Who is online dating really for?

– Posted in: dating, sponsored post

So your latest blind date was more chump than Prince Charming. Let-downs like this make us rethink our love lives. More and more singletons are entering cyberspace to find the perfect partner–and it’s not just seasonal blues.

Professionals who are short on time

Long commutes, business meetings, and late nights at the office leave little time for romance. Websites such as eHarmony are ideal for busy professionals as they can plan their love life around work.

Instead of wasting time on dead-end dates, this site allows users to enjoy romantic meals out with other singles who share the same interests, values, and life goals. Many sites also offer a mobile service, enabling you to connect with matches when you’re on the go.

Single parents who struggle to meet new people

The toughest challenge when looking for love is finding someone you connect with. It’s even harder when you rarely meet anyone new at all. This is a problem many single parents face. Busy lives and looking after the kids makes it difficult to try out new social situations. Online dating sites have thousands of members for you to view–matches you may never have met in your day-to-day life.

People who want a shared heritage

For singletons with an overseas heritage, be that Poland or the Middle East, dating someone with the same background can be important. This can be because of religion or a shared understanding of the culture. Online dating is ideal for these singletons as Arab dating websites let them define and filter matches.

Singletons who don’t know where to start

The dating game isn’t just for the young. The young-at-heart are also turning to online dating websites to find love and companionship. After being in a relationship for a long time, it’s hard to know where to start looking if you find yourself single again.

Dating websites are a good place to start because all the hard work is done for you. The resulting matches are perfectly suited to you and your lifestyle, leaving you with the task of having fun.


Everyone has a mental list of attributes that they want in their ideal partner, whether it’s a certain religion, a muscular physique, or ginger hair. It’s hard to pin down why we fancy certain people, but the fact of the matter is we all have a picture in our minds.

That’s why online dating IS the right path for you. Give yourself the best chance of a successful relationship by finding individuals just like you and who fit the mold of Mr. Right. What could be simpler?

I am not the author of this post. Many thanks to the fine folks at eHarmony for the sponsor!

Tell the folks at eHarmony that my hubs and I are ready for our commercial. 🙂

We are eHarmony grads.

I really want my sister to find love. Maybe an online dating site would work for her.
