When Finding Compatible Singles, It's All about Focus
When it comes to excelling at anything, a focused approach is usually necessary to get to the top. So if focus helps one achieve success at conquering a given sport, say, why should it not apply to finding someone through online personals on the Internet? As it turns out, focus does count when it comes to dating. Exercising a carefully targeted approach with pinpoint accuracy is the best way to find a partner who thinks just like you. That's where "niche" online dating comes in. The folks who host adult personals on the Web have finally figured it out. Singles want like-minded matches.
Even still, not every free personals online dating service has gotten the message yet. Note that typing the word singles into Google pulls up over 17,000,0000 results. This daunting figure is enough to steer any man or woman back to the print classifieds or even the bar scene—where the odds of finding Mr. or Mrs. Right are slimmer.
While broad-appeal, online dating service sites apparently still attract a strong following, discerning adults are, instead, logging onto niche online dating sites that target compatible mates with bull's-eye accuracy. So much so that niche-dating directories are now popping up on the Web, adding momentum to the move from "broad" to "specific" by Internet savvy single men and single women.
Work out enthusiast Tim O’Malley found his love interest through an online dating niche site called Fitness Singles, an online dating service on the Web that caters only to those who prioritize health and fitness. “It was like we had known each other for years,” says O’Malley. “We went to the gym together, had a killer workout; we have everything in common. We didn’t think falling in love was possible and can’t believe it happened to us.”
"The interest in our niche site has dramatically increased as people recognize the inherent advantages of thematic online personals over broad-appeal adult personals,” says Chris Mattioli, president of Fitness Singles. "As soon as people hear the name, they immediately recognize that our focus is on physically-active people. There is no mistaking that our members and visitors hope to improve their odds of meeting that one individual with the same active outlook on life as they have."
Fitness Singles, for one, carries niche matching one step further by allowing a choice of seventy-nine different active lifestyle categories such as body building, bicycling, pilates, rock climbing, yoga, golf, and almost every other sport imaginable. Site members like O’Malley learn each other’s top three fitness interests and skill levels (from novice to pro) along with other information. Such specificity greatly increases the chance of meeting someone of like mind.
Like many online dating adult personals, niche sites usually offer some free personals services, such as posting your profile. Hence, the door is wide open for single women and single men to zero in on finding an ideal match—be it someone to go running with or someone to square off against in a game of tennis. By turning to these online dating Web sites, adult women and men can focus in on finding a highly compatible companion.
