"Facebook is emerging as the world's largest dating site," says Julie Spira, online dating expert. It's called social dating and it's here to stay." Meeting on Facebook and social dating tips Spira says: "From typing in their name in a search, to looking up former college sweethearts, and chatting with friends-of-friends while at an airport, singles are meeting on Facebook." But despite the ease of connections, Spria advocates caution.
"Start off by listing your relationship status as 'Single'on your profile. Before you start friending potential mates on Facebook, start by checking their relationship status.
My last relationship (in my early 20s) left me insecure and afraid of getting close to another man. I decided to spend my time earning my graduate degree, finding a job, and getting all my ducks in a row.I essentially built walls to protect myself from another heartbreak.Last fall I decided that it's OK for me to move on and try to find someone to love again. I have tried a couple of different sites and even casually dated someone for a couple of months before he told me he basically wasn't that into me.So girls and guys must have drastically different experiences with online dating.
The girls post a profile and get bombarded with messages from guys, guys scan profiles and message the girls.
In the past couple of weeks I've taken a break from online dating since it was getting a bit too frustrating and I was questioning my self-worth and felt I was going down a rabbit hole of depression.
