Let's Meet Up at Meetlocals.com

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of MeetLocals.com. All opinions are 100% mine.


Internet has replaced the usual bar and coffee shop set-up when meeting a potential guy (or girl) for a date. Thank you to technology and internet. We can "shop" for potential dates, or lover in the comforts of our home. Scan pictures, flirt, get to know each other and share interests with just a few clicks while enjoying your favorite snack in pajamas.

Although I am currently not searching for a date at this point, it is interesting to know that companies are designing more and more sites to cater to single ladies and gents who are looking for partners. I came across these new dating sites called Shop4Guys.com and Meetlocals.com which from what I heard, known celebrities are members of (as evident on their Twitter updates). Wow, how nice it is to intereact with a celebrity, what more, to actually go out with one? A pleasant surprise would be if Robert Pattinson would meet up with me as he happens to be a member of Meetlocals.com! Now, I can dream..

We can honestly say that because of the anonymity and lack of actual interaction, there is still a danger that the people who we are interacting with online are not their real selves, or some may be projecting a different persona than who they really are. But the good thing is that, online dating sites help us filter the people who we would want to go out with. Imagine how easy it is go offline and ignore someone online; than to make up a story just to escape a really bad date.
