Do You Believe in Love at First “Online Meet-Cute”?

Meet singles for free, meet local people free, meet girls for free…you know how the ads go. And maybe you’ve been tempted once or twice to try it out? If so, you aren’t alone. Statistics show that closer to two thirds of all singles have tried meeting women online, or meeting men online. Did they find it terrifying? Maybe, but after the first “online meet-cute” they usually find it very easy. Easier than the local pub in fact.

So What’s up with Meeting Someone in the Pub/Bar?

When you go to a pub, or bar, you have to figure out if the person who caught your eye is willing to have a chat with you. Maybe he or she is surrounded by a million and one friends. Maybe you just spilled red wine on your shirt. Maybe the person’s significant other will show up any minute now. Online on the other hand you know that someone has listed themselves as single, it’s easy to shoot them an introductory email, and you can meet them without having a million of their drunk friends around you. There are also a couple of thousand more singles available online than in your local pub.

To meet people online free of charge might not be entirely possible, but you can meet thousands of singles in one go, for less than ten beers at the bar.

If a man says “I want to meet girls in my area” don’t send him to the pub, send him online! He might not be able to meet people online free of charge, but he will be able to meet thousands for a dime.
