The internet never closes. It’s open for business and browsing 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Very often you don’t even know who your customers and potential customers are. Take our dating blog as a case in point. It gets visitors from all over the world every day.
When it comes to online dating profiles, they basically act as your online storefront, shopping you, and the personal package that makes up who you are as a unique individual. So, you need to be honest if you are looking to connect with a potential relationship partner who truly is compatible with who you really are.
But here’s the truth about the danger of telling the truth in your dating profile with us or with any other dating site…
Any and all personal information you want to keep private should never appear in your online dating profile. They could suddenly become online dating news. You don’t know if what you post is being read by someone across the street from your home, across the hall from your office, or across enemy lines – whatever ones you may know you have or don’t know you have.
Just because this information isn’t always available to everyone in the general public, doesn’t mean it’s private either. Naturally, using your last name, mailing address, email address, and phone number in online dating essentially means you are putting a potential bullseye on yourself. The online dating sites have permission to use your likeness, image, and information if you actually check the terms and conditions of service.
Here are 5 other quick examples for why you want to make sure you know the difference between public and private as it pertains to online dating:
Can you see how easily trouble can find its way to your keyboard? Can you see the power of protecting your privacy? In online dating, it’s always good, to be honest. However, it’s also just as good to be smart about it.
