The Pros and Cons of Cyber-dating

with No Comments

The Pros:  It’s immediate, convenient and cheap.  You get to know basic information about your dates before you meet them in person.  You have access to thousands of people and can narrow your search by criteria.  You can learn to speak of and describe yourself kindly which reinforces a positive self image.

The Cons:  The biggest con is also one of the most appealing parts of online dating.  You can be anybody you want to be and so can he or she.  Studies mentioned in The Wall Street Journal state that “30% of online dating site visitors are married and countless others misrepresent themselves.”  Not exactly what you signed up for, huh?  You’ll find more than your fair share of untruths online, so don’t believe everything you read or see.
