Internet Dating - How Should You View It?

April 11, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 156

Long distance relationships have experienced a boost with the coming of the internet. But, are they workable? What is the future of internet dating? What is the right view of these relationships?

A Quick Look at The Past Records

Have you ever wondered why, in some cases, Facebook asks you to confirm if you have ever met someone outside the internet before adding them as your friends? If you have never met someone, you can not be sure if they are real. In the recent past, this has been used by many crooks to swindle and abduct unsuspecting internet users. On a brighter note, many people have found their suitors from the internet. These have even given positive testimonies about how they have enjoyed a happy ending.

However, an examination of the percentage of successful couples that end up getting married through the internet reveals a shockingly small number. Most of them advise that you subscribe to a trustworthy dating site if you want good results. But this has led to yet another problem. The most trustworthy sites have been faced with an influx of requests from many areas around the world. This has even eventually compromised their quality.

Facing Facts as They Are

Look at your neighborhood. If any of those ladies living in your neighborhood made a request to marry you, why wouldn't you accept? Unfortunately, those angels in the neighborhood are far much better than what you might end up with online. There is no verification mechanism that will reveal to you that the person you have been chatting with is a drug addict or a wanted criminal. It all remains in the hands of chance and trust. Therefore, when you start a relationship from scratch on the internet, you are already starting with a disadvantage of not having reliable information. You will do your best to be as honest as you can, but this will not necessarily guarantee that the other person will do the same. In fact, it has become fun for most people to switch identities online.

The Future of Online Dating

When online dating started, it was the hottest cake on the table. However, the recent years have seen a decline in the demand for online partners. With the rise in crime levels going up, the popularity is likely to continue going down. Most people have continued encouraging that you stick to the people you have physical contact with. The most possible refinement we are likely to see is that of having people meet and study each other in the real world at the start of a friendship. This can then mature into a stable relationship. At the moment, the best online services for contacting loved ones are being used by couples successfully. Use the internet with caution, especially when your personal life is involved.
