The Pros & Cons of Online Dating

    Pro: You Know What You're Getting

    • Online daters upload their photos so each member can initiate contact to those they deem desirable.

    Con: You Don't Always Know What You're Getting

    • In an effort to look their best, some daters stretch the truth and use outdated photos to portray themselves in the best light.

    Pro: The Options Are Almost Endless

    • Because online sites have thousands of members, users have a vast variety of users to choose from. Daters can contact many more online users than people they could meet in a bar.

    Con: Security Concern

    • These are strangers after all, not acquaintances you made through friends, work or family, so you never know what you're getting yourself into.

    Pro: Inexpensive

    • Some dating websites are free, while others charge a nominal monthly fee. Compared with going to bars and clubs, it is a real bargain.

    Con: Financial Scams and the Potential For Abuse

    • Most dating websites warn users not to send money to anyone who requests it, a clear sign scam artists have figured out ways to exploit online dating.
