Relationships that came about through online dating don’t fare any better or worse than relationships that started out some other way.
Online dating is a tool that people use to meet new people who could become prospective dates.
In the end, you are still meeting another human being who is as prone to mistakes as the next human being.
If you are thinking about trying online dating, it’s really important to go in with a level head.
Some people jump into online dating with a ton of expectations.
They have been given the impression through friends or advertising that this is where they will meet the love of their life and their forever after.
This most certainly is possible but by no means is a guarantee.
It is another human being at the other end of that online dating profile, not Mr or Miss Perfect.
The people who succeed the most in online dating and achieve the lasting relationships are the ones who are realistic about their chances.
The problem with having such high expectations when you start online dating is that you start thinking that the person behind the next online dating profile is the one for you.
You start bouncing from date to date seeking Mr or Miss Perfect and end up with a procession of failures.
Everyone of interest should be given a fair shake before you move on to the next.
