I Think Internet Dating Has Killed Love

Has internet dating killed Love and romance?? tell me your story 155 People

    Depends...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    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...

    Nothing But Sex

    Since I have found out about internet dating and chatting on IMs... I have come to realize that the only thing that anyone is interested in is sex. I mean, when you meet someone personally.... it is different. They are physically there and yes, it is more challenging to just let...

    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...

    Hardships

    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...
