They place a tremendous amount of importance on how someone looks instead of who a person is. Though, its demerits rise above on the balance beam. Lying on profiles - Speaking of lying, there is no way to immediately verify someone's life story. I'm not suggesting that it's impossible to find someone online.

Can't plan a date but they are extremely romantic.
Raleigh: Oxford University Press, 2000. I have been asked many times what my thoughts are on it and with that here is my view on the good and bad of online dating.

So why has online dating become so popular among singletons of today? They even lie about their height, income and marital status. But there is a difference between looking your best and trying to be something your not.

The unfortunate and unnecessary mixed with the fast and often casual nature of online dating is not a good combination. Tried for three months on 2 different sites, very depressing.

Over the bar scene - As you get older, the usual ways you go out to meet someone new or just to hang out change. Prepare yourself for a reality check. Nice looking people are not always as nice as they look on the outside and getting to know someone is not as easy as sending off a text message. I'm never willing to come to any woman's rescue no matter how convincing she is. Some are just plain odd, never had girlfriends, they would have no chance in a bar, so you have to wonder why they are online. Two of them were moved communicationally from the site — by me — but in spite of their asking to meet up and wanting to 'chat', one never bothered contacting unless I did while the other hid behind spamming text messages and refused to speak over the phone, despite being the one to suggest it.
