However, they can give the illusion of being surrounded by many people as loneliness increases, especially among young people. For dating sites, the trend is for sites that offer immediate, fast, effective dating. Many of the customers of these sites want to consume love, as fast as possible and with as many partners as possible. The attractiveness criteria must be met and meetings happen as quickly as they end. It is also easier for some people to be huddled behind their phone or computer to approach someone. This communication tool becomes a shield against possible suffering, a rejection of the other, but above all a shield against love and commitment. The risk is less when you are far from each other. We do not take the risk of suffering, but not the risk of loving either. There are still great stories that are created through these sites!
Manon Leclerc: In my opinion, there are no big differences between the virtual and the real. There are even more advantages than disadvantages! Each social network has its signature, its color, a specificity and a particular interest. A person signing up on a dating site may take the time to see who they are starting out with, meet several people so as not to be disappointed or go too fast. But beware, body language has an important place in the meeting with the other, seduction must follow if two people feel that something can begin. You have to trust yourself and be vigilant, otherwise problems and disappointment begin. Jealousy is even more relevant with social networks … A bad interpretation of a text message, a comment that is a little too expressive, an emotion transcribed by a smiley … moreover, it is already quite difficult to understand yourself in real life! Dating sites are also very accommodating for a shy character or reserved person who might not have dared to engage in a real conversation. To be honest, it will be to her credit to admit this trait which can in fact turn out to be quite alluring.
Julie-Edith Gauthier: Dating sites allow you to meet a large number of people. What is special is that during the very first exchange, we know if the other person is attracted to us. The followers of dating sites therefore pass over a very distressing stage: romantic and sexual rejection. If you never take the risk of exposing yourself to rejection, then it becomes difficult to make a long-term commitment. At the start of an online relationship, it becomes easier to control what you want to show the other person and try to seduce with our better sides. Yet we all have differences. People who choose this way to meet may have an uncertain and fragile loving attachment style. At the slightest conflict, it is definitely the end!
Emilie Bachette: Flirting is the term used to talk about seduction. This term is used less and less, as if this step were no longer useful. When you are on a dating site, there is no longer any need to “flirt”, everyone knows why they are there.
