Not surprisingly then, most of us seek to find a romantic relationship in which we can be happy. We make bad decisions Internet dating sites offer us a vast array of potential date choices.
However, should we resort to online dating for the purpose of this? Furthermore, we sign up to several sites at the same time, then the choice increases.
More seriously, in addition to misrepresenting the truth in online dating, criminals actually set up spoof profiles with the intention of praying on and extracting money from vulnerable people who use online dating. Be wary of online chat Before meeting face to face, we may engage in a period of online chat. I think online dating sites should respect the consumer's choices & preferences.
Walster (1996) suggested that online communication can be hyperpersonal, meaning that we are more likely to disclose information about ourselves, and do so more quickly online. Ive noticed that they DONT use the search options we choose & they continue to allow the same people we have deleted or X'd out to keep popping up. A lot of these sites are full of men who are just looking for sex or they're looking for someone to SCAM !
The consequences are that we may end up making the wrong choice. Someone you meet in a bar could be lying about their status just as easily as someone you meet online.
