Myths Busted Author Name:Alina Adler There are a lot of fallacies and stereotypes that have sprouted around online dating. Many regard dating online as something solely for nerds and geeks and that it is also a last ditch effort for the lonely and the desperate. In this article I will try to assess some such fallacies and prove how wrong they are. It is high time you came to know about the truth. Fallacy 1 – “Online dating is not safe at all; there are stories to prove it.” The stories, which go around propagating that online dating is not safe, are the ones that are just as likely to occur in any bar or disco—they are also quite rare. The stories receive exposure because the press likes to play around with them. Paid premium dating sites, like Fredrikstad dating sites, work hard to ensure the safety of the members and since these are paid sites the chances of you meeting a prankster are nonexistent. Fallacy 2 – “Online dating is for the nerds.” This is entirely false. If you visit any reputed dating site you will find the members to be well educated, with a career, a good income and an active social life. They are just there for a serious relationship. Fallacy 3 – “One has to be damned good with computers.” Everybody at least knows how to click and type and send an email, right? That is all you will ever need to get started. Reputed dating sites offer guidance to newbies. Fallacy 3 – “Online dating is for the desperate.” Another misconception as the members, of any Sarpsborg dating site, are well qualified and earn sizeable salaries. They are just good and honest people looking for a serious relationship. Fallacy 4 – “Never talk to strangers.” This does not hold true for online dating sites. It is not safe to talk to strangers in the real world maybe, but in online dating it is quite safe because divulging your personal information is completely at your discretion. Fallacy 5 – “Online dating is time consuming.” This may be true for conventional dating, but not so for online dating. This is the only form of dating which allows you to get connected whenever you wish—be it 7 in the morning or 11.30 at night! So stop thinking and get going!
