Cautions about online dating
If you do not want to talk to others about it, then you can just go online and do a search on Google, Yahoo, or MSN.
Enter phrases such as “online dating”, “meet someone new”, or “online personals”.
You can be virtually anyone online by typing up some clever lines and grabbing some good looking pix to upload.
So how in the world can you be sure who you’re talking to is really who you think it is?
The challenge with online dating is that someone can say anything to lure you in- whether it’s true or not, and may not necessarily be the person in the photos that they posted.Some sites cater to specific religions, ethnic groups, etc.You can also narrow your list more by writing down the pros and cons of each site that interests you and then take a free test run for each of them. There is an old saying “You don’t have to remember the truth.” This means that if you ask someone the same question, you should get the same honest answer.Recently, someone told me that they were Catholic; I thought “That’s strange, their profile says Protestant.” It could be that when filling out their profile, they selected the wrong box- but either way that set off my b.s. Keep your ears open and listen to make sure everything seems consistent with their profile and past conversations.
