Although internet dating services appear to be a great way to meet lots of singles in practice not so much. One of the many problems with it is that people have one eye on you and the other looking for someone “better” to meet. There is a lack of commitment upon meeting and dating. Most men using the internet have the philosophy it’s a numbers game and what better numbers than on the internet.
But additional drawbacks to internet dating are that people lie, post old photos or photos of someone else or may be married or in some type of relationship already. So you waste alot of time, energy and money chasing this elusive “right” person.
Joining a local dating or matchmaking service at least assures you that the person is who they say they are, has current photos of themselves and is single. However don’t fall for this background check stuff that services use to try to get you to trust them but mainly to charge you more. You can only find out so much and none of it is about loyalty, integrity or sincerety. If someone is using an alias you won’t find out anything or if they are a felon but haven’t been caught yet you won’t find anything. It merely gives you a false sense of security. Don’t pay extra for a service offering background checks.
Spark Denver’s economy and consider local services, however NEVER use a service that won’t quote their prices over the phone and insists on you coming in either for a “free interview”, to evaluate you so they can decide how much to charge you for the service. I know of several services that do “meet and greets” at Starbucks or hotels just to size you up to figure out how much money they can get out of you. Please don’t fall for that!
