E-dating provides the same emotions as dating offline.
Being on the internet promotes openness, making it easier to get to know the person on a deep level.
Dating online is less dangerous than dating offline.
Dating online is also a good way to see if someone isn't shallow, because there's no physical intimacy, they can't be dating you solely for that. You get to know people on a more emotional level.
“Mutual caring relationships require kindness and patience, tolerance, optimism, joy in the other's achievements, confidence in oneself, and the ability to give without undue thought of gain.”
