Is the use of Facebook healthy for dating? (or other online communicaiton methods?) Personally, I don't think so! At first it seems like a good idea talking to someone without having to commit to actually seeing them. However, that lack of access to the real life interaction can be a turnoff. Even if you're dating the person and you start chatting frequently online, doesn't that kind of ruin the later dates? You've got nothing to talk about... nothing interesting to say as you've said it all online. It is also really easy to turn someone down online than it is to do it in person. Even if you know eachother in person -- if you want to start dating, cut the internet chatting down to a minimum. What have been your experiences with online chatting via Facebook or other chatting methods? Had any good or bad experiences with combining Facebook with dating?
