Concepts of online dating
Makes sense; it's easier to endure rejection from afar rather than have someone laugh directly in your face.FYI: my female clients claim that it‘s a must for a woman to have a terrific picture to get online attention but it's not as important for a man to have one.This makes sense in part, because men tend to be more visual.But I do have a friend who refuses to post a picture for professional reasons and he rarely gets any reponses.Relationships should be less predictable and worth waiting for.We have too much control over a romantic process and in turn, we're killing the romance.Neverthless, most people tend to date someone within a few miles of their home.One woman told me that she loves dating a guy who lives close by because she can see him almost any time she wants without a "big production." Another convenience of online dating is that you don't have to leave your house to get a date; kinda like Netflix® don't ya think?
In the bar scene it's all about your looks; you don't have the luxury of putting your best picture out there because—you're out there—in the flesh.
So the "bar scene" is the only alternative to online dating you can think of?
