5 problems with internet dating
Some sites deal with this by only giving you a few matches per day (such as e Harmony) or only one (such as Coffee Meets Bagel).
This certainly helps reduce the onslaught of messages, but a lot of people still want to feel they have more options.
More and more of us insist on outsourcing our love-lives to spreadsheets and algorithms.
A picture is worth a thousand words and everyone wants to speak a good impression.Online dating is both thrilling and threatening; exciting and exhausting; viable and vexing.With such conflicting realities, problems often arise that make you want to throw in the towel and stay alone.If you want to think about dating as a numbers game (and apparently many people do), you could probably swipe left/right between 10 – 100 times in the span of time that it would take you to interact with one potential date in ‘real-life’.With the popularity of sites like e Harmony, match.com, OKcupid and literally thousands of similar others, the stigma of online dating has diminished considerably in the last decade.
