Andy Charlson writes: Let's be honest. Relationships can be one of the most expensive social activities we indulge in. On a quest to find the ideal partner, we might go through any number of what could be termed ‘dummy runs' with people who ultimately turned out to be unsuitable candidates. Then there is the actual process of dating itself. No matter how attractive we are to a significant other, taking them out on a date night can leave a serious dent in any wallet. Unfortunately, the more you want to impress a new partner by taking them to the more exclusive restaurants or expensive nightclubs, the greater the cost. In these uncertain economic times, it does no harm to consider areas where you can draw those horns in. This is where Internet dating can be a fantastic resource for controlling your budget.


Defining online dating

So what are we talking about when we describe Internet dating sites? First of all, this is a very generic heading for the subject. When we are talking about matchmaking in an online environment, the scope for the websites involved as vast. There are niche websites catering for all sorts of personal interests, from same-sex relationships to cougar romance. Some sites are geared towards people who are merely looking for a quickflirt or a casual encounter, while others are strictly aimed at people who are seeking longer-term partnerships.

Convenience

In terms of being a money-saving device, dating websites are such a convenient way of getting to know a diverse range of individuals. For the most part, the sites offer free membership and this is readily achieved by completing a straightforward application form online. Once you are on-board, you are given free reign to browse through the profiles of existing site members.

This is so different from the equivalent in the offline world, where you are sometimes compelled to rush into relationships based on the scant evidence you are actually completely compatible with this person. Many trusts are arranged in alcohol-fuelled settings like nightclubs or trendy bars, where couplings can be transient – and costly. With online dating, you can take your time getting to know the person at the other end of your communications. This is not to sound overly frugal or unromantic when it comes to embracing this particular medium. It is merely a case of being practical. Because you're given the opportunity to take as long as you wish getting to know a prospective partner, your decisions can be fine-tuned.

Meeting offline

When it comes to actually arranging somewhere to take your relationship offline, another advantage online dating has over the more traditional form of dating is the primary motive for the site visitors is not to impress the other person. Because you have met in a relaxed online environment and spent a degree of time getting to know each other, you are liable to have a far better idea of the type of place your new partner would appreciate. So you can resist the urge to splash out on some five-star restaurant by coming to a mutual agreement.

Precision matchmaking

Finally, where dating sites are undoubtedly the most economical method of arranging relationships is in the precise way they are able to match individuals with kindred spirits. If you spend some time developing a strong sense of chemistry in an online environment, there is far more likelihood of you really clicking. In a virtual setting, it is quite possible to generate a strong and committed relationship.

Free of the time wasting and game playing that often accompanies get-togethers in more traditional settings, you can arrange to meet up with your new partner where there will be every likelihood you can continue stoking a genuine connection. So rather than continually having to put up with partnerships that always seem to run their course, online dating will ensure you are perfectly equipped to enjoy a lasting relationship.
