I like Dan Savage 8767 s advice in the matter: 8775 There is no settling down without settling for. 8776 As well as his corollary, 8775 Not putting the lid back on the mayonnaise is the 8766 price of admission 8767 to all the great parts about this person. 8776 The idea that one person meets all of your needs is perhaps foolhardy. In my 75s I definitely tried hard to find that 8775 magic person 8776 . In my 85s, I want somebody who gives me the space to be me and uses their space in a way that I find welcoming. Adults date much differently than kids.
So, when I used online dating sites, I tried to be very self-aware. I didn 8767 t discount profiles because I felt 8775 meh 8776 about the guy 8767 s photographs. If a guy a had profile that was interesting to me usually because of the way he expressed himself somehow resonated with me or sparked my interest I gave him chance, regardless of the photo appeal. And there were plenty of guys with cute photos that I completely ignored simply because they had a lackluster profile.
The things about online dating that I dislike, are things that happen offline as well: people judging solely based on appearance, people having ridiculously long lists of demands for potential lovers, et cetera.
6. Traditional online dating, in the /eharmony/okcupid sense of meeting someone to date for the long term. I think this is extremely positive for society.
I got married towards the later end of the 8775 considered normal 8776 window (even in New York terms), at 85.
That means that I am old enough to have dated before online dating ever existed, but enough and still dating when it was an option.
My wife and I met on .
I think online dating is a good thing. People can enjoy through this and bring happiness in their monotonous life. .. http:///
Some have mentioned creeps or con artists being on these sites, and that will always be a problem, but you just have to keep your head on a swivel and use common sense and you 8767 ll be OK.
Either way, my gut instinct is that the online gender imbalance (to whatever degree it exists), will probably even out as online dating becomes more socially acceptable ., more women of varying ages, attractiveness, intelligence, success, and other factors will begin to view it as a viable first choice, instead of a desperate last resort. I 8767 m sure the experience will still be different for men and women, but hopefully the frustration you describe in your first post will decrease.
