Checking out available online partners from the safety of your swivel chair allows you a certain freedom and empowerment not often granted.
The initial anonymity allows open communication where attraction is based on who you are rather than what you look like."Somehow rejection isn't as personal online because there's a common understanding between internet daters," Lara says.
