In the past 24 hours, I’ve had a glimpse at the dating experiences of two women—one in her 30s, the other in her 40s. While they are at different stages in their lives and are very different people, their dating experiences seemed to amount to the same thing. They both talked about how hard it is for women. They admitted to not really understanding men at all, sometimes. Both expressed a desire to be in relationships bound by some level of commitment, but they aren’t sure how to make it happen. I have no doubt that there are many women who feel the same way and are at the same place in their lives.
What can women do to secure a committed relationship?
Some women are trying online dating services. I’m sure this can’t be surprising. Just research the statistics on the use and history of online dating services. The websites I’ve found place the start date for online dating services in the early 1990s. I’m sure it was considered a unique or odd thing to do back then, but not today. You probably know at least one person who is currently using one of these services.
Can online dating services work?
Forget about the statistics. I’m willing to bet that you know at least one person who has met someone through an online dating service and married them. This must mean it can work. I’m not attesting to how often it works. I’m just saying there’s proof that it can.
Is the online dating experience the same for women and men?
Solsticesisters will explore these questions and more in an upcoming series. We’ll look at online dating from both a male and female point-of-view. .. Watch for it!
