Am I Losing Out By Not Internet Dating?




I use the internet for everything from my social media, my blog, to online shopping, Netflix, googling random GIFs to make me laugh, the odd Facebook stalk, you know the usual but never have I thought about letting the interwebs find me a boyfriend!

Now call me old fashioned but I just don't think there is anything better than meeting someone in person and hitting it off. 
Remember the butterflies you'd get when you saw your crush across the room? Yeah, those feelings, that how I believe it should be when you meet someone and I just don't think you can feel those feelings from clicking on someone's profile....

The chances of meeting that special someone at work, uni, a bar seems to be pretty slim to none these days and I hear that, the struggle is well and truly REAL! Let's take me for example, I recently started working for an estate agent company and my office is small and all female. I can definitely say I'm not going to find my forever partner there. So where do you find Mr Right or even just Mr Right now? 

In this day and age, no one has any time to relax let alone go out and meet someone - me included. We're all just too busy so dating apps like Tinder, Match etc has seen a rise in people setting up a profile and putting themselves out there. 
I have plenty of friends that have given it a go, some with success and some with epic fails but they've all been brave enough to try.

I've dabbled with the idea and even downloaded Tinder once or twice but I've always ended up deleting it and cringing to myself. Don't ask me why I think I just get a little embarrassed with the idea of putting myself out there like that and having them swiping left and right on my profile just make me feel weird. I don't know, maybe I'm just defensive as it's been a really long time since I've dated. Maybe I'm just scary.

But Dionne, it's 2017! How are you going to find someone? The answer to that is I don't know. Maybe one day I will be brave enough to download Tinder again and actually go on a date. Maybe I'll meet someone in person. All I know is I don't want to be losing out anymore so I may just have to bite the bullet and swept right....

How do you feel about internet dating? Have you tried it? Has it been successful?

I'll keep you guys posted and if I get any funny Tinder stories I will let you know.
