Are You Happy Dating Online?

Dec 2, 2007
Internet has taken over practically our life. Most of the work we do somehow related with Internet. This is also true about online dating. But some of us are happy dating online and others not. Let us discuss more about why this difference in attitude towards online dating.

Some of us are very comfortable on the computer. They are called geeks. They enjoy tinkering with the PC and are abreast of the latest. Where as some of us are in mortal fear of working on the computer. This second category will never indulge in online dating. There is a third category that has a working knowledge of computers. Let us focus on these.

Personal Information-

Most of us are comfortable surfing the Internet and sending and receiving mails. But beyond that we do not want to give any information about our person on the net. We avoid e-commerce sites that need credit card information and we avoid pasting our photo anywhere. Some are afraid to use their real name on the net. These kinds of people will never succeed in online dating because they will be never able to post a good profile.

Made-up info-

Their is another category of people. These people do not shy away from giving information on the Internet but look at any detail given by others with disbelief. They do not like to make friends with unknown people on social networking sites and always believe that a person saying they are from the USA may well be from Pakistan. For this category it is very difficult to indulge in online dating because they will always disbelieve the other person. This may happen because of some bad experiences. This may also happen because they always believe the worst to be true in their life. It is their habit to look at everything suspiciously.

In the first part of this article we discussed about habits of different people. Let us take the discussion further on the subject of why some of us are happy dating online and others not.

How often do you post in forums?

Are you active on forums? If yes you know about the different kinds of people that populate the Internet world. Forums make it much easier to shed fear of Internet and open us up to discussion. On a forum you are always speaking with strangers so that fear is lost slowly. If you are not comfortable with online dating but are keen to do it, begin with forums.

Are you comfortable with strangers in real life?

There are people who avoid strangers in real life. Even if they want to ask direction to a place they think twice before going up to a stranger and asking them. Such people will obviously be very uncomfortable with online dating. Those who are free with strangers and and make quick friends know about the art of understanding people better.

Safety of real life dating-

Real life dating is also unsafe. Many people give wrong information in real life and mislead others. Safety lies not in others but our behavior. If we are careful and go ahead slowly after finding out more safety can be had even on the Internet. Our own safety antenna should always work and we should be alert to the clues of misinformation.

What if somebody approaches you?

Let us find out about your behavior ids somebody contacts you. Suppose a stranger walks up to you on the road and inquires about something on a lonely road, are you threatened? Or you look at the person carefully and decide what to do? Are you capable of handling the situation if anything goes wrong? Or you feel helpless? This will tell you something about your reaction on any online website.
