For young people of this era, the Internet is completely inseparable. If the Internet era suddenly disappears, I would say that many young people might not survive at all. After all, for most people, internet is indispensable in their life. Everything is related to internet. Working, eating, dressing, and social life, such as dating and relationships. These days, many people and couples are met through online dating apps. More and more people are joining this army. Why do so many people choose online dating sites over real-life dating? Here are the reasons.
Expand social circle
In real life, it’s hard for people to meet someone who really meet the standards we set for our significant other due to limited social circle, especially for introverted people who are reluctant to go outside and social. Online dating and hookup apps gather many single people who are nearby in one platform and for them to connect with each other. Here, you can set your criteria in words and you can really meet your actual dream lover. Dating and hookup apps enable singles to meet more people. The more people you meet, the more likely you are going to meet someone whether for dating or casual hookup, or even one night stand.
Failure in reality
These days, the reason why so many people are dating on the Internet is that relationships are not able to last for a long time, or they are not completely satisfied with their partner. They are all disliked by the other half, so they can’t find any sense of self-confidence in such relationship. Neither do they have the courage to find someone in reality. Through social dating and hookup apps on the Internet, they are able to regain some self-confidence. If two persons happen to hit it up, they can easily and quickly establish a relationship whether it’s real dating or casual hookup. This is the difference between online dating and real life meetup.
You can be more confident when you don’t need to face to face
On dating and hookup apps, you are separated by the screen. It is often easier for a person’s second personality to appear. After all, it is also in the false network world. There will be no real friends who can jump out of the screen. No one knows who you are and what you’re doing on the Internet. They can only see what you let other people to see. You can indulge yourself in the online world and do whatever you want. However, in reality, everyone knows your personality and appearance, so you can’t pretend at all. Gaining confidence online is much easier than in real life.
