It's for people who don't have the balls to go outside and meet someone.

My uncle married this extremely fat/ugly woman who he emt on the internet, all the girls he met came from some dating service site and they all turned out to be ugly. And she married the worst of them all.

Rock on uncle!

The problem is the lack of physical interaction. In order to have a fulfilling relationship there needs to be physical intimacy. Without the intimacy the two people ultimately end up feeling like they lack something and remain lonely in the long run. There can also be trust issues because it is much easier to lie through a computer or a phone about your whereabouts than it is to a person that is with you a considerable amount of the time.


Failure should push you until success can pull you.

You should owe your life to the internet.

But the two online daters would meet each other face-to-face eventually, so the physical interaction thing isn't really an issue. Obviously it would be very difficult to maintain a relationship only over the Internet and never in person.

Personally, I don't think there's anything wrong with online dating. It's much better than going to any public place and approaching random strangers. At least with online dating you can search for people in your area with similar interests and personality traits as you.

It depends on how literal you are when you say "Online Dating". The internet is a great way to meet new people. Sometimes it brings back the feeling I used to have in High School; all of these new people to meet, better yet, locally, which you may have never had a chance to get to know and hang with had the internet/social networking sites never been invented.

As for you kids stating it's pathetic and assuming that its for the losers whom don't have the balls to go out in "real life" and meet someone just aren't thinking and jumping to ill-founded conclusions.

It is just better to talk to somebody in person. Even though it is scary, you actually see the person for who they are instead of a fake picture online with probably some crazy person.

Thats why i'm always on it. My always says "your on the internet to much. go outside and play." and i just say, "Mom, without the internet, i wouldn't be here. I'm just giving thanks."

Then she kicks me out of the house for about an hour.

I personally would never indulge in a relationship based online, but I can clearly see why others would. Very convenient and the chances of talking to someone of similar interests is relatively high. Although, I must say the two people must plan to meet at some point or it just becomes an ill fated illusion.

To sum it up, I don't mind using online services to find that particular girl, but as for actually dating and such, I would need to meet them and go from there.

Like any relationship it can work and it can fail.

The important thing with online dating is to actually plan to be with the other person, serious plans - If you haven't already met up with them. If you have no intention of meeting then you might as well just not bother as there needs to be a connection that can only be made when two people are together.

Of course for some people, they are just distance relationships as they have the means to see each other every so often, they can't help living far apart.

But anyway, love is in the heart, distance is in the mind.

If it's meant to be then it's meant to be. If not, then it's just like any other relationship that fails.

After my parents divorced my Mum used online dating for a while. She had very little luck for a while, however she did get set up with a couple of nice people, but in the end it didn't really work. But about half a year ago she met a nice guy online who was in the same kind of situation she was in. They've been seeing each other for a while, and about 2 months ago he moved in. He's a really nice guy, and I'm glad my mum has met someone like him.

They really do love each other, and they never would've met if it wasn't for online dating.


We had some good times, Newgrounds.

Are you talking about online dating sites where people use it to actually meet the person IRL? Or literally "online dating"? If you mean the former then I really don't care. It's just another way to meet new people in your area. The latter is a very silly idea.
