We found an interesting article over on hercampus.com – you needn’t ask why we ventured over there – but in discovering it, we thought it would be a good idea to shine a little more light on the subject.
Online dating, on the whole, is seen as a fun and interesting way to meet new people. It’s a safe haven for women who are comfortable sitting at arms’ length from potentially pushy or over-eager men, and for the fellas, it gives us the means to travel through the “sea”, that we hear of so often (“many fish in the sea”), with ease.
With that being said, and as insightful as this article may be for the ladies, it’s important to note that there are very real dangers associated with chatting online, regardless of the platform or chatrooms you use; just because the app or website is presented by a reputable company, doesn’t mean that the people who use it are!
If you come across someone over the Internet that you then feel inclined to meet, it could do you a world of good to have a professional take a look before you take the plunge. Meeting a stranger, especially a man who has made it evident that he’s interested in more than just a walk on the beach, can be a worrying and potentially dangerous thing to do. Ok, ok – we might come across as worry warts, but in our line of work, all too often we hear of things turning out very differently from what people expected, so we can only hope that you proceed with a little caution. After all, you are planning to meet with someone that might not even look like the person in the photos – and that comes from our very own, personal experience!
Have a look at the article, it’s a good read and it’ll explain what to look out for when using Tinder and other similar apps or websites. Just click here to read it.
Online dating has allowed many people to meet up, and even marry – being able to interact with people who you may never have had the opportunity to meet otherwise, is a really fantastic notion. But we highly recommend that if you’re unsure about anything, or you feel that something isn’t quite what it should be, that a little guidance could always help.
