    I sat behind these two men on a plane once (one was really big and the other was so tiny) and they were talking about d online dating. Specifically, how much more sense online dating made when compared to meeting a random person in a bar.

    Anyway, not sure I agree with your numbers... can you give us a RS?

    I can't understand why would anyone frisk the web to find a date or a potential love match.

    The stat is used to advertise some match making site, but I'm sure the survey data is more relative to people using facebook to meet up with old partners/friends from previous jobs and schools.

    I can't understand why people think that's any different from trolling in a club.

    Yes, I guess so - but is substituting real life dates with online ones even healthy? I mean you can go on a dating site, find a perfect match, meet that person on a real life date - and what if that person happens to be a complete psycho? (just asking)

    Pretty sure that happens in offline dating too. Probably more so.

    Clubs are a nigmtmare to begin with. People I've met were often drunk as fuck and couldn't understand the word NO.

    then u make a commercial talking shit about that site .... I do see your point with all the effort in trying to find the perfect person online. You could just weed through the crappy ones in "real life" .

    I guess the whole premise of these sites is dependent on what their theory is on compatibility. Should we be looking for people who are similar to us or different?

    What areas must we agree on, which parts can we differ.

    I'm not sure meeting someone who shares all my interests and individual values will necessarily create a good union.

    ^^there's no such thing as a 100% perfect match, but we all have some ideas of what we're looking for when it comes to dating. The fact is, opposites do attract to a certain extent.


    Well, everyone knows this golden law of the internet: You never know who's on the other end. If a heterosexual guy thinks he's talking to a girl, and he finds that he shares many interest with her, and then he finds out its some dude, i'm sure that kills the point of online dating.

    I have nothing against online daters. They can do what they want. But there's a world of difference between shared experience in common dating and "talking and getting to know each other" in the alternative.

    I have never met an online dater in my life, so I'm not... the most informed about how things work. But I'm sure they can make it "real." I guess shy people will find it easier to talk about themselves online, so the dating thing works both ways.

    But personally, I'd rather not do any online dating. I'd rather meet someone in person and spend time with them that way if I were looking for someone.
