"Researchers cited previous research that people who do traditional online dating show decreases in liking after face to face contacts." This line is true to an extent. Profiles in and other dating sites do not contain the whole package. These profiles are only an overview of what the user's interests are. I believe that is the reason why some lose interest in their dates after face to face contact.
