Pros and cons for internet dating
Most people I've interviewed prefer online dating to the bar scene because online dating offers a better chance of getting a first date.Post a reasonably attractive picture, sell your life's resume, and wait for the solicitations to pour in.Makes sense; it's easier to endure rejection from afar rather than have someone laugh directly in your face.FYI: my female clients claim that it‘s a must for a woman to have a terrific picture to get online attention but it's not as important for a man to have one.No need to drop a pound or two and drag yourself to a Happy Hour or a meet-up group.Nope; just a couple of taps on your keyboard and presto: Janine appears on your screen to tell you that she loves to laugh, isn't needy, loves her children more than life itself, and can find time to fit you into her mind-boggling schedule.
After a few seconds passed and all of our skin tones returned to a normal light pinkish color Carol responded: "Well, uh, we met online...that's right...online...the computer." Okay, so it was a pretty good impression of Annie Hall, but why all the fuss? Why are people embarrassed to admit they use this remarkable invention?
And if you don't physically appeal to your target objective, forget about it; it won't matter if you've got Anderson Cooper's personality.
Many claim that online dating also reduces the odds of being humiliated.
This makes sense in part, because men tend to be more visual.
But I do have a friend who refuses to post a picture for professional reasons and he rarely gets any reponses.
