Sticking to traditional dating definitely means that you are limited in your choices.

While the internet offers a broad sphere for finding a match, traditional way significantly narrows your choices by limiting you geographically and often confining you to your existing social circles. It's impossible to know as much about a person before a date when you're not scouring their online profile for their personal interests and goals.

You can search by religion, hobbies, pets, personalities and sometimes even things like how neat and tidy or sloppy other people are.

This can be difficult amid our busy schedules when our professional lives dominate our personal lives, and can sometimes call for some awkwardness when attempting to strike up a conversation with a stranger.

It also can result in unwanted attention from strangers who may just be looking to hookup rather than date.

It can be increasingly easier to determine if there is an instant chemistry with the person if you meet them in person right away, versus if you're interacting with them through a computer screen.

If you've met someone offline, it is likely that you share a mutual friend or two with this person.

You can’t count on the fact that your boss has seen his or her resume or that you’re best friend’s significant other has known him or her since high-school. You will go into your first face-to-face dating with expectations that you formed yourself, trusting no one’s judgment but your own.

Of course, the impression you’ve formed can still be far off from reality.

Meeting that person in a traditional public setting takes away from the worry of potential lies and misleading that can happen via the internet.

Traditional dating is ideal for those who prefer to surround themselves with people in social settings, rather than sit behind a computer screen.

This can make the game more comfortable, allowing a sense of familiarity and common interest to make it easier to connect without awkwardness.
