Tell Your Online Horror Dating Story
Though online dating can be a great tool, there are certainly a number of downsides. Many people who have tried online dating have ended up with some kind of horror story where they person they saw online was very different from the person they met in real life. Perhaps the glamorous photo they posted online was not theirs, or they exaggerated (or invented) some aspect of their personality. Sometimes, these encounters end up being nothing more than a funny story. Other times, though, your date may end up being crazy, creepy, or even a stalker. This doesn’t mean you should dismiss online dating, but it’s important to be cautious. Avoid giving out too much personal information until you know them better, make sure your first meeting is in a public place, and trust your instincts. It may also be a good idea to arrange a group date for your first meeting, just to be safe. If you feel uncomfortable, try to end the date as quickly and calmly as possible.
