Online dating dangers
You answer questions such as your age, height, eye color, interests, marital status, and personal information about yourself.You have expectations of meeting someone just right for you.Ladies, I understand that you are lonely and would like companionship, but you need to educate yourselves, and take precautions! As exciting as the attention may be, you are NOT in a race to meet someone. A lot of people post photos of themselves anywhere from 5-20 years ago! If you want to talk sooner, get their number, and block yours before calling them. Before meeting them for the first time, leave their name, phone number, and meeting place with a friend.

And if you don’t give them the money, they make you feel horrible, accuse you of not loving them the way they love you, sometimes even cry to put on a show of how much they trusted you, and are so hurt that you won’t do the same. Then, they get as much money out of you as possible, and disappear.
