Technology Has Made Us All So Busy – How Do You Find Someone Special?

Not so many years ago, we all had a lot of time on our hands. Most work hours enabled a 9 – 5 situation which gave us plenty of time to mingle and meet people.

It was nothing to head over to the bar after work and meet up with friends or arrange a gathering at your home. Friendly chats in line at the grocery store could lead to an exchange of numbers and chatter on the bus with a regular rider might wind up with a date or two.

Now, however, our work hours are extended and iphones and blackberries are attached to our arms. We often miss that special someone between tweets and online activities. Not to mention the lack of safety in dating a stranger.

That’s where dating websites make connecting a little simpler. I know a few people who have used them on numerous occasions. To begin with, I think we were all a little dubious.

Demands on our time had people reaching out and finding that if they were honest on the forms, these Dating Agencies could truly help. Growth, as in all social media, led to agencies all over the world such as the Dating Agency in the UK, Australia, Ireland and South Africa.

Agencies everywhere are helping and encouraging people. You don’t have to be a young suburban to reach out either. There are sights like the Dating Agency that offer services for the over 40 crowd as well.

Life is meant to be shared. You don’t have to accept all offers that come your way and your information is kept confidential. Don’t worry if you don’t find that perfect fit the very first time. Online dating is a resource, a tool to help you make those connections you don’t have time to persue on your own.

  1. I met my hubby when I was 19, so I had no need. I am not sure if I would have used a dating service as I got older or not. I do, however, know a few couples that met this way and are very happy.

    Not dating related, but a I have a few very close girlfriends that I met online through a moms group and we see each other regularly

  2. My husband and I have known eachother since highschool so I haven’t ventured into the world of online dating websites but I have friends who have. Some of their relationships have worked and some not, just like when meeting someone or being set up in a non-online evironment. I think it’s worth a try to meet that special person!

  3. I know lots of people who have met online. I think it is possibly a more true connection because you didn’t just bond over a beer

  4. I’ve actually never experience the regular dating after work thing. My husband and met online (although not a dating site) and that was it. I never even had a real job. Went right to my family.
