People are criticizing online dating like crazy but dating websites don't tell you that. For a lot of people, it's a big waste of money and time.
For a lot of women, it's like fake flattery. A new female joins a dating website. All of a sudden, she's got 100 e-mails from guys interested in her but she doesn't know that these guys do this to every new female member. She thinks they're interested in her because of what she said in her profile and how she looks.
Let's say she goes on 50 dates. Forty eight will be frogs or no match. The guy she feels comfortable with might live three thousand miles away.
It's not just that. It's the myth that if you post a profile up, love is just around the corner. You still gotta deal with the real world, meet someone face to face and start a real relationship.
There's another thing too. Your profile is up there for anyone to steal and put on youtube or to go public with it if you become a politician or famous in some way.
