I feel that there is a good and bad turn to online dating. I feel that people who dont go out that often who is not really into bars or going out has a big advantage in meeting a nice guy on social dating sites. Many of my friends have done this with success. I also have to mention that some people may not portray who they say they are on social media. It can become dangerous to get to know someone online and not in person. Facebook allows you to meet people from all over the world! I feel like that a great thing but its not always good (Sherry Turkle, 2012).
People are becoming use to the idea of not spending quality time because of the phones and other mobile devices that takes up our attention. According to Sherry Turkle (2012), those little devices in our pockets, are so psychologically powerful that they don’t only change what we do, they change who we are and some of the things we do now with our devices are things that, only a few years ago, we would have found odd or disturbing, but they’ve quickly come to seem familiar, just how we do things. With that being said, social media is bitter sweet.

I am not a big fan of social media. I admit that I use to be, but I have noticed the disconnect it causes in relationships, or how far from reality it is. I think the process of self-disclosures will indeed affect how a relationship is developed. We tend to post all our good qualities, the best food we eat, our best outfits, our rent money. We build a good life on social media. Ignoring all the negative qualities we might have. I think people think they know someone so well but do not realize that it is a false narrative of them. It is not all bad, I believe Facebook has helped people with communication. People with social anxiety, now have the freedom to make meaningful relationships that maybe they would not have been able to in face to face situations. Social media is not entirely negative, but as read in chapter 6 section 6.1 I see a lot of Relationship schemata Expectations or blueprints we bring into our interpersonal relationship. That is the downfall for most relationships forms on social media. Sherry Turkle mentions in her Ted Talk that , we’re letting it take us places that we don’t want to go (Turkle 2012) and I believe that 100%.
