Debate about online dating
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.
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.
Maybe we rely to much on technology nowadays and all search for that perfect guy or girl. Expectations are often beyond realistically possible. People are getting shallower and shallower as to what they want in the other person, extremely good looks, high incomes, some one "very" local.
Manners have gone out the door, rudeness and disrespect thrive on anonymity. We live in a society that is communicating with people online already, why not dating online as well?!
Online dating has become a common way to meet both romantic and sexual partners for many (Heino, Ellison, & Gibbs, 2010).
But let us start with advantages: I guess it's easier for people who have a busy schedule to find a significant other via this medium. They may be too tired to join parties or get-together because of a hectic lifestyle and therefore the dating websites might be a good solution for them to check out.Of course, it is not necessary for it to happen, many people's feelings do not go farther than a friendship.Also, there is a certain entourage that surround people that you meet (and who raise your interest) while having a casual drink with a group.You are right, online dating is indeed more popular around the age of 35.The older generation is much less inclined to hang in a bar all night to flirt and possibly meet someone interesting.
