Meeting someone in a bar can be great. Given you do meet them, that is. Bars are fun places to hang out in with friends, relax after a long week and have some fun. The chance of meeting other singles in bars isn’t always great though. Of course there will be some singles, but how many? Will they be singles you like? Will their friends be nice, or over the top drunk that night?
Meeting singles in bars is simply random. Whilst there will likely always be singles, the ones you’d like to meet might not show up on a night when you are there.
Online dating gives you a whole new level of opportunity when it comes to living the single life. Online there are thousands of singles from the Doncaster area and beyond. You can always contact them - you don’t both have to be online at the same time. It simply opens up the dating field in a whole new way.
Chatting to someone online is simple as well. Either you send them a PM if they’re offline, or a chat request if they’re online and signed into the chat room. It’s not rocket science to get a conversation going. And if they aren’t interested there is no awkwardness - they simply won’t reply.
Dating is a numbers game - so up your odds!
When you meet someone in a bar or at a party you chat with them anywhere from five minutes to two to three hours. Then you decide if you want to swap numbers so you can continue the conversation and set up a date.
Online it’s similar. You either sign into the chat room and chat with someone for a while before deciding whether to meet up in real life, or not, or you send a few PMs back and forth before deciding whether to meet up or not. We always recommend meeting up fairly soon. It’s only too easy to fill in the gaps when chatting to someone and make up who they are. This leads to an image that isn’t necessarily true to reality. They might be better than you imagine, but the confusion when you first meet them might lead to you not recognizing this and dismissing them as unattractive.
This is also why we recommend to keep the first meeting short - a coffee or a drink - so as to leave room for doubt. A second date is when you truly find out if there is real life chemistry or not.
As there are so many singles online you can look forward to a lot of flirting, dating and having fun. That’s the difference from a bar in Doncaster - there are a lot more singles to choose from!
