Online Dating: Taking It Slow

Some people go to find love online because they are desperate or really shy. While some romances do work out you also have to be very careful when it comes to meeting someone online. First take it slow.

Don't jump at the chance to meet someone right away. Talk online and then talk on the phone so at least you hear a voice. Once you feel comfortable to meet go ahead. Meeting a stranger in person can be unsafe. You don't know who you are going on a date with and the more you talk the more you get a vibe weather or not this person is worth meeting. If the person never wants to meet that is sketchy also. They either don't like you or are hiding something.

When you meet someone make sure it is in a public place. Don't let someone sweet talk you either. Go on a couple of dates and then enter a relationship when both of you feel you are ready.

If you are new to online dating be careful. There are a lot of creepy people out there. Be safe and good luck.
