Dunno, though I was never really into dating anyways so :shrug:
As far as my own case, I wouldn't think so.
My life for a while was more online than not, and the same went for my dating prospects. I don't really have a story to tell about that, the relationships I had before I met my current girlfriend are... nothing I enjoy recalling. I personally didn't use any dating or matchmaking sites or... actually, hm...
MMOs don't inherently qualify as online dating, I don't think... ₍ ᐢ.ˬ.ᐢ₎
In any case, it's just a tool. Practically, it's massively expanded the number of potential connections you can make, even if that dating pool's still an inch deep. Making connections and making them last is still up to the people involved no matter how you go about it.
it changed it for people like me who struggle with clubs and loud music etc for the better i feel
I wouldn't really say ruined, more pushed it in a new direction.
internet has ruined a lot
although frankly it's not simple "the internet", it's companies that ruined the internet which in turn ruined a lot of things
Just another place for people to meet and talk, though there are nuances I definitely wouldn't say ruined
I get what you mean, though I don't know about ruined...I think so much of dating is actually getting in a room with someone and determining chemistry and that part of it doesn't translate as well online - like on a dating site you check a bunch of boxes for what you want and filter out a bunch of people when who knows what kind of chemistry you would have had in the same room with them
tbh i never understood "dating". like i never "dated" someone in this sense. usually it is like finding friends but with flirting.
that said im blessed by the fact i was approached much, much more often by other people than the other way around. though i try to be more active. less for dating just as a personal goal. i kinda like being single rn in my life circumstances
Dunno. Mety wife on a party and never tried online dating
It is quite possible, as there are quite a few fake profiles out there. People use these fake profiles to scam lonely singles. They pretend to be interested, act like to meet up, but all of a sudden are out of money and need to be sent something like $600 for a plane ticket to meet the victim.
And if the victim sends the money, they never hear from the profile again
Im sure that there are pros and cons to both dating the “old fashioned way” and dating via the internet.
I literally wouldn’t be in my current relationship if it wasn’t for Retrospring weirdly enough
Depends. I'd say tinder did, but twitter, Facebook and instant messaging actually improved it.
I've been in the same relationship for 13 years. I have no knowledge of the current dating scene.
To be honest I have no knowledge of the dating scene 13 years ago either? It just kinda... happened?
