Dating Safely

Online dating has become the singles bar or pick-up joint of the old days. Ask anyone who’s single these days, and most will say they’ve used on-line dating services as have all of their friends. There are over fifteen million singles in the U.K and about 3/4 of them have tried online dating. So if the vast majority have clicked and pointed a mouse to find dates and love, there will always be those who vow never to go this route. It’s too risky, too tedious and sometimes downright humiliating to put yourself out there in cyber land only to meet posers and players, users and losers. On the flip side, there are the lucky ones who found love on-line and swear it’s the way to go.

It all boils down to time and volume. How much time do you have or want to spend perusing the multitude of sites out there and narrowing in on one or more that suits you. Where to even start can be humbling and overwhelming. And what to say and post about yourself is equally daunting. You either muddle through the litany of questions and blurbs to fill or hurry through completing a profile to minimize the agony.

For those who are new to the on-line game, the novelty of it all can be exciting. If you’re not too fussy, timid or plain old chicken, it can be amusing and fun to meet behind the veil of a computer screen. When the reality of actually meeting face-to-face sinks in, some never venture out to meet their potential match because it’s like accepting rides from strangers; you just don’t do it!

Prior to the internet era, people had to go out to meet new people, mainly to bars or clubs. Married folks would take off their rings for the night and see who would take notice of them. Some were simply curious to know if they still had what it took to attract the hot number who walked in. Unfortunately, the internet has become the seedy dive bar of our time and no one can see if you’re wearing a ring. There are even sites geared for unhappily married folks looking for extramarital liaisons. Anything goes and its self-serve twenty-four seven.

One of the main problems with the Internet is it opens doors to a lot of anti-social people who have spent so much time on their computers that its easy to approach people by email and text when they could never make a move in person. They post old photos or photos that aren’t even of themselves and drag out meeting because they’re afraid to go offline. Internet sites have become adult playgrounds with fertile ground for predators and prey alike. They can stalk and be stalked around the clock and nobody notices or cares!

Working with a professional matchmaking agency is a far safer approach for those who are ready to get serious about their love life.

Online dating is for the masses where anyone can play, it’s free or dirt cheap and open twenty-four hours a day.
