Online Dating Myths

The trend of online dating has been increasingly becoming popular for several years now. Online dating is indeed an excellent option for those who are interested in socializing, meeting more people, and getting to know potential partners. If you haven’t tried this online dating just yet, there are some things that you need to know before you start doing it. Here are some myths and truths that you should know to help you arrive at a sound decision. Go ahead and take a look.


  • Online dating is not considered a category of dating. But, since it also does not have any end to it, it can be compared to traditional dating.
  • The profile picture on the online dating site guarantees a good-looking date. But you have to remember that there is more to the person than just their picture. They may have a cute face but wait until you find out their qualities. Or, even if they don’t look that good in the picture, they may actually possess admirable qualities that are actually more attractive.
  • If a person is indeed good-looking, they will not even have to do online dating. There are many reasons why a person gets involved in online dating. Most of the time, it is because they do not have enough time to socialize and meet people in the real world.
  • Having second thoughts about someone does not mean they won’t make a good date. If you are not really sure about a person, why take the risk? If you are in doubt and you feel uncomfortable about it, there are many other people you can meet in other online dating communities.
  • It is possible to determine whether there’s a spark or chemistry by means of chatting and e-mailing alone. There is no better way to find out if you are compatible with a person than by meeting them in person and get to know them.
  • The Internet is not a safe place to meet new people. While there is a risk in using the technology to socialize and meet potential dates, there are plenty of ways by which you can make sure that you don’t fall prey to someone who wants to take advantage. Besides, the number of people you meet in the real world is nothing compared to the ones you can meet in the online dating sites.
  • Online dating is for losers. People who utilize online dating sites are actually the global community of single yet intelligent adults—the professional individuals who share common goals when it comes to finding great friends and dates online.
  • Online dating is for the younger generations. There are plenty of online dating sites for different groups of people, so there will definitely be a right place for everybody. This is even an excellent venue for those who are trying to race with time because it is a lot faster to meet matches online than in real life.


  • There will be a lot of people who would like to get to know you, and some of them might just pretend that they like you and are interested in you but they actually are not.
  • Men who are good-looking in online dating sites are not necessarily bad dates. And, women who look so nice are not always the most pleasant ones they pretend to be.
  • If you think that there is something wrong with your date’s profile, or something you are not sure about, it is better to move on to other possibilities instead of taking a risk. There are a ton of liars in online dating, and many of them just want to have fun.
  • It is common for people in online dating sites to tell you that they want to see you when they actually don’t have any plans at all.
  • Women who will refuse the offer of a meeting have important reasons for doing so: 1) They are not interested, but they just cannot afford to let you know. 2) They are overwhelmed with the great offers. 3) They are not ready to date.
  • Women get more propositions than men.

    I think maybe the list is backwards! The myths seem more like truths and vice versa.;)) If not, then the list is very discouraging;((
