Needless to say I will not tolerate this and it was over. To me, we don’t fall in love with someone because of their looks (or their body mass index for that matter) or because of an algorithm, but because of the way somebody makes you feel and the way s.o. At the end of the day, it really doesn’t matter if someone has blue or brown eyes and my experience is, that most people place fake, manipulated or outdated pictures online to sell someone we don’t really are. I found my partner online and we had no picture of each other for three months – but we talked every night for hours…. We met on a different level and got aligned long before we met.
Having fallen under this spell myself…”Oh, he’s nice but I’m sure there’s something better on the next page…” Click.
The internet has progressed and continues to progress as time passes.
They make worse matches than just using a random site.
That’s because their matching criteria are hardly scientific, as far as romance goes.
They also have a very small pool of educated, older men, and lots more women.
Therefore they often come up with no matches at all, despite the fact that women with many different personality types in that age group have joined.
They are an expensive rip-off for many women over 45.
Speaking as someone who was recently “commoditized” by who I thought was a wonderful man I met on a dating site, I find that the types of people who use these services are looking at the wrong metrics when they seek out a prospective love interest.
Five months into the friendship he told me he “Was looking for his dream women in cyberspace”.
I think he has been on these dating sites for over 5 years. Stumbling upon this article during research for my Master thesis and I am curious: Would you use an app, that introduces a new way of dating, solely based on your voice and who you are, rather than how you look like?
