I’ve heard singles for years tell me their reasons for not utilizing the internet to meet someone for dating: a.) there are too many duds, and I always get the duds, b.) no one that I care to meet ever responds to my profile, c.) the ones I do meet turn out to be something less than I thought, d.) it takes too much time to go through all the winks, emails, phone calls, and coffee dates to get to a viable person.
That’s just the beginning of the excuses, but here’s what you need to know. Dating, like any other worthwhile endeavor in your life, takes an investment of time and energy. If you lost your job, would you tell your friends and family that it was just too much trouble to put your resume together and look for another job? Of course not! This is different, of course, because your need for food, shelter, and clothing pushes you to find work, whereas dating can always be postponed.
What are you waiting for? Maybe it’s time to dedicate some time and energy to one of the most vital parts of life – relationship. Yes, you will be taking risks, emotional and otherwise. Yes, you will make mistakes along the way, and you’ll learn from them. And now the best part – you can minimize your risks by following a few basic principles for online dating. Listen now to Part Two of this series on internet dating.
