Why you Should be Using BlackBerry Messenger for your Dating Life!



Being single and trying to find new people to meet can be quite challenging these days. There are so many options out there for helping you find someone that it gets frustrating. Online dating has been a very popular way for people to look for romance.  It’s a great way to find people even if you have a busy life. Online dating can be pretty tricky. Let’s go through the typical routine of online dating.

First, you have all these different websites and apps that give you opportunities to meet women or men that you might be romantically interested in. You have sites like Plenty of Fish (POF), OkCupid, Tinder, Match.com, Christian Mingle.com, I could probably write an entire article with just dating sites and apps listed.  Well once you start using one of or all of these website/apps you have to find people who strike you’re interested and that you have something in common with.  Once you do that you have to converse with them. Now, most of these websites have apps that allow you to take the conversation and the search on the go. If you side loads the apps they work pretty well on BlackBerry 10 and of course, if you are using the BlackBerry Priv, they are all right in the Google Play store. The problem with these apps is that there messaging services don’t really work that well on any device.  Messages are delayed or you don’t get any notifications at all.  This forces you to find another way to converse with someone.

Now early into getting to know someone most people don’t feel very comfortable in giving out their phone numbers. I mean what if you give out your number and things just don’t go on as planned? Maybe they start harassing you or are a stalker. Then you have to change your number! This takes away the option of SMS messaging and it also takes away WhatsApp.

This is where BBM comes in handy!  With BBM all you need to do is give out your BlackBerry Pin number.   Now you can keep your number private and not have to worry about it getting into the wrong hands.  Speaking of the wrong hands, if you for some reason start talking to someone who isn’t quite your liking or gets annoying, you can simply delete the person from your contact list and not have to worry about talking to them again.   With BBM, you have a ton of great features you can use to help your conversation go along, with stickers, retract messaging, and BBM Voice.  Since BBM is cross-platform you don’t have to worry about what device they are using either.   Plus you get all the added security with BBM that you won’t get with any other messaging platform.

Now don’t think that you can only use this for online dating. You can use it for when you meet someone at the bar or somewhere. When you go to leave, ask her or him to download BBM and swap pins with each other! It’s as simple as that!

If you are currently in the dating world, you should defiantly be using BBM!  It will make your experience go a lot better!  Let us know in the comments below if you use BBM for your dating life!
