Flirting online, how far things have gone

It may be a matter of a few decades since the first commercial dating sites were launched, but in that relatively short space of time, digital matchmaking has become a global phenomenon. Singles can choose from thousands of websites and apps, catering to worldwide memberships running into million, while the industry itself is currently turning over billions. If you’ve never been tempted to check out what all the fuss is about, perhaps our rundown of how easy it is to flirt in the virtual environment might compel you to try? 1 Why is online flirting so popular? Signing up to the plethora of available dating outlets to flirt with other singles has become one of the most widely-embraced cultural activities of the contemporary age. These outlets represent a haven, where like-minded individuals can feel at home engaging in flirty conversations with other singles, usually from home – or any other location where they can get the decent WiFi single that will allow them to flirt online with prospective partners. 2 Where can it lead? There is no telling where a spot of online flirting might lead. People get into online dating for myriad reasons. For many, it’s all about being part of a unique community, where what they have in common with their fellow site users is a shared passion for a sports team, a love of a particular musical genre, or whatever other type of common ground you could think of. When they first sign up to a site, they might do so with no other idea than introducing themselves in the chat room facility, and indulging in group discussions – flirty or otherwise – with their fellow site users. But others might find themselves getting inexorably drawn into the whole experience, and spend hour after hour flirting with those individuals they can sense sexual chemistry with. 3 What technology is being harnessed? All sorts of flexible tech are being deployed on dating sites to make it easier and more seamless for members to maintain lines of communication. Those prototype websites mentioned at the outset would have offered a platform where singles could leave messages in a potential partner’s inbox. Nowadays, there’s a range of techniques at the disposal of newcomers. They might choose to exchange regular text messages, enhanced by attaching images, or video clips. They might find common ground and could Download TikTok to provide extra layers of entertaining connectivity. The more they communicate in this intimate environment, the greater their confidence will grow, and the more expansive their chats can become. The websites are also likely to offer advice and guidance by way of regular blog posts on various dating-related subjects. If someone is new to the digital dating world, their fellow site users will be only too keen to pass on the benefit of their knowledge. Scanning through a back catalogue of related posts can instil a sense of confidence about engaging with newfound friends. 4 What does the future hold? Sometimes it’s worth reminding ourselves that the first-ever commercial matchmaking outlets were launched in the mid-1990s. To some extent, it doesn’t seem too long time ago that Oasis were the top rock band in the world, but at the same time, the technological advances since then have been staggering. Every aspect of society has benefited from ongoing tech innovations, but this has been especially noticeable where the dating industry is concerned. The algorithms used throughout these sites are becoming increasingly sophisticated. This is software capable of analyzing aspects of anyone’s registration form or profile, then running programs that will flag up whenever other site users have specified they like the same things. Matches can be suggested far quicker than the laborious process of browsing through profile after profile. These can now assess how any site users behave when they are online, considering the type of questions they might ask when interacting with fellow members. If it becomes apparent they have a particular liking for, say, Italian cuisine, the website will become proactive, sending suggestions for restaurants that might be worth trying during a date. But it’s the flirting technology that is liable to become ever more popular over the next decade or so that truly captures the imagination – virtual reality (VR). By donning VR headsets, site users will be able to ‘meet’ other singles in fantastical dimensions, interacting with them in ultra-realistic situations. These scenarios can be enhanced with remotely-triggered sex toys! So signing up to one of the numerous online dating outlets is the most obvious path to follow if you’re keen to connect with compatible partners. Taking advantage of convenient communication platforms is an easy way to develop a rapport, and once you’ve become familiar with another site user by a regular exchange of messages, you can use the digital environment to begin planning your first face-to-face get-together.
