The Economics of Online Adult Dating

There is a significant correlation between online adult dating and the economic repercussions it can have on you. Put simply, it can save you money. And lots of it.

As of the writing of this post, the dollar is weak, and only getting weaker. The markets are weakening as they go through their respective “corrections”. The price of heating oil and fuel has been skyrocketing. Foreclosures are on the rise and things are beginning to look a little bleak for the winter months. What does this have to do with online adult dating?

It costs money to date. Not only that, it costs money to meet. And this is where I will start. If you want to meet other singles, normally you would consider a bar or club the starting point for your adult dating endeavors. As you already know, when you go to a bar, it is not an automatic truth that you will meet a potential dating partner every time you frequent your establishment of choice. It may take several visits of patronizing such establishments before you ever even meet someone. What do most people do at bars? People consume. People consume beverages, whether alcoholic or not, and eat food. Well, this stuff costs money and it can add up very quickly. One night at such an establishment can cost $30 to $50 for one person. That’s a lot of dough to dish out for one night if your intent is to meet someone in the adult dating scene, let alone if you go out on Friday and Saturday night every weekend. See where I’m going with this?

So you are spending all of this money to meet an interesting single. What happens when you do meet a potential dating partner at such a place? How conducive to forming an adult dating relationship is the establishment that you are at? Are you able to speak naturally, without the need to yell? Are you offered the ability to have a meaningful one on one conversation? See Why I Hate The Bar Scene for more on this topic.

Let’s say that you do meet a potential dating partner after a few visits to these establishments. By this time, you’ve already spent a good amount of money. You’ve had a brief phone conversation or two and you decide to go on a date, because traditionally, this is how the progression of the traditional dating scene works. You go on your date and it does not work out between you and what you thought may have been your new adult dating partner. Guess what? You just spent more money and now you are back to square one. The entire process starts over. Rinse and repeat.

Now, think about the alternative that is readily available to break this cycle and save you money. For a little less than one night at the bar you could have joined an online adult dating site for one month. You could have been corresponding to other singles with the same mindset as you and meeting potential dating partners every day of the week, not just a night or two on the weekend.

I hope you can see the amount of money that you can save by simply joining an online adult dating site. Not only that, these sites are highly targeted places to meet people. It’s a dating site, that’s why people are there. They are not there to eat, they are there to meet like minded individuals. Not only that, the channels available for correspondence are much more conducive than waiting until you go out to dinner and needlessly spend more money, only to find that you are not a good fit.
