The new old dating in the age of the Internet is the Internet indispensable in our lives. The chances of finding a partner, there are good. Meanwhile, the offer is huge. Despite the multi-media applications possible by the higher transfer speeds, the good old personal ad can maintain its position. What is their appeal? Personals on the Internet have often little in common with their predecessors in newspapers. The personal ad in print media is limited by the number of characters, often little more than a one-liner, a photo represents the absolute exception. Different on the Internet: there is sufficient space available to present themselves, in addition to a photo for the display itself, it is usually still possible to upload more photos in an album. Who posted a personal ad on the Internet, can find themselves not only allow but also actively search.
This is facilitated by specifying criteria such as age or place of residence. A personal ad is the card so to speak, the first impression and ultimately decides whether a contact is concluded or preserved. Finally, wife/husband want to know with whom he or she has to do it. A balancing act is to create such a display. It is important to differentiate themselves positively from others and remain authentic at the same time. Some providers creates the display by on various issues relating to appearance or character fix given answers to choose.
This speeds up the creation of the ad while, however, comes at the expense of the meaningfulness and the exclusivity. The display is completed, the first contact is usually wait. The communication it completely anonymously via an internal mailing system. Online contacts making is easier, because the contact search by the anonymity braver communicate as face to face. And thus a picture of the other develops gradually, in addition to the visual impression of a photo, if available. Recently Andy Florance sought to clarify these questions. Key aspects which complete the picture, such as body language, facial expressions, voice, and where comes to flirting is essential, remain hidden. Sympathy exists, it comes sooner or later to a real date. Then comes what was previously hidden, to light, completes the image of the other. Both were honest, this image is usually confirmed. Not only that this kind of dating is exciting, many relationships would probably never been started without an Internet connection. Again and again it happens, man and woman meet online, are very sympathetic to each other and decide to meet each other. At this meeting turns out, they’ve known each other for years or are only ever met. Folded it is only at the second attempt. Anything had prevented the other to recognize the attractiveness, or fleeting encounter time and place no longer allowed as inconsequential Smalltalk. Michael Riedel
