If you're a Man, you've probably been to bars and clubs looking to meet women. It can be a tough task, with lots of rejection, embarrasment and I bet you've thought about packing it in on more than a few occassions.

If you're a Lady, you're bound to have received a lot of unwanted advances from guys too drunk to even mumble coherently, born losers or people who simply don't interest you.

The Internet could be your ticket to happier dating, long-term relationships, and if it's just fun you're after, you'll find many singles who're looking for exactly that.

The world's your Oyster
On joining one of the bigger online dating services, the world truly is your oyster. If it's Ski-loving 20 year olds, who love football, are up for anything and live in Colorado, then a few clicks of your mouse and a dating service might return a list of those type of people.

You can search for people with variety of interests and narrow down your choice. Can you do that as simply and effectivelly offline? (Answers on a postcard please...)

Just out of Bed Look
When you go to singles bars you really do have to scrub up, don that expensive suit, and make an impression before any words come out of your mouth. Then you have to keep that person's interest with your witty repertoire of one-liner's. It's hard ain't it?

On the net, you can sift through profiles of singles looking for the type of person you'd like to get to know, without the disadvantages of having to make that first impression count too much. And you can do so from the comfort of your bed, wearing whatever you want and so forth.

Oh, and these are singles who are actually looking. There's none of that harsh rejection you might experience in a nightclub or bar. It isn't a place for losers either. Take a breeze through some of the profiles on a large dating site and you'll be suprised at the sheer variety of people who are actively looking. From Lawyer's to lumberjacks, everybody seems represented.

Use the Charm
If you ain't good looking, well you can use charm and impress the opposite sex with your witty emails, thoughtful answers and get to know them before revealing that photo. Of course, by then they might be willing to cut you slack if you ain't God's gift. That's got to be good, hasn't it?

Getting to Know Each Other

You're not restricted to just conversing with one person. Keep interested in several people and get to know them via email before committing to that first phone conversation, or first date. 

There are many other advantages - comparitively speaking it's cheap, there's a huge scope and more and more people are joining dating services every day.
