Aside from looking for love online, you should never forget about
your online dating safety. The main mistake that people make is
this: they let their guard down because they’re so caught up in
finding the elusive “one.” Having good feelings about a person is,
actually, not the problem. The problem here is jumping in too soon,
too fast. Although it may be tempting to just jump right in, here are a
few online dating safety tips to NEVER FORGET:
Keep Personal Information
Details such as your phone number or home address should never be
shared with a person you’ve just met online. There’s no harm in
sharing these details with a person whom you trust. If you do want
to give this person a chance, the better thing to do would be to meet
in person, build the trust and then share your details. That is if you
feel comfortable doing it.
Copy & Paste Messages
One sure way to find a scammer is to decipher or merely examine
the messages that have been sent to you. If you think that
something’s off, it’s likely that something is. What you can do is take
a piece of the message and then paste it into Google. There’s no
harm in doing so, right? If nothing is up, then you won’t find anything
suspicious on the Google results. But, if something is, you’ll be
thankful that you did this safety measure.
You see, most scammers aren’t good with composing messages.
They use common ones (a lot of them do) that they send to their
victims and that they use over and over again. Most of these
messages have a romantic tone, but is poorly constructed – bad
grammar and spelling.
The Sad Story
Don’t fall for it. Although you’re dating and you want to be open to
whatever comes your way, you need to understand why you’re online
dating in the first place. Are you online dating to provide people with
a therapy session or are you online dating to find love? Pouring out
or ranting about not so heavy stuff is ok (especially if you met only
about a week ago). But, heavy stuff like “my sister is in the hospital,
and I need your help” or “my mother is ill, I have to take care of her,
but I need more money” is just something that you need to avoid.
