The Internet has long been an integral part of our lives. It's hard to find a person who doesn't have a social network page. Dating on the Internet has become a lifesaver for a lot of people. Especially for those who have almost no free time. I've heard stories about people falling in love over the Internet and breaking up without ever meeting in real life.
So I managed to register on a Dating site. I remember that time with a shudder. It all started after the divorce. There was almost no free time, and I wanted to have a new relationship. The right way, as it seemed to me at the time, is of course a Dating site. I registered in the evening, after work, chose the best photo and went to bed. In the morning, I received about 20 messages. I did not expect this at all, it was only later that I realized the whole feature of the Dating site. As I realized later, it is at night that the bulk of users sit online, these are people from places not so remote, various idlers (who get enough sleep during the day), guys who just need someone to "remove".
I, of course, very quickly met with a handsome man. He was such an interesting conversationalist, had a very good sense of humor, and could support any topic of conversation. We could "chat" for hours on end. I knew that all my thoughts were about him. When he wasn't online, I suffered in real pain. I almost never let go of my phone. I couldn't do anything at work, I just needed my phone. After a month of our communication, we finally decided to meet. And here was the most interesting thing.
In real life, my "favorite" was not the same as in the photo. Apparently, too, chose the best photo, or maybe it just helped photoshop. But this is half the trouble. Of course, video chat will help to avoid this problem, since there you directly communicate with the interlocutor of go to this site. To return to my story, he could hardly connect two words. There was a feeling that education is nine classes and then with a stretch. Our date lasted about an hour. I knew then that it was the first and the last. When I got home, I had several messages waiting for me from him, all the same mischievous and interesting. "Here you are, what a push-button hero": I thought and deleted my profile.
I know that there are people who met their fate on the Internet, and I am very happy for them. But personally, my experience has led me to the fact that I will never meet online again:
First, it is, of course, appearance. As a rule, everyone selects the best photos for the avatar. In reality, a person may look very different.
Second, you never know who you're going to run into. It can be a prisoner or an unemployed idler. And when you meet in the network, very often people tell you some personal things that can then easily be used against you.
Third, writes a huge number of perverts. In the messages sent obscene photos.
And fourth, you can get hooked on a virtual world in which everything is easy and simple. In which emotions are expressed by a smiley face. And any user seems to be a gentleman and a real polymath.
