Web sex dating
“It is very hard to get a sense of personal chemistry from an online dating profile," he says.
Dating apps that don't ask you to make a detailed profile "may save people a lot of wasted time and energy.” Karen Levy, a 45-year-old pet-care entrepreneur in Atlanta, also likes the way Tinder allows users to make quick decisions. This site focuses on singles with Asian backgrounds.
Some sites use technology like GPS to match singles who are nearby, or video-chat features like Face Time or Skype. Online dating lets you branch out beyond your social circle as you search for a partner, says Paul Eastwick, Ph D, assistant professor of human development and family sciences at the University of Texas in Austin.
Gestures, dress, and facial expressions may be better cues for chemistry than text messages.
So “even if you communicate via Skype, body language is lost.” Singles may project their own issues, needs, or feelings onto the images they see on profiles.
Mobile apps speed up the meeting process so singles can arrange a call or date quickly, Eastwick says.
Too much information about a potential date may be distracting, he says.
