Dating online vs meeting online
Online dating is something that happens so much in this generation. There are so many online dating sites out there. What makes these sites work out? Is it the website itself? Is it the profile? What makes the dating work properly are the individuals who use it. How far are you willing to go to find your soulmate? Are you only willing to chat? Are you willing to exchange pictures, contact information and meet someday? You need to think how much you’re willing to do. We recommend you pick the site according to your beliefs. If you are a believer in Christ, ChristianCafe.com and Christianmingle.com are fabulous websites to seek your loved one. It falls within your same beliefs and its profile questions are wonderful. There are a few red flags when searching online for the special someone. Well let’s review the difference between online dating and meeting online.
Online dating means you have an actual relationship with the individual through technology. This is regardless whether you met online or in person. However, your relationship stands between video chats, social media etc. This type of dating is very dangerous; it can lead to many red flags.
Here is a true story of an online dating relationship:
They met on an online dating site. Then they met up in a public place; he came from a 6 hours drive. They met, liked each other and decided to see each other on weekends to know one another. However, he fell for her so fast that she didn’t know they were in a relationship until a month passed. Instead of stopping that misunderstanding, she went along with it to see if it worked. However, since he couldn’t be with her, he begun checking up on what she did. He cheeked her social media, hacked her phone account to see who she talked to. Long story short, it became an abusive relationship that was truly hard to get out of. The issue with online dating is; it leads to cyber (mental, legal, spiritual) issues.
Meeting online means you just find a profile suitable to your ideal partner, exchange messages and phone numbers. Once you’ve met in person(only meet in public)you are bound to slowly get to know one another. The correct type of initiative for both men and women is to have a decent conversation that speaks about “goals, dreams and what you seek.” That is the correct way to initiate. It is better off if you have this conversation on the 3rd date but it’s better on a 1st date. That way, you both know where you stand. Be friends first, only God knows if it’s meant to be.
Be the person you want to date. Do you water a plant like “showering” it/No. It’ll die. The faster you jump into something, it’s more likely to not work out. Or do you water the plant slowly for it to grow its fruits? The slower you take it, its more likely to become something fruitful and awesome.
