Lots of Chummy Club members aren’t looking to pick out china patterns just yet. Instead of settling down with a soulmate, getting married, and having 2.5 kids, a dog, and a white picket fence, they simply want to find friends online!
Unlike other dating sites, Chummy Club isn’t just focused on romantic relationships. Whether you’ve just moved to a new town or you just want to expand your social life, it’s easy to find friends online. Just follow these 3 tips:
1. Don’t confuse “friends” with “friends with benefits”
If you’re simply trying to find friends online, make that clear in the beginning. There are plenty of people who use our social networking services who want a purely platonic relationship — not just a random hookup.
2. Use all of our tools
Here at Chummy Club, you’ll get an email every day with matches we’ve selected for you, based on the results of your compatibility test. But don’t stop there! We’ve got a big Facebook and Twitter network that can help you find friends that don’t necessarily match you in a romantic way — but can still be great people to get to know.
3. Keep the same safety precautions in mind
If you were looking for love online, you wouldn’t give out your phone number or meet someone in person until you felt comfortable. Looking for friends online is no different. Just because there’s no romance involved doesn’t mean you can let your guard down.
As much as we love our members, we also encourage them to be realistic. You have to get to know someone before you can trust them. That’s why we offer so many ways to communicate right here on the site — so that you don’t have to give out information that you don’t want to. That way, you can find online friends in a safe, secure way!
In the years since Chummy Club began, I’ve seen a lot of people find love online — while other people have made big mistakes. If you’re looking for true love online, these tips can help you get it. And, they’ll help you through each step of the online dating process — so that you never have to “fly blind”.
1. Be creative — without being dishonest
A creative profile name or a profile picture taken at a creative angle can fetch more attention than a profile that looks just like everyone else’s. However, don’t let your creativity get in the way of the facts. Using a photo of you from 10 years ago is dishonest — not creative.
Same goes for the information in your profile. No one’s going to think you’re creative when you list “Corporate Executive” on your profile when you’re really the Executive Secretary. Instead, they’re going to think you’re a liar — and liars don’t find love online!
2. Break the ice
Once you start talking to a match, throw in some fun questions, like “If you could be any fictional character, who would you be?” Questions like these help you get to know someone, while also seeing if you can have fun with them. Remember, finding love online is all about chemistry. If you and a match can’t have a fun conversation, there’s no “spark” there — and you need to keep looking.
3. Follow your gut
Knowing how to find love online means knowing how to listen to your gut. Generally, you gut can tell pretty quickly whether someone’s right for you. If you’re getting a “funny” feeling about a match, don’t ignore it!
Free Online Dating — It Really Is Possible!
Most people are shocked when they hear that Chummy Club is a completely free online dating service. Some of them, though, are also a little skeptical. They wonder how good an online dating site can be if you don’t have to pay for it.
Luckily, free online dating services are becoming more and more common — and they don’t force members to settle for less-than-stellar service!
For example, here at Chummy Club, we offer the same services as those expensive online dating services. Our compatibility test was created by a unique team of a psychologist, a psychiatrist, and a social worker. We use the latest trends — like Facebook and Twitter — to help our members get to know each other. And, we offer daily emails that are chock full of new matches.
Plus, we offer several advantages BECAUSE we’re a free online dating service — that the expensive dating sites can’t give you — like:
– Access to more people
Since it’s free to sign up, more people are likely to join a free online dating service — because there’s no risk for them. That way, you can wind up with a bigger selection of matches than you’ll find on one of the expensive dating sites.
– Free access to new friends
Maybe you just moved to a new town and don’t know how to meet people. The last thing you want is to pay a ton of money to an online dating site just to make a few friends. But when you take advantage of a free online dating service, you can find people right in your neighborhood that are looking for new friends of their own!
– A great alternative for single parents
There are lots of single parents out there who want to get out and have a social life — but don’t have any extra money to spend on an online dating site membership. Thanks to a free online dating service, they can start anew!
