In the world of online dating, there’s a vast number of dating websites and apps that you can use. Inevitably, you’ve probably wondered which site was the best for you, but also if you should use multiple sites or just one.
They each come with their own benefits and drawbacks, but you also have to decide which ones you’re going to use if you decide to use multiple. You can think of the difference between using multiple dating sites and one dating site like casting out fishing nets.
With one net, you can really specify where you want to cast and what kind of fish you’re looking for. With multiple nets, you can spread it out over a much larger area, and catch more fish, but you’ll catch a lot of unwanted fish and ocean trash as well.
So, with multiple dating sites you can take in a lot more people, but you’ll have many more unwanted people to sort through. By using one dating site and sticking with it, you’ll get a much better feel for the culture of that site and a better understanding of how it works.
This can help you because if you’re more familiar with one website, you’ll be able to use it more efficiently without having to learn something new every time. Given that each dating site has a lot of its own features, you can put most of your effort into one to get the most out of it.
Now, on the other hand, by using a few different sites, you can get a much larger group of people to choose from and meet. Someone who might be right for you might only use one site, and if you’re only using one other site, you’ll likely never find one another.
Having a wider variety of sites allows you to meet with different kinds of people from different kinds of communities, as well. One of the drawbacks of using multiple sites is that if some of the sites you’re using are paid services, you might start to rack up a considerable bill.
Some websites only charge about $5 per month, but if you’re using multiple websites, you might start to get closer to $30 or more per month, which can add up fast. If you stick to free services or minimize your use of paid services, though, this won’t be too much of a problem.
