Most of us are quite seasoned in the online dating world.
Regardless of which site (or sites) you’re on, you deal with the same types of issues. So what is appropriate and what isn’t when you’re first chatting online?
There are countless inappropriate requests that come in, so how do you weed them out? Regardless of how clear you are in your profile you will still get outrageous requests and stupid messages. What I’ve noticed recently is that a lot of guys are skipping to giving their telephone number pretty much right away and wanting to navigate away from the site and onto texting. It’s important to remember that stranger danger is REAL! You may think you know all about the person you’re chatting with.
They seem nice enough, but you are only seeing what they want you to see. So you have to set your boundaries almost immediately when you’re chatting online and before you’ve met someone in person and decided to move further.
Also, with most of the online dating sites having apps, just chatting on the apps works great too.
If things don’t work out, you can just delete them and problem solved. Each and every person has their own personal boundaries and you know what yours are, just be cautious and both women and men should remember that their safety and privacy comes first.
That’s why I like apps like BBM or other similar ones …you just add them without having to give your number and can chat.
