Where I'm from, and most of my friends tell me, match.com and eharmony are for desperate people and those who can't get people in real life. Is Online dating considered pathetic for somebody in their early 20s? Any insight?
Most Helpful Girl
That's what I used to think until I met someone online, with no intention of things getting romantic, and found that I had a stronger, more intense connection with him than I had with over half the guys I've dated. I'm a lucky girl who's had chances with gorgeous, successful, athletic guys yet simply just didn't click with them all like that. Then the guy I click with like that, can talk to for hours, never feel the pressure to lie to be perfect or hide pieces of myself, someone who I have an effortless connection with is someone I met online online who lives in another country. So it just goes to show that when it comes to having a special type of connection, it can be found anywhere.
I also think that you really shouldn't judge. Some people who try dating sites like eharmony are, for whatever reason, intimidated by dating. Maybe they got their heart broken. Some people have really busy schedules and don't feel like they have the time to truly date so they get online and do it. You can't just judge someone and call them a loser and assume that they are pathetic for dating online.0
