Bad online dating experiences

A comment I found especially insightful was made by Elizabeth, who said: “Perhaps one of the best things about dating online is that one can know the deal breakers (smoking, drinking, how many kids, etc.) before falling for someone, before attempting to justify a relationship that won’t work.” That strikes me as an intelligent point.Honestly speaking, isn’t it true there are certain things about potential dating partners that you won’t accept? Don is a 38-year-old never married man who has accumulated vast dating experience.Realistically, he says, people are superficial; for example, generally speaking, women prefer tall men and men prefer skinny women.So women and men both search out partners based on features they find physically attractive.What matters is that you know if you like it or you don’t. Being able to describe a person based on a set of characteristics isn’t very useful.It’s the full experience of spending time with someone that tells you whether you like a person or not.Did you notice the comments from people who reacted to Ariely’s interview? For instance, a man named Mark said: “I think online dating is unsatisfying for most people because dating in general is unsatisfying for most people.” Think about all of your dating experiences: have most of them been satisfying or disappointing?

One, claimed by the groups Anonymous and New World Hackers, disabled huge swaths of the Internet itself by using a botnet — consisting of a large number of Internet-connected devices such as printers, IP cameras and baby monitors — to shut down Dyn, one of the main Domain Name System operators (essentially, an address book for the Internet). These developments show that national cyber-security is complicated and merits an ongoing conversation — informed by technologists and policy stakeholders — about how to ensure it and balance it with other values, such as privacy, fairness and even personal security.… continue reading »
