Pros on internet dating
It's usually pretty easy to weed out the serious guys from the sleezy guys,and the nice thing is on Ok Cupid you can apply filters for which messages actually get sent to you and which ones go into the filtered category.
Online dating can be a very good option for someone who is looking to be in a relationship.
Online dating tends to have a negative connotation because you don't really know if the person you are talking to is really who they say they are.
A big fear associated with online dating is that the person on the other side of the computer screen talking to a seventeen year old girl is a forty year old man.
Not having to talk to an actual person allows people to feel more comfortable opening up and talking in general.
After talking for a while (I would say at least a month) you definitely do want to have a face to face meeting with the person to make sure there's chemistry.
If you’re about to dip your toe in the water, here they are: A staggering number of Americans have tried online dating, which just goes to show there must be something in it.
(Also people tend to look different from how they look in a video chat.)For me, this was always one of the biggest cons.
The guys that would message you because they were desperate or all the wanted was to have sex.
One of the advantages of dating online is for people that are shy or nervous about meeting in person, you can take some time online to get to know one another first.
But one of the downsides is that there is a little more lying and exaggerating without looking your date in the eye.
