Online Dating has changed the way many people meet new people. But has it made dating better?


While online dating has become they way more people meet and connect it also is full of "Vipers" who prey on lonely people. People are being conned out of money and more. And even worse many, many people are getting their hearts broken by people they don't even know and some by people they have never met. You can be anyone you want on the Internet. Have you ever been "Catfished"? The new term for being deceived by someone online you may have developed feelings for.

    The difference on the Internet is you add pictures, FB profiles that appear to be real, phone calls are less expensive to make & more that can make a person appear to be more desirable & authentic. Thanks for your input. Dee

    I don't know why people think its okay fool around with pictures and the truth. There is always a chance you might make an effort to meet them in person. If the true objective is to find someone. Thanks for adding your voice. Dee

    I agree it's just another option for single people to meet others! The more options one has to meet others the better their odds improve of finding someone compatible. Online dating doesn't replace other ways of meeting. It's another item on the menu

    Amen! There was a time people were afraid to use their credit cards to make online purchases. Today everyone I know of has bought something or reserved hotels using their cc. Online dating is here to stay. Like you I say avoid the free/cheap sites!

    Yes and the goal should be to grow to the point of seeing one another and spending time. How else do you get to know someone? Nothing beats a hug, holding hands and a good old fashioned kiss to know if what you feel is really "real". Dee

    Part of the "arsenal" is a great way to think of it. So glad to hear a few great story's of people meeting and working it out. Some work so many hours hanging out in the right places isn't an option. Thanks for sharing. Dee

    A lot of marriages are happening between people that met online. In addition older busy professionals aren't likely to do the nightclub or other single's scene like the youth. Online dating sites provides them with a proactive way of meeting others.

    So true. It does seem to move too quickly. It feels intimate prematurely. Good advice. Dee
