The good things about finding your love online
First of all, probably everyone will agree, the best thing about finding a love online is that you can find a lot of potential partners from all around the world, from all countries, cities, places & territories. You can find all kinds of people, you are not limited in people who are available in your local area and places where you are usually handing out.
You can make more wise decisions as there are really many options and you are free to choose your partner the way you like.
Also, when looking for a love partner on online dating sites or apps, you can be sure that people you see there are not in a relationship, they are completely free and open for a relationship, they are looking for a love too. That way, you can be 100% confident and you will not have to experience the disappointment that someone you liked for a long time is already in a relationship with another person.
Another advantage of searching for love online is that you feel much less shy to communicate with your potential love partners than you would feel if you had to do it on person.
Many people feel shy to talk to strangers, get to know them well, share their feelings & thoughts with them and express their selves freely while they are in front of a person they like. Well, while you are online, all that is taken away, you can be more confident, talk more freely, be less shy and better express your thoughts and feelings. This way, you can find your partner with fewer trouble &worries, you can be more open & real, no barriers.
Dating online & texting is also a better way for communication than talking directly to people, especially people who you like a lot. While you are having a direct talk with someone, you have less time to think about what you are saying, while chatting & texting is easier and you have a more time to think what you are writing, better phrase your thoughts.
Lastly, while you are using an internet dating service to find love, you can skip setting profile picture & talk to people without a picture too. This way, you can put away appearances and choose your partner with a pure heart & good personality, so good appearance will not blind you.
The bad things about finding your love online
Now about bad things, the first problem of finding your partner online is the lack of reality. Many people create fake profiles for different reasons and it is often hard to identify them. When you think that finally, you have found a good fit for yourself, it may appear that that’s just a fake profile instead of a real person.
Another problem with finding a love online is the lack of real expressions. Sure, you are more comfortable to express yourself, free from many barriers but you lack real expressions. Sure, smiles and emojis are here to feel the gap, but they still can’t replace real emotions and expressions.
After all the advantages & disadvantages, it should be clear that online dating is a great opportunity, thanks to modern times, but there is always a need for real meetings before you fall in love.
