When people hear the mention of casual encounters, nine times out of ten you can expect them to paint a pretty negative view on the subject. After all movies and television have illustrated the act as an often drunken affair, where the following morning is met with a mixture of regret and upset. Don’t believe everything you see in the media though as casual dating can be a healthy alternative lifestyle for all involved, thanks to the internet.
With the Internet quickly becoming the main way in which we keep in touch with friends and family, do our shopping, and keep up to date on the latest news around the globe, as well as pretty much most other things in our lives; it’s no surprise to see our romantic lives also being aided by the World Wide Web too.
I’m sure you’re wondering, “How can it be that casual encounters are a healthy alternative?” Sure meeting girls and guys in bars and clubs on sounds like the exact opposite experience on the surface – after all you’re heading back to the bedroom with a random stranger. However with the Internet helping, you can quickly transform this sort of experience into something much safer.
Thanks to dating websites casual encounter have never been easier. For example, you can meet women looking for sex on MySexHookups. Whenever you sign up, you’re given the chance to “sell yourself” by creating your very own personal profile. It’s through these profiles that we can sift through and locate others who share similar interests or at the very least want the same sort of casual experience and vice versa. Whereas in a club you have no real idea as to every person’s likes and dislikes or whether they are even looking for a casual encounter, online dating profiles allow you to filter and locate the best suited people for you.
Using the Internet to meet people also gives you one thing that approaching someone in a bar or club does not – time. You’re given the chance to actually chat a little at first and see if there’s any chemistry there at all. It removes the stress and worry of having to approach a stranger by allowing you to break down that barrier whether it’s via online chat or a phone call.
Furthermore, the extra time allows you to organise a decent evening for the pair of you as opposed to a quick and abrupt one that might leave you feeling dirty and used. Sure the sexual activity will happen at some point (that is why the pair of you are meeting after all) but who’s to say you can’t also throw in a meal or fun activity too? Whereas meeting someone in a club removes any potential to do this, meeting someone online gives you the opportunity to do so.
After dancing in a club for hours on end it’s safe to say you’re hardly feeling your best. With the added element of alcohol thrown into the mix, let’s just say it’s hardly an ideal setup. Meeting online and setting a time gives you the chance to scrub up and look the part, as you would with any sort of date.
Thanks to the Internet casual encounters no longer need to be limited to random hook-ups in seedy bars. Truth of the matter is it can be a healthy alternative in many ways.
