Free Dating Site – Evolution

Chat room

Chat rooms were one of the original ancestors of the free dating site. Although many of the chat rooms have now disappeared due to the evolution of better opportunities. they were extremely popular during their heyday. Although the chat rooms spent a lot of time trying to convince people to come to the site, there was little to do once the individual arrived. Even so, the chat rooms were a draw to those who were deemed too young to be there. This meant that many visitors to the site were immature and not capable of any meaningful interaction with those looking for friendships and dating opportunities.

Forum

Forums related to a specific subject were one of the antecedents of a free dating site. Forums tended to evolve around a particular subject. The typical format was that people would post a question of interest and others would provide answers to the question, or would add related comments or links must as in a conversation only online. Sometimes forums had an associated live chat room. The major difficulty with the forum is that often one or two people who monopolize conversations, sometimes by arguing with each other. The forums and chat rooms usually had a way that people could go into a semi-private area and converse without the conversation being part of the general conversations.

Paid Site

The next evolution for many sites, not just for a free dating site is to set up a paid site where individuals could come and join in the excitement and interest generated by being able to meet other singles who are interested in dating. A paid site is supported by a combination of member fees and advertising revenues, as might be expected. The paid sites painted themselves as being elite and attracting only the elite membership that would make the best dating partners. Many individuals were willing to pay the cost to be perceived as one of the best candidates for a date.

Free Site

Following the popularity of the paid sites, smart web masters figured out a way to provide a free dating site for individuals who enjoy the online dating scene. Getting sponsorship for previously paid sites meant that the advertising by companies is already built in rather than requiring it to be paid for by membership fees and sales. The zero cost sites are funded by a combination of advertising and sponsorships so that they can grow in the same way as paid sites grow.

Social Network

A social network site is becoming popular with individuals who are less interest in actual dating. A free dating site focuses mainly on those who want to date, while a social network is more for the purpose of online socializing with others who have like interests. The social sites are structured more like a casual party among friends. Those who enjoy social sites may not have any interest in developing long term relationships with another person as a life partner. They just want to have fun with friends.

International Dating and Meeting Foreign Women- 3 Easy Steps to Massive Success on Your First Date

Everyday a new flock of men takes flight into the world of online dating. A growing number within this flock fly further than most and venture out into the elite world of international dating. If you are part of this rare but expanding breed you will want to have blow-away first dates and initial encounters with the women you meet.

Dating a foreign girl face-to-face is not the same as speaking to her over the Internet. And it’s certainly not anywhere near close to dating girls face-to-face in the U.S., Australia, Canada and parts of Europe.

These 3 easy to use steps below will stack the deck in your favor when it comes to achieving rocking success on your dates with foreign women.

Plan And Budget

Plan ahead what you are going to do, not last minute. Fail to plan and plan to fail. When you have a plan it makes things easier on you and keeps the stress off. Planning lets you have fun and focus on the girl when you are on the date instead of worrying about what you are going to do or if she is enjoying herself.

Before you decide where you will go, make sure you know about her tastes. Look for something she enjoys doing or has never done before but would like to. If you know she is afraid of heights don’t take her Bungee jumping.

If are traveling on a budget take time to get an idea of what the date will cost ahead of time. Before you set your dates call the places you will visit or ask the hotel where you will be staying (call before going) about cost of the activities you enjoy, the food at local restaurants, price of theater tickets, cab fair and guest charges at the hotel. When you know you have the money to pay for what you like and she enjoys on a date it helps you lean back and really have fun.

Indoors or Outdoors

You will impress her most by spending less. Foreign women are really not attracted to lavish spending, loud behavior and show-off attitudes. Despite what popular stories lead many to believe, these women prefer men who are modest and compassionate.

If your first date is indoors, go for class and substance over flash and costly style. Look for quiet intimate settings with a relaxed atmosphere. Avoid loud bars or clubs on a first date. A cup of coffee, glass of wine and light meal are very common first dates in foreign cultures.

If you are going on a outdoors date, try to avoid group tours or group activities for the first date unless she is bringing a chaperon. Go with things built for two like bike rides, nature walks, and picnics. Rent a small private powerboat (with captain) and go snorkeling, do a tour of the main city, zip limning. The Internet is full of free date ideas, just type free date ideas into your favorite search engine and grab a list full of what you most like.

It doesn’t matter where you go, when it comes time for conversation if you want to score the major points a little preparation goes a long way. Make sure you have learned a bit of her language before arriving in her country. It will be fun to practice with the girls you meet. Especially the one’s you should be meeting online as far ahead of your trip as possible.

And be sure to have studied some of the countries history and cultural customs. Most important ask her lots of questions and listen closely. No matter what language is coming out of your mouths, the language of love transcends the voice and screams through the body. Listen, be open, be honest and watch the magic sizzle.
