Perhaps you've noticed but online dating suddenly doesn't seem like the rather
solitary excercise it once was.
No more solitary dating
If you were dating online back in say 2002, on a typical online dating site
you'd be faced with a wall of thousands of faces staring back at you and you'd
have to somehow build an individual relationship with those that caught your
fancy. But who could you trust? It wasn't long before you wised up to the fact
that not everybody is playing the same dating game. Many of those guys out there
were simply players, while often women were too wary and untrusting to form a
Social dating is here and it's a lot more fun!
Well those days are beginning to be numbered, because in today's social world,
social dating is the coming thing. Social dating means a community of single
people who are prepared to build friendships online as well as concentrate on
just dating. Because it's easier to build trust
with somebody who has been introduced to you by a trusted friend.
Social dating is more fun!
Of course the other reason we do social dating is because it's so much more FUN
than traditional online dating or those rather old-fashioned dating agencies
that you might remember from the 70's.
With social dating sites, you would expect to find features that allow you to
build friendships with people of both sexes, not just your "target" sex. This is
encouraged and doesn't mean you've changed your sexuality!
Features would include online dating forums, the ability to link to other
members with friendship links, online dating chat, and the ability to vote for
other members as trustworthy. The more known you become in the social dating
community, the easier it is to find a date, because you will have the immediate
trust of other members. It's much more like reality where we tend to meet
potential dates through friends.
Social dating is here
At Midsummer's Eve you'll be pleased to know we're adopting the social dating
philosophy - because it has proved so successful. You'll find our new "add to
friends" feature handy to express friendship for other members, and also to see
who is friends with who, and is most established in our dating community. This
will allow you to see who has the trust of other members, enabling you to make
better decisions on who to contact (and indeed who to avoid).
If you have any more suggestions on how we should pursue the social dating
philosophy, why not contact us?
