Pros and Cons of Online Dating in the Philippines from Australia


Little more than a decade ago, online dating seemed strange and unnecessary. But with the explosion of the internet, dating online has become not only accepted, but also common place.

Nowadays, the number of married couples who meet online is growing exponentially. Because, let’s be honest: who has the time or the patience these days to go to random bars in hopes of meeting someone when you can open a bottle of wine at home and bring the bar to your computer? While online dating isn’t for everyone, here are some pros and cons of online dating.


Oh the possibilities

Not even in any bar can you get a room full of such diverse people in Australia and the Philippines. When it comes to online dating, you can literally hand pick your significant other. Most online dating sites for Filipinos and Australianshave the possibility to search for the type of person you are looking for, either by external features or interests and hobbies.

Saving money

You have probably noticed that going out these days can cost a fortune. Gas, taxis, parking meters, entrées, drinks, and tips! Luckily, dating sites give you the opportunity to get to know someone before you dish out the cash on a first date. What’s more, 100% free dating sites are also an option and are super easy to use.

Rejection isn’t that bad

Let’s be honest, it is much harder to hear that your love interest isn’t into you at the end of a long meal or a string of drinks. But, when you’re online and chatting, rejection simply stings less.


People can lie

Yes, I know, it can be shocking! Some profiles can be very misleading and straight out full of lies. It’s important that you ask the right questions and do your homework. If the person sounds too good to be true, they probably are. So let us HELP YOU and we will show you how at the end of this article.

Long distance can happen

This may be good or bad, depending on how you look at it. Let’s say you find Mr. /Miss right, but they live way too far from you say the Philippines, suddenly, not so perfect. Someone may need to leave their life for the other and sometimes, it’s not easy at all. But if you are looking at developing a relationship from the Philippines then we can definitely make your meeting a lot easier and safer.

You may feel isolated

Sometimes a good way of meeting new people is going out and meeting new people. When you sit home alone at night and scour the profiles, or wait for your message box to “ping” with a reply from a potential profile, that can make a person feel a little lonely and even anti-social.

Finding love is never easy, you can either sit in a bar or be in the privacy of your own home, and be thinking that love stinks or love is the greatest gift. Remember, there are hundreds of thousands of people who are in your position and at the end of the day, online dating is a great and easy way to bring two people together who may have never found each other in the real world.
