Four Reasons Why Shopping For Your Range Hood Online Is Like Online Dating

Range hood shopping can easily be compared to online dating. Much like online dating, it seems like you spend more time flipping through your options than actually getting to know your potential suitors – which can lead you to think, “will I ever find the perfect range hood?” 

Just like online dating will eventually, somehow, lead you to your person, online shopping can lead you to your range hood. Since Valentine’s day is right around the corner, and love is in the air, we came up with four ways that shopping online for your range hood is like online dating. 

1. It sometimes begins with a lie - about their height

For some reason, lying about your height is the cool thing to do now, until you meet the person in real life and are heartbroken to find that your 6’2”, dark-haired lover is in fact 5’6” – that’s a big difference and a potential deal breaker for some! It would be like scheduling a date with Yao Ming (7’6”) and then he shows up and is actually the same height as Zach Galifianakis (5′ 7”) – the disappointment! 

And let’s face it, when a relationship starts off with lies, there will likely be more that follow.  

Range hoods can also be misleading in this aspect. Shopping from simply a photo is not the way to go when it comes to range hood shopping.

In today’s world, it seems like everything is photoshopped to some degree, and that does not exclude range hoods. So, when it comes to range hood shopping we always recommend checking the measurements and then checking them again! Also, going through real customer reviews will usually give you a good idea of if the hoods are true to size – and other potential flaws.

2. Say goodbye to the club scene!

Perhaps one of the best things about online shopping, and dating, is that you can usually do it wrapped up in a blanket, with a messy bun, sweatpants on, and a glass of wine.

The same is true for range hoods! You don’t need to put on your cutest outfit, do your hair, and/or your make-up – and perhaps the best thing, no high heels involved! The beauty of shopping online for your range hood is that you can do it from anywhere; on the couch, in the bathtub, at lunch. Perks of online shopping are that the products are available 24/7 and you can really get to know your range before you commit! 

3. You can test the waters and play the field

One good thing about online dating is that you can see all your options before making a decision. You can go through your potential suitors and find those with your desired qualities, before you take the next step. Now, we are not saying go out there and start breaking hearts left and right! 

Most people are dating to find their partner, the person you will spend the rest of your life with, and dating to find your forever partner requires a time commitment, and usually a financial commitment, so playing the field is somewhat important. 

This is also the same for range hood shopping. When you decide to purchase a range hood, you are not thinking, “Oh this is just temporary,” it is likely an investment and one that will remain a staple in your home for years to come. So play the field, look around, get to know each potential range hood before you make a commitment.

4. Save Time and Money

Traditional dating is an exhausting game. On top of your already busy schedule, you have to plan the date; pick the place, time, drum up potential topics – and have an escape plan in place in case things don’t go well. 

Online dating takes some of that pressure away. Nowadays you can have your first date via Facetime or Zoom all from the comfort of your own home – and if it goes well, you can plan an in person date, or you can easily get away from the date. 

Online range hood shopping is similar. You can browse selections on your own time and there are no long lines, no traffic jams, or costly gas bills – just you, your laptop (or phone), and little images of potential range hoods.

So if you found yourself shopping for a range hood and thought, “this seems a lot like online dating!” You are not alone! Or, if you feel like you’re in a rut or will never find the one, don’t give up, because much like you can find a potential soulmate via online dating, you can also find your range hood ‘soulmate’!
