The anonymity of a screen can sometimes make people treat online dating like a game.
However, it’s important to take online communication as seriously as you would any other conversation.
Avoid over-sharing and keep your emails brief and interesting. Talking to more than one match at a time is totally acceptable as long as you haven’t made a commitment to be exclusive with anyone.
Or are you just looking for a distraction from your marriage, job or life in general?
You might think that flirting online is harmless but you could seriously hurt and mislead someone if they think you’re being genuine.
Once you’ve found someone that you’re serious about pursuing a relationship with, delete your profile.
The best rule of thumb is to treat everyone online with the same dignity and respect that you’d like to be treated with.
