Just as with any new relationship, there's always a chance that disappointment, disillusionment or a broken heart may end up the result of your efforts rather than love and satisfaction.
Of course, these things may still apply whether you meet through an acquaintance or online; however, the possibility of dishonesty or predatory behaviour may be much more easily accomplished by the immoral human thanks to the anonymity of online correspondence.

Many people nowadays are seeking therapeutic support after painful and disturbing online dating experiences.
My mother and father had very few hobbies and interests in common, but because they shared the same core values, their love endured a lifetime. O.’s interests exactly down the line, I realized how dangerous this line of thinking truly is, how it marginalizes people who really want to give and receive love for more important reasons.
I met a few potential love interests online and I never paid for any matching service!
They are an expensive rip-off for many women over 45.
Speaking as someone who was recently “commoditized” by who I thought was a wonderful man I met on a dating site, I find that the types of people who use these services are looking at the wrong metrics when they seek out a prospective love interest.
Needless to say I will not tolerate this and it was over. To me, we don’t fall in love with someone because of their looks (or their body mass index for that matter) or because of an algorithm, but because of the way somebody makes you feel and the way s.o. At the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter if someone has blue or brown eyes and my experience is, that most people place fake, manipulated or outdated pictures online to sell someone we don’t really are. I found my partner online and we had no picture of each other for three months – but we talked every night for hours…. We met on a different level and got aligned long before we met.
I am sad, frustrated and angry how this ended as underneath all of his insecurities, unresolved issues with his wife’s death he is a good guy. No-one seems very interested in making an actual purchase or commitment. So, the question is, would you give this way of meeting someone a chance…
