Online Couples – Do They Really Last?

The world of online dating has become a phenomenon with around one-third of marriages in the US beginning online. Recent studies have also suggested that relationships which begin online are less likely to break down, last longer, and are more loving than relationships which begin offline. But, what are the reasons for this and can these statistic be believed?

1

When people make the plunge into online dating or find themselves attracted to a person they’ve met online there are some key advantages to meeting someone offline. The main advantage of online dating lies in the ability to meet someone who shares your passions and interests. When meeting someone online there is an ability to be a lot fussier than trying to meet someone in everyday situations. The internet has the ability to connect millions of people from all over the world, instead of the handful of people you can meet offline. This increases the chances of meeting a compatible person dramatically.

A relationship that is formed online begins through shared interests rather than pure chemistry and this can be the basis for a long relationship. When meeting someone offline the initial attraction will generally occur on a chemical level – how attractive the other person is. The benefit of meeting someone online occurs through a deeper connection. Many people will be able to find a good picture of themselves, but it is the personality traits which stand out more in an online forum.

As a relationship grows, the first thing to fade is the initial chemical attraction to how good-looking the person is. On the other hand, a common interest or hobby will remain forever and can be a solid foundation on which to build a relationship. By meeting someone online, you can get to know their likes and dislikes before even meeting them face to face and judge whether they enjoy similar activities to you.

Many dating websites now use an algorithm to match users up with one another. This algorithm finds key interests which have been input on a dating profile and matches them with another person who shares those key interests. Think about your friends, they will generally share key beliefs and interests with you. Finding a partner is very similar, except by using an online forum there is a greater opportunity of finding someone who shares many of your interests.

It has been said that by going online to find love you can increase your chances by up to 20% over traditional means. This can also be translated into forming a relationship online, which is proven by marriages which formed online lasting up to 20% longer also. The tide of thought about online dating is dramatically changing. This is leading to more and more people willing to give it a go, which in turn is leading to a higher chance of people finding the perfect partner. It is predicted that in the next ten years more than half of marriages will begin online and as this happens divorce rates will drop.

ChatRandom Helps Local Authorities Catch Online Predator  

On June 30th of 2014, a moderator at Chatrandom saw something extremely suspicious; someone was streaming child pornography on the site. The moderator immediately reported this, took a screenshot of the child who was being abused on webcam and was even able to take note of the IP address where this video source was being streamed. The child in the video was between 6 and 12 years old.

The Beaufort County Sheriff’s Office intervened in Bluffton on September 26th with a search warrant to search the house where the video was streamed. The house belonged to none other than Wicked Lester’s guitarist Stephen Coronel who used to play with Gene Simmons and Paul Stanley from KISS.

user17021-1412010164-media1

Coronel was charged with 5 counts of Sexual Exploitation of Minor. His entire house was searched and the following items were seized; 3 computers, 7 external hard drives, 3 cell phones and numerous media drives such as CDs and flash drives. Among all of these items, numerous videos were found with minors between the ages of 3 and 11 engaging in sexual acts.

Chatrandom’s security measures effective

Being able to stop this predator is a what makes Chatrandom proud. We know that they are many predators just like Stephen Coronel all over the world and if we can stop just one of them per day, that would make us even prouder. Although we can’t prevent all predators from doing what they do, we definitely do our best to stop as many as possible.

The moderators at Chatrandom work hard every single day to ensure that this site remains as safe as possible. Predators are stopped on a daily basis, but very few of them receive as much attention as Stephen Coronel’s case did. However, we still do stop many predators and this allows us to believe that we are doing someone for the community that is wonderful; cleaning up the world as much as we possibly can.

New security measures making Chatrandom even safer

We are constantly working towards upgrading our security measures at Chatrandom so that you can enjoy a safe video chatting environment. We provide our users with a report button where users can report inappropriate behaviors and we also have numerous moderators online at all times of the day and night keeping your video chatting experience as secure as possible.

Our team has even developed an automatic predator system that can detect such individuals and fake streaming software tools. Anyone who is caught streaming such videos will automatically be banned and in most cases, the IP address will be noted. With constant upgrades and enhanced security measures, we plan to increase the amount of predators that we catch.

We have gathered several of the different uses that webcams can have and we brought them all to you in this one blog post. If you thought webcams were a one hit wonder, think twice, these cam uses might blow your mind.

Doctors from a distance

Did you know that doctors have begun using webcams to provide their services from a distance? That’s right, more and more doctors are beginning to use virtual clinics to diagnose and treat patients with minor illnesses. Although this use may be subject to controversy and some may judge that these doctors are not capable of diagnosing a patient from a webcam, it’s still a pretty cool webcam use. It’s actually amazing for patients who don’t have vehicles or who live in countries that lack medical attention.

Giveaways

2

Webcams are even used for giving away free items. That’s right, people in need can log onto websites that provide donations via webcams. With webcam shows and freebie giveaways, many donations can be received. Families who have lost their homes to fires and other types of situations can get funds and people from all over the globe can send them items to help them out via their webcam. This is a wonderful way to help others who are in need. Once again, webcams are used for wonderful purposes.

Watching wildlife

Wildlife is amazing and now you can watch them 24/7. Live webcams watch all sorts of animals in the wild such as bald eagles nests, tigers and even monkeys at zoos. More and more wildlife webcams are being installed and can be watched for free from the internet. With just a few mouse clicks, you can be watching a lion have a great meal at a zoo or spy on an eagle’s nest in the middle of the forest. It’s amazing how close we can get to these dangerous animals from the comfort of our own homes.

How to Meet Great Guys on the Internet

The internet is full of guys looking for all sorts of relationships, from casual to long-term, and contrary to belief the majority are seeking a genuine relationship. Finding a great guy online may take a little bit of effort as you eliminate the ones who aren’t seeking the same thing as you, but all the best things in life take at least some effort. There are two main ways to meet guys online; online dating sites and random cam sites. Knowing how to utilize each method can lead to meeting tons of great guys online.

téléchargement

Online Dating Sites

Online dating sites are teeming with guys, but how do you separate the great ones from the not so great ones? The first thing you need to do is set up a profile which exhibits your best qualities without revealing too much. Add information about your interests and hobbies with a profile picture that doesn’t contain any nudity. A profile picture that is too revealing or shows nudity may attract the wrong type of guys.

Once you have set up a profile, search for guys who share your interests and have also taken the time to fill out a complete profile. Any guys who have an incomplete profile or one with less than five pictures may be just using the site to seek out a quick fling. Once you have found a guy who looks interesting, don’t be afraid to send the first message. Sometimes guys can be shy too and receiving a message from a girl first can bring out the confidence in some guys.

When messaging try not to limit the conversation about your interests, ask him what he likes to do and what he’s interested in. Spend time getting to know him and see if he maintains his interest in you. If after a few days if the conversation is still flowing and he remains interested then you can begin to think about meeting up or taking the next step. By being patient and maintaining a level of caution, you are sure to find some great guys using this method.

Random Cam Sites

Random cam sites have become a hub of socializing and meeting great people over the last couple of years. The opportunity to meet hundreds of people in the space of a couple of hours makes the process much easier than online dating and opens up the opportunity to meet loads more guys. Be sure not to start off naked on cam as you will generally gain the attention of guys who are just looking for cybersex and the genuine guys may pass you by.

You can be creative when using a random cam site and cook, play an instrument, or draw while flicking through the other users. The majority of users on these sites are looking for a decent conversation or a relationship so don’t be put off by the few who are only looking to get off. Once you’ve connected with an interesting guy, keep the conversation flowing by asking him questions about himself and finding out his hobbies.

This is an excellent opportunity to meet some great guys from all over the world and maybe even find that special someone. If at any stage you are unhappy with the way the conversation is going, simply click ‘next’ and move on to meet the next great guy. Why not try it out and see how many great guys there are waiting to talk to you!

A Few Things You Didn’t Know About Online Dating

Even if you haven’t tried online dating before, it’s impossible to ignore its existence. Online dating is dramatically growing year on year and shows no signs of slowing down. Although online dating was originally thought to be for the extremely lonely or weirdoes, it has gained acceptance in our society and now caters to people from all walks of life. In fact, it has become so popular there are some very niche online dating sites to cater for anybody’s tastes. So, how much do you know about online dating? Here are a few facts that most people don’t know about the world of online dating:

The Concept Isn’t New

1

Using personal ads to find a soul mate and fall in love isn’t a new concept. In fact, online dating is essentially a twist on an idea that’s been around for centuries. As early as the 18th Century, men who were looking for love would advertise their credentials in a local newspaper to find a soul mate. There were even agencies back then that would provide professional love matches for a fee (sound familiar?!).

Online Dating is Over 50 Years Old

article-2492393-194897AB00000578-960_634x530

The idea for modern online dating was found at New York’s World Fair in 1964. The fair featured a giant computer that matched people up with pen pals from all over the world. People would fill out a questionnaire with information about themselves and instantly become matched with a like-minded person. This idea was then applied to people who wanted to find a match closer to home and online dating was born.

One Third of Marriages Start Online

3

The popularity of online dating has risen to such an extent that over one-third of marriages in the US last year began online. The figures have been steadily increasing over the last decade and it’s predicted that in the near future more people will meet online than any other way. Of these marriages, almost 50% met on an online dating site while the rest met through social media, chat rooms, online forums, and random webcam sites.

Online Relationships Have the Highest Success Rate

4

Recent studies have shown that people who meet online enjoy a longer and happier relationship than those who met offline. There are a couple of factors which are said to be responsible for this. First, online dating offers a much wider range of people than the average person would meet in their day to day life giving a higher chance of meeting a soul mate. Secondly, the ability to search people by interests, eye color, height, location etc. allows people to teak their potential matches and find someone who shares their views and beliefs.

There’s Online Dating Sites for Ghosts and Pets

6

No, that’s not a typing error! The online dating scene has found many niches and these are two of the strangest. Ghostsingles.com offers to match male and female ghosts for ‘eternity’ with profiles, singles chat, and advanced search options! Another strange online dating site is petsdating.com, which offers to connect your pet with other pets in the area.

First Impression

It has been said that a girl makes up her mind whether she like you or not within the first 10 seconds of seeing you. This makes the first impression you give out key to your success. If you’re setting up a profile for online dating, think carefully about the information you put about yourself and the profile picture you select. The picture should be casual and fun, but not offensive with any nudity.

Using a random cam site gives the perfect opportunity to make a great first impression. Use the webcam to your advantage by smiling in preparation of meeting the next person or doing something amusing such as dancing or playing an instrument. This can spark an instant conversation and get her interested in you from the off.

Be Polite

Although you may want to find out personal information or compliment her body straight away, try and hold back for a while. Build up the conversation through polite chit-chat and stay away from dirty talk at the beginning. Girls want to know that you are interested in them and their hobbies, so ask questions and find out information about her before moving the conversation to more personal information.

Be Funny

There’s nothing that attracts girls more than a sense of humor and making a girl laugh can be the key to her heart. You don’t have to be the funniest guy on the planet in order to make a girl laugh, simply relax and maintain a conversational tone. The laughs will come and as they do she will gain more trust in you.

Be Interesting

Girls hate it when the only conversation you can come up with is something they’ve heard a thousand times before. Stay away from asking the usual questions such as ‘How are you?’ or ‘What brings you here?’ Instead think of interesting topics which will keep the conversation flowing and keep her interested.

Don’t be Offensive

Being offensive can ruin all your hard work in an instant. You need to be able to judge the right time to ask certain questions and mention controversial topics. If you want to compliment her looks avoid saying stuff like ‘Great rack!’ or ‘You have a hot body’ as this could offend her and make her move on. Stick to non-offensive compliments such as ‘You look very pretty in that top’ or ‘your eyes are incredible!’

10 Pickup Lines that Never Fail

Finding a great pickup line can be difficult, with each line specific to a certain type of person and situation. The main reasons for pickup lines is as a way to break the ice and get the conversation flowing. For this reason the majority of great pickup lines contain an element of humor which can put the person they’re being used on at ease. The key to getting a pickup line to work is to make it seem like you’re not using a pickup line at all and making it sound spontaneous and casual. With that in mind, here are 10 pickup lines that have worked time and time again:

1.       Do you believe in love at first sight or should I walk past again?

This is a well-known pickup line, but it can still be very effective. In the perfect scenario you would casually say this line as you passed the person you were using it on, making it seem as casual as possible and catching them off guard.

2.       I love that shirt/hat/your hair…

A sincere compliment can work very effectively if it sounds genuine and not a false compliment to try and get attention. Pick out the best feature of the person before approaching them and if they blush or say thank you, keep the conversation flowing.

3.       Are you Wi-Fi? Because I feel a connection!

This one sounds quite cheesy, but, it can work really well if used in the right situation. Most places these days have Wi-Fi connections and by asking about the Wi-Fi you can throw them off a little before letting the punchline loose!

4.       You look like trouble!

This can work really well in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. The way you say it can determine how effective it is – remain casual and easy-going when using this line and be prepared for a little back and forth flirting if the person responds positively.

5.       Have we met?

This simple line can be a great way to start a conversation. Asking them if you’ve met before will mean they have to think about it and opens up opportunity for follow up conversation. If they say no, ask them if they’ve been to a certain place and keep the conversation moving along.

6.       How much does a polar bear weigh? Enough to break the ice!

Using a joke for a pickup line can be dangerous, but if you make them laugh you will definitely be in with a chance. This joke works perfectly as it explains what you’re trying to do in a fun way and is likely to get a giggle.

7.       Have you got a little Irish/Italian/Spanish/etc. in you? No….Do you want some?

Another pickup line that can get a giggle is this one. Be sure to time the delivery of the joke correctly for maximum effect. If you get a laugh, the door is open for conversation.

8.       I looked up the word ‘beautiful’ in the thesaurus today and your name was included.

Although quite cheesy, this line has a very high hit rate. People love compliments and by using this creative way to complement their looks it shows you’re trying to be a bit different from the person who simply says ‘You’re hot’.

9.       You’re eyes are so cute. Oh, wait! I think the right one is a little cuter than the left one.

If you use this line it is bound to get a giggle or a blush. By starting with a simple compliment and turning it into a joke, you will display your creativity and will certainly get a good reaction.

10.   You really shouldn’t wear makeup. You’re messing with perfection!

Be careful with this one as you don’t want it to sound offensive, but, if delivered in the right way it can be a huge compliment. The best way to deliver the line is to say the first bit and wait for her to react before adding the compliment.
