So you met your significant other online. You want to boast to the whole world about how amazing she is, except for one little problem. You met the person online.

When asked how you met, your head tilts down and you mutter under your breath, “Oh, we ummm…met through a friend.”

After all, meeting through friends, co-workers or at a bar is the “normal” way to meet, right? Wrong.

These days, online dating is far from something one should be embarrassed about. Quite the contrary. It’s something we could all be proud of.

Let’s take a look at a few reasons why.

1. Online dating is the new normal.

There was once a time when meeting people online was taboo. Making up a fake story was more than understandable, out of fear of being laughed at.

But these days, not so much. With exponentially more people meeting online every year, more people than ever are finding love through online dating sites.

In fact, you would probably be hard-pressed to find one person who is single, over 25 and has not tried online dating at least once.

2. Online dating sites are filled with quality people.

Online dating has come a long way from the days where it was barely a step above putting out a newspaper ad in the singles section.

Online dating sites are filled with every type of person imaginable.

Whether you are looking for a doctor, lawyer, teacher, police officer, model, blue-collared worker or anything in between, tons of quality men and women, whom are attractive as well, can be found online.


“The future is here, and that

future is online dating.”

3. Online dating shows initiative.

I once had a friend who refused to online date, despite the fact he wasn’t meeting any women whatsoever.

His reason was, “Online dating isn’t natural.”

This faulty logic resulted in weekend upon weekend of spending nights alone and wasting money at bars, as opposed to enjoying life and finding happiness.

Online dating shows initiative and that you are proactive about your love life.

This is a great quality for anybody to have and nothing to be embarrassed about.

To top it off, while others around you are lonely, you are the one who can brag about his or her active dating life.

4. Online dating is like shopping for the perfect person.

Are you embarrassed when you buy that brand new car you’ve been dreaming of? No, you’re not.

You enjoy every second of it and are proud. So why should shopping for the perfect person be embarrassing?

If I were to line up 100 men or women in front of you, list all there hobbies and tell you to pick three to go out with, you would choose three in a heartbeat with excitement.

My point is, there is nothing weird about wanting to “shop” for the perfect person. It’s the ultimate enhancement to your life and perfectly natural.

5. Online dating is the future.

Maybe you know someone who sticks their nose up in the air at online dating, clinging to the societal brainwashing of the past that insists we must meet the way those in Hollywood movies meet.

The truth is we officially live in a world that is dominated by technology.

Society moves faster than ever, people are busier than ever and advancements from online dating sites now afford us to date easier than ever.

The future is here, and that future is online dating.

One can easily argue that within the next 20 years, online dating will be the most common way of meeting and no longer just a large percentage.
