Would like to meet the truth about internet dating

The truth is we all lead busy lives and I guess that's why dating websites like Match seem to be the standard way to meet someone - you don't even have to speak to anyone if you don't want to, in the case of Tinder you can just swipe left and right depending on how you rate attractiveness and you'll only get notified if you have a match, it's a little like window shopping!What you find is that sometimes the box is more attractive than the contents, sometimes there are absolutely no contents inside the pretty packaging and sometimes, the package is just so scary you want to get it as far away from you as possible, swiping left at 3 million miles an hour!

You meet somebody at the bar, or your mom maybe knew somebody who had a kid who was your age, and it was her idea that the two of you would be perfect together, even though usually she didn't really know that other person."The internet and the phone apps give people more control.You're scrolling through your Facebook and Instagram feed and what do you see?Photo after photo of your friend's new boyfriend, your sister's kids and engagement statuses from those high school sweethearts you grew up with.Membership means that the site has to commit to an industry code of practice that includes honest communication with users, protecting their privacy and providing a mechanism for reporting abuse.Inclusion of the ODA's logo on the site indicates membership.I should state that most of my friends are singletons and all of my girlfriends are younger than me so I've pretty much seen it all.
