services that are already out there should be well promoted in public and be aware by American singles. Fortunately, there are quite a few of free online dating sites nowadays that offer nice features or pretty much all of the features you can get from paid online dating sites for free. The features are such as instant messaging, chat room, webcam chat, private messaging, upload music and video, add friend and favorites, view admirers and visitors, and etc. So there is no need to pay for online dating anymore. And it is recommended to have profile on several free dating sites which will increase the chance of getting noticed by other online singles.

So in order to help American singles to find their loved one, we need more free and good online dating sites and services. This, of course, will substantially help Americans to be able to find their loved one while living with their busy life.
