On a daily basis, the online space is a place where we get to experience love in all its beauty without the judgments. There are millions of people online who are daily search for love and people that will fill the missing puzzle pieces of their lives. However, it is very important to note that while seeking online for love may be a great adventurous experience, it also possesses the tendency to turn out to be the worst nightmare if you are not 100% cautious and extremely careful.
Here are some steps
- Conducting a background check on the person that you are chatting with. Do not ever allow yourself to drag an online conversation to the point where you begin to develop feelings without knowing anything about the individual. As a matter of fact, this should be undertaken by you in the first few weeks of chatting with the new person that you met. It does not matter if the person ticked all the right boxes that you have been dreaming of since you were a little girl, or seems to be the right single mother that you can build a blended family with, you have to conduct an in-depth background check first. So, what is the best background check you can undertake? They are so many but you have to start at Google.
- Do not give out personal financial information. Do you want your relationship to end before it even began? The best way to do that will be to give out your personal information about your finances. It is vital that you recognize that with many VPN services being online, it is easy for a scammer to be based in far away Asia while disguising to be in Manhattan. Scammers are usually the set of people that ask for personal financial information from you in order to determine if you are rich enough to be deceived or you are not worth their time. When you begin to notice that your online lover is curious about your financial status, take that as a cue to leave immediately
- Respond passionately. There is nothing more stimulating and exciting than chatting with a lover that is very responsive to everything you type. Such people are exciting and there is always a higher possibility that the relationship would proceed to as higher stage. One of the ways that you can take to be more stimulating within the online relationship is to think of ways to spice up your chats. You can begin to engage in a kind of game that is very engaging and if you are okay with it, you can proceed to a game that is sexually stimulating. There is a caveat here: there are many psychos that are online and seeking for ways to blackmail other people. One of their techniques is that they get their victims into vulnerable positions where they ask for nude pictures. After they have gotten such nude pictures, most of such cyberbullies begin to use threat of blackmail to obtain what they want from their victims
- Request a meet up at a public place. Under no circumstance should you arrange to meet your online lover at a private place at the first occasion. You do not know how the person looks like because there are many applications these days that can manipulate both photos and videos. You can schedule to meet the person at a local restaurant or a stadium where there would be people near the two of you. Also, if you can manage, try to arrive at the place 25 minutes before the time. The reason is that it would enable you have a feel of the environment and help you notice things that may be amiss
There are many activities that you can do when you eventually meet your online lover:
- Playing sports. Sporting activities that are undertaken on a very relaxed level can prove to be great bonding moments for lovers in general. For instance, you could both decide to go to the bowling arena where you throw a few bowling balls while enjoying your company. You could also go to an ice skating venue and skate away. Such activities also have the tendency of showing you some things about the person. For example, you can identify if the person is the one that sees everything as competition or loves to simply relax
- Going on dates. When you have sufficiently been convinced that your online lover is real, you can begin to schedule more dates with the person in order to learn about each other and see if you are both compatible. If you like, you could take the relationship to the next level by engaging in some intimate moments with the person or you could decide to keep on staying celibate. Nevertheless, it is very vital to remember to be very cautious because you have not known everything about the individual
