In this day and age we live in, it’s hard to meet our true soul mate. With our rapid divorce rate climbing according to Jennifer Baker of the Forest Institute of Professional Psychology we have odds of divorcing in first marriage of 50%. Second marriage divorce rate is 67%. And third marriages have a 74% rate of ending in divorce. So there is no wonder why so many are trying on line dating to meet a special someone.
We have tried many ways of meeting our soul mates. From bars, churches, blind dates, dating services, friend of a friend, etc. Many people are turning to the world wide web in search of their potential partner.
Can someone you meet on line be safe? Well according to Charlie Reese of online tracker it’s a great way to meet someone on line but that there are still dangers that you need to make yourself aware of.
Many people come on line hiding behind their computer monitor. Their wanting to escape the world and all of their problems. They can be who ever their mind makes up. People often lie about their age, weight, marital status, job, arrest etc. According to Jason King with on line tracker you should never divulge personal information till you have had time to trust and get to know a person.
There are many criminal acts on line. Many predators looking to financially take advantage of someone. Many who are looking for nothing but sex with strangers. These are the most dangerous because they hop from person to person on line pretending to care about the person. According to sexliesandtheinternet.com one out of every four single and available men are actually married.
So why would one seek a mate off the Internet? Maybe their not on line to actually find a love. But actually on line to chat with friends or go in a chat room to sing karaoke? And all of a sudden meet someone and begin to chat with them. We need to be very cautious of all we come in contact with.
According to the US Department of justice a woman gets raped every two minutes in America. And 47 % of these women were on a date. Yes many have found true love off the Internet and have even begin dating or even married.
According to Evan Katz at advice from a single dating expert it’s okay to date off the Internet. But that women are more than likely to not date off line due to the fact that their more vulnerable.
So can one find true love off the web? Absolutely. I myself met my spouse off the Internet. I was fortunate, I listened to see if there was any discrepancies in any of his stories.
I also ask for many pictures to make sure he had not air brushed himself a six pack and a dark tanned body, straight out of the G Q magazine. I was one of the fortunate ones. We both were honest and over a long period of chatting we found love.
So no matter what you decide, be careful, and always let someone know where your at if you choose to date someone off the Internet. According to on line dating magazine.
