We're all looking for eternal love. Whether we are 15 or 60, there is nothing more exhilarating than emotions that can turn your routine life into a romantic adventure. Every year, more and more people join Instagram, other social networks, and dating websites - places where you could meet a real prince - who is courteous, successful, and has a good sense of humor. But is it real? Let's take a look at the dark side of online dating.

The person you are communicating with isn't always real. In messages, you can’t hear intonation or notice behavioral peculiarities. Make sure you shatter any illusions with a quick video call.

We tend to show only the best photos. In the best case scenario, your online date does the same. But he could be a person of a different age, sex, or even a convicted felon. Use image search - maybe your new friend has other names and accounts.

3. Fake emotions

Even in real life, it’s hard to know for sure if feelings are mutual. In virtual reality, behind the image of Mr. Perfect, there may be a scammer interested in nothing else but your money and property. So, don’t fall for it!

4. Self-deception

People tend to exaggerate their achievements, especially when they try to impress potential mates. But you risk losing touch with reality as well as disappointing your online sweetheart. Try to be honest and take everything on the internet with a grain of salt.

5. Loss of communication skills

An online romance is particularly dangerous for those who can’t manage their personal lives. When dating online, don’t forget about yourself in the real world: attend interesting events and meet new people.

6. Addition
