6 Reasons Why Women Love Online Dating

PEW Research states that 1 in 5 American adults between the ages of 25 and 24 have used online dating at some point. That’s a lot of people! Each year the percentage of people using online dating grows more and more. So, why the popularity? In this post, we’re looking specifically at women. Here are 6 reasons why women love online dating.

1. Control

In the offline world, it can be incredibly difficult to control the situation. If a man approaches a woman at a club, it’s not as easy as hitting a “block” button to make him disappear. Instead, she might find herself searching for some way to get out of the conversation and away from the guy she’s definitely not interested in. Let’s say there’s a man she is interested in but she doesn’t quite know what to say. In the offline world, she can’t just stand there and not say “hello” or reply to his question – no matter how nervous she might be.

Well, friend, here’s how to get out of the situation. It comes down to being upfront, honest and confident in your approach.

Depending on how long you’ve been in communication, and exactly how far your communication has gone, you’ll probably want to write more (or less) in your departing message. Since you met online and have been exchanging messages online (presumably, at least) it’s completely fine to end the relationship in the same fashion. If you’ve met offline or have been talking on the phone, however, your match might be deserving of a slightly more thorough explanation than a quick IM.

How to Deal with an Age Gap in Your Relationship

It has long been socially accepted that men tend to be slightly older than their female partners. Studies have attributed the pairings to a number of causes, one being the idea that women tend to mature quicker than men and therefore, the younger woman/older man combination ends up being pretty on par where maturity is concerned. These days, it’s also become quite common for a female to end up with a younger male. And why shouldn’t she? But, no matter which way you slice it, there’s the potential for a major age gap in your relationship to lead to major issues.

How to Flirt Better in 5 Steps

Be Confident

Go ahead and spark up a conversation! Keep in mind that the age old question remains, especially when chatting online, what have you got to lose?
