Being Honest When Internet Dating


One of the most significant differences between dating in person and dating online is the honesty factor. It’s all too easy to embellish or flat out lie about whom you are when you are on an internet dating site.

It’s easy to lie because it’s difficult for the other person to verify anything about you when they don’t know you personally face-to-face. Unfortunately, this makes for a lot of mayhem in relationships when things get more serious.

Take for example if you state that you would like to have more children. The person you are now dating that you met through an internet dating service stated that they too want more children and this was a key factor for them in deciding to initially communicate with you when you first met online.

Now things have progressed and you are in a bona fide relationship together; happy and enjoying each other’s company. Neither one of you have gone over your profile details with each other because you figure that you will know everything about them as time progresses.

True enough but if something as important as wanting to have children is not something that you were really looking forward to, you just put it in there in the hopes of finding someone sooner, but now it IS important to your partner and both of you have become attached to one another and are invested emotionally.

The point is, a seemingly innocent lie about yourself can now be a deal breaker in your relationship or worse yet, you give in and agree to have children because you do not want to lose them.

Just a hint here, and this applies to anything you want in a future relationship with someone, if you do or don’t want children, make that absolutely clear from the outset. Something as big as wanting children can’t be a ‘we’ll see’ attitude that you can take.

Lying about details like this can have serious problems for you in the future and a few broken hearts as well. A quality internet dating site will give you the option of searching for someone who wants children and who don’t. Use their search and stick to the ones that you specified.

There is no point in entertaining a relationship with someone if your ideals and beliefs are different from yours. Should you decide and agree that due to your differences that you will only entertain a friendship with them and they concur, then by all means enjoy your new friend.

However, the majority of people are on internet dating sites to meet someone romantically, long term or otherwise, so keep that in mind when decided what to do. It’s not that it is not possible, it is, however, most people are not interested and move on quickly after an incompatibility issues comes up.

In the end, honesty is the best policy, perhaps even more so when it comes to internet dating. Save yourself the time and aggravation, not to mention the other person’s time as well, and be as brutally honest as you dare on your profile.
