Online Dating Tips to Keep You Safe

Online Dating Tips to Keep You Safe

By in Lifestyle, Single Life | 4 comments

What’s your views about online dating? Have you met anyone on an online dating site? I must admit, it’s a quick and easy way to meet a potential partner, and start a relationship.The demands of work, family and other life issues leaves little time to meet a partner. The only spare time left for socialising after a hectic week, are the weekends. But, maybe your weekends are also busy. So, online dating becomes one of your main options.

It’s great to sit in the comfort of your home and choose who you would like to date. You carefully go through the profiles and decide whether he sounds okay or not.

Simple, isn’t it? However, what are the odds of you actually meeting a man with a genuine profile?

Can you believe everything he says he is from his online profile? Or is it too good to be true?

 

The reality of online dating

I’ve heard many horror stories about online dating. Women are getting scammed for money by men posing as single and free. Some are only interested in sex. Others have their women at home and just want to try something new. And there are those who are trying to get their foot inside your house. 

When you go online looking to meet someone, you don’t know their history. You haven’t got a clue about who they are. The only evidence you have is what they choose to tell you. Sometimes it’s the truth. Other times it’s a bunch of lies.

I’m not saying there aren’t some decent, honest men online looking for long-term relationships leading to marriage. But you may have to kiss a few frogs before meeting your prince.  All the same, if online dating is your main way of meeting a man, be careful. Make sure your eyes are wide open and your senses on alert while chatting online. And most importantly, when you meet up with them.

My experience of online dating is questionable. I met a man online a few years ago. He lived in another country. It turned out he wasn’t really interested in having a relationship with me, he was more interested in coming to the UK. His agenda was to use sweet talk to flatter me. No doubt, after getting emotionally attached, I would do anything for him (so he hoped), including helping him move to the UK. Anyway, I discovered his game and ended our short friendship.

If you use online dating sites, be aware. Follow the dating rules and keep safe.

  1. According to me one side the online dating sysytem is very useful to make two people meet each other and share theri secrets together. But if you think in the negative side there are many fake people in the dating site which will intentionally try to harm you in mentally or in physically. So it is very important for you to take a safety factors with you when you will go date with the online person.
    According to me this is much read article by everyone who is using the the onlie dating site. Thanks for sharing the worthful content.

  2. Hi June, This is a great article about online dating sites. I love your tips and advice. The digital revolution has forced us to use dating sites. However, I could believe it is scary to look for the right partner online. Do you think many of us ladies also feel ashamed to try it? Anyway, thanks again and have a lovely day! All the best,

    • Hi Clover,

      Thank you. I think with the way life has changed we have fewer opportunities of meeting a man. Life is extremely fast paced and many of us spend lots of hours at work. In addition, there seem to be many more single women out there which outweigh the number of single men. So, dating online is more convenient as you have time to read profiles, etc. And you get to choose the type of man you want to date.

      However, the downside is, there are many fraudsters out there as well looking to scam women. And there are those who have ulterior motives. So you never know who you’re going to meet. That’s why it can be scary to date online. This article is to highlight the dangers of dating online. Hopefully, women will take note of the tips.

      In terms of being ashamed, I don’t think that’s the case. In 2017 it quite normal to date online, but with caution.

      Thanks for sharing your thoughts. Have a lovely evening. 🙂
