Real or virtual love?
Nowadays, Internet gives people a lot of possibilities we didn’t have in the past. We can buy things online, we can order papers online, and we also can meet new people online and even fall in love.
When people use “old-fashion” methods and date in real, they have a great possibility to know about each other. They can sit in the cafe, talk about life, ask questions. A man and a woman can see each other and feel in they like this type of person. When you talk to the online partner, you can’t see her or him. It’s impossible to understand if that handsome man from the dating site set his own photo in his profile, or in real life he’s just an old and bald person who feels bored with his old wife, so he needs some distraction and fun. You also can’t be sure if this cute girl in sexy dress is as cute in real life as on her photo. People used to lie about things in real life, so it’s easy to lie online. So, when you date a person in real, at least you can see him or her. But when you only talk to people online on meeting sites, you have no idea if this person really exists and if she or he is truthful.
Modern life keeps people in a hectic rhythm, and sometimes we don’t have enough time for everything we want to do. The same about dating: some people are so involved in making the career or raising a child alone, that they don’t have time for dating other people in real life. Instead, they choose online chatting and enjoy their conversations even with many people there. And it really helps to save time and money: for example, if a man wants to date a woman in real life, he should ask her to go out. He spends time and money to go somewhere with her, but then he understands he doesn’t like her. So, he should choose another woman and try to know her better; and another, and another… Instead, he can sit at home in his boxers with a bottle of beer and flirt online with pretty girls, telling them he is a rich businessman who feels so bored and lonely with his luxury life.
Sometimes people even can start to have feelings to their online partners. This is a risky thing, because they mostly fall in love with a person created by their imagination, but not with a real character. Of course sometimes it happens when a woman and a man can date online for a long time, and then to meet in reality, fall in love and get married, but it’s very rare. That’s why it’s OK to talk online for a while, but then you should insist to meet in the real life, if you want to try to build relationship with this person. Of course, you may find out the person will reject to meet. Needless to say it just means this man/woman prefers just online chatting and dating, but nothing more.
