Internet dating=Cyber sex, a million lame and unmeant " I love you's" and if by chance you DO meet it rarely works out.


Basically I don't believe in it.

Internet dating is meant to be for an introduction... Why do so many want to try to develop a relationship here beofre meeting?

Then it's not called internet dating, it's just called talking to people online.

That's why you don't fall for anyone you've never met.

Exactly!! It is foolish to fall in love online, you only set yourself up fro heartbreak. It is very rare to fall in love online and then actually be in love when you meet them. They only way you'll know if you have chemistry is to meet. So don't delay meet and you'll save yourself a lot of time!!

One of the worst that I have heard of what that a woman spent months emailing make and fforth to a man over seas. They spoke on the phone for hours. Months past by and she fall in love with him. She wanted to go to Scotland to meet him,
he kept comming up with excuses. Bottomline the guy strung her along for over a year and she had put her live on hold for him. It cost her over a year of her life.

THE GOOD
I myself don't consider it Internet date, I consider it an extinction of getting to know other people near or far, possible meeting new friend's, passing time verses watching the TV when choosing to spend time at home, possible encounter that special, compatible, partner one may be seeking to grow with and share with in life...

THE BAD
Hearing all the stories of how others play with ones heart and mind,
How ugly people really are out in this world!
How so many people feel the need to lie,be fake, phony and perceive themselves to be someone they are not.
How other's feel's that someone in the sex that burn them should pay the consequences for someone else's action's!
Photo's of them when they are 20 year's younger! Like if u should meet that person they will not acknowledge it? r u kidding me? what they will or should acknowledge is that u started off with a lie! ( been there myself with someone that road 8oo miles to see me and when i saw the person i said"" there is a problem" they said " yes i know" and I said "i said from the very beginning if i catch you in a lie I AM DONE WITH YOU! his "correct" I purchased him a drink and said glad ya made it safe , enjoy your drink and I left! (cold in your mind?) possible, cold in mine HELL NO! if a person can lie about their looks then only god knows what else they lied about, trust is given in moderate portions just like respect the rest is earned!....especially when u inform the person a head of time and they continue to lie to ya until you meet them only to discover they are a lire!
Hearing on the news, reading in the paper how someone killed themselves because they believed in someone on the Internet, gave their heart to them, shared their personal life and encounters only to find out they were nothing more then filling them up with bullchit, married, a different sex.
how someone could put their heart into a computer use to be totally insane to me. but I believe everyone who has been on line will do that at least once, I myself am guilty of doing it ! threw talking with someone for many months you begin a friendship, the more you talk and share, the more the interest becomes, the more the interest becomes stronger the more your heart seems to have gotten involved, once that happens you make plans to meet, sadly either that meeting time never arrives because there is always an excuse, or the truth comes out that they are married or in a committed relationship, or that they are telling other the same bullchit....I JUST DON'T GET IT!!! why can't people just be truthful about what they are seeking, there status, look's and in communication?
