Are You Talking Too Much?

Couple on a dateYesterday I was thinking about how important it is to get to know someone before meeting in person, and suddenly it struck me. You might find disagreement with this sentiment, but communicating too much can actually do you a bad service.

Why?

You have no control over it, and you just need to meet in person before you can know if you’ve found the right one. Yes, it’s one great failure of online dating. And that’s why it makes little sense to spends weeks or even months communicating via text, email, or even webcam.

Craigslist is Where Strangers Become Even Stranger

We have all heard of Craigslist. It is a blossoming online marketplace where faceless strangers meet to sell their engagement rings after the wedding doesn’t pan out, give away their dog because they just don’t have enough time to feed it, and where anyone can begin their topless dancing, food demonstrating, or surrogate mother career just by sending your resume and a head shot.

Of course you wouldn’t and here is why.

Plenty of Creeps at POF

My friend sent me this when I asked her opinion about one of the hugest free dating sites out there.

Read with caution :)

The profile question “Do you have a car?” should have tipped me off that Plenty of Fish was a joke right from the start. I, however, must learn all lessons the hard way, and this one was extraordinary.

The absurdity of the profile was multiplied by a million as I was asked to choose a fish that best described my personality. I was then encouraged to select potential life partners based on the fish avatars they had selected for themselves. I am all for some experimentation but I draw the line at dolphin on clownfish action.

How To Snag A Girl Online Using A Bit Of Strategy

Snag a girl onlineLearning how to successfully find a girl online takes a bit of strategic planning. Women who put personal profiles on dating sites tend to get a lot of perverted and otherwise nasty responses, so most are leery of replying to responses. They basically have their guard up, and rightfully so, some men have tricked women and degraded them. While many women are still interested in meeting men online they are not sure if they can always trust personal descriptions.

Beyond trusting how a man describes himself, a woman may also be leery of communications she has with a man she meets online. Obviously by chatting via emails and personal messages there is an opportunity to get to know someone, but if that person is being honest or not is always an issue. This actually happens with both genders, women as well as men are capable of being deceptive so it is wise to have a guard up.

There are a lot of crazy things that go on in the world, and people are generally behind them, so it is better to be safe than sorry. To have the desire to meet a sensuous woman online who is perfect in every way is normal, in fact it is the reason you are reading this. But to meet one that is not who she claims she is through messages and turns out to be psychotic or loaded down with more baggage than you can carry is something to avoid entirely.
