  Types of Online Dating Sites

It isn't just as clear cut as "Hey, I'm online and looking for love" either. There are several different kinds of dating sites and chances are you can find one that will fit your needs.

General dating sites- Everyone is welcome, just be yourself and give it a shot. Chances are you'll meet some cool people, and there is always someone looking for a date!

Faith Based sites- You are religion x and would like someone with similar faith values. You are covered too, as there are sites for nearly every major religion, and even some of the oddball religions!

Ethnic Sites- Exactly what it implies. You are of one ethnicity and would prefer someone of the same ethnicity...or you aren't of a specific ethnicity but want to date someone who is. This may be for you!

Sex Sites- Need I say more? You are looking for some booty and so are hundreds of other people near you!

Military dating sites- If you prefer men or women in uniform, or just the military lifestyle, you are covered too.

And last, but certainly not least: STD sites- You want to find someone to date, but you have an STD and either don't want to risk rejection over it, or don't want to potentially pass it on to someone unsuspecting...this is for you. There is no shame in being health conscious while searching for a new relationship!

Of course, there are other niche dating sites, but I chose to cover the bigger ones. If you are looking for a certain niche, Google it!

  In Summary

You should consider online dating if you don't have time for "hunting" for a new lover, or if you are just looking to try something new. Don't ever be afraid to look for love (or sex, if that's all you are after) in new places. Try a few sites as they are all different...and you too could be half of a happy relationship (or a smaller fraction, if you try a polyamory site!) in no time at all!

Remember: Sex isn't nasty, and neither is a desire to be loved or to share yourself with others. Put yourself out there!

Wonderful article! 4 out of the 5 relationships I've been in were a result of meeting people online, though only my final relationship was started through an online dating service. Great introduction into the online dating world!

I had no idea that there were STD sites. I certainly learned something. I thought this article was very well written and I love your Jane Doe story analogy. I have never done online dating, but I know people who do and it has been both successful and unsuccessful.

Yup, there are STD based dating sites. I didn't even mention the other avenues (craigslist and the like) but there is seriously a niche or way for anyone to meet anyone, if you are willing to search!

Wow! STD sites? They have a website for everything. Good ole world wide web, eh!

Thanks for the article. I met my husband online, but not through a dating service. We met on a social network. We lived 200 miles apart in the same state. Talked online awhile, then on the phone. A few months later we met up and we have been together for 2 1/2 yrs since we met and now have 2 children and it's the best relationship I have ever had.
