online dating

I sometimes feel I am like a broken gramophone record; for those of you that don’t know, these were the old record players your Granddad would listen to back in the 80s. The needle would sometimes slip and have the same sentence on repeat over and over. This is me. I know, it can be annoying but here’s the thing:

Online dating is awesome when you get down to the nitty gritty. It binds us people that are normally shy and reserved together with the other sex. Normally we wouldn’t have the balls to talk to that hot looking blonde over the table swamped by those 20 guys, or the ripped guy that looks like he’s a clone of Bradd Pitt; he’s surrounded by 5 scorching hot women, no chance he’ll talk to me! Well, say no more; the Internet has been throwing tons of people that would never normally cross paths with each other into a frenzy of togetherness.

And we need not stop at social boundaries, we can look at geographical boundaries:

Like Japanese women / men? Awesome; you can connect via the internet for the price of a landline monthly rental. How about Mexican people? Can’t afford to make the trip? Hah! Fire up the internet and connect with a few; see where life takes you! Thailand? I like Thai people, their food and their culture. Wallah, the internet will solve your obstacle, no need for a bankrupting around the world trip. The best part of all this? You don’t even need to join a dating website. Seriously, I’ve met women in the deepest darkest areas of the internet that no-one would ever think about.

Think of your digital life as an extension of your real one. Unless you’re a fake douchebag then of course you will act the same on the web as you do in real life, albeit you’ll be a little less reserved. And I’m sure a few of you will be nodding your head remembering the last drunk boob/cock picture you sent off to that deserving someone lol. We all meet and connect with new people through our travels online. I’m forever meeting new and exciting people everywhere. Think of it as if it was your weekly trip to the grocery store; there are people EVERYWHERE, just times that by a Billion because we can access anywhere at anytime, apart from of course illegal websites, but that’s not my domain 🙂

Here are some, but not limited to the places I have met women. These are free and great if you’re looking to build natural, healthy relationships with people:

1. Facebook


You might actually think that this place would be an absolute orgy of people connecting with one another but it’s actually not really designed for use like this. Or, perhaps it isn’t any more in 2015 (if any of you remember some of the crazy dating apps we had back in the late 2000’s). Facebook was rated as one of the dodgiest places to hang out pre 2012 bar porn websites and illegal downloading sites. Basically it ranked as the 4th dodgiest place to be. They’ve done a lot of work since then to clean it up, and for the most part it’s clean. So clean in fact that people are generally wary of connecting with strangers and generally tend to keep in their own friend circles. Definitely not a brilliant way for connecting with and socialising with new people: however this is a great aftermath tool. Certainly after you’ve had introductions and now know new people – by all means, connect through Facebook. It’s a lovely deeper insight to other peoples lives. Why did I put this here? Well, if I didn’t, you’d all ask why 🙂 Although after initial meetup, this is a great dating service for free!

2. Forums


Forums are a great way to connect with men and women alike from many cultures and countries. By doing a targeted search on Google (i.e. night life in London forum) you will come across at least one place that you can chat and talk to like minded people with similar agendas. Forums are generally used as a social tool on the Internet and you can quite often find great people. If you fancy, find a singles forum and hook up! Some of them even meet up!

3. Instant Messenger programs


Skype, Yahoo messenger, Google Talk, Palringo and many more applications all have groups where you share, talk and collaborate with people over the internet. I’m quite positive that most of them have singles groups / rooms too; which are for the most part fun and refreshing. Easy to install, and easy to set up. I have in the past spent countless hours having fun with great looking women on these. It’s immense fun and satisfying.

With everything though, make sure you are cautious of who you meet online. Opportunists know this will be a forever green niche and there will always be lonely hearts seeking their true love and there will always be someone looking to make a quick buck or even more from you. Exercise caution at all times! Well, don’t go in like a scared little cat, these things should be fun and adventurous but please use your common sense. If people aren’t very forthcoming about themselves then alarm bells should start ringing straight away!

That’s it for now. I hope you’ve enjoyed this article – please feel free to read on 🙂
