There are a number of reasons why people start online dating. Usually they are caused by personal characteristics, lifestyle, as well as psychological problems. For example, these could be factors such as:
Shyness. If a man or woman suffers from an inferiority complex, self-doubt, phobias associated with communication, and therefore is not able to meet in person, he or she prefers online dating. You can always be a “star” online, it’s easy to embellish something, hide something, it helps to relax and feel more confident.
Loneliness and narrowness of the real social circle. Unfortunately, for many, the real social circle is extremely narrow: colleagues, a few friends, girlfriends, a few relatives – that’s all. Also, the very way of life limits a person (“home-work-home”). In such conditions, there is simply nowhere to meet, and as a result, a person begins to register on dating sites in order to find a soul mate there.
Too much romanticism. It is typical for some girls of older adolescence. Let’s say a girl is not happy with classmates or classmates and believes that on the Internet she can find a real prince, an oligarch, a genius, a movie star – in a word, someone really worthy of her, you just have to find contacts and start correspondence. And there she will quickly charm the “object”, and the happy ending is ready. This is certainly a very infantile approach.
Dissatisfaction with life, poor relations between spouses. This is another reason why both men and women start online dating. Often, after long years of family life, people no longer experience passion for each other, sexual attraction and, accordingly, do not receive emotional and sexual satisfaction.
What else can attract in online dating in general is the simplicity and complete control of communication, a sense of security. If you get tired of talking, you can stop the contact with one movement of the mouse. Nothing disturbs your comfort. But, in fact, spending time online can just turn out to be an unsafe thing, especially for girls who want to find a mate in this way. So why is it so hard to find a date? There are many reasons for that.
What are the dangers of online dating
Communicating on the network, you can, alas, meet with rather unpleasant phenomena. Let’s try to divide the main dangers into categories. First of all, on the way of a girl looking for a romantic acquaintance on the Internet, scammers of all stripes, who are fluent in manipulation techniques, can get caught.
Scammers on the Internet are a special type of people who can ingratiate themselves with women, charm them in order to take possession of their money and property. They usually have a deep knowledge of psychology, the ability to build communication in such a way that the victims themselves, voluntarily give them material values. Fraudsters skillfully select the “key” to the girl’s heart, “signaling” to her that she is loved, beautiful, desirable, fall in love with her.
There are several types of such individuals:
- “Generous Fans”. It may look like this: for example, an Internet boyfriend tells his passion that he is sending her a gift “directly from Paris”, but then it turns out that the girl has to pay for delivery through an international service whose website is actually a snag, and the money comes directly scammer. Another “pen pal” can invite a girl to come to visit him in another city, or even abroad.
- “Caught in a difficult situation.” These “specialists” make a girl fall in love with them in the way already mentioned (compliments, confessions, etc.), and then they seem to get into a difficult situation – an accident, an illness, a card loss, threats from bandits … In general, what is enough fantasy. A lady in love, already mentally considering the style of a wedding dress, receives a message that her beloved is “in trouble, dying, arrested, in need of an urgent operation” and the like. It is easy to understand that a frightened and psychologically traumatized woman immediately gives the right amount of money.
- Love extortionists. At times, when a virtual romance is flaring up, an Internet fan asks to send private photos or videos. You should think ten times before sending them. The fact is that they can at any moment find themselves on public display! Relations Blog gives more information on the topic.
The owner or owner of the photo receives a letter from a recent “online heart friend”, which informs that if she (he) does not pay such and such an amount, all the pranks in front of the camera will be with the husband (wife), boss or just on YouTube, for example. Unhappy selfie lovers run to transfer money. But, as a rule, scammers are not limited to one time. This is a very serious situation, which is almost impossible to stop without the intervention of law enforcement agencies.
