Negative effects of internet dating
Great for boredom, terrible for day-to-day productivity.
With online dating, everything seems to move at warp speed.
It may seem like the two of you are on the path to love, but real intimacy takes tons of time and trust to build, so be cautious of falling for someone too quickly (as I have done on countless occasions).
The unfortunate (and unnecessary) stigma surrounding STIs mixed with the fast and often casual nature of online dating is not a good combination.
But for all its benefits, there are also a lot of bad things about online dating.
Compared to the relatively snail-like pace of meeting someone IRL, getting to know them, becoming friends, and then maybe going on a date, the way things work online is crazy-fast.
