If that’s the case, online dating is probably a challenge for you. On a dating site, you don’t have to look someone in the eye and tell them to take a hike. The silence gets your message across without the guilt-ridden task of telling the person why you aren’t interested. That’s the harsh reality of online dating, and the rejection can feel soul-crushing when it happens to you.
Your eyes can’t do the talking; you have to up your chatting game before someone will agree to go out with you. Just remember, it’s only easy to reject you because they don’t know you.
Having literally thousands of dating options isn’t always good for relationship satisfaction.
After reading through similar likes, dislikes, and bios, people start to blend together.
When you can’t remember if you’ve already messaged that cute sushi-loving gal, online dating kind of sucks. You’re connecting on every major topic, the banter is stimulating, and you think this might be it — and then you meet in person and everything you liked about him or her evaporates before your eyes.
You can’t sign up for a dating site and expect some fairy-godmother-like matching game to bring your soulmate to your inbox.
Dating websites are a platform designed to make it easier to find a date — but you still have to, you know, do stuff and be good at it.
Sometimes you meet up and the chemistry isn’t there, and you can’t do anything but count the minutes until the date is over.
It doesn’t matter how long you’ve been chatting online; you never really know if you’re going to hit it off with someone until you meet in person. Maybe exposition was never your strong suit, and you’re more a physical being.
Sometimes “Online dating sucks” is just code for “I suck at online dating.” The good news is you don’t have to suck.
The fact that you’re here means you’re on your way to sucking less.
Sending out message after message each day can get exhausting — even more so if you’re not getting responses. Sending more messages gives you more chances to get a response, but that takes more time.
You take all this time to find the right person, craft a personal message, and then you wait. Your dating profile can begin to feel like a part-time job — except you’re not getting paid.
On dating sites, you’re competing against single guys all across the internet, and it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle.
