Although signing up for a website that allows you to sift through a pool of pre-screened men seems almost too good to be true, there are drawbacks and downsides to meeting your next boyfriend through an online dating site.

Spira believes that although finding a match on match.com is definitely possible, it’s more than likely you’ll hit a few roadblocks.
