Neighbourly Discussions about Online Dating

Last night I had an interesting conversation with my next door neighbour. Both of us have tried the online dating thing but have never quite been all that lucky in love for all the money we spent on subscriptions.

This is what my neighbour had to say:

Online dating allows you to move too easily between partners - it is like a 24 hour menu that constantly changes. Whenever you get tired of one dish all you have to do is move on to the next one on the menu...

Online dating teaches people to actually be promiscuous (in a sense)...

He also told me about an email on "how to write your online dating profile" was sent by one of the sites that encouraged people to write profiles that would make them look better on paper (ie. better than they are in person).

Why I agree:

It is true that in the months that I had spent online and went on dates I always went back to look for someone better than the person that I've just been on a date with. I had so much choice that if something was wrong with a person - no matter how small - I would just move on.

What is your view on online dating?
