If you have low self-esteem and consider romantic relationships to be an important part of your life, you’re also more likely to use Internet dating.
I’m also just fine without one.”The upshot is that Internet dating is no longer the domain of the desperate nor those with low self-esteem (if it ever was).
We are busier than ever at work, our jobs require that we either travel or move to new cities, and as a result, we don’t have the luxury to rely on finding a partner through connections with family or friends.
Online dating sites help fill the gap that our busy lives have created in our search for connection.
In the context of Internet dating, when sociable people consider romantic relationships to be an important domain for self-worth, those with high self-esteem will be more likely than those with low self esteem to use Internet dating services.
The reason is that when sociable people consider romantic relationships to be an important domain for self-worth, those with high self-esteem will find it comfortable to present themselves to a multitude of anonymous people, whereas those with low self-esteem will be more likely to experience a higher level of stress just thinking about disclosing and promoting themselves on the Internet.Although these online dating sites attract millions of customers and billions of dollars, scientific study reveals that they cannot possibly come through on these promises.
