One of my sons has used on-line dating sites quite a bit. His problem is that he's an intelligent, polite, respectful feminist--hey, he's MY son! So women are always very excited to meet him, since so few men on the sites will admit to being feminists. But he's been with his current GF for over 2 years now, and by all accounts, they're very happy with their relationship. I think she's good for him, and vice-versa.
My daughter and a sister-in-law have both had other experiences with on-line dating. Many men are just looking for a hook-up. That's fine, if that's all you want also. But if you're a woman hoping to find a best-friend who can evolve into more, then on-line dating seems to be more problematic. It's hard to judge "vibes" from a picture on-line, or even from on-line communications. It's a limited media. And with the pandemic continuing to affect our daily lives, what we'd hoped back in March would only last a few months, is now turning out to be a long-term disaster to endure. Most dating has been put on hold--indefinitely.
Now that I think about it, on-line dating is something that I should probably write a romance about. Hmm...got to do some thinking on this one. Maybe I'll have a dream about it, if I think about it enough.
