Self Esteem and Online Dating: It’s Tough Out There

Self Esteem and Online Dating: It’s Tough Out There

Posted by Kenny Condom on Feb 28, 2017

As Australia’s foremost provider of retail and wholesale condoms online, we like to keep up on the dating world. Today, a lot of dating is done online. We think condoms are even more important to those who date online than those who date in more traditional ways because you don’t really know what you’re getting yourself into.

Self Esteem and Online Dating: It’s Tough Out There

One of the biggest issues we see about online dating is how it affects the self-esteem of both sexes. We believe a major part of this is because those who date online ask a lot more people out than those who don’t, just from the sheer ease of doing it. When anyone is turned down after the first date or someone doesn’t even reply to an introductory message or flirt, it can have a negative effect on one’s self image. Here are a few of the scenarios.

No Reply

This happens a lot more to men than to women. Whether it’s by nature or custom, men are much more aggressive online than women. Women will get up to fifty messages a day. When someone gets that many messages, they aren’t going to answer them all. Even twenty messages a day from strangers is a lot.

If you don’t get a lot of replies, it can make you feel unattractive. You may just be setting your sights too high or sending the wrong message with your profile.

The “Right People” Aren’t Attracted to Me

This happens to both sexes. The second-most common complaint from both sexes is that the only people who contact them are people they aren’t attracted to. This either makes people angry or makes them wonder if they aren’t all that attractive.

What to Do

You just have to realize that there are a lot of people out there. The more people you contact, the better your chances are of finding “the one.” But you have to develop a “thick skin” and not let it affect your self-image. Bottom line: they are just strangers who don’t really know you. You will never see them again. Don’t let them affect you.
