Internet dating sites has changed the way we date for good. Millions use them to connect with other likeminded people. Dating sites are hugely popular within the bi community. It offers them a convenient way to find partners. While dating sites are good, now there’s something even better. And that is social sites, like Facebook. If you are not using it to connect with others, you are missing something big.
4 big advantages social sites offer to bi people
Here are some key advantages offered by social sites.
- 1. They are free
Creating an account on a social site and searching for likeminded people doesn’t cost a thing on social sites. While dating sites can be used for free, free users don’t get to enjoy many features. For instance, on most dating sites, free users can create a profile, upload their pictures, check out the profile of other users, and reply to messages received from other users. They cannot initiate a contact with another user. This is a big drawback, and practically makes finding a suitable part improbable. To enjoy the ability to contact other users, you need a paid membership.
Thankfully, there are no such restrictions on social sites. If you happen to like another user, you can initiate a contact. If he or she accepts, you can simply begin to exchange messages.
- 2. They are convenient
You can access and use bisexual social media sites using your smartphone. Plus, you can set up you mobile in such a way to receive an immediate message every time someone posts on your timeline.
- 3. Joining relevant groups increases chances of finding a partner
You can join relevant communities and groups on social media sites to broaden your social circle and improve your chances of finding a partner. For instance, if you use Facebook, you can become a member of a local bi community to connect with new people.
- 4. The risk of scammers is less
Even the best dating sites have some scammers who try to swindle money out of unsuspecting users. While bisexual social media sites too have their share of unscrupulous users, the chances of getting scammed while searching for a date is less here, especially if you are a member of certain relevant groups and search for a partner within the members of that group.
With so many advantages on offer, it’s hardly surprising that social sites are hugely popular among bisexuals. With that said, it is necessary that you follow the safe dating rules, which include:
- Block scammers if they contact you. The most common way scammers dupe unsuspecting users is by luring them with attractive photos (which are usually fake) and inviting messages, and once the other person starts showing some interest, they ask for monetary help on some pretext.
- Meet in a public place on your first date. If you have found someone interesting and want to meet her or him, you should pick a safe place for your meeting.
Keep in mind the following two tips and enjoy meeting new exiting people through social media.
