Downfalls of internet dating
Online dating is also faster than waiting for your best friend to fix you up with her cousin, or someone from her yoga class.
One woman told me that she loves dating a guy who lives close by because she can see him almost any time she wants without a "big production." Another convenience of online dating is that you don't have to leave your house to get a date; kinda like Netflix® don't ya think?In fact, one woman admonished him for not posting a picture: "If I have to put one up there you should to," she said.Online dating is also convenient, or I should say as convenient as you'd like it to be.Makes sense; it's easier to endure rejection from afar rather than have someone laugh directly in your face.FYI: my female clients claim that it‘s a must for a woman to have a terrific picture to get online attention but it's not as important for a man to have one.So the "bar scene" is the only alternative to online dating you can think of?
I met my wife in college -- you know, while going about my daily business. My brother-in-law met his wife through an online dating site. I agree with the comment above: pretty lazy article -- a subject not hardly worth fussing over in the first place, with a few, poor arguments against it thrown in at the end. Can we get over the old, sophomoric lamentation of the internet being a scary modern phenomenon that's making everything too easy and too fast?
This makes sense in part, because men tend to be more visual.
But I do have a friend who refuses to post a picture for professional reasons and he rarely gets any reponses.
No need to drop a pound or two and drag yourself to a Happy Hour or a meet-up group.
Nope; just a couple of taps on your keyboard and presto: Janine appears on your screen to tell you that she loves to laugh, isn't needy, loves her children more than life itself, and can find time to fit you into her mind-boggling schedule.
Relationships should be less predictable and worth waiting for.
