With the advancement of technology, life has been easier for most people. This also includes the world of emotions and dating. Please don’t think dirty here, what I’m trying to say is how technology makes it easier to connect with the other person by using online dating sites as well as chatting rooms or softwares like Skype, MSN or ICQ.
By using these online websites and chatting applications, people have been given a nicer way to find and meet their own partner online. This is possible because it is much easier to connect whenever or wherever they are during the day. People with different cultures on different walks of life can easily connect with a simple click of a mouse and keyboard. In short, it is much easier to find the perfect partner online simply because of the increased number of daters.
After talking for a while online and getting to know each other, meeting them in person is the next big step. Talking to them and not meeting them in person and be contented in that way would just end in a pretty shallow relationship. I guess both persons are just looking for someone to talk to.
Using the Internet in finding real love helps you to get more intimate the right way with the other person. The reason for this is that it is much easier to be true and to be yourself when you’re chatting online. Imagine yourself saying anything stupid or throwing lots of jokes and you don’t see the other person’s face smiling or thinking that your jokes are corny.
With all of the expectations that you’ve built about the other person and yourself, meeting them in person becomes hard. This is primarily because you build these expectations and the one talking to them is not the real you. After that, both of you will then expect of who the real person really is.
Being confident is another problem that online chatters face. It is because it’s much easier to talk online than when you are facing the other person. Those who are shy may have a hard time in keeping up of who they really are. As a result, the person may be living in both worlds.
It is advisable to meet the other person in real world sooner rather than later. This prevents developing higher expectations on the other person when you meet them earlier on the chatting stage. It also helps in deciding whether you take the relationship to another step or just stay as friends. These further prevent lots of disappointments and heartaches.
