Online romances or relationship dating
has been more and more common in recent years. In older
days men and women met in clubs, restaurants, bars, at
work as well as simply taking a jog or walk. Newspaper
and magazine classified ads took over and now the
internet has become one of the biggest markets for love
and relationships. I don't know how many dating websites
there are out there, but if the number exceeds five
digits, it doesn't surprise me at all. In today’s busy
society, online dating is an easy and convenient way to
link couples together and even though this may seem like
an unromantic way to date, an amazingly large number of
dates are done this way and the online dating industry
is growing rapidly as well. So there must be something
positive about it.
Yes, there are many positive aspects with dating on the
internet. Statistics however, tell that many
relationships created through the internet are broken.
So what should we be aware of in order to utilize this
way of romance as well as possible and which mistakes in
the online relationship building process should we
Have you ever chatted with Madonna? Or
Britney Spears? Or maybe George Clooney? Are you the
most careful and tolerant person on earth; is that the
image you try to give of yourself. What if the
relationship became serious and you were caught in such
a simple lie? My advice is that you should not pretend
to be another person than you are but be honest from the
very first meeting if your purpose is to build a serious
Another mistake many people dating online make is to
meet in person too soon. You don't know the person you
date online, and you should exchange several emails or
chat for an extensive period of time before you even
consider meeting. For example this male person can be
violent and even abuse you, even though he made the
total opposite impression. You should also do some phone
calls before you meet. The point, is that you should do
all you can to know each other before you meet. This
way, the safety issue has been more properly taken care
When you meet for the first time, do it in a neutral
place, like a restaurant, cafe or other places where
people meet. During the first weeks of the relationship,
always tell family members or friends when and where you
are going to meet the potential partner, whether this is
in the partner’s home or other places. If something
should happen, they'll know where you are, and the
chances are better for avoiding a tragedy.
When your network of friends and family has been
introduced to your partner, and you start to feel sure
that this is a really promising relationship, then you
should go to the next level.
It's all about confidence, so don't jump into it in the
beginning, give time for getting to know your potential
partner before your engage seriously and the
relationship is much more likely to become a real
romance and a great and long lasting relationship.
