Single? Why You're Crazy Not To Try Online Dating [EXPERT]
Love

If you still haven't tried online dating, now's the time. Here's why:

1. Over 40 million people in the US are online dating. That is a boat load of single people. Somewhere among them is a good match for you. Just let the sheer volume sink into your noggin. Dating is a numbers game, and this is how you can hit the lottery of love.

2. Online dating is totally mainstream now. Everywhere you turn, you can read about online dating. It is in the Wall Street Journal, Time Magazine, USA Today, The Huffington Post and almost every television network. It is so prevalent in our society, scientists are even studying and reporting on it. That means its not just for lonely hearts and desperate people; it's for anyone looking for love.

3. It doesn't cost an arm and a leg. Match.com is about 100 dollars for six months. What else can you do for that price? Not much. Stay away from sites that don't let you browse first before paying. You might have to fill out a profile to browse, but usually you won't have to pay. Check out how many men they have with your desired criteria, within a 25 to 50 mile radius of your zip code. When you want to start meeting people, you'll have to commit to using the site and pay for membership.

4. You can get started really fast. Write your profile, post a few pictures and usually within 24 hours you will be approved and ready to go. It doesn't need to take much time, unless you are a perfectionist about your profile. My dating advice – post something now and fix it later.

5. Men over 40 and especially over 50 are online. Women dating over 40 complain they cannot find single men. But, I know where they are. They are online. The older men get, the more they are online. In fact, the over 50 demopgraphic of singles is the fastest growing segment. In general, men over 50 tend to be less socially active and they enjoy the "privacy" of being online.

6. Statistically, 20 percent of all relationships and 12 percent of marriages now start online. If you get online now, you can join the millions of happy couples who already found each other this way. Wouldn't you like to be a part of the success story? I know a Justice of the Peace who told me so many of her clients met online that she had to try it herself.

7. It's an adventure. If your life has become steady as she goes, with very little new happenings, then online dating will shake things up. Adventure enriches your soul. Break free from your inhibitions, which limit your chances of finding love, and get started right now.

8. There are no more scammers or crazy people online than anywhere else. Online dating has now become a commonplace. The chances of you meeting "bad men" are no better online, than at a bar or a friend's party. Seriously, this is true. Are there unsavory types online? Maybe a few. But, the vast majority are regular people like you looking for love or companionship.
