Just how safe is Online Dating?

One of things that people are most concerned with when it comes to online dating is its safety. I'm not so sure why people are concerned over it as much as they are. Lets evaluate this a little further.

Ok. When you put a profile on the net it is true that anyone can learn a little more about you. Of course that is the whole idea behind it. There are still many things that these people don't know about you though. If you take the right precautions they wont know the following.

Where you live.

Your phone number.

Where you work.

Your works phone number.

Your full name.

There are also many other important things that they may not know about you as well.

You also need to keep in mind that going to a bar or on a blind date isn't especially all that safe either. Generally speaking any date you go on isn't that safe unless you have been friends for awhile.

The point that I'm getting to is that you can actually get to know the person better before you even meet them in person. If you look at in that way its actually safer to date online.

Now all the traditional dating rules still apply. You have to trust the person, they have to be honest about the things they are telling you, and if there is no trust things wont work. That's just the way dating is in general.

Take the proper precautions and you just might meet some of the nicest people around. So be safe, have fun, and find your soul mate.
