Good Evening Friends!!!
Tonight’s blog is about one of my favorite debatable topics. I love discussing internet meeting or dating with others to see their opinions and to argue mine. Earlier today I was talking with my sister about the internet and how she is really anti-social sites and any interacting with online strangers. I ask her, what’s the big deal with it? She said because you really do not know who your talking to, they can mislead you, and it is easier to manipulate someone online because you tend to invest more time interacting with someone online rather than someone in person. I told her like I tell anyone that is against meeting with someone from online, I do not feel safer being around a stranger I met at the store over someone online. I said the stranger from the store could lie, mislead, be crazy, and harmful just as much as someone online.
I said an example how many women meet someone in person really like the guy and later finds out he is married or she is not the only woman (lies and misleading). I said some women and men walk off with some stranger they meet out in public only to never be seen from or heard from again. I do agree people tend to express more emotions over the internet than in person with people. I think it may just be easier to open the flood gates of feelings when your typing. So yes you do feel a connection quicker in that case but that does not make me more vulnerable and that is “me” personally I know it may be different for others.
I told her this is how I see it rather it is a internet stranger or one from the store or any other public place cautious measures should be taken. I said I would exercise the same circumspection with an online stranger as I would with an in person stranger. I would not give someone in person my bank account info so why would I online. I would not take a stranger I met in public home right away so why would I with someone online. I feel if you conduct yourself the same way across the board than everything should be fine meaning if your already a cautious person than you will be okay. If you are more of a reckless person than you are at risk either way no matter how you meet people.
