"There weren't a lot of people using the Internet to date back then," she says.
"I had to go to Kinko's and scan in a picture of myself for my profile." Soon after that, she was on a date.
It was kinda easy to WOO and WOW women on the phone and they not only thought me safe, they felt an almost unique connection with me.
Now I mostly would talk to moms, because as a dad, I thought them safe. Just because they read a profile and a few correspondences or shared one cocktail at a bar, they felt they knew me and felt comfortable.
As your heart protector, here are some common sense safety tips when you think he’s different: First, meet in a public place.
Yes, it seems so right and loyal and kind to only date one person at once, but let’s remember something: This person is a stranger.
I don’t care how much info they have on their profile — they are a stranger. If one pursues you consistently, faithfully and asks to be exclusive, then be exclusive.
Just be prepared for its addictive, drug-like pull.
I recommend strong doses of exercise, friend time and (honestly) time of humility before God so that it doesn’t become an idol in your heart and mind. Don’t do the exclusive thing until you have the “exclusive” conversation.
