How do you feel about online dating?
Most Helpful Guy
There is nothing wrong with online dating. Many people do have their qualms, but it is a relatively new medium, and people always fuss over the new. Fact is, human interaction is gaining a greater presence digitally. Online dating is simply an extension of this phenomenon. Online dating removes a lot of the "hit-and-miss" of dating by matching you with people sharing similar interests. As far as relationships go, there is no difference in quality between those who meet people the old fashioned way, and those who meet online (the exception being your "How did you guys meet?" story will likely not be so romantic).
A lot of the stigma surrounding online dating stems from either the older generations, having trouble acclimating to the new medium of dating, or the younger generations raised by television, where sitcoms mocked online dating. So yes, there will be those who think that online dating requires desperation and shows weakness, but that is just ill-informed tripe from those who refuse to accept the direction social interactions is heading.
All that said, I have never personally tried online dating and don't know what to actually expect; however, if quality of matches is a concern, I know a few people who do use online dating and they have no huge flaws of character and are at least mildly attractive.
Note: These are people in their early twenties. I cannot account for other age groups.0
