The recent news about Cheryl Cole wanting to try online dating shows that we may be on the brink of a new era of internet dating. If you’re in your thirties or older you’re bound to know – and might have experienced for yourself – the stages of online dating evolving from an absolute freak novelty thing to something slightly shameful for those incapable of finding love in real life to something as ordinary and mundane as checking your emails or Facebook wall. And now we are at a place where celebrities see the internet as a viable place to look for love. It’s taking a turn towards glamour and therefore I think online dating is perhaps looking at its most glorious times yet.
It’s fascinating to think of the opportunities this turn can present. From the VIP-only dating sites to whirlwind romance stories between someone famous and someone ordinary… Well, just imagine the media frenzy! If just Cheryl Cole’s announcement has been met with public applause, it shows there’s a hole in the market. After all, famous people do get dumped, cheated on, left heartbroken. Why shouldn’t they get their very own niche of online dating – whether it’s amongst us, mere mortals or somewhere where they can only mingle with the likes of their own.
Come to think of it, which existing site would you recommend for Cheryl? Is she more of a Match.com girl who likes to take her pick from a huge pool or more of an eHarmony chica who’d be better off matched with someone compatible by the system (seeing that she seems to pick the wrong kind of fella herself)? Or perhaps she would thrive on MySingleFriend where her pals could look after her and set her up with someone good for a change? Perhaps we should send Cheryl a link to our dating site reviews so she could make an educated pick!
In any case, it’s an interesting thought to play with.
