So go ahead and get to know someone online, but don’t take things too seriously until you come face to face with the reality of who they actually are. Bring it into real life: Online is a great place to start a relationship, but it’s NOT a great place to maintain a relationship.
If you’ve been getting to know someone for months at a time but haven’t met or interacted face to face- then there is a good chance that something is not as it should be.
If you’re going to enter the world of online dating- always leave your genuineness and honesty fully intact. Bring wisdom: The second most important thing to honesty, is the idea of wisdom.
When it comes to online dating, always be a skeptic.
With that in mind, always use caution and discernment by meeting in public places or in groups of friends for the first series of face-to-face interactions.
