The Lure of Online Dating

If you had asked the average American guy or girl ten years ago what is one of the best ways to meet up with other singles of the opposite sex, chances are that they would have said something like a singles’ bar. Ask that same question now and most cite a online dating website as their main source from which they select dates.

What’s interesting about this is that almost ten years ago there was a very big stigma attached to online dating. Popular opinion held that online dating was for those desperate and unattractive rejects for which the real physical world was just too painful.

Fast forward to the present and it seems that everyone is online these days. For example, it’s not uncommon for many among the web savvy to receive friend requests from a parent, even a grandmother. The reasons for these changed attitudes and behaviors have many roots, some which will not be discuss in this article.

In fact, the latest online dating research shows that over ninety two million Americans described themselves as being singles in the United States. When this data is analyzed to see how Americans go about finding a potential date, studies show that many singles are increasingly finding each other by taking refuge in the world of online dating sites. Conducting a search using the popular search engine Google for instance, brings up more than fifty-nine million results. Indexed in those results are countless dating sites that have sprung up and ready to cater to the enormous market of singles-both the lustful and the lonely. The wide selection of ordinary contenders comes in many ethnicities and countless cultures, flavors and physical selections, as well. Some are free while others cost well into the hundreds of dollars.

Bucking the no frills trend of the current crop of dating websites, some free dating sites are taking advantage of the online dating rush by trying to outdo paid sites. They are also trying to distinguish themselves from other dating websites by offering certain features that are usually reserved for paying sites. The latest stats and data projections also tend to indicate a twiddling away of paid market share and rising figures for non-paid sites. This data also appears to show that singles are gravitating towards sites with better results and abandoning those sites that try to charm them with nothing but bells and whistles.

Some websites are capitalizing on the new wave of technologies in an effort to further differentiate themselves from their counterparts. Many have rolled out cool Avatars, and added other recent tech to make live chat even more functional. This is important for two reasons. First, young women normally do well in a chat room environment. They comprise the majority of the market, and that market share isn’t going anywhere but up.

Second, traditionally non-savvy singles are also joining the ranks of free online dating sites, and in terms of enterprise demand, they come in a close second. According to the latest census, over four-fifths of all adults aged 25 and older had completed at least high school, and one in four adults held a bachelor’s degree or higher. What that means is that singles are definitely becoming more internet savvy in order to be able to navigate themselves into the dating game.

Beyond the numbers of web users, free online dating trends and demographics, online dating has proven to be a very cost effective way of meeting new people. Singles have taken notice of their fiscal reality, and the savings of free memberships compared to gambling a hundred bucks on drinks alone are just very appealing.

Finally, there is the commitment factor. Many young singles that have their eyes towards settling down have proven to be a very loyal and dedicated bunch in trying to locate a serious partner. They no longer see themselves as having the luxury of time to experiment with a wide range of personality types. Settling down is the one key factor for them, and it remains a fixed goal from the moment they graduate from college.

To that end, dating sites have become very attractive and a cost affective option. The numbers of singles gravitating towards them demonstrates it. Online dating is no longer the sole venue of the geeky and dorky crowd because the hip crowd has joined dating sites in droves.

Singles have discovered that choosing online dating can have many benefits including saving time and money. The main issue singles face when meeting someone randomly in the physical world is the issue of not knowing who they are meeting, and deciding whether or not to invest precious time getting to know that other person. When meeting someone at a bar or dance club there is always that risk that the person you have invested a whole night on does not meet your standards for various reasons, but you won’t know that until you get to chatting.

Meeting other singles always will come with risk, the one risk that online dating pretty much eliminates is the information factor. Online dating cuts away with that because all the information that you need is right on the prospect’s profile thereby eliminating the guess work. This one factor in itself makes online dating highly irresistible to busy singles and singles that like to cut to the chase.

Set Up Your Date From Home Thanks to Online Dating Services

Looking for partners? Internet could be an answer. Free online dating services not only provide the choice of partner but it also keeps you away from the fear of consequences by unwanted people. We have the choice to reject people whom we think we cannot accommodate anymore as friends. It becomes much easier to evaluate people in free online dating site as compared to do the same offline. These are few reasons due to which millions of people worldwide are choosing free online dating services.

There are some do’s and don’ts one should follow while getting into free online dating services. It is not important for people who already have been doing this but this is definitely going to help starters. Online dating can work well if planned and implemented. Even good luck will follow the planning and will help in getting success in these kind of relationships.

Screen Name

Perfect screen will help in getting visitors to you. Many a times screen names based on physical appearance attracts visitors. It enables the user to identify you easily when the name is short and is based on physical appearance. For example Petite 007, it appears as if you are of small built but you definitely must be filled with lot of thrill and adventure. On the contrary names should not be provocative as it might not work well and they might deviate from such people. One can also choose a name which is not related to physical appearance and that shows more privacy.

Never try to get too personal

Online chatting should be taken in a very casual manner. One should be talking more about goals, ambitions, interests, home or studies. It should always be neutral topics. If a person is asking too many personal questions then one should realize that he is not the right person to get associated with. Neutral conversations always go to a second step so try to be as general as you can.

Choose wisely

Never try to send emails after getting into free online dating sites. Always wait for the person of your interest and then try to contact them. Similar interests help in maintaining a good relationship.

Wait and Watch

It is more of a game when we say wait and watch. Always make your partner realize the importance of busy lifestyle and you have not been sitting in front of the computer the whole day. Do not send email immediately after the first one; always wait for two -three days for the response. Do not answer on Friday’s or weekends and let your partner wait for it.

No repeated emails

Do not send emails repetitively. If your date does not answer to your emails then probably he is not interested. Just send a second mail but after that you need to stop and move on. It is time to move on to others when you do not get response after two consecutive emails.

The best part of free online dating services is, all is free and you have not looked into your pocket and have got connected to so many people around the world.

Sex Advice – Improve Your Sex Life Like an Olympic Athlete

Sex is not always a sport and, although sex games and sex positions abound, it should never be a competition. However, if you want to become a gold medalist in bed, you can’t expect to sit back and hope that the best sex of your life descends on you by magic or is somehow passed down through the genes of your ancestors. You have to train.

Superstar coaches of practically every sport on the planet train their aspiring athletes with the same basic principle. No matter what the sport, competition, or activity, the best training always consists of two essential parts: mental and physical. Training must be 50% mental and 50% physical.

The physical 50% is the kind everyone who has ever watched a sports movie is all too familiar with. In sports, it involves those ten-mile hikes through the mud in the rain at 5 AM. It involves charging through barriers made of foam, stepping through gauntlets made of tires, and passing the ball back and forth until it becomes second nature.

In the arena of adult sex, the physical 50% means that you need to get as much practice as you possibly can. Know your own body like… the back of your hand. Get to know the body or bodies of your spouse, partner, or friends with benefits until you can trace them in your sleep. Don’t expect to have mind-blowing sex every time right away. Expect only to practice.

But just like in any sport, the physical 50% is not enough.

For athletes, the mental 50% involves both watching other professionals perform the right way the actions they hope to excel at and also playing back the tapes of their own performances in order to spot their own weak areas. The mental 50% is all about studying, immersing their minds in the sport, activity, or action so much so that when they get on the field, their bodies automatically follow suit.

In sex, the mental 50% can be accomplished in a number of ways.

Reading is one of the easiest ways to train your mind in the art of sex. Sex advice is readily available in large and free quantities online, so find a sex blog or sex advice portal that you love and visit it often.

Playing the tapes back is another great way to get in the mental 50%, so don’t be ashamed to find some tasteful erotica and take notes. If your partners or friends with benefits are adventurous enough, you may find it equal parts enjoyable and educational to film yourselves in various states of undress performing various sex positions and sexual acts. When you watch yourselves later, you can highlight the things you did that really made your partner scream as well as make a mental note of the things they did that sent shivers through your spine.

As you sculpt your body and your mind for the best sex of your life, don’t forget what sex is essentially all about – having fun and connecting with your partner. In sex and sports alike, perfection is never guaranteed, only improvement.

Casual Adult Dating – Surfing The Web For Erotic Fun

Times have changed and people are getting more comfortable with what they want and who they are. In the past casual adult dating was almost unheard of. It was a taboo topic that nobody spoke about or dared to mention. Those who were perceived to be engaging in it were frowned upon by society. Obviously, not anymore.

It is common to find sites that are specifically dedicated to those who are looking for some fun. Strictly fun, nothing long-term or serious. These are not for those who want to have long-term relationships. They are simply for the free spirits whose only interest is to have some casual sex or fulfill their own fantasies. In fact, to say that casual adult dating online is popular would be an understatement.

This is a phenomenon that has caught on incredibly fast and is attracting huge volumes of new people signing up to create profiles all in a bid to get a sex partner. This is in itself has brought about a challenge to the domain owners. They have been too successful to the point of attracting even those who are out to play jokes on others.

Moreover, just like anything else with the s-word in it, casual adult dating has also attracted hordes of curiosity seekers. As a result, some form of payment was introduced so as to actually get those who are serious and separate them from they that are simply curious. This therefore means that to have any real chance of a meaningful encounter one has to join the paid up ranks.

By doing so, you insulate yourself from fraudsters and have access to thousands of like-minded souls. The paid up ranks offer much more features than the free usually promotional area. Here you will be able to send and receive messages from potential mates and even enjoy more interactive chat sessions.

You can even post a video with your profile or chat live with potential adult partners. Casual adult dating is about loosening up and having fun.

Apart from this, only members who are in this paid site will be able to view your profile. This protects you from being exposed to persons or situations that you have no interest in. There are no annoying advertisements bombarding you left, right and center. You are only exposed to what interests you.

This is a new game and there are rules that you should observe. This is to protect yourself as you engage in this world of casual sex. As much as you are out to have fun, it is also important to be smart and safe while at it.

The golden rule is to approach the whole thing with a mentality of having fun and nothing more. As it is, anything that happens here is just like the name, casual. There is no pressure to present yourself in a certain way as all those you meet in such forums have already thrown their hats in the ring. It is just a matter of picking out what interests you.

Adult Related Content – Fuel For Spyware And Spam

Porn is not good for the human psyche, it becomes an addiction just like any other addictive substance. Whether you believe porn is immoral or not, is beside the point, it remains a fact and it is no good for your computer either. But lets forget about the adults for a while and think about our children. In homes where everyone does not have his or her own computer, is a family computer, used by each member of the family. If mom or dad surfs porn websites, do you think it will remain for the eyes of mom and dad only? Unfortunately no. It is not only mom or dad who gets hooked on porn, the family computer gets hooked as well, hooked by spyware. These websites make sure you come back for more by constantly throwing offensive pop-up advertisements in your face while browsing the Web or simply by working on your computer while being connected to the Internet. The spyware does not know and does not care who is in front of the computer screen, it is only the ad that counts.

A while ago I worked with a HijackThis log from someone struggling with annoying website redirects and Google warning him about being infected with spyware. I replied with the disinfection instructions, but also warned him about the adult related software that caused the infections. I never received any response from him, he was probably not prepared to get rid of his virtual desktop girlfriend. I guess he must love her very much for being willing to sacrifice his own online security, privacy and the freedom to browse without being redirected to websites he does not want to visit. Not my idea of an ideal relationship. The best of all is that this person also had Parental Control Software installed on his computer. This is either a naughty teenager bypassing the content filters installed by his parents, or even worse, a father who believes the content filters will prevent his children from being exposed by the filthy software installed on the computer. Parental content filters and control software are designed for Internet adult content filtering, like offensive images, websites, e-mails and text, not spyware or adult related software already installed and allowed to run on your computer. Using parental monitoring software (which does not block content) may help you monitor the activities of your children online, but it does not prevent them from being exposed to adult content in the first place. Anyway, what does it help to monitor your children if you can’t set them a better example yourself?

With all the free e-mail services available today, everyone with Internet access have their own e-mail account, even your children. Some spyware programs are also e-mail address harvesters. When a child uses the same computer a parent or older family member use for browsing porn sites, chances are good that this poor child will fall victim to endless offensive, disgusting and explicit adult related e-mails. Everyone who uses the infected computer is at risk. If the spyware is a keylogger, the e-mail address is stolen the moment you type your e-mail address into a web form, this can be the page where you log into your e-mail account or when you sign up for a newsletter or web service. The most common method used by spyware is the extraction of e-mail addresses from the e-mail accounts set up with e-mail clients like MS Outlook, Outlook Express or Thunderbird. The spyware may even pull all the addresses from your address book and you may end up becoming a distributor of spam without even knowing it. I don’t think your friends and family will be chuffed if they receive porn spam because of your inability to control yourself. If you continue to browse porn websites with the same computer used by your children for e-mail and other Internet activities, don’t be surprised if they suddenly ask you out of the blue about Viagra or genital enlargement patches.

When your e-mail address lands on a spammer’s list, you are in a catch-22 situation. It is futile to try and get your e-mail address removed from this list. By the time you succeed in getting your e-mail address removed, which is in any case unlikely to happen, your e-mail address will be distributed among many other spammers. Once a spammer has your e-mail address, it is an open channel for him to send you absolutely anything under the sun and no spammer is ethical, they don’t mind how many children they pollute with porn spam, as long as someone reads their e-mails, they are happy.

Top Brand Professional Automotive Tools Reviewed – Know Your Budget

The tool market is well serviced in terms of brands, design, quality and price. The key consideration is to evaluate your needs. For example, it is pointless buying a laptop capable driving sophisticated 3G games when really all that is required from the unit is basic desktop and internet work. This kind of example also applies to buying tools. For instance, why waste one’s budget on buying the most expensive tools when their application is for occasional hobby type tasks.

Lets start with an overview comparison. It is widely agreed that the best quality and designed tools are manufactured by the Snap-on company. This brand of tools is designed for the professional market. No tool brand is perfect and infallible to failure. However, the Snap-on lifetime warranty means that when a tool breaks, it is replaced or repaired by the service representatives. Snap-on tools can be bought from their distribution trucks and vans that visit automotive workshops. Alternatively, their online catalog allows purchasing via the internet. Second-hand and recycled Snap-on tools are also eagerly traded through websites like eBay and eBay Partner sites.

As noted above, Snap-on automotive tools are at the upper price range. However, there is no shortage of professional grade tool brands at price points below that of the Snap-on brand. For example the brands: Matco, MAC and Cornwell are equally respected in the professional automotive sector. Matco, MAC and Cornwell off a range of professional tools that deliver quality and reliability while carrying sound lifetime warranties and professional after sales service. And are less expensive than the Snap-on brand for the budget minded professional automotive technician. The availability of these brands for sale is similar to Snap-on tools. Trucks visit and distribute tools at automotive workshops. Also, online catalogs and auction type websites offer buy opportunities.

For those budget sensitive buyers, the next set of tool brands is SK and Craftsman. The manufacturing quality of these brands meet USA standards and carry similar lifetime warranties like those brands mentioned above. So, for the semi-professional or hobbyist application these tool brands are an ideal choice. Some may argue that the SK brand, although not as popular, is a little superior to the Craftsman brand. But this opinion is subjective. Craftsmanship and SK brand tools are a more accessible to the buying market. For example, Craftsmanship brand tools are stocked at Sears stores, while the SK brand is found in automotive parts stores and outlets.

In summary, if price is no restraint, then tools from the Snap-on range are considered to be the best quality. Where quality and service is still a priority, then brands such as: matco, MAC and Cornwell offer offer quality profession lines of tools as less expensive price points. Finally, the brands SK and Craftsmanship serve the semi-professional market with tools that are not subject to the high demands of daily professional usage. The advice for any buyer is assess the task application of the tool, and allocate your budget to buy the right tool for the right job.
