You may have put too much expectation on online dating.
People who start online dating often make the mistake of expecting too much from it too soon.
They expect online dating to instantly cure all of their dating and relationship woes.
This isn’t how online dating works.
You have to put the time and effort into it in order to get what you want.
If you are feeling more lonely than ever since you started online dating, you should ask yourself why that is.
Be honest with yourself.
How did you feel before you started online dating?
There is a good chance that you were already feeling lonely.
You decided to join an online dating site to remove that loneliness and you are yet to meet the person of your dreams.
Hence, you lay the blame on online dating for your loneliness when you were already lonely to begin with.
You put a lot of expectations on online dating, didn’t get the result that you wanted and now you have made yourself feel more lonely than ever as a result.
This is a common occurrence among people who join online dating with the immediate goal of getting rid of their loneliness.
They expect online dating to do all the work.
They think that by simply filling out an online dating profile that they will suddenly receive all the best romantic matches there are.
When that doesn’t happen within the first few weeks of signing up on an online dating site, they become discouraged and make themselves believe that they feel more lonely than ever, thanks to online dating.
It is not the fault of online dating that you are in this predicament.
You get what you put into online dating.
If you are not willing to be patient and put out the effort required to meet the right person for you, you will continue failing in online dating.
This is just the reality.
The people who have had success in online dating are often the ones who put in the time and made necessary adjustments where they were needed.
You have probably not taken another look at your online dating profile to see whether there are some corrections that you can make on it.
You have probably not taken the time to see whether the dating site that you joined has an active base of members who live in your area.
You have probably not taken the time to ensure that you construct the right kind of messages to people that you are attracted to on an online dating site.
In other words, you may not have done much to help you succeed in online dating.
Again, if you think that simply filling out an online dating profile and not doing much else is going to get you viable dating prospects on an online dating site, you need to think again.
You truly need to put in the work in order to get what you want out of online dating.
If you aren’t willing to do that, then you just may stay lonely.
