The benefits of online dating
Identity Theft – Age old advice, be careful what you put online.
NEVER post your address on your profile as this can lead to a whole host of problems beyond identity theft such as stalking and harassment.
We use technology in almost every other aspect of our lives, so why not harness the immensity of the World Wide Web when looking for love?
What follows is a brief analysis of the dating landscape as its stands today and a rundown on the risks and rewards of putting yourself out there into cyberspace.
There is one degree of separation in an online community. The person you are now will not be the person you are a year from now. You’ll make good friends, share experiences, and ask advice.
This reduces the chance of a confrontation and hurt feelings. I encourage people to review their profile every couple of months, but keep copies of your old profile. There is nothing like the single life to give a person the tools needed to reflect on who they are, what they want, and what they will and will not tolerate. Chat rooms are a great way to learn more about yourself and make friends.
Misrepresentation can be a serious problem that will ultimately lead to disappointment, wherever possible, verify a profile picture is current or you could find out they’ve lost a significant amount of hair since 1989.
The most valuable lets people chat and get to know each other before meeting.
This lets people ask some serious questions before any emotions or attraction sets in and clouds your judgement.
It also lets you ‘block’ those people who are pursuing you, but you do not find them suitable.
There is a wider range of people to view in an online website.
