The Real Dangers of Online Dating

Online dating has become one of the most popular ways to meet a potential partner, but it does run some risks. I wanted to take a minute and help raise awareness for the real dangers of online dating. While online dating can take the stress out of finding someone you are compatible with, it can also leave you to meeting someone who is not who they say they are. Do not even get me started on the subject of people being some other human being … remember true colors show in time, so do not rush into living with anyone you meet off the internet. Set boundaries from day one!!! 👍

There are around 40 million people who are using online dating apps and websites. That is a lot of people when you stop and think about it. You have to make sure that you are talking to a real person who says they are who they are. It is very easy to portray yourself as someone else when it is an online relationship. Here are even more dangers to be alert to and to look out for.

You can be cautious without being paranoid. Look out for these real dangers of online dating …
