Thanksgiving and Hanukkah are quickly approaching, which means the holidays are here; this is a time to be thankful! If you’ve found love online, you’re likely grateful for online dating. If you’re still looking for love, however, here are 10 reasons why you should be thankful for online dating as well.

1. Broadening Your Horizons

Online dating broadens your horizons. It gives you an opportunity to talk to people in all different areas that you wouldn’t have otherwise met. When you join an online dating site, you have access to meet people you wouldn’t normally meet.

2. It’s Easy

Everyone wants dating to be easy. Well, good news! Online dating is easy. Once you upload your profile and pictures to the dating website of your choice, you’re able to browse your potential matches. What could be better than that?

3. Meet Likeminded Singles

When you join an online dating site, you’re meeting people who are in a similar mindset. They want to meet someone wonderful, and they’ve joined an online dating site to find that person.

4. It’s Better Than A Bar

Going to bars and clubs to meet someone isn’t what it used to be. It’s hard to meet someone when you’re out in a social setting looking for them, especially if you’re shy. When you join an online dating site, you can easily meet lots of new people without having to hit the bar scene.

5. Searching Made Easy

Online dating narrows down the options for you. It gives you the ability to search for people in the age range, area, and religion of your choice.

6. Pick Your Pace

Online dating allows you to date at your own pace. You’re able to choose who you message and which messages you respond to. You have the option to go on a date every night until you meet your significant other or only go on one date a month. With online dating, the choice is yours.

7. Get Back Out There

If you’re new to the dating scene, online dating is a great way to get back out there. It’s a way to date with no pressure. There’s no obligation to meet someone if you decide you aren’t interested after chatting online or talking on the phone.

8. It’s So Convenient

Thanks to modern technology, you can meet someone without even leaving your apartment. You’re able to search for your soul mate, email them, and then have a phone conversation with them, all while you’re sitting on your couch in your PJs.

9. The Control Is Yours

With online dating, you have the control. If the person you’re talking to doesn’t meet your standards, you don’t have to go out with them. You have the option of moving forward… or saying sayonara.

10. You Could Meet “The One”

Online dating could help you meet “The One.” Enough said.

  1. 11. Learning how to deal with infinite rejection. Toughens you up like 50 gallons of tanning solution, darlin’.

    12. Learning how to deal with passive-aggressiveness. Nothing says “maybe I will, maybe I won’t, maybe you should buzz off” like unrequited J-emails.
