Is cell phone dating the new craze?

Posted by Ria, 22 Aug 07

phone.JPGImagine flirting with someone in all the right AND wrong places ;-) … Now, that is mobile dating for you! Could this be the next big leap in online dating?

Chatrooms and instant messaging have been a big hit lately… especially for those looking for love. With the advent of 3G phones, mobile dating may just be the next craze in the online dating world. Cell phones now come loaded with cameras, internet connections and clear color display. This will allow those interested to send and receive photos and IMs and scrutinize prospective partners. Picture this… a picture taken a few seconds ago then sent to your phone! I don’t even want to imagine how that can be utilized to ones advantage… ;-)

Just like online dating has gained favor with Internet-savvy singles, with more people becoming more dependent on cell phones, mobile dating is catching on don’t you think? And although cell phones are still a step behind computers in terms of ease of use, we cannot ignore the world of opportunities that they open up just coz of their portability. Texting adds a whole new dimension to dating and relationships. It’s all about capitalizing on people’s “playful attitude᾿ towards their cell phones.

Your perfect partner could be online right now...

What are you looking for?

The fact that you can do it all from virtually anywhere makes it more appealing. Much as it is something to think about, do you think its private enough? How is anonymity maintained?

    For all of the good technology reaps, it also destroys relationships.

    Hi everybody, Can somebody suggest me a better online destination where I can buy Blackberry & Jabra Bluetooth Headset and Battery at prices well-below retail. However, I searched the web and find the resources i.e. http://www.topestore.com http://www.latest-beauty-tips.com http://www.safeshoppe.com where the prices are comparatively low. Please suggest if you have some other better resources. Robert Williams

    I never heard of this. I mean between emails, IM texting, dating is starting to turn into a hand free relationship. I miss the old fashioned way of doing things.

    Darn Skippy, Cell Phone dating is the new craze. It also is the new weapon of choice. Foxy Brown and Naomi Campbell both have , current and prior convictions for cell phone assault. Just a lesson, if you date over the cell, you might get popped upside your skully , with your celly.

    You're right, Ria - Cell phone dating blows the anonymity we enjoy on dating sites away and can thus be misused by creeps and spammers. A disturbing thought is that cell phone spam costs us our purchased minutes but the spammer nothing. I find the abbreviations used in cell phones in places they shouldn't be, more commonly and that is irksome. On the other hand, I've used text messaging for romantic notes, directions to a restaurant and even making a date, though we talked first. I take a perverse pride in writing well with my text messaging. C U L8R!

    Haha! That's a new one... But unsurprising just the same. I'm guilty of text messaging like a fiend, as are most other people my age (20's) with cell phones.

    It's just another form of instant messenger so I guess it makes sense.
