Ever wonder about the members of the different top rated online dating sites? Curious about their visitor demographics? Check out our latest research study, entitled the Demographics of Online Dating for some eye-opening information about the membership at each of the major online dating sites.
Do you lead an active singles lifestyle? Have you ever wished you could find a partner to share in your favorite activities? Well online personals can be used for more than just finding your next date. Typical dating sites can be used to find a best friend, someone who shares the same hobbies and interests as you and if romance eventually blossoms between you and your new 'friend' what better situation could there be than to fall in love with someone who shares the same passions, likes and dislikes you do!
There are a few things to consider, however, when trying to find an activity partner by using your typical online dating sites. It will help to remember certain key points before beginning your search. Single men and women who post what we call 'Active Singles' personal ads are indeed looking for somebody who has the same hobbies and interests as them and most often these individuals are hoping that these mutual interests will eventually lead to a more long-term relationship. If this is appealing to you then using online personals to find someone like this could be very useful. However, if you are strictly searching for a platonic relationship then using personals to find such a friend may or may not be the right thing for you. If you are responding to an ad, remember to consider what the motives of the man or woman who posted the ad are. You can get a good general idea of what the posters intentions are by reading the ad several times. One rule of thumb is that men who place active personals may be more likely to be looking for someone with whom to become involved romantically while women may be just as happy to find a close friendship just as much as a boyfriend or girlfriend.
So how does it work? Well, sites like Match.com allow the user to enter in a keyword as seen on our search form below. This keyword should obviously be the hobby or interest you would like your potential activity partner to have. By entering your hobby, activity or interest, the search results that are returned will only be from people who have used that keyword directly in their personal profile! Just note that when using our customized form to do this type of targeted-criteria searching, the software will literally be searching through thousands of personal ads so the results take some time to appear.
The benefits of using a form like this should be obvious-instead of spending countless hours reading through dating profiles you can spend more time only viewing ads from other active singles and plan good responses to get yourself noticed.
So find yourself other active singles using our search form above and get out there and enjoy life!
