If you think you're safe on specialized dating sites like ChristianMingle.com, think again.
In the current breed of "old dog" dating sites, there are a lot of users who just "pose and show off" to market themselves, answering questions dishonestly to make themselves seem more desirable. That makes it harder for you to select the singles who are right for you. When examining matches, we should cut out this "noisy data" and focus on the real goal: finding a compatible hook-up, friend, partner, soul mate ... whomever you are searching for. Plus, we should be able to do this quickly, easily and accurately. Don't you agree?

I hated the feeling of those lonely Saturday nights by myself (and Friday nights, and Sunday nights… and…) I had so many doubts that I’d ever even find a good man at all and fears of being alone forever. That maybe, by some weird freak of nature, I was “meant” to be alone. Can you relate?

Along with the excitement of being in a new relationship comes the feelings of butterflies and a well of hope that this person could be The One. Usually these emotions last during the Honeymoon Phase, the first few months of dating where everything seems picture perfect.

Once your feet come back down to earth and you remove your rose colored glasses, you may begin to see things differently.
When setting up an online profile, along with adding a knock-em-dead photo and writing an eye catching bio, part of the process is selecting what it is that you are looking for in a partner. Selections range from age, religion and child preference to hobbies, ethnicity and previous marital status. By selecting certain parameters, the selection pool narrows itself and available options are then shown to you.
One question that comes up often in my practice as a couples therapist is the issue of "falling out of love." You’ve been in love with someone for 6-12 months, maybe longer, and you start to wonder whether this is going to last. Are you going to stay together, settle down, or is it time to move on?

OKCupid was first launched in 2004 and is a free online service that draws in about a million people monthly.
