Or maybe it is … Here is the situation
Almost everyone knows what it feels like to have a blind date. Most of us were at a point where, for some reason, their usual dating tactics no longer worked for them and they needed a new direction. So we turned to our friends for help. And what do you get us? A perfect blind date.
What’s wrong with this picture?
Imagine this scene … you accept the date because your friend has so graciously stretched his head and neck that you make someone go out with you for a night. You go on with your life and wonder if the person is really perfect for you, as your friend described. Then the night approaches. Then it happens. As you imagined. A perfect blind date … From hell.
Here’s what happened: Both of you are in a restaurant and haven’t even ordered dinner yet, but you’re already wondering whether you should get out now or give your date the benefit of the doubt as a drink just came and you know that it is doomed to fail. You were hoping for a romantic dinner in one of the most beautiful places in the city, after all it is a good first date, right? But what you actually got was a dinner that consisted of french fries and onion blossoms as vegetables and peanuts and french fries for the protein and dessert when you ended up in a sports bar and not one of the nicer ones either.
The scene somehow reminds you of something from the open camera; There’s no way anyone in the world would consider this a good first date, is there? Especially considering that it’s a blind date, you’d think they would give a little more of themselves, right? To try to look good? Yes, of course you’d think so, but then that’s the problem with blind dates, you never know what to expect. And if a friend recommended the person to you, you feel obliged to deal with it for the night, although you would much rather sit in a water torture camp to be tortured next.
The date that should have been
So online dating is exactly the same, right? Not really. Of course, when you first speak to a person, you don’t really know them, but at least you have an idea of what it’s about before you go out with them. With blind dates, you really have no idea what you’re getting into when you accept the date. But with online dating, before you actually accept a first date, for the most part you already know your name, where you live and what it’s about. And you even know if you’re compatible when you consider that you have access to their profile, and if you’ve been chatting for a while, they’ll most likely have told you more than the profile says.
The special thing about online dating compared to blind dating is that you never get stuck in a situation like the one described above when you choose the person. Such a situation is simply not possible with online dating because you know everything beforehand and what you are getting into. With a blind date you are lucky that you even know your name, right? And always, before the first date ever takes place, agree on the place where the date will take place, which means that there will be no surprises or disappointments when the date night arrives.
I just can’t explain it – can you?
Then why are there people who prefer the blind date to the online date? Who knows. I honestly have no idea why. There is really no benefit to a blind date. In fact, there is no longer a need for them as they once were. In the past there were blind dates because there was no other alternative. In the past, when blind dating was thought of, there was no online dating to choose from. So it just became a different way of meeting people.
Then when online dating came and it became popular things started to change. People realized that they would have more choices, who they could be with and what data they had. They no longer had to rely on a friend’s word on a date, so things went smoother for them. But to date, there are people who prefer a blonde date over any other form of dating. I don’t know, maybe it’s the excitement, or maybe they’re afraid of technology and don’t want to take the risk. What I know is and I think I speak for most of the dating world when I say that. It’s better to know what you’re getting into than guessing and maybe becoming the next serial killer dinner for the night ~ JC Torpey
