4 underrated aspects of online dating

While you don't have to search very hard to find an article running down online dating or bemoaning the good old days when it didn't exist, its enduring popularity and continuing evolution is a testament to how much the internet has become an inseparable part of our lives. With that in mind, here are 4 aspects of online dating that remain highly unappreciated.

It widens the potential dating pool

If you were to say 20 years ago that you could potentially date anyone in your city, your conversation partner would probably think that you were just speaking metaphorically. Online dating has turned that into a literal truth. With the innovation of dating websites and apps boasting nearly universal enrollment, the chances of finding the right person for you have multiplied astronomically.

It effectively screens out unsuitable partners

You know what your deal breakers are. Online dating gives you not only the ability to tactfully put these non-negotiable elements out front but compels you to do so. This honest and open declaration of what you expect from your partner is a much healthier way to begin a relationship than the uncomfortable shuffling of priorities that characterized dating in the past.

It puts dating back into your hands

While in the past decorum may have compelled you to grit your teeth and go out on a hopeless date just because a friend or relative set you up, the advent of online dating has given you the agency to determine your own dating strategy. When Aunt Petunia is adamant that you are perfect for her tennis partner's doctor, you can politely let her know that you already have plans thanks to online dating.

It makes dating fun again

It should come as no surprise that dating is stressful, and meeting a new person can be nerve-wracking. However, online dating has the benefit of giving you as much time as you need to speak online before making that fateful decision. With this added comfort, the first-date jitters and the question and answers sessions are often shelved in favor of skipping right to the fun.
