Dating services have always been around, but dating online is a way for adults to meet anonymously, at home.
There is a lot of good to virtual dating. Anyone that has sent an email and added a little wink is flirting online and essentially virtual dating. Dating online can help shy people overcome inhibitions and ‘practice' dating without the fear of humiliation in person. Dating online is cost effective because you aren't paying for dinner and a movie. It's quick and on to the next if the ‘date' didn't work out.
Watch out for the dark side of dating online. Cyber stalking, multiple identities or virtual affairs are also part of this new trend. Virtual dating in the 21st century is a trend that isn't going anywhere so make sure you are smart and safe before chatting or dating online.
