Debate about online dating
You can think for example about the MTV show 'Catfish', they rarely are who they claim to be.
It's not exactly online dating, but there is still something about relationships online and above all, the trustworthiness of them.
On the other hand however, speaking for the people who do have time on their hands and are younger(?
- just assuming), it is perhaps better to start a relationship based on friendship for example.
People resort to online dating for a variety of purposes, ranging from casual sex to marriage.
I am interested in your opinion on what impact you think internet dating has had on our society, either positive or negative.
The real kicker for these relationships is that they actually last longer than offline ones ( in some studies.
It seems contradictory, but I'm still living in the times where I feel like going to a bar and meeting someone has a charm that online dating doesn't.
I'm not sure if online dating websites are very effective, but if it all does what it says, than it is very positive.
I still think that the process of someone falling in love with another will always be the same, but it can all change in the future (how people think about relationships). Makes single life become more interesting because all the kinds of dating activities organized by internet dating. Marriage (hopefully) becomes more stable because they select their partner from much larger candidates pool compared with before. First the ability to socialize face to face is decreasing do to the fact that one can hid behind a laptop, screen, etc.
Online dating has become a common way to meet both romantic and sexual partners for many (Heino, Ellison, & Gibbs, 2010).
There are now more ways than ever to initiate and maintain relationships over the internet, and online dating websites form a large part of these.
