Online dating may not turn out to be a good use of your time.
If you are looking to meet someone special you would be better suited to go outdoors and strike up conversations with everyone you see in coffee shops, checkout lines and grocery stores!
The consequences are that we may end up making the wrong choice. Someone you meet in a bar could be lying about their status just as easily as someone you meet online.
Our decisions are also affected by the way in which choices are presented to us, and in online dating choices are certainly presented differently to how they would be presented in real life. We only get a part impression In face to face interactions we form impressions of others based on their general demeanour and other more subtle behavioural characteristics.

Perhaps online dating doesn't work for some because they don't know how to do it, their boundaries aren't healthy, or they don't now what they want.
With the millions of people online, the sheer volume will stick once in a while, but unfortunately the percentage is minimal in comparison.
Here are the top reasons online dating does not work for the majority of people actually looking for a relationship: All of those reasons don’t include those that use the “bait”.

I was not always a matchmaker so yes I have even tried online dating myself.
We should be able to take our little wish list and scroll through the thousands of possible matches, until we find a perfect match. Instead what you will find online is people who are frustrated, angry and emotionally exhausted.
Not surprisingly then, most of us seek to find a romantic relationship in which we can be happy. We make bad decisions Internet dating sites offer us a vast array of potential date choices.
However, should we resort to online dating for the purpose of this? Furthermore, we sign up to several sites at the same time, then the choice increases.
