Online dating creates a never-ending problem for those who believe that relationship is about choosing the right material. Much like trading stocks, all that you can do is to buy and sell; you cannot contribute to the success of the company yourself. So, even after buying, you are always thinking about other stocks that you could have bought which might have performed better, especially given a huge number of stocks you have access to. And, even after selling the stock, you become obsessed about how it is performing.

For those who believe that relationship is about the process, about the efforts you make, then online dating hasn’t added much value because there has never been a big problem with finding a good enough starting material. It’s like starting your own business. Great ideas are dime-a-dozen; it’s the execution that matters.

Ultimately, I think, it depends on the confidence you have in shaping your own future.
