Having been single for quite some time and having just come back from my trip of self-discovery in various countries, I decided to try out the NZ online dating scene. I have never tried meeting people online and to me it was a new thing and like all new things, it seemed an adventure.
Previously I though that it was quite absurd for people to meet people online. I mean how does it go talking to people onscreen? How can you get to know someone without even meeting them? How can you hope to meet someone special that way? Well, I have not met someone special yet but I am having an adventure meeting people and getting to know them.
It was not as bad as I thought, it was actually quite pleasant. True, some people might irritate you and even upset you for pretending to be something they are not but there are quite a few pleasant persons who I have met and who I have constant conversations with. I have even met some of them personally and have taken long dinners with them while getting to know them even more.
Some people might not like meeting people online but I say give it a try. As long as you remember to be careful it should not be too bad. What could you lose trying to meet people online, right?
