It is hubby's birthday today but I have not prepared anything special yet. He got so busy with work that we never get to have couple's time anymore. No more dating. Quite disappointing indeed. But, I make it a point to initiate intimate talks, cuddles and even invitation to at least go out together as a couple. It has been a while since the last time we went on a date. I was never an envious person but feel a little envy for those who really take time to set time for their partners. Alright, it's his birthday and I shouldn't be feeling this way. I will make it a point to cook spaghetti or Carbonara instead. The latter has become his favorite and I am proud that it's because of my recipe. =)
Anyways, I have a friend who is now happily dating someone she met. He was introduced by their common friend. I am happy for her now that she's find herself someone to be with. She's searched for companionship for sometime and have experienced heartaches and gone through the dramas of it too. When she was back to her feet and composed, she's tried online dating but didn't succeed. I was one of those who reminded her that love is not something you have to chase, for it will come in its perfect timing. I truly wish that perfect time for her is now and the perfect guy is him.
Along with these positive sides of dating sites comes the negative side too. There could be more cons than the pros actually.
* First, men can always lie about their marital status. Since a person can be anonymous, you really cannot tell whether the information given in someone's profile is the truth.
* Some online dating sites would require you to shell out a good amount of money before you can even reply to a profile.
* It promotes in an indirect way of antisocial behavior because you aren't physically together to build a healthy social relationship. You do everything inside the walls of your home.
* You are bound to risk meeting a possible weirdo, pervert or someone dangerous. To avoid this, one should be strictly careful.
So, whether you would like to try online dating or not, being cautious is still very important. This post may have not enumerated everything to know about online dating sites but I am hoping that I was able to impart something for you to think about. Just remember - "All that glitters is not gold".
Now, let me go ahead. I'll have to park the mouse and rest the keyboard... will start to prepare for my own date. =)
