I Think Internet Dating Has Killed Love

Has internet dating killed Love and romance?? tell me your story 162 People


    I think that it is sad that a lot of people turn to the internet for dating now. Probably because it is the easiest route. Some people have a lot more confidence on the internet than in person, I know I do. But I have seen internet dating work, also. I just think that it ruins...

    I Might Have Lucked Out

    I met a lady online and we met for Sunday brunch two weeks ago. Till then my internet dating success has been much like a Drew Barrymore movie - Fifty First Dates - most of the ladies that I have met have looked nothing like their pics, one confided to me after a costly dinner...

    Not just internet dating,

    but the internet in general. People use it as a substitute for human contact and get used to the instant gratification it provides. But no one acts real on the internet. It's like the "reality tv phenomenon." People know they are being watched or judged and put on an act. And...

    Losing the Will to Live...

    Months had passed...my enthusiasm for internet dating was on the wane and my bank balance was a major contributing factor. It's an uncomfortable state of affairs to adjust to the concept of being constantly thwarted, it's almost damn near soul destroying to pay for...

    I believe you can develop a deep respect for someone you talk to and spend time with over the enternet, but its pretty much like falling in love with a fictional character. Knowing somebody and being able to interact with them, to be able to physically express your love.. is...

    The Search For Love Begins..

    I had taken a big step. I had entered into the heady giddy world of internet dating by putting myself down in prose and staking a claim on the sea of love. I sat back and pondered what might happen and was very surprised when, on checking my profile that 12 e-mails had arrived...

    The internet creates anxiety.  Anxiety kills love.  Simple as that.  Of course there are cheaters...deceivers online, just as there are when you meet in person.    It's possible that someone you have agreed to have an exclusive relationship...

    I Often Wonder

    Why it is called internet dating? You can't really go on a date with someone on the internet can you? Unless you take your laptop with you and have the camera on. Don't think having a relationship online works out. For some it does and that is fantastic but for most it all ends...

    Internet Dating, the Answer to the Lonely Heart...or Maybe Not

    I have been single for almost 5 years and I am reaching the point where I think I shall never meet the right man to share my life with. My divorce from a long loveless marriage was inevitable and difficult, but I also had a glimmer of excitement that finally I would be free to...

    Internet Dating For the Terminally Lonely...

    I had been using internet dating for a whole two weeks and with every passing e-mail, I began to wonder if I was doing something wrong. I had been thoroughly wooed by the front page images of happy couples gazing lovingly into each others eyes. Him, bronzed and muscular with just...

    I was against it for a long time

    and I thought it was stupid. I should have just maintained that opinion. there are great guys out there but Tinder, etc has made it that nobody waits to get to know people - they are always keeping their options open, looking for the next thing... and essentially dating like 5...

    I oppose internet dating

    because anything that you get easily can be lost easily. if you are shopping for a mate online as easy as you would shop for shoes, it can't be for real. every person you're messaging is messaging ten other people too and they are all doing it just for the attention. just for...

    Feel Very Strongly About

    I completely agree. It's scary. I am old school where it began passing notes under the desks at school and went from there. Beautiful love letters and quiet drives under the moon. But this... this is weird, it's cold, it's not human and it's scaring me for my brother's and...

    But, definately maimed.  There's cyber-dating, cyber-chatting, cyber-sex, on-line matchmaking, internet social networking.  And once you log out of yahoo, or eharmony, or which ever sight you prefer, there's IM, so you can still have a conversation with no eye contact...
