Assuming that they have tried meeting people traditionally and it didn’t work out, would be my first guess. Getting up enough nerves to walk up to someone and ask them out can be very nerve-wracking for men and women. However, the difference in gender makes it more difficult for one or the other, due to tradition.
Men are expected to be the first ones to make a move and ask a woman out. He pursues her, wins her interest and it’s all supposed to be magic, right?
Not according to men whose greatest fear is to be rejected. Those fragile ego’s build up walls, making it harder for the next women to get asked out by him. Even though the world has changed and it is the twenty first century, women still wait for the guy to ask her out, and if he doesn’t, they both may end up sitting home alone on Saturday nights. Ice breakers and flirting can work for people who are extroverts; needless to say, no one wants to be rejected and feel embarrassed.
Furthermore, turning to online dating isn’t a bad thing or a big deal, it’s easier to open up and talk to someone, because both people are protected by their computer screen. If you don’t like him or her, you can just move on to the next person in that big sea. And the next person could be a match made in Heaven.
The majority of people wants to fall in love and have some great romance or just find their future spouse. That is the natural order of things, and that’s the way it should be. Online dating can become a headache because of all the dangers that lurks on the web, like online scam artist, pretending to be in love with you so that they can get you to send them some money overseas. They might say that they are having problems with their passports, or they are in jail and need you to send them money. This is something that is happening on many dating sites.
For women, online dating can attract men who are using the site to score sexually with as many women as they can. There are many players on these sites women should avoid, and they should also be careful when they meet men. Meet only after you’ve talked a couple of weeks over the phone, not just by email or text alone. I am one who believes you have to hear the tone of someone’s voice. Make sure you meet in a public place, have your own transportation and don’t leave with or follow a man some place, remember he’s still a stranger until he’s earned your trust and you’ve gotten to know him well. You have to think about your safety when dating a stranger.
There are some men and women who are married and they are looking to cheat on their spouses, so they go online to take advantage of your heart and body. When creating your profile, make sure you specifcally say that you’re not interested in married or separated people, in fact if you’re marriage minded, you should let everyone know what you’re looking for.
Online dating to some people is last resort after all else has failed, and I believe that places like Eharmony, Ourtime.com and ChristianMingles.com are better sites. Any site that offers personality test, background checks and you have to pay for a subscription you may be better off with instead of those free sites that attracts perverts, people looking for one night stands, people with fetishes or looking to scam you. People who pay their hard earned cash does not want to waste their time, so you may get more quality.
