Blind Date vs Online Date - A Comparison

By Janine Jensenoris

Blind dates are usually arranged by well meaning friends who are trying to tie you up with someone they think you have common interests. The risk of failure is quite high.

Online dating involves reading a dating profile on a dating website, chatting on a chat channel, exchanging emails, talking on the phone.

During all these exchanges you can get a feeling if this guy shares with you similar likes and dislikes and if you are going to get on really well with each other.

The chance of success is quite high cause you know a lot about the guy before you meet him on a face to face date.

Consider this as an example. Your friend has decided that you need help with your social life so she sets you up with a blind date. A friend of a friend of a friend.

You, foolishly, accept. Now there you are. It’s less than one hour since you were introduced. You are sitting in a Thai restaurant and you hate Thai food.

Dull As Dishwater

The entrée has not yet been served. His idea of enlightened conversation is who will be in the final four and you aren’t into sports on TV.

He knows the weekly TV schedule verbatim. You haven’t sat through a movie in months because you run marathons and volunteer at the local food bank.

He says, “Volunteering is a waste of time because you can’t help ‘those people’ anyway.” You look at your watch; see that it’s only been 10 minutes since you last looked at it the last time and wonder how long it is before you can gracefully remove yourself from the situation. Been there?

A New Beginning With Online Dating

Now imagine a date with someone you met through internet dating and have been chatting online and exchanging emails with for quite some time.

First, you don’t need to be introduced. You already know this man. You are sitting in an Italian restaurant enjoying a delightful meal because you both know that the other’s favorite meal is Italian.

You Already Know This Man

The conversation flows easily as you discuss common interests. He runs marathons and loves history just like you do. You happily discuss the volunteer work that each of you is involved in.

You look at your watch and discover that you have already been here for three hours, where has the time gone?

Sharing Your Tastes And Interests

There is a big difference between a well-intentioned friend “setting you up” and choosing a man for yourself who shares your interests and tastes, isn’t there?

Now which one would you rather have?

Online dating gives you the chance to prepare before you meet the guy. You can read and review the dating profiles on a dating website, you can chat on a chat channel and exchange emails.

Listen To His Voice On The Phone

Things get better when you can hear each others voice on the phone. From the voice you can tell if the guy is genuine and he is really interested.

With a blind date, it is like the blind leading the blind. You do not anything about the guy, apart from what your well-meaning friend has told you, and you have never met him. The risk of wasting your time, is very high.

So online dating wins, hands down.

It is a no contest.
