My guy friends (also educated, attractive) complain that they get no responses and female acquaintences tell me that they get so many emails, etc, that they don’t know where to start-and often do nothing.
They don’t have time to “date around” several times a week.(actually neither would I). Women, being more vulnerable than men, are more hesitant to date online, so you get a situation where there’s a lot more men than women.
Most of the people that write about online dating write about what’s wrong with it. I mean, that’s what news is – emphasize the bad, misery loves company, etc.
Turn on the TV and it’s not about kittens being saved from trees, but drive-by shootings.
Even if you do, ofcourse you first interact online and then meet. For, in these bonds, no real meetings and interactions takes place at the primary level. We bond when we meet someone over a period of time, spend time talking together and being with each other in person. You may be very greatly bonded with someone you have hardly met. It involves not just emotional but also physical, mental and spiritual space.
Until you are physically comfortable, mentally bonded, and psychologically understand each other, a relationship cannot go a long way.
I was curious as to what your real opinion is of online dating.
Many people find it frustrating, time-consuming, and just overall – not that efficient.
With social networking sites becoming a rage, online dating has been one major phenomenon that has caught the trend. How far can we really go with someone we meet online? Though, its demerits rise above on the balance beam.
Traditionally, women might have had one or two boyfriends before getting married; now, they are encouraged to date lots of people in a quest to find a perfect partner.
With an unlimited number of other people on offer via the internet, there’s little incentive to work it out if things get tough.
