Penpals Dating – Penpals for Dating or Just Friendship Many people nowadays approach online dating through the idea of penpals.
Using a penpals dating site such as Pen Pals (see the profiles finder on the right of this page) has a lot of advantages over a tradional dating site.
To begin with, you are not thrown into the situation of having to contact people on the basis that you want to date them. Of course, you may well want your penpals for dating once you meet and get to know them, but having that extra layer of “let’s just be friends to begin with then see if we want to take it any further” is much more comfortable.
Contacting people as a penpal to begin with, even for ‘penpals dating’ (where you make it clearer that you are looking for potential dates) gives you the chance to get to know someone a little at first.
Of course getting to know penpals online is not necessarily the same as getting to know people offline — for you will tend to see less of a rounded picture of the person, it is easier for people to hide things than it is offline, and so on.
Nevertheless, the dating penpals approach to getting to know people online gives you time to weigh up their personality and to get a clearer idea of whether they might, in the end, be suitable for you.So, now that you are aware of the advantages of penpals dating as opposed to traditional dating sites and their approach, all you have to do is get started.
