What are the pros and cons of online dating

I was skeptical about online dating for a long time until I saw a lot of people were having success in finding relationships.

If you start expecting it to churn out the perfect person, you’re going to be let down. What aspects do you love and hate about online dating?

For people who are shy or have some form of anxiety, online dating provides a good alternative to still meet new people, without any sort of face to face interaction.

Not having to talk to an actual person allows people to feel more comfortable opening up and talking in general.

On the one hand, you hear horror stories of psychos and unsolicited d*** pics, and on the other hand, you personally know several couples who have met and married over the thing. You’re never reminded of the fallibility of human kind as you are when you are online dating. And don’t put stock into anything or anyone until you’ve met. The paradox of choice teaches us that the more options we have, the unhappier we are and the more paralyzed we become to choose. Sure there are lots of people online and the grass can always feel greener for another date.

And remind yourself that you just have to find one good one. At first it sounds fun to shop around for new folks, but then you get eye-strain and realize everyone sounds the same and you can’t tell if you like them. Everything in moderation — just like the good doctor tells you. There are companies like mine that take the weight off. Everybody gets rejected or neglected at one time or another online.
