An increasing number of people are now using dating sites to meet their better halves. Do you think that this tendency helps people to socialize or does it do more harm than good? Give your opinion. Provide relevant examples if necessary.

There is a substantial increase in the number of people looking for life partners through online dating platforms. While it is a matter of choice, I strongly believe that it is detrimental because it is difficult to identify the real character of a person and it may pose some risks related to background checks. Online dating channels are

to bring different individuals at one place and search for their life partners.

is to say that their prime targets are people with low self-esteem because it is easy to hide personal reality in terms of their look and behaviour.
For Example
, a recent survey reported that 78% of the couple, who got married through online dating has been suffering from a lack of mutual understanding because their partner didn’t seem to have the same attitude as before during their meetings on virtual sites.

For example
