Dating for the 30′ something

Here you are…30 something and there’s no long term relationship in sight. You can actually hear your biological clock ticking. You have a few years left to find a man, make him fall in love with you, get married, and have a baby or its lights out. You already know all of the men in your social circle. Not that they aren’t nice…but none of them are your soul mate. What’s a girl to do? Consider online dating. You have the opportunity to read hundreds of profiles and look at hundreds of pictures in search of that “someone special” that will be right for you. Maybe he will live in the same city you do…maybe he will live across the country or even in another country altogether. You’re not limited to only those men that you come in contact with personally. The possibilities are endless. “Is online dating safe?”, you ask. Aren’t the online dating sites made up entirely of perverts, sexual predators and weirdoes in assorted shapes and sizes?” the answer is, no they aren’t. Not anymore anyway. That was true when online dating first came on the scene but now it is mainstream. It’s as safe as you make it using common sense and sound judgment. Use the same caution that you would when meeting any stranger. Don’t give your real name, address or phone number until you feel safe doing so. Don’t rush into a face-to-face meeting until you are confident and then make the first meeting in a public place and during daylight hours. Give it a try…Mr. Right might be a few mouse clicks away.
