Domestic Dating Sites
I am sure that many of you have been down this road. Perhaps you have had some success, but the odds are against you for a variety of reasons. Sure, there are many sincere, attractive women on these sites. However, anyone with a credit card (some are free) can post a profile. Of course the photos may or may not reflect reality. Scams are frequent. Understand that some of these sites are in 150 countries.
I have personally tried several of them. I can recall beginning a communication with an attractive woman who claimed to be in my area, only to discover that she lived in Malaysia. Next, of course, she asked for money! So, scams? You don’t have to go to overseas for this to happen. It can happen right in your backyard.
American men are at a big disadvantage on these sites. Why? First of all there are over 54 million single marriage age folks in the US. They are about equal in gender although there are a few more men. By the way, for the first time the 2010 census said there were more single people than married! Interesting.
I have posted before about the age prejudice in America. It is almost impossible for a guy to date a woman more than 5 years his junior unless you have a lot of money or look like Brad Pitt. No wonder guys seek to expand their search area abroad. It makes a lot of sense for this and many other reasons.
So, here are the stats I mentioned:
54 million singles
41 million have tried online dating
$1.2 billion in revenue
15 million members in eHarmony worldwide
21 million members in Match in 150 countries
18 months courtship when meeting online
42 months courtship offline
Here it is! 17% marriages when meeting online.
Bottom line? Book a romance tour through A Foreign Affair and have the opportunity to meet hundreds of beautiful, marriage minded women in a matter of days. Match or any other site cannot do this for you.
Best of luck,
