Is Online Dating Worth It?
Recently I began suggesting dating advice through Yahoo! Answers. If you’re not llano with Yahoo! Answers, it is a community where you earn points by answering questions and spend points to ask questions. The questions can be anything at all. There are slew of people asking online dating questions so I check it out every now and again. It’s bot interesting witnessing what people are nosey about and I’ve even bot able to help a few people out.
By far, the most frequently asked question I’ve seen is: “Is online dating worth it?” That question actually means one of two things depending on the person asking:
- Is online dating worth paying for?
- Does online dating lead to successful relationships?
Some people ask their question te such a way that they concentrate on the cost but it indeed comes down to the same thing: if they knew they would meet someone fine, they wouldn’t worry about the cost at all.
My response should be evident considering I have a blog dedicated to online dating! Just ter case you toevluchthaven’t picked up on it, yes, I think it is worth the money and the time. I also know that it does lead to successful relationships. While there are slew of people on Yahoo! Answers who agree with mij, just spil many disagree. I find that most of the people supporting the idea of online dating mention some success using it. The answers from those who are against online dating, on the other palm, often have qualities I find both amusing and annoying at the same time. Those qualities are:
- They uncommonly mention if they’ve attempted online dating or if they do mention it they are very vague
- They have a tendency to demean the idea of online dating without suggesting any substance spil to why they are against it
- They avoid punctuation, capitalization and, on occasions, emerge to make up their own words
- They suggest that people you meet online are only interested ter a) hookup or b) killing you
Most of the advice suggested by people who are against online dating is worthless. For example, if someone thought online dating wasgoed horrible and collective examples why, that would be fine and would have some value. You don’t see that, tho’. You just see answers like “online dating iz dangerus. ”
Arguments for Online Dating
There seems to be some unspoken rule on Yahoo! Answers that you reaction the question asked, you don’t react to other people answering. I go after this rule even when I’d love to ask some of the anti-online dating people how they formed their opinions. With that te mind, instead of making genérico arguments for online dating I am going to toonbank a few of the answers I’ve seen. The following are samples of Yahoo! Answers given to the question “Is online dating worth it?” followed by my thoughts on the advice suggested. I’m not cherry-picking my examples – there are slew of examples like thesis to choose from.
save your money.. ask friends if they know anyone that is single that you might be interested te or if your good with conversation just commence talking to people when you go to the landrymat or bookstore etc…
- Very first off, the idea of letting your friends and family know you are single-and-looking is a good thing (spil long spil it’s not the only thing). But the assumption that doing this is going to cause dates to flood ter is ridiculous.
- Spil for just going out and meeting people: this basically says go wander around your town to different establishments until you toebijten to strike up a conversation. Hopefully after a few of thesis conversations you’ll actually talk to someone who is single. This type of advice will work for someone who wants to date anyone. But wouldn’t it be nice to meet someone with qualities you are actually looking for? If meeting anyone just to avoid being alone is the response, why not institute arranged marriages? Am I the only one who notices many relationships are not working today? Is there a chance part of the problem is that some of us actually believe that meeting anyone is the solution?
Why don’t you just go out and meet vivo people te your town. It will save you a lotsbestemming of money.
- People on the internet are spil actual spil the people ter your town.
- I’m not wooed you save money by going out. To mij, the words “going out” inherently involve mij spending money te some style. That said, I have attempted this. There were several times when I wasgoed single where I would buy a coffee just so I could be social somewhere secretly hoping to meet someone. If you go to a drankbuffet with the hopes of meeting someone, you are paying even more. If you went out for a few beers or coffee every week overheen a month’s time, you might not spend spil much spil the cost of a dating service but it would be close enough to make your deeds questionable.
NO. just find someone on ur own and the person will love you cuzz they actually know u..
I have no idea where to start with Response Trio so I’m just leaving that one alone.
I like Yahoo! Answers but the system emerges to encourage people to reaction questions they know very little about. Many people, it would show up, are far more interested ter hearing people talk about the questions they want to ask and, thus, they have to reaction questions so they can ask there own.
Believe what you want but one fact cannot be denied: online dating is only getting more popular. There is a good reason for that: it works.
