Internet makes people less confident.
Debate Rounds (3)
As someone who met his long-term partner over the internet, I accept and look forward to you proving the resolution, "The internet makes people less confident". Good luck.
So many claims, yet so little evidence...
You've cited only one source (match.com) for a claim that, if proven true, would more likely help my case than yours: that one in every six relationships starts online. This means a little less than twenty percent of couples (who perhaps would otherwise have not found suitable partners) begin by meeting, conversing, and flirting over the internet. I'm unsure why you think this means the internet makes people less confident, but if anything, it seems to suggest that the internet makes people more confident.
You say the internet causes people to be less social, but this is the opposite of true: for some, the internet serves as a medium to meet a wider array of people than those who just so happen to live within walking or driving distance. The internet has made people more social in the same way telphones did decades ago.
Without real evidence to support my opponent's claims, he will not have met his burden of proof in this debate. However, all we've gotten so far is mere speculation (and illogical speculation at that).
Aidoka forfeited this round.
Extend all that stuff I just said.
