Cell phone and dating
The serial-dating syndrome seems to be moving from the internet to mobile phones.The more things change, the more they remain the same.Through your phone these type of dating services allow you to access your profile, search for matches and message or chat with other online daters anywhere you want!
Many singles chat with multiple people, taking their time to decide who to meet and who not to. Says Alan, a 19-year-old from Queens, New York who found love through his cell phone, "I'm generally shy with girls and find it hard to go ahead and chat them up. I signed up for a dating offer and exchanged messages with eleven girls, eventually met three of them and am not dating Sue, who I met through this service." It's not only the shy but also the busy professionals who've taken to SMS dating.
"I signed up and started getting chat messages almost immediately. He lives a day's drive away and I hope to meet him this weekend.
This guy sent me some really cute poetry.I was floored. He's a computer geek and I know I may never have run into him otherwise.
The anonymity of mobile dating is advantageous to many who seek to protect their privacy, atleast until they get to know someone a little better.
All messages go through the provider and the dating service which means your phone number also stays hidden with mobile phone dating.
