Theres no way there can be a strong bond of trust in these types of relationships until the initial face to face meeting because so many people lie about their life off of the internet.
Joe Schwartz believes that people cannot trust each other in a relationship until time has proved that person reliable (Schwartz 124).
According to Joe Schwartz there are five different types of people that register for dating services: the seeker, nester, hormone, butterfly, and dabbler.
The dabbler is just filled with curiosity and does not have any real interest in dating, whereas the nester is primarily interested in finding their soul mate and settling down.
The reason that so many people are hesitant to put their complete trust into an online relationship is because numerous people exaggerate or lie about who they are: I would say I feel more like myself. Even if the changes are small, such as acting more outgoing, theyre still not completely honest.
People tend to maintain online relationships longer because theres no evident harm.
Because of this large amounts of people feel led on and eventually lose faith in online dating.
Considering the same multitude of purposes exist in the online realm of dating as well as the real world shows that there are just as many misunderstandings and the same amount of hurt feelings.
Lynn Schofield Clarks research with teens showed that online relationships provoke an excessive amount of hurt feelings because different intentions are not voiced as quickly as they are in real world relationships.
