No dating befor 17
No longer do we see tabloid headlines screaming ‘meet the couple who found love ON THE INTERNET!’ For Britain’s 16 million singles, looking for love online is the norm.After all, if someone is keen to arrange a date with you, they won’t keep fighting for someone they don’t really know forever. Many match-making websites now have their own blogs, or guides advising you how and when to meet – among other tips – that you might find useful.Of course, just because you’re online dating, it doesn’t mean you should discount the chances of meeting someone offline, too.
You can ‘get to know’ someone from behind the safety of a screen.Go to parties, meet new friends and force yourself to speak to strangers – romantic potential, or not.It makes the prospect of arranging dates a lot less scary.You can gather information about the other person, but until you meet them you won’t know if ‘I love to laugh’ means Fawlty Towers or fart jokes. It’s easy to think you know a person better than you really do.
