Recently over personal issues about online dating I decided to swore off online dating. So I decided to make a myTake over the pros and cons of online dating.
Pro: You have more options
Since everyone is online its easier to meet people than before and now it's harder to meet people for dating. At events (bars are useless, you can't even talk to someone while music is pounding at a club, it's too awkward to confront someone outside etc). Online is just a easier way to find more people because everyone is online and its easier to connect to someone.
Con: Having more options = Connecting to the losers, bad apples of the dating world etc.
If you haven't notice on a dating website chances are you have probably met a piece of shit on there. That's the problem too many bad apples on dating sites, while your options are amazing, chances are you more likely to meet douches muitple times on your dating adventure then anything else. That can just ruin the experience as a whole.
Pro: Most dating websites can be free
Free dating websites are big plus for people who can't afford a matchmaker or professional wing man or woman. Anything free is always amazing because of the price (nothing).
Con: Usually these free websites are crap
Also these free dating websites will make it so its free to sign up but to connect or make it easily for you to date someone they make it 1000x times harder until they offer you to pay a fee to make it easily for you. Business BS in the love world.
Con: Catfishes, fake profiles, scammers
Not much to say about this since on every dating website there will be these type of people sure you meet a catfish, a scammer, someone who fake offline but the chances are for a scammer is:
1. They use online and phones now a days and they are usually in Africa or India, for a catfish.
2. Usually they change their appearances online and they can't offline and for someone who fake.
3. Usually the truth will come out and the shit storm will hit them once they been caught lying.
Pro: You can meet someone amazing off a dating website and have your happy ending
My last point will be is there still a chance that you can find someone it might take a while even years to find them but you still have that chance.
But since our world is now around techonology I want the traditional approach of falling in love and that is meeting face to face and making a connect over time that way.
Have a nice day!
