Watching the movie really helped me clearly see the negative affects that SNSs can have on our relationships.
One of the advantages of dating online is for people that are shy or nervous about meeting in person, you can take some time online to get to know one another first.
But one of the downsides is that there is a little more lying and exaggerating without looking your date in the eye.
One interviewee agrees that while sites like Facebook are great for keeping up with old friends, they aren’t necessarily the best for forging a relationship with a potential love interest.
Lynette Williams, a life coach, argues that while online daters may get along fabulously online, the only way to know if there’s genuine chemistry is to meet in person.
In my opinion, both of these discourses give too much power to either the technology or pre-existing social forces.
