Women Seeking Men and Online Matchmaking Sites

By Charles Hopkins Published 08/31/2011 | Relationships
Its not that women are getting desperate because there is a shortage on men.  Its just that women have become more career-oriented in recent years, hence, they havent had the time to meet men, who could be potential partners, the conventional way.

In fact, men, too, have found it difficult to meet women because they are also so focused on their careers that any form of dating is just not entertained.  It is put in the backburner until it is too late.

So what do you do when youre a loving, caring woman who has so much love to give but no one to give it to?  You give your love life a little nudge and hope for the best.

Online Dating

If you look at online dating sites, you will see theres an option there that says either a man seeking woman or woman seeking man.  Again, this is not a sign of desperation but a sign that youre willing to try anything at least once for the sake of L-O-V-E.  Theres nothing wrong with that.

If youre just joining this kind of dating site, be careful what you put in your profile.  You dont want to sound too eager, but you dont want to fabricate too much that you end up being a totally different person.

Be careful, too, not to put too much information about you especially your contact details.  You dont want to attract unwanted attention or, worse, stalkers!  There is a right time and place for exchanging personal info, and online dating sites are not one of them.

Make a Connection

The internet literally can connect you to the one man who can possibly make you laugh and cry at the same time.  As in online dating sites, your goal here should be clear.  Do not make it your panacea for love.  Online dating sites are fun places you can meet a lot of men and just have the time of your life.

While it is true that there have been successful connections made via the internet, not everyone can be so lucky, so practice caution, too.  The key here is to have as many options as you can without wearing your heart out on your sleeve.

Unfortunately, some women have the tendency to picture the happily-ever-after at the first meeting, which almost always does not happen, so dont plan the wedding, yet.

While it is also true that there is absolutely nothing wrong in todays modern world, for a woman to seek out a man, there should be a line women shouldnt cross.  That line where you stop being the chasee and become the chaser.  Men, after all, still love the chase.  Its part of the courtship ritual that never fails to put excitement in the relationship, so dont forfeit your right to enjoy it.

Bottom line is, if your love life is stumped, go ahead and put yourself out there.  Make the first move.  Dont give up easily if you get rejected a few times.
