Creating and Coding Dating Sites - Catching Up With the New Trend

A lot of transformation has been observed in the dating trend lately. The concept of dating or getting to know a person before marriage is comparatively new in some countries. Prior to this, people used to opt for the conventional form of marriage, it has been quite some time since people have started taken dating as a casual thing. This trend was kept restricted to urban areas for almost a decade but slowly people in less-posh or rural areas started catching up with this new trend, breaking the shackles of old mentality and norms.

Not before long when dating was still considered to be an awkward and less favorable activity, people living in urban area started taking about it. Back then, there were very few ways to get to know a person and even lesser places to take a person on a date. It was comparatively easy for people belonging to upper middle class or higher class to go on dates as there were still options for them to move around and spend time with their boyfriends and girlfriends. But for middle class citizens searching for a partner or place to date, this predicament was a hard nut to crack. In that time, people could be found hiding in parks and some secluded hotels to keep themselves off the eyes of the society. Slowly the mentality of people broadened and society started accepting the concept of dating. This concept of dating evolved and with time it transformed completely. Decades ago people faced problems in meeting people and finding places, now they have so many options that it leaves them confused and often leads them into uncanny situations. In this frenzy people have taken and online approach of meeting people. The concept is known as online dating. People now get hooked on the dating sites.

What has This got to do With Programming and Coding?

I’ve recently been thinking about coding a dating site and uploading it online to see if it can become popular and attract any visitors. This will just be a side project, but I believe It’s going to be a fun thing to do. I will try to keep you all updated on how it progresses. I’m getting a bit tired working on the other stuff that I’ve been doing for a pretty long time now, so I believe this could be a nice change and bring some variety. Maybe it will work out nicely, and maybe I’ll get tired of this in a couple of days, only time will tell. I’ve been studying other sites like this through a page that I found and plan on building something similar to this.

Concept of Online Dating:

Restaurants and hub-places offer people places to meet and these dating sites help people in meeting new individuals. There are thousands of websites that allow you to meet people online and they are made especially for this purpose. A person has to create an online identity or a profile on these sites and they are all set to meet new people. Creating the profile includes adding information about oneself, adding your interest areas, a picture of you as a person, that’s not mandatory though. When a profile is created, it is made available for everyone to see on that dating site, people can contact other persons if they find them interesting or if their profile seems good and genuine to them. They can send request to them and then the whole process of online dating begins.

Disadvantages of Online Dating:

Online dating, though easy, runs on certain disadvantages. You can never validate the identity of a person and knowing if a person you are talking to is genuine is very hard or next to impossible. People often get hooked up to fake profiles and then suffer undesirable consequences. As every coin has two faces, dating online is entertaining yet risky to follow.



Dog Steps For My Bed

As some of you may already know (I assume the majority of readers here at this time are my real world friends), I have a small Yorkshire Terrier. He never barks, but gets a bit restless while he’s sleeping. Specially now during summer, when the temperature in my room gets very high. I let him sleep in the same bed as me, so far I haven’t had any tics that crawled over to me, and I hope that won’t change in the future (fingers crossed). But because of the heat, Oscar (the name of my dog) has been wanting to change positions every half-hour, or jump down on the cool floor. But then after cooling off for a few minutes, he wants to jump up in bed again. This has become quite a problem for me because my bed is pretty tall, and he’s not able to go neither up nor down by himself, so I have to wake up every time and carry him. I don’t mind carrying him, but when it’s that often, and I have to be able to wake up the next morning and go to work.

Yorkshire Terrier

But now I’ve finally found a solution. I was thinking that maybe there is some kind of ladder I could buy that is adapted for dogs. This wasn’t the case, but I found something even better. There are steps available that are created to be used just for the purpose I needed. These dog steps for bed comes in different heights and sizes, and I even managed to find one that worked well with my own bed (which is unusually tall). It was a bit of a paint though, to figure out which dimensions were needed, and which one was the best. There is a site called The Little Windup Pup that has a list of dog steps for bed, which helped me choose. And I’m happy with my decision, even though there are several other sites with dog products that seems very good.

At first Oscar was a bit hesitant to use this new contraption, but after trying it out and walking up and down a few times, he seemed very comfortable with it. I was a bit worried that he it would be too steep for him, but there hasn’t been a any problems yet, and the construction is very sturdy. My second concern was that the dog stairs would glide around because my floor can be very slippery, but that was nothing to worry about, because of the anti-slip pads that is attached underneath. At least now, I’m able to get a full nights sleep even if he wants to go down on the floor for a while.

Even though this has helped us both a lot. I might still look into buying some kind of aircondition to use in my bedroom. If I think it’s hot, I can only imagine how it would feel for a dog with all that fur. I haven’t been able to find an affordable option yet, but according to some forums I read, there should be something in the pricerange I’m looking at. It’s difficult to even go for walks with Oscar in this heat, and we both get tired after only a few minutes in the sun.
