The anonymity of internet dating has afforded con artists a new playground for scams, and has allowed people to be anyone they think you want them to be because they are engaging you primarily through the written word.This site is not meant to bring forth the message that its impossible to find love through internet dating, but to inform people of the dangers that are out there.As all of us, our children included, start communicating more and more on social media, we run into strangers. Granted, I’m a grownup and have a bit more judgment than a teen when it comes to trusting people online.But our children will be grownups one day, and if they don’t have the skills they need to navigate the world of online relationships, they will run into trouble.As they enter the world of dating, it should be with people they know in a real world context, not a cyber-world context.They — and their parents — should know more about their dates than what you can find out from the Internet.Of course there are exceptions such as being hooked up by friends and family usually with someone who their punk asses wouldn’t date themselves : ). Well now we live in an age where convenience is king.
Internet dating has gained popularity by leaps and bounds, and unfortunately, so have the dangers and horror stories some have encountered.
So with this new wave of convenience comes online dating.
Many women as well as men are facing the decision of taking this new approach in searching for companionship.
Women though seem to have much more concerns and are a bit more hesitant with this process.
I have been asked many times what my thoughts are on it and with that here is my view on the good and bad of online dating.
