Date Match

Date MatchFor most single people, time is a valuable thing. When a busy and stressful daily life captures you, you won't have time to go out to bars or parties and meet new people. Online dating saves your time because it acts as a screen before you even date someone. When you meet a person in a club, party or social gatherings, the first thing that attracts you to someone includes the physical attributes.

Though most people meet their dates at, in their daily life, or are introduced through friends or relatives, commercial dating agencies emerged strongly, but discreetly, in the Western world after World War II, mostly catering for the 25-44 age group. Newspaper and magazine personal ads also became common.

In the last five years, mate-finding and courtship have seen changes due to online dating services. Telecommunications and computer technologies have developed rapidly since around 1995, allowing daters the use of home telephones with answering machines – mobile phones – and web-based systems to find prospective partners. "Pre-dates" can take place by telephone or online via instant messaging, e-mail, or even video communication. A disadvantage is that, with no initial personal interview by a traditional dating agency head, Internet daters are free to exaggerate or lie about their characteristics.
