How do you know when online chemistry is real?
My pal was very excited about this guy from Netherlands coming to visit her. They had been dating online for about 6 months. Nothing could dampen her mood that day because she was sure he was the one… the chemistry was way up the top and all that was left was a meeting to seal the whole deal… up until she finally met him!
See, this guy hadn’t lied about who he was or about his age... neither had he uploaded a picture of a younger, hotter version of himself. In fact he looked better in person than he did in his pictures. But after their first dinner date, she had already made up her mind... she was gonna run! All the plans they had of showing the guy around the state went down the drain. She never saw him again… never picked his calls again... never even bothered to go see him off while he was leaving (at least for the effort he had put).
What went wrong? “No Sparks!” she told me. Poor dude. He made the decision to come and take a closer look at this hot chick he was already falling in love with in the hopes that their relationship would move forward; only to scare the chick away. Could online chemistry really be totally different from what happens offline? No sparks whatsoever?
Your perfect partner could be online right now...
What are you looking for?
I wonder what happened to that guy… how he felt when this girl he flew miles for just went AWOL on him. I wonder if he still believes in online dating. I wonder if he still has an active dating profile or this discouraged him completely. Makes me wonder whether online dating cultivate a false sense of attraction – just some virtual chemistry? How do you know that the online chemistry you have with someone, is something you can count on… something worth traveling miles and miles for a closer look?
