Online Dating Intimidates Women from Seeking Relationships IRL

Do you know anyone who is in a relationship with someone they met online? New research finds that online dating has caused people to be too afraid to approach potential partners in real life. Psychologist Emma Kenny calls the phenomeon "Tinderalla syndrome," and says, "The problem is, online dating breeds impatience and insecurity. You're suddenly inundated with so many potential love interests that you stop investing the same amount of effort into meeting actual people offline."

Match.com's Kate Taylor disagrees, saying, "Mobile dating apps are actually helping people flirt and chat with each other-- they make people feel more confident when they end up talking face-to-face." Kenny adds, "Online dating was designed to enhance your love life-- not replace it altogether."
