This is the new world reality. You don’t only have to go to public places to look for dates. With your PC or phone you can browse through countless of “potentials” to have a go at. You can hide behind your PC and mask yourself in whatever form to any interested partner. It is that simple..
This has opened the floodgates of everything and anything good or bad in human characters. Femi can claim to be “Cindy” and get some “cute pics” to back up being Cindy. He only needs a “mugu” to fall for it. Good luck to the mugu. A lepascious Bose can upload a Beyoncé as her real person. A Bovi can claim to be Obama in the same contest . With the world of technology at an advanced rate, it would be too easy to do anything on line.
A nice lady in the chatting room might be someone you would cringe at if people saw you together. A sweet guy pinging you on blackberry or whatsapp might be a character to avoid whenever you catch a glimpse of him. I have to admit that there are many relationships that were instant hits when they saw one another in the physical world. However, we can make a guess depending on individual assessments.
The truth about on-line dating is simple: You must see each other before anything. You must see the individual on one-on-one-basis in a commitment to anything safe environment before any whatsoever. On-line dating has come to stay so we can’t do much to change a reality. It is a fact of life we all have to live with. People would always find a way to meet each other which is part of human revolution. Ofcourse everyone has his/her reason(s) for looking for a relationship. It could be for companionship, business or even something more sinister. That is how things work.
The world has changed and certain realities have come up which we don’t have any control about. My advice is this: Be careful and be safe.
Hope it’s peaceful and gentle around you… Ewolewoo!!
