Why Look To The Web For Love?
by Bob Narindra
Why look to the web for love? Can the web be trusted to deliver to you that Mr. or Mrs. Right that has eluded your life so far? Well, for a lot of people that have found Mr. Right on the web, the answer is a resounding yes! Others, however, are far more skeptical. So we examined the pro's and con's of online dating and came up with the following:
For many people the thought of going out trying to meet someone in real life is simply daunting. For them, even if they met somebody they liked the look of, the thought of actually going up to talk to them is simply too much. What would they say to them? How would the other person react? For a lot of people, the web is simply a godsend. They can simply log in to a chat room or personals site and be themselves. You are not meeting someone face to face, there really even does not have to be any verbal communication. It is all done with text through a computer, or through the online personals.
GET TO KNOW A PERSON
Through the web, you have a great chance to get to know a person for who they really are before the physical aspect is even in question. With online relationships, there has to be communication. This interchange of ideas is that allows people to really get to know another person.
NOT LIMITED BY TIME
On the web, you can log on at any time and find someone to chat to. For people that are extremely busy and don't have time for the bar surfing or socializing, it is much more convenient to be able to log on when they have 30 minutes or so to spare.
NOT LIMITED GEOGRAPHICALLY
It is a big world out there and there are a lot of people searching for love. In looking for love online you are not just limited to friends of the girl next door or your workplace.
NOT LIMITED GEOGRAPHICALLY
One of the biggest pros for online dating also happens to be one of its biggest cons. Geography! With the web, it is very possible that you will meet and fall for someone who lives an incredible distance away from you. The chances of this happening can be reduced if you look for love in the personals rather than chat rooms.
ARE THEY AN "AXE MURDERER?"
How do you know the person is being real on the other end of the computer? We all hear stories about people that went out and met their Internet lover who turned out to be an "Axe Murderer" The simple fact is that you can meet some nasty people out there so be careful. However, if you take your time and talk to someone for long enough, it is very difficult to totally fake your feelings. Also, whose to say that the person you met at the party wasn't the same?
So, why look to the web for love? Because it allows you the freedom to find someone on your own terms. You don't have to be fake to impress someone. The more honest you are the better your chances of finding someone that loves you for you. As always, there are risks, so be careful.
