Ten reasons online dating doesn’t work for me

I don’t want you to go through the same phase and waste your time and money on such sites. So, I am giving you ten reasons why these online dating sites did not prove good for me.

10 reasons online dating doesn’t work for me

Hi Guys… I am Shreya, 24 years old pretty, homely, intelligent, sensitive, caring girl *wink wink*… but still no luck in finding a cool dude… tough luck.

In today’s scenario, the whole world is now online. The internet world has given a lot of ease to our lives. We can buy anything from all over the world in just a few clicks. In today’s fast-paced world, online sites actually have proved very time saving and effective. Previously, I used to roam around shops to buy small-small things and had to waste most of the weekends. I couldn’t get time to spend peaceful time with my loved ones. From the past year, I visited malls only to watch movies and enjoy the various delicacies. My life has become so easy and comfortable. But it became a challenge to find my soul mate. This also became difficult these days to get free time to find someone, meet someone and date someone.

Six months ago, I made a decision… it was June month I guess. As I had become an internet bird so I thought I’d go for cyber romance. I thought it will give me a lot of options on one-tab page and 1000 more as I click on “another tab page”. This way I could find best over from all online dating sites. After all, I am perfect in all aspects so deserve the same kind of person. I made my accounts on all most all dating sites. I came to know a lot of boys, I used to chat for long hours, I spoke with many different types of boys… some were chatting lovers… some were shy and some were too open that I used to feel shy. There were so many good-looking pictures of boys which made it more difficult to choose one, two or many. *sigh*

I almost spent three months on these sites and spent a lot of time and money. With the grace of these sites, I got chance to speak few boys who were very handsome and had similar good looks I was looking for. I was happy with their behavior too. Quite a time it was also late-night chatting after a hard day at work. In the start, each time after having few conversations I started to feel that I found the one but with the increasing conversations I lost my interest. One of them made a fake profile which I came to know from some other social site. I was able to connect to a few good accounts but somehow, I felt everyone was so presentable on sites without any flaws which actually could not be real. Slowly, I lost my interest and one day I decided to delete all my accounts.

I don’t want you to go through the same phase and waste your time and money on such sites. So, I am giving you my ten reasons why these online dating sites did not prove good for me. If you feel a similar thing, go and just delete your accounts immediately.

Soulmates are offline

1. Soul mates not available online – If you are looking for your life partner, online sites are not the right place for you. Most profiles you will find with only fairly superficial information which won’t help you to understand how someone may actually behave in real life.

Fake Profiles

2. Fake profiles – As I experienced, you will find many fake profiles. Their intentions could be different. These sites are an easy target for crimes. They can use your pictures, can click your videos from hidden cameras and misuse the same. So, you have to be very alert and careful while using these sites.

Trust

3. Trust. Luck is not often on our side with these sites – If you know someone personally, they think twice, at least, to break your trust but when you are connected with someone online, they can easily break your trust and get rid off you with just a click on block button… eazy peazy.

Just a Platform

4. Just a Platform (to pass the time) – Many people come to these sites just to spend their free time. They don’t come with an intention of finding real love. They get involved with you, enjoy your conversation and when they get busy or find another interesting person…. they just ignore you without caring of your emotions which does not happen that frequently when you know someone personally.

Categories

5. Categories – You can filter profiles according to your choice. You will profile region-wise, country wise, physics, color, habits. You just need to categorize and you can literally draw a dating partner of your choice but there is no proof of how much the given information is correct. People can easily alter their profiles.

Wrong Judgement

6. Wrong Judgement – Maybe you are the lucky one to find genuine profiles. You may find some nice partner but you cannot make the correct judgment until and unless you personally know someone. Your judgment can be affected by pictures and their impressive words which can easily hide their real nature.

Online Fever

7. Online fever – Most of the time, we tend to get easily disclosed to others in the online environment. We feel more comfortable and open comparatively and we dare to talk personally. This also could lead to many problems. We easily share our sensitive information and get attached emotionally to such environment.

Time-Consuming

8. Time-consuming – As I started online dating to save time and realized this actually take lots of time because you also waste time on fake people and it takes time even to find genuine people and that also depends on your luck.

Money-eating Sites

9. Money eating sites – This also empties your account balance if you get addicted to these dating sites and you may have to borrow a loan

Long Distance Relationship

 

10. Long Distance Relationship – If by chance you find your someone with whom you fall in love. And there is long …really long… distance that is another risk to lose your lucky one. We mostly tend to find our love around the place only when we search someone personally.

 

So, the list is not enough…. maybe you can add more reason from your experience. There is no doubt that there are many people who found their true love online, got married and living happily. But unfortunately, I am not the lucky one. So, I have turned on my antenna and it began searching that for that lucky one in close proximity.

Wish me luck next time.

  1. In our generation, we can do anything easily and fast with the technology we have right now. Having all the social medias, online dating is one of the advantage that we can do in different websites right now. And, as a social media user, in my 19 years of existence, I have never tried online dating. I came from a very conservative family, I have known the love story of my parents all my life and I have never heard the word ‘online’ in them. They even used to wrote letters to each other to keep in touch years ago and for me, that is much better than looking for someone online. It doesn’t mean that you can’t find a good person in online dating platforms but I think it’s really not for me, too. Maybe, looking for a person online just to interact with a person is okay but not to the point that it’s serious.

    As per what I used to hear from my friends about Online dating, you will also find different people in different platforms. You can meet nice people, rude ones, people who are just looking for pleasure, and more. We can also meet people in their false self, hiding their true self so that people will like them. There even people who put pictures that are not their own so that other people would want to chat them right away. Sometimes, online dating is really harmful especially if you are not cautious, but sometimes it’s good to try something new.

  2. WEEK 10
    First of all I don’t judge despise those people who uses online dating app or sites I just know that we are in a different page, I always think that this people who are using this dating apps or sites are seeking more attention to a lot of people and they are open to know more about other people.

    However I am not really in favor of friends with benefits relations for this kind of relation will kill you materially,physically and mentally this type of relationship is very unhealthy even to a man or a woman, for one may say that he or she is staying for the “love” but sooner or later that love will fade as the benifits go away and this will surely devastate one’s heart. Being in a realtionship that depends on material thing is toxic the things that you earn as a hard working person should be enjoyed by you and your love one’s not used as a reason to stay with you. But that is not the case always you may not have the money but you have the dignity and that priceless thing that a man or a woman may have is very special, some (NOT ALL PEOPLE) are just staying to steal this priceless gift that God gave to a person yes you maynot have the money nor the luxury but when you have your dignity you are worth everything for a right person at a right place and time.

    I never try online dating app nor site in my entire life, I never picture myself try this online dating platforms to get my special girl for me if she is that special it take more than a swipe to talk to her or to ask her on a date. Plus being a man is more than just putting a wax on your hair nor wearing coats being a man is being responsible in every actions that you make for this will reflect not only to your girl but to every people how man enough you are. Don’t get me wrong technology is not evil nor a mistake but some point of our life it is better to do it in a old fashion way. I still remember the thing that my teacher tought me that I should be responsible in choosing and taking care of my girlfriend for entering in a relationship is not a joke nor is a toy to play with, and I do beleive that golds are not easy to find nor they are sitting besides the road for everyone you steel that is why I thought my self that if I want to have the best I should be patient and positive even if everyone thinks that the “gold” I am searching is long gone.

    As much as I try to think of the reasons on how things online site or any modern courtship to fit with my standards I can’t think even one but I as a result I came up with another list “10 THINGS THAT WILL PROVE THAT IT WILL NOT WORK FOR ME”
    [ ] Requires no effort
    [ ] Lacks sincerity
    [ ] Easy to get, Easy to lose
    [ ] Does not reach the standards
    [ ] Fake personality
    [ ] Requires internet, not real attetion
    [ ] Not private
    [ ] No personal interaction
    [ ] Waste of time
    [ ] Gold are not easy to find

  3. I haven’t tried online dating before because honestly I don’t want and I have no time for that thing. Actually, I don’t want to have a relationship for now because I want first to focus with my study and graduate first before that relationship thing because that’s what my parents and I agreed with. For me, we should not be hasten to have our relationship with someone because I believed that if that man is for you and you are destined with him, in the end you will end up together no matter what. We should takr things slowly and we should prioritize the important thing first before that relationship because there is a right time for that.

  4. Honestly, I haven’t tried online dating before because for me, that is a waste of time. If I’m bored, I have many options to do. And if I like to have a conversation to someone, I just chat my friends in my social accounts. I was not really interested on that kind of thing. I do believe, that love waits. Love couldn’t be instant. If we keep rushing on to things we want, it is not impossible that we will end up being hurt and regretful. We should not settle for less. We are better than that.

  5. Have you tried online dating before? What platform and why? What are the usual kinds of people you meet there?

    I always believe that romance is something special. It is a gift. And I’m a hopeless romantic type of a person. I want to meet someone in a fairy-tale like moment with a magical reason. I am an idealist in love, sentimental dreamer, imaginative and live with rose colored glasses on. I make love look like an art form with all the romantic things I’ll do for my special someone. But everything has changed when I’ve tried the online dating app. Yes, I have used the online dating app (omegle) because I was curious about the app in which I have learned from my friends and I want to kill my boredom. Never did I know that in that platform, I’d met someone I never knew would play in my life an important role. I never intended to use the app to meet someone that I would date for. I just use the app because I don’t want to be ignorant on the topic on what my friends where talking about and in using it, I have discovered so many things. I learned that you can talk to someone without knowing their identity and you will just talk there without any malicious intent. I met different people like “the one who need someone to talk to” type, “the bored” type, the “want to have jowa” type, and the “malakas lang ang trip at walang mapagtripan” type of people. But what shock me the most in using the app was meeting different people who are like a hungry in sex predators. I believe that in that app there are still people who have good intensions but what scare me the most is that majority on that app are just want to feed their needs. But in my experience, I am happy that I met someone who has a good heart and respect to whom he was talking to without even knowing me completely. It was because we are paired by the word “life”, the word that totally changes our lives. It may not be like those hopeless romantic scenes that I’ve seen in the movies but meeting him in that app where full of hungry predators feels like I’m a damsel in distress saved by my knight in shining armour.

  6. Way back 2017, I used omegle and I think omegle is dating sites and it depends on you what interest you put into it and if you have a match then you may now start talking. I use omegle because me and my friends have a deal, we’re going to used omegle but we must looked for each other but of course, we must have a same interest to find each other and of course, I found one, only one. Omegle is international or whole wide world are using it. First of march, I using omegle just not to bored something and the people who you have a same interest are usually they are looking for sex, that is why, now I never use omegle. Back then, I’m very curious how this gonna work when I’m start using it, I know how to get things worked.

  7. Lozano,Geofrey N. ACT 186, As of now, our generation became smarter nowadays, but not really smart at all, people can do easily without effort because of fast and reliable internet and technology. But as a user, having all social media, Honestly I’ve never use a dating app once, because why would I use that? To flirt with other girls and bang them then forget about them, some of my friends do that but absolutely not me, they are drived by their lust. I’m a person who is not into a wide span of social media, just facebook, twitter, instagram and some games in my phone and that’s it. I think a dating app can’t boost my confidence as a person, just to make them impressed for the things I didn’t have. But I’m a person who is true to myself, no cover up, no filter, just showing the real me and there’s plenty more where that came from. But especially I’m guy, lust comes naturally to us, but I don’t spent it in having conversation with a girl through a dating app, looking at it’s profile and thinking about them, nah I’m really not that type of guy. But I’m curious about that dating app, but my curiousity does’nt give an attention to use that app and experience what it is, it’s better to say no than to say always yes!!

    Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? What are the usual kinds of people you meet there?

    Back when I was in high school I don’t have much friend because I am not good in socializing in personal and that time tinder was one of the most trending dating app in social media and so I dared to try it for the reason of having someone to talk to about the thoughts I had in mind. It was fun at first most specially if you find a match that really suits your type and is also good at starting conversations, but if time comes that the person you are talking with lose his or her interest it was very much easy to leave you hanging. That is one of the downside of online dating, it was easy to find someone to date… and sometimes love, but it was also easy to let go of the feelings you both felt.

    Base on my experiences, there are different types of people that you can meet in dating platforms, some are better and some are just assholes. There are some people you could meet in dating apps that only wanted to have a conversation that inspite of not knowing each other personally they are still respectful towards you. On the other hand, there are also the worst kind of people in dating apps, most specially those who are “horny” and ask you to meet up for sex. There are some who are just so boring that you can’t even last a conversation. But the best people in dating apps are those who are really serious and has no other bad intentions but to just date, but it was very rare because you can’t really find someone like that in dating apps easily.

  9. The process of online dating couldn’t be simpler. You sign on, spend some time creating an eye-catching profile; next thing you find yourself with access to a huge pool of potential partners. Right at your fingertips. Literally. But honestly, I haven’t tried any online dating app before because I believe that personal connection is not designed to be easy in the way that technological dating apps are designed to be. I think we are setting ourselves up for easy come, easy go, and afterward unpredictably declaring, “It simply didn’t work out,” when what we are actually doing is choking off a minefield of missed connections when what makes us connected and human starts to emerge. For me, if we want to create meaningful relationships, we need to put in the work to make that happen. It is true that we are already off to a bad start if we condition ourselves to believe that romantic relationships are as easy as swiping right on a cellular gadget.

  10. I haven’t tried any dating apps or online dating. I’m not into that kind of thing. There are only two reasons why I don’ have online dating experience first is that I don’t know how to start a conversation and second I don’t have the time to meet with another person that I met online. When it comes to dating or looking for a partner I want to do it the old ways but my first criteria for finding a partner is that she must not be too far away from where I live because like I have said I don’t have the time to travel to far places just to meet with someone. It will just be a waste of money if things won’t end up the way you expect.

  11. I haven’t tried to use an online dating format before up until now because for me online dating is just a new way of entertainment for those people who is bored in their own life and wanna have some fun with strangers. And I know for a fact that those people who is on the online dating has a fake profile and personal background. Online dating is not the right place for us to meet virtual strangers because we don’t know them personally. If we are rushing to find and meet our “the one” through online dating, there’s a big chance that we can be fooled at the end of the day. So use the internet wisely.

    -ACT 181

  12. To be honest, I haven’t tried any online dating before. I personally do not like online dating. I want to meet new people in person rather than to meet new people online. I prefer meeting people in real life and not over a screen. I’m scared because I feel that they are just pretending since it’s easy to make a fake profile. For me, online dating is unreliable and unsafe that’s why I haven’t tried it before. Don’t fight with me on not liking online dating, these are just my views about dating sites. Though I mentioned the negative side of it, like every coin online dating has another side of it that’s why some people try online dating. I know that not everything about online dating is bad, it provides many benefits too. As what I commented on other blog, online dating is faster, easier, more convenient and efficient than going out and taking the time out of a busy schedule to find someone, meet someone, and date someone. So, if you are currently online dating or planning to do so, there are some important things to keep in mind to stay safe. Always be careful and try not to share personal information until you have built a solid foundation of trust with them. Proceeding slowly and listening to your instincts will help you to avoid scammers. Remember, most of the online dating scams happened quickly. To conclude, online dating is fantastic and a great way to meet new friends. If you are very lucky, you may even meet the love of your life. But because there are always downsides, don’t forget to be extra careful. It is always better to be safe than sorry.

    “Meanwhile in the online world, everyone can be who they want to be. It only gets tricky when you meet them in the real world. Online dating is efficient. We’re a fast food society and now you have a pool of eligible people to choose from. Online dating is a way of procuring people.” – According to some well known authors.

    I. Well, I am not a fan of online dating. I am the kind of person who belongs to old school. Meaning, I prefer to choose some sort of courting, serenading and even hand written letters. Instead of choosing my boyfriend through internet, online applications or in a blind date. I am not really into those stuffs. Because it is too risky and online dating is an example of TAE Method -Trial And Error Method in particular. If you’re satisfied with his or her pictures that was posted online, then you tend to have some meet up with that person without knowing herself or himself personally. The most dangerous or the plot twist when you meet is that, the Expectation versus Reality. Means, the picture you saw online, doesn’t satisfy you that is why you ended up nothing. You expect something from that person but the reality version doesn’t meet that. Which results to Friendzone or worst, they can block you anytime if they don’t liked you. I don’t judge people who finds their partner online, but I think they are desperate people. Maybe because of curiosity, peer pressure and even good feedbacks. That makes them encouraged in joining or using online dating world.

    II. These are my 10 reasons why online dating doesn’t work for me:
    1. Because it is too risky
    2. It is TAE Method – Trial And Error Method
    3. Worst Expectation vs. Reality
    4. I don’t know that person seriously
    5. I don’t want instant relationship
    6. I don’t want to be judged in picture only
    7. I am not an option
    8. I prefer the boy go to my house to do courting legally
    9. If the boy really loves me, he can wait until I am ready to said “Yes, we’re in a relationship na!”
    10. I want a consistent guy who can makes me feel everyday is a special day by doing his effort personally and no guy can do that if you only see him online.

  14. To be honest, I haven’t tried any online dating before. I personally do not like online dating. I want to meet new people in person rather than to meet new people online. I prefer meeting people in real life and not over a screen. I’m scared because I feel that they are just pretending since it’s easy to make a fake profile.

  16. For their desperation to be fulfilled, people tend to engage themselves to this online platform. Searching for true love is one of the toughest challenges we take in our lives. We meet different people in different places and talk about ourselves as we get to know each other. Everyone wants that, to have a companion that he or she can lean on as they want inspiration from a person they like. Hence, by wanting that kind of concepts, people would always want to date and as technology embrace our lives, we use to have it instantly. Nowadays, even finding ‘the One’ is a lot easier than before. Overall, the main reason is the instant affection. That two words made all the people drool in the fact that in one click, they can find their ideal person which they would want to know more easily wherever they may go. Thus, they’re blinded to the online dating’s shadows that their dream partner in life may turn into everybody’s nightmare.

    In today’s environment, many of them want to have their companions in life that they can find in a heartbeat. But this never tempted me to try those platforms in my current life. Honestly, sometimes I’m curious about the feeling of having a ‘day-to-night conversation’ with my ideal gentleman. He can be my very close friend first as I continuously know him that eventually turn into my loved one when the time comes. To imagine that scene, yes, this may excite me to try it but when the negative sides of online dating appeared in my mind, I continue not to involve myself to this platform. I always say to myself that this may give me an instant pleasure and instant heartbreak at the same time. Also, the chances of the people to find their ‘the Ones’ in this platform is very little. Yes, I see several posts from different couples about their love stories which they started online. Some of the posted relationships succeed, but most of the people who use it failed. They swiped right on the wrong person who deceived them repeatedly. See how the technology poison not only the people’s mind but also blinded their hearts just to have the short term pleasure based on everybody’s display picture that behind of it is a fake person that may break everyone’s heart and soul. All in all, this made me realize that the best bridge in finding my ‘the One’ is still Him no matter how the Internet invades my whole system.

    Some of my friends or people I knew fond of using Dating Apps. They said that it was fun and exciting to meet and chat with a total stranger. They added that it is somehow beneficial, and will gives you happiness and satisfaction. But I’ve never tried any of these dating applications. Personally, I find it as a way to find your potential partner in life, and since I am not yet searching for my “The One”, I decided to not use it. And I don’t prefer meeting my partner in virtual world or online. If I would choose, I would like to meet him personally, and not through the internet. And also, I have this trust issue. I always think that most of the boys in that dating apps are just looking for past time, and it will be just a waste of time to entertain people and chat them, and eventually realized that he or she is not serious after all, and you are both looking for different things. Additionally, in the internet, it is difficult to identify who really has true identity and equipped with the personality and characteristics that you are looking for.
    Usually, the people you’ll meet in the Dating Apps are the ones who are trying to find a partner, it is either to have a serious relationship or not. According to my friends and to some post that I have read, there are some instances that you’ll meet people who only have sexual intentions for using it, or some are just want a pass time or entertainment. But of course, maybe there are still good and true people in those apps with a good intentions, but only lucky people might find them.

    **Have you tried online dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you met there?
    ***Last 2017, my friend introduced to me this online dating platform called “Neargroup”. Wherein you will be able to talk to other people, and it’s your choice if you will give your Facebook account or phone number to your chatmate so that you can have a contact and continue communicating with each other. I used NearGroup whenever I’m bored and looking for someone to talk to. And honestly, at those times, I am hoping that I will find a good guy that will make me happy in my entire life. Yah, I’m so young to think about those things, but then like what I’ve said, I was just young and wanna try, experience, and explore new things. But as time goes by, the platform that I used before whenever I am bored, became the same thing that I found boring after the 5 months of using it. After all, I didn’t regret using Neargroup because it gave me the chance to gain new friends and know different kinds of people. Some guys wanted to have meet up, but because of what I heard and learn from other’s experiences regarding meet ups with strangers, I refused to. There are also a lot of lustful and pervert guys in the platform and I think that is one of the reasons I stopped using Neargroup. Like what I’ve said, I didn’t regret using it because it gave me the chance to meet, learn, and understand new people. I also learn how to communicate and socialize towards them. And I am happy that until now, some friends that I gained from that platform are still my friends now, maybe not in actual, but at least I can say that we are still friends in our social media accounts. I also realized that I am not into online dating and I just really tried it once. Because like the author of the article above, I also think that online dating doesn’t work for me because I don’t easily give my trust to the people whom I just met online, and I prefer the traditional dating.

  19. ACT186
    I haven’t try online dating since then. I don’t know, I just don’t feel using it. I myself, have trust issues in the people I personally know and bond, what more in the people I will meet online? I also think that it is a waste time. Even if for fun, I don’t think it is worth of my spare time.

    10 REASONS WHY I THINK ONLINE DATING WOULD NOT WORK FOR ME

    1. I DONT FEEL USING IT. There is something in me that don’t give me the urge to try it. Even if I already heard it and know how it works even if I am single that time, I still don’t want to use it. I feel that it is just a waste of time.

    2. TRUST ISSUES. As I said on the first part, Im having a hard time to trust people who I know personally so what more in the people online.

    3. PRIORITY. Dating is not my priority even if I am single. If love will come then it will come. and that was the 4th reason,

    4. I ALREADY HAVE A BOYFRIEND. I am in a 4 year relationship and obviously not from an online app. haha.

    5. STORIES I HEARD. I heard and watched some stories that make them in trouble because of online app.

    6. FAKE IDENTITY. I do not want to deal with people who I don’t know.

    7. NOT SAFE. Since someone’s identity can be different online. It wasn’t safe knowing that you are talking to person who you do not personally know.

    8. NOT WORTH OF MY TIME. Time is gold, don’t settle with something thats not sure.

    9. IM NOT PRETTY. This reason is funny haha. Im not into marketing myself online of course when it comes to someone to date. Lol I have low self esteem.

    10. IM NOT GOOD IN SOCIALIZING. I am an introvert so how could someone date me online if I don’t want to talk to them haha.

  20. Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet there?
    I don’t know if I’ve considered it as an online dating. I once used the neargroup its speed-dating app but I actually not download it as app but I used it on messenger because they were connected. Its just like you message a friend on messenger, so its easy and convenient to used. So here it goes, I only used it because its boom on that time, last 2017 when I was senior highschool, and I knew it because almost of my classmates are talking and using it, so my friends and I try it. And I’m actually curious about it, how it works and how will I used it etc.. First is when I tried it I’m happy and excited because my classmates that time was happy on what they’re doing. Second is when I started it its actually good, because the persons that I chat was kind. Like I experienced kilig, because I have chatted a person who sent me his voice and sang a song. His voice was cold and good. He was also caring. We stopped chatting because I’ve got so busy and I know its not my priority. Its actually enjoying but there still people who are rude, like they using it because they want only to have sex. So when I encountered persons like that I immediately stop from using it. And I have my lost interest in using it. Like what I have I told I’ve got busy especially in school works. I did my priority and I know that I used only it not to find someone who wil I be dating but for fun and find new friends only. I learned things when I used it, like don’t trust people easily because its very different to talk online and in personal. We must still know how to identify a person if there intentional to us was good or bad. So that’s all I want to share.

  21. In today’s environment, many of them want to have their companions in life that they can find in a heartbeat. But this never tempted me to try those platforms in my current life. Honestly, sometimes I’m curious about the feeling of having a ‘day-to-night conversation’ with my ideal gentleman. He can be my very close friend first as I continuously know him that eventually turn into my loved one when the time comes. To imagine that scene, yes, this may excite me to try it but when the negative sides of online dating appeared in my mind, I continue not to involve myself to this platform. I always say to myself that this may give me an instant pleasure and instant heartbreak at the same time. Also, the chances of the people to find their ‘the Ones’ in this platform is very little. Yes, I see several posts from different couples about their love stories which they started online. Some of the posted relationships succeed, but most of the people who use it failed. They swiped right on the wrong person who deceived them repeatedly. See how the technology poison not only the people’s mind but also blinded their hearts just to have the short term pleasure based on everybody’s display picture that behind of it is a fake person that may break everyone’s heart and soul. All in all, this made me realize that the best bridge in finding my ‘the One’ is still Him no matter how the Internet invades my whole system.

  25. I haven’t tried online dating simply because I have no interest on it and by using online dating we could only get an impression based on their profiles and not by their behavior and some of the people that onto online dating are not what they seem they are, it is easy to manipulate.

    Technology is evolving day by day, and it made our lives much comfortable. We can easily shop without going to the mall, talk to people even though your hundreds of miles away, study without going to campus and even finding your one true love and we owe it to technology. In today’s world online dating is now a thing to everyone regardless of their age, dreaming of finding the right one. Some of my friends have already tried using dating apps, some are for fun and some are genuinely looking for the one. Even though my friends tried to persuade me to try online dating, I always said no. Never in my 19 years of existence in this world that I imagined myself using those online dating sites, because I have this principles of mine that I do believe and treasure, and that is, if you want to have a genuine and true love you don’t have to search for it, it will just come naturally. Also, I want to finish my study first before anything else and being in a relationship right now doesn’t even cross in my mind. Nowadays there are lots of fake people roaming around the internet specially online dating sites which is scary but there are also people who just want to have fun and has an intention to really find true relationship. There are also people who are only bored with their life and wants to have a little spice in their so called life.

  27. Gail B. Arciaga ACT 182

    Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet there

    Many teenagers nowadays loves exploring and meeting a lot of new different people. I, as a teenager have already tried online dating though I cannot even consider it as a date because we did not meet personally. Way back then I downloaded bumble, an application where the women tend to make a first move on sending a message to a guy. I did it on a purpose because my friend asked a help from me if I can invite people to join him on some networking stuff. Usually, the guys that you are going to meet online are those guy who are sexually-driven or usually has a raging hormones which is really disgusting so I tend to delete the application afterwards.

  28. As technology continues to evolved, online platforms continues to arise. There are so many social media platforms that is being developed for the people to have opportunity to meet and have interaction through other people in form of social media. One of the most popular social media platform is the dating applications, where you can meet your ideal partner. I didn’t use a dating application, for the reason that you must not find a man that will be your partner because the man will find you and pursue you to be his girl. I take relationship seriously, and dating app is not an ideal tool for me. Relationship is not an experiment, it is a commitment that should be taken seriously. It takes time to find a man that will be your ideal husband, but waiting will give you a great reward.

    Yes, I’ve tried online dating before, I used omegle and tinder because I became curious about some random posts talking about it and it is popular so I installed it and try it. My main point in there is to just chat about random things when I got bored and I’m meeting random people with different traits. In omegle, you will meeta completely random stranger,you will just out your interest and that’s it. At first, all the people that I’ve encountered are okay, we just talk random things because they are just bored also but when months passed by, I realized that it is just normal in omegle to encountered a person telling something that isn’t your forte so in the end I quickly disconnected it. After a years, I suddenly stop using omegle. In tinder, I just tried it once but I deleted it the same day that I installed it because I got bored also, it’s just I don’t like it anymore to try online dating sites.

  31. Way back 2016, 2017 and 2018 I’ve tried so many dating app not because I want to find a love or my soulmate but because I’m bored and I just need a person to talk in my free time. Tinder is one of those dating app that I used, it is a mbile dating app that allows users to locate other single in the geographic area. I have two account here, one is for female and the other one is for male. And because of that I encountered different kinds of people, there’s a shy people, kind people, also a boring people and lastly, people who’s only interested in sex. There are times that I entertain them but sometimes I ignored them. Another online dating that I used is neargroup. To be honest, this is the online dating that I used for a year. Many people here are only horny but actually I try to get along to their trip and it was very fun, but then there are some people whose usually addicted to the sex. So I stop it.
    Using Online dating is not totally a satisfying thing and not for love thing. Just like what the article said if you are looking for your soulmate don’t use online dating because you can’t find your true love there. Many peolla are using fake profiles, sometimes you will belive that he/she is a good person but then its a wrong judgement just like what the article said. And lastly it is only a platform for pass time, just to spend time when we are bored.

    Actually I’m not against the online dating but people are just to abusive and arrogant in using it. Just be careful on who you are chatting especially that there are news about people who are rape and killed by the person that they met in online dating or social media.

  33. I tried an online dating app, once. I tried tinder but deleted it minutes after using it. I just tried tinder out of curiosity and it didn’t really work for me. First, people there are kind of flirty which I am not. I am boring so it’s easy for them to ghost me because I actually am an boring “mate” to talk to. I admit it that I am a boring person and there’s nothing interesting in me. There are actually few but it’s not attractive to what society wants. I am so intimidating specially if I am talking. I just don’t like the idea of online dating that’s why I’m not into it. I want to focus on meeting actual people than meeting people online because it actually feels good if you have someone to vibe with and not just someone to talk with. Besides, I have lots of friends that I can meet anytime so online dating app is a no-no.

    People there are very flirty and aggressive. I won’t generalize because there are also people there who are just bored that’s they’re there. Some people just want someone they can talk to. Some people want someone they can have sex. Some wants an actual relationship. Some are just bored and just want to know how it works, I belong to them.

    I don’t think online dating would work for me because I already have someone I can actually meet anytime. Someone I knew for a very long time so— no. But if I would enumerate reasons why online dating would work for me, here’s some:

    1. It’s safer than many other conventional dating methods.
    2. I can quickly meet people with the same values, beliefs and interests.
    3. It depends on my own pace.
    4. It’s easy to use.
    5. It’s so accessible.
    6. It’s convenient.
    7. I can multitask things while using it.
    8. I’d get to know the person better by going along the ride.
    9. It’s cheap.
    10. No awkward first dates.

    Kevin Aldrin De Guzman – ACT184

  34. Honestly I haven’t tried any online dating application or site before, because for me it’s a waste of time. People should meet people personally because in virtual world we could be someone who wasn’t us. It is too dangerous to meet or date someone you doesn’t know personally, even though you might know him/her online by asking this person but we are not sure if that that’s true or not. As a matter of fact, social media is a convenient tool for us to communicate to others we know personally and not to strangers. For me it is nonsense to visit those app or site because most of the people there are just looking for someone to date. Most of the people there are looking for fling or someone to have sex. Hence, an individual wouldn’t get serious relationship by using this, probably because people on those app just based on the physical appearance. In fact, you could fool someone by your apperance on those app because it is vitual. Additionally, why would people choose someone they don’t purely know, rather than people surround them. And instead for looking for someone, why not just wait for the right people who would come to our life. And surely God would provide us someone who would be part of our life. Lastly, true love waits.

    No. 1 Question

  35. Though social media and any other means of communicating to people has already became modern, tinder for example, I still close my mind to the idea of online dating. Even before creating my own facebook account, my sister told to beware about the strangers that I will encounter in social media. Especially the time today that there were so many people, teenage girls specifically, that were raped and murdered just because of meeting the sheep they spend time with online, who later became monsters.

    The usual people that one can encounter in this kind of situation are those that were only looking for a “fling”, playtime, or just to fill up their boredom. I don’t now if there is, but there might also be people who already found thir one and only in this kind of flatform. Lucky them because they’re just one of a million desperately waiting for their match, but rather met the wrong ones.

    As for me, online dating won’t really work. And it is for these ten reason:
    1. I don’t want to put myself on uncertainty and harm.
    2. I am not comfortable talking to people I am not close with.
    3. If ever I’ll be in a relationship, I want it to be serious.
    4. I don’t have a consistent access to internet.
    5. I want to see whom I talking to, not just through screen.
    6. Its easier to talk orally than to type it.
    7. I prefer if a men will court a lady in the old way.
    8. I don’t like it when there’s this barrier (gadgets) within us.
    9. I probably think that my parents won’t like the idea of it.
    10. I don’t like to meet pervert people, because some of them are like that.

  36. a.) I haven’t tried online dating, yes I’ve got some people that I talked to but it was differ from online dating. It may sound old but I like knowing people personally, and for me you can really see the sincerity of a people through his gestures not just by his words. Most of the people I knew from online was girls that I have the same interest like celebrities, sports, etc. I believe in saying that if you got something easily, it will disappear easily. Just like in social media that what if all the connections you had was gone it will include the relationship that you build because you’ve never known each other personally. It’s a risky thing, maybe it works for others and not for me, but it’s up to you on how would you manage yourself in entering this kind of situation.

    We’re living in era where capturing moment with different social media platforms. My 19 year’s of existence that born of new generation, I never tried to online dating. Because find someone in online is very risky, cause we don’t have a assurance that the person you have a conversation with you is telling the truth and showing who is her/him.
    Not all in social media is true. More of them are they called ” TOXIC ” who are not in Good in controlling there feeling that easily post in social media just to find someone to care for them.

  39. I am a 19 year old college student who does not really know how online dating and dating apps work, so no I have never tried online dating or the latter. Besides I do not know how it works, the thoughts of dating never crossed my mind yet. I am currently really indulge in studying and pursuing my dreams and degree, so I do not give much time in having a relationship with the opposite gender. But, I would love to try it in the future. I think when I have much more leisure time and I am ready to be in a relationship… that would be really interesting.

    I do not really agree in online dating and dating apps. But, if I would to try it. I think these were the ten (10) reasons why online dating would work for me:
    1. I am really awkward in person. So, talking behind the screens of our phones would gave me some confidence.
    2. For me, I cringe whenever Public Display of Affection (PDA) is anywhere so online dating means no PDA. Give me more time to accept it.
    3. I would have more time to know him.
    4. I would have more time to be prepared to meet him in person.
    5. No too personal attachments. I kind of do not like it.
    6. I am not cool, but I can be one online (lmao).
    7. I am too sassy in person, so maybe I can manage to control it online.
    8. I am impulsive. Sometimes, I really do not think before I reply to something. So, in this way, I could have all the time in the world to think before replying.
    9. I love comfortable silence, and dating online would give me it.
    10. Personally, I am a closed book. So, he has all the time to open that book online. Then, I would not be uptight when we meet.

    However, having been said that, I still do not agree nor I am into online dating and dating apps. As per article, reality does not fully evolve online. It can be manipulated. I and every one of us can be manipulated. So, I still prefer the traditional dating. Nothing can compare to the comfort a person beside us can give than virtual reality.

The reason why I tried online dating is first I want to experience it and yes because it is trending nowadays and also to meet new friends. Usually the kind of people I met are looking for sex I don’t know why but they use this online dating platform just to find someone to match their interest. I also met someone who are very kind, they give advice and tips about school etc.

    Yes, I tried online dating haha. Like Tinder, Near Group and Omegle. I tried because i was bored. I downloaded it because I want to talk with someone. But I don’t like to have a relationship or a commitment in online dating sites or platforms. Online sites has a lot of pros and cons. Just to add some thoughts, Effective dating definitely needs to take place in person, the same way your grandfather did it, but I see no good reason why meeting people to date in the first place can’t be systematic and efficient. Yes, there’s something special about the romance of meeting someone in public and hitting it off right away, but that rarely happens—and for the most important mission in most of our lives, it makes no sense to crush your ability to meet great people to try a first date with because it’s not as good a story to have met them online. I have a friend that goes on two or three first dates every week with people he already knows are potentially good personality and physical matches for him—that’s how you find the right person, and good luck keeping up with him meeting people the old-fashioned way. And for people who have no interest in serious dating and just want to find people to hook up with? Online is a much better way to accomplish that too.

  43. I have never tried online dating before because I do not have any interest in having a romantic partner. I have to consider my priorities in life like my studies before anything else. Besides, I am contented on the love and happiness that my family and friends giving me. On the other hand, If I would like to have a partner, I prefer meeting and knowing him personally in an old fashion way rather than meeting him online because I think it would not be genuine if a relationship just started online. Moreover, nonverbal cues can be of help in knowing a person. Online dating may work for other people however, I have encountered some people who were just deceived by others online and the relationship were not successful. That is why it is important to be careful in trusting strangers, especially we are living in the modern world where there are many people who have bad intentions.

  44. Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet there (15pts)

    I haven’t tried any form of online dating before simply because I’m a type of person who doesn’t want to develop my relationship through online dating apps or social media. For me the sincerity is not that present when it comes to online dating, the best way to know a person who you want become a girlfriend/boyfriend is through personal encounter because in that way you can analyze or evaluate the personality of a person when it comes to real life situations. Another reason why I don’t want to try online dating is because of anonymity, the person I may encounter online may be tricky in a way that not all the informations present in her profile are fact or true and every information could be transformed or easily manipulated just in a few seconds and with that it could be a waste of time. Most of the people lie on their online profile to look idealistic to be pleased by many people. As what I have observed online dating sometimes leads to having a fuck buddy or seeking for sex, it may sounds too OA but there are times that it is true. So for me it is still better to date someone in an old fashioned way, it could be time consuming but it is more worth it and every moment lasts.

For me the sincerity is not that present when it comes to online dating, the best way to know a person who you want become a girlfriend/boyfriend is through personal encounter because in that way you can analyze or evaluate the personality of a person when it comes to real life situations. Another reason why I don’t want to try online dating is because of anonymity, the person I may encounter online may be tricky in a way that not all the informations present in her profile are fact or true and every information could be transformed or easily manipulated just in a few seconds and with that it could be a waste of time. Most of the people lie on their online profile to look idealistic to be pleased by many people. As what I have observed online dating sometimes leads to having a fuck buddy or seeking for sex, it may sounds too OA but there are times that it is true. So for me it is still better to date someone in an old fashioned way, it could be time consuming but it is more worth it and every moment lasts.

    Christian Jay Dl. Villanueva ACT185

  46. Though social media and any other means of communicating to people has already became modern, tinder for example, I still close my mind to the idea of online dating. Even before creating my own facebook account, my sister told to beware about the strangers that I will encounter in social media. Especially the time today that there were so many people, teenage girls specifically, that were raped and murdered just because of meeting the sheep they spend time with online, who later became monsters.

    The usual people that one can encounter in this kind of situation are those that were only looking for a “fling”, playtime, or just to fill up their boredom. I don’t now if there is, but there might also be people who already found their one and only in this kind of platform. Lucky them because they’re just one of a million desperately waiting for their match, but rather met the wrong ones.

    As for me, online dating won’t really work. And it is for these ten reason:
    1. I don’t want to put myself on uncertainty and harm.
    2. I am not comfortable talking to people I am not close with.
    3. If ever I’ll be in a relationship, I want it to be serious.
    4. I don’t have a consistent access to internet.
    5. I want to see whom I talking to, not just through screen.
    6. Its easier to talk orally than to type it.
    7. I prefer if a men will court a lady in the old way.
    8. I don’t like it when there’s this barrier (gadgets) within us.
    9. I probably think that my parents won’t like the idea of it.
    10. I don’t like to meet pervert people, because some of them are like that.

    ACT 183

  47. Yes I’ve tried before, I’ve used Tinder and Neargroup, I used those platform because my classmates told me that it will match the characteristics that you are finding and the people from that platform are not sexual hahahah. And the people I’ve been met there are those people who are sometimes broken or bored and want to have a serious talks and not to waste there time.

    10 WHY IT SHOULD WORK FOR ME
    1. It’s still stigmatized
    2. Everyone is now doing it
    3. Lots of choices means it easy to choose
    4. It’s a great way to mees interesting people
    5. It’s not scary talking to a stranger
    6. Falling inlove still requires vulnerability
    7. It’s not about you
    8. People who seems “meh” online don’t improve in person
    9. Timing is as important as compatibility
    10. You really should look up from your smart phone once in a while

  48. To be honest, in my 19 years of existence I haven’t tried online dating even when I was longing for love and attention from someone. For me, I think online dating is not the key to satisfy my needs. First of all, people lie on their online dating profiles and with that you can’t trust the person right away. It is also an attitude of dishonesty and I really don’t want to be with someone like that. Second, online dating might lead to harm due to different people who have different intentions. Some uses a certain application just to make fling with someone and end up hurting someone’s feeling. Also, there are lots of men who are using online dating just to satisfy their sensuality; that’s why people should be aware of the photos that they will use or send to someone. Lastly, I think that a person you met with someone won’t last because it is truly hard to be with someone who you really don’t know personally. Besides, I won’t let myself talk to stranger and I still believe with God’s perfect timing. Online dating is not the best way to find your perfect one, you should be contented on what you have and wait for the right person on the right timing.

    SANTIAGO, KIMBERLY ANN C.
    ACT 182

  49. I haven’t tried online dating apps or websites but what I already tried is the omegle, it is a site were you can talk to any strangers about anything, you can also put a filter to chat a person who has the same interest with you, what I like personally on omegle is that unlike on the dating sites you were there simply because you are looking for a date or a person to flirt with but on omegle the person who enters the sites has a different reasons why they are using the site, many says they just want to release their frustrations, some are looking for a person to chatters with about their hobbies and passion and others are in the site because they are looking for a F**k Buddy . You can chat in any type of person anonymously unlike on the dating sites you have to put a picture of you, you enter something about yourself and other information that can be used by the outlaws and criminals on their businesses. So why I’m not using a dating site ? Simply because for me online dating sites is just a waste of time just like what is stated above, and I think personally those people chats you because you have a good looks good and educational degrees but they never really love the person, they are just attracted to the traits and characteristics or achievement of the person who they are talking with and another thing is what if behind that good looks is just a wolf hiding on a sheep’s clothing . That is why tons and tons of people were became a victim of a cyber crime or even sexual harassment or scam annually. Remember that internet is not a safest place to meet and trust people.

    ACT-182

    •Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet there

    Honestly, I’ve tried to used online dating applications and I see how toxic the world of social media is. Different kinds of people you will meet means different attitudes you will see. And as I observed that most of people uses this is because of pleasure. Some of them tend to release their lust. Well, that’s the world of online dating applications. Their is a small possibility that you will meet a curious person that you can tell your story. Online dating applications is fun just because you can meet other people but for me it is more fun when you know the person personally. The feeling is really different from those person whom you can talk face to face. I think the possibility of having a long relationship to those person who knows you personally is high than those people who you meet in internet because in personal their a mutual feelings. In everyday you are with them, you slowly get to know them better. Unlike, online dating applications, the connection is only through social media.

  51. RC ACT-182, i tried dating online for a long time for example the one that i’m used for dating online is omegle.In omegle you can choose to the person that had your same interest. In this modern day, we had so much advance technology in this world you can easily find dating people in online but before it is to hard to find a person without technology you can find by true encounter or meet up but now you eventually talked online but with some risks because you even not know who is your encountered with whether the person is good or bad many people is encountered to that cases so become aware to the people you’ve encountered. But today i stop omegle because i don’t wanna lose time consume in dating online for me it is not helping me in studies so i just stop it. friends in online dating is okay with me. that’s all

  52. Christine Sael ACT184
    I haven’t tried online dating before, because i think people use to date online are the people who prefer to socialize in many people. I have a friend who use online dating sites to find someone who she can be with, I doesn’t oppose using online dating sites to meet new people but it has a high risk. I can see in news some scam, rape and harassment because she tried to go on oeyebol or meet ups. I also believe that a sincere person know how to present his or herself in personally.

  53. Each and every one around us is different from one another. We are unique in our own special ways. In addition we have our own opinions or perspectives in life.

    In my 18 years of existence, I admit it that I haven’t tried any online dating app or websites because I believe that the person who will love you unconditionally will come in the right time just trust GOD. One of the reason is that I don’t easily trust people online because I have friends that are victims of poser, they fell in love with the the poser. And also. the main reason is that I already have a boyfriend since 2014 and having this kind of relationship requires time and a strong foundation and because of that I develop an idea in me that I have so much respect for everyone’s relationship.I am faithful to him that is why I haven’t tried any online dating app or websites. In addition, I am scared also to meet other people just in the internet I want to date a guy whom I meet personally. Furthermore, my parents are really strict and conservative.

  54. Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet there.
    In the generation today, we can easily do things without our parents knowing it because of the technology that we are having right now, Having all types of social media to update our friends of what we are doing. Having Online Dating, honestly I haven’t tried it before. It feels like I will not understand myself on having a date online. I still believe that having a love story is a kind of experience that you want to know your partner more without a barrier. I still want to feel the feeling of receiving a hand written letter from future partner.
    We don’t know the risk of trying the online date especially today in our generation. I think it is not safe though for others it was good experience.

  55. In our time, Online dating are now a common way to meet people, though there are many who prefer not to use them like me. I am not a fan of online dating at all. Though a lot of my friends use them and narrate the fun experiences they’ve had, the idea doesn’t resonate with me. I think the probability of meeting a person through friends or family at a party or a get-together is more convincing to me.

  56. A. (The Basics of Online Dating-1st question)
    Today, some of the people tend to use online to date or to meet someone. Some of the people in a society are using applications to find a man or women they are wanting to. In this kind of situation, this may happen because they are trying to look for a partner wherein they can’t find or meet in person. People who used online dating has their advantages and disadvantages. They can have their advantage if they are lucky to meet the right one thru this. Example is the vlogger I am watching, she met her husband thru this online dating and now they are living happily. Also online dating can have its disadvantage in terms of the people not properly using it. Some can be a victim because of the inappropriate act they do. People wants to use online dating to meet the person they are dreaming or the person they are looking for to be in a relationship. They must use it in a good way and not to fool or give a fake personality because in today’s generation, social media or online application is one of the top thing people are using now and we can’t say who can be the victim.

    B. (Ten reasons online dating doesn’t work for me-1st question)
    I never tried to use online dating and also not in my mind to try it. I am person who can’t easily trust a person. Even in my personal account like in facebook, instagram, twitter etc., I don’t easily add and accept a friend or follow request. I used to private my accounts because I don’t want that other people I don’t know will follow me and used to see what I post or to see what are the content of my social media accounts. There are times that I used to public my accounts but I easily tend to back it private again. Also, I never tried it because my mindset about online dating is that, you will encounter so many people and as a woman I am not that typical girl who is comfortable to talk with a man that I don’t know. There is also an afraid feeling that if I tried to use it maybe there is such a bad thing may happen. That’s why, my characteristic that I don’t easily trust other people is the reason why I never tried to use online dating because in my legal age now, I never think to try that kind of situation because of my trust issue and honestly, I can’t see myself that I will try it.

    -ACT185

  57. I haven’t tried online dating before and I have no plans too because for me online dating is not the right place to meet strangers. Not everyone you meet online are real. Some of them are just using fake information to be liked and meet people’s expectation. The fact that social media becomes toxic nowadays. It is not also safe to be with someone who you only met online because you don’t know them personally and I think it is not enough to get to know them more. I still believe in traditional way and online dating doesn’t sounds good to me. I also have trust issues that’s why I’m not into online dating and I don’t think it will work for me. In my opinion, meeting and knowing people personally is still the best.

  60. 1. Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet there

    -I’ve never tried online dating before but I tried one site but it is not for dating. The site is Omegle which you can talk to stranger if you both have the same interest then you will be match and can talk to each other. I tried omegle because my friends said so haha we have an agreement that we will use omegle and try to find each other but we didn’t get a chance to find each other and we ended up to a stranger. The people that I met there are not all of them has a bad intention, some of them just want someone to talk to, to talk about their problems that maybe they are not comfortable talking it to their close friends or family so they use omegle to lessen their problems, some people just want to have friend. I haven’t tried dating apps because I’m not really fond of flirting to other people that you really don’t know. I don’t want to waste my time by flirting to that people because I know that most of them are not serious and just want to play some people feelings.

  61. I haven’t tried online dating before simply because I’m not interested with it, besides, dating is not my priority so.. it’s not my thing. There are different kinds of people who are into online dating and we don’t know if the people we might encounter are real. Some can have a different attitude in real life. Yes it’s a trend since it’s really easy to use but we can’t really trust the internet. For me it’s much better to meet people personally than online because we get to know them well. We get to judge their personality and not only their looks.

    In today’s post-modern society, dating practices are both vast and varied. People meet their romantic partners in any number of locations including at work, at the bar, and increasingly, on the Internet. Since technology is nearly all the spheres of our lives, online dating has become very popular over the past decade.

    In my own opinion, people join online dating site because it is one of the easy way to find the kind of person you’re looking for. We often have an idea in our head of what our ideal date would look like, listen to and enjoy doing, but it can be tricky to find them among the hundreds of people you come into contact with on a daily basis. With online dating you can search for exactly the kind of person you are looking for, then review all of the matches that meet your criteria before deciding whether to contact them, making finding the kind of person you want.

    Physical appearance is also one of the factor that explains the popularity of online dating. People in the real world tend to be so conscious about it that they don’t feel confident to express their feelings and thoughts, and that keeps them away from people. This has been going on for years, but now they have found a way out. Through online dating sites, they have an existence in the real world but they have also a virtual world to explore, where they can create a new identity that might or might not be their true selves and then try to get attention in their process to meet new people.

    Other reasons why I think people try to search a mate online is that some people are so busy with work or other life responsibilities that there is simply no time to go out and meet people on a date. Many people might not also fond of common places for meeting new people, like pubs and clubs. Some persons are also too shy to approach a guy/girl they could be interested in so they tend to try and find their matches in online dating sites.

    Dating sites are an additional source for meeting people. For me, It’s not about desperation. Whatever the reason is for so many people trying online dating, it seems this social revolution is not going to reach an end soon. The current fact is that everyday many people use online dating or social networks to find real partners for friendship, dating and even marriage.

  63. Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before?

    In my whole existence I haven’t tried any online dating app and I think I will never try it. I believe that the people who used those applications or sites are those people who are desperate to have a relationship. One reason I hate those dating apps is because I don’t trust people easily unless I have known them for a while, we cannot trust people who we just chat or entertain on those apps or sites and we cannot just know them easily and fully through those apps. And those things are proven since I’ve known from my friends who used those apps who have experienced being dumped or been played by those people they’ve chat on those sites. Second reason I don’t use those sites is because it is a waste of time, I mean we can spend our time in many stuff and why bother use those apps. If only the things we can get from those apps are lies. Lastly, because I know that those apps cannot dictate what we will have on the future it is still God’s way. We just have to wait and be patient, because time can indeed tell. We just have to Trust God because he knows everything in our life.

  64. As technology grows, people’s curiosity also grows, which is the reason why we can see tons of new applications nowadays. There are a lot of free apps and you can also use it anytime you want. One of these are the online dating apps, wherein people seem to be really fond of using it these days. Personally, I think people try to use it because they want to have someone to talk to, even if it means talking to a stranger, because sometimes, having a conversation with a person who you don’t really know is a bit nice. Others also use it because they are bored or they want to make fun of other people, but the most common reason is finding love. As time passes by, people seem to lose their patience especially when it comes to finding their one true love. It’s quite sad actually, because finding the right person isn’t easy as it seems.

  65. Khianna Demela Ello. ACT 185

    Have you tried online dating before? If you will ask me if I do that I will say yes, I already tried online dating. I tried a lot of platform or apps and I don’t remember the names, I tried omegle and to be honest I used messenger as dating app hahaha. Why did I do that? simply when I’m bored I browse online and look for someone who I can talk to. I talked to strangers, yeah totally stranger because I didn’t even know what he looks like, the only thing that matters to me is that I am talking to someone. In omegle you can talk to a lot of people with different personalities. Also there’s a lot of foreigner in that browser app, I meet different kinds of people, some are kind and gentleman but majority are naughty and dirty minded people. There’s nothing wrong of using those online app in your life. You just have to know your limitation and don’t be stupid enough to give your personal information and especially don’t be irresponsible to trust your body to them.

    Because I can’t post my answer to the other article I will just live this here, to the question why people try online dating?

    We use technology in our everyday lives. They say technology make our life easier especially for communication. With the birth of social media websites, people all around the world have the ability to talk to each other face to face with skype or messenger, but because of the social media people took advantage of it and made an account for fun and to fool people. For my personal opinion, people try online dating because of curiosity and fun. Teenage life is the age where people do a lot of stupid things and experimentation to fit in to the society. Others try this for good intention and other try this for bad. A person wanted to feel that someone is giving importance to her, so if she didn’t find the attetion she wanted to get she go to online world where she think there’s a lot of people who will understand her. It always come up to curiosity. Why? because if people try alcohol and drugs then why not online dating? A lot of people say that “wala namang mawawala sayo pag sinubukan mo” and I think those are the reason why people try online dating.

  66. * Have you tried online dating before? What platform and why? What are the usual kind of people you meet there?

    Online dating isn’t new to me since I’ve tried it already, specifically, Tinder application. My curiosity about the content pushed me to try it. I don’t have any intention to find love, partner in life, FWB (friends with benefits) or ONS (one night stand). I just really want to know what’s in there. As I visited the app, I’ve read their bios, look at their pictures and know their respective schools. You’ll meet different kinds of people there. Some of them just want to chill and find someone they can talk with, some wants flirting, and most of them wants a FWB relationship or ONS. Base on my experience, all the guys I’ve encountered in there were good and nice people because no one harassed or say nasty things on me. I don’t see anything wrong with it actually, it depends on what kind of person you are. If you want them to respect you, then don’t give them motive. Well, everything has it ends so I uninstalled it. It’s still better to have someone you fully know in person than those you just met online. They just like you based on your physical appearance not because of who you really are.

    DORADO, JULINAR Y.
    ACT 183

  67. I have never tried to use an online dating app or try online dating before because I think it is not necessary and I don’t feel the need to use it. I believe that you cannot find the person you want to spend the rest of your life in the online world. I believe that relationships through online produce shallow and untrue love. Because you can’t truly know and love someone by just texting and chatting together. I also know that online dating has a lot of disadvantages like there is a tendency that the person you are talking to is just a poser. You are not sure that they are what they say they are, because it is easy to fake everything online. Lastly, I believe that you can find true love by knowing the person through experiences and memories.
    There are different kinds of people which you can meet online and I think the usual person that you meet online are negative people. These are the people who used these apps because they are desperate to find someone to flirt with. Sometimes these are the people who flirt with someone then ask them to send some uncensored stuff and also because of lust. Some people try this for fun or just because they just want to have someone to talk with.

  68. Labayne, Grace Joy D. ACT-184

    Honestly, i have tried online dating app before. It was tinder. The only reason why i used tinder is because i am broken hearted that time which is also a famous reason why people do online dating. I have no intentions in meeting those person that i have matched. All i wanted was a person to talk to because that time i am used to talking to him but suddenly it was gone. The people i met in tinder was mostly guys who just wants ‘fubu’ or what we call fuck buddy. Whenever i encounter that kind of person, i automatically don’t talk to them anymore because i don’t want to be in that situation.

  69. Honestly, I tried to use online dating sites because my friends forced me to make an account on tinder for fling purposes. They are tired to see me as single in our group and they want me to experience to have one. When I used it I don’t consider it as a date because I haven’t met anyone personally. Some people I used to chat through online dating sites are funny. Some have sense of humour they shared jokes and stories that are actually fun. Some people are horny. They are looking for a one night stand. They will compliment you at first then suddenly they will asking for it. I blocked these kind of people. Some people are smart. They will share some knowledge and they responded as well-educated person. Some wants to spend their free time only because whenever they get bored on the conversation they would end it or they would find another one. Some people using it even they are still committed or in a relationship. I don’t know the reason why but I have experienced on chatting someone who are still in a relationship, he didn’t tell me, I only found out through his facebook (FBI ?). Some people are bisexual, it doesn’t work on me because I’m straight.

    Online dating sites doesn’t work for me and I am strongly agree on the post of author. It is just a waste of time and true love cannot easily be found through finding it using online, it takes time and it will come unexpectedly.

  70. I never tried nor want to do online dating because real things must be seen by the naked eye and I myself am not desperate to look for a partner online but rather to have someone by my side where I can see them personally everyday and have a real and faithful relationship rather than doing it online.

  71. I haven’t tried online dating before and I don’t plan on trying it because first of all, I’m not comfortable of talking to people whom I don’t know personally especially when I know that the intention is something more than friendship. Being a fangirl ever since I was young, I had a lot of friends whom I met online because of the idols and celebrities we mutually support but all of them are girls because I’m not really comfortable talking to boys I don’t know. Second, if ever I get in to a relationship, I want it to be the first and last just like my mother that’s why I’ve never been in to relationships before. Last, I prefer people whom I already know because at least I already know what kind of people they are because some are only good at first and are just trying to impress the person they like.

    With online dating apps, most people there are just showing all the good things about them that would make you think that they’re perfect for you but in reality, there’s still a lot of things you don’t know about them. Well, it works for some people because some found the love of their life through dating sites/apps but with me, I don’t think it’ll work because I believe that I don’t have to find the right person for me because in God’s perfect timing, the right person will come.

  72. ACT 181 Lester John B. Noces
    Online dating I’ve tried is Omegle, it is a great way to meet new friends. When using Omegle, it will pick someone else at random and let you talk one-on-one. To help you stay safe, chats are anonymous unless you tell someone who you are , and you can stop a chat at any time. Predators have been known to use Omegle, so please be careful. Well aside from you kept your identity to others I use it just to kill excess time of mine.
    Ten reasons why it would work for you is:
    First and foremost, you both are strangers.
    Second, it is easy to access.
    Third, it requires you, who you wanted to talked to.
    Fourth, just pass the I am not a robot test.
    Fifth, people you talked to is nice. I guess lol.
    Sixth, it is easy to end convo if you want to.
    Seventh, it is also to find new one.
    Eight, it is nice to talked people arround the university belt.
    Second to the last, your identity will not easily known.
    And lastly, the most important just try it. Lol.

  73. Jacklyn mapalo act 186
    Yes already did! Through Omegle, messenger IG, etc. I did that because I was bored and my friends are also doing that thing so I tried too, and I was single that time, dating online is not easy but it was fun getting some other people that you didn’t know personally I was nervous that time at first we became just friends and fell in love with each other but at the end it didn’t work but it’s okay atleast I experienced something that I didn’t expect.

  74. No I’m not because I dont trust anyone easier, I think I could spend a lot of time messaging or chatting but that doesnt mean It will help me to predict if I am really going to like that person or not. And maybe im going to dissappoint if doesnt meet my expectation. And I will be proud if the person that i like is the person I found not in social media or what we called that online. Sometimes when you are online you cannot really be sure if your chatmate is really good you can based only in their appearance because theyre just hiding their true personality because you dont know them in person you can only based on their account information.

    If neargroup is considered as dating app, then I must say that I try online dating app. Way back when I was in Grade 12 me and my friends, tried it out of curiousity, boredom and just for fun. At first it was fun because we got to talk to different people and somehow I enjoy talking with them I learn a lot from them. I see their perspective in life but as time goes by I realized that this app was dangerous for me so I stop it. Normally, the people I talk with was like me, they try this dating app out of boredom and curiousity and some were finding their “the one”.

  76. Honestly, I’ve used online dating apps/websites before such as omegle and tinder, but I don’t actually use it anymore. That time where I used it is because my friends told me to do so. They said that it was fun and you can meet a lot of people from other countries. I don’t like the idea at first, but I tried it anyway. When I tried omegle, wherein it is a website where you can talk to strangers and it doesn’t require you to make an account and you can disconnect immediately if you didn’t like the person. I’ve met a lot of guys from other countries and most of them are horny, but not all because there were nice guys too. I have a friend from Argentina where I met him on omegle two years ago, and up until now, we still talk to each other. I also used tinder because my friends told me to try it and just because I’m bored. It is an app where it requires you to make an account and set an icon so people can see what you look like. This is an app where you swipe right if you like the person then left if not, then you can chat with that person if you both liked each other. I’ve met one guy but we didn’t have a lot of conversation so I decided to uninstall it. I haven’t used both of these apps for such a long time because of my studies and it’s not even my first priority so why would I bother to use it again?

    1. What are your thoughts about people who form a FWB ( Friends with benefits) relationship  or are active sexually by the use of online dating apps and sites?

    My thoughts on people who form a friends with benefits relationship should not exist. Why? It is uneccessary to have sex in your friend without strings attached between the two of you. Its not a relationship, it is lust. What if one of you may fall in love because of your doings and the other one doesn’t care for you because it is just sex for him.   I sympathtize the one who falls in love because friends woth benefits relationship is noy a win win situation. I also believe that sex is sacred and you will do if you’re married and if you really love the person. You use that app just to satisty each others lust. Why don’t you find a real one, love her and marry her.

    2. Give 10 reasons why it wouldn’t work for you.
    Online dating wouldn’t work for me because;

    1. First, I am afraid of people that I don’t meet in person thinking that they have a different motif on you.

    2. I am an over thinker person, sometimes I think that they are sindicates using that app thinking that they will track and harm me.

    3. I don’t have an internet in the house and I don’t have a load everytime.

    4. I hate to meet a pervert person in an online dating app.

    5. Some people who use online dating wants to find a sex partner and I don’t want to meet people like them.

    6. I am more onto extrovert thing.

    7. I don’t believe people who use online dating that they want to have a serious relationship in that app.

    8. I have that feeling that they will be dissapointed on me when they meet me in person. I hate that feeling!

    9. If I’m bored, I’m not holding my phone I always buy a food and eat it until I don’t feel bored anymore.

    10. Lastly, I have a boyfriend and I love him so much. ?

  78. I haven’t tried online dating before because I’m too scared to meet up with people that I met online in person. I also watched news that there was a lot of women that were raped and killed by the people they met online. And I prefer to watch anime, korean dramas, and movies than to chat with strangers. I’m not also in rush to be in a relationship. There are also people that uses fake profile in dating sites, they might have a bad intention — it’s common for people to lie in their online profile than be completely honest.

  79. I have not tried online dating ever since I knew social media. I was not a fan of talking to other people without at least seeing their faces.

    In my junior high school days, when online dating was rampant, I did not think of trying online dating because I had a crush in our school. My crush was more important than talking to someone I do not know. Also, during my senior high school days, the online dating is still rampant but I still did not try it because I was focused on my studies. I do not have the reason to try online dating because I had my friends and family around me back then. Believe it or not, online dating is a waste of time for me. I really do not talk to strangers, in real world or virtual world. That is why I did not try online dating also.

    Maybe you are asking right now, wasn’t I curious? Well, to ask your question, I was, but I still did not try it. What I did was ask my friends who have tried it and they told me how it goes. I know that online dating apps (NearGroup, Omegle, Tinder, etc.) have different features and processes. That was why even though I did not try it, at the very least I knew how it goes.

    As a grown up, I think online dating is not a good platform for finding your “the one”, because most of the people who are using it are there to have some fun only. They are making it as their past time. For me, it is better to find your love in the real world.

    I think trying online dating will be a great experience with those people who are single. Unfortunately, I haven’t tried it before. It is because I believe that I couldn’t find the right person with those online dating apps. There are lot of people who are using these apps just to have flings, temporary partners, or maybe they are just bored and wanted to have a short conversation with a stranger, and I don’t want to be a victim of those people. I don’t want to spend my time, effort, and feelings with someone who will not be my life time partner. I may sound traditional, but the word ‘dating’ means a lot to me. For me, dating means you are willing to spend your time, money and feelings with someone because you already see them as part of your future, or in short, your partner in life. I don’t have boyfriend since birth and I’m really praying that my first boyfriend will be my last one. And I believe that using online dating apps will not help me to find the right one. Maybe it can help me to find new friends, but not the right person that the Lord wanted to give to me.

    I haven’t tried anything like this online dating app because I am not really interested in it. Besides I am not into dating with other people that I don’t know personally. It can be effective in some ways but there will always be things that we shouldn’t need to encounter. Yes it is in trend but I am not into following what is in trend. I like it more when I talk with someone I really know that talking to someone I don’t see personally.

  82. ACT – 186
    (1) I haven’t try online dating before but I knew how it works, it’s just that I’m not interested to look for a date online. If I’m looking for a life time partner I would rather wait, no matter how long it takes than to find someone online. I’m nothing against for people who found their soul mates online, I mean if online dating works for them then that’s great. I just don’t think that it will work for me. One reason is a lot of people fakes their profile to date someone, fake picture, fake information about themselves and sometimes, using other’s personal information, photos and identity. Second is I really wanted to have a date in person, the traditional kind of date. It really takes years to know someone, if someone is really serious in their love life like me, I would rather meet them face to face and know them personally.

  83. Honestly, I’ve used online dating apps/websites before such as omegle and tinder, but I don’t actually use it anymore. That time where I used it is because my friends told me to do so. They said that it was fun and you can meet a lot of people from other countries. I don’t like the idea at first, but I tried it anyway. When I tried omegle, wherein it is a website where you can talk to strangers and it doesn’t require you to make an account and you can disconnect immediately if you didn’t like the person. I’ve met a lot of guys from other countries and most of them are horny, but not all because there were nice guys too. I have a friend from Argentina where I met him on omegle two years ago, and up until now, we still talk to each other. I also used tinder because my friends told me to try it and just because I’m bored. It is an app where it requires you to make an account and set an icon so people can see what you look like. This is an app where you swipe right if you like the person then left if not, then you can chat with that person if you both liked each other. I’ve met one guy but we didn’t have a lot of conversation so I decided to uninstall it. I haven’t used both of these apps for such a long time because of my studies and it’s not even my first priority so why would I bother to use it again?

  84. For me I can’t really say that i tried online dating because i just use it because i want to know what is really happening in that site. I look for omegel that may friend use and we come up to just do it for fun or to know how it works but then, some in that site just only want to have sexual interaction so i don’t use it. So i don’t try it before because somehow i believe that dating is better in personal than in online because online can give us false information about someone or they are just using fake accounts and names to be able to date someone. And i don’t really know what kind of person are they because i don’t accept people that i don’t know so just have a small amount of friends in fb.

    So if I would really try to use it i think these are the reasons that it would work for me
    1. I can do things freely
    2. It could be my past time
    3. I just want to experience it.
    4. I can have a real guyfriend even if it is a dating app.
    5. I can have a chatmate that will last long
    6. I want to have more friends
    7. It can be my source of happiness
    8. To try to understand them
    9. I can show my true self
    10. It is not that really bad just know the limitations.

    I haven’t tried online dating or any dating apps. Because I am not good at talking to other people. I can’t even start a simple conversation to others. And I don’t have a guts to go out with other people knowing that I don’t know them personally. I don’t have time to do such thing as online dating and even if I have a time, I will still choose to play online games.

  87. Crizzalyn Cruz
    ACT183
    No, I haven’t tried any dating application or online dating since I believe that if you’re going to be in a relationship, you must know the person—attitude, background, etc. And when you date, you should know already the person by your mutual friends or relatives’ friends. Because in that way, you know that you’re safe and secure. Using a dating app, you can manipulate the photos there and your information you will put there. It’s not safe since you don’t know the person you will date there personally—if he/she is real or if her/his photos are real. In short, there is no assurance that if you date using an online dating, you can now have a right person to date with.

  88. Lately, there are many online dating applications that have been trending on the internet. I tried Online dating app before because of the reason of boredom. But I deleted it immediately because I find it awkward when you can see their profile but you can’t tell if he/she is real. Maybe for others they found their true love through internet but If you want to find someone whom you want to be in a relationship make sure that you’ll able to know them deeply. That is why I am not suggesting to use a dating app, yes maybe for just a couple of hours to talk to someone but you need to remember that if they find another person who will have the same interest, they’ll leave. They don’t last. They are just temporary. Just for a little amount of time to kill your boredom.

    (ACT184) 1. Have you tried online dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you try it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet?

    I never tried dating other people in the internet or online dating before but when I was in highschool, my friends were using Omegle in our classroom so out of curiosity, I tried using it too. There, it asked what my interests are and they will find a match that has the same interest with mine. So there I tried chatting with unknown strangers, at first it was kinda boring because the stranger would normally ask “ASL?” (Age, Sex, Location) of course I won’t tell the truth because I don’t know them at all. There are some kinds of people who are just looking for somebody willing to listen to their rants, looking for somebody to deeptalks with, looking for academic sources but there are also sex predators/maniacs that will try to seduce or ask for something malicious from you and that made me feel off and disgusted and so after that first try, I never bothered using it again.

  90. I haven’t tried online dating because I think it is such a waste of time meeting stranger people online. This is subjective, I know there are real couples who are married today who met through online dating. I am not just a fan of meeting other people on a cyber world because I am into an old fashioned way when it comes to meeting a person who I can welcome to my life and introduce to my family. Internet is very unsafe and a little by little it lessen my interest on it. Trusting to an online person is a big no to me. There will be definitely a fake information that will be sent or told to you. It’s like everything is so fake.

    I believe that there are many things I can do outside the online world and my man is not just waiting on an app with one click away because true love is a hard work and a real deal in this real world.

    I already tried to online date before. I used NearGroup, Omegle, i forgot the other because it was useless ??. The people I met in NearGroup was okay but sometimes people are rude. Omegle has different kinds of users, rude, flirt, horny but sometimes or rarely good people. I met a boy and he was good and genius. We exchanged information to each other and we continued chatting on facebook and we whatted for a long time until he confessed to me that he like me but I refused because I didn’t see him personally because that time I was staying in province and he lives in Batangas. And eventually we stopped talking and that was the end. After that I didn’t use any online dating app. And because I already have a boyfriend ?

    I haven’t really tried online dating before, and I think I will never use it as a tool or a platform for me to meet someone in my life. Before I say anything else, I would like to emphasize that I respect people doing that. They ain’t harming my life, so who am I to judge them? But I want them to be extra careful as they engage in this kind of dating for it is kinda risky.
    As I’ve mentioned, it is kinda risky engaging in an online dating and that is one of the reasons why I am not doing it. Also, I am a gullible person. I tend to quickly believe in everything that is said to me. Because of this, it will be difficult for me to distinguish if that person in an online environment is being honest to me. Moreover, my parents will not like it if they knew that I am in an online dating. I am certain that they are still for the traditional way of meeting someone for their daughters. They are really strict. Up to now, I don’t have any experience in dating. They want me to focus on my studies first and have a stable work before caring for these kind of things. Lastly, I would like to meet someone personally, starting by being friends, that’s my kind of ideal love story.
    Online dating is a great way to meet someone special, but it is not for everyone. One people may be lucky with it, one will be not. Therefore, do it knowing that there might be consequences.

    [10 reasons why it would work for me]
    1. I can express myself better.
    – I do not have that enough courage to say anything that comes into my mind. I tend to keep quiet and leave my thoughts unsaid, which is not a good thing because most of the time, I just would like to compliment people; their appearances, personality, and efforts in life, which I still can’t do up to now.
    2. It might work even with a busy schedule.
    – Most of us are busy nowadays because of school or work, and I am no exception to that. With online dating, I think it would work knowing that even if we are busy, we still have our cellphones 24/7 and can communicate with other people, virtually.
    3. I don’t know how to flirt.
    – If I will engage into an online dating, I think it will be okay since flirting in that kind of atmosphere will come, naturally.
    4. It is easy to ignore someone online if you don’t feel anything good to them.
    – I find it difficult to say ‘No.’ to someone, personally, or ignore them. But in an online environment, with proper structure of words, I think it will be easier to cut ties with someone that I do not feel good to.
    5. If it will not work with a Filipino guy, then it might work with someone outside the Philippines.
    – The chance of pairing up with someone is unlimited, even outside our country, so it might be good considering this way of dating someone.
    6. I am in control of everything.
    – I can do everything I want, as I please.
    7. I am a shy person outside our house but doing something online, I can be my cheerful self, as usual.
    – Being myself is not difficult in an online environment, and doing online dating might work for me as I become my real self.
    8. Matchmaking is done for me.
    – As I’ve said before, I haven’t had any experiences when it comes to dating, that’s why I can’t sense who is ‘the one’. With online dating, it is great to have some help from the computer-generated matchmaking and see if that person is okay.
    9. I can make a great first impression.
    – It will be less likely that I’ll be awkward in that platform since people can’t see my real-time reaction, so I think things will work better.
    10. I do not have a great socialising skills.
    – To have that other half in our life, socialising with other people is a must. Honestly, I am not great at that but with the help of technology, I believe I can do better than the usual.

  93. Princess Leah Banoy
    ACT 184
    For my 19 years of single existence in this whole new world, I never tried downloading, signing in, or even joining any possible dating applications we could ever have. Why? First of all, because I am not yet in that stage of my life of wanting to be in relationship and I still have a lot of responsibilities I need to prioritize. Secondly, because I am not looking for someone, and I am not even planning of doing so. I believe that through God’s ways, the perfect and dream relationship of mine will come on its own at the right time, right place and right moment through the right person. Another reason why is because I don’t trust men online. I don’t believe in their online personal background, pictures, personalities and motives. Nowadays, everything seems to be in control of a person. Through the use of modern technology, it is easy to pretend and be someone you are not just to be accepted, liked and loved. It is easy to make someone fall inlove with you through your pictures, delusive sweet words and online attitude, and if you are fragile and gullible enough to believe on it, you lose. Online dating is too flexible to the point that you no longer know what is true and not, what to believe and what to not mind. I still prefer knowing someone deeper through personal meetings, chats and bonding. The moments and experiences you could have together are far better than the flippant relationship you are trying to build online. I know that it is unlikely that all men in the online dating up are the same and are like what I am thinking they are, and with no prior experience of online dating, it is not right to judge and make some generalizations about them, but still, there’s nothing wrong of just being careful and protecting your heart from being broken by someone you just knew online. Trust is something that cannot be easily given away, it must be earned, and earning it takes time, a very long time.

  95. Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet there.

    Honestly, I have tried online dating before out of curiosity and boredom. I used Tinder because it is one of the most popular apps going around the internet. It is also easy to use where you’ll just upload photos of you, swipe left for people you don’t like and right for people you like and eventually you can start chatting there. I have talked to quite a lot of people and some are actually interesting to talk to. Some people use that app to find potential candidates for their boyfriend or girlfriend, some wanted to meet already after our first chat, some use it to look for people willing to have sex or be their “fubu”. As for me I tend to unmatch those types of people because I am really not after that and I just wanted someone to talk to and build friendship with. I know it may not be the best app to use but there is no harm in trying but I eventually stopped using the app because I found it boring and sketchy after trying it for a few months.

    I haven’t tried online dating. I only have ideas on how online dating works because of my friends. I am not interested to try it because I believe that this site is not the right platform to find someone and have a relationship to other people that I only knew by their display picture and some good data about them which can be true or fake only to impress others. And also I think that it is not the right stuff for me to waste my spare time.

  97. I haven’t tried to use online dating app. First, I don’t want to waste my time to talk nonsense with a stranger. Second, we shouldn’t talk to strangers, as what our parents told us since we were kids. Third, I’m not interested. Fourth, we don’t need to follow what’s on trend, especially if it is not that beneficial. And lastly, if you want to date someone, you should meet face to face, and get to know each other personally to earn trust. It is so easy to type and tell lies, don’t let ourselves become a victim of it. – ACT183

  98. Honestly, I haven’t tried any online dating sites or applications. I am not comfortable on the idea of talking on someone whom I do not really know personally. First of all, I am not that friendly or sociable person who can talk to anybody. Some people may call me as “snob” because I ignore those people who are calling me if I do not know them. I am not answering those chats and messages from people I am not familiarize with. Second, I am a hopeless romantic person. I believe in the idea of destiny and I want to feel the “love” on first hand basis. I want to feel the effort personally and those butterflies in my stomach. Also, I can sense and feel if that person is really sincere with his feelings on me rather than saying it only on chats. I won’t settle for an instant relationship because of technology. As they say, “True love is worth the wait”. Another reason is because of the opinions of my friends about those online sites. They have said that most people that use those sites are usually sexually driven and full of lust. Those people only want to meet people whom they can flirt with. Some of them use fake accounts so it is reallyhard to trust people whom you will meet there.

    During my shs days I tried using Neargroup out of my curiosity, ofcourse because of the influence of my friends too and it was also trend that time. It is a sites where your facebook account should be connected because it’ll do in the messenger but it’s up to you if you want to put your real picture and some information ’cause it can edit. Based of what I’ve experience, some people there are okay to talked with and few of them are not. These few people I’ve mentioned are the one’s who’s looking only for hook ups, after I’ve encounter those few people, I’ll stop using. Then last december during our christmas vacation, I also tried Tinder I knew this app because of my friend, this is an online dating app where you can see different people from different schools. I enjoyed using it, I enjoyed talking to strangers because some of them are funny, witty and has a sense to talked with. Unfortunately, there are some people whose looking for one night stand and friends with benefits, well, we can’t control it because it’s natural in online dating sites that’s why I’ll stop it since 3rd term in school year started. Just because I am bored and want to have a conversation with a random people I tend to used those sites or application. But I won’t let them to see me so I refuse to meet them up. Its okay to chat with other people as long as we know our limitations.

  100. A. (The Basics of Online Dating-1st question)
    Today, some of the people tend to use online to date or to meet someone. Some of the people in a society are using applications to find a man or women they are wanting to. In this kind of situation, this may happen because they are trying to look for a partner wherein they can’t find or meet in person. People who used online dating has their advantages and disadvantages. They can have their advantage if they are lucky to meet the right one thru this. Example is the vlogger I am watching, she met her husband thru this online dating and now they are living happily. Also online dating can have its disadvantage in terms of the people not properly using it. Some can be a victim because of the inappropriate act they do. People wants to use online dating to meet the person they are dreaming or the person they are looking for to be in a relationship. They must use it in a good way and not to fool or give a fake personality because in today’s generation, social media or online application is one of the top thing people are using now and we can’t say who can be the victim.

    B. (Ten reasons online dating doesn’t work for me-1st question)
    I never tried to use online dating and also not in my mind to try it. I am person who can’t easily trust a person. Even in my personal account like in facebook, instagram, twitter etc., I don’t easily add and accept a friend or follow request. I used to private my accounts because I don’t want that other people I don’t know will follow me and used to see what I post or to see what are the content of my social media accounts. There are times that I used to public my accounts but I easily tend to back it private again. Also, I never tried it because my mindset about online dating is that, you will encounter so many people and as a woman I am not that typical girl who is comfortable to talk with a man that I don’t know. There is also an afraid feeling that if I tried to use it maybe there is such a bad thing may happen. That’s why, my characteristic that I don’t easily trust other people is the reason why I never tried to use online dating because in my legal age now, I never think to try that kind of situation because of my trust issue and honestly, I can’t see myself that I will try it.

    -ACT185

  101. To be honest, I have never imagined myself to make use of online dating apps not because of how other people may look into it, but because I know for a fact that it won’t work for me. I am that kind of person who is so focused about the small details and I do always have this mindset of having second thoughts in everything that I do, so for me its best not to depend virtually ’cause it will really take a life time for me to trust people. In a clearer view, I am really not a fan of online dating apps because I find personal connection more intimate and meaningful to an individual. It really looks like that having the guts to let the online app speak for your heart decreases the intensity of how much you can give to a person than just showing or saying it personally. But truthfully, I admire those who take chances to find the love of their life through internet, how I wish it’ll work for me.

    ACT 183

  102. ACT 185

    I tried online dating before, I used Nearme and the people there dont know how does it works. People dont know what to react and what to do and they just spill nonsense. They told me that they only used the platform because they want to talk to another person or just really want to go in the trend. Online dating is not a joke, there will be many consequences especially when they meet up. So used your intellectual mind and always be sure that you are doing the right thing

  103. ACT 186
    I have tried online dating before, I used omegle. I tried it out of curiosity because all of my friends are making a fuss about how ignorant I’am when it comes in trends and online dating. Hence, I browse and try omegle. At first, I’m scared because I’m afraid of getting a sermon by my mother, she always brag about that as a millennial we must learn not only to socialize and date online, but we must also learn to communicate face to face. Based on my experience, it is quite fun and exciting when I use the online for dating because I got to meet different people with different intention. I hope that I don’t cross path my sisters in this online dating apps. Sometimes I used when I need someone to talk about my problwms in life and get and advice. It is quite suprising because you can set up a target person to date with or to talk with. I have encountered different people expressing their spritual, sexual, emotional, material, and political side of their lives. It is funny because you don’t know that your date might be your friend, siblings, or your classmates. We can encourage peopld to use it to engage in commumication but we must limit ourselves in using it because also practice communicating face to face and bond to your girlfriend/boyfriend physically. Accoridnga to psalm 27:14, wait for the LORD; be strong and let your heart take courage; waut for the LORD!

    Jan Patricia Lynn B. Usita

    Honestly, I never tried an online dating app. Although it is very popular at my age and in this generation, I can’t found myself using those apps. I’m not actually against on it because I now that every person has their own reason why they look for someone to talk to but honestly, I am afraid of being attached from the person that I found on the dating app because my mindset was that, everything in there was all virtual. The person I am talking to is really different from the real world. I’m afraid that I got the wrong person or I also don’t want the time to come wherein I’m also putting sugar coat on everything I said just to have attract someone. I don’t know why I had this feeling but I am also too scared for myself to get addicted to the virtual world wherein, maybe the time could probably come to me when I actually forget and hate the real world. And I don’t want it to happen.

    USITA, JAN PATRICIA LYNN B. ACT182

  107. Bryan Jade Bautista ACT 182Most people attend social events full pf some repressed hope that maybe, just maybe, they’ll spot the someone across the crowded room and everything will fall into place. But as rational experienced people. Most of us understand that it’s more than likely no such thing will occur
    Some with dating site although the intention is somewhat more overt,there’s a tiny chance that you’ll find someone there probably not but it’s a possibility
    Taking to people online doesn’t guarantee that you’re going to meet the right person just as chatting with random stranger in person doesn’t. However it does open up opportunities and if that’s right person is out there, if that right person is going to come into your life. They will. If there is such a thing as fate, you’re gonna meet that person no matter what we do but in my case i thing dating site is not really for me

  108. Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet there.
    No, I haven’t tried any online dating app because I find it informal. But I am not saying that it is a bad thing, its just that not everybody is good of heart or have the best intentions, there are scary people out there and there are plenty of guys on there simply looking for sex.

  109. ACT 186- VERGARA, LEILANIE

    Question: Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and Why? And What are the usual kinds of people you meet there?

    There are really pros and cons in using apps to be in an online date and Yes, I have tried it but realized, it was all temporary. Temporary feelings and there was no genuity of happiness. At first, I get really excited as I chat with other people, or should I say, chat with the boys. I would never want want to be hypocrite for telling I never got attracted to the persons whom I am talking to online. Ofcourse, I was attracted not to the person, but to the new feeling. It is not easy to resist someone who seems to be appreciated you by sending you sweet messages and putting some concerns on you as if you are together for real. I get to relate to what the author is trying to share with us. Her failed supposed ‘love story’ that ends up having regrets on putting a lot of time and also money (as other dating apps would require real money for an exclusive membership). All because she have gone to into her mind and realize, meeting ‘The One’ is a rare chance, and if you’re not lucky enough, then you should stop by now. True, there are people who met by chance in an online dating and had their happily ever after but for I know, majority have failed to have a strong realtionship that was built online. They just broke, and that’s the end of their breathtaking love story. How sad it is.

    One of the platforms I used back then was the Omegle. Omegle is an online dating app that lets you put your interest in a person. For example, you want to chat somebody who likes chicken or who study in the university you have ever dreamt of, omegle will let the people connect based on their chosen interest. But there is no guarantee that the interest they have put are true. People who talk there are totally strangers as the site does not require the users to have photo and for me, if the users have no guts to meet the person they are talking to online, then they must try omegle as it has the function to easily disconnect the person especially if the person has a brisque personality or has an inappropriate behavior but people should know, they should treat online people as the ones who are very harmful rather than giving their full trusts or even small trust.

    It is really fast to meet new people in the omegle site, and yet those people were as easy as they go. All because you have the choice to disconnect. I have met a lot of different persons. One who is funny, with sense of humor. Others are flirty and will call you in different flattering (or is it? Haha) endearments and others have dirty mouth. Like they talk as if they dont have filter in their mouths. Some of them are into hookups and when I get to connect with them, I usually turn them down. Like hello, for a girl who was born as a conservative one, I would never really like to talk to a guy who seems to have problems inside his pants. Some of them are kind, so was I too judgemental? Ofcourse, as a human person, you get to be flattered by someone who also flatter you as he knew you for a long time. And Some of the guys I talked were like a friendly one or brother type. But yeah, just like the author, you cant meet someone who is real there not until you meet and decide to make it official. As long as, you two would never have the chance to meet, then one must end it. Just like in real life, we often to say ‘Oh he’s/she’s the real one’, but the truth is, finding real one would not make you real but waiting is the key. Online dating can be both devastating and a blessing especially to those who are hopeless romantics but people should be always careful in meeting different person s online.

  110. Have you tried Online Dating before? What platform and why? If you not, why haven’t you tried it before? And what are the usual kinds of people you meet there?

    Honestly, I never tried online dating before. I think that it is a waste of time. I am not that desperate to date someone. I really am not that kind of girl that like online dating or anything. I am just scared of someone inside that online dating app. It is just that I think they are only after the appearance, sex and something else. I know my limits and I know that safety should comes first before anything else. I have my friends whom I can date with, so no worries.

  111. I’ve never tried online dating, and I’m not interested in it. I have never tried it before, and will never be, because I want to fall in love in a very old school way. Like, walking in the aisle bumping into each other, try the slow-motion, or accidentally crossed each others’ eyes, I love something that is natural and pure, not sugarcoated by filters, emojis, Gifs, I would like to fall in love with a guy in this real world, not to a guy who is hiding the real him with a virtual self to a virtual world. In this techy-world, I would rather like to be left behind than be with someone virtually.

  112. Jenny Sylvia Eustaquio
    Jenny Sylvia Eustaquio

    Honestly I haven’t tried to use any online dating apps even before because first of all I was in a relationship back then. Second, back when I was still single dating apps where not that known. And third now that I am no longer in a relationship I find people in dating apps not genuine or not partner material. Because for me I don’t engage myself in a relationship that I don’t picture myself with him in the future. So I don’t have any reason to try online dating apps. For me the kinds of person that I will encounter in such apps are those who are not into serious relationships. The ones who just want to have sex or those who find people that will agree to be friends with benefits. There may be a few who seeks for a serious partner but I doubt it.

  113. No, i dont try any online dating apps before.
    Because I dont have that confidence showing my self to be liked or not, I am not that person who wants to get more likes to get some new friends on dating sites. Also, i know that dating apps are safe but not the people in there, many get fooled by a stranger, maybe they get hurt from person from dating sites. These are my factors why i dont try any online dating apps.

    And if i would try it, maybe these are my 10 reasons why it would work for me:
    1) friendly
    2) Talkative
    3) Know my limits
    4) Good Friend
    5) Listener
    6) Interperson
    7) Kind
    8) Have a good taste in music
    9) Musician
    10) God-Fearing

  114. Technology is fast growing and is now creating ways on how people can interact easily and conveniently, one of its product is online dating. Online dating creates a medium wherein people with same interest can interact with each other through internet. It is a match game as they say and using it can help a seeker to find the perfect or ideal guy or girl for him/her.
    Personally, i found online dating very interesting cause you can meet a lot of people with different wants and desires. I am using a lot of dating platforms for the last years but what i like the most is tinder (the “SWIPE LEFT, SWIPE RIGHT” application). Browsing on that app helps me to find a perfect guy that fits my interest with a single swipe right. But users must be careful in swiping right because in months that i am using the said online dating platform, I observed that there are three (3) type of person using it namely:
    * THE LOVE SEEKER
    * THE LUST SEEKER
    * BORED PERSON
    And there will come a time that you fall on the wrong person.

    10 Reasons Why Online Dating Work in Me
    1. Convenience
    2. So much options to choose from
    3. I can filter who I want to see
    4. Interaction is fast
    5. Based on my interest
    6. I can meet many person
    7. Choosing instead of Chasing
    8. Works much better and it is the quickest way to meet a great guy
    9. Helps me get out of boredom
    10. More opportunity to connect with people

  115. ACT 181

    As a curious person, I’ve already tried using Omegle which is an online dating site (I guess?). Wayback when I was in my 10th grade, me and my friends tried to use Omegle just to explore what really is it and why people are fond of it that time. I realized that many people are using it because it gives them the freedom to say what they want to say because it doesn’t require any profile. Everybody there is a stranger and it’s for you to found out who’s who. Just type what interests you wanted to look for and it will give you a person with the same interests as you. As I tried to talk to few people, I also realized that the “hype” of using Omegle was about sexual interest. They easily talk about it directly because you can’t identify who they was. That’s why I hate online dating sites or apps today because it doesn’t justify the true essence of dating.

    Here are 10 reasons why it would work for me:
    1. I get to control and pick who I can talk to.
    2. I get to check on their social media accounts before we meet. 
    3. I can easily step out of my comfort zones without awkwardness.
    4. Get matched based on our interests.
    5. I’ll get to know someone initially based from his personality. 
    6. Introverts like me hates personally getting to know each other stage. With just online sites or apps, we can talk to them easily without feeling the awkwardness.
    7. I can think first what I wanted to say.
    8. It’s convenient.
    9. I can ask questions and read between the lines before the first meet.
    10. I can protect myself from wrong persons and have a lot of time ro verify them first.

  116. RUSSELL B. DE GUZMAN
    ACT 181

    As an active social media user and in my so many years of using it as my way to communicate, entertain and spread awareness I haven’t tried to use any dating applications. Most of my friends are encouraging me to try it for me to find friends or perhaps a partner but I always tell them that I didn’t see any worth using any dating app as my way to have a partner.

    Perhaps when it comes to courtship my traditional me talks and well I find it more romantic and more classic. I just want to remind everyone that dating should be a face to face encounter to avoid harm and danger. Not because we are living in the digital era, we shouldn’t also let ourselves be invaded and be fooled by these platforms.

  117. Apple Mae Baldemoro
    Apple Mae Baldemoro

    ACT-185

    Honestly, I never tried online dating ever since. For me it was better if the person you’re dating is near to you not because you can be with him/her always but because you will easily determin his/her true intentions to you, and you can easily know his/her true characters or behaviour.

    Online dating is not bad for me but I think it would be better if you really know the person whom you’d with be. The tremendous event that happens todays somehow can be related in being with person whom you don’t really know. Because sometime the person that may kill you Physically, Mentally or Emotionally is the person that you’d expected that will never do that things to you.

  118. I haven’t tried online dating or haven’t thought of using it even once. Probably because I’m not into romantic relationship or maybe because I don’t want to be desperate and try to find the right person myself. Because I believe that I’m too young to be in a relationship and I know that God has the perfect timing for everything and I always enjoy being single and I love my own company.

    I think that online dating would never work for me because:

    1. I don’t talk to strangers
    2. I’m awkward
    3. I’m lazy to reply
    4. I prefer sleeping
    5. I’m not into relationship
    6. I’m easily annoyed when someone disturb me from watching anime
    7. I don’t like anyone to constantly messaging me
    8. Toxic
    9. I prefer people from the real world
    10. I didn’t know if they’re real

  119. • Why do you think people try online dating? (10pts)
    I think people use the online dating app because of peer pressure or what kind of pressure. They desperately want to have a partner, but we know that the possibility to find the right person for you in online dating app is very small. And there are people who use the app for flirting purposes, we know many people who wants to flirt every time urghh I remember so many people. And of course many people use the app to find a sex partner, we know that it is very dangerous because today we know that the number of the people having HIV or AIDS is growing and having sexual intercourse that you don’t know is very dangerous, you don’t know if that person have the virus or disease that is hazardous for your health.

  120. Since, online dating is inarguably more easier and fun to use to find a mate there is still no guarantee that online dating would be possible than traditional dating. I’ve tried using it with my friend recently not to intentionally look for someone to flirt or what but to exactly experience how it would work. To be honest, I’ve heard ‘Omegle’ so many times since when I was in grade 9 but haven’t tried it before until I met my friend this time in college who uses it just for fun. It doesn’t work for me because it isn’t practical to find someone in a wide pool of stranger people. So basically, the choices increased geographically. Online dating doesn’t appeal me and I don’t think that all people who uses it is serious. As what I observed today those who uses it today are just for finding a fling and not someone to love. I have this reason that you will only know your half if you meet and tried to know them personally.

  121. In today’s generation of technologically advanced and technologically attached, online dating is really a common thing that even flash out advertisements whenever we scroll through our social media sites. Being honest, I really tried having tinder account and bumble where we swipe right if we like to talk with people by just seeing their photos and even their interests while swipe left if we dont. Actually I had been through these dating apps because of “curiosity” because I am the only one left in my squad no idea with what to do in this kind of world. When I was chatting other people, I realized this ten reasons why I am not into this kind of world:

    1. Fake profiles
    2. Trust
    3. Soulmate not available online
    4. True meaning of love has abandoned
    5. We cant able to really know people
    6. Some are just making good profile for his good
    7. Wrong judgment
    8. Time consuming
    9. Some are just for “romance”
    10. Real gentleman are in the real world

    It takes time for love and should find the right one for it. Trust, time and effort are its component and earning trusts arent that easy.

  122. Justin James Siazon
    Justin James Siazon

    I’ve tried to flirt in online but not online dating. You can’t date someone in online because of her/his pictures. It’s irrelevant for me to do that because it’s completely inappropriate messages from completely inappropriate person. For others, it is convenient for them to do that because we are in the digital world. But i don’t really know the concept of online dating – it’s much more prettier if you know a person in personal then you became friends and you can proceed to online chatting or online dating for much more connection. But if it’s stranger then the both of you are going to online dating, it’s weird; i called it “the lust of the eyes”, it’s not love. I will give you 10 reasons why it wouldn’t work for you:
    1. Lack of connection
    2. It’s only for short term
    3. It’s not love
    4. You don’t know his/her personality
    5. Pathetic
    6. Inappropriate
    7. Worst thing can happen
    8. Waste of time
    9. Not a good thing
    10. App to app, it’s not face-to-face

  123. I actually have not tried online dating. I have no idea on what to say if ever I made an account on sites like tinder. Fake news, oppurtunists, and impostors are all over the internet nowadays that is why I’m trying to be cautious and do not want to try online dating since chances are you would really be talking to complete stranger. Perhaps, I have trust issues. Nowadays, If you don’t play it wise on the internet and you don’t read between the line, you will really get fooled and I do not want to risk anything.

    Plus, I would really much prefer to date in person so that I can check if the guy is sincere or not, and that is going to be hard if you only talk through social media. If someone would just be contented by just flirting online I do not think he/she is going to be worth it. Most people that we will meet online are people who are lonely. They tend to find companions through online dating apps or social media because it is convenient. These people that we get to meet online and did not pursue trying to date in real life are temporary people in our lives. That is why it is just plain too hard for me to get attached to someone who just talk to me online. Once the loneliness fades they virtual presence would no longer be found as well.

  124. Mico Pederio- ACT 181

    No, i haven’t tried online dating applications. First of all, I have nothing against with the users. It is just my own stand, and choice not to use it. The reason is that I like it more when I get to know the person intimately, like dates are still acceptable even in the oldest way possible. You take her out on a date, eat somewhere, laugh and enjoy the moment. It is better that you know who the person is, based on how your foundation was formed together. To be honest, it would be very hard to talk to people I just met, honestly. Personally, I want to date someone whom I have a background to. But I’m not saying that dating someone you met online is wrong, you just have to work on it really well so that you guys will know each others’ trait.

  125. Rachelle Anne M. Villacorte
    Rachelle Anne M. Villacorte

    In this modern world, everything seems possible through social media. People are so engross with social media that even when looking for a partner,they use different applications. We can easily find something in just a few clicks.

    I think there are a lot of reason why people try online dating, one of it is out of curiousity. We all know that humans are so curious as to how this world works. I think another reason was because they want to know theirselves more. Through online dating app, they can easily share their stories and be vulnerable because they know they do not know each other well. Another reason is because of boredom, trying this application give them a little happiness because they learn a different perspective from different person and tend to understand people and life more. But the main reason why people try online dating is they were trying to find a partner and be happy. Most often, people who try this wants to experience how does it feels like to be loved by someone and someone cares for you aside from your family and friends.

    ACT181

  126. Honestly, I haven’t tried any online dating sites or applications. I am not comfortable on the idea of talking on someone whom I do not really know personally. I am afraid of being attached from the person that I found on the dating app because my mindset was that, everything in there was all virtual. The person I am talking to is really different from the real world.

  127. I already tried dating app site. And to be honest i meet a lot of people or random people. All of them are difference, they are not the same like what i thought that boys had a the same attitude. Theres a gentle man, naughty, thoughful, and etc that i’ve never expect that they still exist.
    1 time consuming
    2 long distance relationship
    3 misunderstanding
    4 you will never expect yourself that you will be in that kind of positio
    5 infatuation
    6 lust
    7 trust
    8 short time period doesnt work
    9 fake profile
    10 online fever

  128. Palermo, Ma. Bernadette M.
    ACT 185

    We all have own perspectives in terms of online datin apps. Just to be real, I haven’t tried online dating before. I don’t know how to start a conversation to someone; I feel so awkward whenever I am talking to a stranger. And also, maybe it’s because I’m not on the hunt for a relationship again. Three years ago, I was left hanging by the guy that I really love. The pain that I’ve experienced made me forget how to feel inlove again. Also, I believe that those people who are unto online dating are those people who are not taking the relationship seriously.

    For me, dating apps aren’t the only option. All that time you’re sitting at home swiping left and right could be spent out meeting new people at coffee shops or bookstores or wherever you like to hang out.

  129. For me, online dating is unreliable and unsafe that’s why I haven’t tried it before. Don’t fight with me on not liking online dating, these are just my views about dating sites. Meanwhile in the online world, everyone can be who they want to be. It only gets tricky when you meet them in the real world. Online dating is efficient.
