When you connect with a person, you would always have expectations. It is fairly normal for a person to have the yearning feeling of finally meeting the person of his/her dreams. In online dating, you can never get the real intentions of a person. Since interactions are not personal, you will have a different mental picture of the person you met online in your head. When some try to meet their online buddy in person, they donít exceed their expectations most of the time. It becomes a disappointing experience because the interaction online and in person becomes different.
Online dating has advantages and disadvantages. Since online dating is a common practice nowadays, it is always important to always question yourself if you would be making the right decision of taking a risk when it comes to online dating.

Hi Christie, Yes I would agree with you there that unrealistic expectations are to blame. I do wonder if that is due to how online dating works (so many options and the person in front of you is a stranger so unless there’s magic on the first date there’s no second date). Or if it is due to how a lot of us single people past 30 are (we’re the ones doing OLD), and I stress that I am including myself in this.
