Online dating has an influence on our everyday lives. Many people are finding online dating to be the new way to find a hook-up, relationship, or even true love. All they need to do is swipe right to meet their soul mates. Technology and the use of dating apps such as Tinder have developed easy access to potential partners in a matter of minutes. However, while online dating seems to be the easiest way to find a relationship, there are many risks and dangers that can come along with internet dating when people are dishonest in their profiles. Still, the popularity of online dating has changed the way people find romantic partners and the way they communicate.
Emily "After a host of unsuccessful relationships that began offline, I began to realise that although I often met people that I got on well with, we didn't share the same values, and that created problems further down the line. I studied psychology at university and was really interested in dating; what brought people together and kept them together. I knew that eHarmony had been started by a relationship psychologist and that the site had been well researched, so I wanted to see if it worked. I was on eHarmony for about four weeks before I met Rob, only going on one date apart from him. That date was a bit of a disaster, I can see why we were matched, but I think this guy had been on the site for so long that he probably just checked all the boxes and would therefore have matched with almost anyone. I would say that the pros of online dating are that you feel much more secure in yourself, not as vulnerable. Yes everyone is judging each other, but you have as much power in the process as the next person.
