Even though online dating has become a viable way to get dates and meet up with eligible bachelors, if you only date men online, you are really limiting yourself. There is a big, beautiful world out there filled with amazing and available men. And guess what? They’re looking for a fabulous woman like you!

Yes, if you date men you meet online, you can pretty much guarantee a free dinner every Friday night. It’s easy to communicate with men on the Internet and set up a dinner. Plus, browsing profiles definitely expedites the fact-finding process.

Nevertheless, you must remember that a only small percentage of men ever create online profiles and join dating sites. If you only engage men through cyber dating, you are missing the opportunity to meet men who are out and about too busy living life to be confined to a computer. Where do you find them? The gym, church, singles groups and community events are great places to meet interesting men, and be sure to put all your girlfriends on the lookout for a potential boyfriend for you.

Remember, your girlfriends have guy friends, relatives and co-workers they could set you up with, and the best part is they come with a recommendation from someone you trust.
