Top 10 Best Sites
Looking for a dating site you can trust? Search no more.

As a woman, I totally understand online dating may not seem like the most appealing avenue for meeting “The One.”
What’s romantic about looking at a bunch of profiles and knowing men are doing the same thing on their end to get to you? And how can you even tell if someone is your potential soul mate by looking at him on a screen?
I understand because I pondered those very same questions. I kept thinking, “I’m so not going to meet the love of my life online!”
Nevertheless, after months of a whole lot of not getting asked out or even meeting available men, I finally decided to sign up on a popular dating site for a three-month plan to see how it goes.
I met my husband about six weeks later. Actually, he had seen me in person before and thought about approaching me, but he talked himself out of it, thinking I probably had a boyfriend.
If I hadn’t been online to show I was obviously available and looking, I wouldn’t have met my amazing husband.
Personal experience aside, here are three additional reasons why online dating is awesome for deliberately attracting and meeting your ideal partner.
If you’re looking to increase your chances of meeting that great someone who is available, think about it – where do the most single men sincerely look for a relationship? An online dating site, of course!
More and more I hear from men that they prefer online dating over approaching a woman in person because they know she’s available and looking.
When you put your profile online, you are demonstrating that you are totally ready to meet your soul mate.
“Online dating is a fantastic tool for
deliberately attracting your soul mate.”
Being very clear on what you want beforehand is so important, and what’s great about dating online is being able to screen a potential date’s pertinent information before investing time and energy into the connection.
Where does he live? Is he looking for marriage? Does he have or want kids? What religion, if any, is he?
If you meet casually, you may spend a lot of time flirting, having fun, enjoying the chemistry and getting emotionally invested before asking any of these important questions.
With online dating, you can know if he wants the same basic things and has the same basic values before investing your time, emotions and energy.
Without spending time and energy into it first, he can know if you’re right for him.
Yes, use the prettiest and most current picture you have of yourself, but this is the place to be totally honest (in a positive and lighthearted way, of course) about your desires for a relationship.
If there is something you must have in a relationship, like children, and you’re honest about it, then men who want the same thing will be interested in you.
Your soul mate will be drawn to your desires, your values and who you truly are as you honestly present yourself online.
Personally, I believe online dating is a fantastic tool for deliberately attracting your soul mate and the relationship you truly desire. And though it may not be the most romantic in the beginning, I know I’m very grateful to have signed up when I did.
I hope these three reasons help you feel confident and excited that dating online can work well for you, too!
