I have gone over cheating online and getting away with it. So I thought I would talk about online dating in a positive way. People sometimes use social networking sites for dating or to try to find love. I think online dating has it’s perks. You can basically filter out what you are looking for in the person you want to date. It’s not all roses in the garden though. There are some snakes in the grass. I have gotten excited for a first date only to find out that the person online is not the person advertised. They look the same but there is no spell check for face to face conversation. To find a great catch you have to be smart. Here are some ways to find a good relationship online. Love is on you, good luck with that one.
[I] They look too hot, somethings missing
I hate when a picture does not match what I see in person. So if someone just has a head shot on their online profile. You are in your right to ask for a full body picture. Noting sleazy but you have to know what you are getting into.
[II] Be real
Some people will lie about anything and everything. If S/He is capable of lying just for an online date, then that is just crazy. You should only be with people who are real. Than again you get what you put in to things. So be real with yourself and the expectations you put on people.
[IV] I should know a little something about you based on your profile
Your profile is your window to the world. This is how people get to know you. Your online pictures should not let me know anything extra other than that your are not a mutant. Now if their profile is not informative enough remember Google is your friend. I’m not saying you need to do a full background check but don’t walk in blind either.
[V] Don’t do limbo
Start offline and face to face communication as soon as possible. It’s easy to carry on a conversation via text or Gtalk but in person how when you get to know someone. Request their number and set up a date or at least a Starbucks meeting. There is no suitable replacement for face time. That said, you have to trust your intuition. If a guy only calls at midnight aka booty call hours, then you need to let that go. I don’t care what they say. You need sunlight.
