The hormone is basically seeking physical attention and the butterfly wants to make a lot of acquaintances.
Finally, the seeker is interested in a dating agenda but isnt set on what they are looking for.
Whether your faith in online dating is lost based on previous experiences or because you dont take online dating seriously, lack of faith can lead to a lack of trust in an established relationship.
For example, if the last person you had an online relationship with turned out to be married you might be more wary in your next online relationship.
According to Joe Schwartz there are five different types of people that register for dating services: the seeker, nester, hormone, butterfly, and dabbler.
The dabbler is just filled with curiosity and does not have any real interest in dating, whereas the nester is primarily interested in finding their soul mate and settling down.
Sherry Turkle, Sociology of Science professor at MIT, believes that this new age of communication provokes people to create another aspect of them to portray online.
The woman in the quote above admits that the personality that she portrays online isnt a complete lie, but just an embellishment of her positive attributes combined with a few attributes that she wishes she had.
This lack of accountability, for some, turns the online world into pure fantasy.
In an article by Susan Barnes the appeal of online dating is defined as fantasy: People can fall in love with the idea of love and project a fantasy image on others (Barnes 139).
According to Barnes, people dating on the net are less likely to be faced with their partners faults and because of this they are not dating the complete person therefore being more susceptible to the fantasy.
