Is free online dating becoming totally lame? Yes, yes it is.
I had to throw that out there before I started this article. I don’t want to kill my credibility. My goal is to be as transparent and honest with you guys as possible. This is why I wanted to straight up tell you that free online dating is slowly becoming totally lame.
If you don’t believe me, allow me to share this story with you.
My friend decided to start an account on a online dating service. Wow, big deal, eh? Well it’s a big deal because he created a female account. He used pictures of a female friend (with her permission of course) and he created a basic profile. He didn’t put anything ridiculous like “looking for fun” or anything like that. Instead he kept it simple and just put some basic interests up. Long story short, that same day he got two pages worth of messages. So tell me, imagine how many messages your typical female on a free online dating site gets on a daily basis?
If that story doesn’t help put things into perspective on the landscape of free online dating then I don’t know what will.
Why’s totally free online dating becoming lame?
Since free online dating is well, free, it attracts the wrong crowd often. On top of this there are many other issues with free online dating services that I’ve listed below:
- Too many dudes.
- Too much competition.
- Difficult to transition from online to meet in person.
- Everyone is horny
- Girls have their guard up.
- Girls are conceited due to all of the emails they get.
- Fake accounts.
Those are just the main reasons as to why I could think of as to why free online dating isn’t the way it used to be. Don’t worry though, this article isn’t meant to scare you away from the world of online dating.
What’s the good news about free online dating?
Well free online dating doesn’t cost you anything so I guess that’s a positive. If you’re a broke college student or a young professional with lots of debt, you might not be willing to spend money on a monthly basis for a online dating service. That’s your call.
Aside from being free, you can still dominate online dating sites and get laid many times per month. I personally have had no luck with online dating, but I have two friends that swear by online dating. These dudes work such long hours and the only chance they have to mingle is online. They’ve managed to meet more girls online than most guys can in person.
The good news for you is that because everyone sucks so bad at online dating you don’t have to be that impressive. You just have to be better than the average horny guy that hasn’t had sex in two years. We’re going to cover this topic in greater detail soon, so stay tuned.
