Online dating websites, from finding love to loving fun.

I was curious, really curious, about online dating websites.  As a divorced parent, I had no real idea how I would ever develop a meaningful relationship again.  The bar scene is not for me and with kids I have no time to be “bar hopping” around town.  Working full time I have very little opportunity to meet anyone new so it just made sense that maybe one of these websites could be the ticket for me to find a new relationship. 

Thus began my investigation into these sites and what they were all about.

What I have discovered is that online dating websites are vastly different from one to the next.  Some sites have a very casual “feel” to them.  they appear to cater to a client that is looking for a person to spend time with who enjoys going out and having a good time.  Online dating websites also vary in terms of demographic.  There are those focused on religious denomination, others focused on ethnic background like AfroRomance, and yet others that focus on sexual inclination.

Other online dating websites seem to be geared more toward people who are looking for a more committed relationship.  Perhaps marriage and family somewhere down the road.  This got me to thinking about what it was that I was looking for… 

Having just come out of a marriage, I decided that I needed a break from all of the seriousness and that it was more of a casual relationship that I was looking for.  Someone to go out with, talk to, spend time with.  If more came of it that would be fine; but for now I knew I needed online dating websites that would be easy and fun.

In many cases I found that some people seemed to be looking more for friendship than a love connection.  They seemed lonely and as anyone who is grown up knows, it can be hard to make friends as a grown up. When we are kids we have playtime and time to develop connections and ties that bind.  As adults it can be a bit harder to do. 

I really loved the fact that there were so many different online dating websites that catered to all kinds of clients with all different type of needs and wants.  of clients with all different type of needs and wants. 

In time my own personal needs may change if and when I feel ready to commit to another person.  Then I will look at websites with more specific profiles and who offer clients with needs that are similar to mine.  For now I am all about companionship and fun…with stress on the FUN!
