There is a very real chance you could meet someone living just up the road from you that you never knew existed, but thanks to online dating, you stand a chance of making your dreams come true.
In order to remain safe on the online dating site, start off your experience with each prospective date with caution. Begin your search through the use of a screen name that others will address you as when they wish to contact you.
Progressing to first names is not too big a step, but giving out your last name certainly is- do not do it until you have spent a reasonable amount of time talking to the other person and have a feel for the kind of person they are.
And, the recent proliferation of devices, from smartphones and tablets to Internet-connected appliances, has opened us up to even greater risks. We know you’ve heard it before, but creating strong, unique passwords for all your critical accounts really is the best way to keep your personal and financial information safe.
But the good news is that by taking just a small handful of security measures we can greatly reduce our exposure to all these threats. This is especially true in the era of widespread corporate hacks, where one database breach can reveal tens of thousands of user passwords.
The fact is, if you Internet dating can actually be a more rewarding experience than dating out in the “real world”, and you may even be more insulated from a negative experience on the Internet that you would be in a face to face situation.
