Mate1.com Shares Tricks to Getting the Most Out of the Online Dating Experience
Submitted by: I-Newswire
Montreal, Quebec (OPENPRESS) June 4, 2012 - A recent report from TIME Magazine addresses the growing popularity of online dating in mainstream culture. The report states that millions of people are lining up to make profiles on free and paid dating services because they believe that these services supply more choices for romance. A new study from Northwestern University is putting that belief under scrutiny. The study found that, despite the claims made on many matchmaking sites about the accuracy of their matching algorithms, a person's success when dating online hinges on the amount of effort they put in. One matchmaking site, Mate1.com , offers ways to improve your search for a trusting and caring partner.
The article stresses the point that if you want to meet a potential partner online, you should keep your choices limited. Instead of signing up for many sites, choose one that fits your needs and do not spend too much time browsing for more options. It is important to remember that if you want to find someone that is committed to dating, you need to maintain the same priorities. While you should not expose yourself to too many options, the article also states that it is important to keep an open mind. It suggests not filtering out superficial qualifications such as height or hair color, as you may miss out on someone who shares similar interests.
The article also warns against using sites with generic conventions. Popular dating sites, such as eHarmony and PlentyofFish, may have lots of users flocking to them, but they all seem to follow a basic profile formula that may match you with users who aren't as focused on finding a partner as you are. Paid sites can also focus on a particular interest group and can add elements that make the search more personal and interactive. Mate1.com, for instance, offers unique live chat and voice recording features to its members for an improved personal experience.
According to TIME Magazine, some people are still wary to join paid dating sites, and feel that it could be a waste of money, especially when there are so many free alternatives. However, it is important to remember that even traditional dating techniques require a financial commitment. For example, if a person chose to go to a singles bar or go on a blind date, they would most likely have to pay for a few drinks, dinner or ways to improve their appearance.
Paid dating services require a financial commitment on your part and as a result, they can ensure you meet someone that's equally committed to form a relationship. Mate1.com CEO Elizabeth Wasserman adds, "If you're paying for online dating, you're making finding someone a real priority in your life. On a paid dating site, you know that your fellow singles are as well, so it makes your chances of success that much better."
With over 40 million members, Mate1.com has created a comprehensive database of singles since the company launched in 2003. Standing apart from other online dating services, Mate1.com offers unique feature such as adaptive matching, newsfeeds, live chat and voice recording. The site implements statistical data to help members achieve the best possible matches.
