ONLINE DATING VS. TRADITIONAL DATING l?cat=41 Dating, nothing in this world is as difficult and heart-wrenching , and yet as wonderful as finding someone to spend your days and nights with. It’s so strange how throughout our lives we are walking to and fro looking for that special someone . You never know where you might meet him or her, perhaps this person is friends with one of your friends, or maybe even you’ll meet your next relationship while at the bar.

However, the beautiful thing about online dating is that you literally begin to know the person from the inside out. Communication in online dating is the key to keeping the relationship moving forward. Without great communication skills there is literally no relationship. Thus, when you initiate a form of dating through the Internet, you really begin to stretch your skills as a communicator. We as humans mainly use our bodies to subconsciously communicate our feelings towards another individual. The study of Body Language is a fascinating subject matter, and is 100% true.
