i heard of a friend who found a husband thru the internet. She is always busy with her career so the internet makes it convenient for her to meet people.

I know of about 10 over friends who got hitched this way, and one of them's getting married this month end.

It started as a normal meeting ground for people who wanted to talk and get to know more people. It develops in the end.

I don't think they wanted to find love but more to find somebody that they can talk to and slowly it grows into something different. They're smart self might put some guys off and too shy to talk to them. Maybe guys think that only stupid woman comes online/internet to chat.

After all no guys like intelligent woman, they only prefer woman who knows when to shut up. ;)

First of all, I need to understand what you meant by "Modern, Intelligent".

Secondly, if "Modern, Intelligent" has all the connotations of postitive traits, it is still an assumption that IQ=EQ.

Brothers and Sisters, please answer constructively.

Thanks :thumbsup:
In order to answer you constructively, one needs to understand the premise of the statement above, because it seems like a sweeping statement. What is your definition of a "Modern Intelligent Women"? What percentage of "Modern Intelligent Women" do you think actually resort to this? What do you mean "to find love"?

The reason I'm being picky is because what you are saying, if taken at face value, is to imply that "Modern Intelligent Women" are so lacking in social skills or attractiveness, that they have to resort to the internet in order to find companionship, which is a gross insult when you consider that the majority of the internet "vultures" out there are men. I put it to you that the majority of "Modern Intelligent Women" are perfectly attractive and socially confident and do not have to "resort to the internet to find love".

My brother met my Sis-In-Law through Internet. I think Internet is just another way to socialise apart from circles of friends.

But of course there are perverts out there who prey on women/young girls to satisfy their sexual desires. These people should be shot dead, from my perspective.

May I ask why you used the word "resort" after the positive listed traits? You are being very derogoratory to internet as a medium for people to meet. Your use of caps is hardly helping your strong and negative communication style.

I met my wife through the net. And the answer is reflected above, convenience.

internet is a modern thing ,

u do require some intelligent to ask the right questions so as to have good answer.

n the final thing is all abt choices, some choose to meet their partner in pubs, schools, cinema, tour , gym , swimming pool , skating ring , ......... many others , so y not internet.

The simplest answer would be that it's much easier to get to know someone when you do not have any impression on his looks and capabilities from the first glance.

Also, it is much more better than hunting via pubs or clubs...

Now, let's just assume that the threadstarter means the term in a positive light. That's just for argument's sake.

I think, like what many have said, the internet is just another channel of interaction, be it on a social or economic level. It's just like a brick and mortar store with it's physical interaction, the internet just gives it another avenue.

It also helps level the playing field for many less outgoing types so maybe some ladies and men find it less intimidating to talk to someone online before meeting up.

So I guess it's all about preferences. Some prefer the initial face to face interaction, while others prefer the comfort of being able to say what they like online without fear of stumbling over their words.

as said. Because they are modern and intelligent => tech savvy. You don't expect them to go to old school matchmakers already do you?

Don't flame me but Modern and Intelligent may also refer to physically not as attractive? Hence hiding behind a computer screen to find guys who like the girl for the inner content before seeing the outside package.

In simple explaination, human are naturally attracted to beauty. Which is why we have beautiful designs, beautiful pictures, in short beauty. Hence beautiful people dont need the internet to go advertise themselves. Their beauty already attracts people to them. Whereelse for unattractive people, they need to let people find out about their inner beauty before accepting them for what they are. As someone once said you need to have outer beauty before you can attract people to know your inner beauty.
