Is Organic Dating Better?

Some matchmaking experts swear by it. They say it is the best method out there. Here are a couple of reasons:

  1. The ‘organic dater’ is not looking for someone and is not out there playing the field. They are open to something but are not spending all their time looking, chatting with multiple people all the time (online or email) and not really being available.
  2. The typical online dater has created a ‘robot spec’ of the person they want. “He must be between 5ft 8 and 6ft 2 inches in height, have blue eyes and finished a graduate degree”. If anyone falls outside that ‘robot spec’ they are not considered. This is brutal for the would be suitors but also bad for the specifier as they will be excluding some pretty great matches because of the filters in place.

Being Ready to Date Organically
