Is the Internet a good place to meet people romantically?

“I don’t think so, just because when you don’t see a person’s face, when you don’t talk face-to-face, who knows if what they’re saying is true?”
“No. For myself, face-to-face contact is very important. I guess it’s just a person’s style. I could see how it could work for someone else.”
“If someone’s shy, it gives them a chance to express themselves more freely without having to meet face-to-face. The downside to that is it’s easier for people to deceive you and not give the full truth about themselves.”
“I think it provides an opportunity, like many others, but then you have to be guarded and not expose yourself to opportunists — romantic, financial, or otherwise.”
