When the internet first spawned consumer based communities like America Online, there was an immediate draw to social aspects of the new medium like forum systems, chat rooms and the like. Along with the gold rush of early adopters seeking love online, a long list of challenges were uncovered for specific niches of the new digital communities. Stories of harassment or false identity were especially prevalent in chat rooms intended to satisfy Women Seeking Women, where men posing as women and heterosexual hecklers muddied the waters by passing around fake photos and pretending to be people they weren’t for the cheap thrill of fooling unwitting lesbian ladies new to online dating. Fortunately that has all changes as the internet continue to evolve and the world of lesbian dating online is becoming increasingly popular among women seeking a new romance or potential life partner.
The essential problem with early variations of chat room dating and online communities was the mistake of lumping everyone into a single interface and expecting people to sort themselves accurately. Now, with a collection of sites specifically designed to accommodate Women Seeking Women, and a savvy community vetting new members as they become better known to veterans of the online lesbian dating pool – ladies are finding the online experience to be much more rewarding.
“I’ve visited plenty of online dating sites, from the ones you see on television all the time to really clandestine websites hardly anyone has ever heard of and learned a lot along the way” said Sandy, an avid lesbian dating site enthusiast. “For me, the biggest thing has been the move by online communities to seek a niche audience. It never made any sense to have chat rooms full of men, women, BDSM role-players, religious advocates and whoever else felt like logging into the same conversations. Sites like ChristianMingle, JDate and GirlfriendsMeet.com do a terrific job of helping like-minded people find each other by keeping the pool of participants much closer aligned to a shared point of view.
These days, whatever your own interests may be, there is a dating community out there specifically designed to satisfy you by helping you find others who share those same sentiments. That is especially good news for communities like Women Seeking Women who have been marginalized online in the past but found a vibrant digital home with lesbian specific communities like Girlfriends Meet ready to welcome women back to what socializing on the web was always meant to be like.
