Online dating can be a con when the relationship only exists online and doesn’t include any physical or face-to-face interaction.
Psychologists warn “computer-mediated communication may have an artificial and unemotional quality since it can be harder to evaluate a potential match online where you cannot pick up on cues and features that build attraction, like touching.” We are living in a digital age and with so many social sites and dating apps, there are many ways to meet and build relationships online.
Dating sites and apps were most popular among younger internet users - 14 percent of U. internet users aged 18 to 34 years were currently using dating sites or apps and a further 29 percent had done so previously.
Almost half of online dating users had very or somewhat positive experiences with online dating.
If you’re interested in a particular type, orientation, and lifestyle or live in a rather isolated area, online dating gives you access to more potential partners.
