Internet Dating: Is it worth the effort?

As the Internet as grown, more and more people are seeing the Internet as a means of meeting people, not only in their local areas, but also overseas. The idea of being able to communicate with people from home is a big plus for many verses the days when I was dating 20+ years ago when you had to go out to a party or other event to try to meet people. The idea of meeting people from other countries, even leading to marriage, is not so uncommon today. So, what do you thing are the advantages and disadvantages of online dating? Are there limitations to starting a relationship that way? What are some possible dangers? Share your ideas and experiences on this topic.

  1. Actually, online dating seems to be a trendy of the world. But it's both have advantages and disadvantages. In fact , I think disadvantages are more than advantages. For example, you don't know the real character of the person who you dating with online; your custom is very different so it will bring much problem..etc. sure, there are some possible dangers will happen, like as be swindled money .

  2. Even though I know some people who met someone through the internet and got married and they says they are so happy now, it's still reported that terrible crimes sometimes happen like fraud, kidnapping or murder, and they very often meet by the dating site. A woman who is really into the dating site on the internet said she never tells her home address until she has met the man ten times. It depends on how important you think of protecting yourself. But how do you know if he might change after telling your address? But it might be the same if you meet him at a party. Maybe you should believe your sense of choosing the right person.

  3. I think it's ok to meet people over the Internet, but it takes time to get to know someone. So, I wouldn't suggest people rush into a relationship just after a few days of chatting. I myself have met lots of nice people in chat rooms, but just a few of them I felt like meeting because I was quite sure they were not pretending to be somebody else.

  4. Everything in this world has advantages and disadvantages, what we need to focus on is that we should think positive and expect good with the care that no one can take us so easily.

    With open eyes and active mind you will never let anyone to harm/hurt you.

    So be careful while talking to people over internet and dont hurt anyone's feelings...

    Wish you good luck
