But if you are afraid to enter a relationship because you are afraid of getting hurt, you are both a cliche and destined to go nowhere. But don’t make that an excuse for breaking it off if you think it can succeed and make you happy, because it might even make your relationship better. My mom used to yell at me because I was kind of depending on her to fill some of my boyfriend requirements, like being there for me, caring for me when I was sick/stressed/sad, talking to me on the phone, sending me funny pictures of cats, etc.
Still, some find that they fear online dating because it puts too much personal information out there for strangers, or that it otherwise sets them up to meet unpleasant or unappealing matches.
The truth is, though, that online dating is as safe and enjoyable as any other form of dating, as long as you pick the right site, put some effort into meeting the right matches, and practice safety when meeting in person for the first time.
For the majority of us, dating and relationships have never been priorities in our lives.
I should know; I'm that girl in the group who is always single and constantly surrounded by friends in relationships. I love my freedom and taking risks, and I can be stubbornly fearless at times.
Anyone you talked to online could be a murderer, or so it seemed.
