Biker dating is going to have the same highs and lows as all other sorts of dating. Biker singles are going to meet some people with whom they have tremendous compatibility. They will also meet people and start relationships that just aren’t going to work out for whatever reason. It can take people a long time to realize which category a new relationship falls into, but people will eventually know it when it happens.
Some of the people who are interested in biker dating may be under the impression that they will be able to escape a lot of the problems associated with regular dating. They may feel that dating within a subculture may allow them to meet the sort of single people that are going to think much differently than the people in mainstream culture for whatever reason.
It is true that biker dating sites are distinctly different from other dating sites in many ways. People in the biker subculture are going to have values that set them apart from the mainstream in one way or another. However, motorcycle dating is still ultimately dating with a twist. People aren’t going to encounter another world in which the rules of dating are fundamentally different and where the people think in exciting and incomprehensible ways.
A lot of young people who fall into this subculture in whatever way seem to make that mistake. Many people are drawn to the biker subculture are specifically looking for some sort of an escape, in a literal sense and a figurative sense. The people who are new to the subculture are actually going to alienate a lot of people who have been in the subculture for longer if they have those attitudes.
Some biker singles may view this as a form of colonization. They joined this subculture for their own reasons, and they are interested in dating the people who are already in the subculture for the exact same reasons. They aren’t going to be as interested in the people who joined for the sole purposes of trying to date someone ‘exciting’ and different. While there are going to be some biker singles who don’t have this attitude, a given biker single that people are going to meet online probably will, and it makes sense to try to anticipate this attitude.
People who are enthusiastic about the biker subculture should get involved with it first. They should learn about what motivates people to get involved with it. They should learn how to ride motorcycles as well as they can themselves, and they should try to develop a level of proficiency with those motorcycles. They should learn about the different types of motorcycles that are on the road today, and what separates some motorcycles from other ones.
In all likelihood, the people who approach the subculture from this angle should find themselves meeting more people anyway. They will probably at least make friends while they are there, which should certainly not be undervalued. Far too many people who get involved with online dating will feel as if they have failed if they just end up making friends with the people in question. Making friends should never be regarded as a failure: it is simply a different sort of success. Plenty of people meet their partners through their friends anyway, so making friends can be a success in many different ways.
Naturally, some people might go in the opposite direction, and they might wonder if they have enough experience in the subculture to try motorcycle dating. Biker singles often aren’t going to be too harsh on people who are new as long as they have the right attitude. If they are adventurous and interested in learning more, that can be fine. Every person in any subculture was new at some point or another.
Biker dating isn’t going to involve any sort of rigorous screening process to weed out the true believers from the pretenders. There will be biker singles who take the subculture far more seriously than others. There will also be biker singles who take the whole thing very casually. Some people are going to need to more or less shop around and ask around in order to find which group of people will be right for them.
