How safe is safe? This is a more appropriate question in this world of chaos and unsecured world. Nobody is safe anywhere. So many things can happen even when you are at home, in school, in offices, in parks, in museums, etc. Aside from the natural incidents that may occur there are also inconsiderate behaviours of other people that can affect the lives of others.
With the technology deeply sucking every person to its world, life has become easy at the same time vulnerable on just about everything. Technology is responsible in opening the eyes of every innocent mind to a whole new wave of information. It has also made meeting all kinds of people from all over the world possible. The places and countries that were unheard from before is now within reach by a mere click of a mouse. People who have become internet savvies can penetrate into the private worlds of young innocent individuals.
What goes with the technological revolution is the simultaneous evolution of dating. Before, individuals need to take extra effort when asking a date on someone they are attracted to. They also experience the pressures and anxieties of not getting a single ideal date in their lifetime. Or the gruelling disappointment when they receive a rejection note from the man or woman of their dreams.
In this generation, dating online seemed to be the surprise guest of the century. Desperados suddenly become alive with a new hope of finding Mr. or Ms. Right. They could not help to think that somehow somewhere, the love of their lives have been waiting for them at the other end of the world.
The world has suddenly become smaller. People from all over the globe felt closer each day as they get to talk to other people from all over using this amazing technology. Travelling from one country to another has never been made easier and accessible. With these facts, hopeful lovers are never happier.
Nevertheless, starting this article with a frightful tone, no one can help think how safe is online dating really is. For a fact that no one has the slightest idea of what the person looks like, sounds like, or behaves, it is completely considered a risk to trust a person whom he or she never met before. It may be quite exciting to get involved with your virtual dates but how can one be sure that they are what they speak of in their profiles.
Much as there are people who will have undesirable intentions for others who will catch their baits, there are also those who are honest and sincere in meeting people who they can establish good relationships with. Online dating can be a good opportunity to meet people that you can bond and connect with, but the safety of meeting people who can make you happy for the rest of your life is not 100 percent guaranteed. Setting aside doubts in terms of potential criminal backgrounds- the people you tend to meet will definitely have different cultural and religious upbringings. They may come from a different family environment which is totally different from your own.
Safety must be viewed as something where the people you are dating online will totally give you their utter respect of who you really are in person. You should not be viewed as one person who is desperate to have a relationship and will dump you whenever they found someone else online again. Remember, you are not the only one they are dating. Think about how many people who are also on line and do the same activities just like you. Billions.
