When the internet was created, a lot of people thought it was just a fad and newspapers would always reign supreme. Hi Rene, I'd been to different online sites since 2012, and on my first year of being in there lets say I did found a few real men, some of them are my good friends.

What is most hurtful is to find out that a women who you believed was only dating you, is still maintaining a profile and enjoying the attention. However, with online dating, men lie about their major physical attributes and financial stability -including lies about age, height, and income.

In one light I think online dating has a horrible aspect and numerous pitfalls in regards to types of people wether just looking for a hookup, mentally unstable, crazy stalker ex boyfriend's, the list goes on but may pose hope for those who have an inability to meet people for reasons of shyness, lower self esteem, and less confidence.
I did tell her I got into a fight after leaving a bar a year prior and I never want to do that again even though the fight was super lame. But does all of that quantity and convenience equal quality?

Never in my dreams would I thought of marrying a girl that I just met online, but everything turned out really well for me. You just don't see it or feel it. You want to look attractive and interesting, guys just make smutty comments or ask you out for a drink without really getting to know you. Online dating is not a sure-fire way to get actual dates.
