3 Essential Tips For Personal Safety When Looking For A Date Online

Aug 17, 2007
One of the greatest advantages of online dating is that it gives the person anonymity.

However, anonymity can also be too powerful tool to gain a person's attention through deceptions and lies.

1. Intuitions: Listen to what your gut is saying. If something does not feel right when communicating with him or her, it is probably an indication to move on. Trust on your instincts.

It may be too vague or too amusing to believe in intuition. Nevertheless, there are many cases and stories wherein people who rely on their intuition usually get positive results.

Intuition is something that is known to exist without the support of rational basis. Hence, if you feel that your online date is not telling the truth, then, chances are you are right.

Experts say that through intuition, the individual's subconscious thought can identify inconsistencies that are not easily noticed. This can be very helpful especially when somebody is a skilled liar.

2. Do not give out your personal home information too early. If your date is an honest person, they will understand. They should also be aware of the danger that may lurk in online dating, and agree on some measures for protection. In fact, they may admire you for it, because it shows that you are not cheap, nor desperate for a date.

3. It would be better for some people to ask their online date to have a chat using a web cam. In this way, they will both see each other's looks, personalities, and other things that can only be verifiable through web cams.

Here, an individual can detect a person who is trying to deceive him or her when he or she does not want to use a web cam or if there are just too many excuses.

The bottom line is that if the other person has nothing to lie about, then, everything must be kept simple and straightforward. There should be no beating around the bush while answering questions.

In reality, online dating that is free from any deceptions should be simple and based on truth, no more, no less.

Keep in mind that there are people out there who lie about their profile and the things they are saying over the Internet. Some lie about their marital status, some over their physical appearances, and some about their intentions. Be alert at all times. Not all people in online dating services are good people. Trust your instincts. Hopefully, you will find one that is honest and has good intentions for you. He or she might be your destiny.
