Online Dating Among Muslims Research
<ul><li>Many people use online dating sites to overcome shyness and insecurity.
Two scientists representing Perth's Murdoch University discovered some interesting statistics.
The research involved several focus groups of online dating site members and online dating past users.
Such a big sea of online dating singles to choose from gave even the most insecure singles a huge confidence lift. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Possibility of meeting and being chosen by other attractive dating members assisted them to put aside their feelings of insecurity.
Members have more choices, they have the opportunity to be more selective and their level of confidence rises.
They're not only relying on appearances and confidence to meet people.
This isn't just finishing at the computer screen, it's the attitude online internet daters are taking with them into the real world. </li></ul>
<ul><li>A single Muslim woman who may have sat and listened to a boring guy because she thought her options were closed might now be more likely to excuse herself from the conversation.
The biggest challenge is the sifting through all the members.
Successful Muslim personals sites make it simple for singles to track down exactly what they are looking for.
Few have time to sort through all those people. </li></ul>
<ul><li>Many online dating singles who use sites too often can end up missing out on many potential matches.
They used an in house selection system to weed out those unsuitable matches.
This same selection method though often sidelines many perfect matches since the artificial constraints do not take into account information not held on the profile of a potential Muslim partner. </li></ul>
<ul><li>One of the participants got the distinct feeling, it's a lot like shopping.
They're thinking he's rather nice, but let's see if there's anyone.
Singles will become less likely to be happy with just one person.
They have to look at each before making their mind.
