Portuguese singles like singles everywhere, turn to online dating more and more. Why? It’s convenient, it costs very little and you meet a lot more singles than at your local bar.
Have a think about it: when you go to a BIG bar there might be 200 singles if you are lucky. Half of them male, half female. Out of those you might be attracted to ten.
Online you find thousands of singles in one place. You aren’t dependent on people living in your neighbourhood, or hanging out with your friends to be able to meet them.
Portuguese online dating sites are convenient because there are more singles in one place and you can reach out to people you wouldn’t normally meet. And it’s easy - you don’t have to go out every single night in the hope of meeting someone. All you have to do is browse profiles to find someone who catches your eye.
Portuguese personals were those little ads in newspapers that read something like “young male who can cook, looking for charming woman who likes dogs.” Cheesy, much? And you didn’t really find out anything about the person posting the ad.
Online dating changed all that and as a result became a lot more popular than personals. About 30% of people meet their partner through online dating these days. And many more meet dates for fun and flirting.
On a Portuguese online dating site you create a profile - much like on any social network. You tick some boxes to show what your interests are and what you are looking for from a date/flirt. You have space to describe yourself (read: space to impress) and you can upload a couple of different pictures of yourself. It makes it a lot more fun and personal than the personals. And did we mention - less cheesy?!
Online dating is simply a fun way to meet likeminded singles for flirting, dating and finding love.
Ready to start your online dating journey on a Portuguese dating site? Great! Here are some tips for how to best get yourself a Portuguese date.
To get someone’s attention online is simple: you send them a great message and they check out your equally great profile and write you back.
A great message is personal; show you’ve read their profile by telling them something you like about it. Maybe share that you have a similar interest. Tell them you’d like to find out more.
You can flirt, but don’t come on too strong - that’s aking to coming up and grabbing someone’s behind in a bar. Be charming and polite - the intense flirting will gradually build up. Let it. Tension is good - moves the plot forward!
Once you’ve found a date through your choice of Portuguese dating site (Flirt.com that is!) you meet them somewhere relaxed for a first date. Maybe grab a coffee, tea, drink, or similar. Not dinner or something else that takes a lot of time. You don’t know if you like them yet. Save the romance for the second date.
It’s simple to get singles’ attention in Portugal. Dating has never been easier.
