It is exciting and fun to meet new people by way of the Internet and it can be challenging as well.
Let’s look at both the pros and the cons of dating using the Internet as the medium for initial contact and communication.
I’ve never been one to hang out at bars, so I decided to give online dating a whirl.
My free time, however, is at a premium, considering that I work a full-time day job and run two side businesses from home. – An errant hand around your shoulder or a side of a face: What kind of person crops their best buddy out of a picture? Con: So we’re at the point now where everybody does it, right? Our entire lives are spent with our nose in a screen, and 90% of us at least have a dormant Friendster profile. Con: Do you have time to deal with that one guy that you went out with that one time, and is now phone/email/Twitter/Facebook stalking you? Spending an entire Sunday hungover, in sweats, on the couch, eating Mexican/Chinese/Italian, talking to your girlfriends about what happened last night and scrolling through dating profiles. No matter how good your profile is, your picture is eleventythousand more times important. This is what they’re saying inside when they look at your picture: – If taken in the bathroom mirror: is the line for on-line dating. – ECU of a single feature: You’re hiding something. Stare until his image is burned into your brain, and feel free to imagine if he’ll go well with that sundress you just bought, and in your passenger seat, and with your faces squished together in a photo booth. Pro: Great alternative for those who don’t have time to go out every night in the hopes of “meeting someone” (blech).Potential dates used to be a real crap-shoot and chances weren't always good that you would roll a winner.Having a guaranteed variety of choices is a wonderful change from the old days of dating when it used to be hard just to meet people in general let alone to meet potential partners.3. With the Internet and all of the information it can provide, those so-called "first date jitters" will be no more.
