See that girl, watch that cam, dig in the facebooking queen
Yes!!! you can have everyone you wish!
In facebook the potential to meet more and more possible mates has converted singles to consumers comparing “products” and looking for “opportunities”. I think it is the result of the modern society in general to oversupply potential chances. However the “opportunities” are only potential, usually virtual and very rarely accomplished.
Modern capitalistic societies are based in the illusion that you can be reach and happy. And indeed you have the potential. But this is an illusion because in reality only very very few men will fulfill their dream. In online social networking and dating we have an analogous situation. Individuals see a lot of stuff, compare the “products” and make choices that seldom comes to a result. Of course an individual who is lonely and isolated in traditional face-to-face environments maybe will have better chances with online social networking.But I think the oversupply of potential opportunities is enough to destroy one’s personal life and over estimate his/her abilities.The image of a couple sharing the dream of unified life is replaced by the agony of personal and professional evolution.
