Finding Love Online with Match.com and Other Methods

Today, there are a number of different ways you can meet people on the Internet. In fact, your odds of finding somebody special online are probably better than the odds of meeting such a person in your daily life. This is different from the situation we had 10 years ago, when your only option for finding love online was to use a dating site. Here are a few different ways you can meet people online:


1) Online Games.
Years ago, I read a news story that a married couple first met on the online game, World of Warcraft. At the time, the story was so unusual that it was newsworthy. However, nowadays, such stories are much more common. The good thing about meeting someone through an online game is that you already share one hobby in common, and there's a good chance your personalities may mesh. You can meet someone compatible playing just about any game, from massively online multiplayer games to casino games.

2) Social Media.
Sites like Facebook can also be a great place to meet people. In fact, there are several services and apps out there that turn Facebook into a dating site and help you find a date. This is a bit of a new and untested method, but it's worth giving it a shot if you're a fan of social media.

3) Online Dating Sites.
The last method is the most tried and tested method, which is to simply use a popular dating site such as Match.com or Eharmony. Most of the time, I believe using a paid dating site like Match.com is the best options as opposed to using a free dating site, which tends to be unreliable in my opinion. If you are hesitant to put down money for a subscription, you can always use a special Match.com promotion for a 3-day free trial.

As the online world continues to develop, there will likely be additional ways to meet people online. But for the time being, I believe the above ways are the best methods for single people to find each other on the Internet.
