Online dating meeting in
Now, I’m not for a moment hinting at any sinister goings-on.The fact is – you’re unlikely to meet a con artist or lunatic.Of course, just because you’re online dating, it doesn’t mean you should discount the chances of meeting someone offline, too.Go to parties, meet new friends and force yourself to speak to strangers – romantic potential, or not.
Studies have suggested that anything between 35 and 50 per cent of all couples in the UK, now meet via the web.
Baldly, without meeting someone, there’s only so much information you can glean about them – knowing someone’s taste in films, music, food does not a personality make. There’s a danger of idealising them and imagining your future together before you’ve exchanged a single smile.
What’s more, you have no way of telling which bits of information are true.
It makes the prospect of arranging dates a lot less scary.
But, in the end, it doesn’t really matter how you met – online or off.
