Remember back in the day when you first tried out a chat room? You would get on and one of the first things that you would ask the person you just met is “asl?”. This, of course, was an acronym meaning “age, sex, location”. Although chat rooms aren’t quite as popular as they used to be, the questions of age, sex, location, is still an important part of getting to know someone. These are important questions to be pondered when trying to find a potential dating companion. These days, online profiles are the best place to go in order to answer these questions. Online dating sites do a great job of allowing you to view all kinds of different profiles in order to give you a lot of variety when you are looking for someone special. One great way to give yourself more potential matches is to expand your views on the ages of the people you meet as well as where they are located.
When considering ages of people you are looking at, don’t be so picky that you rule out a lot of good potential mates. For instance, is there really that big of a difference between someone that is 22 and someone that is 26. Or between the ages of 35 and 39? In all reality, these kinds of differences don’t make a huge difference in the long run, especially if you end up getting in a serious relationship. On the other hand, someone that is twenty years older than you might be a little intimidating. Two decades worth of life experience can make a difference over time, and may be a big hurdle to get over. However, if you can start broadening your horizons when it comes to age, you will be able to get out of your comfort zone and meet someone that really takes your breath away. Try out adding a few years to your initial parameters and see what kind of results you get from branching out.
The next thing to talk about is that of location. Maybe you have set a 20 mile limit on how far out away from your home you will travel for a date, but extend that out a few blocks or a few miles and you are sure to gather in even more people that could potentially surprise you. While long distance dating can be a bit difficult, it can also end up being very rewarding.
