No one wants to waste time on someone who isn't interested in them, and you'd think that people you're talking to on a dating app or site are eager to meet and go on a date, but it's not always the case even though they're the same site as you are.
While I'm not one to get things moving that quickly — I'd like to speak with you a bit first to make sure we have some things in common, and going out with you won't be completely awkward — there is some truth to not spending too much time talking online.
Like I said, for your own piece of mind it's nice to get to know someone a bit first, and be somewhat sure you feel comfortable meeting them.
If parents see their child chatting online with a person they don’t know, the parents may contact the police and make accusations against the person, no matter what the situation.
This could lead to criminal charges being filed against you. The Police May Be Posing as a Minor The TV show “To Catch a Predator” became famous for using adults posing as minors online to find other adults who tried to meet them in person.
You think that would fly back in the day when most people lived in small communities where everyone knew each other's business? Ghosts would have been taken by a village mob, calling for a witch trial. You may have encountered them out in the wild: You seem to hit it off, you're talking pretty consistently, and the next logical step would be to plan a date.
And yet, that never seems to be addressed, no matter how many hints you drop or plans you've tried to make. People are on dating sites for all sorts of reasons, one being that they're just looking for someone to talk to.
This is not always the case, but I've learned to be very cautious with someone who gets very serious very soon.
If a person is already telling you their deepest, darkest secrets and you've only been chatting for a week, you guys either have some serious chemistry, or they're looking for a stranger to confide in.
While sometimes you end up meeting friends along the way, there are some people on dating sites who are truly in search of buddies over lovers.
And if they're upfront from the get-go that all they want is someone to talk to, it's likely you won't change their mind, as unconventional as it is.
The key to keeping someone on the hook is to give that person attention just before they've completely given up on talking with you.
