For years, people met one another either by going out into the town’s local hangouts, being set up by friends or family members on a blind date, or they turn to the church and look within the congregation. Sometimes you’d be able to meet someone interesting and genuinely want to hang out with, but often times you have to go through numerous blind dates and failed pairings to find that one.
You can only kiss so many frogs before you’re ready to throw in the towel. With online dating, you are able to look through your potential matches before you agree to go out with them. Why, you can check out their profiles the moment they send you a message. If they don’t have any qualities that you are looking for, you can thank them for their time but politely decline their advances. It’s that simple.
If you do like what their profile says and their message doesn’t sound like it was written by a third grader or it wasn’t vulgar, you can respond and start the “getting to know each other” process.
