Just about everyone wants to find love. Men and women alike have a vision of what they want their wedding to look like, and almost everyone has wondered at some point if the person they are dating is the one. Unfortunately, most people do not find their soulmate on the first try. This means that most people get thrown headfirst back into singlehood and have to start from square one in their search for love.
No matter how much as person wants to find love, starting that search can be intimidating. How do you know that the handsome man that invited you out for drinks is not some serial killer? How can you be sure that the beautiful woman you met is not out to rob you, or worse, secretly already married? Given the pervasive hookup mindset of today, how can you tell if the person you are interested in is looking for a relationship or some casual sex?
From dating apps to vernacular like “Netflix and chill,” the modern dating scene seems tailor made to keep people uncertain and confused. Still, love will not simply drop into your lap one day. If you want to find the one, you have to go looking for them. That said, you need to know how to search for love in today’s internet age. Whether you are returning to the dating scene after the end of a long relationship or just beginning your search for love, here is what you need to know about dating in the digital era.
