But is this a positive development or something to be concerned about?
Is online dating making the world better and dating more effective, or is something important being lost or sacrificed as a result?
The way the current trend is heading, what will dating be like in 2030, and will that be a better or worse time to be on the dating market than 1995? I think the term “online dating” is part of the problem and makes people who don’t know much about it think it refers to people forming entire relationships online and only meeting in person much later.

Like anything else, too much flirting is too much of a good thing and can make you appear desperate.
The key to flirting with someone you are attracted to is to be aware of the timing, frequency, duration, location and response.
The implications for these characteristics include being a clingy girlfriend who cannot bear to spend time with anyone but you.
