    It seems to use it what it was made for. Information

    It's fine for gaming, online communities, social media, forums like this, etc. There's a time and place and reason. Romance? No. Too fraught with excess emotional involvement and the possibility of all sorts of predators from scammers to catfish to very sick people, trolls, cyberbullies etc.. No for "romance". And if that's what daddygog is trying to get at here then they'll just close this thread.

    Ha ha...with whom? I'm married.

    I think it's a legit question.

    But I have learnt all these same lessons and I also know of many many people who suffer from social anxiety and don't find it as easy to meet people in person and jump to dating like that.

    I agree with many of your points Wiseman, however I think there is more to online dating, for some, then to just assume they are shut ins and weirdos.
    But you do have many valid points.

    I think I found the answer. But being isolated the internet is the only way to stay in touch with friends.

    Again daggy, I understand. Don't let people make you feel bad for it. Not all of us have the luxury of going out, meeting people and having an easy time with it.

    There's no shame in it or any reason to feel bad.

    The only point I was making, was that at some point, if you do fancy a romance, best to meet them in person first. Then you'll know for certain what you're dealing with.
    It is very difficult to tell online.

    What does that mean? Don't you work or go to school? How do you support yourself? If you mean voluntarily hiding behind a screen and catfishing people yourself then that's not good either.

    I'm feeling incredibly dense today but I still don't know what you mean.

    How old are you OP?
