Online Dating Services And Myspace

By Tiffany Hepburn

If you have ever browsed some of the more popular websites, such as Myspace or Facebook, then you have experienced a new form of dating services. However, they are not earmarked as a dating service.

In fact, the conceptualization of the websites was to bring more people together to share information, writing and videos. It was a site intended for people to upload pictures and write about a variety of topics. How then, did an essentially public forum turn into a site used primarily for dating?

The answer to this question is in the sheer volume of people who use Myspace and Facebook. Millions of users come into contact with each other on a daily basis. Invariably, these contacts may yield available individuals looking for a date.

The entire site has become one big, free online dating hub, but unfortunately there are some serious drawbacks to using a Myspace or Facebook account as a dating medium.

Screening Services And Questionnaires

Dating services use different types of screening services and questionnaires before a person searches or places personal ads. This, for some websites, is a precaution to ensure that married individuals looking for an affair are not listed as single.

Adult dating personals, on websites such as Adult Friend Finder, do not worry about this step as they feel it is up to each individual to make the decision on the status of the person they are seeking.

Personality Tests

Other dating websites use personality tests in order to narrow down the list of available individuals looking for a date. The number of people using Myspace can seem overwhelming if you are trying to search for a person with similar interests, who is also single.

You might want to consider this factor before electing for the free service versus having to pay for a membership.

The benefit of using Myspace as a dating service declines when no one can view your information or photographs. Alternatively, this can work to your advantage if the relationship did not turn out well and you wish to no longer allow them to view your webpage. Admittedly, the same can be done with other dating services by blocking a particular member.

Internet Dating

Dating, in itself, is a wild world filled with unusual meetings. Internet dating through websites with personal profiles for review, was not originally intended as a dating forum for everyone. If Myspace or Facebook brings you in touch with the man or woman of your dreams, then the how’s or where’s of meeting do not matter.

Love will find a way, no matter where a person is located or what website or dating services has been chosen, on which to post their personal information.
