Well it all depends what your looking for, both sites will have something on
offer. At the adult sites you can expect to find lots of sex and erotic chat rooms, webcams, lots
of gay, lesbian and bisexual
swinger couples. At the mainstream dating sites you can expect to find sex,
romance and relationship seekers. It is less common to find a serious
relationship on a full blown adult dating site but we do see 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 perverted replies
from guys who are just after a casual fling every time so you must be aware. In
contrast you do see quite a few girls advertise for guys and making a point of
“not looking for anything serious” It’s not uncommon or unusual.
The other big shift we are seeing is the community nature of the sites coming
into play, more and more people are using a dating website as place to hangout
rather than getting out to a regualr venue. I am not sure how healthy this is
but it is happening and as the new generation comes through it will only become
more common. We are also seeing a further fragmentation of the “dating industry”
into niche groups of people with like minded interests.
So the question is easy to answer - the adult dating site is going to be more
of an adventure ride and the mainstream romance / relationship dating sites are
more community contact find true love and romance / meet a friend / penpal. At
the end of the day it is yoru choice as long as you go in knowing what to expect
from each type site.
