Trying to steer through the world of relationships and love is a compelling task. Trying to navigate it on the Internet can be exhausting. With so many dating sites, comes many questions. What are the chances of finding a mate, is it safe, and can true love exist in cyberspace? There are often guidelines to follow, and rules to live by while dating online. Honesty and good judgement are among them.
Every day new people are embarking on a hunt through an online smorgasbord of potential dates. We often hear of the pitfalls of talking to people online and somehow trying to establishing some common ground, using a mixture of bold chat up lines, heart eyes, and drip drop emojis. The majority of the time, these short-lived technological romances end in disappointment. However, every now and then, this chance meeting with the swipe of a thumb can make magic. I am one of those few who completely unexpectedly met the love of my life on Tinder. Yep, that’s right... Tinder.
Some call it a chemical change, some call it an emotion, but love, or for that matter, the sense of companionship is much more than emotion or chemical change in the body. It is beyond the plain old description derived from words. Everyone longs for a companion and if you are someone who hasn’t had the pleasure of being with someone who loves and cherishes you for who you are, it’s about time that you invest yourself in the millennial generation dating technique.
What separates men from males in romantic relationships is the fact that there must be a level of spine and testicular fortitude to match the woman’s femininity. In order to achieve this balance, it is important to communicate with honesty, primarily. A relationship is built on the pillars of virtue that among these are honesty and integrity. Ayn Rand once said that a man must be rational and consistent not only in his work, but in all aspects of life as well.
Online dating sites and apps are becoming an increasingly common method of finding a romantic partner these days. Online dating used to come with a stigma, and people would often try and hide it that they met their significant other online. That isn’t the case anymore, especially among younger demographics. In 2017, an astonishing 30 percent of American internet users between the ages of 18 and 29 were using at least one type of online dating app or service.
It has occurred to me that many people take online dating very seriously. Not only is it a way to get a free meal or a drink (sorry men), women use it as a religion. Women that are truly searching for that special someone and go on dates actively finding ''the one.'' A lot of friends of mine have actually met their special someone through an app. Even my mother found herself a gem of a man on Tinder.
