Online dating has become the way of the world when it comes to finding love in a non-conventional way and with the increase of dating websites, it’s no surprise that so many people participate in this new romance trend nowadays. Though online dating has become the new norm, it really isn’t for everyone. Here are 14 signs that the online route just isn’t quite right for you.
According to the online dating site SeekingArrangement.com, Atlanta is THE place to be if Sugar Daddies are your thing. That city has unseated San Franciso to become this year’s “Sugar Daddy Capital of America”!
Coming in at number two is Scottsdale, AZ and San Francisco falls to number three.
SeekingArrangement’s ranking is based on the ratio of Sugar Daddies to adult men in a given location. For Atlanta, that comes to 5.98 Sugar Daddies to every 1,000 men.
The site also has some other stats about Sugar Daddies for you to gnaw on: most Sugar Daddies are either professionals (21 percent) or entrepreneurs (26 percent), a third are married, and four percent are retired (if you like an older gentleman).
“The term ‘Sugar Daddy’ is simply not a moniker reserved for the ‘one percent’. Rather, it is a lifestyle embodied by single men who have a genuine, vested interest in adding value to their partners’ lives,” said Brandon Wade, the site’s founder and CEO in a press statement. “Not only is the face of the modern Sugar Daddy changing, but his needs are as well,” he added.
We’ve got a portion of an infographic from the site’s study above, which compares this year with 2007, the year SeekingArrangement.com launched. Click here for a little more info. Any thoughts on the Sugar Daddy situation? We’d definitely love to hear them.
Online dating has become one of the most popular ways of finding love in today’s world. No matter if you’re using a dating website, Facebook, or some other type of social network, you definitely aren’t alone in trying to find a boyfriend. One of the drawbacks of online dating is the fact that, at least temporarily, there’s no physicality to the relationship. If a guy kisses you or tries to hold your hand in person, it’s obvious that he likes you. But online, it can be a bit tougher to really know if a guy is genuinely that interested. Here are 14 ways to know if an online prospect likes you or not.
By now you know the obvious turn-off’s when it comes to online dating: shirtless photos, five pictures of your dog, leaving half of your profile empty and creating usernames that make you sound like the star of an adult film. But, like in real, non-cyber life, women are also analyzing you far more than you imagined in your online profile. Here’s what they look for.
Online dating has taken the relationship world by storm and nowadays it’s rare that you’ll find someone who hasn’t tried it at least once. With so many social media and online dating websites available today, it’s become commonplace for someone to try e-dating. If you’ve decided to take a shot at online dating, there are definitely some things you’ll want to know so that you can avoid an outright dating disaster. Since online dating can be tricky, here are 14 ways to avoid an online dating disaster.

No matter what you are looking to do there is generally an app that can assist you. And more and more, this is applying to your love life.
A new app has been released in major markets called “Let’s Date” that takes online dating to the next level. Users sync their Facebook profile, answer a few questions to create a dating card, and then you’re all set up to find a date. You can start browsing other dating cards, make date requests, and receive date requests from others who’ve signed up for the app. If you’re not interested just hit “No Thanks” to let him down easy. If you are interested hit “Let’s Date,” and you can chat with each other directly.
So far the app has four out of five stars at the iPhone App Store and according to The Washington Post, the Los Angeles-based company that created the app, Science Inc, has set up over 25,000 people on dates. Oh, and did I mention that the app was free!
So now, not only can you get directions and check your account balance using the apps on your phone, you can also find your next date for the weekend.
When online dating first started it was very taboo. However now Match.com claims that one in five relationships start online. So maybe app dating will become the next most popular way to find love. Or will it be that the more impersonal your initial interaction, the more frogs you will have to kiss to find your prince?
I’m sure that soon other companies will jump on board to follow this idea and there will be a lot more app options to find your next boo thang right from your mobile phone.
