Pundits and critics of online dating don't particularly believe in the ability to find the perfect match through a computer and probably opt for more traditional fix-ups or serendipitous and sanctimonious meetings that provide great stories of how mom and dad first met.
Those stories are quickly becoming few and far between, however, as meeting online seems to be the way of the future that is happening now.
Whether or not you believe online dating is a personality crutch or the epitome of laziness in American culture isn't quite the argument but rather how to avoid meeting the wrong people -- at least the ones that don't quite fit as the perfect match for you.
Hopeless romantics who use online dating certainly have to tip-toe around certainly attributes on profiles, ones that can't help but send up warning signals to stay away at all costs. Truthfully, the demographic most interested in the online dating scene probably are tired of meaningless dates and most likely are in the mood for a potentially serious relationship.
And that's how the world of online dating markets itself -- as a means to an end. That end, if you check out eHarmony or Match.com, is meeting your soulmate and getting married. That isn't likely to happen if you don't partake in certain advice that will keep you away from potential pratfalls when using these services.
