Don’t you wish it was sometimes easier to “meet the locals” when it comes to dating? Yes, you can try and go outside and find them on your own account, but not everyone has the time. It’s hard when you’re hit with other requirements, such as work, for instance. Online dating, to some extent, can be a godsend. And Meet Locals is just one of the ways to go about meeting eligible singles, right in your neighborhood. Without even having to leave the comfort or the confines of your own home; it couldn’t be more simple. “I use meetlocals.com on a regular basis and I have a hard time finding any flaws with it,” said one user, who wanted to be known only by her first name, “Laura.” “It’s only set me up with great guys. I mean, there have been one or two strange cases, but I think you’d have that even with meeting someone in a bar or somewhere not the internet.”Best of all, such a resource is free, really. Unless you want to upgrade your features or talk to a girl or guy (such as Laura) via video chat. One impressive feature of Meet Locals is its ability to allow users to talk through video chat.
“I chose to upgrade my account to the Silver because it was hard to get access to the girls I wanted to meet,” said Kevin Hatcher, an investment banker who has used Meet Locals for several months now. “They didn’t initially ask for my credit card or anything like that- I’ve known a few websites that have and that put me in a wary state of mind. Meet Locals though, has been fairly easygoing with me.”
And online dating seems like a natural transition for most people, as the internet is booming with such sites as Twitter, Tumblr, and Facebook. Why not date online, if you do most of everything else there, too? “It’s pretty easy for a person to see what you’re like online these days, to some extent. Let’s be honest,” added Laura. “It’s kind of easy to screen a potential boyfriend that way. Like, you see him post this thing on Facebook and are like “oh my god, I don’t want to date somebody like that!”’ According to an article on the Miami Herald website, an University of Texas psychology professor, Sam Gosling, noticed a direct correlation between dating online and the growth of social media. So as social media only gets more and more steam behind its engine (take a look at the new Facebook, for example) online dating can only be expected to grow as well. Something so convenient, as well as quick, has a lot of positives going for it. To go ahead and Create An Account is relatively painless. Reviews generally have only sung MeetLocals’ praises, although one user noted on a website that “it seems limited to the United States and Canada and The United Kingdom.” But another user said, of the site in assessment, it offers “love, companionship and everything in between.” And with all that available, free at your fingertips, why not go and sign up and start meeting the locals, in your backyard, today?
