While many people prefer online dating to the tradition dating approach, is online dating a safe alternative to the traditional way of meeting potential romantic life partners?
Online dating has become one the fastest growing alternative techniques of dating. Gregory Forge, “ Over 60 percent of all internet users spend about two or more hours each day looking for romance.”(Forge, 135) In North American, about 10 to 30 million people have created an online dating profile.(Forge, 138).
Most singles date multiple people until they find their true love.
However, the techniques of dating have changed with the use of the Internet.
The nice guy you've been matched with through a dating site is probably not a serial killer, but he also might not be a 6-foot-2, 25-year-old underwear model either.
And then from the collection of potential candidates, a person can narrow their search to people who meet their specific criteria.
And later, if the two people are not compatible, then the dater can click a button and quickly move on to the next candidate.
If they used the traditional method of dating then they would have to waste time and go on several dates.
Traditional Dating Everyday, millions of single people share a common goal.
They all share the desire in finding a romantic life partner.
