It seems quick, easy and painless, and the odds of finding true love are pretty good. Every year, , marriages that take place are attributed to online dating services. One of the biggest and most common problem that arises is lying. Men lie most about age, height, and income, while women lie most about weight, physical build, and age.
This has always baffled me. Do people think the other is not going to notice these differences when they meet face to face?
Do they think their marvelous personality is going to override their lies about their appearance and income? Dangers of online dating Aside from the issue of lying, lies a worse scenario. Although most women are seeking someone online to have a great relationship with and enhance their lives, many men are seeking women for other reasons.
The internet has become a place men use to seek women, teenagers and children, to take advantage of. Sadly, the internet is the playground that predators use to lure women, for the purpose of performing scams, abductions, rapes, and murders.
It is the perfect venue for these men to find women to scam. In the beginning, a man will have an extreme interest in getting to know you, making you their top priority, and making you feel more special than ever.
They reel you in with promises of the great life they are going to provide you, and tell you everything you want to hear, including how much they love you, rather quickly. Then, after you give them your heart, they ask you for a little help financially. They are master manipulators. Then, they get as much money out of you as possible, and disappear. They have already given you so much false information about them, there is virtually no way to find them.
They are usually doing this to many women at the same time. They are often times marry to several women at the same time, because this is how they make their living.
When a person seems too good to be true, you may help put your mind at ease by running a background check on them. There are many websites available for this purpose. Studies are also show that women are having sex sooner than later, and are not being safe about that either.
With statistics like these, online dating appears scary! Ladies, I understand that you are lonely and would like companionship, but you need to educate yourselves, and take precautions!
Below are 10 tips to keep yourself safer: As exciting as the attention may be, you are NOT in a race to meet someone.
Think carefully about your screen name. You are only asking for trouble if you mislead men, by having an overly sexy name they are associating you with, such as bustybabe69, or hot4u2nitexxx. Lying about who you are is no good way to start a relationship. When they find out you have lied, they may be furious, which gives you a bad situation to deal with. Ask for as many recent photos of them as you can, and share yours too. A lot of people post photos of themselves anywhere from years ago!
This is deception and another bad way to start. Many men are listed on these sites in several states, and are playing games with numerous women. Continue using email as the form of correspondence between you and the person you are getting to know for longer than you think you should, before giving them your phone number. If you want to talk sooner, get their number, and block yours before calling them.
Before meeting them for the first time, leave their name, phone number, and meeting place with a friend.
If any serious problem arises, they and you can be tracked down easier and faster. Meet in a public place. When meeting someone for the first time, and possibly the 2nd and 3rd date too, it will minimize potential danger if you are surrounded by people. Drive your OWN car.
You may be trapped and not free to leave if becoming uncomfortable. Being in their car gives them all of the control of where you are going and when you are returning home.
When you start dating someone seriously, remove your profile from the site and ask them to do so as well.
