Why might online dating be helpful

The best way to get to know someone is by listening to everything they have to say about themselves and then reciprocating your life's story.

You bring your own expectations to the table, hoping this potential Mr. Right will meet your criteria, but in reality, meeting all of your expectations is impossible to do.

This has to be one of the best reasons why online dating can actually be hazardous to your health.

Sadly, it's not the weight that bothers a guy so much as the Some people don't even use their own pictures! But how are you supposed to know if they're the real deal?

It's different when you know them from work or your friends.

Studies have already proven that both men and women lie about different things on their profile.

Women tend to lie about their weight and men tend to lie about their height and salary.

Men have complained to me time and time again that when they finally met a woman they had been chatting with online, she turned out to be at least 50 lbs heavier than she stated on her profile.

Women counter that they hope a guy likes them enough after getting to know them online that their looks/weight won't matter to a guy. People lie about whether they're even single, if they have kids, their job, their looks, you name it.

I don't think there is anything more devastating to a person's fragile ego than working up the courage to meet someone they like only to have that person take one look at them and say, "Oh crap! People seem to think that if there's no chemistry in the first few seconds of seeing someone in the flesh, that there can be no hope of any romance in the future. I think the reason the meet-up tends to fall apart is because we as humans tend to have certain expectations and when those expectations are not met, we feel very disappointed.

It's so easy to build up someone in your mind, especially if all you have to go on is their online profile and what they've told you about themselves.

The so-called online dating experts instruct us on what to say and what not to say about ourselves in our profiles.
