Pros and cons of dating
If you start expecting it to churn out the perfect person, you’re going to be let down. What aspects do you love and hate about online dating?
A recent survey suggests that men irrespective of their age want to date women in their mid 20s.
If the findings of the survey are to be believed, even older men in their 40s, 50s, or 60s prefer to date women much younger than them.
There was a time when the society didn’t accept relationships between older men and younger women; however, now things have changed significantly and such relationships have become pretty common.
And remind yourself that you just have to find one good one. At first it sounds fun to shop around for new folks, but then you get eye-strain and realize everyone sounds the same and you can’t tell if you like them. Everything in moderation — just like the good doctor tells you. There are companies like mine that take the weight off. Everybody gets rejected or neglected at one time or another online.
The solution: Just expect it, practice safety and take it for what it is.
Online dating is a spoke-in-the-wheel to help you find them.
The bottom line is if you view online dating as a way to introduce yourself to people you may not meet otherwise, it will always come out as a benefit.
The solution: Until then, keep your expectations in check. Hope to make a new friend who can teach you a thing or two. Matchmakers cost thousands of dollars, even as much as ,000. You’re a catch and you’re looking online, so it’s plausible your counterpart is, too.While everything about such relationships is not good, they are not entirely bad either.Online dating certainly is a grab bag of experiences. I like to start with the negatives so we can end on a high note. The solution: Stick to people in your league/level from their looks, age, occupation, location — it will increase your chances.On the one hand, you hear horror stories of psychos and unsolicited d*** pics, and on the other hand, you personally know several couples who have met and married over the thing. You’re never reminded of the fallibility of human kind as you are when you are online dating. And don’t put stock into anything or anyone until you’ve met. The paradox of choice teaches us that the more options we have, the unhappier we are and the more paralyzed we become to choose. Sure there are lots of people online and the grass can always feel greener for another date.I have this problem whenever I try to buy a nice cheese. If there were three choices, I’d be like, cool, I found cheese. Practice the idea that you’re just meeting people to know if they qualify for second place, not for life partner status. The solution: Check the options on the service you’re using.
The grocery store has a wall of them, and I really have no idea how to tell if I’m going to like a random one. People don’t write anything interesting, their photos are terrible and they don’t understand how to communicate. The solution: Not much you can do here besides suggesting some helpful tips to them, and they may freak out at you. They can often help you filter, block and report unsolicited/ egregious behavior.
