Online Dating – Myths Revealed

Dating & Relationships / December 11, 2014

It’s hard to pin a number on the amount of single men and women in the world, but more than ever, thousands of people struggle to find luck in the dating pool. Singles are turning to online dating in the search for romantic, endless love. Internet dating is an awesome way to meet people, so how hard could it be to find a great date through cyber space? Well, some say online dating can be not only a challenge, but quite dangerous.

Do you know the truth about the most common online dating myths? Let’s look into five myths to clarify some of the online “monstrous stories” and guide you to successful online dating.

1.       All online daters lie about personal information

Online Dating - Myths Revealed

First of all, not every online dater on planet Earth lies about their personal information. Yes, it’s true that some people are dishonest or embellish or stretch the truth, but not everyone is the same. There are people who are actually genuine, listing truthful information. Between, honesty is the best policy.

2.       Online dating isn’t safe

Make no mistake, even when you meet someone new, they’re a stranger until get to know them- even if you meet them through a mutual friend. Having said that, online dating is just as safe as meeting someone face-to-face. If you’re worried about your safety, be cautious about the information you decide to share. In addition to that, to help you weed out the “bad people,” there are tons of resources at your disposal written by dating coaches and site operators to help you recognize fake profiles and dating scammers. On a brighter note, online dating is very reputable and is the cause of several happy relationships and marriages today.

3.       Online dating is a shameful way to meet people

About a decade ago, it may have been strange behavior to meet someone online, now almost everyone has registered on a dating site or has thought about the idea. Whether it’s a social media site like Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Myspace, we live in a world where people meet online all the time with no shame. It’s as normal and natural as being set up on a blind date.

4.       Online dating is for pathetic people

Online Dating - Myths Revealed

In the midst of intensely long work days and busy schedules, many people sign up for online dating simply because they’re too busy to get out and meet new people, not because they’re desperate and pathetic. With online dating you can easily search and browse through dating profiles on your own time. More importantly, contrary to popular belief, most people that engage in online dating are very accomplished individuals- far from a pathetic loser.

5.       Online Dating is all about SEX

Online dating is now one of the most popular ways to search for new relationships. Though cyber-sexual bliss exists on dating sites, not all sites are not all about sex. Most of these online daters want relationships and aren’t into one-night stands or casual sex. More so, if you have an STD, there are even STD online dating sites such as Positive Singles and Hdate. These type of sites are also not all about finding casual sex, but provide singles with the opportunity to find other singles that have similar situations. Online dating offers the chance at true love.
