Challenges of finding your soulmate through online dating sites
Dating sites are certainly helpful to many when it comes to finding love and happy relationships. However, finding a soulmate online comes with its own challenges as with anything that has merits.
A man reported that he dated someone over the phone for a year. But when it was time to meet her, she suddenly disappeared and he never heard from her again.
It is not easy to be interacting with a virtual person or someone you have never met in person. Most times, the personality displayed online by your chat mate might be different from his/her actual personality.
To help you prepare ahead of time when looking for a soulmate online, here are the main challenges you are likely going to encounter:
With online dating, there is every possibility that you’re going to find someone who does not live anywhere close to you. At first, it might not be a serious issue for you both, but as the dating and getting to know progresses; you will definitely find it a big problem relocating and leaving your career to go meet up with your soulmate. Just as you know, long-distance relationships pose a threat to many lovers.
Communication Problems and Misleading Attraction
One can never compare a face-to-face interaction with interactions on the computer and cell phone devices. Some good features of attraction such as touches will be lost, thereby creating an artificial and unemotional feeling in you.
You might find it hard to decipher the kind of attraction you are having with your online date. In most cases, such feelings are always misleading because you might not feel same way if you finally meet the person physically.
Presenting less information about self online
Your inability to tell if the person you are talking with is really who he/she claims to be is one of the greatest challenges you will face when searching online for a soulmate.
Yes! Pictures can say a lot about a person but can equally be setting high expectations in your imaginations that might not be true about same person. In online dating sites, many are into the habit of uploading pictures that are not theirs, for instance; a 45 years old man with grey and bald hair can pose as 25 years old man with a handsome picture on display. This is the reason you always need to bring your guard down until you are quite sure you are talking to the person you think you are. The less information on display about your would be soulmate can make you feel skeptical and afraid, leaving you with the “would this work” query in mind. It can really be difficult to decide.
Perhaps the best advice is to be completely honest when describing yourself in your profile as a member of a dating site, but do not limit yourself to online dating alone. Stay active and positive in the community and continue to do your normal day-to-day activities. One way or another, your perfect soulmate will find you.
