Dating social issues
My postulation is that the expectation for relationships to “progress” is a little more urgent for those resorting to online dating. I’m exploring and researching this space a little more.
I’m intrigued by the rapid growth of some of these companies receiving millions of dollars in funding.
Between e Harmany and Match.com, there are over 35 million users. I think it removes a lot of the challenges that makes dating incredibly exciting and suspenseful. For singles going on more structured dates, there is a lot of pressure to push things to an intimate level or risk falling in the friend zone.It’s setting up two or three Tinder dates a week and, chances are, sleeping with all of them, so you could rack up 100 girls you’ve slept with in a year.”He says that he himself has slept with five different women he met on Tinder—“Tinderellas,” the guys call them—in the last eight days. ”“We don’t know what the girls are like,” Marty says.“And they don’t know us,” says Alex.Dan and Marty, also Alex’s roommates in a shiny high-rise apartment building near Wall Street, can vouch for that. “She works at—” He says the name of a high-end art auction house.

From what I hear, there are several issues coming up in the online dating sphere, and I’m just thinking about how we can alleviate them? Online dating actually accelerate the process significantly. On one end, you might spend less time in dingy stinky dive bars hoping the next drink will make her/him attractive. Once you go onto an online dating site, you might have your profile protected from public view but let’s FACE IT; Your pretty face is being solicited in public for everyone to see. At the very least it says, “I’m single and looking for action.” I know if any of my friends saw my face on one of these sites, I’d hear my coworkers saying, “so Lief, I saw you on Tinder the other day. ” San Francisco is not a big town and if you are looking for other singles in a tight proximity, there is a high chance you can find someone you already know. 64% of people said they were driven by common interests (Source: Statisticbrain). They use 400 questions on the e Harmony survey so I’m sure they can link up commonality in some form or another with a ton of unqualified potential partners. This is your real life and if you don’t have a good story, you are probably doing it wrong.
