Mainstream Dating or Adult?
Well It depends what your looking for but in general both sites will have
something on offer. At the adult sites you can expect to find sex and erotic
chat rooms, webcams, lots
of gay, lesbian and bisexual
type members as well as
At the mainstream sites you can expect to find sex and relationship types. It is
less common to find a serious relationship on a full blown adult site but we do
see some people looking…
The point is there is cross over from one to the other, I’ve seen women
looking for relationships - long term type on adult sites and I just think no
way your in the wrong place. Your going to get hammered with replies from guys
who are just after a casuald fling every time so you must be kidding yourself.
In contrast you do see quite a few girls advertise for guys and making a point
of “not looking for anything serious or long term” It’s not uncommon.
The other shift we are seeing is the community nature of the sites coming
into play, more and more people are using a website as a hangout rather than
getting out to a regualr venue. Not sure how healthy this is but it is happening
and as the new generation comes through it will only become more common. We may
see a further fragmentation of the “dating industry” into niche groups of people
with like minded interests.
So the question is pretty easy to answer - the adult site is going to be more
of an adventure ride and the mainstream sites are more community contact find
true love and romance. At the end of the day it is yoru choice as long as you go
in knowing what to expect from each site. One thing is for sure your going to
find lots of grey areas in between.
