We have come to accept today that finding love online is almost as easy as making a cup of coffee. Gone are the days when we would spend extravagant times to dress up and look the part when we find those rare dates with men or women we met earlier in the bar, club or school. Granted, that it is very easy to throw yourself into a romantic whirlpool when you pursue all those profiles and you find yourself dreaming and feeling good about a profile you just found.
You proceed to message that person and you heart misses a beat, your head is swimming with pictures and possibilities of what you feel with this person you only just met online. Immediately the love affair has started with this virtual person and you further convince yourself that this match between you and the profile is made in heaven.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with having a bit of romantic escapacism with someone you meet through the online dating sites but this could be an early indication that you could be a pushover when it comes to the date. Advice given by many leading consultants that specialize in dating have always said to be level-headed when it comes to your first meeting with a date. Unfortunately the advice is easily said but how does one control the affairs of the heart. Maybe love needs to blossom from this romantic aura that captivates us in such a way that it propels you forward into the unknown.
Can one be so clinical when it comes to matters of the heart?
Maybe we should see the person for what they are before we decide to wear our hearts on our sleeve. There is good statistical evidence to support the argument that the initial ‘love infatuation’ can wear off after a few years because we actually like to be catapulted into a whirlwind of romance and let fate decide where it can lead us. After a couple of years we finally land with a thump and come to accept reality for what it is and perhaps throw ourselves back into another whirlwind romance.
Perhaps this can explain why over many centuries the Eastern way of matching a bride and bridegroom by arrangement can have its benefits.
