Is online dating killing romance

A few e-mails and a telephone call or two will allow your personality to work for you—a real plus.In the bar scene it's all about your looks; you don't have the luxury of putting your best picture out there because—you're out there—in the flesh.Then, you get the joy of slowly learning about this person, and deciding whether or not they are right for you. You could be stuck at a table with someone who you do not have anything in common with, and have to take part in a boring and awkward experience.Online dating lets you get to know the person you are interested in a little before you actually meet them in person.Commitment is slowly becoming a stressful burden rather that a strong concerned responsibility.Being in casual relatiosnships and just hooking up and away are the reason why people no longer believe in long term relationships.Online dating sites and apps are transforming relationships.More than 10% of American adults – and almost 40% of people who identify as “single and looking” – are using online dating websites and apps.

Love in today's world is just a mere burden and almost entirely public on social networking sites leaving no room for privacy and that spontaneous spark we all know love gives us.

In my zeal to find out as much about Andy's good fortune as possible I innocently asked: "So, how'd you two meet? Realizing I stepped into something awkward I thought to myself: OMG they met in prison; or on a street corner.

Okay, so it was a pretty good impression of Annie Hall, but why all the fuss? Why are people embarrassed to admit they use this remarkable invention?

Arguing that society was heading toward nihilism – that is, a world without meaning, morals and values – Nietzsche thought that romantic love was frivolous, with friendship acting as a much stronger foundation for relationships.

From a Nietzschean perspective, the rise of dating apps like Tinder, Hinge and Grindr that encourage us to “swipe” or judge potential lovers in a nanosecond could be cited as examples of a society that has become obsessed with pleasure and instant gratification.

Online dating is sold as being quick and convenient, offering you hundreds of potential matches that you can view and dismiss as you choose.

While this is the source of a growing number of happy relationships, is it killing the slow art of romance?

And if you don't physically appeal to your target objective, forget about it; it won't matter if you've got Anderson Cooper's personality.

Many claim that online dating also reduces the odds of being humiliated.

The research is mixed, but a few dominant themes emerge, including findings showing that “swiping right” might not be the best way to find a true match.

Tinder certainly isn’t killing romance – at least, that of the ephemeral kind.
