Online Dating: Is it worth it?

Online dating is getting more common and socially accepted every day. More and more people are participating in numerous matchmaking web services by creating their own personal ads. There are many positive examples where people find meaningful relationships by such means. On the other hand there are numerous cases where people falsely present themselves or lie in their personal ads and more often than not such relationship are very short or just online fun for some people. So my question is: Is it worth it?

Yes

Why not, it's cheap and quick way to meet new people with millions of people as potential romantic partners. It's easy to make a profile and check others. If you take precautions before meeting people in person there is really nothing to lose.

We live in a busy world, and for professionals it can be tough to find time to meet people. I would rather not meet someone in a bar. Eharmony is a great choice, as it matches you with people that are similar to your own personality. I met my wife through the service. I also went on many dates before than, enjoying the women I met.

Blah, just wrote this. Sorry if there are two of them.

But like I said, blah blah, only good for hookups, blah blah, great for hookups not sure about an actual serious relationship. Could be wrong, but I do it all the time and only ran into short tern deals.

Ignore this as an argument because CD died on me and so I ended up double posting.

That in mind and off topic: CreateDebate should consider a couple things.

1. adding a server or two. Granted most twelve year olds have multiple servers, god forbid they exert that much effort so that their site doesn't suddenly go awol and result in multiple entries or lost debates.

2. Put a "delete" option next to edit before an argument has been voted, so I could just hit "delete" instead of going on a rant about CD.

There is a lot of fake ads and profiles. Most of the profiles are probably spam. People do not behave on-line as they do in person, they hide behind fake names, dishonest descriptions, altered pictures and are generally more rude.

When people represent themselves on online dating sites they only choose to show their aspects that they find to be attractive. Which leads to false representation which ultimately leads to a let down once a face to face meeting occurs.

Judging from personal experience ( those around me ) I have yet to see an online relationship end up working, so my personal opinion on online dating is that it is not worth it.

I don't necessarily disagree with you but I wanted to point out that face-to-face courtship is also aptly described by your first paragraph. When seeking to impress potential mates, people edit themselves, whether or not they are online.

That is an excellent and valid point.

What I was trying to convey is something such as a morbidly obese man might have a picture of when he was in the prime shape of his life, or possibly someone having a profile picture that isn't even them. That is what I meant by false representation, not when a person puts off a front that they are somebody whom they are not. Though the way I worded my statement made such a conclusion indefinitely logical =\

This argument can go both ways, but to be in the safe side, its better to say no. Online dating can be spams and can lead to danger for many young people.

Side: No
