More I think its good place for those who are little shy in nature(specially men). They hesitate while speaking to girl.. So they come online.. & chat.. after knowing each other they start talking on phone, then meeting in real... Then if they like each other ..its done.
Of course their is a chance of getting cheated,, but that chance also exists in real life friends. You may not know when your partner will cheat you.
So I think that Online line dating cannot be a complete time pass but, I think it provides time to know each other well. - Thats what is important to become soul mate.
yes i am fully agree with the statement that online dating chats have nothing to do with the meeting of soul mate. because this online dating chat is only for timepass and they just want to chat for the time and after sometime vulger chat start and they lead to that thing only.......
I didn't understand your last sentence.. (I think you are in hurry).
As you said its complete time pass && and as Abid(some long before) said that "US people spent over 500 million dollars per year on this.It is said to be the largest segment of paid content on the web other than pornography"
The question that arise that..
Why people spends so much for doing time pass. They pay to find real people(their soul mates) & some time they find them too.
Many indian Matrimonial website do the same thing. They charge some price & then you can visit & see profiles of other members, have a chat & so on...
They also claim their success, that, many people got marry through their website & are living happily.
I agree to your first discussion.But the case of shy you told especially for men will only be increased on meeting after the chat.Psychologically he will have an inferiority complex and a fear about what things had I revealed in chats(In the interest of chat he might have forgotten what had told).
Also about spending of US people.I had told it is behind pornography.Don't you know pornography is merely for an enjoyment and people spends lot of time and money on that.Similarly online dating is an enjoyment to most people.Since the partner is online it will create more enjoyment and that is why people get attracted.
About matrimonial sites, it is a part of our advancement.For anything internet is the ultimate source.So why can't be our partner also through internet?That thought had been highly exploited by these people and poor guys thoughtlessly jump in.
I agree that many people do this for fun... But some does meet their soul mates..
So therefore I don not completely agree with the topic.
Some time its true that online dating is for fun.. but some time its to find their soul mate.
Your friend got mate from online site only.Very good.But he will be an odd man out of a lot of disappointed online dating men or women.Also more marriages takes place in this world (arranged or registered) in traditional way, not after dating or online dating.Why do you rise odd condition not seeing the majority cases?
